here is ALL the quotes and interviews and that Very Happy

Asked about claycourt specialist Ferrer, Murray shakes his head and laughs: "He's a clay court specialist? No he's not

Murray: "I honestly don't care which court I play on. Makes no difference. Obviously everyone wants to play on Centre because of the roof.
I just went back, changed, had a little chat with Ivan, listened to some music (Ed Sheeran) warmed up again."

But I don't 'deserve' to play on Center, I'm just as happy playing on No.1 Court."

Too humble  Smile.  yay  yes  I think Mr fed could learn a thing or 2 from Andy.  Don't you think?!

Ed Sheeran on twitter :  andy murray is a top lad  Very Happy

Good point.  Andy has exceeded some people's expectations so far.

Whose expectations has he exceeded? The highest ranked player he's played so far is Cilic who is about 18. So far Andy has been the strong bookies favourite to win each of his matches. And he will be strong favourite to be Ferrer and whoever he plays in the semi-final.

When I went out on Saturday, I needed change for the car park. The only shop open was Corals, so I put a fiver on Andy at 4-1. Not very exciting odds, but £20 would buy some decent champagne, though, eh?

It struck me there were some people who, by implication or otherwise, didn't think he'd get even get past Karlovic.  I never look at what the bookies predict - like the weather forecasters they do sometimes get it wrong.

Managed to miss this match, due to an appointment with the beach, needless to say, I am not in Britain.  I gather Andy was in good form to close out the match, and I am quietly impressed with the momentum he seems to be gaining on his 1st and 2nd serves.  With the game against Daveed coming up, he will need to keep relying on his serve, to put the Bunny on his back foot, and hopefully get him twisting and turning all over the court. 

If that fails then I suggest he grabs him by his long ears, then bludgeons him with top spin  hammer, before slicing him to pieces!  Guy with axe

If the British public can't handle the sight of a bloodied Andy with the Duracell's fluffy tail stuck in his teeth, then they had better just look away!  Eh? stretcher

Well he has played higher ranked players than Fed or Nole who have both had a stroll in the park.

Anyone who's watching tennis for a while should know that Andy's handed a very tough draw, becasue all these players have the game to upset Andy on a bad day and Andy has a lot of them. And not only Andy, give the same draw to Federer or Nole, it still is a tough draw for each one of them. Davydendko, Karlovic, Baghdatis, Cilic, Ferrer and Tsonga are a very tough crowd. Even a complete idiot should know this.

I am getting really allergic to Ferrer. I can't tell if Del Potro was that bad or Ferrer was just that good. Or maybe it was both. I really think this will be the 2nd toughest thus far. Ferrer just don't go away. You have to beat him and that's hard because he has the energy to go on forever and he will make sure he returns every ball. Andy should really be aggressive and blow Ferrer off the court but I don't think that will happen. Andy will probably a bit more careful than that. The only good thing, Andy is the better player and this surface suits his game better than Ferrer. Plus, he has plenty experience playing him.  Would be nice if Andy's on from the get go.

Tell that to this guy.. <_<

Davydenko - finished.
Karlovic- Despite big serve very very average record on grass.
Baghdatis - Past his best and never keeps it going over 5 sets.
Cilic - Absolutely spent after playing 2nd longest match at Wimbledon ever.

Could have been a lot harder.

Quote
Gotta agree with Rotherham White mate. He may have gotten big names but not current big players.
He got:
Davydenko #47, Karlovic #59, Baghdatis #42 and Cilic #18 who are all big names. He could have gotten
Giraldo #45, Soeda #58, Haase #41 and Lopez #17 who are higher ranked without the name and everyone wold be saying how easy he has had it!

I do like Cilic though but it was great time to play him after his megamatch. There's also no easy games in grand slams and you can only beat what's in front. But he is the favourite right up to the final now!

I've argued my point, not even bothered replying again because nothing's going to change their opinion.

Just ask these guys if they saw Rosol coming. We'll make arguments later.
