I cant even think about that, my light will go out then. My eyes are watering just typing this line. 

Did you like/watch tennis before Andy?
I shall be sad when Andy retires, hopefully he'll play for another 4-5 years, this, in spite of what his critics say is a very special time for his fans and his country.
However, my serious tennis watching goes way back and I'll always love this beautiful game yay

It's a pity more people don't appreciate what a special time it is bbh.  Like you I loved tennis before I loved Andy but have to admit my love of tennis has intensified 100fold because of Andy so it will be a sad day when he puts his racquet down,   But keep your blueberry stained mitts off Grigor - I got there first  Little tongue man

Yes chris, I agree it'll be a sad day when Andy hangs up his racquet. My level of support has so taken me by surprise, that I can't picture replicating it for another player.
I think this quote sums it up best as regards my tennis watching: "Anyone can catch your eye, but it takes someone special to catch your heart."

  Actually I think Andy will still be worth watching when he leaves the tour. He's a very clever bloke, devoted to tennis and sport in general. Its still in the unforseeable future, but i don't see him vanishing into the history books.

Andy Murray's defeat to Juan Martin Del Potro at BNP Paribas Open may do him a favour - Telegraph http://t.co/5THAxgHbNP

Decent article, Andy says he would absolutely take his break after Australian Open again because its about benefiting (sp?)  long term not just in your first tournament plus the match with JMDP has highlighted what has and hasn't paid off from the Miami training block so he knows what more needs to be done heading in to Miami Masters.

^Thanks for the article, Milly. I always love to hear what the man himself says.
And like I said earlier.. Onwards and upwards, Andy!

“A hundred per cent I would take that break again,” he said. “You have to look further down the road sometimes and not just focus on one event.
 
"The tour is extremely hard and physical and I hope by taking a break now – I wasn’t expecting to play perfect tennis this week or play my best – when I get to French Open, Wimbledon time, hopefully I’ll be a bit fresher than I have been the past few years.”

“I need to just keep working and see the things I can improve on, because obviously it doesn’t matter how much you practise – you can hit the ball great in practise or work on loads of things but when you’re in those tight situations, you can’t substitute match play and playing in tournaments.
 
"So, it’s good that I managed to get four matches here and a couple of doubles. Hopefully that will help me in Miami.”

Thanks Milly.  That article makes me feel a lot better.  After years not playing delpo, it's quite possible he could be playing him frequently in next few months so it's good if it has reminded him how to play him (though in IW he seems to have been pretty unplayable).  I like Andy's long term thinking.

Both Andy and Nole need to learn how to deal with that slice, and fast. How ironic that a normal tactic of Andy's was used so effectively against him. Wake up Andy!

Sums it up for me too MP.   I've enjoyed watching lots of players over the years but it was fairly easy to find someone new to support as the old one moved on.    Before Andy the player I liked best was Pat Cash but I know I'll never be so involved with another player as I am with Andy.   He's the only one who can get me to set my alarm for 3 a.m.!!!!

I seem to remember Federer using the slice well against Andy in the past too. It's always a shot I enjoy seeing - one of the reasons why I liked Andy's game in the first place. I never thought Delpo would be able to use it so well, good to see him introduce a bit of variety into his game, even if he was forced to because of the wrist problem.

 I think that Andy and Novak play better on a faster court and Indian Wells is quite slow, which suits Del Po, so that may be a factor to take into consideration.

Yes they say IW has odd combination of slow court but balls moving fast through the air.

Yes, I have always loved the tennis, been watching for years, but must admit never set the alarm for silly o'clock to watch any tennis player, even though I had quite a few favourites in the woman and mens. Andy Murray just captured my heart when I first watched him as this wee skinny lad and I thought he played brilliant even though he lost, after that I followed him nonstop to where he is today. I don't think I will ever be so passionate for the game when Andy no longer plays.

I have always followed tennis even as a teenager as my family played and my father played for the army and was an umpire.  I remember the day of Nastase etc.
