Oh definitely, but it would just be so much more gutting to come so close. I think at the time it would be worse, but by the next day once the post-match disappointment has faded we'd be able to appreciate it.. much with the AO this year.
Anyway, long way to go yet. If he can get past Ferrer then there's (probably) Tsonga. Either of them could make the final if Murray's not on his A-game.
I agree it would be more gutting but ofcourse it would be also much more hopeful, particularly for the USO. Much more.
I'd really hate another 3 set whimper from Andy. It might just be unforgiveable. And would have further detrimental effects.
This is where Lendl earns his money I feel.
Andy was more aggressive than Cilic Today many more winners and serving great. I'm feeling good about a possible `eureka` moment from him should he make the final.
