but doesnt Djoko's egg vacuum acclimatiser give him an unfair advantage (twice that of illegal blood doping apparently!). I hesitate to use the word cheating on this forum so I'll stop there.
As for murray's mother I agree she's played her part but its no coincidence since the Lendl "ear plug" incident she's been "too busy" to attend every single bleedin tournament he plays in
Thanks to Lendl no longer is her presence allowed to switch murray's on court persona from man to boy, I feel.
But if the weather wasnt so hot and most of Australia wasnt actually on fire I'd say he'd reach the final again
Nole's sudden rise to the inhuman level did raise a lot of questions in 2011 especially the egg vaccum thing and how he went on to beat No. 1 player Nadal 7 times in a row. Basically beat everyone in sight. I think there's a certain doping involved in ATP anyway. Andy has hinted something twice already. But anyway, people are always very speculative and suspicious but that doesn't mean they don't exist. We all know what human beings are truly capable of if anyone follows the news on a regular basis. There were a lot of questions surrounding Nadal as well since his rise to the top from 2008, but they were mostly projected by Federer fans, as it was very hard for them to digest the fact that, a clay-courter like Nadal could come along and threaten the very throne their Master was firmly rested upon. Same thing happened with Nole too, but this time, they were mostly projected by Nadal fans because they had the most interest. So while there could have been something in both cases, it goes without saying that some have problems accepting the truth.
If Andy goes on a winning spree this year, then I don’t think anyone will suspect anything for two reasons; one, he has already set the trend just last year; two, it’s been long expected. Nole basically came from nowhere especially when you take into account that he had a really flat year in 2010, but that could have set it off too, who knows. These are however only ifs and buts.
I think Judy was mostly there to give Andy moral support. I don’t’ think she was heavily involved directly in coaching or anything. She’ll probably show up only in important matches from now on. I really think it’s ideal for both. Judy can now go and concentrate on what she loves doing while Andy can grow up under Lendl’s wings.
