Wimbledon 2014 QF: Andy Murray vs Grigor Dimitrov

Quote

Does Mac have the time though?  Bit like Martina he has many commentating commitments (I know that Boris did too, well he was part of BBC for Wimbledon 2013 but isn't now lol), that is the main issue really

Mac does commentaries, has his own academy and is also successful on the seniors tour. I know he has implied he's interested in coaching, but I can't see him wanting to give anything up in order to do it.

I think people need to give Mauresmo time. Andy's loss wasn't her fault any more than she would have been in a position to take the credit if Andy had defended the title. They've only been working together such a short time, I'm sure they'll be fine.

Mac does strike me as similar to Andy in a lot of ways, but that doesn't always work.

I read that the problem for Andy was that 45 mins before the match he had to have a drugs test.if this true they certainly chose their moments, minutes before he was due to leave for his OBE springs to mind.

That's interesting, Michelle.

Believe it or not, when I heard Andy's being quoted (or misquoted): "f****** 5 minutes before my match", I wondered whether it was due to a drug test before he was due to play. I dismissed this thought as I felt that the testers could not have been so stupid or indifferent to events in Wimbledon.

Maybe I gave them too much credit and sense.

If he had a drugtest it doesn't have to mean he would loose  the match. It's not about having a drugtest yes or no it's about handling situations wether they are correct or not. It's more difficult for Andy to do this in this year. Not only at Wimbledon, also on e few more moments (Djoko-match the net incident, Queens etc). Hope he will work on this again...

You have a drug test just before a match. You are not realistic and totally unfair to Andy. But I expect you to keep repeating the above, that is your opinion but I think many will feel as I do.

I thought the same thing OSS because Andy was so specific about the time this incident took place, but like you couldn't believe they could be so stupid!  I can only think that, as the time was actually 45 minutes, then, like a lot of people, they didn't expect the ladies' match to be over so quickly, but I'd still have thought the onus was on them to check, literally, what the score was.

I agree with @Michelle flowerpower.  Because Andy was out for so long and having had surgery as well, his confidence this year has been lower than usual, which is perfectly understandable in the circumstances, and Tim Henman backed this up when he said he had the same problem after returning from shoulder surgery.   Lendl too said it could take quite a while for him to get it back.  So Nadal returns and starts winning everything in sight, but he didn't have to cope with lengthy rehab following what, we're now certain, wasn't just a 'simple procedure' on his back, so basically what he would have normally coped with he finds a bit more difficult this year, and Lendl's sudden departure won't have helped either.  Andy's a true professional though, and he knows what the problem is, so will be doing his best to come to grips with it, which I'm confident he will do given a little more time.
