When did you become a fan of Andy?

for me :

i would say Wimbledon offically, but i noticed him in queens at first. I saw that he beat dent (who is in the top 40 at that time) and almost beat ToJo. so i knew that boy much have had talent in him. so i kept an eye on him.

Once Wimbldon came around, i was suprised that he got the 3rd round, and even more 2 sets to love against Nably, a guy u dont roll against normally. But injury and cramps hurt his chances and then he lost. but i knew the boy had talent from then on and it was just a matter of time before it kicked in.

I cannot stand Djokovic
NEW YORK METS

I'm an American who loves clay tennis and the clay season...what is wrong with that picture?

Since Queens 2005. I watched the match Murray vs Johansson and I noticed the talent.

Me too. I remember seeing him on TV in 2004 and then being very impressed. I remember him making his ATP Debut last year in Spain losing to Hernych.

Re: When did you become a fan of Andy?

I'd have to say Queens '05. He never really registered in my brain before Queens and I have no idea why.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.
