Re: Andy's 2011 Australian Summer
Andy I love you, but I feel like going down to Melbourne and spanking you with one of your rackets right now.
And you wouldn't enjoy it.

I will take it. He should have enough in the tank from week 1 for the dropped set not to matter. Dolgo is a handful. Really happy he is in the sfs after my doom predictions. I hope he wins it but he is supposed to lose to nadal so it wouldn't be a terrible loss. Still, Andy win it anyway
Actually, if Andy and Pics both played the way the played today, Pics has a huge chance against him. Trying not to think about it!
Andy won't play that way against Pics - he played the junk route against Dolgo because he really didn't have much choice, trying to out-power and out-aggressive Delpo would have been a really bad idea. Tsonga and Soderling tried that and they're already back in Europe planning their spring.
No, Andy will play the right way against David but I don't expect an easy match at all, it's a match Andy should win but could lose. He beat David 62 62 at the WTFs but I refuse to take much comfort in that
I agree Djokovic for my money has been the best player consistently over past 2 weeks, he should be favourite no matter who comes through the other semi.
But you know those dumb assess in the press will be putting the pressure on Murray now. They are thick if they think Djokovic isnt the favorite for the title seeing as he's the only one in the final and he only one with a GS to his name.

Well Andy will need to step up then and win comfortably - he's got the tools - if he doesn't, then it's really his own problem. If Djokovic can take down Federer in straight sets, Andy should be able to do the same to Pics. He's dropped 1 set this tournament and spent not much over 10 hours on court to this point, he should have it in the tank even if Pics extends him a bit.
Andy has to show what he's made of here, the stakes just got higher, he doesn't have the "lost to the GOAT" argument anymore if he makes the final and then doesn't perform.
