I love watching him play like that, all the variety. Well done Andy, now prepare for the big W.

Perhaps he should play Halle next year.

I love how Andy has been mixing renewed variety with continued positivity.

Pleasing on the eye as it is ( and clearly pleasing to Andy ), I was one who was very worried about all the talk ( and indeed now action ) of more variety.

Having originally loved Andy's variety I was an absolute convert to the Ivan Lendl continual controlled agression way including cutting down on much of the other "stuff". It was seemingly the only way to win the absolute top titles.

Now I'm a bit confuddled

I think the ongoing word should be "positiivity". Retain the Ivan positivitivity, Andy, but if you can do so with also positive, effective variety that you are more capable of than almost anyone else, that might work

 As with everything it is getting the balance right and on grass he should certainly be leaning towards the more variety method of play.

 I think variety could be as much "playing the right shots for the situation" as "varying your shots" i.e. not just constantly playing the same style of play just because it works on one day

For example, from this year's slams:

- Serving big against Ferrer at the French, despite serving percentage tennis against Chardy (trusted his ground shots to outlast Chardy, against Ferrer he needed the cheap points)

- In Australia constantly using his slice against Kyrgios, using it sparingly against Dimitrov (Dimitrov doesn't mind playing touch tennis, Kyrgios though likes more pace on the ball)

I'm glad Andy has realised that he can still use different parts of his game, it makes him more interesting to watch as well rather than just constantly trying to ape Novak
