Good luck to Nole in Cinci - just relax and have some fun:-))

OK -time to move on to a new tournament I think Nole has nothing to defend in Cinci and I think that is good

He is obviously feeling some pressure at the moment and that is neither bad nor surprising in my opinion. He's a human being not a robot - and if we look around - almost all players have bad losses, bad tournaments and occasional crises of confidence - it's totally natural and not to be worried about at all in my opinion. Nole is young - he has time- and remember he has already achieved more in his short career than many other players have ever achieved. So let's all relax a bit, and cheer for him in Cinci, with no high expectations - hope he has fun and then we will do the same

Good luck! And let's hope he takes Rose's advice and has some fun out there! I think that's what's really missing.

Morning - equilibrium restored all round by now? (Shall stay well clear of the blether thread as it still seems strained but then I usually do.)

So, qualified optimism for Cincy but concerns remain. Feeling under pressure and not at top form he may have been but there's no denying Nole's game was made to appear one-dimensional and predictable at times by Andy. This is potentially significant and will not go unnoticed elsewhere.

If he can keep this week's form up Andy should be no 4 pretty soon and deservedly so - there's no one else in the top 10 with a better claim right now to my mind.

Morning dear Have to agree with you on the first paragraph I am doing the same

Also have to agree with you about Murray - I am not a fan of his personality or on-court demeanour at all - but he played damned well against Nole,- and, on that form, deserves a higher spot.

As for Nole - well - you know me - I am never that optimistic - if Nole was playing tennis against me, I'd still be scared of him losing And at least as a pessimist, you can always say "told you so" when you're proved right But- seriously- I think he just needs some time to get used to the rarified air "at the top" if you know what I mean, and that may take him the rest of this year to do, or maybe even longer Remember even Sampras had a gap in big wins between winning his first Grand Slam in the US in 1990, and his next in 1993 So all I hope is that he has fun, stays healthy, and enjoys playing tennis - the rest will follow.

Have a nice Sunday - and hope it's not so sticky/hot/disgustingly humid in your part of the UK as it is down here.

Well, I am fresh and new again, ready for endless optimism (concern remains, I agree with you). As for Andy - I think he can defeat Nadal, I though it might happen last night coz he is mentally stronger and stronger. I like the guy very much.

You? I mean, I guess Lee could do it, for example. But you, Rose?

Sorry, that role doesn't suit you. But you have even more important roles in this Forum, you know.

As for the optimism thing, well, I still believe in him and in his game, but I am taking it easy. The last 2 tournaments (Queens, Wimby and Toronto) I was so cnfidend, and we all know what happened. But this is just me playing defense, because I decided that I refuse to get so disappointed over all his losses. It's not healthy.

Ajde Nole! I still think you have been saving yourself for Cini - a tournament you never won!

I like Berdych. In fact I like 3 of 4 good friends - Murray, Berdych and Novak, course. Only Gasguet don't belong.

I'd love to see Novak-Tomas match. It's been a long time.

Raquel sweetie - I miss you so much This place is not the same without you. And I agree - the Miss Optimistic tag really doesn't suit me

Sharapower and Misha - I also like Berdych -would look forward to a match between him and Nole
