    It was a confident display from AM in the first round considering who his opponent was. Agassi's recent interview was probably spot-on - AM could have won a few in the Courier-Sampras-Agassi era. But he's in the wrong (i.e. Super) era and Federer and Nadal are going to be the top two players of all time. Had they been contemporaries with Sampras, they would have made him and Agassi look quite ordinary.

    A fourth SF showing will be respectable for AM. Whether he takes it a step further actually depends on one of the top 3 making a slip-up or injury IMO.

    You'd be better off with the Naim DAC and some mineral water extracted from the chalk streams surrounding Salisbury. Your complexion must be non-existent after all that gunk and your hearing completely screwed.

    I believe that was one of the biggest upsets in the history of tennis. No wonder this thread is going mad... Hello? Hello? Anyone there?

    Great performance!

    What a closing game, no nerves whatsoever...

    But give credit to Rafa, still took the time to sign autographs (despite being, obviously gutted) when leaving the court a true gent!

    Well done that man. Amazing service. Rafa not settled . Shaky the other day.

    If grass plays like real old fashioned grass it definately is not ideal for him.........he is adapting.....and he didn't today.

    There you go. Biggest upset maybe since Boris lost to Doohan? Can remember coming in from work that night and WTF?
    Andy did good job on that freak of tennis that Solid just loves.....

    You know what they say about Czechs and grass tennis. Nadal's shocking early exit really works in Murray's favour. How could he not reach the final now? This is the Diamond Jubilee year and who knows, he could just win. And in true Scots style, step on Elizabeth II's toes when she hands him the pineapple cup.

    Andy is playing well enough ATM. It will take more than that though.
    He has to go on a streak of tennis and just reach another little apex to oust Roger or Djo here.

    Rosol will be dangerous too. He may be on the streak of his life with courts and moment suiting him now to do a bit more damage.

    I was remembering the Doohan moment last night Lexi as you will at our age! All the speculation but Nadal hates indoors and the ball was just not lifting off the surface which combined with the other guys hot serving streak aided by the faster conditions meant an ambush. Where this leaves the tournament who knows? Tsonga and Murray - tactically brilliant in dealing wih a real threat on grass - are the obvious beneficiaries in the bottom half.

    One question - are the courts a little quicker this year?

    Wet and moister with ball coming through more and staying lower it looks like atm.Lots of slicing. Saw about 2 slice shots in full FO final.

    Has a bearing...........bit like the going in horseracing. Love it..........the permutations and variable nature of the Worlds best tournament.

    Sorry Solid...............bit of a British moment there!

    Much is being made that if they had played on without the roof Rafa might have wrapped it up in 25 mins given that he was in the ascendancy or at least had a break before the roof was pit on. Well, might this might that, Novak might well have won in Paris if..............

    If the courts are indeed faster I reckon Roger may just pull off another Slam win this Summer.

    I take it back! Rog looks old, slow and weak.
    Really think he should retire soon.

    I've not watched tennis for a while; Federer seems a bit shit. When he tries to hit the ball hard, it goes just out. He seems to have no weapons left. Sad to watch...
