Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

I didn't see much of this match at all, but for some reason it reminds me of the Wimbledon match he lost to Gasquet - as in, oh he's killing me with his backhand, so I'll keep hitting there. I don't understand why/how he gets into that thought pattern, but it makes me want to grab him by the shoulders and shake him vigorously (which of course, he would hardly feel at all).

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.

Baby shaking is a crime though

but burly man-athlete shaking is not. Seriously, picture me trying to shake Andy, it's funny. I'd have better luck shaking an oak tree.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Re-watching parts of Andy's 2003 Australian open matches. So different, yet so good.

Right now he is playing like its his job.
I want to see him to play like he loves it ...before it is too late.
Seems there is no happiness just to be there, at all.
It ends up every match is a dodged bullet or pitiful/astounding loss.

it is sad to see him no happiness play right now.

Yes I really want to see Andy play like 2003 the old good day.

I just really don't want him to have to retire and comeback to find it...

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

As much as I like Novak, I'm going to be really sad if he gets his second slam before Andy.....

That being said, go Andy Murray!

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

It will be sad but I just can't root for Murray. I like Novak too much and it's inevitable that he was going to be in a situation where he can get his second slam. Might as well do it sooner than later (like the Band-Aid analogy).

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Well, it was going to happen sooner or later. Novak is waaay more solid than Andy in Slams in recent year an a half. Andy deserves more slams, but he is not putting himself into position to win them. At least for now.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

I know some Roddick fans are upset that Djokovic might win his second slam before Andy does but personally I am excited about the Muzzole final. It's nice to have a Fedal-free final for once, even though I would've loved to see Rafa get his Rafa slam. Definitely rooting for Novak to win, I don't think his winning a second slam has any bearing on Roddick. Who knows maybe Novak winning will inspire Andy?

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

I agree. I too will be rooting for Novak.

Make that 3 One can't compare Andy to Nole- very different games and styles.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

I'm rooting for Nole but would not be upset if Murray won. I think this is the happiest I've been for a final in the longest time. Andy's play as of late doesn't warrant a second major so I don't care if Novak gets a second before he does--he has to play like he wants it (Wimby still makes me sad).
