no wait, he re-emerges on court restringing his shorts. let's hope he's not forgotten his balls, cos he's gonna need nads of iron to beat Rafa over best of 5 on grass!

Will ESPN2 be showing the match live on the west coast?
Nope. NBC stream starts in a little while, though. If you have an HDMI cable and a laptop, you can plug it in to your tv and watch near-HD quality.

aaaaah ha Rafa tried to play the waiting game on Andy but Andy wasn't having any of it. went back inside. Rafa took longer then usual with his pre match routine meanwhile while waiting for andy. Andy came back saw rafa still sitting, took his time again, drank, sat, rafa not best pleased looking towards the court to see his game hadn't worked this time. Rafa gets up first, andy follows..ah-ha!! :mrgreen:

Jokes, love you rafa :shock:

Eastcoaster here. I'll settle for the NBC tape delay (instead of a stream) since the match start time won't be too far from their official broadcast window anyway

Staying away from the net is gonna be hard :(

Conditions look quite quick, its been sunny in london past few days. It might favour Murray if he plays agressive, If Nadal is in the mood and playing agressive then its GSM for Murray. Nadal will decide the outcome of this match. Let's see how well he plays. :)

All these BBC commentators, their instincts are going to be proved wrong, cannot see a Murray win. Do I need glasses?

I don't think it will happen this week, but Murray has got to win a slam sometime. Looking at this results in the past, he's just made WAY too many major semifinals and finals to not win one sometime.

Agree.

I'd sure hate to see Murray once again make a final and then not show up :mad:
worst possible scenario.

Rafa won his first wimbly by beating the best there at that point, and so should Novak if he does. A simple win at wimbledon would just make me furious.:evil::evil:

I think Murray would make it a worthy final, he looks better this year as a player. I'm still picking Rafa for the tournament though.

god some of the Brits in the crowd are idiots. it's like they support their man ironically, with a little smirk and no real belief or care. and I'm a Brit!!

Murray is going to have to come up with some more pace on that forehand and start hitting Rafa off the court. Not sure how he intends to do that.

Murray calls the trainer.

Rafa makes a smart move psychologically. Chooses not to challenge a call he thinks is dodgy, instead using it as a way to pump himself up, create a siege mentality. Then belts a serve return winner.

This is like when Nadal chooses to return first to try to get into the head of his opponent.

Murray is trying to get into Nadal's head by preempting him to the trainer!
