His brothers and mother absolutely enjoy his charity and Davis Cup appearances. They get to participate; sometimes they get the media's profuse praise (Andy got ridicule).
They were invited to his activities with no restrictions by Andy, obviously. It interfered with his game and attitude during Federer's success years.
They avoid thinking about breaking a rule (tennis) and U.S. Law (Divorce Court).
John attempted to coach Andy to find out what could happen as the coach, not because he wanted Andy's best tennis, fitness and mind strength. He laughed on TV when Andy barely moved in the Wimbledon quarterfinal and hated to fight again with Federer.
John's tennis academy is hardly a success
Lawrence didn't spend time with his daughter but his mother had his daughter at Andy's Cincinnati match.
His schedule is all about exhibitions and sudden plane trips to tournaments because he feels guilty. Thanks to Agassi and his mom's incessant reminder "Don't regret life without charity".
Blake always plays Davis C., not because he wins, but because he's awarded for Andy's work and wins. Do you believe Captain McEnroe gives much value to Andy's abilities? He wasn't even sure that Andy's fitness did anything for his footwork and confidence.
Andy failures against Sampras, Agassi, Hewitt, Federer, Djokovic, Murray, Gasquet, Ferrer, Kohlshreiber, Blake, Gonzalez, etc. made him feel no anger. He told Chris Russo "tennis is more than talent. Roddick has the SERVE. He would have 1 more Slam if Federer wasn't here...." I didn't realize that no one else was Andy's opponent. There were no quitting in Australia, French Open, mental quitting, injury, no awful line calls, and no lethally bad coaching!?
John Mc and Tracy Austin verbally excreted:
Andy should admit he couldn't ever have Djokovic's talent and weapons. And Andy is supposedly working extremely hard with nothing but a serve and many players have no problem surpassing Andy's One other shot: Forehand
Well, at least Regis Philbin, Agassi...& Sampras agree with them. Cry for them...
