Yep...isnt 21-23 the physical peak?
I agree about the big tournaments. He should make into the Aussie Open because its a 128 man tournament. I dont think he'll need a WC. The conditions out there will be hard, but Mooray has trained in Barcelona, which is pretty darn hard.
I think a 3rd round would be good for Aussie Open
3rd/4th for French
3rd/4th for Wimbers
Qtr Final for US Open- its his favourite tournie and his favourite surface.
These are realistic goals for next year, though the French might be a tad too ambitious
realistically 21-23 is the physical peak.
Andy has been guaranteed a place in the Aussie Open anyway.
It's always nice to qualify on your own though and not having to depend on wild cards. It gives a better sense of achievemant, satisfaction whatever you want to call it.
Andy likes the French Open so i'm really hoping he does well over there.
As a tennis player whose played at Sanchez Casal, i can safely say that when you go there as a teenager you need the atmosphere to be demanding and strict so it prepares you for the future.
They have all the rules for a specific reason and to gain some disciplin. They teach you that you can have as much training and input from a coach as you like, but on that court its you and your opponent, and you two only. You have to make your own decisions on court, whether they be good ones or bad ones. Youre out there on your own.
