I don't buy that at all. Andy was a lot more immature with Tarik and his anger and frustration got to him a lot more under Tarik and cost him matches. I've read several places that since he's just as passionate and fiery as Andy that he didn't help him in that department at all. Andy seems a whole lot more relaxed under Brad than Tarik. Just because he's not as volatile on court doesn't mean he's not having as much fun. and if you've ever seen them practice, you'd see that they have a great time together and it's a very fun environment from what I myself have observed. now I'm not saying I give Brad the credit for this, because it happened to coincide with Andy simply getting older and perhaps maturing and calming down on his own. but yea, I'd say Andy had a whole lot of fun when he won the USO and finished last year at #1
and I don't know if that would've happened had he kept Tarik around.
As for the poll... gee I can't imagine what the result is going to be. Logic would suggest, though, that since Andy has far less talent than Marat that Brad has been a more effective coach?
