lol Did you use some dodgy wording? Very Happy

Haha, don't think so - just the name. It came up with some suggestions - shirtless, Cosmopolitan, and boyfriend, above the rest of the pics. Could have done an eye-catching H2H if the Tsonga/Verdasco match had happened!

I don't think we can take much from the head to head against Tommy. They haven't met since 2009. Andy won both of those meetings that year and has improved vastly since then.

I don't think it would do Andy any harm to have a bit of a test to be honest. It might show how well he is playing.

I reckon Andy in either straights or four. Either way, I see Andy winning through. I'd be surprised if he didn't, even in this crazy year.

Tommy is a great competitor - I loved watching him at RG when he won all those matches from 2 sets down. Obviously hope he doesn't do the same tomorrow though!

I don't know.   He's been playing well lately   Especially at the French Open.    I don't know maybe its just me.  I'm always anxious lol

Clay is Robredo's best surface; grass is not. I agree though that he's a great competitor but he's been playing a lot of tennis and should be relatively tired.

I think Andy needs to stay focused and play smart, this week has shown that anyone can come out and play great tennis no matter who they are.

So Andy, take care on the grass, have great serves and winning returns.  Good Luck and may the force be with you!!

Andy as usual isn't under-estimating his opponent - http://www1.skysports.com/tennis/news/12040/8795653/Wimbledon-Andy-Murray-wary-of-third-round-opponent-Tommy-Robredo

Robredo - "Obviously I don't like to play on grass. Sometimes in life you have to do things where you are not that comfortable. If I could change it, I would put clay on the court all the time. But here they want to play on grass."

Don't you just love these selfish clay-courters!


I'm not taking anything for granted here the way this crazy week's been going, but it won't do Andy any harm to have a good test right now - so long as he keeps his focus and his calm and wins!

Forecast for tomorrow - 60% chance of rain all day - so it looks like it could be another Andy match under the roof.

Update since then from Wimbledon - some showers are expected in the morning and evening but there could be a dry window for between 4-5 hours in the afternoon.

I have to admit to finding it quite encouraging that Robredo would prefer the court to be clay. That has to be a good sign for Andy.

I'm respectful of how well Robredo has been playing, and of course there have been the upsets, but I'm quietly confident.

Just more generally, I do think Andy looks different out there this year. I'm convinced winning the Olympics, and getting that first slam, has made all the difference in the world to him. He looks up for it, but at ease with himself as well.
