    I just looked and there are only a few words with auto-censor and they are not replaced with asterisks (but alternative words) so I have not idea why that has happened to Cazza's post.

    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

    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!

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

    Im cautiously optimistic , well thats what Im saying anyway but deep down Im SO EXCITED !!!
