Everyone before the match started was debating whether Mcgrath the boy without nerves could do his Best when he went on to the Centre court realising that everything depended on him. It was bound to be a big Strain but Mcgrath himself said he thought he could win. Most experts expected a Victory for Austi except the australians who thought that Mcgrath with reasonable Luck could do the trick.
