    I thought it was interesting listening to one of Andy's interviews (not sure which one but I think it was sound only) when he said that he would be prepared to bet his winnings from Cincinatti that Fed, Rafa and Novak would all be fully fit and recovered for the US Open.
    He's not kidding himself, and he's not letting anyone think that it could be an easier ride for him.

    Having said that.....I've got a feeling it could happen this year

    Thanks for the links everyone.

    I too thought it interesting to hear Andy being so certain that Fed, Rafa and Novak would be fully fit for the Open and I'm sure that he's totally right! Still, at this point in time, Andy is in the best shape and I'm sure he'll be fully prepared come next week. It's going to be interesting to say the least!

    I thinks its going to get extremely busy with the US Open coming up. The week before grand slams is often a time to get interesting articles.

    Are people aware that there's a link button in the post a reply box?

    If you click that and place in the url, you can then enter a click-able label/title for links instead of seeing the whole url

    In what way?

    I had a little play with it and it seemed to work ok.

    Click the button that says 'link', the full URL goes in the top box, the title/description in the bottom one.

    There's also a button for embedding videos, which could be useful Smile

    Aaaah. I'd been highlighting the text to link (like in VB) and not putting it in second box - :dimbo:
