"Against Bolelli it was a bit strange - when I went behind I felt more comfortable than when I was in front.
I just want to get that mentality into a whole match."
This statement from Andy after beating Bolelli, and all his subsequent matches to date whilst competing in this years FO, suggest to me that Andy understands himself more than we give him credit for, my only concern with this type of play is that in falling behind his opponent (which gives him added impetus to really go for his shots) he may unwittingly be creating a challenge for himself that is just too great to summount, in essence tripping himself up and not closing the gap. Its obvious to me that Andy is a risk taker, he thrives on the adrenalin rush that these types of self induced challenges create within him. Far from possessing a frail mind Andy actually posses a rather strong mind which is very abstract - what a unique character he is, the more i learn about our Andy the more i just think he is fascinasting. This theory if proven cements the idea in my own head that Andy is arguably the most gifted and creative tennis player of his generation, and i believe there will always be this discord between the mind and body, its this power struggle that will do one of two things, it will either destroy him or take him to unimaginable heights in the tennis world, i for one hope its the latter of the two claims.
That's really interesting PT. I for two also hope it's the latter, if you're right.
Hey Caz I haven't a clue what is and isn't a tango but sounds good to me. Are there any good Andy songs I wonder? Can't think of any off hand.
