Just made a mammoth post about this, clicked Post and didn't realise I'd lost my connection to the internet.
Uni connection is f**king abysmal.
Probably for the best, you'd have only got bored reading it.
But ye, great call Knights on that match, and thanks for the highlights Bev. Mostly forgotten about this match somehow, god knows how. Andy at his very amazing best in the last two and a half sets. The two points from 19:43... wow.
Such a typical roller-coaster match. Could so easily have gotten away from him at set point down, 2nd set. Clung in there, then goes break up, then broken back serving for the set.. only to storm the tie-break. Came out on top in the real huge points (set point; second set, the tie-breaks).
A brilliant match by two amazing fighters. Andy is so good when he's that aggressive (and has the confidence to go with it). He's playing like that more and more often these days and he's so good when he's on form (the last two meetings with Nadal and Djokovic are proof of that). Unfortunately when he's a bit nervous or not moving 100% he can often slip back into his old passive self (Federer Dubai, Garcia-Lopez IW...). Hopefully as he goes with Lendl he cuts out on those sort of performances and plays more often like he can.
Also, anyone notice Wozniacki in/just behind Andy's box? She seems to be a fan..
