It's hard to know - we don't get the full press conferences at these smaller tourneys. I'd think that if he were asked such a provocative question and if he actually answered it that the press would likely include something like that in their articles about the match, so one can probably assume he hasn't been asked anything so direct. But it's possible he may have been, I suppose.

Considering how catty Andy can be with them, it wouldn't be surprising if most journalists wouldn't want to ask him a question like "WTF IS GOING ON WITH YOU AND WHERE HAS YOUR GAME GONE" right after a loss.

Imagine if Bud asked it... Andy would probably jump over the table thing and wring his neck...
I don't think questions like that will be coming from the press anytime soon...

Actually I think Bud could be one of the few who COULD get away with it. Charlie Bricker, Joel Drucker, maybe Matt Cronin are sme others. I mean, I was exaggerating. But I think the press could address the issue o the fact that he himself said he'd be more aggressive this year but hadn't. HE himself introduced that to the media at the start of the season, so he opened himself up to questions about that. So it'd be nice to see him asked about that

Um Nat do I even wnana know what you did?

Do you blame them? Andy loves to bite their heads off

Don't worry guys. Andy is obviously in a slump right now. I would be more concerned if he were playing *well* but still lost to the likes of Benneteau.

Ironically, the fact that Andy's playing so badly gives me some hope. I mean, there's nowhere to go but up now, right? His team is kind of in a mess, he doesn't have a real coach right now, he seems a bit lost as to what to do. Very disorganized, and I think he's suffering from too many cooks in the kitchen, so to speak. Getting too much of an earful from too many people and that is confusing him out on the court. Instead of playing on instinct, he now may be thinking too much out there, and then he ends up confusing himself even more. Does that make sense?

Cheer up, ducklings. This slump won't last forever. And when he finally gets his act together, his successes will be even more sweet.

Makes perfect sense and I agree
