Hmm the interviews stink.
I guess he should just say "I don't know" instead of long obvious, vague stuff.
Maybe Captain Obvious should take his own advice and get a spine. http://menstennisforums.com/showpost...&postcount=190

I'm not saying it's that dire, but he can't stay away from ignorant, bored detractors.

The problems are:
-concentration
-not adjusting his movement because he doesn't have a rail thin body, small hands and feet
-it's not enough just to be "mentally ready"
-not training a long time in Europe
-had little experience as a child to make it easier as an adult

If he's in pain, don't continue on. Simple.

His body language is utterly laughable.
At least, lift the head up and take deep breaths.
I wonder why Brad isn't a psychiatrist.

He did learn something: value every minute of life & be alert at hotels.

He has only a few years to raise his level. To become a multiple slam champ, he can't be timid and unsure. He has to stay successful between now-at least 30.
He can't hope for success at 35 because in his past interview, he claimed he'd quit by then.

It's unbelievable that after breaking serve,
he'd do nothing to protect his own serve-getting broken 2 times to lose a set.
I can't believe the bad habits this year:
Going from a neutral position to almost throwing matches away.

Brad panicked in Miami, made him practice, but he's still negative recently.
Everytime he looks nervous and stalls like a statue on court,
I know he's gonna self-destruct.

He may not be sitting around, yet
it's just not acceptable to complain about the aches & pain
& about the schedule, since he knows he crams many
unnecessary events into a short period of time.

I saw his "whatever" attitude in the Canas match.
My assuming he won't win a few matches at Hamburg and FO isn't a stretch.
I'd be less annoyed if he could have a few more titles this year. Who wants to see him slip to #4-5?

WOW, I'm obvious & crazy.

Captain returns
----------------
6.10.2005 -

Talk about a fish out of water, Dr. Ivo Karlovic came into Queens with a 3-12 record and just beat the number 2 player in the world. Last week he made it to the finals of a grass challenger before losing to chopped Broccoli. With his monster serve I don’t know why he isn’t doing better on hard courts and indoors? As the toughest unseeded player in the draw, he will be a nightmare first round for anyone at Wimbledon.

Andy has an unbelievable opportunity to three peat this weekend at Queens. If Andy wins I believe he will get the number two seed at Wimbledon, which keeps him out of Federer’s half of the draw. Big match for Tatiana tomorrow. Her semifinal with Sharapova is rematch of last years Birmingham final. Maria is a on a 15 match grass court win streak, but has been below her usual form this week.

He did very little for him as a coach. Brad couldn't hit a ball over the net for Andy.
Nowadays, he's a patriotic Andy supporter.

6.13.2005 -

It was streaks are us this week for Andy, Roger, and Maria. Federer has now won 29 matches in a row on grass. Andy is 26-2 on the turf since 2003; both of those losses were to Federer at Wimbledon. Maria capturing Birmingham gave her, her 17th straight win on grass, as well as her third straight grass court title.

When I first turned pro the game had more serve and volley/grass court players than clay court specialist. Now I would say there are only a handful of serve and volley guys that aren’t seeded and that have an outside chance of getting deep into the draw- Dr Ivo, the Beast and Wayne Authors.

My guess is that the Wimbledon computer will come up with the following seedings for the men when they come out on Wednesday.

1. Federer
2. Roddick
3. Hewitt
4. Safin
5. Nadal
6. Henman

For some strange reason there’s no computer formula used for the women. (maybe b/c there aren't any British women they need to help? ) I don’t like that because it’s unfair. Justine Henin-Herdenne should be going in as a top 4 seed not seeded seventh.

Brad, Pat & John McEnroe = They cheer for Andy because he's American, not because they really appreciate his ability & personality.

They thought Brad did something miraculous and Brad & Pat were so sure that Andy would reach the Australian Open '04 semis.
Pat Mc read from his patriotic American script, "Andy will win US Open! The crowd and weather helps him!!!!"

It's because there are no real surface specialists in the WTA. Two reasons: 1) Lack of depth. The same players are making the QFs & SFs at all the slams. 2) Economic. While players like Puerta can continue playing the small clay events out of season & still make a decent living, the women can't. There are fewer total tournaments & few that are held out of season so no one can afford to be a specialist on one surface.
