I think that would be great. I would love to see some of the guys play with wooden racquets now. Maybe a couple of tournaments a year - it would be really interesting for the fans to see guys playing with wooden racquets.
If Andy is satisfied with being No 10, that’s as good as he’ll be. Yes, tennis has a different profile in Britain than in the States, but the players aren’t different. I worked with Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick – they were hungry to be No 1, the best they could be. Andy Murray is the same. He shouldn’t worry about what’s said outside the lines – remove it from your brain.
The chance to play in a competition like that doesn't come around too often.I would love to get the chance to play in the Olympics and especially, I'm guessing, [because] they'll probably play it at Wimbledon.I loved watching the Olympics although it wasn't normally the tennis I watched - I loved the 100m and stuff.
Ed: So long time no see, how are things?Andy: Yeah I’m doing alright. I had a bit of a problem with my back the last few weeks but I’m feeling good.Ed: Doing some “core” muscle work today?Andy: Yeah, I was working hard today. I’ve had to do that the last five or six days since I hurt my back because I can’t lift any weights or do any running, so I’m just trying to get that stronger so I don’t have any problems with my back when I come back.Ed: In terms of comebacks, what’s the thinking?Andy: I think Rome is realistic. I started hitting again a little bit too soon to see if I’d be ok to play Estoril, and I felt my back again so it’s looking like I’m going to have to miss that. But you know - Rome and Hamburg are the big ones before the French and I want to make sure I get ready for them.
This is his most vulnerable surface but I think he can be successful. It's going to be tough for him initially.I think he can win two, three, four rounds at the French. He certainly won't be easy to beat and he is capable of getting to the round of 16 or the quarters.He needs to get out there, play some matches and get some confidence.
Yes, I found it difficult. They didn't speak too much and they didn't get on too well together. They are just two different people. I think that's quite normal. I always felt there was maybe a little competition (between the parents), so if I stayed with my mother for two nights, then I should stay with my father for two nights.At Christmas, I didn't know how long to spend with each of them. I would get stuck in the middle of their arguments. I would get really upset, and one of the things I would have loved to have more than anything was a family that worked better together, although I love my mother and father to bits.
