Andy will likely have to beat Murray and Nadal for the title or at least one. Should be a good test for him.

EDIT*
By title I mean Queens

Sorry Queens will always be the Stella Artois championships to me none of this Aegon rubbish! I agree Ryan will be a tough test but having said that both Murray and Nadal have to win as well!!!!!

Equalling his best showing at the AU. Improving one round at the French Open. Could that run of fine performances during majors continue at Wimbledon?

Yeah, here's to hoping for a good draw. I want to say more, but I feel like I'll jinx it.

...Fool me three times, either I'm kind of stupid or you're really good at this.

Re: "The Grass is Always Greener!" Grass Season Thread

I see I'm not the only one who's getting really excited for the grass (short) season, hopefully my expectations aren't too high and I won't be disappointed.
The key for Andy in my opinion will be to play a bit more aggressive and to show a more attacking game than he has showed so far this year, despite the fact that it has been a pretty successful year so far. I think he should use his improved agility as an advantage he maybe didn't really have, say, last year rather than, maybe, relying on it too much like he did in certain matches this season.
The serve of course will be crucial, all those kick serves on clay made me miss Andy's 135,140+ MPH huge serves but it was never a problem on grass
If he does that, the chances for an early exit like last year won't be too high. obviously the draw will also play a part.

Good luck Andy!

Oh schnapp!! Did you guys see this thread from the GM!?!

Stephen Dawring from the All England Club..Wimbledon court back to 1990s speed!

Court will play faster than it has for the past 10 years.

I saw it, let's hope it's true. And let's hope for Andy to get a good draw
