Ok, thought I'd best start this thread since the match is going to start in less than 24 hours.

Tough opener for Andy but it's one that he can win.

H2H stats below.

Andy needs to come out of the blocks straight away for this one.

2nd on centre court following a ladies match, so start between 1 pm and 2 pm UK time, I'm guessing.

Some stats to either calm the nerves or throw petrol on to the fire.

Andy's are first.

At least Andy won't be coming to the match cold having had a good work out today whereas this will be Stan's first match and of course he didn't go nearly as deep at Wimbledon.  So all being well Andy will come out all guns blazing.  He could do without another long match tomorrow though of course the 2nd round match won't be till tuesday so there'll be time to get over it now he's out of the dubs.  
Go Andy Go  cmon yeah cmon yeah

He's probably in a constant mist left behind by RF's trail! (tongue in cheek). Very Happy

Wawa looked perfectly OK at the opening ceremony, although his attempt at smiling looked more like a grimace! 


Andy talking about his doubles match (BBC website) -

"It was tough. We played well ... We were a break up twice in the third set. We had enough chances to win the match, but each time we got the break we got broken straight back, so it was tough."

Asked about the raucous crowd, he added: "They did a great job. They were really loud from the first point to the last.   "They helped a lot. You don't always get that for doubles matches and it was a really nice atmosphere to play in. I hope they enjoyed the match."


I hope Andy gets the same crowd support today.  I also hope he doesn't dwell on that match but gives his undivided attention to the singles and comes out firing from the start.  He needs to take advantage of the fact that he has at least had a warm-up match even if the outcome wasn't what he wanted.

I probably shouldn't joke about it, but maybe he is. I mean, he has to find some way of shutting out Smugfed's ego doesn't he?
