That was quite something.  I screamed when Andy won and was just overcome with joy and pride at how he took it to Nole and hung on in there preventing Nole converting any of the breaks he created.  So often people have said oh Andy can't convert the breaks or doesn't play the big points well on the big occasions.   Well he did this time and Nole didn't. I had resigned myself to a third set but Nole blinked first big time.  And thanks for a great report Nigel which really caught the spirit of it. [Just reread it and got the grass joke  Whistle]
And I loved how Andy jumped with joy and looked so so happy afterwards.

I'm so excited that I'll be there on Sunday even though I've got a ticket for court 1 as I'm sure I'll be able to watch on big screen but still haven't worked out what's happening when as between the gold/silver and bronze medal matches.  But just to be part of the occasion will be enough and I'll record it all while I'm away.

I'm desperate to watch that last game again but BBC have taken the video down and aren't showing any signs of bringing it up again. Joke.

Check out all our friends at the Daily Mail. Just one or two negative comments about Andy, but loads of praise and  support!

Lucky you Ruthie... am just a bit green with envy. Smile

Shout loud so as Andy can hear you!

It's just quite ridiculous that he's playing mixed dubs at 12.00 and 16.00 tomorrow and the final on Sunday.

Have they gone stark raving bonkers, or what? Why dont the leave the doubles till after the singles are finished?

I'm worried he'll be knackered by Sunday. If they get beyond Hewitt/Stosur they will play the equivalent of 6 sets in total.

What nutters plan this?

He has to win first. Chances are they'll lose the first match anyway.

I'm sure Andy is fit enough to handle it.  I know it seems like a lot, but he's up for it.

Hewitt and Stosur are a quality pairing, would not be that upset to see them go out would you?

My inability to use this IPad coupled with my pure excitement at the result of today's match (and a couple of glasses of wine) are not a good combination for sensible posting!!!

Yeah Storsur is a good dubs player and she has a great serve too. Lleyton although in decline will give it his all!
The Aussies havent won more than an token medal or two these Olympics. Not like them at all, so these two will be out to take scalps.

It may be best for Andys chances, although I hate to wish for a loss for either player.

Yes, I'm still waiting for the video to appear as I didn't see any of the match.
