I take your point MA, but fortunately I think most of us have at least some understanding of Andy's situation, so that was merely said in jest. If he finally decides he can't be competitive enough and withdraws before the match, then it won't be a problem for us to accept that. In fact there are quite a few not only on this forum who would prefer that he skipped Wimbledon altogether and focused on playing matches at a lower level for a while just to get his confidence back, particularly when it comes to trusting his remoulded hip, something which I can well imagine will take time to do.
I am sorry I got too serious. I did like the rewrite of Hamlet very much. I studied Richard III which I am, as yet, unable to modify suitably!
I do subscribe to a view that to win 'at one's current level' and gradually up the standard is my favoured approach for Andy. Currently I am not running against those whom I used to beat (of similar standard before my time out) for the same reason that it can cause a lot of doubt if you lose by too far!
For an Andy the enjoyment, I think, is in the battle and the winning. As you say it will take a long time. I am hoping for a good run in Wimbledon in 2019 but I doubt if it can be totally successful. With adjustments to his play, as the Fed has done (not the same ones), I am sure that he could use his skills to be really competitive.
