I've turned the tennis off for a while. Boris is getting up my nose and even Petch is grating a bit just now. It will go back on when I'm in bed.
People who think what happened last night was just sport are delusional. Andy has to think like that to keep his approach to playing Federer again clear in his mind. I, on the other hand, do not. Andy was booed last night because he had the bare-faced audacity to deny Federer his gold medal. Fed's fans didn't like way Andy pasted him on Centre Court, or in Shanghai, so they had to do something.
It was nothing to do with Andy being a Scot, or the entire audience having a burning desire to kiss Federer's backside. It was because Federer was playing someone capable of beating him, who had the momentum in their H2H, and who is on the way up whilst their 'man' will soon be on the way out. In other words, it was all because the opponent was Andy Murray.
Listen to the crowd tonight. Totally different. Last night was personal. Tonight is not, even if Novak and Smugscum are not best mates.
Not apples to apples tho ...Novak isnt from Scotland. He's creamed Fed a few times tho.
Looks like Novak may do same again tonight....I hope anyway. Hopefully a Scottish flag is there with Come on Novak written on it.
