Good luck Andy!! Stay focused and please do not overlook Verdasco just cause you've beaten him many times.  Let your racquet do the talking and may the force be with you!!

Im jumping the gun a bit but Im really looking forward to Andy dismantling JJ in the semis. This guy is the most annoying on tour, celebrating every point with a clenched fist and an intensity as though he's won the bloody tournament. If some of you guys get annoyed by Federer or Berdych you ain't seen nothing like this guy. He'll drive you up the wall whenever he wins a point.

Agreed BN ! I've got to say if I was playing against somebody like that, all the nonsense would just make me more determined to stuff him.

Which is exactly the attitude Andy will have, I'm certain. Any of the top players surely would.

First things first of course, Verdasco is in the way, but I'm a lot less scared of JJ than I was. Andy nearly got it done in Paris. He will be keen to put the record straight. I'm sure of it.

I never knew it was illegal to want to win.

He doesn't drive me up the wall, and I'm sure there's plenty of people on here that do not mind JJ at all.

I seriously don't get why people moan about Tennis players behaviour though. They are there to play Tennis, and to win, not to act like good boys in a grammar school.

JJ is a refreshing talent. Much better than boring drones like Nishikori and Gascoke.

Nishikori is awesome, JJ and raonic are terribly boring servebots.

For the last time JJ is NOT a servebot.

Watch JJ vs Tsonga at Rome and you will see he is far from a servebot.

Nishikori is turning into a pusher who uses MTO's to throw his opponents off whenever he is losing.

Out of all the young guys Nishikori is closest to Andy/Djokovic's style and talents.

Goffin too is not far from it style wise.

Gosh looking at this list Federer only has a career record of 27% service games won, 44th on the all-time list *cough* not the GOAT *cough* 

Nadal however is in 2nd with 33% return games won, and also 12th on the list with 85% of service games won. Clearly the real GOAT.

Federer has only recently become a consistent server.

Carrying on from the stats I did before, I have looked at the top rankings for the overall career percentage of games won on grass. Here are the results I calculated:

Rank Player Games Won Games Played Percentage Games Won

1 Roger Federer 2297 3902 58.87%
2 Pete Sampras 1851 3208 57.70%
3 Andy Murray 1211 2107 57.48%
4 John McEnroe 1098 1935 56.74%
5 Stefan Edberg 756 1333 56.71%
6 Andre Agassi 1284 2268 56.61%
7 Novak Djokovic 1042 1848 56.39%
8 Lleyton Hewitt 2011 3567 56.38%
9 Rafael Nadal 1090 1935 56.33%
10 Richard Gasquet 859 1540 55.78%
11 Michael Stich 966 1734 55.71%
12 Boris Becker 1071 1924 55.67%
13 Patrick Rafter 1395 2519 55.38%
14 Mario Ancic 829 1503 55.16%
15 Andy Roddick 1677 3044 55.09%
16 Richard Krajicek 1416 2579 54.91%
17 Henri Leconte 421 768 54.82%
18 David Ferrer 805 1471 54.72%
19 Petr Korda 653 1195 54.64%
20 Juan Martin Del Potro 507 928 54.63%
21 Sebastien Grosjean 1092 2001 54.57%
22 Tim Henman 1884 3470 54.29%
23 Todd Martin 1385 2560 54.10%
24 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 761 1407 54.09%
25 Tomas Berdych 915 1693 54.05%

Says quite a lot for the strength of remaining wimbledon line-up in the other half I think, rather surprised to see Ferrer at 18th.
