Fascinating.  No wonder Fed was impressed by his talent, just as I was when I first saw him play and Queens and then Wimbledon the same year.

Trouble is Ruthie that there's just such a massive amount of stuff around during the Fringe (3,000 different acts, to be exact) it isn't surprising this got overlooked.  Also I see the date on the article is April 2012, so exactly in which Fringe did this play appear?  My guess would be 2010 or 2011.  Doesn't sound quite my cup of tea, but it's interesting, if a little bizarre, that they used Fed vs Andy as an analogy for the war in Afghanistan - that is, if my understanding of the play is correct.

 

Sorry only just spotted this Aileen.  The ad in LRB was this summer so it was this summer's fringe though it has appeared in US at an earlier date I think.  Difficult to judge it without seeing (or reading) it but I found it intriguing that someone should have used Andy vs Smugfed as a 'subject' of a play in this way.

The clip posted by chl is v interesting.   I know that early in his career Andy said to smugfed that it was privilege to play against him so perhaps that's what he said at the end?  Given Andy showed smugfed so much respect I've always found it strange that the latter seems to dislike him.

But Ruthie, Andy has always praised Rafa to the skies and openly said Rafa is his favourite player to watch.
Think some of it stems from this.

It could also be that, after that first meeting, Andy started to beat Fed fairly regularly!

Either way it reflects badly on smugfed - but what's new eh?

Thanks Bev.

- Or that Simon yawn Cowell put on a GBP25,000 bet for Andy to lose Wimbles final. (Pissy Nob.)

- Or that Andy considered retiring from tennis in 2010 after playing in the Cincinnatti heat.  shocking
