Way to go muzzard!
Into the semis, hope he can win yhe next two matches and win it all!
No extra love for his future step-daddy at the net.
Can someone fill.me in on the "injury" I stepped away for a bit during that part
From the BBC report "At 1-1 in the third set the 24-year-old Scot appeared to jar his hip as he changed direction".  According to Murray himself he said that on grass sometimes with this sort of move your feet can bit tangled up.  Also it appeared to be his groin and not his hip that he tweaked since that was the area he immediately clutched.  Let's hope a day's rest plus physio will have him up and running against Nadal.


I am sensing a change in Murray re his mental attitude.  Perhaps the help he's been getting from boxer David Haye really is beginning to have an effect.  He's begun to show greater calmness on court and there's a maturity and intensity about him now which has hitherto been absent.

Yes Aileen.......I too sense a change! Whenever he starts to get a bit 'rattled', he's getting himself under control quicker and moving on, instead of letting it affect his game! Thanks to whoever.....Haye? Cahill?.....probably both, the penny seems to have finally dropped!

Fingers crossed that it is permanent and that he can build on it thereby realising his full potential.  My concern is that it may have something (hopefully not everything) to do with geographical location.

I too believe that the conversations Andy is having with Haye and the continual presence of Cahill is bringing Andy ever closer to his dreams.

Incidentally, I have noticed that Cahill seems to be an ever present in Andy's supporters box. I thought that he was on duty with ESPN commentary. What has happened?

Andy Murray is through to his third successive Wimbledon semi-final after beating Feliciano Lopez with ease, 6-3 6-4 6-4. The Scot will meet Rafael Nadal in a mouthwatering rematch of last years semi-final.

Lopez’s game revolves around his serve, a fearsome shot made all the trickier by a left handed delivery. As strong as his serve may be, the rest of Lopez’s game leaves a lot to be desired; some good volleying technique is married with a workmanlike forehand and a decidedly unreliable backhand. The ultimate combination is solid, if unspectacular.

Murray routinely demolishes solid but unspectacular players and his 4-0 winning head to head against Lopez will not have filled his opponent with much pre-match confidence.

Lopez was under the cosh from the outset, obviously struggling with Murray’s baseline variety and superior return of serve. After saving a break point in the sixth game with a remarkable second serve ace, Lopez inexplicably netted a mid court forehand to hand the advantage to Murray.

The Scot took this gift and didn’t look back, cantering to victory in two hours.

Murray was imperious on serve throughout the match and only faced break points in his penultimate service game. Lopez managed to claw his way to 0-30 on several occasions, but the Scot inevitably fired down an un-returnable serve to evade the danger.

There was one moment of concern as Murray appeared to tweak his groin. This resulted in some characteristic gurning and grimacing, but no apparent long term damage.

This was a satisfying and mature performance from Murray. The Scot played well within himself against a lesser player who never looked like causing an upset. There were no real dips in concentration and the few moments of danger were swiftly evaded.

Next up is Rafael Nadal, who beat Murray at the same stage last year. The Scot will be looking to exact some delayed revenge and, on the form he’s shown so far, he may well get the chance.


Nice report Phil - have we had an update from the man that was there at all? search

Has he?  I know that Sven G has been in there.

I too believe that the conversations Andy is having with Haye and the continual presence of Cahill is bringing Andy ever closer to his dreams.


I think that one of the 1st things that Haye pointed out was that Andy has beaten every single player ranked above him and that he needs to remember that when he plays against them.

Any news on the injury front - keeping everything crossed that it is minimal and does not hamper his bid tommorow - come on Andy we believe....

At match point did I hear some absolute tosser say "come on you lanky jock"?

Then I suppose it could have been..."anyone but Andy".  But why do that? He had just served two aces where Lopez barely even tried to move for the ball, yet people still need to speak out when everyone else is quiet....I just don't get it. 



Didn't realise Phil was at Wimbledon yesterday lol

I watch ESPN each morning and Darren is there all the time, but I believe when the matches begin, the commentators are different people which would allow Darren to be in Andy's box.

Speaking of Andy's demeanor on the court, it has changed considerably.  He is calm and more focused then before and that just has to help his game.

I loved his final three aces yesterday as he closed out the match.....so fitting!!
