Oh, you're talking about the review? Thought you were referring to celebrating his successes by having pictures of his trophies put up. Yes, there is a review of the year planned by one of the team.
The same as every other news driven website - the latest news goes at the top. Anything is possible but this method has been the way since the start and I think it's right.
It's not at the top anymore so I don't see the problem. A new comer will hopefully have the intelligence to see that each news article is listed based on date and time and therefore understand why it's there.
Does MW really have to follow every other news driven website, especially when that news, whether it's positive or negatives, is weeks out of date?  Anyway I'm to glad to see it's been pushed down now by the current event.

I remember that but I'm still sure you said why that would be the case.

@Mark
Are there some "set in stone" rules for the lay out of MW then?

This headline is a very negative introduction to MW for any newcomers.

I thought we agreed that someone would write a review of Andy's year. It's December, the off season, surely a good time to take stock, look at how Andy has done this year and look forward.

I can understand the site heading up with match reports during the tennis year, but we are in the middle of a tennis hiatus so why not change things temporarily? This headline is a very negative introduction to MW for any newcomers.
Before the start of the season, let's have an all singing, all dancing, bells and whistles article as the first one you see cmon yeah

You made that suggestion and all I said was that you didn't need to worry about it being the top story for much longer.

But you told me by PM you were going to change it to something which celebrates Andy successes this year ...

This is how a news driven home page works and how it should work.

It would be really nice NOT to be greeted by this headline every time we log onto this site. Rolling Eyes
Any chance?

Aileen, the thing is though, it strikes me that Andy is ready to be pushed, and wants to be. Soon after winning the USO he was talking about the future, the possibilities opening up for him, and he knows the hard work he will need to do to get there.

I took what Lendl was saying as its all about making improvements and refinements to the game Andy already has. I think it was purely the headline that mentioned 'change' because Lendl didn't.

Apart from becoming more aggressive, more attack minded, I'm not sure Andy's game has changed a huge amount since Lendl came on board. However, I can see improvements, Andy's forehand, his second serve, the way he is stepping in and taking the ball on, his ball striking being so much harder. I think it is developments like that that Lendl is looking for with Andy.

If Andy does improve over time in the way Lendl suggests he can, he will be one scary prospect for opponents. Can anyone else hear Tsonga tearing his hair out?
Thanks for the reassurance TJ.  I'd also like Andy to develop more of a killer instinct when it comes to closing out matches, something he often seems to have problems with these days, and to improve his level of consistency in all tournaments whether they be 250s or GSs.

Absolutely correct and I was over the moon to be proved wrong

Andy is not out there to prove you wrong. If that were the case, we would be living in a very vindictive world. In any case, you should know that indoors are now playing at the same level as outdoors; that is speed-wise, so what you said earlier on, doesn't really go with what it actually is.

If I remember correctly you also said Andy would never win a Slam and here we are. Let's start owning everything you've said so far. You will surprise yourself.

I said before the WTF that Andy hadn't proved himself indoors the way he has on outdoor hard and grass. Andy was playing Fed whose best surface is indoor hard so no real surprise he was horsed. Reaching the semis was a good result for our Andrew. Can't wait for the Aussie Open which is Andy's best tournament IMO.

Murray v Federer. Passion v complacency. Sporting v unsporting. Rugged v effeminate. Honest v bullsh*t. Humble v conceit. Swear v snarl. The only mystery is why so many can't see it.

Because the world lives on mediocrity. Buffy the Vampire is literally our life. lol
