Andy at Rogers Cup 2012

Quote

I do think Andy wants to win Toronto. That has been the tradition so far, but because of Olympics, it has thrown him off a bit. I checked out the draw as well. He has Raonic, Berdych, Isner all in the same half and that looks rough, though not everyone's going to make it that far but who knows. Andy will see how he feels on Tuesday and will take it from there. He does indeed need some rest before USO and the ideal scenario will be to get a few matches going at Rogers for preparation purpose and then skip Cincinnati altogether (too close to USO and not enough time to get proper rest) and I believe that's what he'll do or hope so.

Hey TJ

Andy has drawn Raonic unfortunately, potentially in R3 if they both get there.

If he plays, this is his potential route:

Bye - Zopp/Cipolla - Raonic/Troicki - Isner/Kohlschreiber - Berdych/Monaco/Gasquet - Djokovic?

So if he does play, and assuming he gets past whichever qualifier he plays in R2, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him lose to Raonic in R3.

As it is, I wouldn't be at all surprised to see him withdraw yet.

Could it be a harder draw?  It does seem crazy to put himself through that when jet lagged and with only a day to switch from grass to hard courts.

Andy and Lendl know what to do, so don't worry.

Well, someone is taking the wee-wee aren't they, with a draw like that? Bonkers, absolutely bonkers.

Tell 'em to shove it Andy love, you don't need the hassle.

Don't get me wrong, it's brilliant of him to want to play if he can, but I'd be utterly pee'd off if he lost to Roanic, who just annoys me beyond reason for no reason at all, or Berdych, who is just as smug as bloody Smugfed, or Gasquet, who is.....well, Gasquet!

GRRR!

 Of course if he does what you suggest he will lose 1000 points as he won Cincinnati last year

I really cannot see Andy getting far here, although he does seem to think he'll play.  I can't see him being able to cope with jetlag, the unaccustomed heat and the sudden change of surface - and all that on top of his Wimbledon exertions.  Also once again he has a ***** of a draw.  Well, he has to get to the US anyway, so I suppose Toronto is as good a place to start as any, and if he pulls out of Cincinnati and loses 1,000 ranking points, so be it.  Being fit for the USO is of paramount importance now.

I agree that playing this week is not ideal, but going out early here (where he is defending nowt) would be preferable to going out early when he is defending big points.

I am pissed off that Andy  doesn't even get time to properly celebrate his win.  So annoyed

Hi All,

I've got Toronto on TV at the moment. I missed the first hour, which annoyed me. I wanted to see if they talked about Andy at all. Anyway, they mentioned some of them in his draw and pointed out that if he wins there he will overtake Rafa in the rankings. I'm guessing that is Andy's incentive to play.

You know, I'm going to be positive. If Andy thinks he can play that is great. I just won't allow myself to be disappointed if he loses to someone I don't like, but if someone could despatch Berdych and Raonic I would be grateful  pray.

Did they not even say  WHAT a absolute stunning few months that Andy has had.?   Its been brilliant.  Best player in the world just now  .  He needs a damn ******* rest.  Sorry if I'm being Selfish. I know he's a fit guy.  but seriously his body must be aching.
