Also, have not seen it posted - wondered if anyone else noticed, it was somewhere in the 2nd set, Andy had made an error which obviously was annoying but instead of any sort of negativity, he literally brushed it away with his arm, you could see him sweep it off to the right into the imagined trash. Just as we have been suggesting for some time! He is no doubt getting the same advice from Llendl. It worked beautifully.
Was that when he sent a ball long - just like he did against Rafa at Wimbledon after which he went into meltdown? He did the same in another match recently and each time I've thought oh no, this could be it but it wasn't and I thought something has really changed in him. But I didn't notice the trashing it motion - perhaps that's a device that Mr L has suggested; I like it. Interestingly Peter Fleming [also one of my favourite comms] said that Andy can now accept his mistakes better rather than berate himself as he did in the past. This is of course necessary if he's going to play more aggressive tennis.
On the comms my favourite is Johnnie Mac - although we only get to enjoy him at Wimbledon over here.
And so pleased that little Monaco made fishpaste last night. I like him and hope he can climb the rankings; he's also a good friend of Andy's.
