    I've just finished Resurfacing. I didn't want it to end. It was compelling from start to finish. If anyone deserves to be happy and pain free, it's most certainly Andy. I wish him (and ultimately us!) many long years of continued pain free happiness, whether it's on or off the tennis court. I loved the discreet little peeks at Sophia and Edie. Edie is the sweetest, cutest little thing. Andy has formed a special bond with her as he was around more from she was a baby. I will most certainly be watching this many more times, and I'm sure everytime there will be tears afresh. I'm off now to read all the comments on here as I haven't had time to do that yet. Wanted to watch the film first. Apologies if I've repeated anything that has already been said.

    I’m watching it right now. It’s wonderful revisiting some of the footage I remember from years ago, seeing the young curly-haired tennis player that so many people didn’t quite understand. He captivated me from the very early days, and I was sure that if I happened to know him personally I would really like him. Like most of the fans on this forum, we really did ‘get’ him, we stuck by him and felt at one with him. Now he’s older, nothing has changed and nothing will change my huge respect and affection for him. ‘Resurfacing’ is a wonderful celebration of a truly great sportsman and a thoroughly decent human being. Thank you Andy for adding something very special to my rather ordinary life.

    Well. Where to start?

    I mean, it's all very well for those 'tennis-fan-for-Wimbledon-only' people, who for about 3 weeks of every year become Andy's biggest fans, got opinions on everything, armchair analyst, keyboard warriors. For the other 49 weeks of a year, they probably give him little thought. But it's not like that for us. We live it all the time & the film was in many ways just like following Andy's matches. Ups & downs, gains & losses, success & failure, humour & anger. Amazing to see it from his perspective & to see his family & team supporting him in ways we don't see.

    I laughed, cried, smiled, cried, fist pumped, cried. It hurt you to watch some bits but in the same way it is worth the agony of being an Andy fan for the ecstasy of the victories, it was worth every damn tear.

    So if there is any kind of justice in this world, then long may he play tennis, win matches, get trophies, be happy & be pain free.

    Can't wait to sit down and watch this. Saving it for when I have time to give it my full attention- and recover afterwards

    I tried to watch this last night but it wasn't available over here, so imagine my surprise when I found out that it is now available in USA.
    I sat down and watched.
    It was am amazing documentary of Andy. I echo all of your thoughts. I loved the way he was so open, and it was heartwrenching.
    Was good to see familiar faces, who truly deserve to be part of this. I will definitely be watching it again.

    Night out cancelled - so I was able to pour a wee glass, sit back and enjoy. Compelling viewing. What a fighter. So many emotional moments but yet so dermined. Certainly an easier watch knowing what followed .... but oh my the memories of those difficult days. The doubles at Queen's is probably my favourite tennis moment of the year. Just such unconfined joy - from Andy and from us fans. ( despite my frustration at having to abandon the final to catch my flight home after first set. )

    I've just received an email from Kurtis Reid from the BBC enquiries team saying the BBC will never show this, as Amazon have got exclusive rights to it.
