Best Andy quote in 2005
"I’ve won five titles this year now, which isn’t bad for a terrible year, as people keep saying. Of course I would trade five titles for one Grand Slam but that’s not the way it works."
Besides Federer, who will Andy's nemesis be for 2006?
Slam you thought Andy would win in 2005
AO and/or USO, but I really wanted him to win Wimbledon
Slam you think Andy will win in 2006
But, I still want that Wimbledon title
Does Andy need a girlfriend for 2006?
[b]Should Andy fire Dean and get a new coach?[b]
No - I think Dean has done a great job, in terms of improving his physical fitness, and improving several aspects of his game. Moreover, most loses are due to some malfunction in his head
So, can't really blame Dean for those...
What improvements have you noticed to Andy’s game?
In spells, backhand, volley, net-game
What does Andy still need to work on for 2006?
Consistency in ALL aspects of the game (and that includes confidence), return
Blue polo-t (as spotted @ Queen's) with white shorts
Didn't really like the reebok gear from earlier this year
Those pretty meaningless, but funny Lexus ads
AMEX Mojo ad
Would you say that 2005 was better, worse, or the same as his 2004 year?
More or less the same -- a good year, but not a great one...
How would you grade Andy overall for 2005?
B -- there's a lot of room for improvement
