That's nice to hear. Smile  What a lovely memento.

Couldn't agree more!I love mementos like that,that are such tangible reminders of things.How wonderful it must be to see that all the time,and instantly have all those memories,which must be so wonderful,and I'm sure very emotional.I don't mean she doesn't have them anyway,but I always think things like that really add to your memories.(Although I'm pretty sure the actual medals trump any other mementos from that day lol!)Here's a picture she posted of the bouquet:

Touch the sky - and touch it he did.

Actually I don't remember Andy as being a racquet smasher but I'd much prefer he did this than what he used to do, i.e. hit himself on the knuckles until he drew blood.





No I don't think he was.  Makes me wonder whether someone - Alexis? Ivan? - has suggested he get rid of his frustration by smashing a racquet rather than taking it out on himself.  It does seem to work better as a way of then letting go of it.

I don't think you've been watching him for very long zarfeen.  He's been keeping his emotions under check better the last year or so but prior to that he could be terrible on court.  And I think playing against Andy probably makes his frustration boil over.  I suspect many more racquets ae going to be sacrificed to this rivalry -on both sides.

I agree Ruth, he was better controlled last year and after the us open he has a lot of reasons to smash his racquet!!

That's really beautiful.  Thanks for posting.

That thought had occurred to me as well.  What he was doing before was effectively self-harm and that was a bit worrying.

Yes I always used to wince when he smashed his hand on the racquet - though Youzny had to win the self-harm prize I think.

Yes I remember it too Chris  and have found it difficult to forgive and forget even though Andy himself clearly has done.

Those are the chapter names the writer of the article would like to see. I highly doubt they'll be the real ones!  Very Happy

Zarfeen you can see a video clip of that incident on the homepage of the site http://www.murraysworld.com/video/ if the link still works. It's under "controversial"!

It sitll works. Smile  I do remember seeing the match but, really, looking at it again now it seems like a storm in a teacup at least as far as the ball incident goes.  As Robbie Koenig says "So what?" if the ball hit Andy.  These things happen, and Delpo later said it wasn't intentional.  Of course we don't know what Delpo said about Andy's Mum but there was a feeling then that that particular spat went back to an earlier time.  A couple of young hotheads really and I'm glad Andy has had the maturity to put it behind him.  Bearing grudges is puerile and does nobody any good.

I do wish though that they'd leave Andy's biography until he retires.  We've already had his autobiography "Hitting Back" which was written when Andy was only 21, although I think it's been updated and renamed "Coming of Age" (or something like that), and it looks as though this book is going to be covering a lot of the same ground.  I love the suggested chapter titles though!
