Oh dear Caz....what know? Cannot agree that if Djokovic wins it makes Andy's task any easier over either of them! wavrinka is on a high atm....let's leave it there...just shows to go that even the BEST can go down every now and again

Have to say have not posted for many months but have been following this website regularly.
Think Novak has/should have the measure of Wawrinka having the position of all the knowledge of Andy┬Ěs match with him. If the world number 1 cannot go fwd to the final against the world No.10--- something is wrong.
The fact that he lost the 1st set - won 2nd on a TB AND is still currently struggling says a lot for the pressures that Andy felt in playing Stan

"I didn't move my best tonight, but it didn't feel like I was moving really badly," said Murray, who was playing his first match since reaching the Dubai final. "My return let me down, and he hardly missed the ball, either. That's the thing. The level of tennis nowadays you get no easy first round matches and you play poor match, that's what happens. So can't allow it to happen. I don't know exactly why because I was playing really, really good tennis the whole of the week and the buildup to it."

Sometimes, sh*t just happens. 

I'll be watching livescores for the doubles but I'll be back for Miami
yes

I haven't watched the match yet or read all of the postings re the match. However, having read some I totally agree with Bevc. This time last year we were all shouting for Andy to get a coach - he has, and as far as I can see his game is changing due to Lendel's input. A BBC report I read first thing this morning suggested that his backhand went awol - I've noticed this in many of his matches since Ivan has been taken on board. Obviously, the tactic atm is to be more aggressive/improve the first and second serve and his forehand (which he has) it's becoming a huge weapon -  but maybe to the initial detriment of what was an amazing backhand. The match stats suggest that he was having a particularly bad day (again) and that G-Lopez was on his game. That's all!

It's not Jet-lag, it's not psychological (thank God) it was just a bad night. I'm sure the Murray team will be fully analysing what went on and working on those aspects in the next ten days. Roll on Miami - and let's all just hope this is yet another blip and also that more lessons will have been learned.

How is it that Rafa has so many points in the race?  I thought he had only played Doha and the Aussie Open - what am I missing?

Probably his Davis Cup points won last year

Going into Indian Wells and Miami Andy is 560 points behind Federer after points to defend have been deductedfor last year.

Fed has 720 to defend (got to the semis in both) Andy 20.

Therefore, best case scenario is that Andy wins both and even if Fed gets to the final in both Andy goes 240 points ahead and takes the No3 Spot.

However, if Andy even gets to both as a finalist and Federer defends his two semis - Fed stays at No3 by 80points

That interview is mature, honest and for me extremely encouraging. I know that Lendl has only been there for a few weeks but OMG what an upbeat performance by Andy in today's match. the only downside was his play in the 4th set, which I just couldn't get my head round. But in the interview he explains how/why it happened succinctly. Bravo - what a match!

Well done Rafa, its great to see Mr Smug taken down a peg. Maybe Mats Wilander  will now shut up what a pain he is. It is so so obvious that he loves Mr Smug and goes way way over the top.

Does anyone know what happened to Wilander to land him up in hospital this week? Chris Bradnam (or whatever his name is) alluded this morning on air that it had something to do with a toilet & a light switch w00t

Not sure anyone does.  MBE is a bit more 'senior' I think which means you have to have licked a few more 'ars*s' than just the OBE

OBE stands for "Other B**gers Efforts" - at least that was what someone told me who had been actually given one  lol

Yes and he said Djoko will beat Andy tomorrow!!

let's hope he changes his mind tomorrow then  Rolling Eyes

mats wanted Fed to shout out in Swiss/German...actually I have heard fed in other matches calling out what appears to be "Come on" in English. But when you consider that it would be "Kommen" it would sound just like english!
26  General Community / Andy Talk / Re: AO 2012 SF: Murray vs Djokovic on: January 26, 2012, 04:16 pm
I think he will, everyone on Eurosport thinks Djoko will!!!

 shocking At least Greg got this morning right - he changed his mind from Rafa to Fed-exiting

OMG.

I've just had a call from Radio Five Live. Do I want to take part in a live debate on air tonight about Murray's chances?

I said yes, but they might not go with me because they really wanted someone who thought he couldn't do it. I was perhaps a bit too 'pro-Murray'.

Why do they have so many that think that Andy will win  Think

Rafa was good Today but there is nothing inevitable about him nor Novak, still they are serial slam winners and have to be put ahead of Andy.
We still dont have a good idea of Andy's form yet, but given the way his draw luckily opened up thats unsurpising.
Certainly he's played enough Tennis already to be prepared & should have plenty of physical & mental energy for the days ahead. So I expect nothing less than the extraordinary from him in the coming days & he's going to need it.

There is actually one thing inevitable about Rafa and the new Nole ----- they both fight for every point and never give up. I thought Rafa really showed this today in the 4th set when serving for the match and going down break points. It could have been oh so different if he had allowed Federer the break.
Andy has been lucky in the way that his draw opened up but it means nothing as he is still faced with the W.no.1 and hopefully, no.2 in the final.

It'll be everything x'd...along with a bottle of Valium and a safe seat behind the sofa for me tomorrow  Let's hope the Lendl factor kicks in and he does what he did to Llodra and body smash Djokovic off the court  pray  That would be aggressive enough play for me Whistle

Lucky, you have to use a word from the previous player's song title for your own song title.

Think I have....  wub
