Fair point, yes Winbledon would be great, if only because it would have the Murray haters foaming at the mouth. It would also guarantee a knighthood, which again would be a very satisfying response to the "crap" the British media and certain sectors of the British public have thrown at him over the years. I obviously would prefer him to have loads more victories, but the GS was so important to him and British Tennis.
Is it me or is he so much calmer on the courts nowadays? He really does seem as though he is far more laid back about it all now. The absence of that GS bogie on his back is really noticeable.
I think, Andy, has a very good chance of winning Wimbledon ...IF he can recapture the form that saw him win the Olympic gold and the USOpen....so far this season he is a fair way short of that form. However, he is winning matches without playing his best tennis which is a good sign. The british contingent of the haters...are a sad bunch. They just seem envious of a guy from their neck of the woods not only having outstanding talent but who is maximizing that talent and has achieved fantastic success. All that nonsense continually raised about anti-English comments are just plain sad and more a reflection of their own inferiority complex than any reflection of Andy.
I think the USOpen win erased any self doubts as to whether he could beat the best opponents at the highest level in his sport. The guy is a champion thru and thru. If there are people 'hating' him or taking pride in their indifference to him... they might regret that wasted energy later in life ...as they are watching the best british professional tennis player to grace the game thus far...with no exceptions. They might not live to see another world class british player, who can win, again.
Todays match with Cillic was a mix of exceptional shots...good tactical ralies... terrible shots... and lack of concentration at important moments by both players. Still, I thought Andy actually showed some signs of improvement from his last match ...so that combined with winning the match and not dropping a set ..all in all Job done.
He'll have to play better in the SF and F if he makes it.
