Wonder when this one will be on?

Obviously UK viewers would like it second up but im guessing everywhere else would want it on first. I don't know why, but I feel as though it would be to Andy's advantage if he was through first with Djorker and the Flying Fairy still to play.  Think

We all know Andy has not had one easy round to the semis, but how about Tsonga's run to the semis but how easy was it for him?

Twill surely be 2nd and so follow the order used for the whole tournament so far.  So, 4pm or 5pm start maybe

Both Andy and Tsonga have dropped 3 sets so far. I was a bit worried Andy may be tired after yesterdays marathon but Tsonga had a tough match as well so it shouldn't be an issue.

2-0 on grass to Murray, looks good on paper.

Tsonga is full of flair, and on his day, is hard to contain, but I think Murray clearly knows how to smother him and extract enough errors to win. Keep it away from his forehand!

Andy in 4.

yes That's what I think too, should be a great match to watch though. Was more nervous about the prospect of Ferrer I think Smile

I said if he beat Ferrrrrrrrrerrrrrr, he would get to the final and I still believe this.

I have managed to lower my blood pressure this year by realising 1- it is quite likely Andy will lose the first set; do not panic. 2- if he wins the second set- I am more confident he will win the match. If he loses the 2nd set- I start to worry. It's calmed things down for me no end this time round!

It would be wrong to dismiss Tsonga, but I think Andy will beat him, hopefully in 3 if he is focussed, and more likely in 4. It's a shame as I really enjoy watching Tsonga play, but not tomorrow :-)

 Question Nothing to do with Tsonga, something I've been wondering about for some time. Who's the old dude in the black cowboy hat I often see in the aisle seat in the players box at various matches (not always involving Andy)  I'm guessing he's someone pretty important, and pretty sure hes known to someone on MW!!

Tsonga is up there for me as Mr Personality.  He is also very gratious when talking about other players.  I hope he wins a grand slam some day but please not tomorrow's semi against Murray.  I am sooo delighted and I am counting the minutes until the match. All the anxiety of the past ten years will have been worth it.  I hoped he would have played first.  I still feel he hits a brick wall when he sees Federer's name.  He knows he has beaten him before but I would prefer Djok it would be more of an even playing field as Wimbledon has a very biased elite for Federer and I feel often not always on Murray's side!!!! I am not Scottish by the way.  Common Andy fingers crossed and still praying

Andy has had the harder matches to reach the semis than Tsonga, so I'm feeling confident in Andy coming through in 4.

Who are the naughty 2 who put Tsonga to win.   shocking
