Totally agree with you Aileen aswell as iamabritt, when an individual over hypes themself in any given situation, nine times out of ten, its not how they really feel internally - the term used for this type of behaviour is "misplaced belief". Like you and I both mentioned, it appears that Andy is trying to convince himself that all is well. When infact it is far from well. If he is still feeling the effects of his injured elbow then he should rest it completely and if that means missing Rome and potentially RG then so be it. He will have more chances. And as for the lack of motivation, this will return when Andy starts being 100% honest with himself and chooses to portray himself in the best possible light.
I know Aileen and I often agree PT but we are different people!!! A case of mistaken identity?
It's clear that Andy isn't going to rest the elbow completely so let's just hope that with physio he is building it up ok and it won't have a long term detrimental effect.
[I'm new to the forum, please excusemy bad English, especially my spelling, I'm giving my best(isn't good ).
Is there a thread about visiting some tournaments, about ticket prices, forum member expirience etc?]
Hi What, welcome to the forum. Not sure what your first language is but your English seems pretty good to me and you certainly shouldn't take spelling lessons from some of the MW members! I don't think there's a thread about visiting tournos and ticket prices but you could try asking on the questions and answers thread. We tend to have threads on separate tournaments - sometimes well in advance such as whether or not we've managed to get Wimbledon tickets. So scroll down and see what you can find.
