Well, it's all in Andy's hands now. Guess we'll find out just how bad he wants it.

Re: Quest for #1

Andy won the first set 6-3

Too bad #1 may come over Tommy

Anyway, he's one set away...I'd rather him win the title, but I'll take this too

Re: Quest for #1

Wait...back the trolley up peeps lol.
*backs trolley up*

He's just gonna be back to #1 in the Champions Race next week, right? He's not gonna be #1 in the rankings right?

Either way, very cool that Andy won. Doesn't Andy need to win the title or something to get #1 in the Entry Rankings? If Andy gets #1 in rankings that would be awesome!

Re: Quest for #1

I like him without the hat. Can you believe the
timing, he's coming to Houston as a #1 home favorite?

Re: Quest for #1

Le Monde: What has changed for you since your victory at the USO?

Andy: That was huge. Until then, for many, I was just a kid getting too much attention. Today, it's evident I have more value in their eyes.

Le Monde: Just after this victory, why didn't you want to be asked if you were the future of American tennis?

Andy: That's not really what I wanted to say. But for a long time, people have been asking me that same question. I was just joking with the journalists.

Le Monde: You've regained the Champions Race lead after Basel, what's your state of mind today?

Andy: Things are very close between Federer, Ferrero and me. We all deserve it by virtue of winning a GS this year. Things will play out at the Masters Cup in Houston next month.

Le Monde: Are you the favorite?

Andy: I don't know, but I have nothing to lose. I can't worry about what Roger and Juan-Carlos were able to accomplish these past years. What matters to me is staying in control of what I'm trying to accomplish.

Le Monde: Are you going to change your game in the remaining 2 weeks of this season.

Andy: Things are going to be the same, be it at the beginning or the end of the season. I've been playing well lately, so I have no reason to change.

Le Monde: Some say you're more of a "showman" than a gentleman. What do you say to that?

Andy: It's their opinion. I know my values, my qualities. I can't worry about what others say in their interviews. I'm focused on what I have to do and I'm always courteous towards other players. Many other players also get angry on a tennis court.

Pete Sampras never said a word on the tennis court and he was called "boring". Now, it's the same people saying I'm doing too much. You can't please everyone. I'm no different from other players. Our common aim is to win as many matches as possible.

Le Monde: You've said that Brad Gilbert and yourself are "made of the same wood"?

Andy: We share a lot, even though we're not from the same area, and we're also very different in certain ways. We speak the same language, share the love for music and sport. We talk a lot about things that have nothing to do with tennis.

Le Monde: How would you describe your personality?

Andy: On the tennis court, I'm active and determined. Off the court, I'm relaxed and rather very lazy.

thanks for clearing it up - I wasn't positive of the figure, I just noticed it in passing in one of the articles I read.
