Do you blame them? Andy loves to bite their heads off
Don't worry guys.
Andy is obviously in a slump right now. I would be more concerned if he were playing *well* but still lost to the likes of Benneteau.
Ironically, the fact that Andy's playing so badly gives me some hope. I mean, there's nowhere to go but up now, right? His team is kind of in a mess, he doesn't have a real coach right now, he seems a bit lost as to what to do. Very disorganized, and I think he's suffering from too many cooks in the kitchen, so to speak. Getting too much of an earful from too many people and that is confusing him out on the court. Instead of playing on instinct, he now may be thinking too much out there, and then he ends up confusing himself even more. Does that make sense?
Cheer up, ducklings. This slump won't last forever. And when he finally gets his act together, his successes will be even more sweet.
