I see that dour, po-faced, inverse-charismatic, male equivalent of Susan Boyle has won.
Please no, not again, Sir Andy Murray !!!!! I would rather eat a goat shit sandwich than see this bloke win another accolade.

Honestly, we'll be giving awards to lollipop ladies who can wipe their arse with both hands..

Go an write a song with your dad, Art's done fuck all since bright eyes.....

He will eventually be Sir Andy Murray, its inevitable and deserved IMO.

quality tennis player, I hope he retains his title although Djok is looking imperious.

not seen Nadal or Feds yet, even Wawrinka could cause an upset

He's really gone up in my estimation over the past couple of years. Not everyone on this planet radiates with happiness and smiles. I just want to see him do well, he seems like a well-grounded, passionate person and it's great to see someone finally bring a bit of pride to British tennis.

That said, I can't see him doing very well at Wimbledon this year. A semi-final finish will be a big achievement.

he's basically going to win until he gets to one of the other big 4, then its a coin toss.

Murray will during his career earn more than most of those put together, he will probably still be earning upwards of 5 million a year for life.
Immortality achieved with last years Wimbledon victory.

How do you measure wealth, I know a millionaire who Jez Moxey wont let in his house, goes there most weeks, not a footballer.

He doesn't go to see Moxey but his stay there is rewarding without having to bother with the arrogance of the owner.

sounds intriguing

is he knocking off mrs moxey or something? - if so he's got a bit of cheek coming round and expecting jiz to let him in

more proof that i'm a horrible person - usually hear of an affair i feel a bit sorry for the partner being cheated on but in this instance it brought a smile to my face :oops:

Andy Powered past Bautista Agut in fairly straight forward fashion.

Always pushing himself to play better as well even though he smashed his opponent off the court. nice to see.

Should progress past Big Kev today, far too many gaps in Kevs Game, should be dealt with by Andy

Andy Murray was very good, Novak Djokovic was brilliant this week will end in tears for the home support.

I though Novak was a bit Shaky in the 3rd set against Tsonga.

Novak had no answer to a lot of Tsonga's serving, although Novak put nearly as many aces/unreturnables himself.

If the 3rd set had been the first set then I think it would have been a very different match.

I thought Tsonga was reduced to going for the low percentage shot, all pace and power trying to hit the lines.
Unless its your lucky day that kind of streak catches up with you.

I think for Murray to win he has to be hitting the first serve consistently then also far better quality with the second serve, and maybe serve and volley a little more.

Does he want it as much as Novak, I dont think so.

Murrays first serve has been constantly improving since he started playing. its better now than last year. his second serve has been of a consistent quality for years IMO.

I do think Djok seems to want it more this year tho, only time will tell.

Beaten on the day by a player who you look at and think future champion.

Get that serve right Andy, its the key weapon. Second serve just buckled under pressure.

Going well in the Aussie open, he only has to get past Berdych (not a walk in the park) and then hopefully Djokovic will have a tough match against Wawrinka setting up a winnable final.

was lucky that Berdych knocked out Nadal but you only have to beat whats in front of you.

Something you wont see very often, Tomas Berdych is one year older at 29 then his new coach Dani Vallverdu.
Good match in prospect both are in a good place mentally.
