Stan lost to a poor Robredo.
So?

welcome Hello you will get used to us. It's not so much that we are negative (most of us), more that we have an inbuilt panic button that sets itself off when Andy's tournament draws appear. We seem to be pre programmed to fear the worst whilst also hoping for the best. Alas it appears to be incurable but we support each other through it - and it makes the victories all the sweeter. You can help us keep our glasses half full!

Less of the 'we' lol. Some of us don't panic. Some of us are eternal optimists, and Andy has proved us right a lot lately lol.

I'll be a glass half full girl until I need to be. Then, if the worst should happen, and it probably won't, I'll be a glass completely empty girl, but only because I'll need a drink to get over it lol.

I think Andy could surprise us all on the clay this year. I hope so.

I don't panic either , my glass is generally 3/4 full at least, was just trying to somehow generalise (impossible, don't know why I tried). Don't think I worded it too well, I meant to suggest most of us were positive but I've re read it and don't think it comes across that way (tho am now reading it with glasses literally empty so may change my mind on that tomorrow lol). Here's to the red dirt and lots of weeks of Andy time.

Don't worry, Westie. We are all different, and that's what makes us a family.
I think you spoke for many of us quite eloquently.

When you've paid your long-life-ticket to board the MurrayCoaster, you just have to hang on tight and know that whatever happens there will be an end.

Sometimes you hang on until your knuckles go white, and other times you can put both hands up in the air.

At the end of the ride, you will usually have a racing heart, a huge grin on your face, and legs gone to jelly.

But if not.. there's another car just behind for the next ride which you will pay for and board. Willingly.  Very Happy

Hey guys, I am new here and would like to say why you guys have such little faith in Andy. Yeah I know clay isn't Andy best surface but why are people already writing him off because of his potential opponents. This is the guy who took Nadal to a third set in 2011 and almost beat Djokovic in Rome.

I don't know about you guys but I have a gut feeling about this clay season. C'mon Andy yay

Forgot my manners, sorry rob92. A very warm welcome to MW.

Like everyone else here, I also hope for a successful clay season for our boy... but this ain't the first MW Rodeo.

Hope you stick around, because through thick and through thin we will all make it through together.  highfive

Welcome rob 92, it is good to have someone else wondering why Andy is being written off before the Tournament has begun, last year he was struggling with his back. This year he's been working on his clay game with Lendl and Moya so I'm sure we will see a more confident ANDY on clay. He has always said it takes him time to get used to the conditions, this time he will be ready from the get go.

Actually I think you spoke very well Westie!I mean,yes,you are right-it is a bit impossible to generalise the wide range of personalities and outlooks on here,but when I read it I thought you worded it very well indeed.You generalised us pretty much as well as we can be generalised I think!

welcome from me too Rob92 - great to have another positive fan on board the roller coaster.  But I agree with westie. What you're reading isn't the negativity than can sometimes infect MW [if you've not come across that you ain't seen nothing yet I fear!] but a kind of superstitious caution that prevents some of us (and not speaking for all of course) getting carried away.    And it does feel like Andy is still feeling his way back into his top form [all the more credit that he's won 2 titles this year and is 2nd in race] so I can't really breathe easily until I see how he is adapting to the clay this year.  Actually tbh I never really breathe easily until the last point is played of any single match (with a few rare exceptions when Andy is totally on song like against Roddick at Queens).

They normally hate everyone, but sometimes a player can sneak through the net, if they are distracted by hating someone else more.  It's such a depressing place, with such a skewed view of the world.

I'm excited about the clay season, but also a bit nervy.  Every sensible part of my body is telling me that he's bound to do better than last year, and a good chance of doing well, but there is still a part of me that's worried something will go wrong.  Things can go wrong for Andy on surfaces he does like, so I have given myself advanced warning not to read too much into it if that does happen! lol  hug
