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:
-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
