tcbm, I don't disagree, and I like your style.

However, I believe this time when Andy reaches a slam final, it will not be defeat, but the long deserved victory.

I think Andy is more scared of the man on his own side of the net than of anyone on the other side.   

I'd agree with that.  I think Andy has a great fear of failure and that therein lies his problem.  Unfortunately it's something a psychologist could possibly help him with, but if you don't have the belief that they can help you, then there's no point in consulting one - and, without going into details here, this is something I too can relate to.  If you don't have faith in the remedy then you're unlikely to get a cure for your ills.  We can just hope that Andy somehow manages to get on top of his inner demons through other means than a sport psychologist.

Me too, its just around the corner for sure, he easily is as good as the top 3 if not better. Andy has learnt from his failures , if you can call them that, and keeps taking steps to his goal, even if its small steps at a time.

This news doesn't surprise me. I believe Andy's too proud to go down the sports psycologist route. How is he going to overcome his demons without outside help, though? Will he win a Slam? It pains me to say but I'll believe it when I see it.

Sorry, robbie, I've been here for two minutes and I'm already confusing the issue. To clarify: I'd LOVE to see Muzz bag a major but I don't see it happening. His three Slam finals were blowouts, he was a bag of nerves. I've seen nothing to indicate the forth will be any different.

What would you need to see to prove to you that the fourth would be different?
How long do you think he shall remain a bag of nerves for?
Even the most basic of us gets used to things eventually, and when we do things become easy second nature.
That's life.
This year Andy got to the semis of all the slams..
Next year it should be even better.

I truly believe that Andy will win a GS next year, he knows what he has to do and will everything he needs to do to reach his goal. He has to do what he thinks will help him, what ever others may think.

Next Year is Andy's year. He knows what he has to do and he will do it. I think Fed will be a challenge, the other two are warn out mentally and physically.

Good Luck Andy we are behind you.

What would I have needed to see to prove the forth will be any different?? Ooh, let me think - a SET or TWO perhaps!! Did you watch his three Slam finals? How did he improue from one to the next? Please tell me.

Of course Andy KNOWS what to do but his nerves don't allow it. Have you ever been so consumed with fear that you didn't know your ass from your elbow?! Clearly not. Nerves affect everything - movement, co-ordination, breathing, thought process... Oh, but his next Slam final will be different, eh??

^ Am sorry, but I don't agree that he can learn to be more ruthless.  I'm really hoping to see him win a Slam - he deserves it, what with all the talent he has displayed.  However, for whatever reason, he seems always to be the bridesmaid and never the bride. I don't see that changing now.
  My sentiments exactly, Elly!
