You know, I was shell-shocked at how many times I saw Andy stand there, apparently flat-footed...only to have Marcos crack a winner against him. Til I saw Marcos to the same thing to Nalby. Baggy must be really good at 'holding' the ball til the last possible moment...and is equally as good (or fearless) at picking on either side (FH or BH) of his opponent.

My vs.com buddy had mentioned in an email yesterday that there might be a surprise entry in the Delray tournament, but I had no clue what he was talking about...now I know

Sure, definitely. But Andy still put in a horrible mental performance in that match. He gave up pretty early on (many of us knew as soon as he got broken in the third set that he was a goner, from his horrific body language), and his shots were landing mid-court. His backhand was so horrible it was making me cringe at how it looped and puffed around the court. It was just AWFUL. If he got some real confidence and momentum and was hitting through his shots again, he won't lose matches the way he lost that one - you'll have to outplay him to beat him, like it used to be, and his weaknesses wouldn't be nearly the liabilities they are now. and god almighty, he needs to stop doublefaulting on break point!

Is doing this going to help? I don't know. I don't see what good crushing a few guys outside the top 150 will do for him, but if he wants matches he wants matches. I hope it doesn't blow up in his face or whatever somehow.

because of other things the past couple days, I've been thinking I live in the twilight zone, but after this I am now convinced I am there! oh Andy if you don't make the draw (why does that thought even cross my mind )

No doubt, Andy's taking a big risk in doing this. That he's willing to take this kind of risk says alot about his overal mind set. It's reminiscent of this wild kid I heard of a few years ago that played a tenacious and brutally passionate game and always just went for it. Although he might not be playing like that at the moment, if he's starting to think that way, there is hope for him yet.

The mental issues he has on the court are a big problem. However, I believe there is little chance Roddick will get outside help in this area any time soon. He is too proud, in his mind it is a sign of weakness that he is not prepared to have exposed on a public basis at this time.As warmy mentioned, the best chance to confront this is by hiring a coach who is strong in this area. This is a field that Godlfine has not been strong at going back to his days as coach of Martin. Todd was a really good guy but nobody on the ATP tour choked in bigger moments than Todd.The '96 semi's at Wimbledon against Washington.....the '99 U.S. Open finals to Agassi etc.....

You know, in re-thinking this, it might not be bad.

Sometimes you've got to start back at the beginning. Square one. Remember what it was like when you were just starting out. Get the passion back.

yeah, well... I've heard stories that they don't talk much anymore...

Anyway, I think this may turn out to be a wise move for Andy, but if he makes it through qualies, and to the SF or Final, then plays DC, I have to wonder which of the 3 tournaments in February he will pull out of (and it better not be San Jose!!!!! )
