We all have a challenge ahead of us- assuming of course that our man goes on to win more Slams, as we're pretty sure he will, how do we avoid the Federer-fan curse of turning into smug idiots? I guess it helps that Andy isn't a smug idiot. Do you think fans come to resemble their players??
I am thinking constantly about the last year this incredible man has given us. Olympic gold, US Open Champion, Wimbledon Champion. Not to mention the other trophies in between.
I love Lendl's comments about him being the best in the world. No arguments here. If he maintains this consistency (and I'm almost sure he will) he'll be #1 by early next year I reckon. I know that's not his main focus but it would be amazing for it to happen!
I hope he knows how much joy he's brought to so many people. It's incredible really. I've been walking on air for three days!
I said to my husband on Sunday morning that while I was paralysed with nerves I thought he might get it done in straight sets. I think he went out there for every set with the same mentality he had for the 5th set at the USO. He had the determination and skill to just get it done. Not that Novak made it easy, but Andy was better on all fronts on Sunday.
