Anymore proofs needed that this coach will not get the best out of Andy, but probably the worst?
Andys preparation was probably great, his attitude was great (except a little lack of confidence, maybe), but the quality of his game was simply not there. How can Goldfine seriously say, Andy was more aggressive
Approaching the net with some poor approach shots is not aggressive, it´s stupid
Of course, now as Baghdatis has reached the final, his loss looks less worse and this will probably make Andy and his coach feel confirmed, but imo Baghdatis was not been playing like from another planet. He was beatable, but Roddick was completely helpless against a player that has good groundstrokes (forehand and backhand) and good sense for the game, and that should be a disturbing sign for the former world number 1 and GS-champion.
Sure you can have a day, where you can´t find your game, but Andy wasn´t playing much worse than he usually plays. In his press conference after the match there was no selfcritical word from him, just a ` my opponent played an extremely good match today, I would´ve probably beaten most other players today`
Andy seems to not have a good understanding for the game, so he easily believes, what coaches tell him. His potential is despitely great, so it´s really a shame
I know it´s easy for us to tell him what he should do, but it´s obvious that he needs to change something.
