Andy, as far as 'keeping your cool' is concerned, I watched you struggle with it loads of times throughout the match, and apart from one or two little 'blips' you managed to 'rein yourself' in and regain your self control! Even the one time when I thought you might lose it completely, you managed to stop before too much damage was done! [ The 'old' Andy would never have managed that!] I think you did tremendously well, and I for one, am very proud of you! Oh.....and when you said '********' to the umpire, I said it right along with you! Don't waste time regretting the outcome of this match, [even you can't win them all], just get all your little niggles ironed out, so you'll be 100% fit for London! I can't wait! hug

Don't know what to say... works fine for me.
I got it to work fine for me too, after a bit of fiddling, and very interesting it was too! Thanks for sharing Scot!

I think Andy going out now, could be a blessing in disguise as he would have been very tired, hopefully he can get his body completely fit, iron out the niggles and be more than ready for the O2. All I want is that Tomas B is in the same form today and put Fed out, up to now hw hasn't really faced any serious  opposition up to now. Regarding the balls I think it was the wrong time to change the balls as Andy 40 love up, this I believe turned the match and Andy would have won, however I'm glad he's got time to recover before London.Every cloud has a silver lining.

Yes it did for me this morning - clearly didn't do enough twiddling last night.  I was pleased to hear Andy being so positive and clearly taking lessons for what he needs to work on for 02 after a rest.  Given he was unhappy with his back hand - his normal bread and butter - that probably contributed to loss of cool.  But I agree with Caz et al that I think he was in the right on the balls and I get the sense that Andy is someone with a sense of justice so if he feels an injustice he understandably gets angry.  And didn't seem to me that he held on to it.  [Oh dear, I'll be accused of blind devotion again!  w00t]

Totally agree Ruthie. Andy never seems to ask for much or complain about scheduling of matches etc. but he does seem to hate any form of unfairness or injustice and just has to express it.

Andy was in the right to complain, and it's good that he does express it as he has to stand up for himself. Thought it was completely wrong to change the balls in the middle of a game when the score was 0-40.

thanks but can't get it to work - just says no video when I click.

Hope you can access it in due course. I thought it was a fair and intelligent interview. He did not blame the court, the balls, or the umpire. He just said that his backhand and services were not working the way he had expected.

He also said that he would take a few days off, practise these deficiencies and be fully fit for O2. These days of rest would enable him to rid himself of these various slight niggles.

Onwards and upwards, Andy. You are still a pleasure and delight to watch. Long may it continue.

Nonsense, Ruthie, I'd call it fairness - even the comms said it was wrong and favoured Berdych.

Berdych came out really flat today as expected. This reminds of last year's WTF where Nadal and Andy had a very long, grueling match in the semi. Nadal was so done after the match that he was barely there in the final against Federer. It took a lot for Nadal to beat Andy in that match. If Andy wants to win a match, then it takes a lot for any player to beat him. I am quite sure the same Berdych yesterday would have beaten Federer and Novak as well. Time and again Federer gets lucky with the draws and schedule. But there are such things as good losses and this one just might be one of them. I guess in time we'll know. Federer can keep his Paris, WTF will be another matter.
