P.S. You live in Switzerland but support Andy? Will you have to cut yourself in half to support both sides?

We're gonna lose, i can see it now. I do thibk that we're having to scrape the barrel slightly what with Alan Mackin now that we have lost Tim. Hopefully he will get better or we can get some better players in.

Andy, your country believes in you.

Of course we will probably get tonked by the Swiss, but who cares? I think our man will win one rubber at least.

Will he play Federer first? It could be the opening match, sadly I can't watch:bigcry: I have some difficult test's and won't be able to join you here:bigcry:

GOOOOOOOOOO GB

It's the right tactical move. I'm so pleased Bates has had the balls to drop his number 1 player and not feel pressured to play him. We want Mackin to tire Federer as much as possible for his other two matches. If he could lose somehow in 4 or 5 I'd be elated only slightly less than if he were to win!
I hope the Andy vs Federer match still takes place as a live rubber!

Alan to win in 5, Andy to win in 4 then Jeremy to pick Alan and Andy for the doubles and they win in straight sets

Scotland 3 Switzerland 0.. what a victory that would be!!

A man can only dream :D lol

The Wawrinka match should give us an indication as to how Andy may fair on the clay next year. His results on clay in the first half of this year were very disappointing and in comparison Wawrinka has a couple of titles at Challenger level, plus a final at ATP level, so is a decent player on clay and should really be a strong favourite.

Still, I expect Andy will rise to the occasion. It could be a good match.

Well Andy is considered to favour clay, and his grinding game is considered similar to Hewitt's, and Hewitt isn't amazing on the surface, which is baffling.

If he can beat Wawrinka, I will jump for joy, as it gives us real hope of winning, plus it gives the clueless haters (who often come out with false information to use as ammo) a bloody nose. Bring it on.

Saturday

Now they only need to win the double and then we have Federermoronarse-Murray:worship:

No no noooooooo :sobbing:

Ack, Andy didn't play the big points very well today. He could have had that match done in four. It was his after the 1st. :sad: But good effort, hard conditions for a young guy to play in, and Stan is a good player.

Those dropshots when they worked, fabulous. Some of the angles, great. But not enough of those strung together today :(

Mackin :sad:

Onto tomorrow (:

Beaten in 4 sets, how many times was Andy broken today? Maybe he will now admit he isn't really a clay courter :sad:

09-24-2005, 03:27 PM
only 2 times.

OOPS! That was meant to be a reply to the earlier post about the times Andy lost his serve today!

ClaycourtaZzZz.

He won't play tomorrow cause he'll fly today or tomorrow morning to Bangkok, with Federer and Bastl. (He asked Federer at the net, after the match.)
