I must be the only one who has acquired a small degree of serenity for Andy matches now. Since the Olympics and particularly since the US Open I am much calmer. I was always so desperate for Andy to win, still am, but in the past I felt almost as if his life depended on winning and now I feel he is so much happier with himself. I even find myself saying quite quietly "C'mon now Andy it's up to you, just buckle down". No more screaming at the computer. Let's see how it goes on clay.
You're honestly not the only one. These days I'm much, much calmer. I don't swear at the TV as much, neither do I feel the urge to take a baseball bat to all of Andy's opponents (seriously, don't even ask lol) and, strangest of all, I don't feel the need to nurse Andy through his matches so much. There was something about that Miami final though. Somehow the atmosphere was nerve-wracking for me even before a ball had been struck. I think it was the awareness of Andy's ranking, plus the knowledge that he was playing an opponent who can make life awkward, but is still beatable.
I approach most of Andy's matches now with the idea that he can win, even if he's pushed, because he beat Djokovic and Federer back to back to win the Olympics, and he fought his way through the USO to get to the final, then he beat Djokovic in five on a hard court to win his first major. Somehow after that everything else seems all right, but in Miami there was a lot hanging on it, so the jitters came out to play again lol.
I think people can get a bit sniffy about the manner in which Andy won Miami. I suppose people will do the 'he could have done this, he could have done that', thing, but you know, at the end of the day Andy won the point he was required to win, the last one. The route there doesn't matter. In fact I think there is a message, with all due respect, for Ferrer in Andy winning in the way he did, i.e. 'even when I'm not playing my best I can still find a way through you'. That's exactly what Andy did.
