Kyle Edmunds ranking will take a hit, defending Semi final points he was destroyed by Berdych in straight sets.

Andy showed a lot of fight, despite not getting the result, shame I really wanted him to pull it off.


#443

I certainly didn’t think that when I started watching Murray’s match at 8am, i’d still be watching it 4 hours later. Bautista Agut was in impressive form coming into this so bravo to Andy taking it to 5 sets despite only having 1 hip. A defeat looks likely, but impressive performance none the less.


#444

Lion hearted performance from Andy, good to see the crowd really getting behind him.


#445

Emotional interview. They’ve just played him tribute messages from other tennis players. I think i’m going to cry :sob:


#446

Best tribute I could give him is that he made me care about tennis to an extent.


#447

Are you back to no fucks given now then? :smile:


#448

Kind of lol


#449

Fair play to Bautista Agut :eyes:

Had the crowd and the Murray circus against him and managed to get the job done

I’m not a massive Tennis fan, but it’ll be interesting to see how British tennis fares post Murray era. Sure there’s a couple of them dotting around in the men and women’s game right now, but I really don’t believe we’ll see anyone of them go on to do particularly great things, all seem very average. I guess Murray’s focus might be to try and discover the next generation of players as we head towards a somewhat lean period again.


#451

Yeah British Tennis is fucked without Murray, have a couple of players like Edmund and Evans floating around but I can’t see it being much more than that.


#452

Djok is a shoe in for the AO I feel.


#453

It’s like 2am in Australia and they’re still playing tennis. Not much of a crowd, mind.

I find it hard to get behind Konta. I’m not a fan of this switching nationalities thing.


#454

Does anyone actually like her? :sweat_smile: BBC usually have to result to having comments written about her closed off when she loses a match, because of the amount of dislike people write about her. Though even without the nationalities thing, she doesn’t really have much of a personality.

Take her back will ya @Aussiegooner ? :cristo:


#455

I agree. It’s hard to get behind a Hungarian born Australian who spent the first 14 years of her life in Australia and represented them for a large portion of her career.


#456

Off to the Australian Open tomorrow, always an enjoyable day.

Lennox Lewis on the other hand. . .
