I'm now a bugger for walking away from matches when I know AM is against the ropes.  My man indulges me by watching the tennis with me - as he said, my woman is into this, so I'll keep up - but he gets really pissed off at me when I bail out with two games to go when I know Andy will lose. 
I'm told to behave myself!  My nerves are in shreds and I'm having a heart attack and I'm told to behave!

Raonic has won 9 matches on clay this year and lost 5.  He got to the semis in Estoril, and R16 in both Barcelona & Monte Carlo.

The mind doubts, but the heart never does.

Well, I'm sure we do behave compared to many other sporting fans.  Swaning off in a strop is hardly likened to rioting with the opposing support!

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

I feel Raonic is a significant bump in the road, although I suspect ultimately Andy's got too much imagination and experience. I would expect a win in four sets.

I see Andy making the semis here.

Raonic has won 9 matches on clay this year and lost 5.  He got to the semis in Estoril, and R16 in both Barcelona & Monte Carlo.
But went out in R1 in both Madrid and Rome to Lopez and Verdasco respectively.

Having read these comments from Raonic, I'm inclined to agree with you.  Definitely a young man on a mission, and Murray would also have to cope with his 'bullet' serve.

Raonic acknowledged that the clay surface will change his strategy [from hard court] but he said that he has been preparing accordingly.

“A lot of it is mental, just the patience of it, being ready for an extra ball to come back,” he said. “I’ve spent a lot of time working on clay. It also gives me a lot of opportunities to get back into points. If my opponent hits a good shot, I can find a way to get back into it, sort of give myself the chance to dig my way back into the point.”


Referring to Madrid and Rome -

Raonic said that he has taken advantage of the opportunity to recharge during the time off.

“Everything is good, actually,” he said. “There was a little bit of a positive from that early exit in Rome, from the mental aspect to the physical aspect. The body is good, nothing is really bothering me at all. It let me refresh a bit and get a bit more hungry so everything is good.”

“Everything has come so quickly for me, but that won’t stop me from pushing towards what I want to achieve in my career,” Raonic said on Thursday. “I want more and more of success, especially in the Grand Slams and the big tournaments. I’ve always had dreams of winning Grand Slams.

I still have strong feelings for AM this time. I believe this year RG, Wimbly or USO will see Andy  finally reaching the pinnacle.

Can we presume that Cahill will be in Andy's corner during the tourney unless he is against another Adidas supported player?

I think Cahill has TV commentating duties as well so not sure how how they will fit in with coaching stuff. Think

I've read that Cahill's coaching duties will definitely end with the start of RG.

Interesting to see that Andy has been practising each day with Rafa, yesterday they were playing on Court 4 and they was a frenzy. Some photos of the crowds and Andy signing autographs on the French Open site.

I'm crazy about Murray

I'm really looking forward to RG - of course to see AM, but also to witness, what I hope will be some really tasty matches. 
I think I've reached the point where I can watch Murray in a more objective way.  It didn't used to be so!  Now, I just get a bit disappointed when he beats himself in matches he should win.

Any road up, best of luck, and needless to say, I'll watch with anticipation.  Smile

Best of luck, Andy. 
To quote Elly: "Now, I just get a bit disappointed when he beats himself in matches he should win."

Never a more true word has been spoken!  old

Andy seems to be improved mentally, but there must be room for more.
Personally, I'll settle for a solid start, NO WOBBLES or sets lost against Quallies.
That will give him confidence.

I hope he gets the GS he deserves and only his mind set is preventing him from acheiving.
he wont get any help from the media though!

Surprising! Surely Cahill comments for ESPN not Eurosport. Therefore, would be avvailable

ESPN is still going to broadcast the FO as well as every other major tournament and Cahill is one of their commentators ... or perhaps I'm missing your point altogether.
