Ed Rensi, former USA CEO of McDonalds, said this yesterday,

I was at the National Restaurant Show yesterday and if you look at the robotic devices that are coming into the restaurant industry -- it’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging French fries -- it’s nonsense and it’s very destructive and it’s inflationary and it’s going to cause a job loss across this country like you’re not going to believe.

  Nobody goes to McDonalds to ogle the robots.

has anyone seen the article in the Times where Brussels is preparing to oust governments they don't approve of.
I can't find this anywhere but nothing Brussels says surprises me.

As Wilander says the next match basically involves Andy being a goalkeeper. The rallies will be short and the match should not be too strenuous unless it goes to 5 sets again.

Karlovic played appr. one hour longer than Andy with nearly all sets ending in a TB. No surprise. But this will be meaningless if the wrong Andy appears. He is unpredictable, which makes him so exciting to watch. Though I admit I could do with less drama in the following matches.

Well.  Speechless.  I missed the third and fourth sets.  Came out of a meeting to find them locked in a 5th set battle.  I listened to the rest but this is a match I MUST see somehow.  i hope Andy can get a good rest tomorrow and recovers well.  These long matches might take their toll in the long run but they're also the kind of tough battles you get through to ultimately win a tournament...

I'd forgotten that Karlovic too is 37.  He played a very long, gruelling five setter today against Jordan Thomson, so could be a little fatigued, although with a day to recover, maybe not.

From an "easy" draw this has become an arduous  battle the last 3 days.

I'm amazed that this became a 5 setter but  realise he's done well for himself recently.
Creds to him and Muzza..
Hope to be able to watch the match later. ...and read through the thread here.

Guys beyond the top 100 are still excellent tennis players who may cause upsets on a good day. MB had the biggest stage a French player can have, he was the clear underdog with nothing to lose and Andy somehow lost his way building up his opponent's confidence. I saw the last three sets and was shocked at Andy's display in the middle of the match. So it was too easy for MB to steal two sets.
