Great writing, Nigel, as usual. Too bad this time it was on the ↓ side. I actually missed a lot of the game today but from what I saw Bellucci did play very well and, as you say, deserved the win.
Oh well, just you wait - he'll get there. Still recuperating.
Auburn - I didn't see the F words but don't forget he is often saying Focus!
Good input from a couple of newer (or usually quieter) MW members but that thread seems to be gone now.
Michelle, from previous thread - I'm with you, and even though it has been said that Andy's biggest fans are often the most critical, we who are not so nit-picking are just as big supporters. (e.g. of nit-picking imo would be criticizing a 6-0 game!)
Aileen - thanks for posting the link to From Sports. I can't always get that but it worked for me today.
Though I don't despair that Andy is out of the running for this one as I have lots of other things to do. I feel bad for his disappointment, but it's all in the game , so Next! Onwards & Upwards!
