Yep, if im not wrong, djokovic's success came after he started working with a psychologist.
He also claims that Serbia winning the Davis Cup last December for the first time in its history gave him a tremendous boost.
Given Andy's personality he may think turning to a psychologist is a little weird eg Billy Connollys wife or dare i say unmanly. I have a husband who believes that about psychologists even though he is married to one There are however some excellent young sports psychologists out there who could help Andy who are not weird and have some excellent strategies. It is difficult to change stereotypical prejudices though!!! Hope your having a restful break Andy away from everything including Murraysworld.
Marg, I know this subject has already been discussed at some length on MW, but you're new to the forum.
Andy was pushed into consulting a sports psychologist by Brad Gilbert after he injured his wrist in 2007 and was having problems coming to terms with the psychological effects of the injury to the detriment of his game, and from what I gather from his autobiography, he actually found the experience quite helpful. What impressed him most was the fact that the psychologist didn't focus on the injury (which he was fed up with people asking him about) but instead discussed "other things, like how I was going to win matches, how I saw myself as a player, what my goals were - positive things." Unfortunately, after only 3 sessions, he felt that he wasn't making sufficient progress, and that, apparently, was that, so this might explain his seeming reluctance to consult another one.
By the way, his name is Roberto Forzoni. As he's quite high profile, maybe you've come across him, if not perhaps this might interest you, although he's no longer employed by the LTA as is stated here - http://www.procomparetennis.net/articles/author/Roberto-Forzoni
I've had a read of Forzoni's article "6 BIG mistakes players make between points" - and mistake No.1, "Fail to manage their emotions" is just tailor-made for Andy!
