Hi All,

I could not believe how well Andy served in the resumption of the match against Cilic. He looked in the mood as well, which I think is always a great sign.

I think I've said it before on another thread, so I apologise (I swear my brain is stuck on repeat half the time!) but what really impressed me, other than the serving from our lad, was at 5 all 30 all in that first set. It was all just a bit tight, but there was a sense that Andy could take control if he just remained in control of himself. I could have burst with pride (and would have made a hell of a mess in the living room) when Andy just said 'come on now'. It wasn't remarked upon by the commentators, and wasn't to get the crowd going. It was a calm collection of himself. To me it illustrated so much how Andy's mindset is changing, and for the better.

Did anyone hear the berk during the first set of the Baggy match the other night who shouted something like 'come on Marcos, do it for England' as Andy was about to serve? Nigel, if you hear such a thing again today then you have my permission to use the MW shotgun. I swear I heard a similar thing during the Gasquet match in 2008. Such wit. I hope the crowd around them told them to FO.

Hi PT wave  Great to have you back again and I found this and your earlier post very encouraging. Smile

Hi Aileen, its good to be back. Thanks for your kind words, sometimes swimming against the negativity can be tiring. Our Andy will do it, Ferrer will come with a mindset of never stop till the last ball is hit. Our Andy must do the same. No concentration lapses, no tantrums. Just pure focus, focus focus. But above all Our Andy has to be courageous and go for his shots - believe! yay cmon yeah I will be away from this afternoon for a couple of days, so i'll be missing the match, but i'll stay tuned to live scores on my phone via the Wimbledon App hug

He plays one match every Wimbledon on No. 1. It's standard. So I should be looking good with my CC tickets tomorrow. I fear I won't see Herr Kohlschreiber, though. It's looking like Fedex.  yuk

I'd spend some time in the beer tent during the opening match if I were you Whistle

Enjoy the other match though - get those tonsils lubricated! clapping

Andy's game seems to be improving along with his confidence round by round, all being well tomorrow and there is no reason why it should not be, i expect our Andy to make the semis and then who knows. Should he make the final, then i am happy that Lendl will be with him to take him over this last hurdle - playing the tennis we all know he can play, rather than the nervous tennis he has shown us in his previous Slam finals. whatever the outcome i am so proud of our Andy.  cmon yeah

Andy was serving like a beast whenever he was in trouble today. If he can replicate that tomorrow, I have high hopes he can make it to the SF.

Just like Andy dismantled Rafa in Tokyo after losing to him at USO. Here's hoping Andy will be fired up to make up for losing to David at RG.

The Horlicks night cap and a bedtime story. Fairytales are made of this.

Tip-top report Nigel!

Okay, I'll laugh. It's funny. Ha ha. But it's not. You will be seriously underestimating Ferrer if you think it's going to be a straight forward affair. For all I know, Andy can get nervous and it may take time for him to get back into the match. Just keep everything in mind. Just don't be over confident. That's all I ask.

I know many have used this quote from Emma Jean already but it's a good one and echoes my own thoughts.  Ferrer has been in the best form of his life this season and although Delpo was clearly below-par today, we know he can be a brick wall out there.

Andy needs to serve as well as he did today but of course he knows that.

If he decides to let himself be moody or whatever then he can forget about being a slam winner. He won't however, he's pretty much Mr dependable now in the latter half of the slams. That is until he reaches the finals unfortunately.

Totally agree with you "TCBM", however i think this trend is reversing itself at this years Wimbledon. Andy's game seems to be improving along with his confidence round by round, all being well tomorrow and there is no reason why it should not be, i expect our Andy to make the semis and then who knows. Should he make the final, then i am happy that Lendl will be with him to take him over this last hurdle - playing the tennis we all know he can play, rather than the nervous tennis he has shown us in his previous Slam finals. whatever the outcome i am so proud of our Andy.  cmon yeah

It shall be so easy for him he won't even need a racquet.
