Ok here is where we stand if the worse case scenario happens tommrow and Andy loses (if he wins then he there for all in tent and purpsoes) then he goes to 9th and that still is a spot in London

Before Paris Andy would be 3975 Raonic 110 behind and Gregor 420 behind

If Andy  win his first round match (which he should) then he would get 90 more points

So then the worse case scenario and he loses to Gregor  then for Gregor to knock him out of London he would need to get to the final

For Raonic to knock him out of London then he would need to get to the semi finals

If Andy makes the 1/4 finals then loses then obvoulsy Gregor is out and Andy would have a futher 180 points meaning that Raonic would need to make semi finals to knock Andy out

So really one more win either tommrow or next week should in all probability be enough for Andy

Winner 1000
Final 600
Semifinals 360
Quarterfinals 180
Round of 16 90
Round of 32 45

Depends if Djokovic plays, those first few weeks are crucial with a newborn.

No I don't think Andy could mentally take another devastating loss to Djokovic.

His legs looked perfectly OK to me the way he was running round the court.  It was his bad-tempered chuntering that really got to me, and he would never have done that had Lendl been watching.  Time he took himself in hand, methinks, although he's such a perfectionist that I doubt he'll ever learn to accept that ALL players make errors, whether unforced or otherwise.  Fortunately these days he doesn't dwell on them like he did in the past but just gets on with the match.  I just wish he would do the same thing when something distracts him, which seems to happen more regularly now.

The chuntering has been interesting lately, in that there have been times when it seems to have helped in some way - I'm thinking Janowicz in Beijing - and others, like today, when it seemed to be an added distraction. USO 2012 was quite a sweary, shouty, tournament where he triumphed and had Lendl in his box to witness all the chuntering, so it isn't as if he never did it in front of Lendl - though it did get reduced somewhat. Amelie doesn't seem hugely impressed with the outbursts (particularly the swearing) and I think she is waiting for the right moment to raise this issue. She was asked about it at the USO and her answer was that sometimes she was ok with it and sometimes it was a problem (the suggestion being that if it was becoming a distraction then it was a problem) and that there needed to be a middle road, for example a balance between helpful self criticism which releases frustration, and distracting outbursts which increase frustration and take energy away from the match. Today there were times when Amelie looked pretty disgusted at what was going on, she was hiding pretty well but it reminded me a lot of her response to the time Flavia Pennetta gave the finger to the umpire in a France v Italy Fed Cup tie, although on that occasion the response was not suppressed!

Andy let Anderson dictate too many shots in the first set, pinning Andy well behind the baseline and moving forward every chance he had. Anderson couldn't keep it up though, and thankfully Andy found the right gear, but for me by allowing himself to be pushed further and further back Andy created problems for himself, which meant his already inconsistent, problematic and therefore vulnerable serve became an even bigger issue. Andy has said he wants to come forward more, Amelie has said she wants to work on this with him, so I'm hopeful that this will improve and become an added extra to his defensive game.

All that said, Andy has grit and tenacity, and with each match like this where he fights his way back I feel his resolve must surely get stronger.

Very true it's the other side of him that makes supporting him so easy, dreading the SF tomorrow sick of the sight of Ferrer grunting his way through tournaments, the fates have not aligned for Andy over the last few weeks but things are looking almighty better than they were a few weeks ago.
Fingers crossed - or as the bumbling Policeman in 'Allo Allo' would say - Fongers crissed!  I've not managed to catch much tennis lately, but hope to watch tomorrow!
