I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Of course, you could argue that Haarhuis couldn't hit an overhead to save his life, but that would be churlish.

On the subject of Haarhuis (who's Dutch), was it Nick Bollettieri who described him as 'the best little Haarhuis in Amsterdam'?

To get back on topic, it seems crazy that so many people believe in Andy, but he doesn't seem to believe in himself, for whatever reason.  Frown

That is it in a nutshell. Maybe he is having a bit of a crisis with his lovelife or something.

If you want my honest opinion, he's having a crisis wondering if he wants it for himself or for others.  I know that sounds mean, but I spoke to a tennis watcher today who does not participate in forums, does not have an axe to grind, and he said 'Federer has an F on his clothing for Federer, Andy has an 'M' for mum.... dicscuss....

More media speculation - how the heck does anybody know what Andy's doing right now apart from those close to him.

OK, so far we've had Lendl, Connors, Cahill, Brett and Rasheed ... next up, please!

Thanks for that video clip btw.  Connors was a great favourite of mine.

I heard Mark Pechey say on Sky the other day something like 'trust me, he WILL appoint a new coach very soon'..when pressed for more info on the matter he unfortunately declined to divulge anything else but it was obvious he knew more than he was willing to tell. The only appointment that would make sense to me is a slam winner or someone who has coached a slam winner, Connors is so naturally competitive that he would try to instill in Andy the desire to win titles again..I get the feeling that Andy has been trying too hard to peak at slams to the detriment of the other tournaments. Only problem with this is that the bashings he has been taking in the lesser tournaments dents his confidence too much and affects his performances when the slams appear on the calendar. Federer for instance schedules his year in the same way but can handle the knocks and defeats because he loves himself so much and has the confidence to shrug it off in time for the majors. As for the clay, it's a mystery to me why Andy hasn't performed too well on it as I think his varied game should be a decent fit for that surface.

If Rasheed can survive Monfils he can survive anyone.

Rasheed makes me laugh. Whenever the camera pans to him, when Monfils is playing, he has a  WTF look on his face Wink
Oh please for someone with some fire in their belly....not Lendl then.

I hope he didn't say 'trust me' - that's a word beloved of politicians! Smile   However, if Petchey is indeed privy to what's going on in the Murray camp, then thank goodness for somebody with a degree of descretion in all this furore.  For all we know he might be set to make a return as Andy's coach ... now there's a thought, although would he have the dynamism to fire Murray up?

One thing occurs to me, though, and that is that after Maclagan's departure Andy said repeatedly that he was in no rush to appoint another coach because he wanted to make sure he got the right one.  Offers were allegedly received, but from whom nobody knows.  Now, if the media is to be believed, not only is Murray in a hurry to appoint one, but offers of help have been pouring in.  I hope, if he is desperate enough, that he doesn't throw caution to the winds, but equally I hope we aren't still having this debate come Wimbledon or beyond.    

I do agree with what you say about Andy now trying to peak at Slams.  I think it's time he learnt that the only way he's going to have any chance of winning one is to do what every other Slam winner has done, i.e. go back to basics and play minor ATP tournaments, no matter how boring they are, and get into the right frame of mind that will enable him to beat the lower-ranked players in whatever tournaments he plays in.  Life isn't about always picking the biggest cherries on the tree, and playing top-class tennis cannot be turned on like a tap.

Also you aren't alone in wondering why he doesn't succeed on clay.  It's known that that surface because of its slidey nature can aggravate his bipartite knee-cap, yet he trained on clay for two years, and so it seems fairly logical that he'd have found a way of playing successfully round the problem.
