Your post gets an asterisk.
You have to mention wind at least once and a roof no fewer than 3 times.
Real life was most inconvenient these last few days from a tennis perspective as I couldn't watch any of the USO matches!
The feedback I've had from freinds who watched the SF's is that the Murray / Berdych match was about as exciting as as sheep eating grass! Yawnworthy, but apparently the sheep would be somewhat more interesting.
My personal relief that Murray is through makes the deadliest of deadly boring matches worthwhile. So I'll watch it later. We Brits have suffered from a GS title drought for long enough, and I don't care how we do it ( Murray may have to hit Djokovic over the head & run off with the trophy for all I care!
) but Murray HAS to win it somehow!
My sources also say that the Djokovic match was only marginally more interesting albeit with the overnight break.
The dilemma for me is that of the two players, I much prefer Djokovic's game. But my heart goes out to Murray.
If ND wins, he'll underline the excellent year he's had & defend his title. If AM wins, it'll be his first GS title & consolidate the Olympic title win. Each man has a lot to play for.
And so, may they both play well, give it their all, and may the best player in the match take the title. I hope it's a thriller!
