If Andy was still seeded 2 he could still have had to play Nadal, Federer and Djoko, so I don't see being no 3 such a disaster. I'm just hoping and praying that Andy will get a good draw missing Berdy, JJ on his side of the draw, and that he has opponents early on that do not cause him too much trouble so that he can get to the second week relatively refreshed.
Why be afraid of people like Berdych and Janowicz? this is a slam not a masters, Andy is much harder to beat over 5 sets than he is 3.
I think Johnny Mac made a good point the other day regarding his recent losses being due to him being hunted more now as a slam winner, especially since Wimbledon. Andy is going to have to learn how to deal with players upping their game against him, we have seen recently what happens when a player starts to lose their aura of invincibility with Fed, and to some extent Djokovic.
