Cowan is funny. I think Petch prefers Bailey to be honest, they might have a little thing going on I do like Petch though, always makes me laugh and was very nice when I met him at Wimby. Seems like he's done a pretty good job with Andy already too.

Re: Andy's fitness

Well, speaking as a decrepit 42 year old now, I remember when I was in my late teens I used to get terrible leg cramps and I wasn't playing a tenth as much as Andy. Once I stopped growing height-wise, probably about 20, the problem never came back. I remember being told it was nothing to do with fitness but to do with with muscle tissue just physically growing and putting too big a strain on it when it was. I was also told it depends on the individual's physiology, so one person can get cramps when another doesn't.

In a nutshell, he should grow out of the cramps soon. The Pavel match showed he can go the distance if he doesn't cramp up.

Re: Andy's fitness

Thanks Dashers! That at least has given me lots of hope that Andy will grow out of them and be able to go all the way and beat guys like Clement when he stops growing.

Re: Andy's fitness

According to Petchey, Andy is going to head to France shortly to get some tests done to see why he's cramping a lot. He said Pat Rafter had a similar problem when he was 18/19 and he seemed to sort it out ok. He said he was hoping to find a resolution to the problem soon.
