To be honest, I was disappointed with this kind of behaviour because I thought the Muscovites have a bit more class than that. But nothing you can do about that, Andreev will have to pay his debt at some time too.
Well now that I know more about what happenned,I can see why he lost.First everyone or almost was against him.You know the more I get to know him,the more I see that he does appreciate to have people,fans in his corner,cheering for him.He DOES need the support.I know that most people see him as a strong person,he is but he is sensitive too and if he saw that it was him vs the world,he had no support except for thomas well,he didn,t fight.I remember,in indianapolis,it was so hot,I went to his single match and then we went for coffee and then I was like..are you joking you have another match tonight? yes it was in doubles.He was all nice,smiling pLEASE please you have to come,you have to be there,for me,it is against Americans and everyone else will be cheering for them..please.Of course,I did go.He needs the support,he needs to hear his fans cheer for him.And yes Dani ,if Andreev did that to him..one day,he,ll pay.Kiefer has always revenge on his mind when he loses a match...remember this year,clement and only this week,Mayer..he won.I hope that he,ll have fans in madrid.
