typical as usual.... Fed gets what he want  ranting  I think the organisers still think he is number 1 or somethin... they need to get something straight here... Fed is playing like a turkey whilst Andy is playing exceptionally brilliant.. ... they will be embarrassed when Fed goes out early... that's my prediction anyway... you never know with GS
 cmonandy  I bet Lendl will show these organisers a thing or two... he would destroy them
yes your absolutely right!,, well said.

Yes Deb but are any of us in the least surprised that Fed gets a night match on the first day.

“DAILY TENNIS NEWS WIRE”-
Ryan Harrison Has Big Test – He Plays Murray in Melbourne’s First Round

Ryan Harrison is being touted as the next big thing in American tennis. Now the 19-year old, ranked 84, has an opportunity to prove he is worthy of the tag as he faces 2011 runner-up Andy Murray in the first round of the Australian Open.
In 2010 Harrison became the first American teenager, since Andy Roddick in 2001, to beat a top 20 opponent in a major when he upset Ivan Ljubicic at the US Open. In 2011 he reached the fourth round at Indian wells before running into Roger Federer, he reached the semi-finals in Atlanta, and in Shanghai he knocked off 16th-ranked Viktor Troicki. So far this year he fell to Marcos Baghdatis in the first round in Brisbane, and then beat Sam Querrey in Auckland before losing to Philip Kohlschreiber.

Harrison appreciates the favorable comments he has attracted, but he is anxious to produce the goods more often.
“I look at it (the attention) as a privilege, not as a pressure, because there’s two sides to it. You can look at it as everything’s on me and it’s a pressure to do this or do that,” he said. “That’s the way that will make you panic and ultimately destroy you.
“But I look at it as a privilege to be mentioned in the same sentence as some of the guys that I have. To this point obviously I’ve done some things right to put myself in that position, but at this time people are still talking about me being the next big thing. But there’s a difference between being a prospect and an actual producer, and I know I’m far away from being what I want to be.”

Of course I'm hoping that Andy will win the AO, but hand on heart I think it's a bit soon to see any changes in Andy, believe, is one of the main factors. I think the FO is going to be were we see a change in Andy, that's the Slam I'm really looking forward to see.
I think he and Ivan need a month or two to 'blend' a bit and for anything new Lendl brings to Andy's game to integrate with his A game. Strangely enough I wonder if he won't make the French Open Final this year. Something is sure to happen when you least expect it. Just read ChrisMac's post - great minds think alike, Chris!

It's any mental change which will be interesting and, hopefully, decisive and that may take time.
thumb up to both.
