i think if andy learns how to use it properly though then it helps him.didnt seem to do john macenroe much harm did it
Depends on your temperament. Borg was the IceMan on court and, (I digress
) absolutely drop dead gorgeous to boot.
Off court he tried to be a control freakbut was not in control of many aspects of his life. Wife beating, drugs, bankruptcy. It sounds a bit like dear Georgie Best, doesn't it?
Mac was the opposite. He was fun loving and happy off court, on court he was a study in victimisation...it was his stab at one upmanship, and as he had phenomenal talent, it worked. I watched it live a couple of times...he genimely felt every linesman and umpire at Wimbledon (and I'm sure at other tournies, no Sky then, so didn't watch much) was in a conspiracy to defrayd him.
But Borg stole my heart...as only later did I realise what a complete male chauvenistic pig he was in real life.
I really would rather have the openess of Andy than the buttoned up, always say the right thing, Tim.
And this from a huge Henman supporter. I feel like I've committed adultery. But it's the way I feel.
