Very few have high expectations for Andy at RG this year, so that should take some of the pressure off for him.
The next three tournements for Andy are on Grass and here if fully fit, he should do very well.

Come on, Andy prove all these fair weather friends wrong and not only arrive in the 2 nd week but also--------------------------?

Off topic, guys and gals, today received my tickets for Wimbledon Olympics - 29/07/2012 all day. Unfortunately, slight downside seats are for Court 1 not Centre Court. Hope to have a sight of Andy nevertheless. Can live with it as beggars can't be choosers.

I'm guessing that Andy will probably be on court around 4pm-ish UK time.

I agree, the pressure is really off for this one.  The commies have hardly mentioned Andy and all the talk is of the 'big three'.

I've noticed that, although one did go as far as to mention Andy as "the big three + one".  I'd like to think that the "+ one" will go out there and show them differently, but, as he's had such little match practice coming into this tournament, and that, plus the back problem, which still seems to be hanging around, and the loss to Gulbis, doesn't fill me with optimism.  Like Andy, I'm not looking past Ito who, according to yesterday's Herald, has modelled his game on that of Agassi and feels "happiest" on the baseline -

"Agassi was so aggressive on the return and had good ground strokes; I like ground strokes and I try to play like him," he said.

"I like to be aggressive, to be powerful, from the back of the court, like Agassi.

From yesterday's Herald -

Happiest on the baseline, Ito said he modelled his game on Agassi, the former world No.1.

"Agassi was so aggressive on the return and had good ground strokes; I like ground strokes and I try to play like him," he said.

"I like to be aggressive, to be powerful, from the back of the court, like Agassi.

This is some thing i have noticed on the T/C Aileen Anyd's name has not been mentioned except Daren said about them all looking for recordes to be broken he said yes and Andy still ,.looking to break out.I hope he stays under the radar,let the pressure be on the top three.

I just want him to take the pressure off his back!  I see he's now saying that he's going to have to wait until the end of the season to get it properly sorted out, whatever that means.  Fortunately the 'off-season' has now been extended to 7 weeks.  What a pity he had to be saddled with this problem this year of all years.

It's the devil's own luck - he must be soooo frustrated.

He doesn't sound frustrated. He just sounds totally baffled as to why everyone is making such a song and dance about it. You have Becker saying he should miss RG and it seems like half the posters here agree. That's people who don;t have a clue what they are talking about. The fact he's going to have it rested at the end of the season should tell you all something. That is, its a niggle, nothing more. If this injury was in any way serious Andy would not be playing tennis full stop.
