No doubt that it was James' excellent return game today that threw Andy off, but as Deb said, Andy should have expected it. But James was also choking in this match, and I am afraid he might do the same in tomorrow's final against Hewitt and that's all Lleyton will need to run with it.
I don't know what this win/loss will mean for Andy and James at Wimbledon. Personally, I don't think it will mean much, but anything can happen.
I am pleased to see James doing well on grass, he has always had the game for it. I think he has the game for every surface really, all he needed was a jump-start win. At RG it was Almagro, and here for grass it's Andy, unfortunately.
I'm sure Sue Barker is disappointed too.
For a while maybe but then she'll just flirt with James.
