(and keep your mouth shut)


But seriously... they are in London, I suspect they got a house this year. He has plenty of time to 'get comfortable' and feel good on grass. I fully expect him to get good results at Queen's Club and W this year, barring injury.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.

I don't know if Andy watches Soderling - Roger (prbably not}, but Robin is proving that nowadays if you play powerful and agressive tennis, you can beat Federer.

He tweeted that he was watching. Andy's problem is not that he doesn't know what to do, his problem is that he doesn't (or can't) execute it when he needs to.

Maybe this time, maybe this year, every year I keep telling that to myself and then end up like this

Come on Andy!

Andy's problem is that he's had bad luck and bad matchups. A problem that will not be problem this year if he gets the number 3 seed. I think he'll get a shot at a non-Federer final.


Who will cry along with me if he wins?

Makes no difference if he is the 3 or 4 seed, they are drawn randomly to be placed in the draw opposite 1 and 2. His problem will be if he is the 5 or 6 seed, I don't know how much he can be moved up with grass court rankings considering he is currently #8

Re: The "You'll be even more popular in England if you win Wimbledon" grass thread

I don't think he can get the #4 seed, he lost points during the clay season, Soderling is defending his RG points, and Murray and Rafa still have a good deal of grass points to add. The fact that he basically had no clay season at all makes it nearly mathematically impossible I think, even if he were to win queens (Though that obviously would not hurt, for several reasons)

Edit: no, it seems like the only question is seed 5 or 6 http://www.menstennisforums.com/show...46#post9994046

To be healthy and have a good draw is what he needs! I just sort of fear the hype machine, Andy being a "contender" and all..

Fumus, if he wins, I will for sure cry with you!

I have faith, do you?
