I thought I could start this thread:p
I think Andy improved alot in the past weeks! He still needs to get fitter and gain weight, I think 68 KG is not enough! He needs to get strong legs and a stron arm, then he'll have more speed on his shots and will get more balls.
He needs to work on this! I hope I'll see him stronger than ever:)

I think he's got good speed on his arms, his passing shots are pretty good from what i've seen

I dont think his arms need too much building up, I'd say the legs are a bigger problem. Obviously the first serve % needs to come up but thats probably a technical thing rather than tired arms as he hasn't been serving high %ages at any point of any match. The double faults I agree are a problem, he was serving them at crucial times and considering he doesn't really go for his 2nd serve too much he shouldn't be serving as many as he has.

Everyone mentions Murray's fitness as a problem and yes it is but just remember it was only this year that Nadal suffered fitness problems against Federer at indian wells i think it was? i can't really remember now but the main thing is he blew a 2 set lead and looked really tired in the 4th and 5th sets

It was in the NASDAQ100 Open Final
It wasn't Nadal who played well, it was Federer who played bad. Nadal just played like crap in the last 2 sets. Some bad calls for Nadal in the 3rd, otherwise he would have won it for sure.

Andy can go 3:30 after 3:45 he gets cramps, the fitness is about 60%
He just needs to gain muscels like Hewitt did, 5-9 kilos, a must then he would be about 75KG. This would be help, his groundstrokes would getting harder, his serve would be harder, he could serve 140mph with out a doubt. What do you all think, will he grow more? I think he'll get 187cm...

I agree. I think he needs to sort it out, you don't see many other players with cramp. But he's only 18 and Petch can help him, he'll work wonders, i have every faith in Petch! :) :D

:lol: Cowan is funny. I think Petch prefers Bailey to be honest, they might have a little thing going on :eek: I do like Petch though, always makes me laugh and was very nice when I met him at Wimby. Seems like he's done a pretty good job with Andy already too.
