I was thinking the same thing, gone really quiet re the top 4 playing at the mo. Everyone else seems to be entering tournaments and playing. Changing the subject just slightly Good on Serena winning her second comeback tournament (stanford). Beat Bartoli in the final 7-5, 6-3 enroute to the title she absolutely smashed Sharapova 6-1, 6-3 wow! looks like shes back (according to her sources Serena says she is looking to improve on her game and she is targeting Toronto - ouch clap its good to see her fit and healthy and playing with the intensity we know she is capable of.

Andy has been practising for 4 hours in the heat, as well as his other fitness training. Hardly think this is time off. Go onto his facebook and you will be able to see a short video of his training.

Well said Michelle.  Apart from the FO, there's always a bit of a lull after Slams, at least where the top players are concerned, but that doesn't mean they're sitting on their bums doing nothing!

It's always quiet among the biggest players in this period - there are no really decent tournaments on and it's a good break before the North American swing in terms of Masters and the USO.

Not only that but given that Wimbledon comes right after RG, then these players, who should ideally at least make the SFs, are bound to need a break to recover physically and mentally.  In fact Andy is perhaps a little unique in that his idea of a holiday is a break of a few days then it's off to the States for rigorous training.  I bet your life that Djoko, Nadal and Fed all take proper holidays.  Certainly I recall that Henman always took two weeks holiday away from it all immediately after Wimbledon.

Maybe Andy should follow their example, then perhaps he wouldn't be so prone to picking up an injury/virus come the USO - and in that regard perhaps he could ask himself why he came unstuck there both in 2009 and 2010.  He takes good care of himself in the run up to the AO, so why not the USO, since these two Slams are the one's he's tipped as being most likely to win?

Don't quite know where to put this info., so
article on Bleacher saying if Andy and Rafa are on opposite sides of the draw, one of them will win USOpen. If they are on the same side, Novak will likely win.
But another one puts Andy at the TOP of 10 most over-rated players. Roddick is second and list includes Isner and Querry!!!  shocking
Obviously written by a Yank, but honestly the red mist descended when I read that and hasn't lifted Boxing

Some of those reports on Bleacher are very poor and are aimed at getting maximum reaction from people.  I read the one about Andy being in the top 10 of underachievers - think they are somewhat off the mark - he has consistently beein in the Top 5 for the last few years and has a large number of Masters titles and reaches the end stages of the slams etc. He is just awaiting the breakthrough which with a bit of luck will be in a few weeks time.
