Re: The "allez Andy, you cancancan do it" Lyon and Paris thread

The only players Andy's lost to who were in the top 50 at the time he played them were Federer (finals of Wimby and Cincy), Hewitt (SF of AO and IW) and Acasuso (who was ranked 49th at the time of RG). That's depressing. And if you feel bad for Andy, think of Andre and how great his year would be were it not for playing Fed 4 times this year (losing 1 QF, 2SF and 1F). Andre is 38-11 this year, and only 2 of those 11 losses were to players outside top 50. That's what's so frustrating about Andy is losing matches he SHOULD be winning because he IS the better player. It's one thing to lose in the finals to Fed, but to lose in R1 to players like Massu and Muller (who then get their ass kicked in the next round) just makes you want to
