Thats a bit harsh methinks. He played well in general

Really you think? He managed to whack the ball into the roof a few times, he missed some really easy shots, mostly doing his drop volley thing. You say it is harsh, but I think it is better if he loses when he is not on form.

If anyone agrees with Sir Panda, I'll have to revise the headline.

I just think the media is too expectant of him. If he did injure his back, then he showed remarkable spirit and determination. Yes, he did make unforced errors, but I have definetly seen him play worse than that

Sherwood took the first set 6-4 after overpowering the young Scot - Andy's younger brother - who was 5-1 down at one stage. "

do they know anything about anything?

With the current 'quality', it could be easier than first thought though

I love Andy to bits, but he looked like 'Kevin' the sulky teenager in his match against Rusedski.  I truely believe he needs to be playing match after match to shine..... too much time off.... Whistle
