Yep, absolutely right. It's the "presence" and the persona- the ability to put the fear of god into the others.
There's a vulgar analogy that expresses this better but I wont post it, or I'll be banished forever! w00t

Aw go on - I dare you! Very Happy  If it's what I think it is, I've seen worse on some of the non-tennis threads of this forum!

Whilst Andy's "shock and awe" defeat of Nadal will undoubtedly have caused a stir amongst the tennis fraternity, it's vital that he continues to keep the persona going - and that means trying to maintain positive body language from the moment he walks out onto the court.  He can't be expected to change overnight, and occasional lapses are only to be expected, but hopefully we will now see more emotional control.  The green shoots of it are already there.  They just need to be nurtured.

There is a lovely interview with Andy on the ATP website >Murray Primed For Asian Swing Hattrick< He sounds realistic but positive, not getting in front of himself. Going to give-it-a-go.  The article also makes good reading. Also one on Rafa..the aftermath. :-)

Thanks for that.  He certainly seems to have the right mindset.  Just a pity he hasn't had much time to adjust to the faster courts, so fingers crossed!

The interview with Rafa is interesting too, even if it does seem a bit of a slap in the face for Djokovic suggesting that the reason he's been so successful this year is because Rafa and Roger have slipped back a little.  I think 2012 could be a very interesting year for the top four.

I note that atpworldtour.com's website has changed dramatically. As a consequence, I have had great difficulty in obtaining details that I want.

Has any other member experienced similar problems?

No - it looks the same to me as it always has.

I went into it earlier and it was all to pot - went back a bit later and it was fine - now it seems to be right off again.  Maybe they are working on it?

p.s.  Seems to be back up again now!    Shrug

Actually come to think of it, when I tried to get into it this morning it was all weird - nothing on the screen except the blue background - but my computer has been acting up lately and I just assumed it was that.  Also when I tried it a few minutes ago after reading OSS's post it was OK.

Technology is wonderful - when it works! Rolling Eyes

I wonder if any of you caught these comments from Nadal following his exit yesterday:-

London could lose ATP finals over tax warns Nadal

London risks losing the showcase end-of-season ATP World Tour Finals because of the high rate of British tax, world number one Rafael Nadal said at the Shanghai Masters on Thursday.

The Spaniard believes the 50 percent tax on players' appearance fees, winnings and a proportion of their worldwide endorsement earnings could see the glamour event featuring the top eight men being staged elsewhere unless the law is changed.

"It is really tough what is happening today in the UK with the tax. There are a lot of things that are really positive. This (tax) thing is probably really negative," he said after losing in the third round to German Florian Mayer.

This may not be the right place to post ( I need to give Mark something to do now and again Whistle )

Roddick out, Ferrer through, was a close match and I thought Ferrer would have lost, as it was a tiebreaker and we all know that suits Roddick with his boom, boom serve. But fair play, Ferrer fought hard to get that last set, and he's through!!  clap
