What a match, outstanding performance Andy!! The interview was brilliant too, nice to see Andy so relaxed and confident, i loved the 'going out to get hammered' comment, great stuff. Brilliant news too that for the second match in a row Andy will face a player who has just endured a tough 5 setter, maybe the stars are aligning nicely!
His attitude and performances in recent tournaments have been so impressive, Andy has hardly put a foot wrong since the US Open and looks to be on course for the big prizes at last. It makes me chuckle though to hear the comms credit Lendl for nearly every great shot that Andy plays at the moment, did they not watch in Cinci, Shanghai, Tokyo etc?..
Don't get me wrong, Lendl is an outstanding appointment and will prove to be invaluable in the coming months but it would be a shame if he receives more credit than is due at this stage. Small price to pay i suppose if Andy wins his first slam next weekend!
Still buzzing after that match, Andy showed some real touches of genius out there today, the shot in the first set when he chased down Llodra's brilliant lob and turned and hit in one movement was probably my favourite Murray moment of the tournament so far.
