Rolling Eyes  Boycott the paper!

In fact, flood the on-line papers with positive comments!  Let Andy know that his true supporters are behind him 100%

Come on guys before AO we just waned him to reach QFs without any hiccup. He has improved as a player last year he would have possibly lost to Isner, maybe lost to Nadal, almost definatley lost to Cilic. AO finalist is a good start to 2010 and something to build on the hurt he felt from this might do him some good. We all know what happened to the last teary RU of the AO don't we....

i thought it was a courageous performance, just look at how tsonga folded in the semi-final, andy never gave up and should be proud of his tournament. the only real difference between the players today was with the serve. in the first couple of sets andy seemed to be having to come back from 0-30 etc which gave federer a bit too much encouragement and left andy with little margin for error. if he can up his service level (and i reckon he will) then our boy is a multiple slam winner for sure.

ps i think murray will surprise a few people at the french, he was really starting to perform to a high standard during last years clay season and for me is a good outside bet at roland garros this year. i'm tipping him for at least another couple of finals appearances this year so todays match isn't the end of the world. it's only a matter of time..

Heartbreaking for Andy - he welled up not for himself but for his team and supporters.  Genuine emotion, he tried so hard to stop the tears and then just said 'I'm done'.

yea i agree he should have chances in the US and on grass

clay well if he plays more agressively then maybe he can get a bit further not sure if he could get to the finals on clay but good luck to him

felt so sad for him and the sun not a real newspaper

To be honest, Andy is in a transitional stage at the moment with this first real tournament of the year.

He has gone from a counter punching style where he used a lot of slices to his present style where he is mostly hitting the ball with either top spin or flat to push his opponent back, only using slice to get back in position.

Andy has spent a very similar amount of time as Federer on court in the AO which is not a lot.

In a few months time, Andy will get more used to hit attacking shots and approach the net for volleys and force errors from his opponents.

That is when he will be at his deadliest.

OK Andy had chances and his serve again let him down, but he has nothing to apologise for.  It wasn't that he played badly just that he came up against the brick wall of the greatest player around today.  Also sticky court was causing him problems (is it the court or his trainers?  Think Adidas should look at this).

Felt as choked as he did at the end but at least he went down fighting.  I'm proud of you Andy - your time will come.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Face it, there's a lot of losing in tennis. There were 128 men in the singles and 127 of them lost.

And remember, Lendl didn't win his first slam until he was 24 and he got 8. Agassi was 22 and he finished with 8 as well. Players mature at different rates and Andy is showing a nice gradual upward curve - look at the year-end rankings. Hopefully, he'll peak just as the Swiss freak retures.
