Apart from losing his serve when opening his account (although I can live with that, Andy is recognised as being a slow starter), the thing I found most regretable is that he was 4 -1 up in the 3rd and couldnt hold on, in order to win. Now that was a waste.
He has back problems and is jaded after a long (and mentally tiring) season, so we have to cut him some slack.
I was noticable he didn't come forward much, in contrast to Milos who placed himself in a very good position many times to return the ball during the rallies.
If he and Jamie hadnt had to defend their title, he may not have played doubles. There must be some pressure on him to fullfill obligations to RADO, major sponsors of Rakuten and Andy.
As for exhibiting his temper, this behaviour will never completely go away. It's part of his personality and is a coping mechanism. He explains this clearly, in his biograpy. He hates to make mistakes and cannot "forgive himself". He's much better now, Lendl "AD" than Lendl "BC". Someone else on here coined that phrase
As JohnK says, we'd do better to expect and accept it, at least since he has improved a lot this year.
It seems his biggest wish is to do well at the WTF, this could be the icing on the cake for his 2012. Just think if he were to win that
I'm really chuffed for Kei winning today,
although I really thought he'd be the runner-up, what with Milos's size (in contrast to Keis build) power and serving ability. I haven't seen the match, but I'll try to find it on Y-Tube. His style of play must have been the key to success today.
