Courage doesn't always roar - but wins Wimbledon

Hi All,

Great article TMH.

I do think Andy played well in the circumstances. Given what has happened to some of the others he has done very well to pick up where he left off. I guess the reason he decided to play is down to trying to keep the momentum going, and he did well on that score.

The first serve percentage was low, but it was good to see it firing when it needed to. That seems significant to me. I really do think Andy has faith in it as a weapon now. Nice to see the second serve getting the job done too. Can you believe the transformation with that for Andy? I really do think the second serve and his vastly improved forehand are key for him.

I was glad he didn't muck about with Cipolla. The man was getting tricky in that second set, but Andy responded well, getting rid of him pretty quickly. It must have been a bit disheartening for Cipolla to be honest, that he couldn't get rid of a tired opponent, but so good to see Andy holding firm, refusing to get passive.

I really do think Andy is playing in his own euphoric bubble at the moment. He needs to be careful, he won't want his focus to drop, but I don't think he (or Lendl) will let that happen. He also won't want to go mad and risk injury, which Mark Petchey sounded concerned about, but I do think it's so good to see him looking so happy, so pleased with himself, for want of a better way to put it. He's had some painful losses to endure, I think he deserves every second of joy this success gives him - and all the cake he wants lol.

I loved it every time he was called Olympic Champion. It sent shivers down my spine!

Re the chocolate cake:  perhaps he wolfed down such a big slice because his fitness people wouldn't normally let him but they couldn't stop him while on court!
Btw have checked both Guardian and Independent websites and neither has a report of the match.  Have they forgotten there's a Master 1000 going on with an olympics gold medallist playing in it?  confused

Nothing in the Mail either Ruthie.

His win against Cipolla was reported very positively on Sky News this lunchtime. Judy was interviewed, it was so nice to hear how proud she was.
She said that tourists are flocking to Dunblane by car and train to take photograhs of the golden post box..  It's so popular.

that's lovely about the postbox.  How nice for Dunblane to be in the news for such a joyous reason.

It was reported that Andy's postbox had been vandalised but seemingly fans have been picking off pieces of the gold paint to keep as momentos which is a bit daft but, I suppose, understandable.  Thankfully, it has been repainted.
