    He's done well, but I don't think he will be able to beat Federer

    No you're not I think he's a miserable git, I only want him to win because he's a Brit! Would have much preferred for Tim Henman to win

    I'm with you on this too full of himself. I felt so sad for Tim Henman, but I think his nerves always got to him.

    I think being a successful sports person takes a specific type of personality, i guess it's like being a ruthless business person, the type you see in movies breaking up smaller companies or running our banks*cough*. You need to be in the 'zone' and do what is right for the goal you are trying to achieve and not really care how it affects other people. Classic statement from Andy was that he didn't really care how the tension of the match affected his parents. I'm not saying that all people in these type of jobs are like that but i think sadly Andy is and Tim wasn't. Andy is able to block everything else out and maybe this was Tim's downfall -he didn't have that warrior spirit. Pilots do this at work, it's called compartmentalising and you can put the two parts of your life i.e. the caring loving father/husband role with the professional who needs to be focussed as if he makes a mistake it could have terrible consequences. Now Federer, he seems like a nice person but he may just have the balance just right. He always seems to remain calm and under control.
    Should be an interesting match!

    just my take on the situation any way, or maybe he just is a miserable git in everything he does LOL
