Oh, that's what Andy was saying in the interview with Annabel, that the fast court suited him and if you got a particularly good serve in, then you'd get the cheap points. Very Happy

True but it suits Rogers serve dependent game even more.
I will be interested to see if Andy will remain very aggressive against Roger, or revert back to his couterpunching tactics as they work so well.
I'm sure he'll gauge it all perfectly on the day.

"Andy played a great match," said Djokovic. "He was the better player today. He was serving really well. I made a lot of unforced errors when it was important. It's been a great tournament here in Dubai. Look forward to Indian Wells, Miami, which are the next tournaments, next challenges. I think I have more than enough time to get ready for it."

I like a Murray vs Fedex match.  Andy usually puts Fedex's nose out of joint by just being on the other side of the net. Very Happy

That Shanghai final between the 2 of them was unbelievable.
I'm hoping for more of the same if they meet tomorrow.

Great win for Andy, he's obviously learnt from his 2012 Australian open semi final defeat. I'm gonna stick my head up and say i think Andy's opponent tomorrow will be Del Boy. Whoever it is in the final with Andy, they'll have to be on their game, if Andy plays with the confidence and tact he showed against Novak today they will definitely have a match on their hands. I believe the partnership with Lendl is already paying dividends.

You still have "tape"?
You need a PVR system with an enormous memory,
But sadly you can't archive with them.
At least in the UK.

What do you make of that choke when serving for it? Horrible mental deficiency in that key moment, thankfully he broke again to seal it anyway.

"It's obviously great any time you beat the world number one," said Murray. "I just tried to do some of the same things I did in Australia.

"I was very close there against one of the greatest players ever, and today I did what I needed to - even though it nearly got away from me at the end."

theycanbillme: what I meant was that both Fed and Delpo are now used to playing the court in night time conditions whereas Andy isn't so it could take him precious time to get used to the conditions and in 3 sets he may not have that time.
Not sure who I want to win today - just hope they go to 3 tie-breaks.  Whistle

What do I make of it?  I have even greater respect for Andy for taking that on the chin - putting it behind him and breaking Nole again to win - that's what I make of it!!!!
