If the match is on Ashe it gives Murray a chance for sure with the slower courts but then again Raonic has beaten Murray in clay so we will see how it goes!

I've banned his IP, hopefully that'll give us a break for a bit.

This one does sound very much like AK.

Well done Mark, he had already become irritating.

I've not watched the match but will catch the rerun today. From the sounds of it, it was an absolute grind in the heat but the main thing is that Andy pulled through.

How many times has the likes of Rafa, Fed and Djokovic pulled through when it looked like they were going to be beaten in slams? Every top player will most likely have to play 1 tricky match when they're often taken to the brink of elimination and they get through and then go on to win the tournament.
I Agree, all the top 3 have struggled at one time or another and gone on to win, and that's what our Andys going to do.

F-Lo played exceedingly well yesterday (18 aces and 68 winners!!!) so no wonder Andy had a tough match - plus then the heat as well. It's just great he came through.

Thanks from me as well. Given the number of Fed sites, it actually comes over as quite sad that they feel the need to come on here and try to bait people.

I entirely agree with the red hair bit.  I am a red head with fair skin and the heat + humidity absolutely kills me.  When I was a child I lived in Singapore (very high humidity) and was apparently very miserable but when we lived in Egypt I was fine as it is a dry heat.  It could be nature as we tend to burn very easily. 
I think it must be the humidity, or maybe the combination of both, that gets to Andy, because he's usually OK with the heat in Oz, which is a dry heat.

I do remember Andy having a mild heat injury at Cincy one year and then could not cope with the heat at USO either.  It is not always because you not drink enough.
Yes, that was in the Cincy QF against Fish, but Andy had been playing earlier matches in the heat (in Toronto as well, as I recall) and a request for an evening match was refused because Fish was playing doubles later.  Unfortunately I don't think Andy took the break he should have done afterwards and so was affected again at the USO.  Heat exhaustion can be serious and I think Andy under-estimated that fact.

I've now read the BBC report and thought it was very grudging.  Yes at one level Andy was unconvincing in that it was more of a struggle than it needed to be.  But they give him insufficient credit for hanging on in there and finding inspiration at key moments in the match against a for the large part inspired opponent. 
The BBC report really made me angry.  What short memories their reporters must have!  They seem to have completely forgotten about Andy's gold medal, and the silver too (oh they were all over him like a rash then) and the fact that in playing and winning for his country he was not only tiring himself out by foregoing a decent break but also that he missed his usual acclimatisation period in Miami.

Loved it, Mark. I see you've banned William Holden as well. Maybe you can take a look at Ghostbuster as all. He has never said one positive word about Andy and is always here whenever Andy is in trouble. He was here in his last match against Lopez as well and was waiting for an upset and to say how pathetic Andy was, but obviously he didn't get a chance and left after the match. Just keep an eye on him though I suspect after my this post he may be a bit careful.
