Brilliant quote from Kevin Mitchell in yesterday's Guardian:
"Since Ivan Lendl came on board in January, he has given expression to aggression and power that plainly had been lying dormant beneath his outstanding defensive game, as if he were almost scared of his own talent.
Those reservations have been peeled away, tournament by tournament."
Kev's a big Andy fan, I know, but I've often felt that about Andy and totally agree with him. I remember Andy demolishing Roddick at Queens and then almost being apologetic about it, saying it rarely happens etc. Now I never want Andy to turn into Fed, but it wasn't a one off against Roddick, later in the year he produced the same form against Rafa, now this year he spectacularly took it to Fed. He needs to start celebrating
his talent and stop being "scared."
in a good way.
Also very nice compliment from Jim Courier "If I had a forehand like that, I'd play it as often as possible."
