May be it's better to take always into account that players are human beings with all kind of things that influence their effort despite their ambitions. For me, I always try do that and feel and talk respectful about all players and these interviews makes me feel that's the right way.

Totally agree.  yes

Transcript of Andy's press conference yesterday. Seems like audio recordings are being released fairly soon after the pressers, and then transcripts the following day.

Love it - especially as I've just been watching a documentary on TV about the Met's dogs, the work they do, and the very high standards they have to meet before being considered for training to do a specific job.

Some of the write-ups of today's match are just bad. So bad. People get paid for this stuff, some of the writing is seriously bad... Maybe the heat got to them?

Greg R doesn't like variety, particularly drop shots, and needs to totally get over his crush on Lendl.

@ATL - Thanks for the articles.  I didn't read all of them but Alan Pattullo for The Scotsman definitely got the biggest thumbs down!

Haase dreams of stunt against Murray

Robin Haase makes a strong start at Wimbledon EPA




Robin Haase looked back with satisfaction on his first round at Wimbledon. "Today there was a lot of good," he sounded satisfied after his victory over Alejandro Falla.

"My backhand was almost better than my forehand well with the slice as the passing shot. If it is, then you can dictate," Haase analyzed.

Reliance on grass

The Dutchman owes to his own performance saying among other rhythm on grass he gained in recent weeks. "This year I have won more matches on grass than usual. Three winning games in a row, as in Rosmalen, gives confidence."



"
I've never played a bad match at Wimbledon
Robin Haase "


"I've never played a bad match at Wimbledon and always play well here, which you can also see the results. I have already won against James Blake and Fernando Verdasco in five sets and lost to Rafael Nadal", stressed Haase.

@ATL - Thanks for the articles.  I didn't read all of them but Alan Pattullo for The Scotsman definitely got the biggest thumbs down!

Pattullo certainly has a few errors and a touch of melodrama, but Stewart Fisher for the Herald gets the prize for the worst written paragraph of the day (para 4), while Mike Dickson for the Daily Mail gets a fail for totally unnecessary, subtext laden, selective observations.

Simon Briggs's write up for the Telegraph finally got put up on their website. Written with his typical suave Federer worshiping snideness and awful similes.

I've just read all these and reminded myself of why I usually stay away from the British press during Wimbledon.  Isn't that picture in the Mail report of 'Andy' supposedly pouring water over himself actually Feliciano Lopez? The whole 'battle of the female coaches' thing and the constant referencing of Amelie's pregnancy is just demeaning too. Rusedski doesn't seem to consider that Lendl's particular approach might not be what Andy wants or needs right now. I'd also like to know when exactly his matches stopped being topsy turvy under Lendl as Briggs asserts in his article. Did none of them watch the Verdasco QF in 2013? Or the U.S. Open final?! :p

Thanks I did see it, but didn't post it as the copy seemed almost identical to Fisher's Herald article. He did ditch some of his poorer adverbs/adjectives for the National though. Perhaps the Herald paid him more?
