Exclamation Andy's fitness

I thought I could start this thread
I think Andy improved alot in the past weeks! He still needs to get fitter and gain weight, I think 68 KG is not enough! He needs to get strong legs and a stron arm, then he'll have more speed on his shots and will get more balls.
He needs to work on this! I hope I'll see him stronger than ever

Re: Andy's fitness

I think he's got good speed on his arms, his passing shots are pretty good from what i've seen

Re: Andy's fitness

And don't forget to mention the need to improve on 1st serve %. Hopefully Mark Petchey will be working on this.

Re: Andy's fitness

I dont think his arms need too much building up, I'd say the legs are a bigger problem. Obviously the first serve % needs to come up but thats probably a technical thing rather than tired arms as he hasn't been serving high %ages at any point of any match. The double faults I agree are a problem, he was serving them at crucial times and considering he doesn't really go for his 2nd serve too much he shouldn't be serving as many as he has.

Re: Andy's fitness

Everyone mentions Murray's fitness as a problem and yes it is but just remember it was only this year that Nadal suffered fitness problems against Federer at indian wells i think it was? i can't really remember now but the main thing is he blew a 2 set lead and looked really tired in the 4th and 5th sets

Re: Andy's fitness

It was in the NASDAQ100 Open Final
It wasn't Nadal who played well, it was Federer who played bad. Nadal just played like crap in the last 2 sets. Some bad calls for Nadal in the 3rd, otherwise he would have won it for sure.

Andy can go 3:30 after 3:45 he gets cramps, the fitness is about 60%
He just needs to gain muscels like Hewitt did, 5-9 kilos, a must then he would be about 75KG. This would be help, his groundstrokes would getting harder, his serve would be harder, he could serve 140mph with out a doubt. What do you all think, will he grow more? I think he'll get 187cm...

I agree. I think he needs to sort it out, you don't see many other players with cramp. But he's only 18 and Petch can help him, he'll work wonders, i have every faith in Petch!
