Hey, I chose a similar one of Andy! No favouritism from me.  What you need is a shirtless one coz everyone came up except Milos for that one! Very Happy  Even a few nude ones of Lopez and Verdasco! blink

BTW, that shot was from his recent win yes

Andy: They said if I cut my hair it would make me more badass.
Milos: Haters gonna hate.

Just got done watching the match from today.  It was funny to watch Andy break back after losing serve in the second set making it 2-2.  He suddenly got very aggressive and hit some great shots to get back on top.

Raonic is a big guy and not a skinny big guy, so I think that Andy needs to run him back and forth and forward and back.  He definitely doesn't have Andy's speed.

So Andy, hold serve by all means, and get back Raonic's serves and run him like crazy.  Good Luck Andy, go out there and play YOUR game, and don't give Milos anything but a hard time. It the Scots vs the Canucks Bagpipes

In my defence.. may I just repeat this (from another thread).... toast

See.. I found out today for certain my true allegiance lies with Andy.  I didn't set my alarm to watch Milos in the middle of the night on a dodgy stream, whereas with Andy I do.  Never a doubt, really.
Just got up to read here Milos won, fantastic news.  Here's hoping it's an Andy/Milos one next.
Go Andy! clap

Aye.
Being originally from Michigan, I've spent much time in Canada.  Often people would think I was from Canada as the word Aye just automatically came out of my mouth.  Great Hockey between the Toronto Maple Leafs, Montreal Canadiens, and the Detroit Redwings!!

Went to Michigan NASCAR  a couple of yrs ago.. respect Apollo. but frankly more hubbsters cup of tea than mine.. but still had a great time! yes
Toronto Maple Leafs suck.. but still support them... our day is on next horizon. Tickets are hard to get... all about the corps and stuff the fans.
Now then... onto the term `aye`
In Canadian terms, it is pronounced just as you said.. but spelled `eh`
In Scottish terms it is pronounced `eye`, as in capital `I`.
Still further proof of cross-culturalism in my view..
Go Andy...Go Milos...
(And now I`ve just found a new avator!)

Raonic is about 19-3 for the year. I'd dismissed him as a one-shot wonder, but I might have to start taking him seriously...

I think he looks like someone out of a boy band.
Sorry I won't see the match but at least I'll have a less stressful morning as a result [and my sofa has just gone for re-upholstering so nowhere to run nowhere to hide till it comes back].  And if Andy wins I'll be able to watch tomorrow, and if he loses then I won't be sorry to have missed it. 
Have a good morning you all.

As usual, I shall be watching in my office on Sky, Bet365 and following the scores on ATP website. However, I shall be working at the same time, so I have recorded the Sky presentation at home.

Again, Andy's opponent is someone he has not played previously. No predictions other than Andy will have to be at his utmost concentration and serving towards his best. No DF's.

17/4, as per the playing activity posted on the previous page.

Anyway, it's not May yet and this is a 500 event get out

Clay return points won :

2009
2nd First Serve
23rd Second Serve

2011
1st First Serve
3rd Second Serve

Only had a real problem returning Berdych's first serve on Clay, even against Gonzalez in 2009 at RG he didn't do that badly.
