Good point but I do think he was frustrated by so many ues today. I guess that is a symptom of rustiness and he was probably hoping after playing so well in practice that he'd oiled more of that rust already.
Andy himself has said that playing for points under tournament, or near-tournament, conditions is a whole different thing to playing on the practice court and that he needs to be able to feel that intensity again, but then it's often easier to say what you know to be true than it is to put it into effect, and I can imagine how frustrating it must be for any sportsperson to come back after a lengthy lay-off, especially when an operation has been involved, and having to learn to walk before they can run, so to speak.
I just hope that Andy can keep reminding himself just how far he has come over the past few weeks, given that it really isn't all that long ago since he was talking about possibly having to skip the AO. I'm sure though that Lendl and his team will definitely try to keep that uppermost in his mind, and the fact that he's so much stronger psychologically now should be a great help.
Don't be too sorry re Andy's defeat LLeyton Hewitt who has been struggling to get back to form from I think it's 2 hip operations should inspire Andy's own struggle to get back to full competitive form
Left hip, 2008; right hip, 2010; five major ops over the last two years to reconstruct the badly arthritic and misshapen big toe of his left foot and ignoring medical advice that he should quit the sport, yet, thanks to sheer guts and bloody-minded determination, he's still going strong. What a legend!
