Rod Laver was at the DC Tie on Friday and did the coin toss, he and Andy chatted a bit before it

I just hope he can find some one good, although he could do a Feds and have no coach, see how that works out.

He's been putting more weight on his shoulders, which caused his back to tighten up. He has to be 8-10 pounds lighter...so he can hit bh/serve/volley with great disguise/power. HE weighs 10 pounds more than some 6'3' players.
You can't have fast feet when you're dragging 195 pounds of muscles.

3 years ago, he didn't overcrowd his schedule. He could overpower people; his torso and arms were thinner and he leaned into his forehand. Opponents in 2003 didn't play their best and were injured too.

Andy has a tiring schedule, and you need great health to play well.

Major problems: Lack of match play+ and not that many hitting partners.

It could be the only way to get to Roger's nerves.

But seriously, Rod (he's a legend!) but he played tennis in such a different era that I don't know if he's capable of coaching a modern day player.

Actually, I think some tennis fundamentals haven't changed that much. And Laver wasn't a serve-volleyer exactly... he was more of an all-court player with a massive forehand. That seems to be what Andy has been trying to make his game into (although we all debate whether this is wise ).

Maybe he could take on more of a consultant role, like Tony Roche for Fed. (I'm fantasizing here... I have absolutely no idea if Rod would be interested!)

I use to joke about being the medical consultant for a player but .... honestly I don't think that it was nerves at DC. Ok off my soapbox now. I love Rod Laver's tennis. One of the reasons I started to play tennis so very very very long ago.

If anyone is interested check out tennis week- there is a nice article about Annacone and rumors in regard to Andy hiring him as a consultant. Now if this has already been posted I apologise I don't have the time to go back over all the threads and posts

Grass is Andy's best surface...but, if it was something that was more widely used/played on..on the tour, I think Andy would realize hc is his best surface.

Mr. "broccoli" Bracialli had no problem ripping powerful shots at Andy on grass.
Andy didn't even like grass. He said, "I suck on grass" in 2003.
Wow, the talent was there, but no real coach and little experience.
I mean, why win GSs when there are DC ties and exhibitions to lose at....?
