Changes in Andy's team

Quote

I'm certainly prepared to give it the time it needs but I will be anxious the entire time to see some positive signs of confidence and consistency.  Just little hints that it's moving in the right direction.  There have already been flashes of it though so I'm not too worried at the moment.
Same here db, but unfortunately I doubt many other people on this forum, and in the tennis media, will have the same patience and understanding having already gone through the entire 2014 season as he's struggled to get back to his old form, and I'm afraid I think Lendl has a lot to answer for leaving Andy the way he did at a time when his psychological help at least was most needed.  Even if he could have stayed on as his coach until after Wimbledon things might have been so much better.  Amelie has effectively had to start from scratch, something Lendl certainly didn't have to do, but again few people seem to realise that she faces an entirely different, and probably more difficult, challenge, so all we can do is keep our fingers crossed that she's up to dealing with it.  A lot of it though will be down to Andy himself because, in the end of the day, the real help can only come from within.

Andy's defensive tendencies get endless stick . But we don't tend to complain about all the wins he gets using them.
When people say they want a more aggressive Andy they tend to mean to help him beat the other top three, and assume that playing aggressively he will still constantly be making the final rounds of slams to play them. Alas this does not necessarily follow, as taking more risks can backfire.
A significant change of style could take many months to bed in and in the short term at least mean more defeats to the lower ranked. This is the kind of calculation he has to think about.
ultimately I think he will need a more positive style if he wants longevity in the game, but it may not be an easy transition

^ Good points, althusser.  Thanks.  Personally, although I don't claim to be a tennis expert, I never could understand the fuss about Andy playing defensively since it stands to reason that aggression has to be countered by defence, and the only way to counter it is by playing equally, or even more, aggressively than your opponent - if that makes sense to you.  I can only think therefore that what people see as being his defensive play is his tendency of late to constantly keep pushing from the baseline in the hope that his opponent will make the error, which of course doesn't always work and so Andy basically is using up energy in long and sometimes futile rallies rather than coming up to net and trying to shorten the point.

Can kinda understand it, Andy doesn't follow other players as he doesn't want them in his feed when he's trying to relax so guess he could have unfollowed to avoid Berdych news...I'm just speculating.


RT @AndyMurrayFans: Looks like @andy_murray unfollowed @danielvallverdu. #quietoffseason

Was Dani ever very active on Twitter though?  You can mute a Twitter user if you don't want to see their tweets.  Unfollowing?  That's a pretty definitive thing to do and I'm struggling to understand it if the two are indeed still friends.  It makes me sad actually.

Does this have James Ward and Ross in the background? I can't tell.

Yeah thats James and Ross. When i first seen this pic a week ago i assumed it must have been Andy that took the pic.

Cant fathom out why on earth Andy would unfollow Dani unless there really has been a major falling out. As you say DB it would have been easy enough just to mute danis posts.

Loic Courteau could join Andy Murray´s coaching team

Tennis: The French coach has reportedly held discussions with Murray´s coach Amelie Mauresmo

Tennis: The British No.1 Andy Murray could add another French coach, Loic Courteau to his coaching team next year, possibly after the first Grand Slam of the year, Australian Open in January.

Andy Murray had parted ways with his previous assistant coach Dani Vallverdu and his trainer Jez Green last month and the positions of both are empty right now.

 50-year-old Loic Courteau has told French sports daily l'Equipe that he has held discussions with Murray's coach, former world No.1 and 2-time Grand Slam Amelie Mauresmo, who Murray had hired in June this year.

Courteau told that it is not confirmed, but there are chances that he will be working with Murray. He told that it is not possible for him to join Murray before the Australian Open, as he has a commitment with Julien Benneteau.

The Frenchman also said that it will be a very interesting job to work with Andy Murray, especially working along with Amelie Mauresmo.

Well Andy also unfollowed Rob Stewart who works with him yet Rob was with him in Shanghai and Miami so safe to say their friendship is intact inspire of Andy unfollowing. Twitter can be glitchy and unfollow ppl itself but I do think that my original guess is most likely reasoning in the original unfollowing Dani post.

Andy Murray and ex world number 1, Rafael Nadal, are locked in a battle for a Final berth against Roger Federer, in what has been called the Muscle Match.

Both these young men have impressive muscles, and delight in rolling their sleeves up and showing the crowd their attributes. It's not very gentlemanly - I'm not sure what Sir Fred Perry would have made of it - but it's the done thing these days, and there's no real harm in it.

Murray can claim a 19" bicep when flexed, whereas Nadal, who has been working-out much longer, has a measurement of over 20", and can even cleverly balance a tray of drinks on his.

Murray has impressive calf muscles that become visibly taut when he stretches, but, again, Nadal trumps him with his calves, which are so well-developed, that he can rattle them together as if playing a pair of Maracas.

Where Murray comes out on top of the diminutive Spaniard, though, is in the Appendage department, because, despite Nadal's claim that he is hung like a Mallorcan donkey, it is, in fact, the Scot who is, almost certainly, the Biggest Knob on the current Grand Slam circuit.

Game, Set and Match to Murray.

Andy unfollowing Dani is just low. No wonder Dani wanted to jump ship.
