I thought he got married and didn't want to spend time on the road.  I suppose it could be argued that he might be around and about during home tournaments, but if Andy has a new physio, that's who we will see.  The new guy is supposed to be a back specialist, and has had back surgery himself, so I'm not sure where Andy Ireland would fit in.
Andy's new physio is also a back specialist who has, or had, his own Harley Street practice (so not cheap then), although I can't for the life of me remember his name now.

As for Andy Ireland, in Jonathan Overend's Wimbledon report (wonderful to read all that again!) he says "A thought also for former physio Andy Ireland, who cut down on his work with Murray this year for personal reasons."  I seem to recall too that Andy I was married and said he didn't want to go on travelling round the world, either that or Mrs I put her foot down, but whichever, I'm sure his departure from team was amicable, since there could be a whole host of reasons why he wasn't present at Wimbledon.  Our Andy did take Tim Henman's former physio on board for a while, but obviously it makes sense to now have a physio who is also a fully qualified back specialist.

In Australia Andy has Mark Bender, is that who you mean? There was someone else in the team for Wimbles, but I can't remember his name either. It'll come to me in a bit.

Thanks TJ.  Yes it is - and how could I forget when I said that I thought Bender was an appropriate name for a back specialist!

No problem. The funny thing about him, apart from his appropriate name, is that I've seen him in Andy's team before, but didn't realise who he was. Now I know and his name is stuck in my head Smile.

Also I understand that Johan de Beer was Timbo's physio, but being Andy's could just have been a temporary arrangement.

Mark Bender worked with Tim Henman as well.    One of his favourite clients - a class act on and off the court, he said.

I don't like Nadal much but I hope he thrashes Fed.    What I don't understand is how little he is criticised.   Excuses for him from all quarters.    It didn't make any difference etc.    Of course it does.    The man is a cheat.   And no-one can be sure it made no difference.    Probably not but not a sure thing.    Every ball hit after that incident would have been different if the umpire had ruled it as not up.

Yeah think it was in the 4th set......andy looked at the umpire as if......arent you gonna say anything but umpire obviously thought it was ok. It was really hard to tell, even in slow motion.

That's not good, is it?  Hard to believe Fed didn't know if he got it or not.  Bad form, Fed - bad form.  Frown

The thing that makes me laugh was when Federer said he didn't know, at that point he might have had his eyes closed.

What the hell? For goodness sake man, I've never picked up a racquet in my life, but even I know the first rule is always keep your eye on the ball. Didn't see it my foot!

I get the feeling Andy is more annoyed at the officials than Federer to be honest, although I doubt Federer will be on his Christmas card list any time soon. It was, as he says, under the umpire's nose, so something should have been done.

I still think his point about the big screens is spot on.
