So...we approach what could be Andy's last tournament of his remarkable year. And its a nice, amicable little competition between Scotland and England.

Can Andy cap an extraordinary season and beat another player ranked higher than him?

Is Greg more of a challenge than Tim?

Any predictions?

My prediction- 7-5 7-5 (Murray Win)

The Scottish crowd will be right behind him!!!

They are playing reverse singles - one match on Saturday and one on Sunday - so two predictions in order!  I think it'll be one each - although I hope Andy wins both .....

They are playing two matches... what if they both win a match. There wont be a winner!!!

On the plus side however, that means we get to see Andy even more!!!

How many people going to see it?

Well I support Andy, but I don't want Greg to lose completely... I'm hoping they get one each. Smile

Congrats ellyb, I guess living in Aberdeen has its benefits and perks sometimes....

Thats quite tough, but I guess its only 3 setters, so he wont be too tired.

Any idea of the capacity of the venue?

Not too bad, Centre Court is about 14000 isnt it?

I might be wrong....

I definetly want Andy to win, I think Greg is a bit of a fiery character and there was no need to rant at the ref against Roddick

Yes, I've never taken to Greg myself.... and I really can't put my finger on why this is.  There's something false about him that makes me feel uncomfortable....

Wow, I didn't know that either... but it doesn't really surprise me.  I think Andy just attracts attention.. even people I know who are not into tennis at all say that they've found themselves watching when he's been playing.

Yep....the BBC could get high figures but Sky have beaten them to it. I prefer Andrew Castle to Barry Cowan though, and I dont even like Andrew Castle...

I like John Lloyd and John Mcenroe at Wimbledon. Even Barry Davies was great
