Did anyone see BBC Scotland news tonight, excellent piece on Andy, Kheradine Nitszan told a story of how when he used to follow Andy on the ATP tour, Andy sent him a birthday card on his 40th birthday and wrote inside "thanks for stalking me all year, have a great birthday".  He said Andy is funny, quiet, shy, courteous and a really nice young man and the people today are only discovering what has been there since the beginning. 

Still feeling it from yesterday but if this is a wee silver lining then at least it is a bit of a consolation.


I saw that MM.    I had seen Kheredine Idessane interviewing Andy - I think at the AO -  but I didn't realise he had been travelling with him as an assignment.   Andy obviously trusted and liked him and Kheredine's views on Andy are very like Judy's "five words to describe her son".    I've seen them posted here - can't remember
them all but do remember funny, polite and sensitive.

My boss came to me yesterday and told me how much Andy made her cry. It was especially sweet coming from her. Andy did win a lot of hearts this Sunday. The show was all about Andy, unfortunately for Federer. Haha serves him right though.

He has increased his hater as well . A lot of male viewers thought he was very "unmanly" apparently and are calling him "sissy" and "pansy" etc. Its unfortunte society is like this.

Hope they call Fed the same too then. But people have short memories.
I agree with you though, "real" men do cry in my book.

Why don't you post the links here and not the ones you posted under different accounts on different forums?

This is bull****, Ive read a lot of stuff from coaches and various sports people praising his eloquance and class. He bravely tried to hold it together also. Only a few nutty cliches are going on about him being a baby etc, & even then some will admit that the strain of having the weight of a nation on you could be enough to get you emotional ffs.
I dont cry, haven't for many years (and not because I'm "macho" either) but my eyes got misty at that speech and also the reaction when he beat Tsonga in the semis.
All humans have emotions and it was Andy's honest expression of pure emotion that touched so many people around the world.

Men do cry real men. I got very emotional and I could feel Andy's pain there is no reason to think it was not genuine. It was his release of his emotions and he needed to do that and not bottle it up. I think more of him he was right to do this. I does not make him less of a man.

I cried once  when I lost a tennis match.  I nearly won...    True story.  No joke.  lol

I thought it was great that Andy showed his emotions.  I cried a fair bit at his speech.

If you think about the emotions h e had bottled up over the past wee while, the back injuries, the loss of form, his resurgance at Wimbledon, his tough draw, is it any wonder he let go of his emotions?

Personally i think andy needs more ego . he needs to ditch his " i am just a humble good old farmer" bs if he wants to win . rafa fed and nole are all arrogant and all are ruthless .

Andy in comparison seems like some kilt wearing humble farmer.

doesn't humble mean constantly putting yourself down?  so when he faces fed does he think " omg fed is too good i am just a little old guy" ?

Novak simply hides his arrogance . Their arrogance got them where they are because it gave them a ruthless streak .

Majority of his fans are now women . His antics have appealed to females who seem to like this sort of thing . Most men like to see ambition and pride which andy is lacking .
