I didn't watch the match but am very disappointed at the result. Whatver the reason for his defeat the harsh fact is that none of the top 3 would allow themsleves to lose in their first match against a player they should beat. They might struggle a little but find a way of coming through in the end. If nervousness is indeed the cause then hopefully Lendl might suggest a way he could cope with this.
Again you won't find this happening to the top three. Also Lendl cannot always be present at his matches, and indeed he wasn't present in Dubai yet Andy got to the final, so that reason doesn't hold much water here.
Well I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that Andy does better in Miami.
I didn't see the match but how could it be nervousness?
Again from what I gather Andy was very passive and tentative so you are most probably right, but honestly this is becoming very tiresome indeed.
He just doesn't seem to have the resilience, assertiveness and mental toughness of the other 3 and thats what is surely required now.
Come on Andy grow up & be a professional.
Hopefully he'll go far with his brother and the net play etc that doubles brings shall assist him in Miami.
But we will have to see how it goes.
