OK refuse to be negative! For a set and a half Andy was beating Rafa. Somehow that missed volley to give him a break, completely drained his confidence. However, we all know that you give Rafa a chink in your armour he will rip it off you.
Being bludgeoned by that incredible accurate forehand point after point, game after game, must in itself be soul destroying. Plus Rafa is at the top of his game and probably the best match player the game has ever known.
Also, feel Andy was injured. Adrenaline was keeping him safe but after THAT game it drained away.
I, too wonder how long he'll continue to put himself through this
Come on folks Goliath slew David today but who knows what the future might bring.
And, if it doesn't bring slams, so what? I'll always love Andy and his beautiful game and as long as he keeps playing, I'll keep supporting him.
That's for you Andy
And this is for everyone else who still loves him
