Congrats to Jamie and Andre, that's fantastic news. Great to see Jamie on the up again. Well done lads.
I honestly think the issue with Toronto this year was that Andy was tired, more than anything, and went to Cincy in the same state.
I think he's managed himself after the USO a bit better, had some time to enjoy what he's done and get used to it, which wasn't so after the Olympics.
Didn't Andy pick up his injury in Paris last year? I know that by the time the WTF came around he clearly wasn't right. It was disappointing that he had to pull out, but better that than make the situation worse.
Unless I'm being thick, Andy didn't play Bangkok this year. Wasn't it too soon after the USO for him? That leaves him with Tokyo and Shanghai, and then of course the WTF. I suppose he could pull out of the doubles in Tokyo, but would he want to? It does seem to benefit him as well. One of the benefits, it seems to me, apart from his net play, is that he can't get dragged in to doing media stuff when he is playing. It certainly worked well for him at the Olympics.
Of course, Andy does need to manage himself, and I'm sure he's talked to Lendl about it, but my feeling is that if he wasn't fit, or at least sure he could do it, he wouldn't.
