was about to say something v similar to bbh. Of course prod you have the right to say it how you see it and sometimes those most pollyanish about Andy's chances are the loudest in condemnation, if he doesn't come up to expectations. But putting it in the way you did almost sounded defiant even though I'm sure that's not how you meant it.
I was going to say that too!
I realise Prodigy likes to write in very short, partial sentences, never mind give explanations, so what is probably intended as an opinion, or intended to helpfully contribute knowledge reads more like a gloat, or childish defiance. It risks coming across like some kind of football chant designed to wind up the opposition, when I'm sure some of the time that isn't the intention, but it can be hard to tell.
Apart from anything else, giving an explanation for reaching a particular opinion makes for a much better discussion. We can all read the poll if people don't want to explain their views.
Personally, I would expect Nole to win too, but I hope Andy will make it competitive. I am hopeful that Andy might be able to take Nole slightly by surprise. If you can push the points situation to the back of your mind, Andy has a lot less to lose from this match, which will hopefully help him play more freely.
Andy has definitely been playing better, and getting into the habit of straight set wins is progress, but I've banged on often enough about how Andy's return to full form will be two steps forward, and one step back, so I remind myself as much as anyone else that we can't assume that his improved form is completely permanent.
