I'd been thinking more of singeing her hair Iris  Whistle

Can I just say how delighted I am that I wasn't the only one who thought that. My conscience, which isn't really a problem when it comes to the vile Ms. Wade lately, is officially clear! Bless you Ruthie!

Just questioned it Aileen because it could be read as suggesting it isn't really an easy draw at all -and no doubt there are smugfed fans out there who would love so suggest just that.  Whistle

Re the 'easy' I was being sarcastic and having a dig at SmugFed simply because he is not the great player he was in his prime, even although he, and his fans, think otherwise!

 Not sure why you put 'easy' in inverted commas Aileen.  It is an easy draw especially when compared with Andy's and Nole's.  If he messes it up that's his fault not the draw's.  Same at Wimbledon where he also had an easy draw but nevertheless came a cropper against Benneteau.  But agree about the aura of invincibility.

Re Fed's 'easy' draw - I watched the Falla match and Falla certainly gave him something to think about (again).  Falla turned in a brilliant performance whilst Fed was playing some absolutely woeful tennis, particularly at the end of the 2nd set, a fact he's blaming on the pressure he feels when he's playing for his country at the Olympics because everyone's talking about it.  Shame, given that Andy has to put up with this kind of pressure every single year come Wimbledon. Rolling Eyes

Fed's aura of invincibility has been a myth for some time now - except to his deluded fans.

Hi Alis and all,

It's brilliant isn't it! I think I might like Darcis, providing of course he doesn't get too many big ideas about big wins over the rest of the tournament. Although, should they meet, I think Andy would have far too much for Darcis. Must remember though, long way to go yet.

I'm a bit worried about the state of Centre Court though. It looks really dodgy out there. Don't get me wrong, I don't recall Berdych ever moving that well on the grass, but today it looks slippy out there. I hope it's better for whenever Andy gets out on it, which I assume will be tomorrow.
Yes 2nd on centre tj

I'm not totally sure PT.  I think it is all pulled out of a hat with the seedings providing the basic structure of the draw.  Not sure how it's decided between the top 4 seeds in terms of who meets whom in SFs.  While I don't really believe it's rigged to help smugfed the number of easy draws he gets compared to Andy really does seem beyond the realms of statistical probability  shocking

that's the position i am now starting to take!!  Think

Hey Ruthie, its good to be back, i tend to agree with you its a much harder draw than Smugfed's so like you inferred if Andy makes the final, then he will be spent more than Smugfed!! just out of interest, how are the draws carried out for tennis tourneys? Is it really random out of a hat so to speak? My worry is that our Andy will continue to be disadvantaged by his draws when compared to the other top three guys when he competes in grand slams and Masters 1000 events?

Relishing watching Andy's Olympic campaign which starts today. With regard to his draw, is it tough? No tougher than the draw he had during Wimbledon '12. I firmly believe our Andy has gleaned some valuable lessons from his hugely successful Wimbledon run. So i expect in his match against Stanislas, he will come out with all guns blazing and once he gets ahead to bring the cosh down and keep it there. Good luck Andy, i know you can do it.  yay yay
Good to see you back pt.  No not a harder draw than Wimbledon but much harder than smugfed's so that if they did both get to finals again, the latter will probably have had a much easier week of it and that could make all the difference. Still birdshit is down a set so who knows that could be a big obstacle removed if Darcis does the job.

I was watching a sports quiz on ITV the other night where one of the panellists referred to Andy as 'Andy Misery' and all the other panellists seemed to think it was incredibly funny - sooo annoying!

"Alis". These people are like sheep! Like my mum says: people who are talked about and gossiped about have very interesting lives, so those who talk about them negatively are jealous and tend to base their opinions about that particular person on hearsay rather than making up their own minds - SHEEP!  cmon GB cmonandy
