YE ranking isn't the end all, most important is being ranked in the top 4 going into the AO which means Brisbane might yet play a part.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I am now 64 and it is getting harder. I did 54:41 in 1977 for 10(so you can see I had and do still have a good turn of speed) but have gone faster at the start of longer races. A 60 year old did 54 minutes last Sunday but he is a legend in the oldies. Now going shorter (it is over quicker) and more enjoyable. Yesterday  I wanted to run around 40 minutes for the 10Km so disappointed most that I missed out. My problem is that I am too competitive so have to "win".

Perhaps that shows a reason why I follow AM. If the family do games at Christmas I have to win. I refuse to join in to avoid embarrassment! I understand that Judy has made comments regarding Andy never wanting to lose in that situation.

Next year I am thinking about a new track racing career when I turn 65. 800m sound good fun. Just two laps flat out.

Does anyone understand what I say about Federer?  His quality in his prime was that he was so quick into position he could play spectacular winners but now he cannot so his play is more ordinary. I do not dispute his ability when younger. It is the commentators inability to understand this that really upsets me. I do not expect to see him challenge in the rankings next year!

I broke the 60 barrier for 10 - but on an unofficial training run with my legendary uncle. He ran every day for 11 years and 33 days, inspired by the great Ron Hill. Sadly my uncle has Parkinson's now. I do the GNR to raise money for Parkinson's UK. Well, I did, but I fear I now have arthritis in my knee.

I know what you mean about Fed's speed.

I hate the thought Andy of playing Nadal/Djokovic in QF when he is unready to face them.

That is so right.  For a while he will have doubt and that is when sportsmen lose. Been there. Am there!
The more you lose the more you doubt so it is a tricky time. That is why some fairly low level events could help. Less pressure. A time to gain confidence and test the body gently?

Will Andy get any points if he plays in the Davis Cup tie in February? Is it just ten points for participation (40 when a win) or can he gain another 15 if he won both his singles as in the play-offs? Assumed it is all cumulative.

Delpo will need to reach the Final at the O2 to overtake Andy - hopefully that's unlikely

I doubt.

What, because he put in a half ass performance vs the swiss one today, and still took a set?

Well he can beat anyone when on his game, but the pressure of being at least a half hearted favourite might lead him to play bad. Plus Rafa won't want to lose to him again, Nole is playing well and Roger might show up in good form too.

I don't think we should underestimate what a roof and thousands of baying fans do for smugfed.  While I don't think he'll win WTF I wouldn't be surprised if he gets to the SF at least.

I have two exec tickets for the finals day on Monday. I just don't want to see Federer as one of the players, with a possible repeat of last year's disgusting conduct by Federer's supporters when they booed Andy's every shot.

If Federer were to reach the final, I think I might forgo my tickets and watch it on tv at home with the sound off.

Federer is a joy to watch live, you would miss out big time.

I don't disagree about Federer's playing performance as I have seen him play. It's his supporters I can not stomach!

His supporters are beyond the pale, their behaviour is appalling. Those who cannot behave should be thrown out of the 02.
