A link like that would not cause hardware components to fail. If it did, they were going to fail imminently anyway.

Well done, Andy in this one and of course the fabulous win against Federer!

Folks, I lost connection after my last post on Jan 19th. Computer blacked out. I think I was on a link to the game and there were pop-ups, so I'm going to be very leary of the links from now on.  Too bad as no previous problems like that. It was like a power surge but nothing else was going on. Had to get a couple of things replaced in my computer. I had not logged off and it may show I was on the site all the time but I wasn't. I usually log off but when I came on just a little while ago it showed I was already logged on.

You judge a horse's ability to perform by the state of it's feet.... the adage being no hoof no horse. I wonder if we can apply the state of Andy's feet ...blisters...  to no feet, no win!!

I have been wondering if the same old saying could apply to the AO as Wimbledon ' the one that wins Queens does not win Wimbledon in the same year'.  Andy has won Brisban 2 years running but has just missed out on the AO 2 years running'  This is written with my tongue in my cheek!!!
According to an article in the Tennis Space earlier, only two players in the open era have won the AO after winning one of the warm up tournaments - Korda in 98, Fed in 06. Only three more have made it to a final - make that four now!

  There's another old saying -  past performance is no guarantee of the future, but I've never fully accepted  that other than a warning not to count chickens!

He has in mine, but very rarely, and it's always been off-court and he's friendly and full of fun.

Aww, I wish he comes in mine too
I bet it will be interesting Wink

I felt remarkably OK afterwards, but it took me at least two days to recover from the USO.  Maybe you were dreaming about Andy winning a different Slam ...?

I was all right emotionally, funnily enough, because Andy, although he seemed disappointed, obviously, wasn't distraught. That's what makes me think he'll bounce back well, because now he knows he can win at that top level, losing isn't the end of the world.

As for me, I think it was just a bit of come down from all the excitement. I've just realised, for example, how dull the TV in the evenings is when there is no tennis on lol.

You could have a point about the dream, although it seemed like the AO lol. He was lifting the trophy and everything. It was weird! Fingers crossed I'll dream he wins Wimbledon and it will turn out to be true.

That's what I thought too. I can't speak for either man, but I was shattered when it was over. To be honest I've been quite useless since the AO finished. Mind you, a very weird dream I had, in which Andy won, didn't help!

I was sooooooooooooo restless before the semis and finals and now, just wish that he was fitter in the finals...could have been a different result then Smile
And surprisingly, Andy has never featured in my dreams... Think

It lasted about 3hrs 45mins - quite long enough in the circumstances!

I thought it was really obvious Djokovic was playing possum during the first set. With all due respect, I wanted to reach through the TV and strangle him, it was annoying.

The comms on the BBC seemed to think it would be a long match, I think everyone did, although I don't think it was particularly short.

  I agree, one of the comms made the comment that he thought Djokovic was "playing possum" a little in the early stages until he was fairly sure it wouldn't go the distance then he was able to move up a gear. Thought that was an interesting observation.

So that means he might arrive this weekend, maybe? Whistle  yay
I wouldn't think so Linda because I don't imagine he'd have got back to the UK before today -but then I don't know how long you're going to be in Miami for, so maybe you might be able to get those binoculars out after all. Very Happy
