I put my hand up and admit that I cried when he won the semis and I also cried with him in the finals.
I can't wait for him to have his next victory over the toblerone eating, cheshire cat grinning, up his own bumper Fed  yay

Oh I know, actually it's enough to put you right off Toblerone, and as for those chocolates Smugfed advertises, they are banned from my house.

A thought on that actually, is it just me or is it a bit weird that a tennis player should be advertising chocolate at all?

Hands up who cried when Andy won the semi. I did and I don't care who knows it.

Honestly, I think I lived every second of that 4th set with him. That bit of tightness in the third was excusable I think. He was on the brink of history.

Must also say that Mark Petchey's commentary at the end of the match will live with me forever. Great stuff.

I was just a bit cross with the shots of the statue of Fred Perry, I just didn't think it was appropriate at that time, although they can show the statue all they like when Andy does win Wimbledon, because I'm convinced he will one day. I just hope its against Fed, preferably in straight sets. I would love that!

Wish it was another People's Final like 2001. Can you imagine what the atmosphere would be like? Frown

Does it make me sound old that I remember that like it was yesterday?

Bad luck Murray,am so proud of you win or not.Fed best make the most of this moment because i dont think he will be no 1 for long,and this maybe his last grandslam win.Hope Andy is not to badly affected by this loss,his time will come of that i am sure,he must just keep having the faith in himself and his game.This is were Ivans work will really start as he has to make Andy keep believing in himself,otherwise this loss could be bad news.I cried when Andy lost he works so hard is so polite it made me sad to see him crying.Will never stop believing in Andy he will win grandslams of that i am sure.Next the olympics,then roll on the us open as i believe that is where Andy will win his fist grandslam,and i think if he can get over this loss quickly he will win this years us open.GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS AS ALWAYS ANDY.

Go Andy take him to five sets if you have to.The oap wont want a five setter,he might be as fit as you,but hes nowhere near as young,or as good looking.He might think hes the best thing since sliced bread,but at the end of a five setter with you he will have aged at least another Ten years.GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS AS ALWAYS

As the hour fast approaches here's what the Scottish Bard in Italy has to say !

Now's the day, an now's the hour
See the front o battle lour,
See approach proud Roger's power
Chains and slavery.

Lay the proud big bugger low,
Go on Andy, Go son go!
Liberty's in every blow !
Let us do or dee.

Andy dae yir best fur us.
Wipe that smile aff his puss.
Send him hame tae his toblerone.
We are with you, yir not alone.   cmon yeah

Now I'm off to chill the Prosecco and get the strawberries out.

Mac Dante in Italy  hug

WIMBLEDON FEVER

The time for the showdown is near
We’re approaching the final with fear –
Can the dour young Scot
Show us just what he’s got
Or will he be out on his ear?

His mother will sit and extend
Her matronly gaze to the end
The pressure is mounting
Just one day – and counting
Her honour he has to defend!

(Federer stands in the slips
With victory words on his lips
He’s mighty and bold
A champion of old
As his Wilson he manfully grips).

Poor Andy – he carries a weight!
The hopes of this united (?) State –
Upon his slim shoulders
He carries huge boulders
What will be the sum of his fate?

So hope as you watch the TV
With cucumber sandwich and tea –
With each perfect volley
That he stays on his trolley
And does it for you and for me!

Jan - the once in a lifetime legend reference was beating the self-proclaimed GOAT as underdog at Wimbledon in an Olympic Jubilee year - but i agree he''ll have many more chances of glory, just none as momentous as this in the annals of British sport!

I agree Lashurst........He's just a lad and he has the weight of a nation on his shoulders. He doesn't need any more responsibility just yet! If he does propose to Kim in the future.......it'll be in private! He's a private person....bless him!
Caz, I've not yet given up the hope that he might marry me lol

Having watched TV this morning it's hardly surprising our players haven't done well because the media put them under so much pressure as soon as we get a sniff of success.  Hopefully Andy has better things to do than watch TV and so avoid their comments.  Good luck today - you have the talent and the most amazing shots to take the title.

This a once-in-a-lifetime chance to become a sporting legend. In the immortal words of William "Braveheart" Wallace  before  battle " I hae brocht ye tae the ring - noo ye maun dance"  Go Andy, Go!!!  cmonandy
Nahhh! If Fed's anything to go by he has six good years left to do that - it's not so much a 'once-in-a-lifetime chance' as a first chance at Wimby but he'll always be Braveheart.
