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).

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

I agree. I too will be rooting for Novak.

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

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).

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!

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

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.

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.
