So, he's finally made the final. It's been a long time coming as he prepares to face a home crowd. Then there's the small matter of having to deal with Rodger Federer. I think Federer will pull out all the stops to win but I guess you can never be sure with these things. I'm not really a Murray fan and was wanting Tsonga to triumph. At least the Frenchman managed to smile occasionally and he didn't have to keep making clenched fist gestures in the direction of his.....er.... mother?

I like Tsonga and I thought that he came across as a thoroughly likeable chap during the match. As much as I'd like Murray to win, I can't think of a scenario, failing a sniper in the stands, where he'll be able to better Roger Federer.
I'll be happy to be proved wrong though.
Without Djokovic and Nadal in the final, this is Murray's best chance to win a slam. He has good record against Federal. But dispatching Djokovic in 4 sets, Federal is in great form. So my bet is on him.
In terms of emotion, Murray's achilles is Federer's strength in that Murray's always open to de-railing himself with frustration and anger. At one point in today's game he appeared to tell the crowd to shut up in a show of tetchiness......not a good sign from someone chasing a grand slam.
Roger for me............much more of a gentleman on court and off court.............and I didn't like Tim either...........
Can only imagine that you'll be one of these people that will call him "British" if he wins and "Scottish" if he loses....
Were you were one of Tim Henman's supporters??...
Henman? Oh yes, wasn't he the one that only managed to get his act together after wacking a randomly hit tennis ball against a ball girl's head? Funny how such thing's can change a person's outlook...
This is the only time i wish Scotland had their independance
There is a very strict rule which the media and others follows:
When he wins he's BRITISH
When he loses he's SCOTTISH

slight correction to your comment.

Zzzzzzzzzz ... Murray is proudly Scots, and I doubt very much he sees himself at all as British. Those of us non-scots who support him generally do so on the basis that he is British - that is the connection that earns him support from some. If he wins we (some) will celebrate him as a British victor as that is what connects us. If he loses we won't have the celebration that brings together all the people on the basis of him being British, so he really just remains the proud Scot he is. It ain't a double standard thing really, but it does give a lot of bitter scots something to dig us about when they FINALLY have the chance to actually win something other than curling ....
Start using sugar in your porridge instead of salt ... It's far less bitter ;0)
I suspect you are........... quite right, Adrian.
we're ok Federer with whip him on sunday
Oddly enough until scottishphototours commented on the thread, no mention of nationality came up.
Why make it nation against nation rather than the celebration of someone's achievement regardless of where they come from?
Because it's more fun?
