That's quite a good piece, but I stopped taking it really seriously when the writer used the word horizontality. I have no idea what that means.

Seems to be a new (irritating) habit that people are acquiring - adding 'ality' or 'icity' onto nouns to create non existent verbs which soun gran but don't really mean anything.

I guess it's just a posh way of saying the way he slides so he's almost horizontal with the ground tj!   I quite enjoyed the article, as you get the sense the author is really intrigued by Andy,  but I Also he doesn't seem to appreciate Andy's speed around the court.

it could well be ww [in search of a 'd'].  I realised I hadn't taken in whether the author was male or female but didn't go back to check because to me it read more like the way a man would write but don't ask me to explain  Whistle

Liked this comment on a Guardian Article talking about Mr M difficulties with publicity and the BBC.

"The BBC seemed to want a plucky loser who they could psychoanalyse, rather than someone who couldn't bear to be not quite good enough and so kept at it until he was."

Like that quote.    The BBC and the media in general are not very good at assessing the personalities of their "stars" we can see now from the court cases ongoing and pending.
