Love this pic..
Aww that is just so cute.
They were sort of having a go. It sort of sounded a bit like that. Chris Bradman asked Frew if he thought Lendl would push Andy to play DC 'because of what it can bring', you know the sort of thing they say, and then they talked about it for a bit. It just struck me as pathetic, given that we were watching Spain and the Czech Republic. There was no need to bring Andy up at all. That's why I feel that sometimes they bring him up just to have a go.
Trouble is, I think Andy is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. Personally I think it's a decision for him to make, with Leon Smith, of course, and Lendl. I could understand him wanting to play, but equally I would understand if he chose to prioritise his own career, especially now.
Frew Macmillan drives me mad about the subject, always has. Then again, he drives me a bit mad anyway.
Thank goodness I only watch tennis livestreamed on my computer from ESPN (out of necessity because I can't afford Sky). I love Robbie Koenig and Jason Goodall. Not only are they brilliant commentators but there's absolutely no bias against Andy. The odd occasion when I'm forced to turn to Eurosport has me pressing 'mute' because Frew and Chris drive me nuts at the best of times.
I can't see Lendl wanting Andy to play DC next year unless Andy absolutely feels he has to in order to save GB from relegation, and even then he should let us sink or swim. GB is in exactly the place it should be right now and there's no point in Andy making sacrifices in the hope of bumping us up a to a level where quite frankly we don't belong because we simply aren't good enough. It's high time the moaners realised this and let Andy get on with his career.
