Hey now -

Don't be dissapointed in him!

How can you say his head isn't there? He won two epic matches in a row, and just happened to lose to a trickey player today.

Maybe there wasnt' enough gas in the tank, maybe it wouldnt' have mattered anyhow -

What does matter is that somebody who gutted out those two matches before like he does, doesn't have "head problems"

Rainer is a great counterpuncher and has great precision. Also brings back nearly every serve. He beat Philippoussis something like 6-1, 6-2 in Sydney and made it to the finals giving JCF a tough time. He also played very well against Krajicek, Blake and Nalbandian. So it's not an accident that he beat Andy. Tennis is not all about VISIBLE weapons. Anyways neither Andy nor Rainer will have a chance against Andre. :( Last time Andre played Andy he beat him like 6-3, 6-1 or something. :rolleyes:

Did you watch the match? I certainly did.
He did a very good job, his best. After two five sets matches and with injury, he played incredible. He didn't give up hope. He was trying all the time.

The mistakes that costed his match were probably
1 He didn't get as much first serve in as before.
2 He made more unforced errors(injury?)

Please, don't blame him for the lost. He did surprisingly well in the whole tourment. I appreciate all his effort to stay in the tourment.

Sorry, didn't mean to offend anyone. Gee, sorry, I'm getting emotional.:sad: :sad: :sad:
Chrisie can't stay calm today.

Another bright side -

Andy has made the QF two years in a row at the USO, and he finally made his first semi at a slam he had never done well at.

You HAVE to think that bodes well for the rest of his year.

To boot has a serious chance of being ranked 4th by Roland Garros (if not in say, a month).

Becca, I mean, if anyone doesn't agree with me, they may find my words unpleasant. I always try to keep calm, but now my heart is taking control, I may say something too emotional.

He played well considering he had two long matches previous to this, and also had a wrist injury, which affected his play as well. Rainer also played a great match. It was nothing to do with Andys head or whateevr you think.

Interesting that after his fourth-round win, they asked Blake in the press conference how he would tell people in America who the hell Schuettler was. Diplomatic as ever, he replied that he was a great player and that a lot more people in the U.S. should know who he is.

I guess after today, they certainly will, and hopefully they'll realise that Roddick didn't lose it in a match against a guaranteed pigeon - Schuettler has already proved he's anything but that.

Andy did just fine. He gave it his all...and fell a lil short in the semis. Expect more from him throughout the rest of the year. :)

That's what happens when Safin doesn't play.

I suppose that if Andy is injured sometime in the next little while, and somebody like Pea laughs because his rankings dips - you'll be cool with that?
