I'm the one who should be blushing! I've watched the last game over and over but so far have only looked at highlights of that set, and indeed the whole match. This is about to rectified, especially as I chickened out of watching the 1st set until it was 5-5, although I might skip sets 3 and 4 - don't want to be reminded of the horrible sick feeling I had in my stomach then.
Lol. I sat and watched the entire highlights last night. Up until then I'd rewatched the fifth set and the last game.
I still think I did well to watch the match on the night. I was just completely convinced it was Andy's time, even when he lost the two sets lead. I just had this weird feeling he wouldn't let it go. I'm glad I was right lol.
Aileen, if you haven't seen it, check out the tie-break in the first set. If that doesn't go down as the best ever tie-break in a major final I will eat my hat! Even if you have seen it it's worth seeing again lol.
The thing that strikes me now is the way Andy was pushing Djokovic around early on. I know Andy has often said that you need to take Djokovic's legs away, but he did it brilliantly in those first couple of sets, which helped later. I'm also struck by how calm Andy seemed in the fifth set, especially in serving it out. I think it was amazing to see him during Djokovic's medical time out, just calmly hitting the ball against the back boards there. I swear he was the calmest person in the place! Speaking for myself, I was bawling from 5-2 in the fifth and didn't stop until he'd lifted the trophy!
