SCHEDULED 3RD ON CC after Williams/Zvonarava and Hewitt/Djokovic.  Estimated time - 4:00 pm.

Robson/Murray vs Hradacka/Stepanek scheduled 5th on Ct 18 (say 7:00/7:30 pm?) so could be a bit tight for Andy if earlier matches are long, although I assume players are still allowed the usual "suitable rest" period?  A 3-setter for this match wouldn't surprise me either, although I'm not making any predictions!

Gosh, didn't realise that Andy would be playing again so soon!  Best catch up on my sleep again before the match.  I'm thinking a 3am to 4am start for me then.

As much as I like Marcos, and they do have a close H2H, got to go for Andy but will be a tad nervous - don't take anything for granted (even though Andy's won their last 3 meetings).

Craig - probably will be on my way to work when the doubles is on.  Can you record that for YouTube Murraysworld?  Please? Very Happy  Oh, only if it's available to record that is - I don't expect you to perform miracles (well not yet anyway lol ).

Great pics of both. Smile   Better catch up on your sleep Bev, because if Andy gets through, he'll be playing again on Thursday (QF)!

I must say the (real) Wimbledon score makes me feel nervous given this is best of 3.  Andy will have to play at least as well as he did then, if not better.  This is going to be his first big test of this tournament.

Baggy plays hot and cold but agree this is going to be a lot harder for Andy.
However, he's playing gr8 and is obviously a man on a mission so
Come on yay yay yay

 So disappointed to be missing this one as I really like Baggy yet of course want Andy to dispatch him as quickly as possible.  Will put on record when I go to catch my train.  But if we could have the dubs on youtube as requeted by Bev that would be wonderful Craig.
If Andy wins and again tomorrow he'll be playing again Friday in the SFs. There's then a day's rest [but not if still in mixed] before finals on Sunday.
Assuming Andy gets through today - and while I'm disappointed at missing it I guess it could be a tense affair - do hope he's playing latish tomorrow so I can get home in time. 
Go Andy go. cmon yeah cmon yeah cmon yeah

With Baghdatis one of my favourite players altho, now without his army of noisy supporters I am sorry to have to wish his swift disposal at the hands of Murray. The pressure of this unnecessary mixed doubles requires this, as so many people say   no pressure

Back on the PC now!

Good luck to Andy for the Baggy match a bit later. Go out there, stick your chest out and put your foot on his neck as soon as you can son. cmonandy

Also, good luck to Andy and Laura for the mixed. I want to see that one, I didn't see the Hopman Cup.

What with Team GB getting their first gold today, let's hope we have a great day all round.

Can't say more than whats been posted here already well done Andy. Psychologically all our Andy has to do is draw on the memory of his last match against Marcos three weeks ago here at Wimbledon in particular sets 3 and 4, playing with the same intensity and urgency (imagine he is up against the clock again), and keep Marcos running a lot.  If Andy can draw Marcos into this memory too, its likely the effects of this could be the opposite to Andy and that is Marcos may start to feel negative about his chances. Good luck Andy. Believe! yay
