I'm really enjoying those analyses too - learning a lot from them. And loving the way Andy keeps teasing Petch - about his bh yesterday!

Jan I think I've written off tonight's sleep as I suspect will be too wound up even if he plays on time!  But I don't mind provided he wins.
BB that is brave!  I've hovered over 4 and 5 and have finally gone for 5 as I think it could go to the wire and Andy did prove at RG he could go the distance once more , although of course the conditions were much easier there.

Excellent report Boogers ; you've even stirred Big nose into showing a brief glimpse of optimism Golly he's backing Andy to beat Tsonga but "go no further" That would mean Andy would cover his points from last year and that would be better than nothing.
   Who knows what a win v Tsonga might lead to

I'd love Andy to beat Jo and then go on to win the UO but I think it's too much to ask at the moment.    I'm loving the analysis of the matches done with Petch.   The thought process for each shot, conditions on the court, position of the opponent, how the opponent likes to play, all done in a split second needs total concentration, and I can understand how difficult it must be to get back to that after all that has happened to Andy over the last year.   He does tire sooner than he did in the past and maybe that's why.    Every game he wins will help so go get Jo, Andy.

So am I. I read something a while back about the reaction time a receiver has for his opponents serve, and it's such an incredible fraction of a second, well less than half, to weigh everything up and react appropriately that it really does make you wonder about how the brain actually functions in these situations.

Many people will vote yes for Scotland to get rid of the Tories. Margaret Thatcher ruined Scotland and people don't forget. Even the dreaded poll tax was tried out in Scotland and it was a disaster for the Tories. You are welcome to them in England but I am sure in time you will regret it. We will have government we voted for in Scotland with only one Tory MP to represent us from Scotland.It may be hard for us to begin with but at least the SNP will represent us in a fairer Scottish Parliament.
I think that it's the richest of ironies that Thatcher did more for the establishment of a Scottish Parliament than any other Westminster politician. She was more interested in beating the drum in the Falklands than ever she was in Scotland.

I think I agree with you ABF.  I like the way he seems to be tweaking his game and he's shown enough brilliance to give us heart for the future.  But, like you,  in my heart of hearts I can't see Andy winning USO this year but one step at a time and today's step is a big one given how JWT has himself come back from a huge slump in confidence (without the excuse of an operation).  Re Stan:  Andy did better than most players after their first slam win in his next one.  Stan on the other hand has had a mega consistency problem since AO.  I sometimes wonder whether deep in his heart he felt he won only because Rafa was injured and therefore it's not given him that extra boost of confidence while raising the expectations on him by many notches.

LOL.  That's what I've been saying about Dimitrov lately, but it could probably apply to both.  Both seem very eager to be 'loved', and it's a bit needy.  They aren't just any old boyband member, they are behaving like the one that wants to be the favourite, knowing full well he's not the talented one, or even the best looking one.  OK, so Dimitrov could also be the good looking one, but both are trying a bit too hard!  Rolling Eyes

Agreed Sparkle.   Most of the top players are too image conscious.    There is one player who, when asked what his style was, said "Don't try too hard".   Be your own man and don't follow the herd.    That to me is very attractive.     Of course the player in question also happens to be very handsome which helps.    wub

I agree Michelle.   I think JWT hasn't quite shaken off any fear of Andy.  I was also surprised what he said about Andy showing injuries as there has been so much less of the clutching since the op. 
We could do without Rob's unrelentingly negative interventions thank you very much not least just before such a pivotal match.
Andy himself told Petch he didn't mind whether day or night match but was hoping for Ashe.  So he got his wish thank goodness.  I just hope the weather doesn't play havoc with it.  But the scheduling does suggest the organisers see this as the match of the day so hopefully will do what they can to enable Andy to play today on Ashe, even if it means running into the night session which I think may have happened with the smug one's match?  Andy also said he'd be looking at vids of some of his previous matches again jwt - he needs to remind himself how he's beaten him so frequently.
Oh and all those naysayers who have been writing Andy off (and you know who you are) take note of how people were doing exactly the same about jwt this time last year and here is he back on top form. 
Like others I'm a fan but ......enough said.  So go Andy go  cmon yeah
 
Well said Ruthie. I will be watching whenever he gets on court and I do hope he's the winner, whether or not I can sleep afterwards is another matter. Good Luck Andy, bring out the best and send JW packing.
