  Let's not be greedy. One or the other will do.   Very Happy I hope it doesn't happen.

Main problem with that is Ward would be hated a bit by many if he was to actually beat andy caus he has little chance of actually winning wimby and he would have taken away andys who can actually win it.

   Theres more chance of snow on centre court tomorrow than any of that speculation coming to pass!

One or the other won't do for me.     I want to see Andy.

I doubt he'd be hated if he beat Andy.  I'm confident it wouldn't happen, anyway, as Andy right now is far too experienced.  I'm sure the match up would be a bit weird for both players, though...

It's never going to happen anyway, but there's pretty much no chance of James beating Andy. Ward is roughly the #90 in waiting (give or take a few rankings). The only player outside the top 50 Andy has lost to since 2012 was Borna Coric (and I think we can agree he is a bit of a special case), and the lowest ranked player he's lost to in a Slam since 2008 was Wawrinka in 2010 at #27.

I'm frankly amazed there's even a discussion about it. It's nonsensical. If Ward was playing Federer or Djokovic we'd be just hoping he didn't disgrace himself. I don't see why Andy is any different, particularly on grass.

I didn't say Wardy had any chance - I just wanted to see it happen. Wardy is a solid 50-100 tour professional, while Murray is a legend. It would be 2, 3 and 2 at best. But obvs it won't happen now.

But you raise an important point - Andy is incredibly efficient at dispatching the lower lights. How many surprise results can we point to in the last few years, apart from his post-AO-final slumps of a few years ago?

'None' is the answer.

   Excellent point - but absolutely no grounds for complacency ever.
