See this is why I'm mad that Scotland wasn't able to win their independence from Great Britian. Why couldn't Andy be Irish? That way their long Slam drought would be GB's problem and there would be less pressure.

He's dropped 1 set this tournament and spent not much over 10 hours on court to this point, he should have it in the tank even if Pics extends him a bit.

Andy has to show what he's made of here, the stakes just got higher, he doesn't have the "lost to the GOAT" argument anymore if he makes the final and then doesn't perform.
Very true. He needs to go out there and act like he's been there before, because guess what? He has.

But just to be safe I'm looking up some African Voodoo rituals to use for tomorrow.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Djokovic has been playing really well so even if Murray plays him for the first time in a Slam final (in fact their first GS match against each other ) I'm definitely not going to underestimate him.

First of all he has to get through Pics which will be tough.

And it is kind of unfair that both semis weren't on the same day but, hopefully he will still get a days rest.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Not going to get ahead of myself. Hope Andy plays great tomorrow and I'll brave the internet police again to follow the beeb livetext page at work. Although they might be on to me after my victory dance when Nole won today
Play well Andy

It's coming And we've almost got enough players now for our own DC team
But Irish? No thanks, he's ours There's no pressure from us Scots, we just want him to do his best, we've no GS tradition to worry over, if Andy does it, he'll be our first.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

I bet all the English people that hate him and say he is Scottish and not British will suddenly start saying oh he is British

Saying that there are a fair number of 'English' people that support him

Well of course there are sensible tennis fans amongst the English too I supported Henman and I didn't feel nationality was a barrier to that

There are also numpties in every country but there's nothing I like better than an anti-Scottish clown to sharpen my claws on

I'm still a bit worried for today. Hope Andy's on his game!!! Enjoy the match everyone

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

And then loses 3 games to drop the set 6-4. And he was a break up in the second but lost it again.

I am not happy at all with this.

Really why should you? He's had all the chances and he's been letting them slip away so far.

Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer

Andy, I love you, but if you ever put me through anything like that again, I will kill you!

Now at least I can sit back and eat some popcorn for the final.
