Who are these commentators!!! I saw last 2 games when I got up this morning and Sky are crrrently showing highlights . They were discussing Andy's body langage and the way he mtters - and basically is a perfectionist. One has just wondere how good Andy wold really be if he had better body language!!!!!!!
I know sometimes it has possibly affected a match - but i doubt that much - but affect how good a player he is? Hmm!
I've often wondered why he gets singled out more for his body language than every other tennis player, especially when you consider that not one of them has ever played with a huge grin plastered all over their face, and like to do cartwheels affter winning every point.
That being said, from reading lots about sports psychology there are 2 schools of thought about competitive players. There are those that hate to lose (Murray) and those who love to win, now i would put Federer in the latter camp, and goes a long way to explain his success, he is motivated by his own ego to be the last man standing holding the trophy and can be very pragmatic over a defeat, whereas Andy hates losing and has in the past gone through spells of abject dissapointment when losing like he did after he lost the AO 11 final for instance.
