Andy definitely does need to work on his fitness. In fairness he has played 6 straight weeks and played 3 matches on Saturday/Sunday to win the Challenger in Binghampton, flew to Ohio, played Monday against a player on a higher level in terms of experience/ranking and then playing Safin he started looking very tired. It was also a problem for him at Queens and Wimbledon though. I think in the off season he will work hard on the fitness and training. The rest of this season is gravy. Next year is when he has to prove he's not a good rookie but can rise through the tour and compete.
good points. except for comparing today's match to his performance against dent. taylor dent is the perfect match-up for murray. andy doesn't have the necessary physical attributes to beat top baseliners at the moment, so his best chance is against someone like dent.
in the off-season he needs some serious work in the gym!!
