Well it's less than a week away so time for a new thread don't you think my friends?
Been reading reports in today's Independent and Guardian and pleased to see that Andy is very sensibly playing down the idea that the big 3 are down and out.
My attempt at posting the link from the Independent has failed but will try again in a moment, together with the Guardian one. Here they are now:http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/tennis/can-murray-cash-in-at-us-open-while-rivals-show-the-strain-2342188.htmlhttp://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2011/aug/22/andy-murray-us-open
The latter questions Andy's belief that it doesn't take high risk tennis to beat Nole, citing the high risk tennis Monfils played at Cinci. But then Monfils didn't beat Nole did he? And Andy doesn't say it's not about taking any risks but says 'it's not about just taking risks'... Would be interested to know what others think. How far should Andy be sticking to his game, as tailored to each opponent, and how far should he play a more aggressive game, which he does do sometimes to good effect. What lessons will he learn from his defeat by Rafa at Wimbledon I wonder?
Does anyone know if Andy is training with Cahill this week in NY once he's rested after Cinci?
And the big question: will he or won't he be wearing red?
Anyway, hope you have a great week in the big apple Andy and can't wait for battle to begin even if I am
I've changed the poll to the serious one but still isn't working.
