Andy Murray 11, Smugfed 9!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, gloating over (he won
!) I will be good.
I haven't read everyone's comments since the match ended. I'll savour it later, and boy will it feel good!
I didn't feel nervous until just before the match began. I'd slept okay, listened to Chariots of Fire last night, and watched the Olympic final again, so I was prepared. Trouble was, it wasn't me playing - which might be just as well
I watched on BBC in the end today. Apart from Castle and Lloyd being dismissive of the Olympic win (Federer was exhausted apparently, which makes Castle a hypocrite of huge proportions) it was good coverage.
Andy is really looking the part in these big matches now. I thought he looked nervous before the match, which is understandable, but it was great to see him get off to a good start. It was obvious he'd come to play. I loved seeing him take it to Federer, bossing the thing and taking advantage of how iffy Federer looked. It was a shame about the second set tie break, and not closing it out in the 4th set, but that fifth set was really quick. I must give credit to Federer for puttting up a fight too, just in the interest of balance. Well, Andy won, so we can afford to be gracious.
How well did Andy do to regroup after the fourth? It was stunning. I was having visions of the USO!
I thought Andy served so well, and his return game was fantastic too. He just looked so in control out there. I always think it's a measure of Andy when he makes Federer lose the plot a bit. Today he reduced him to using bad language and having a go at the umpire. Well done Andy
Andy just seems to be growing in front of our eyes. I love it to death!
Oh, and just to say it again, he won!
I still think he's going to do it you know, I really do.
