Andy Murray - US Open and Wimbledon champion! :)

I was glad when Stan won the tie-break because up until then he didn't look as though he believed he could win the match, but it all suddenly clicked into place for him and you could see that the belief was there whilst Fed's faded.  I don't think Stan is playing again until the Portugal Open, but it'll be interesting to see how he fares in Madrid and Rome, RG being a bit too far in the future to make any predictions for about any player since even Nadal seems to be on shaky ground at the moment.

Yes I was glad too as until the tiebreak it seemed like a repeat of a lot of their previous matches - Stan having chances but not taking them and Fed winning the important points. Definitely good signs of his improved mentality today.

It will be good to see how he does in Madrid and Rome. I'd like to see a Rafa/Stan match just to see if the improvements to Stan's game work against Rafa on clay.

How hawt was Stan today.  drool

I knew as soon as he won the TB the match was his. I've been a fan of his for a very long time, and it's great to see him finally get rewarded.

I agree Connor. 

Fortunately for you Nadal fans I can't see the Nadal/Djokovic domination ending any time soon, although I do think Nadal is waning a bit now.

This isn't MTF, players are not in decline just because they lose a few matches.

No problems Gnome.  I just wish some people on this forum would take the same view when this happens to Andy!

I think Stan could be a force to reckon with for some time to come, which might not be good news for Andy's attempts to get back into the top 4.

Ah but if u think how well Federer, Nadal, Ferrer and Wawrinka have been playing past few years and being older than Andy - then Andy still to peak - then everyone else  nervous nervous nervous

Well latest news on Novak is that he will only need to rest his wrist for 10 days, and does not require surgery. I'm guessing he could still make Rome, but he surely would be a bit rusty by then, and wouldn't it be wiser to skip Rome and rehab his wrist the best he could?

Thought Nole was going to have complete rest for 10 days, then reassess? Don't think they know if it's "only rest for 10 days" yet.

Djokovic's wrist injury is going to keep him out for some time. It says in the paper that he could miss the French Open and Wimbledon, he says he has been playing in pain. They seem to be going down like ninepins just goes to show how prone to injury tennis players are.

@LLB
I remember watching the Winter Olympics when they were in Canada and remember being completely shocked at the injuries those athletes suffer. What's more they recover/heal and then do it all over again. shocking
