Thanks LB. I don't know about straight to the point. I think I'm probably the worst for taking a detour before I get to the point, but thanks so much anyway!

It's a bit out of date with some of those stats - 22 titles?

And 8 Masters titles apparently. I'm trying to work out if the writer knows nothing about Andy, or nothing about the sport. Either that or they can't count.

The strengths and weaknesses is something I've read before, so I'm thinking most of it is a copy and paste job they forgot to update.

think of it like this tj -many many more people can 'hear' you here on MW than in your living room - so just keep on posting.  But joking apart sorry that you're having problems with your voice again.

Very true Ruthie lol. Seriously, anyone standing more than three feet away would never hear me. It's great I can come on here and be heard around the world lol. It's company for me too, in all seriousness. I find being without my voice quite isolating, so being able to talk on here is great for me.

Thanks. The good thing is that the doctor took me seriously this time. I don't know if we'll ever get to why I'm so prone to laryngitis, but having someone actually listen and appreciate the problems it causes, was good for me. The down side is that when I dealt with ENT last time it took them weeks to see me, then weeks to refer me to speech therapy. Speech therapy worked in about six weeks. That means no voice for Queen's or Wimbledon (I'll be a wreck!) and maybe none until the USO at least! That padded cell might be beckoning!

Good article - but what a dreadful photo of Andy at the end!  It would terrify the life out of little children. lol

Some interesting comments by Fibak on Andy and Lendl in this Telegraph article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/tennis/10106660/Aegon-Championships-2013-the-forgotten-man-who-has-helped-shape-Andy-Murrays-career.html

“You see that nonchalant, phlegmatic side of him during matches, which is a shame because you would expect Scottish people to be more aggressive."

Why does he expect that?

I noticed that too.  Perhaps he's basing it on the fact that Scots were renowned for their fighting spirit, particularly in battle, only he's chosen to translate that as aggressiveness?

Aggressiveness can be translated many ways - it doesn't have to mean that he wants players to look like they are about to whack their opponent.  In the tennis world, it's usually meant in the way you say Aileen - as having fighting spirit, and generally being "up for it".  In this case, up for a tennis battle - not mugging old ladies.  Or so I presume from the context, lol. lol
