A bit off topic. Mr Smug again saying that Andy should stop winging about his scheduel. Not bad for someone who has not played a match for so many weeks. What's he moaning about he should keep his big mouth shut. Andy is not the only one to complain about too many matches so close together,
I agree that's a bit rich coming from him, given how few tournaments he plays these days anyway. Whistle  However, I don't think he and Andy are exactly buddies so I'm sure it'll be water off a duck's back.

What else whould you expect from Mr.Perfect in front of the cameras, pity he's not the same when the spotlight is on him. Not like our Andy who gives so much time to his fans.

Bonjour ladies and gentlemen, Andy has arrived in Paris!

Yaay! Thanks Clementine clapping


I also think a lot of people are getting confused between sciatica and gluteal strain.

Sciatica comes from pressure on the sciatic nerve which runs from the lower part of the spine and down either the right or left leg.  It's most common cause is pressure on that nerve due to damage to the spine.  Gluteal strain is caused by injury to one of the three gluteal muscles which form our buttocks.  The other difference is that pain from sciatica starts in the lower back, just below the waist, and travels down the leg, whilst pain from a gluteal strain is, well - just a pain in the bum.  Also it's felt at the time of the injury, unlike sciatica which tends to build up over a longer period.
I agree Aileen, although there is no "cookie-cutter" version.  I am currently recovering from surgery for this.  I'm positive Andy will have had all the tests which would show up if anything is compressing the sciatic nerve.  As we now know he is practising, I feel it unlikely this is the problem, so this can only be good news racquet  (Although I'm a wee bit worried he doesn't look too happy with himself in the video.)

Andy has learned to play the game of tennis, but not the other "game."  I feel what you see is what you get with him, and that's one of his most admirable qualities as far as I'm concerned Smile

I agree Scot, it is indeed one of his most admirable qualities! I hope he doesn't feel pressurised to play though, if he's not feeling 100pc fit!

As Andy fans we should take the positives out of Mr Smug's comments on our Andy - quite simple he knows he is going to have one heck of a job getting that No. 3 back off Muzza.   He needs to accept that yes he used to be the best player in the world - he no longer has that crown - as happens to everyone at some point - age catches up on you.  He is now in the position of having to battle three superb players who have the advantage of youth.  He could protray himiself as much more gracious if he just shut that gob of his some times.  Irks me intensley that he openly shows such disdain to Andy - there does not seem to be the same respect levels as there are for Rafa and Djoko.  I don't think he will retain his title in Basle and I for one will be shouting "Come on Andy" this afternoon but unfortunately the surname is Roddick and not Murray !!!!   Never mind .......   Everything crossed for Paris next week.

Hmm, has the other Andy ever beaten Fed, not very often, I guess.  Novak to win anyway. He looked scarily sharp in his second match.

blueberryhill - There is always a first time for everything and this could be that first time - if Jarko Niemenan can take his very first set of Mr Smug after 12 attempts maybe Roddick can snatch a victory !!!!  My heart says yes my head says a very big NO !!!!  Such a pity that andy had to pull out you got the feeling that he might have just niked his fourth title if he was able to keep his momentum up.  I think his desire, which has always been strong appears even stronger these days and these small targets that he is setting himself seem to be working rather than just focusing on that elusive slam.  I truly believe 2012 will be the year Andy wins his slam.

A bit off topic. Mr Smug again saying that Andy should stop winging about his scheduel. Not bad for someone who has not played a match for so many weeks. What's he moaning about he should keep his big mouth shut. Andy is not the only one to complain about too many matches so close together,

As far as I remember at the US Open Sir Smug agreed that the season was too long and there ought to be change.  I posted this elsewhere but, for the benefit of those who haven't heard his latest anti-Andy diatribe, here is a shortened version:

"Federer feels the players who have pulled out this week perhaps have one eye on the end of season championships and questioned whether Murray and the others would have withdrawn had they been playing at a tournament with significantly higher stakes.

'If it had been the quarter-finals of Wimbledon, would Murray have played?  Maybe,  I just figured that these are injuries that are just too dangerous to take a chance on and it's smart not to be playing when you don't feel like it's not going to work out to have a chance to win the tournament.'"

Does he really think Andy, having asked for a wild card for the singles and doubles, would have pulled out if there was any possibility of him playing - letting everyone, including his brother, down?  He really doesn't like our boy, does he?  Perhaps this was designed to cover Fed's huge sigh of relief!!!

Did Fed not pull of of the Asiian swing citing "tiredness and niggling injuries" - Pot Kettle Black - Mr Smug !!!!  Anyway there is no way Andy would have pulled out for no reason after not even being scheduled to play Basle and going to the hassle of requesting a Wild Card.  Andy was the player that went on court and apologised to the fans for not being able to play - can't recall too many other players doing that ............  Come on Andy keep that No. 3 ranking and let's see how Mr Smug responds - no doubt with more cutting comments and opinions !!!

The plus point has to be that Smuggerson is obviously rattled!

He fed, needs to shut up and get out of Andys business. Sounds like he is threatened by Andy s good play.

Federer always has felt threatened by Andy - he beat him when he was very new to the main tour and he is one of the few players that has a positive H to H against him.
