Yeah, yeah, I know. I just found the whole match and Andy's performance... bizarre, and far from a classic. Bit puzzled at the reaction right now. Be honest, at the end of the 4th set, could you honestly sit there and say 'this is one of the truly epic, all-time-great 5-set slam matches'?
I think in terms of drama, aggressive tennis and unreal retrieving, today's match is considered as one of the best slam matches I've seen. Wimbledon '08 remains the best match ever but that was not without drama, choking at certain points from both Federer and Nadal but it the quality of tennis from both legends is unmatched to this day.
Back on Andy, you're sitting there as an armchair critic saying that winning slams should be easy? You should go and pick up a racquet enter the pro tour and see if you're immune from choking when games and championships is on the line.
I'm also a fan of basketball and Michael Jordan, who many regard as the greatest player ever lost so many playoff matches in his early career. He didn't win his first NBA Championship until he was 27. It didn't make him less of a great just because he didn't win until later in his career. Until the day Andy calls time on his career, he has every chance of turning things around and rewrite history.
