    Pat Cash won Wimbledon in 1987, Lleyton Hewitt did it in 2002, who knows what will happen in 2014?

    Would love him to go all the way, but after that great effort, I feel he may get beaten in the quarters. I hope I'm wrong.

    Having said that, I believe there are future finals in the not too distant future. Who knows, we could finally have another Australian, win the Australian Open in six months.

    His ability and motivation have progressed him to this stage of the competition and his attitude will take him all the way. He has my support.....

    Nick's win last night was the same as Rafa beating Federra years ago, and Rafa went on, and on, and on.
    I reckon Nick will go on, and on, and on.

    Wish him all the very best. Done brilliantly already. Sock it to them Nicko!!
    Now I think the press and all and sundry should back off a bit and allow him to do what he's gotta do.

    He was ranked at 144 before he played at Wimbledon, lets hope he just goes on with his natural game and keeps on keeping on.
