    It seemed to be fine during the match - I can't imagine that a dozen or so people posting along with a few others viewing would be too much even for a free forum.

    Very Happy

    The stats show the peak was midway through the 1st set (although we're only talking about 24 users)

    I've started a bubble gap thread pointing to the comp on bt.net.
    I might start a US Open one on here depending how it turns out

    Yep on Sky, Andy and Nole are standing under the stairs casually having a chat about where they are staying during the US Open

    Mary Jo F is doing the presentation but can hardly hear her! - it's like the Wimby final -we need 2 mics!!

    Nole is apologising to the fans for retiring

    Andy saying he's played solid all week looking forward to US open next week.
    Taking tomorrow off and watching the weather channel before flying anywhere - so might have to stay another night in Cincy!

    Didn't post during the match - I thought Andy outplayed Nole on the important points. Andy was well on top up a double break in the second set when Nole retired. He should have finsished the match he wasn't seriously injured. Such a shame for Andy - people will say he ony won because Nole was injured - very poor form for a world number 1. I feel cheated.

    Well done for a good week in Cinny Andy - hope you can carry it on in new York.

    Great that Andy lifted the trophy but for goodness sakes when is he going to be credited with beating one of the other top 4 when they're fit? Hope he can take confidence from this, although I'm sure he would have preferred to play an on form Nole - win or lose, as he said he wanted to gauge where his game is before the USO. Not quite sure he got a satisfactory answer today.

    Still mustn't grumble and he's in a better place than at this time last year!! Bring it on!!!

    Sky on court interview:

    Petch - Andy congratulations, a perfect end to what's been a great week here in Cincinnati again for you.

    Andy - Yeah it was good, I thought the standard towards the end of the 1st set was very good - a lot of long rallys. He started off a little bit slow, made quite a few mistakes early on but.. shame the way it ended but been perfect preparation for the US Open.

    Petch - You said in your little interview there are still a couple of things you'd like to work on ahead of the US Open. What would those be?

    Andy - Well I got broken quite a few times this week, I served better as the week went on but like yesterday against Mardy I was up a break 3 times in the 2nd set - I need to get better at closing out the sets; serving better - today I was up a break in the 1st set too and physically I need to do a bit of work. I was in the gym just now after we went inside ... and keep working hard before the start of the tournament.

    Petch - Of course the last time you won here you had your best ever run in New York, do you sort of draw on things like that?

    Andy - Yeah this court I think is very similar to the one in NY, the courts in Canada are different and it's good to know I'm playing well here - similar conditions and yeah, I hope I'm going to have a good run.

    Petch - And what to the next couple for days look like for you, what are you going to do?

    Andy - Erm, take tomorrow off - we're meant to be leaving tonight but the weather in NY is really, really bad just now so we might have to hang here a little bit, or maybe drive!

    Petch - C'mon, from here?!

    Andy - [smiling] its an 8 or 9 hour drive but if our flight gets cancelled tonight then we might take the car - have a little road trip!

    Petch - Do you do the driving?

    Andy - Last time I didn't but I don't mind driving. When we went up to Davis Cup a few weeks ago I drove up to Scotland in 5 hours, so... [bursts out laughing]

    Petch - Yeah we wont let the police know about that anyway!! Well done, congratulations.

    Andy - Thanks! [still laughing!]

    Back in the studio Marcus mentions envelopes with speed camera tickets on the journey up to Scotland, not sure if he was joking!!

    Brilliant news to come home to - so chuffed for Andy - saw the first few games before I headed out and Andy seemed to be playing well.

    Shame it had to end the way it did - but huge credit to Andy for lifting another Masters trophy!

    Wooooooooooooooooooooop!

    No it wasn't ideal but some tremendous rallies in the 1st set which were strongly contested. Andy must take confidence from his display nonetheless though he knows he will need to improve further.
