5 am my time yawn
I'm lucky then. This is perfect Saturday evening entertainment for me, approx 7pm.

Bev, you're so used to these ungodly hours, you should write a book,

Andy's FH is very good and is pretty consistent now with the top spin especially to pass opponent at the net.  

However, if looked at objectively then Fed's FH is the most deadly in calm condition as it is flat and it flies through the air taking time away from his opponent. Normally one or two of those deadly FHs is/are sufficient to finish off a point which is why Fed is able to play so well even at 31. He doesn't need to run as much so less wear and tear on the body.

Andy still needs to use his BHs to get his opponent out of position before using his FH to finish off a point. I am hoping that Andy can increase his FH power further to be even more useful in the future, especially on clay.

Yes he did but listening to the comm chat reminded me that Andy doesn't like playing on LA court and it was there he had that humdinger with Haase last year.  Got me feeling a bit  nervous I must admit.  Come on Andy you can play fantastically on any court   cmon yeah cmon yeah

Great bit that teejay. Andy's forehand is one of the best at the moment, if not the best when he is in the zone. Used to drive me to distraction to see the forehand shot clatter into the net, time after time!
Ferrer at French this year was the worst, just couldn't get it over the net at all. Definitely improved significantly in such a short space of time.

That was exactly the one i was thinking of. Throughout the match,I remember thinking, Andy was really trying to pull the trigger with that forehand. It wasn't quite coming off, but it has got better with each tournament, if he gets in the zone. The French was the turning point for me!!

Perfect conditions for the players today, 23 -  30oC, no strong wind or breeze. Andy in 3, but at worst he may have a close fought set, or two.

Havent seen Felicianos matches against Haase or Andjuar, but it went to a 5 setter R2.

Andy can tackle lefties.  Come on Andy! Take the pin-up boy out. Looks dont count here, only tennis!

Not long now. Set the recorder, just deciding if I am brave enough to watch live. Cowardice is my default setting. Good luck Mr M, we need Olympic Gold Murray today.

Just wanted to say thanks to everybody who posts on MW. It gives me many smiles and a few frowns. It's great to see Andy keep on improving. I loved seeing the last 2 matches of the Olympics: I loved the expression on Feds face a few games in when he realized he did not have a chance. I loved even more how often Feds is having to make excuses for the loss " I wasn't  at my best". Total BS. Bring it on Andy.
