Paris is the only Masters Series tournament where Andy is yet to make the semis or better.

Hoping for that stat to change this year.

Well last year he did brilliantly in the Far East - then fell apart.  Maybe this year it might be the other way round?  Only he hasn't fallen apart just yet.
Fall apart is a bit harsh - he got an injury which took him out of Basel and WTF, and lost a very close match to Berdych.

Andy breaks back? I'm still not watching yet, I stress to easily. Whatever happens I hope he meets with Ivan as soon as his Asian Swing is over, because I've a feeling his heads not in the right place.

To be fair, he's been coughing and spluttering all week. This looks like the performance of a man who's under the weather. We shouldn't judge it too harshly - he can barely run.

I really don't like the re-emergence of the pre-Lendl demeanour, however.

Not sure how he's going to be for the WTF, then. He'll have to withdraw from at least one event.

I'd like to see another Brit's name on there.

Good hold for Andy.

Apparently Ivan will be at the WTF with him

Held for 3-2.  He really doesn't look that well.  And at this level, anything less than 100% fit is going to be punished by the opponent.  I think he's doing a decent job and I still expect him to win.

He has a week off next week so fingers crossed it's gone by Basel, although it wouldn't be the end of the world if he had to withdraw from there a second year running. Although he might get more stick from Federer.

This tends to happen even now when Lendl isn't watching.  If he can keep himself under control when Lendl's around I don't see why he has to let it all hang out when he isn't.
