Also why do I see everybody saying Murray will play on Saturday? I thought they changed that this year and it's going to be on Friday?

I'm afraid they're not changing the schedule until next year, Laundry.  The two men's semis will be played back to back on AA on Saturday and the women's final is in the evening.  I hope that Andy is up first so that he has more time to recover for the final.

I am looking after the grandchildren all week end so will be unable to watch any matches.  I dop not usually watch so maybe it is a good thing.  i find that if I watch or keep an eye on the score he seems to lose so I wioll not risk it anyway.

My bold prediction is that this thread will be close to 100 pages long before the start of the match.

I'm guessing that Lendl will suggest that Andy do some of these shots, as Berdych can be a bit of a pussy Whistle

The big problem with Berdy is that he can hit through Andy.  Think
Ouch! Please no.

If I remember right, the semi last year was an evening match wasn't it? I remember staying up late to watch Andy win the 3rd set before Rafa finished him off.

So is it normally one SF during the day and one the evening?

If so, I hope Andy gets the night match.

Typically Andy should be playing the first match on Saturday but since this is a better match-up, they'll probably put him as 2nd possibly in the late afternoon.

Hi All,

Just said on the other thread, so I'll say it quick. Pat Cash thinks Andy is ready to win his first major, and he thinks he is going to do it, due to the way he has managed all the stuff thrown at him at Flushing Meadows. I put it better on the quarter final thread, but that is the gist. Who am I to argue with Pat Cash. Nice man. wub

I know it is the obvious thing to say, but I think if Andy starts well against Berdych (I don't like Berdych, I really don't!) he will have the upper hand. I feel that if he can start well his confidence will grow and he will have the momentum.

The important thing he needs to do is manage himself. We have to be fair here, he has coped superbly with everything thrown at him this year at Flushing Meadows. Yes, I know, he threw a racquet last night, he muttered about the speed of the court for a while. He got annoyed with himself for the way he played for those almost two sets. Now ask yourself what might have happened a year, maybe two years ago. He would have probably got completely frustrated, down on himself, and he would have used all his reserves screaming at himself in the direction of his team. He didn't do that last night. Instead, when push really came to shove at 5-1 down in the second, Andy answered the bell and didn't look back. Yes, Cilic imploded, but that was largely because Andy was putting him under more pressure from 4-1 in the second. Once Andy was at 5-2 it was basically match over. yay

I suppose things that have gone before don't really play a part in majors, but Andy showed in Dubai that he can deal with Berdy. Straight sets that one, and on hard, and this year. Then Andy beat Djoko in the semi's. I love that!

Berdy can be temperamental of course. He can hit through Andy when given the chance to do so. So, don't give him the chance Andy love. Take it to him right from the off. Bring the good first serves, the intelligence, the great movement. Push him around a bit. Tell him who is boss from the start and make sure he gets it.

My gut tells me that it will be Andy in four. I'd like straight sets more, but I think it will be four.
