Watching these two matches I think Lendl has to address two main problems with Andy's game: second serve of course, but also that forehand down the line. It's weak.
I noticed that whippersnapper Harrison targeting it with some success but so did E R-V. Others will follow.
I'm assuming it's nothing to do with power so it must be down to technique, am I imagining it or does he kind of roll it?
Ivan had an amazing forehand so I do hope he can help fix this. I now see it as a worse problem than second serve.
Any thoughts...from Murray fans only, that is!
This is in line what experts say about Andys forehand- its good, but room for improvement to make it a bigger weapon, particularly against the top 3; which is the last frontier for Andy.
Employing a flatter forehand would enable him to go for bigger shots and more winners.
That, and (often said) more offensive play from the start, early in rallys.
Clearly Andy has to make some small adjustments to his already brilliant weapons arsenal to lift that GS trophy.
May take Lendl and Andy some time to do that. I'm sure they wont try to make significant changes during the AO.
