Well done Andy. Great match. Looking forward to Wimbledon. Keep practicing the ace serves. The more the better especially against the top 3.

Was totally gutted that rain stopped play yesterday and denied me the chance to watch the match - work gets in the way totally !!!!   Just watched the highlights on the red button brilliant match.  Nothing could top what Muzz did to the A-Rod but equally impressive today was that he found a way to dig in and win - that's what GS champs have to do.  Tsonga - how well did he play I don't think I have ever seen him play as well as that.  Trying not to get carried away with the hype but I would just about give anything to see Mr Magic land his first GS at Wimbledon and totally silence all the doubters.  C'mon Andy......    Great tweet from Jamie earlier on congratulating his "little bro" on the win - great stuff.

Well done Andy!  It was a grind, especially when you're playing someone who's hitting all the winners and the errors, but what can I say other than "Keep on keeping it REAL!"

Good match and a good tough win, although I couldn't see it happening near the end of the second set!

Fantastic atmosphere too, the majority of the crowd behind Andy. Some poor buggers had been queueing since 2am! Thankfully, I could just wander in at 12:15! lol

Whatever happens now, I can say that I've been there to see Andy win a title! cmon yeah

I almost gave up on him mid way through the second set and nearly turned off but managed to keep the faiith and sat on the edge of my armchair yelling at the top of my voice (neighbours think I'm balmy) and it paid off because he can hear me of course from Essex to Queens. Envy you seeing it in person bet is was a great atmosphere.

Good chance for Andy to win Wimbledon this year....he's in form....Nadal fatigued, Federer possibly injured and the end of Djokovic's run could affect him!

A satisfying week, and it's nice to see Murray hit form in time for Wimbledon. It's also nice to see him looking so happy on court.

Great report Alistair. I relived every moment when I read it!
I second that.  Excellent - really puts the newspaper hacks to shame!

How Tsonga wasn't booked for all of those outrageous dives, I have no idea? 
Well Andy did say afterwards that at times he wondered which sport he was playing in!

Thanks to everyone for the messages today! Been a fun week, 6 days of training now before the big one! 14 minutes ago via Twitter


Isnt that nice of him?  hug

Good laddie
And thank you, Andy, for giving us all such a good win against a very tricky opponent and lifting the title for the 2nd time. yay

I wish he'd he take 2 or 3 days break - but he won't!  He's played a lot of tennis recently and in the 3rd set he was, on occasion, hopping a little round some of his shots like he was trying to protect his ankle, which he did admit afterwards was still giving him some trouble, although adding that it was very much better.

Seems Andy had an interrupted night and some unwanted stress on Sunday.  What a picture this conjures up! Very Happy

From his BBC Blog after the match -

When I was standing in my boxer shorts, tennis racquet in hand, at 2.30am preparing to tackle a burglar, any thoughts of Queen's or Wimbledon were a million miles away.

I woke up in a panic when the alarm went off in the early hours of Monday morning, and a quick check told me that the disturbance had come in the room furthest away from my bedroom.

The adrenaline was pumping so I reached for my racquet - what else? - and headed off to investigate. With just me and my girlfriend in the house, I thought I needed to be all macho and show them just who they were dealing with.

Fortunately, it turned out to be a fault with the alarm - and I've got to say I was very relieved to find there was no-one there! That definitely wasn't the way I wanted to be using my racquet on finals day at Queen's.

Of course I was wide awake now and couldn't get back to sleep, so I ended up watching the end of the Miami Heat against Dallas Mavericks basketball game until 3.30am. Again, not the preparation I'd planned, but I guess it worked out OK in the end.

Unavoidably had to miss the match!  Got in just in time for the presentation of the  trophy
Thanks for the thrilling report Ally, almost like being there, but what a one to miss!

So happy for you Andy, and for us!! Whatever you’re doing keep it up, rest all you can, along with doing what you need to do to keep fit.    Cheers, all!   cheers
