You're not the only one wanting to smack common sense into Andy. lmao
Let's care about him winning big events more than reaching
#1. Ferrero can't hold onto it for long 'cuz
he defends more points.
Andy - had worst results when he was
unhealthy or with poor strategy
After losing to Schuttler (Andy wasn't exactly in-form), he's not making the same mistake again
His 5 hour AO match & ankle prob made me
upset, for sure.
Hmm, Andy's wanting to kiss-ass his opponents to please them is disgusting enough (stating he doesn't do more than bang the ball- well, he kept that attitude in Basel)
Why's he so politically correct? LOL
I saw his Queens match-he broke Andre's serve 3 times- but with the stupid 6, 7 point set rule,
that's not enough to win in 2 sets even though he disguised
his shots cleverly. Andre had only the tiebreak to
rescue him from a 6-1, 7-6 loss. Andre cussed up
a storm, said he was willing himself to lose...puhleeze.
Andy withdrew from
Thailand/Japan, claiming he needed a long recovery.
AHEM, he didn't worry about his leg when he jumped up & down & practiced in California.
Andy should've played in Tokyo just in case he'd lose early in Madrid.
I watched his clay matches, & the weaknesses
are his patience & inconsistency due to bad training. When he's not following his game plan, he hurries serves, keeps leaving the court
open, won't make
aggressive volleys & drop shots. Yet, he
proved himself in Austria,
Rome last year & Houston when he mixed up
his shots a lot-was successful because of his good groundstrokes-not just serves.
It's not going to be terrible next
year in RG. I still think clay is easier for him than grass.
Ferrero -had more comfortable draws in Madrid & French Open (lost on clay easily this year too), not consistent on grass/hardcourt (Wimbledon, Indian Wells, Miami, Montreal, Cincinnati), his serve needs to be good to win (Calleri, Zabaleta, Horna beat easily him on clay)
(He played a lot & injured easily)
Federer- won Marseille, Rotterdam, Dubai, Halle & Wimbledon against no top players (imo, grass's Andy's worst surface ,
unlike what the media said), hot/cold on hardcourt,
shaky when he forces his shots too much
(Cincinnati, Rome, RG, U. S. Open), chokes away big leads (Davis Cup, Miami)
determined, no one can stop him--did
any Andy fan expect much (#10) before he
for #1? At least I knew he'd get a slam this year.
Bitter people here, including those who lost money betting against him, went on a tirade, whining!
