Aileen on Sky they mentioned the heat. They said it was cool by Cincy standards today, only about 65 degrees, so quite comfortable.
Goodness, that is low for Cincy. Hope it stays that way.
I think that, if he has got enough self-confidence, he should always play near baseline because it is from there that his new forehand can be dangerous.
Living 3mt beside he risks to play sleeply and then becomes frustrated.
Playing near baseline doesn't mean play offensive, but just let the opponent feels your presence of . 2 in the world.
He can play with passing shots from baseline but with mind would be always offensive.
I agree, but Andy has also said one reason he stays near the baseline is because he knows he can run quickly forward to get balls near the net, which is why he's so keen on doing his 200 metre sprints in Miami. And more often than not, it works, but I still think it's an energy consuming tactic, and I'm sure he could shorten some of these equally energy wasting long rallies if he did come to the net more often because he's so good there.
