re tennistv, you can buy a tournament at a time. Probably you can't get Bet365?

I tried Bet365, but when I realised you couldn't get a fullscreen picture, I got rid sharpish.  I like to watch the streams on my large-screen tv so fullscreen is a must for me.

Doesn't look like a bad draw at all so provided Andy isn't tired out by doing so well in singles and dubs in Tokyo he must be in with a good chance.  I guess he and Rafa won't play till wednesday so should have time to recover I hope.
At least Shanghai is only about 3 hrs plane journey and just 1 hour's time difference.

Re the draw - Rafa has a tougher one than Andy, although the media are already speculating on another Rafa/Andy final.  One match a time, please, guys!

Am wondering if this win will have an unintended consequence. Am sure that Andy has always been highly respected and thought difficult to beat, by the other players, but owing to his awful body language and frequent mental lapses, every Tom, Dick and Harriet thought they were in with a chance.
However, the news that Andy gave Rafa a bagel will have spread like wildfire throughout the tennis world. Hopefully this will give   Andy more of the aura of invincibility that Rafa, Fed and Nole have, even before they've walked on court.
If players feel a bit more awe and fear when playing Andy, it certainly won't do him any harm thumb up

Good post BBH! I agree! Also, when he overtakes Fed.......no excuse for treating him like 'an also ran' at these tournaments where he gets relegated to the lower courts and making him play at the most unpopular times of day!

Just returned from camping trip.  Was able to watch sattellite tv 1:00am my time to see  Jensen Button win Japanese Grand Prix live whilst hubby constantly checking live-score of Andy/Rafa match on his i-phone at the same time.  Was worried after 1st set, tentatively excited after 2nd, THRILLED to see he won with a 'bagel!'.  Wish I had seen it!  Then I found out about the dubs.  A perfect day:)  
Sounds like he's finding those elusive extra percentages?... great work by Andy, well deserved after all his hard work. Onwards and upwards......

Yep, absolutely right. It's the "presence" and the persona- the ability to put the fear of god into the others.
There's a vulgar analogy that expresses this better but I wont post it, or I'll be banished forever! w00t
