Are you interested in Jamie's progress?

All good points, but i still think youre massively underplaying the "it must suck to be in your brothers shadow" part.

I think Jamie is fundementally a nice guy who is strugging largely because of the stated reason. He'll come to terms with it. Andy himself has learned how to handle himself a hell of a lot better than he used to.

I don't think I'm underplaying it. I mean, everything is relative. There's no doubt it bothers him that he was once the number 3 junior in the world and is now a doubles specialist. The thing is, it seems to bother Andy more than it does Jamie. Andy has always been critical of what happened to Jamie's career because he stayed in Britain. I've never once heard Jamie mention it, but Andy seemingly holds a grudge over it.

Oh I think it bothers Jamie so much more, but it really wouldnt be his place to say.

Really try to put yourself in his head. I admit it probably just a phase but im convinced its the reason Jamie has a been a bit 'off' lately.

I don't get it. Was there another time when Andy pulled out besides Argentina when Jamie criticised him?

Nope, he didn't pull out. Andy mentions it in his book. He was down to play a dead rubber (think it was 2006 or possibly 2007) and was thinking about not playing it because, well, it was a dead rubber. Jamie text him and called him a disgrace etc. I think he ended up playing anyway.

The Argentina tie was different. He didn't turn up for the tie, nevermind merely thinking about not playing a dead rubber.

Ah, I see. Smile
But was Jamie ever ranked 3rd in juniors? I find that hard to believe.

Under 12s. If I recall right, only Gasquet and Nadal were ahead of him.

Wow! It now makes more sense to me what Andy says that the LTA wrecked him.
