No. for me thats not nearly enough. He could have done this Lendl/mental/1st and 2nd serve change years ago by hiring a proper coach instead of his silly amateurish team thingie. What a terrible waste of talent it's been. Ok he's thrown 6 years of Slams away for no good reason whatsoever....But looking to the future
Well, well, well, you are patronising and full of yourself aren't you?
I don't see the point in going over the past, but even if there was a point you'd have to see that every year since Andy went on to the pro tour he has made strides forward. Every coach he has had, including the 'silly amateurish team thingie' - presumably that's a term straight out of the tennis coach's guide book - has added something to Andy and taken him as far as they personally could. I'm sure someone out there could go through all of Andy's coaches one by one and say what Andy did whilst with them.
Judy out of the picture? Mmmm, the last time I checked she is still Andy's Mum. I think people should lay off Judy to be honest. Is it a crime to want your children to be happy and to want them to achieve whatever potential they have? Is it a crime to want to support your child? I don't think it is. She hasn't coached Andy for years, doesn't go to all his tournaments, and wasn't there for part of the USO this year. She missed him in the latter parts of the AO this year too, because she had Fed Cup duties to attend to. The only thing Judy has done wrong is not having a couple of daughters as well as the boys. I never understand why Judy gets such a raw deal and gets portrayed as controlling. Would she have allowed Andy to go to Spain at 15 if she was trying to control him? The suggestion is ridiculous.
The fact is that not all players start winning majors at 17, 18, 19. They all develop at their own rate. Andy has won his first at 25, and still has plenty of time for a whole bunch. He's had to endure constantly being compared to the other players in the top four. He's even been constantly compared to bloody Fred Perry for God's sake. He's had to pick himself back up from four major final losses as well, when under such pressure to win. Well now he has won and more will follow. Anyone who doesn't like that can just deal with it.
