It's not a great article Mad,but what I've found interesting was just how much coverage this has got.Yesterday when articles first started appearing about the interview,I thought I'd try and keep track-to see how many supported Andy,how many might feel the need to try and defend Richardson.Today I quickly decided against that-too many!
I've been thrilled to see the level of support for Andy though,and how many have expressed admiration for how he handled the situation.
I was interested by that quote of Kim's too-like I said,I wondered where it originated from,given that she normally stays well away from the speaking-to-press side of things.I thought it must have been from her twitter,because of Andy's quotes being from twitter,but nope!
Anyway,I hope the crowds take the hint.Andy's asked for loud crowd support every opportunity he's got,and now Kim's urged it too.He finally got it yesterday-but only after everything nearly fell apart for him!I just really hope the crowd are loud in their support from the outset tomorrow
I really hope Kim did say what she is quoted as having said. It's the truth. It was fantastic support on the hill, and they were much better than on CC, especially at first.
If Andy does get a fine for swearing in the heat of the moment I won't be surprised, but I will be furious. Andy was swearing at himself. It was entirely understandable. Federer swore at Andy over the net at the AO and you can bet he got away with it. I suppose two wrongs don't (arguably) make a right, but I would much rather hear a player swear at himself (not that it was audible) to get himself going, than hear one, especially one who repeatedly wins sportsmanship awards, swearing over the net at an opponent.
Agree on every count Teejay!
