Andy at the Cincinnati Masters

Fish will flounder when Andy catches him whether on the line or at the net.

   Actually he deserves a bit of sympathy after all his health problems, and he won't be around much longer - he's retiring after the US Open.  Let's hope he's not up for a swan song.

Hope Andy turns him into a minnow Iluvandy  w00t
He wasn't called "Lardy Mardy" for nothing Fiverings and I will reserve my synpathy for those I admire/care about.

So looking at the schedule, they are putting this match vs Dimitrov match on court 3... Has Andy pissed in someone's pool or something?

Edit** I know Rafa is still popular, but the guy is ranked 8 in the world, it's disrespectful to Andy as far as i'm concerned, you know? Andy the world's number 2 player.

Not bothered really. Good that they're spreading the jam in a way I guess.

yes but it looks like always jam tomorrow for the world's no 2 as he's not yet played on centre court.  Have just started a match thread, given the match is later today.

Unfortunately rankings don't determine fanbases. Rafa has more fans than Andy even if he is ranked 8 in the work and so more people who buy tickets for centre would want to watch Rafa rather than Andy. But I don't understand why Andy isn't on the 2nd court.

The problem is that these things become self-fulfilling.  If you people players on a top court, the less engaged public presume they are the stars.  If you put them on an outside court, the same people presume they aren't stars.

I wouldn't be surprised if there was pressure from sponsors to ensure their top players get the top courts, and Nike or IMG or whoever pestering the organisers.  On top of that, Fed has admitted in an interview he would retire if he wasn't on the top show courts, so I dread to think what kind of fuss his people would kick up if they tried to demote him from Centre, and then there are his crazy fans!  Not forgetting that tournament organisers and a lot of punters will be worried it's his last year.

That's a stunningly patronising assumption, and I don't believe it for a second.
