Мечтаю работать без посредников.
А давайте создадим без помредников ресурс какой-нить и будем прямых клиентов туда собирать!
Есть у кого мысли!
 You seem to be astray my Russian friend - thats what I think!  Foreign language threads would be a real headache for the moderators I guess!!

Next year,,,Federer will win this Shanghai title to complete a masters title he does not have...you Murryaholics aka Murraynation still underestimate and hate the Federer Express!  More fuel for victory!  Federer will finally win on Murray's hard court surface!  No worries mates!

Even if I was a Fed fan, I would know that it would never happen.
It is like saying Fed will beat Rafa in the French Open finals...high hopes and too desperate.. Fed fans..don't dissapoint yourselves like this.

I agree Aileen.......That crossed my mind too!

Agreed, but still believe that Andy's situation was due to the effects of his virus infection.

I agree about the fitness, Tamila.  After all it was Djokovic who started to show signs of running of steam in the 5th set of the USO final.  Leaving aside his dubious medical time-out, he had started stretching his quads by the middle of that set, whereas Andy was showing no signs of fatigue right up to the end.

I am having the same problem with the website.

I have just watched the final set and it seemed to me that it was down to who ran out of juice first.  I feel that if Andy had not had a virus he would have more than Nole left in the tank as I do think he is the fitter.  Neither of them gave up mentally which bodes so well for future matches between them.  I cannot wait. I can only watch at my son's after the match.

Sorry - slightly off topic but is anyone else having problems with Andy's official website?  For weeks now when I try to go into any of the news items the screen just goes blank except for a background picture - annoying....
Just tried it and it's OK with me.  Anyway it seems that he's now back in the UK, so that's good to know.  Kim and the dogs will do wonders for him.

Hi All,

I watched the final yesterday, sort of. I woke up yesterday morning with a migraine, the details of which I will spare you all, but I wasn't about to miss another epic. Trying to watch tennis when your head is spinning isn't fun, but it was a high quality match from both Andy and Novak.

As many of you have said, it just seemed as if Andy ran out of steam in the third set. It's a shame, but it was a close match and Andy fought. I don't think we can ask for more than that, especially given what he has done this year.

I think it's good to hear Andy sounding positive. I'm sure he's disappointed, but it's not the end of the world. It really could have gone either way.

It really does feel like there has been a changing of the guard now at the top of the game. The rankings might not quite agree, at least not yet, but for me Andy and Novak are the dominant players now. I'm really looking forward, God willing, to watching their rivalry play out over the next few years. I think it will be fascinating.

I couldn't agree more with what some of you have said about the crowd in Shanghai. Considering that Andy won two years in a row, the disrespect they showed him was a disgrace.

All in all I don't think it was a bad week for Andy. He wasn't 100% well and still got to the final, and he got under Smugfed's skin on the way. You can't say fairer than that.

Well said TJ.

What Andy says on his blog:

"Yeah, I played pretty well for the most part (in Asia). You know, the match against Stepanek wasn’t particularly good, but I played fairly well in Tokyo. It could have been a different story. I could have come away with two wins.”

“But, last year I came away from Asia with three wins. I didn’t win a Grand Slam and the Olympics. Kind of a big year. It didn’t go necessarily as I would have liked.

This year I would have signed up for the way I played here and having won the US Open.”


Absolutely, Andy  clap
Love it!  I do think he needs a little time off to take it all in.  It was so great to see him back in Dunblane in his trackie bottoms and hoodie - just so down to earth and sharing his achievements with everyone.  He's a rare breed and a thoroughly good guy who deserves it all.
