Um - I wouldn't really know, but I'm damn sure that the DM photographer asked them all to look as glum and sad as possible, hence the obviously contrived expression.

Reading the comments - most people apart from the complete thickos are saying that the article is complete nonsense, and are condemning the mail for stirring it.

I read a lot of the comments too and it looks like the stupid DM has only ended up with egg all over its face with this one.  There's no substance whatsoever in that article, just sensationalist tripe.

Also it was they who apparently said that it Andy bought the hotel he would ensure that the tenancies remained, which he obviously has done, but that doesn't mean that he promised not to 'evict' them.

Anyway if the tenants in question felt so aggrieved, why didn't they complain when they got the original notice to quit six months ago?  Not that that would have done them any good because the landlords hadn't done anything wrong, and I'd assume that a Lease would be in place for each tenancy.
 
Typical sob-story garbage from the DM, complete with deliberately posed photo of poor unhappy Mum with her equally unhappy looking bairns.

If so it's a nice try on their part, but there's nothing they need to be compensated for.  The previous landlords, and Andy, haven't done anything illegal.  I take their point about staff being recruited locally, but I also know that bringing in some 'specialist' staff from elsewhere is a necessity.  

Basically it's a completely pointless and malicious article designed to tarnish Andy's good public image.








Yes Aileen.....I know!  Whistle

How the **** does the Guardian know what Andy does or doesn't want to reflect on?  It wasn't a pretty match but Andy might have learnt quite a lot from it.  As far as I'm concerned it was good that he was tested like this at this stage of his recovery even it was by a 20 year old who just happens to be a very good, promising player.

They have pinched most of it from Sky, but have added some of the nasty bits. Which bit of "he was off for almost 4 months and is playing himself back in", don't the media understand? How quickly they forget Wimbledon....!!!

Obviously the writer (unnamed) has no idea whatsoever what it must be like to have back surgery, be out of competition for three and a half months, and then try to fight your way back to 100% form again, especially at Andy's level.  Also there seems to be an implication that Andy's broken string on a crucial point was somehow his fault.

The article isn't even all that complimentary about Thiem either by saying "he had a fair amount of good fortune", when in fact he played a lot of very good tennis.  Don't these morons realise that Nadal, Federer (in his heyday) and Djokovic have also struggled against unexpectedly good players, and that when fully fit?

Pretty much sums up my reaction!  At end of the day it all counts as court time which is what he needs - and shows how he's progressed, against Mayer he couldn't turn it around, today he could. Can't win pretty every day but its the win that counts.

I agree Westie.  Also Andy being handed a wildcard for Rotterdam was a big bonus.  So what if he goes out to Cilic?  That's still three matches he wasn't expecting to have.  Onward and upwards I say!
