With all this talk of match-ups, I'm starting to wonder if Andy's best shot at a slam might not be if he can avoid Nadal in the semis (some hope).

It seems his game matches up better vs Nole and Fed. So, let's assume the top 4 come the Aussie Open are:

1 ND
2 RN
3 AM
4 RF

In this scenario, he might play Djoko in the semis. Unfortunately, though, he'd get Nadal in the final, as he usually deals with Fedex fairly well.

Hmmm. We need someone else to beat Nadal.

You forget the AO final?

That's what Murray v Djokovic is like when he dodges Nadal. He ain't winning anything till he can beat Nadal again.

I'm of the opinion that Andy needs to play the top players more often outwith the slams to become more match tough, and also to work on tactics to beat them at the majors. This would mean taking the other tournaments more seriously than he has done this year. Miami, Indian Wells and Montreal would have been opportunities to mix it with Nadal and Djokovic more often but alas due to Andy's strategy of trying to peak at the slams he was nowhere near his best in these tournaments and crashed out early.

As that worked so well as far as beating Federer is concerned...

Soderling also troubles Nadal. So, provided le Sod or Del P take out Nadal early on, Andy gets Nole with a broken leg in the semi and a bus pass-wielding Fedex in the final, the Aussie Open is his.



Oh stop it lmao

All of this sounds good...but you forget that Rafa is only a "tiny" bit older than Andy and the Joker? Where is he going to go? He ain't going away soon and has consistantly beat Andy in the major events. The Joker is unbelievable for the moment, you gotta like his tennis but he can get injuries like anyone playing the game. If Rafa gets his game going and is healthy..even not, he'll still take a few more GS trophies home!!! Rafa will most probably win one or two more before Andy gets his first, and they will not be his last ones either!!! Andy's play was great in his match against a greater player!

On his day Andy can beat any of these players. Its bound to happen in a slam eventually. Does nobody think Boris would be a good mentor for him - he seems to respect Murray and speaks a lot of sense, might give him the self belief he needs on the big occasions?

Aileen , Andy does not need to be criticised all the time, I was just trying to be optamistic and not be a pessimist. I am NOT BLINKERED as you as you seem to think but try to be positive in the way I think.
If we are all going to be critical all the time what is the point in being on the forum I am sure he gets that from the sports writers in the papers. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but I am not like you and I do have faith the he will win a slam that's were we differ.
I repeat for what I hope is the final time - if you're going to respond to people's posts, then please read them properly first!  And if you bother to look at a selection of mine, I do not criticise Andy all the time.  I'm equally capable of giving credit where it's due.  Meanwhile I'm as happy for you to stick to your opinion as I am for me to stick to mine.

Aileen doesn't normally drink but some of the posts on here might just drive her to it! Whistle

I agree Boris would talk a lot of sense been there done it, i would love him to coach Andy, but i also feel that its Andys life his career , and that he is master of his own destiny and thats how it should be , when we become adults no one has the right to tell us what we should do , none of us would like our decisions in life scutinized, we make mistakes and we learn from them, right decisions wrong ones, thats what i feel Andy should be allowed to do.

Hi guys just thought i'd share this upbeat link to an interview Andy gave for the Daily Express - i found it really uplifting and encouraging. I feel it answered many of the questions (the covert and not so obvious) that were not directly posted here. Please have a read.

Thank you for that, I just think we have to leave it to Andy, he has had a good year and will I know how make the next step and be winning GS's. I'm looking forward to seeing him enjoying his matches in Glasgow, and leading the team by example. Also watched Ollie's interview and he and the juniors are going to learn a lot from practising with the team and watching how the guy's go about their job. Leon Smith commented last time how hard Andy works.

Thank you, a very positive article..I've been loving Andy's comments after a defeat of 'I need to improve' etc..no Federeresque excuses, just an honest admission that there are a couple of players who are better than him just now. It really is only a small improvement needed to step up and as i've said before playing more matches against the top players in non slam tournaments could tip the balance in Andy's favour. I was therefore thrilled to see the quote in the article about chasing the no.3 position for the remainder of this year, i feared he might go walkabout again with no slam on the immediate horizon.
