I hear you AFT..but Andy has (and still is) learning to play the other "game."
The guy has sponsors and gawd only know who or what else he has to commit to, and I do think he's getting progressively better at handling the media.
That's why I love the old videos and stories..because to me, that's the authentic 'Andy.'
If it was only about his tennis, I'm sure life would be so much easier for him, eh?
I also think Andy's speech has improved of late. Maybe it's down to maturity and more self-assurance, but his voice has lost the monotonous quality it used to have (something he admitted himself, btw!) - and he's stopped saying "you know" after every few words, which is also a sign of a more confident speaker.
AFT:- You could sate the same about all the top 4 players. Personally I think the most sugar sweet butter would'nt melt in my mouth is Federer. I think the man is a total fraud, but hey his sponsors love him. Andy is straight forward I prefer him to sugary Mr Smug at least he is genuine.
I agree. Fed just loves the sound of his own voice ... and, remind me, what languages does he speak fluently in addition to his native Swiss-German? Oh yes - German (there is a difference), English and French, plus a good smattering of Spanish, Swedish and Italian with a little Mandarin Chinese thrown in - all of which he'll air at any opportunity - but then he's wised-up to the fact that it's a crowd-pleaser when spectators hear even just a few phrases in their own tongue when the winners/runners-up make speeches at presentation ceremonies.
