Dilemma Time  Posted on     Since choosing a name is a very prnaoesl and emotional experience, which will effect someone's entire life, I don't really think Yahoo!

Yes I am having a bad day.  BUT WHO CARES CELTIC WON AGAINST BARCA.     Sorry Andy  but that win  means a whole lot more to me  than this  WTF  >> you have been bumped doon lol

See I have this procedure  If  Andy loses  that mean Celtic will win and vice versa.  and if they both lose.  well lets just say  one would not be happy.  lol

You an anti-Barca fan or something or a Celtic fan John??

In this way if Murray beats tsonga ,he will be sure about  his spot in semifinal. No? Tell me if I told the right thing.

It has been kindly worked out for us. Here:

Busy day, so just caught up on PVR.

Talk about edge-on-your-seat stuff!
I'm so sorry Andy lost. That 3rd set was incredible.

But I'm so proud of him for just Going For It!

I don't understand any of the RR permutations.. all I care about is Andy in the Final. And if he doesn't, then so be it because I know he is absolutely trying his best, and that's all he can do.

Hello to everyone. Here is 1.19 am and i am in bathtube reading you and following to think at Andy's match.
I am sure: tennis is a drug, Murray is the hottest (and dangerous) drug. I repeat to myself that he lost by the number one in the ranking, but it's not enough to acept how story has gone.
I think Andy played unbelieveble in the first set, with mind free of bad thoughts. He went for his shots and first serve and forehand were so warm.
In second set I saw him a bit tired. It brought him to play far from baseline a lot of times with Nole that became more sure about his shots.
The first part of third set remembered me last matches, but then he could came back and when hold serve for 5-4 I believe the dream could come true. But not... another break and then another couple of break-back points failed. This pushed me down. I usually watch the match standing up and fighting with him. Often - maybe you will not believe in me - it is like I feel when he is going for an ace, winner or double faults. Sometimes it is like I can influence his performance (I know ,it is crazy but exciting).
All this words to say that I know he can't always win but I can't acept this kind of defeats. Just a couple of points here and in Shanghai. But it suggests me one thing: I believe that Murray can still increase his level a lot. He played like other 3 fab four but in my opinion he still has to leatn how live some big points .It means that his maximum level is far .Will he get it? I hope because he deserves it and us too. :-)
But it hurts a lot when he loses becduse is like a particular nightmare (he is so near to gain the win but then something unlucky thing...) doesn't want go away.
Does someone of you have my feeling?


P.S. About go ling to semifinal: I red that if just two players have same number of winning matches, will go through who won head to  head. Only when three players have one victory they will count sets percentage.
In this way if Murray beats tsonga ,he will be sure about  his spot in semifinal. No? Tell me if I told the right thing.

Bit early for a prediction, but I'm going to make one anyway. I think Andy will beat Tsonga and qualify. It'll either be in three or straights. No one roll their eyes at me for stating the obvious lol. What I mean is, maybe Tsonga will push Andy and take a set, but sorry, as much as I love JW, I don't see him winning. If Andy comes out flowing and up for it, and with what is at stake he may well, I think he could surprise a few and do it in straights.

JW openly admits he doesn't like playing Andy (looking at H2H I can't say I blame him) and I think Andy will just have too much and be too fired up for JW.

I'd bet my life on this one. I don't even care about Tsonga being good indoors. I think Andy will do it.

First bit of good news for me today was Obama winning the US Presidential race, the bad news was Andy losing (but a terrific match), and the third bit of good news was Celtic's win against Barcelona (talk about David v. Goliath!).  All in all not a bad day as far as good news is concerned, 2 out of 3 will do nicely, a pity Andy didn't win but he is not out of it, everything to play for and I know he'll do it.

I had a new experience today - following the match on radio! It's the one day of the week we don't have public in and my colleague is also a dedicated Andy fan so we listened away. I'm not sure I got as much enjoyment as I would've watching it but it was nice to keep up with it all the same given how close it was - though I missed some of the twists and turns in the final set as I had to concentrate on some work I was doing.

Anyway thanks for the match report really well written and from what I heard (seems weird writing that!) very accurate. So close at the end, fingers crossed for Friday when I'll hopefully be able to watch.

I find listening to Andy matches on the radio painful - I had to listen to the US Open final on the radio.  I had to walk away at the tie break! lol

Hope Andy gets night match also - but that'll mean Tsonga has had 3 night matches, so something has to give.  Andy's match today should have been evening. I hate it when TV schedules interfere with sport scheduling.  We don't want to go the way of Football.
