Yeah, as a big fan of Andy, I was slightly annoyed by his media statement that it would be a catastrophe if Andy didnt win.... hardly Johnny Mac!!
It would be disappointing of course.... catastrophe? definately not...and barring serious injury it wont be his last opportunity
I don't think that's what he actually said. Not unless he gave two very similar interviews. The first quote I saw was him saying that previously he thought there was less pressure on Andy this year at Wimbledon, but with the draw opening, the media were getting carried away, increasing pressure further. He said that the papers would make out it was a catastrophe if he didn't make the final.
The next version I read was The Mail quoting him saying that Murray not getting to the final would be a catastrophe. I'm blaming the Daily Fail for this one.
Don't get me wrong, McEnroe can be gobby, and says some silly things, but in this instance, I think there has been some artistic licence from the papers proving his original point.
