Andy played yesterday - Novak/fed half today
Andy should be playing on Sunday
Or maybe Monday (sorry Elena, just seen your post)? Given that the final isn't until next Sunday, surely there must be a two-day break at some point and the early stages of the tournament would be the obvious place to have it with so many players still involved? But everyone can rest assured that, as soon as the time is known, it'll be prominently placed on here.
However, I don't care what time it's on - I'll be there, even if I have to take my laptop out with me. Apart from anything else Andy's going to need all the support he can get. I'm very wary of Raonic. He has no fear of the top players, has nothing to lose, and, as he says, the door of opportunity is going to open for him at some point - just hope that this match isn't that time.
I still maintain though that he isn't up there yet tactically, so if Andy is playing well and doing well on serve - and placement can be just as important as aces - then I believe he can do it, particularly as he has the one thing Raonic lacks - EXPERIENCE. However I'm expecting 3 nailbiting sets ... and on that note am off out to buy some of Bev's highly recommended Dr Bach's Rescue Remedy!
Hope Lendl has been on a scouting mission. Hope Andy is on song and trounces him
Lost interest in tennis during the Sampras years
Supported mad Andre.
Same here. Pistol Pete was the kiss of death to the game - all serve and not a great deal else. Thankfully we did have Mad Andre, who was not only a great player but had a great personality to go along with it. Andy picked an excellent choice for his role model.
