Nice picture of Andy in the H2H Bev, thanks for all you do.

Took my lead from David.  

Andy gave a lovely smile, I think in the 1st half of his match vs Marin, but I couldn't find a picture of that anywhere, so had to have a good look through Murray's Pictures thread.  I think it might have been John that posted that one.


I hope that Andy comes out where he left off yesterday vs Marin.

So back to 1 pm starts eh, so looking at about 1.30 ish onwards for me - just looked at the Rog vs Mik H2H - Rog usually wins in straights Rolling Eyes  Time to address that Mik!  He's got a bad back don't you know!

Thanks Jan.  I enjoy doing my H2H Very Happy

I'm going to bed after I've watched TBBT, so 9 o'clock, and I'll be up at 1.30, just in case.  I can always snooze until Andy starts.

Been to the supermarket, got chocolate sultanas, mini chocolate digestives, drinking chocolate, and mini chocolate bars, all to get me through Andy's match if needs be!  I'm hopeful of just a cuppa and a handful of choccie sultanas to do the job.  I have a bottle of sparking wine, on standby!  I've gone through a 200g bar of Dream this week already! fainting

This should be on tv but I'm going to sacrifice this for a decent livestream and being with you lot yes (though I've set the timer to record).  We do this together grouphug

All aboard! clapping

Thankyou to Nigel Graber for his witty account of Andy's match against Cilic. Some laughs and smiles  during this grim Wimbledon help tremendously. Methinks this match against Ferrer could go 5 sets.

Nice supply of chocolate there Bev! Smile I've got a bar of Milka and an emergency box of Thorntons choccies should they be necessary.

Nervous about today's match as Ferrer never gives up - he won't go down mentally and Andy will have to play above his level in order to beat him. Serving well will be key, and that's something he's done well this tournament. His first serve % has been good so far (67%-61%-63%-68%) so hopefully that will continue.

But Andy does have the far better grass record, and his variety should help him a lot in this matchup. Delpo offered no resistance yesterday, just inaccurate ball bashing most of the time and lumbering movement. David will find Andy a much tougher test - expect Andy to come through but it might be in 4 sets.

Hoping Andy does it nice and quickly, playing with the confidence and aggression that surely, he himself is beginning to believe in.
Hoping that wonderful serve is clicking.
Come on  yay yay yay yay

I agree with Aileen and would be supporting Ferrer if it were not for Andy. had to listen to Radio 5 Live for the last six days so looking forward to seeing Andy tomorrow.  What a load of drivel they discuss on 5 Live and it was supposed to be covering Andy on Court 1 with interruptions from the news,the weather,travel reports and Goran -but he was very amusing getting Cillic and Murray mixed up!  Too much Vino Collapso at lunch maybe.

I thought that too but then realised he was saying 'Marin' not 'Murray'!

I have a hospital appointment this afternoon and have to do some shopping.  Hope it is all over by the time I get home.  I am such a coward but will not watch his matches live.  The only time I watched this year was QF at RG and he lost.   C'MON ANDY YOU CAN DO IT WITH YOUR NEW ATTITUDE AND CONFIDENCE!!!

Working til 5 so hopefully Youzhny beats Federer in five sets and Andy's match is all due to start at 5.

Knowing my luck Federer will probably trounce him in straights and Andy will be on by 3.

Ferrer is cool as a cucumber and as hard as granite.
I think it could go to 5, they are both hardend warriors.The following is an extract from the Wimby site:

A winner in s’-Hertogenbosch prior to Wimbledon, Ferrer is now on a nine-match winning streak on grass, which is ominous news for Murray, who has lost his last two meetings to the Spaniard, including the quarter-finals of the French Open.

Ferrer acknowledges that “maybe my return is my best weapon in grass court, because in grass court I don't have a really power with my serve” but also note that the change of surface also creates a different challenge against Murray.

“It's going to be very difficult to beat Andy in all surfaces, but in grass court is more difficult,” he said. “He's a favourite player because he's better than me, and tomorrow I will try to do my best. I will have to play my best tennis to beat him.”

Andy will need to come out with both barrels blazing and not get behind. cmonandy





This must not happen, I don't see Roger winning against Djokovic. It might even be a straight sets win and if Andy has to go to the wire after the rain delays etc he will be disadvantaged. He can & should do it in 3 on the grass. Ferrer hasn't even been to the qrt's here before. If he serve's well and is aggressive he can do it, ferrer is the perfect player on which to apply your aggressive game.

Murray runs all day too. Never seen him so intense he's giving it everything, really surprised me. No way Ferrer can beat Murray in this mood

Wills & Kate are at Wimbles today. No humble bow from Fed I see? lol
Glad they'll be there to cheer on Andy.

Had a look at Andy's stats for this tourney.. 47 aces (ahead of Fed, Nole)
Fastest serve speed 134 mph (Nole/Fed not even on the board)
1st serve receiving points won 78 (behind Nole/Fed)
2nd serve points won - Top of leader board Smile
2nd serve return: Top of leaderboard Smile
