Wasn't it said recently that only two active players have a winning head to head over he who must be smug, Andy being one and Nadal being the other? I'm sure I remember it being mentioned. It sounds like the sort of thing Petch tells us during matches lol.
I don't think the Smug One looks unbeatable in Shanghai, quite the reverse in fact. If Andy is feeling better tomorrow and gets a decent start I think he has a great chance. I'm not going to worry either way though. Andy doesn't look 100% at the moment, so I don't want him to run himself ragged and risk injury ahead of the WTF. As much as I would love the hat trick in Shanghai, the WTF is more important in the scheme of things.
Completely agree,Teejay.As great as it would be for Andy to get the win tomorrow (which I'm quite confident he would if in the whole of his health),if it would ruin what's left of the season for him,it's not worth it.Andy falling ill now is just one of those really unfortunate timing things-but better now than at the WTF!
LOVE he who must be smug,by the way-every bit as appropriate as Smugfed
