RE: Weeks 26-27 - Wimbledon men's main draw (Andy)


I sincerely hope Andy can beat Dimitrov on Wednesday. Isn't Dimitrov one of the ones who can pass him in the rankings if he progresses further than Andy? Settle it by beating him, Andy, please

Another good one from Andy with some classic moments. Good ball striking and loving the backhand. Forehand not bad either :)

Forecast evidently a bit dodgy for the weekend ( after a good few days ). Hopefully Andy still about and playing in the open air.

I like Grigor, but it was a nonsense Mark and Tim talking about him being in the "fantastic five". The future may be Grigor, that's far too premature. Great how it was instantly dismissed by Mac.

Yes, Grigor would overtake Andy in the rankings if he beat him, and we can't have that !

Murray will have too much game for Dimitrov, whose relative backhand weakness will become exposed. Straight sets, again.

The 'big five' comments are utterly, utterly laughable.

It wasn't long ago that Wawrinka was now part of the 'big four' and Andy was out... all because Andy had surgery and Wawrinka was effectively handed a slam by default. Now it's suddenly Andy back in, Stan (who is still WR3) out, and Dimitrov - who has achieved the square root of f-all and has never even made the top 10, let alone top 5 - is suddenly part of a 'big five'? Where is the logic here?

I like Dimitrov, but he has to the most over-hyped played on tour right now, by some distance. You'd think he'd actually done something on tour to warrant all this hype. I hope Murray puts him in his place on Wednesday and shuts a few people up in the process.

There are three things certain in life these days - taxes, death, and media hype.

 You forget TMH, Dimitrov won Queens and everyone knows that is basically the same as winning one of the other, lesser Grand Slams - better in the case of Wawrinka who made the mistake of winning at the beginning of the year and anything that far back is completely irrelevant if remembered at all. And if those, tennis-y reasons weren't enough, don't forget the other important factors that Dimitrov is better looking than some and has himself a famous, tennis star, girlfriend. Add it all together and it's a wonder the media aren't declaring him as the "best player in the world right now"

 I shall now put my inner cynic back in her box

Oh dear. Would the real Andy Murray please stand up? This poor imitation can barely keep the ball in court.

Woeful from Murray. Unless something changes quick this will be a straight sets defeat.

Wow. Dimitrov throws a drowning man a lifeline.

Hopefully it is a turning point.

Terrible tie break from Andy. Unforced errors, a couple of really passive points and then a kamikaze approach *4-4.

That break has to be it. Rubbish from Andy.

Unfortunately that was the Andy that we have seen for most of the year, simply no where near good enough against quality opposition.
