I was more suprised when he said he was going to play it! Wonder if the wrist injury is real?
'Course it's real........I noticed him looking at his wrist and flexing his fingers during his match at Rotterdam on more than one occasion. I hope he gives it enough time to heal properly before his next tournament. It could hamper his training somewhat though!

Think Andy needs to take a  short break as he has had a niggle with his wrist for a little while now. It would be awful if he had a reoccurence of his wrist injury after playing Davis Cup a couple years ago.

Have watched a replay of Andy's semi final with Ferrer at the AO. There were so many long rallies and they both gave their all. It is not surprising that they both went out in the first round at Rotterdam.

Pleased about this. I do NOT want to see a repeat of his Rotterdam performance. That was tragic.
He should perhaps have left Rotterdam out of his schedule, given its proximity to the AO.  There will be plenty of other opportunities for playing doubles with Jamie - and obviously he couldn't just have played doubles and not singles there.

Was it his left wrist?
I'm asking the same question because I'll be more concerned if it's the right one which he hurt so badly before.

Unfortunately we can only wait now until we hear something from Andy himself - and that could be quite a while.

Do hope this is a "diplomatic" wrist injury and nothing serious Frown

Think thats a great way to put it, I am sure all tennis players have "diplomatic" injuries from time to time especially if they just need some time out.

Does anyone know whether Alex Corretja was in Rotterdam?

It appears as if the relationship between AM and AC is at an end. If this is indeed the case, Andy desperately requires a full-time coach NOW. Otherwise, it could well be a downward slide for our Andy. I hope I am wrong.

I never saw him and I do remember wondering, at the time, why that was...

Didn't I read somewhere that the Corretja input was only going to be for 6 months?  And, wasn't that said around the time of the US Open?

Hope the injury is not too serious. Perhaps it's better to have a break as well.  We all hope Andy will
get better and have a rest.  Looking forward to the hard courts in USA.

The test here will be whether or not he plays in Indian Wells.  Players can't wriggle out of Masters so easily.

I was more concerned about his absence in Oz - the one tournament he really should have been at as Andy's coach.  In fact I'm sure it must be practically unkown for a player's coach not to turn up at a GS.

I'm sure it was announced officially at the end of last year and that the arrangement would be in place at least until Wimbledon.

EDIT: Just checked.  The announcement was made on 21 December.

So, got another three months to run, unless something has changed in the meantime ...

Be interesting to see what happens before IW - provided Andy feels he has sufficiently recovered to resume training and heads off to the US.

I repeat. Andy needs a fulltime coach now!!!!!!

Aileen, I agree Corretja's absence at AO did trouble me at the time. It is unheard of for a top player not to have his coach by his side at a slam.
