Yes this is the impression I've gotten from the couple of times I saw them practice in Houston earlier this year. They seem like friends, not coach-pupil. A very stark difference between people like Red and Tommy Haas and Andy and Brad. The latter two pairs, to me, had a better balance of friend/coach than Mardy and Kelly

Yes but.. he's had some favorable draws. His draws at both Wimby and USO weren't all that bad. He lost a very very winnable match (well obviously since he had match points and served for it) at Madrid this week, and the list goes on. Yes he's had some tough draws but the losses he has had have been ridonculous. He wanted to raise his ranking this year and it's just dropped all year long. Horrific.

Re: The Official "Mardy You Suck" Thread!!!

This year really has been a bad year for him considering what he did accomplish last year. Hopefully he does improve his ranking next year and potentially finish in the top ten if he works hard for it. At the same time, it depends on how much he really does want to be up there. It is all about wanting it so bad that you would do just about anything to get yourself where you want to be even if you may not have all the answers.

Re: Mardy's "Tough Love" Thread!

Ok, I'm changing the thread title again. This one's not quite as, eh, forceful as the other one was. And it's also more accurate: we prescribe tough love to Mardy, because we care so much and desperately want to see him succeed.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!
