Whistle Get your brain sorted Andy and shift mummy off the box.
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. hammer

Monte Carlo must be one of the nicely situated tennis tournaments...anyone been there?

Andy to thrash Nadal in the semi-final and a demolition of Federer in the final! Fingers crossed

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. Smile

Is anyone watching the Golf? Mr. McIlroy is a wee bit like Andy. ...Being chased and harried by the best! Will he be able to hang on?

LL, I watched it all the way through.

Unfortunately, I had dubious feelings before Rory had tee'd off, when I learnt that our Andy had tweeted Rory wishing him the best for Sunday. This feeling was compounded when McIlroy missed an easy putt on the first hole. Thereafter for Rory it was downhill all the way.

However, unlike tennis a golfer's life at the top can continue until he is in his forties. Therefore, McIlroy has plenty of time to realise his Major success. We should also applaud Rory's humility after his failure.

Anyone know why Djokovic and Soderling (and Del P) are not at Monte Carlo?

Djokovic is resting his knee and the rest of body in general. Del Potro, I think, is resting his wrist to make sure te injury had wont re-occur. Not sure what Soderling is doing.

According to Soderling's website his next tournament is Barcelona.  They also show a video of an interview he gave on Swedish TV on 6 April, in which he looks fresh and relaxed, so I expect he's just having a break since MC isn't mandatory.

My heart bled for him.  Brilliant Major and I'm sure he'll win many times in the future.  At the end he probably wished his mum and dad had been there to console him.

For those who continue to criticize Judy Murray - it is a fact that if somebody is threatening to throw themselves off a building, the one person likely to be able to talk them down is their mother !!  So if Judy spoke more often, perhaps Andy would listen.

Soderling's also presumably getting paid a fair bit for his apparence in Estoril and as a result he's not going to play 5 weeks in a row.
