I think winning DC would mean more to him than a masters shield or beating roger. and quite frankly, i think it's a more realistic goal at this point
More realistic?! It's very realistic that he could beat Roger on a fast surface like the indoors. Also with draws like last years Paris AMS had...pshhhh...he's had harder draws at tier 2 events.

Winning DC would be great, but it's more for his pride and helping tennis in the US...than it is for his career. Although I suppose Andy might feel a bit more accomplished after it. Even South Africa won a DC title...

It's important because it's important to him. And that in itself would be pretty huge. Besides winning wimbledon, winning DC is like the major goal left in his career. I think if you'd ask Andy, he'd say he wouldn't care about beating roger or winning an indoor masters title, he wants to win DC, and I want to see him win it

No no, I just meant that he did that last year. He's not on the entry list for Vienna this year which to me does indeed show more ambition to play both Madrid and Paris. He'll almost certainly try to play Lyon too.

Agreed, and it's a great opportunity to gain ranking points even after losing to Federer. If it was up to me, he'd skip Bangkok and go straight to Japan. I just hope he doesn't try to play both.

Well I'm sure if there was a choice he'd pick DC but off course it doesn't work that way. He could well easily win or lose both.

Re: Andy's listening to John Mayer, he's going to rock the Great Indoors.

Officially this is Andy's schedule right now:

Davis Cup SF
Bangkok
Tokyo
Madrid
Lyon
Paris
TMC

There's no way he'll play all those events. I think it's mostly just in case he loses early in one or two of them then he has a chance to redeem himself the following week. If it was up to me he would reduce it to this:

Davis Cup SF
Tokyo
Madrid
Paris
TMC

But knowing Andy it will probably be more like this:

Davis Cup SF
Bangkok *get injured*
*go home and chill out for a few weeks*
TMC (maybe)

And then hopefully:

Davis Cup Final *fingers crossed*

Re: Andy's listening to John Mayer, he's going to rock the Great Indoors.

oh god nick you are right

I don't know why he ever signed up for Bangkok again, seriously. Didn't he learn anything from a couple years ago?!? I wish he'd just pull out. And why play Tokyo? It's outdoors, totally useless. Whatever, I tried to stop understanding his scheduling decisions a long time ago LOL

Re: Andy's listening to John Mayer, he's going to rock the Great Indoors.

I know but.. it's odd for him to be messing with his schedule and packing this ridiculously busy fall season like he never has before. he's gotten hurt each of the last 3 falls. It's stupid and he doesn't need the money. I just don't understand why, he's generally been pretty good about putting his body first and not playing schedules like that especially in the fall at the end of the tough season. it's just bizarre to change it up now

Well, like I said, it's probably just in case he loses early in one of them, or something. In the unlikely event that the Davis Cup is decided in two days, he can get to Bangkok a day early and it won't be a problem. Off course if he loses in the first or second round there he'll have no problems playing Tokyo too.

I don't think he really believes that he'll play all of them.

Re: Andy's listening to John Mayer, he's going to rock the Great Indoors.

Well then I don't understand why he signed up. That's pissy of him and I hate when players do that

I agree it bugs me. All I can think is that he was either terribly indecisive or he knew he'd just get injured and pull out of 3 or so tourneys. Or maybe he was high on something and thought he could do it...?

He should play Paris, that's where everyone craps out he's got a real shot

I agree that Davis Cup is and should be priority, it's something he has been wanting for so long and it would do wonders for his mentality going into next year.

Unfortunately, Andy is always one of those people who craps out in Paris (no matter what surface)

Re: Andy's listening to John Mayer, he's going to rock the Great Indoors.

aw, not ALWAYS. He had a couple good runs there and some close matches, it's just at the end of the season and he seems to have gotten banged up the past few years just like most of the top guys really.

of course, he's going back to the US in the middle of all this so who the heck knows

wait, that event is on Oct 3. Tokyo starts Oct 1. He also has events in the US on Oct. 9, 10, and 14. So there's no WAY he's playing Tokyo. what the hell??? And he's not even on the Vienna entry list so I'm not sure why you put that up there Ryan. And he has his charity event the night before Madrid starts on Oct 15. oh andy. you will never cease to amaze us

So his schedule will be: Bangkok (maybe)..... bunch of charity events in the US ... Madrid (maybe), Lyon, Paris, Shanghai (maybe)

Yeah it wouldn't surprise me if he skipped Madrid and played only Lyon and Paris. He's never done well in Madrid and he probably thinks that Paris will have its usual weak field.
