Sky is at least showing highlights tomorrow evening at 7pm.  Personally I don't really like watching on my pc and as so busy at present haven't therefore watched any of it - which a shame as sounds like he's playing sublimely.  Did see a few clips from Bangkok on ATP uncovered on TV and some great shots there (though didn't like the short haircut!!) 

Jan I know what you mean by reactions to saying one is a fan of Andy's but don't you think we should come out loud and proud for him whenever we can?  Whistle
Yes of course we should - and I do when I'm really annoyed by some comment or other as those remarks come from people who are ignorant of any real knowledge concerning him. Sometimes I just can't be bothered to argue just make a comment re people who choose to make comments when they don't know the facts - something like that. Tv programmes (even the League of their own Andy was on) use the f word for all to hear, but they use his often unheard words against him - English is after all the most common of languages.

Sorry, another dull review. I just don't follow these 250 tourneys, although a win vs Rafa tomorrow would, I think, be significant.

naughty  You really aught to watch and then you may learn something (like it being a 500 event) Whistle Very Happy

Ruthie - I definately agree with you about being loud and proud about Andy - he is a sublime world class player - yes he has some faults (show me someone who doesn't) but at the end of the day he is a true sporting genius and icone.  When you see the behaviours of a certain national Rugby Team and a certain national football No 10. then I think we should be well grateful for our Andy!!!!   I think people's perception of him come a lot from the media and a lot from a certain type of tennis fan - the ones that watch Wimbledon for 2 weeks once a year.  I was sat in front of some people who may have fitted this category at the recent DC event at Braehead, the guy was waxing lyrical about Andy's faults and his shortcomings and then telling the crowd he was with that he really needed to chill about the whole "Come on Tim" thing as it just proved he would never be Tim.  I then started to chat very loudly to the group I was with reeling off all the titles Andy had won and about the great things that he does for the sport - I thought drowing him out was a far better way to deal his obnoxiousness thant confronting him!!!!   I also met some lovely people from south of the border who really appreciated Andy and felt the fact he was Scottish gave him that extra edge and they were full on supporters out there.  I just think he deserves an almightly amout of credit for his consistency to stay in the top four and battle with two of arguably the best players the world has ever seen and also someone who is going to be perhaps the best player in the world.  I think Andy this past two weeks seems like a man on a mission - long may it continue and long may we on here shout from the rooftops about the young man from Dunblane one of the finest sportsmen we have privilidge and honour of watching week in week out. Come on Andy......

MM, it really does not matter what we say or do to defend Andy and advise all opponents of his many successes or his quiet charity works, people will never change their attitudes. They feel he is uncouth and not a proper tennis person to be as high in the world stakes as he is. Frankly, deep down they are waiting for a new Tim Henman they can regale and forget about our one of a select few truly world-rated champions.

It would obviously be great if Murray won.  And Im totally behind him.  It is gonna be a tough match.  The semis at the USOpen this year was an example of a great match between Murray and Nadal.  The score said nothing about the rallys and effort put between both of the players.  I'm hoping for a great match with Murray ending victorious!  But we all know how difficult it will be for either player to win against each other.
Welcome HH,  wave. Nice posting!

Sad not to have any TV coverage to see how he is playing. Watching the points on live scores is just not the same. It would be nice to see the final. I am sure that over three sets that Andy can up his focus for a win. I hope so. Just has to believe and go for it!?
Hi there, to you too! You are right.

The British, with the exception of MW, are mostly too thick to recognise true class when they see it.  Rolling Eyes

I think the people who moan about Andy are not only ignorant about him but also tennis in general.   These are some of the comments I read on newspaper websites during the strike stories

- nobody forces him to play any tournament
- why doesn't he just stop after the US Open
- why doesn't he just play the slams
- why doesn't he just play tournaments in europe
- why doesn't he skip all the clay tournaments  doh

If you're going to comment on tennis then at least know what players can/cannot do. It infuriates me.

 We should be used to the fact that unless a British sports person is English their achievments will not be reported in the National press, TV, or Radio it will be in the regional news. I am dumfounded that Cameron is going to fly the Welsh flag at no: ten on Saturday for the rugby. Will it start another English riot? It is the English and Wales cricket board but it is hardly uttered. All English sports people are called English not British but the Scots and  Welsh are called British mostly when they are winners and disowned when they do not win. The media should start reporting as UK/Scot. UK/Welsh UK/English, UK/N.Ireland and stop pretending that we are Britain as that went out with the Great. Andy Murray is from Scotland in the UK it should be celebrated but hey the Media loves to think the UK is English, all we can do is grin and bear it. Tennis is not widely reported at all unless it it is in England aka Wimbledon. Weedman naughty

AFT, What! what! Cameron flying Welsh flag yuk Up until relly recently Wales had never had a Tory MP! Thatcher wreaked devastation on Welsh mining communities where the poverty is still tangible. I'm speechless.

I agree BBH. According to some papers and the rest of the media the only country that makes up the UK is England. I strongly agree about Thatcher she ruined Scotlands heavy industry. She dod'nt give a second thought to what devastation she caused. The result being the tories have one westminister seat in Scotland.
Sport is dealt with as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland as also rans. Only the English events are spoken about on the National news. That news lately has not shown the English Rugby team as paragons of virtue, their behaviour left a lot to be desired. It is the same with TV, Sky only showed the highlights of Andy's match in Japan long after he had won. I bet it was because tennis lovers emailed them to ask why.
