Hadn't watched mixed doubles for years before today! Andy and Laura were so good when it mattered on those last few points in the MTB. Huge for them both. Looking forward to a day of tennis finals tomorrow with those guaranteed medals!
I'm the same Jules, almost never watch mixed doubles, but it's really interesting! Clearly the men target the women, being - at least on paper - the weaker partner. And then there'e the service games, where the men are expected to win easily, and the girls to struggle. And then this is all even more tense in the tie breaks - you get a point up with the opposition's girl to serve next, and you hope to capitalise!
And yet it doesn't always work out that way! Sometimes the girls rocket in a serve, or a return and it's game on.
I have really enjoyed these three MD matches - and roll on the fourth!
By the way, isn't Andy magnificent? No offence to Laura, who has played her part, but Andy has been utterly superb.
Roll on tomorrow!
