Yes its great to see Andy relaxed and smiling, he's done so so well over the past few weeks. Winning three tournaments on the trott. What an achievement, that should keep all those doubters in their place. That win over Nadal in Tokyo was tremendous. I have never seen Andy so focused and playing so well. Nadal said it all saying Andy was "Unstopable" he was so so right. I am glad he has had such a good swing of the asian tournaments. That should keep Mr Smug in his place for a while. C'mon Andy finnish this year with a flurish and take your brilliant play into the new year. yay yay yay cmonandy

Right on littleb!  But the doubters will just crawl back under their stones ready for the next time Andy falters - and everyone falters at some point as he can't go on winning for ever!  Even Nole didn't manage that this year.  Nothing will persuade the true doubters of Andy's magnificence.

Well Andy.....Four championships in three weeks! Wow! Thank you for all the wonderful [if sometimes nailbiting] entertainment you have given us this year so far, and moreso in the last three weeks! You have done us all proud, and rewarded us for all our faith and belief in you! You had a very difficult match today, with a worthy opponent who may have beaten you if youd've lost your head, but you didn't! Oh......we could see he 'got to you' a couple of times and you lost a few points, but you managed to keep your cool and get back on track before any real damage was done! You played a blinder son, so enjoy your well deserved rest, and we'll see you soon! Looking forward to it........Well done Andy! hug

I could not agree more with you Caz. We tend to forget Andy is a mear mortal and goes through life with the same feelings and problems that we lesser mortals have. But it is his skill and determination that he shows that we love. He never gives up, he has his bad times like the rest of us but he overcomes them and lives to fight another day. That is all we can ask. He does us all proud and we cannot ask him for more. Have a good rest Andy you deserve it. hug hug hug

He's done it - a super hat trick - No.3 from now.  He's sending a text to Kim while he waits.

How do you know it's Kim, whom he's texting? Could be his Mum, Jamie or Federer (telling Fedex our Andy is NUMBER 3)

Lovely what Andy said about Ferrer too.  And good for him at least trying Mandarin. 
Aileen nothing will shut Andy's detractors up. And notice how quiet some MW members have gone?

Unfortunately, Ruthie you are correct.

It will take Andy to win Wimbledon, USO and AO for "The Hate Murray Brigade" to soften up. Even then they will come up with reasons why Andy won; such as:-
injuries to opponents, easy draw etc, etc.

Oh and Andy said he might play Valencia or Basel and will decide after a few days rest.  He said he'll play whichever Sky is covering and Marcus said Sky will cover whichever he plays at.

Ruthie, I'm still betting that he will play Valencia, both singles and doubles with Jamie - 500 double points to defend

If he keeps going back and winning he'll have to learn it!

My son can teach him Mandarin. He's at present in Nanjing at their University.

My dear neice, Caz, maybe that's one of the reasons it's taking wir Andy so much time to achieve the pinnacle of tennis. He should sometimes take leaves out of s***-***e Federer & be nasty on occasions to his opponents.

But that is not Andy's way. He always praises the man on the other side of the net.

I have to say guys, I do love reading all your posts after a match! If my computer wasn't so slowwww and my typing was faster, I'd be on here posting too, but by the time I've switched from the match to the thread and typed in my post and switched back again, I've missed half a game! w00t No matter though, as I'm usually shouting the same things as you lot are posting! e.g.     "Stick it intae the net Ferrer [or whoever]........Wow...nice one! Can yae dae that again son?" or......"C'mon Andy, we need a couple o' aces noo! Jist dae wan at a time! Oh....good boy! Right son....Can yae dae two in a row? Naw? That's ok......jist dae a big second serve then! Aye......That'll dae son!" or [if he misses a biggie] Ok Andy that wan's gone.....jist let it go....keep yer cool'n concentrate....ye'll be awright!" My neighbours must think I've 'lost it', but that's ok......Just as long as Andy doesn't!

Yes that would make sense wouldn't it OSS though he might just decide to rest up to be as fresh as possible for 02, which is his next goal.  Btw Sky only shows end of the week of th 500s from the thursday I think.

I've tried to change my avatar several times the last few hours, but its not updating with the new one. Is there a time delay or something?
 A similar problem occured 2 weeks ago, when suddenly it resolved itself, so something not quite right.

Perhaps Smugfed has hacked into the system as he cant stand Andy being No.3 and the centre of attention?

Finally after hours, the avatar is the right one now! So it must be a timing problem perhaps? 

Anyway, I'm happy now, Ive got Andy proudly holding the Shanghai trophy
 yay trophy kicking yahooo
