Unhappy The exact moment I became worried about Andy

I am sick about this loss. I did not expect it. I really thought that Andy was playing so much better, making it all the way through the draw without dropping a set. And then there was the moment when I thought/knew that he was going to lose. They were 2-2 in the first set. Andy was serving. Nadal hit a beautiful crosscourt forehand during the opening point. 0-15. Then Andy double-faulted. 0-30. I started to worry. Then he double-faulted again. 0-40. Minor anxiety attack. Then he seemed slightly to bear down. But not enough. Nadal won the game. In hindsight I realised that I started worrying the exact moment that Nadal effortlessly returned that crosscourt topspin forehand. Damn him. I am so sick of Roddick losing when it is quite possible for him to win. I am of so sick of his tensing up and ruining his game. he could have beaten Nadal today. I am sure of that. He did not because, like me, he started to panic much too soon.

Re: The exact moment I became worried about Andy

Andy panicked and bitched out today. Whose fault is it that he panicked? His own. He had no chance of winning today. What kind of thread is this? Shoulda, woulda, coulda? Well we could say the same about anyone. You never know. The fact is that he lost today easily, ERGO, he had NO CHANCE

No wonder the timing of this thread was great...

I agree that Andy panicked but I disagree on the bitching part. Yes he panicked very soon. It was early in the first set when he had a full-blown anxiety attack. I disagree however that he had no chance. To say this is to deny the impact of performance anxiety. It's no different than a student's mind going completely blank when facing an exam. It does not mean that the person is not intelligent or that they could not have aced the exam. But anxiety interfered. It happens. Snap!
