I agree with the original poster, this is a kind draw for Andy. None of the players in his quarter of the draw are really on form, and it could potentially be a week where he retrieves a little confidence. However, I see no point in trying to predict how Andy will perform here. I just hope he does well and we see an Andy that actually cares on the court.
I was surprised to see his comments on the BBC website re working with Henman. This would not be a good move!
Goodness knows how Andy will perform. Maybe getting Corretja completely out of his hair might help, since how Andy performs will be entirely down to himself. Does he want yet another disaster? Also neither Stepanek nor Baghdatis are clay-courters.
The Independent reported that Andy's intention was only to seek Henman's help in the two weeks prior to Wimbledon. That would make sense, and I can see nothing wrong with the idea, but I fear Henman could be as fed up with his coaching woes as we are and therefore be a little short on sympathy.
Please stop this nonsense about his Mother. She is not involved, read what Andy has said about her and what she does re his tennis. You never, never get rid of your Mother. When she is gone you can't replace her. Andy's Mother was never a pushy tennis parent, he went to Spain at 15 to train and she handed over the reins then.
You'll be very pleased then to read the quote from today's Sporting Life which I posted on the Cahill thread in response to your last post there.
