Some people are just exceedingly good at blow jobs.

Agree. Fire Larry hire Tangy as the new coach.

How depressing is that? Just look at that list of players.

Yes. This. All of it. Exactly.

To add insult to injury, Monfils just lost to Kubot. I just can't right now. Andy lost a great opportunity. I agree that he just needs to step back and reasses his game and career.

Re: The "...wow" thread

you have said it all rather nicely; I think his heart and head and body are elsewhere and he just can't get it done. All the little things and nigglies are taking a toll and that's that for me.

Re: The "...wow" thread

I could really see him retiring before he wins another slam and making one big comeback run to win one at Wimbledon or something.

Literally getting his head out of the game maybe the only thing that may help.
He has maintained enough consistency overall to settle for good, which it has been- good.
We all know (i think) and he does too, it could be one step better!
Consistently.
Ugh.

He can hire and fire as many people as he wants, it means nothing if he doesn't listen to any of them. Dean, John, Jimmy, Brad, Larry, I really doubt they've all told him very much different stuff. It seems obvious to the whole tennis world what Andy needs to do and he doesn't do it when it matters. He hasn't come back from 0-2 sets since the USO Semi in 2003 which i think for a great fighter like him is really bad. He hasn't been mentally the same for a long time now, this is nothing new he's just having more physical problems on top of it making it all the worse.

Re: The "...wow" thread

Yea, it's very disappointing. Seeing how he played the last match and with the great results he had last year...I still believe he's got another great run left in him. We'll just have to see. I disagree with Andy though, the year he made the Wimbly final he made the semis of AO, had a good by his standards clay season and then the finals of Wimbly after pulling out of Queens with a tweaked ankle. So if he can stay healthy and post some solid results in the HC season...it's definitely possible. As of right now though he's not a top 10 player.

Re: The "...wow" thread

i saw [part of] his presser that was shown on espn. nothing out of the ordinary, really -- disappointed (ofc), gave all the credit to feli, got a bit testy with a couple of the questions and how they were worded, but it was nice to see him still make a few jokes in between and even smile/laugh near the end [of what they aired].

Like I said.

The sad thing is I wish I could be surprised. Onyx I think you are right. He can't stay healthy long enough to build any confidence and momentum and even when he says he's healthy physically his head is gone more than ever.
