“I just wish and pray we get Rafa back. And proper Rafa, putting fear in their eyes, the ‘I don’t want to play Rafa because something like the final here last year could happen’. We deserve to see that, and so do the four of them.” - Mats Wilander

I have literally no clue why he does this “Oh the match is over let’s take of my shirt and put on this jacket” move (especially since he so comically fails at the jacket part ALL THE TIME) but let’s just say I LIKE IT.
Drooling on my laptop right now.

I think theres a huge chance that Murray could win.
Murray leads Tsonga 5-1 in their head-to-head and ever since Murray beat Ferrer in the QFs, Tsonga has been very (and a bit too much in my opinion) vocal about not being happy about playing Murray.
As far as their playing styles goes, I feel that in the past few months the fruits of Andy’s labor of training with Lendl have really been showing; he’s more emotionally composed, he’s making a considerably smaller amount of errors, and all around his game has improved, especially his over-all consistency. I feel that Tsonga could really benefit from having an actual coach. Also, Tsonga seems to at times be very emotionally.. inconsistent. The smallest thing can get him down and completely change his whole game.
On top of everything else, the crowd is VERY pro-Murray for this match. I feel like that will really weaken Tsonga mentally.
As for the final, I have faith in Andy. The crowd will be split because even though they do love Andy, Federer is a favorite, especially at here at Wimbledon. But Andy is WAY over-due to win his first grand slam and if he won here at Wimbledon it would mean so, so much more to him (sentimentally) simply because he is winning it at “home”. Also, he will be the first British man to win a Wimbledon title since 1938, so breaking that bad streak doesnt hurt either :)
