More on the Lendl interview:

"I don't think you become good by having low expectations, and if the player has high expectations, then the coach has to have high expectations as well."

Brilliant, thanks fp!
Love hearing Andy when he's relaxed. Thought it was funny when he said he got a good deal when bought his Miami Heat box the day before LeBron James & Co hit the big-time, and now they are worth probably double what he paid, and that he sells his season tickets when he's not there. A canny Scot! lmao
Must say, I'm surprised he hasn't actually met any of the players, especially LeBron - who tweeted him when he won the USO. He thinks they won't know who he is.
Also thought it was hilarious when one of the interviewers said it must have felt great at the Olympics to beat Federer for the first time...!! Andy's reaction: "What do you mean?.. Beating Federer?.. I beat Federer for the first time when I was 19 and I've played him like 18 times!"

Such a lovely start to my day.

enjoyed the interview but the interviewer seemed v confused as to whom Andy beat where and when.
And matchpoint thanks for those stats - pretty impressive.  It does suggest Andy can hold his head up among the greats of the game.

Great interviews, thanks Linda and fp. Agree about the Federer question - hilarious! They said they were advised to stay off tennis questions - probably wise, they didn't seem to know too much about it, or Andy!

No, there seemed to be a great deal of confusion.  At first there was a possibility that they'd just left the sentence hanging, omitting the qualification that it was the first time Andy had beaten Roger in a best of 5, or at Wimbledon/on grass, but then they seemed to repeat it.  Then the other one seemed to think he beat Roger at the US Open.

That said, their opening questions were clearly a set-up for Andy to suck up to the local listeners by raving about Miami when they asked why he lived here and what he liked about it, and Andy just gave sensible, matter of fact answers, so they were probably rolling their eyes at him too! Very Happy

I think it's apparent that Andy does feel that winning Olympic Gold was his favourite moment of his career, but he knows that he's supposed to say the US Open, and is almost apologising for it, and having to give excuses.  Granted, the fact it was a home Olympics and at Wimbledon would have contributed considerably to the moment, but it's strange that much of the tennis community seems to be averse to this opinion.  I dare say that the tennis industry relies on hyping up the majors and the massive prize money etc, so it's off message to prefer the event with no prize money, that's only staged once every four years, and that has other sponsors.  Interestingly, Delpo recently said that his Olympic bronze was right at the top of his career highlights with the US Open win.  Granted, he's not had that many big wins, but he's still a top player who fought hard to get on the podium for glory, not money.

The Olympic Gold was my favourite moment as well. It had all the ingredients of a fairy tale. After the crushing disappointment of the Wimbledon final, to pick himself up and throw himself back into the fray, less than a month later. It was a lot to ask of himself. What he must have felt like having to go back out onto centre court I can't imagine. Yet he did, ending up realising he had to play the same opponent on the same court, never having beaten him in a 5 set match before. I think we sometimes underestimate the guts that must have taken.  What I loved about it was the sheer joy of that victory, from the running up into the stands to hug everybody, to the inane grin in his interview with Sue Barker, and the Tim Henman hug.  He seemed to grow in stature, from the moment that final ace whistled past Federer.  he had all the important people in his life around him to share it with him. The US Open final was a gut slog, something that had to be done, and was so very important. He was so knackered at the end he could barely walk, and looked so shell shocked, although the photos of him cuddling the trophy in Central Park the following day are cute. I wonder how much of the events of that Septermber night he remembers with any degree of clarity, whereas I imagine the Gold Medal victory is etched on his consciousness and will be to the end of his days.

The titel is intended to discribe his  general condition in this part of his carreer, it's not about his condition at this moment, am I right?
