In fact all I really care about is that he makes it to the QF because he needs to maintain points, whatever happens from there is up to Andy.
Well, you never know, but we've seen enough Roger-Andy matches. Andy needs to be aboslutely at his best to make the match competative. They played twice in AO, in semifinals - 2007 and 2009 - Andy was playing well, and he still got a beatdown.

And at this point of his career, QF is nothing. He has played enough QFs. It's Slam or not. Here, though luck. Maybe at Wimbledon will be better.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

I just want Andy to get as far as he can by playing how I know he can. Maybe Fed will get sick, whatever and end up not even making it all the way...not likely but this is tennis where anything happens. I'm not disappointed he's not getting a slam; I'm more disappointed that he's not playing anywhere close to where he needs to play in order to win that slam, except for Wimby 09.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Maybe Gilles Simon will have another accident and beat Fed before he gets to Andy.

Otherwise this draw is and I can't see anyone new winning this title. Same old, same old.

*edit*

Flashback to last year's Koala-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."

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Andy plays Jan Hajek in round 1

Jan can play brilliant at times and he nearly beat Fish at US Open until he got injured. But it is rare he can keep it up for a long time so Andy should win in 3 sets. Jan has also just came back from injury and has not played for a while so this makes it easier for Andy.

Honestly he and Nole should just go it alone.

The great thing about democracy is that it gives every voter a chance to do something stupid.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

I agree. The only ones who are funny and have a sense of entertainement are Andy and Novak. The rest of them do not know what to do.Hewitt is cute but not that funny.

I AM A BIG FAN OF ANDY
I LOVE ANDY

Agree, and Murray is actually pretty good with the physical comedy. He didn't say much but his grunting and his trick shots were fun. I think he likes to play off of Andy and Novak even if he's too shy to lead the way. I knew AndyR was going to shout out foot fault even before he sat down in the chair. Loved the way his Weekend at Bernie's joke went right over the head of half the audience.

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.

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

murray was pretty good out there. ia that he's better with the physical comedy. and of course novak and andy -- surprise, surprise -- were their usual charming selves out there. the girls weren't that bad, either (i thought ana and novak were pretty amusing together). i've only watched the first segment so far, though, but rafa and roger are usually amusing together and kim is fun, too -- last time i saw sam she was a bit awkward, hopefully she loosened up some this time.

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

Re: Starting off 2011 Down Under

Hopefully Andy just bought the owner of that hat a new one and didn't return it soaking wet with Andy sweat. He was pretty funny when he sat in the linesman chair and went on about how easy it was to call lines.
