Yea, it's tough but it's ok. I'd pick ToJo over Sarge on a fast carpet surface. Andy beat ToJo without even facing BP just in Thailand, which would be a bit slower than Paris and Andy is way more rested and shouldn't have the jetlag problems, etc. Granted, he was playing so relaxed in Thailand, I hope he can do that again here. Then Gonzo - Andy should certainly be favored on carpet, Gonzo isn't known for his indoor prowess and Andy shouldn't be freaking out like he was at the Olympics. He should also be favored against David considering how badly David has played most of the year. He almost lost to Schuettler (and would have if Rainer hadn't choke-ied a bit) and we know Rainer's form... with Tim's form I wouldn't expect him to get to the semis and by then Andre could be pretty tired... so we'll see I wouldn't be surprised to see PimPim come through that quarter, actually. Another opportunity for revenge?
I'd like to see Andy just get to the QF of SF, keep a distance between him and Lleyton and just play a few matches. Obviously if he goes all the way that would be swell but as long as he's in good form and stays injury-free and all that, it'll be ok
I'm just happy he made the decision to play. Yea I'll nit-pick and say I wish he got there today or even tomorrow, I don't see why he's waiting til Sunday, but he probably won't even play til Weds. so I guess it's alright
