That last game.... i still find it hard to watch without breaking into a sweat even knowing the outcome! I just watch it and there are so many 'what if' moments, he just hit lines where an inch would have given the game to Djokovic, he ran for dropshots where he could have slipped, Djoko could have hit that last ball back... so many things could have gone wrong but thankfully it all worked out in the end, god only knows what the result would have been if he had lost that game.
Realistically we could all be here now thinking back to that match and cringing at how he lost the Wimbledon final after having 3 match points, i doubt he or any of us here would have ever gotten over that.
Gnome, that's an interesting thought. I sometimes have the same thought but try to push it away from my mind. But sometimes I just can't help it...
What if Andy HAD lost that last game, to tie the set at 5-5? Cold he have recovered from that? Maybe not! Maybe Djoko would have found enough encouragement to start playing brilliantly, and Andy could have seen his game drop due to the pain of losing the three match points.
It's perfectly possible that Andy could have lost the match and the championship. How would he have recovered from that? How would we - his fans - have dealt witrh it?
Like I said, I try not to think about it.
