RE: Weeks 35/36 - US Open (Hard) - Andy


Interesting re any Davis Cup effect. What have been the kind of comments to journalists indicating this ?

Of course he is rather aware of the Davis Cup, but actually in any significant way ( indeed much at all ) effecting him at the US Open ? I have found that difficult to believe ( even though to be fair Phil suggested it before the event and he has lost in the last 16 ).

I tend to think his US Open defeat is more directly US Open related with such as the hot and head cold match with Mannarino and maybe a bit of playing on Armstrong and just not playing very well. Oh, and Anderson !

Anyway, much as I would have loved ultimate success here for Andy ( probably indeed more than Davis Cup success ), it was looking rather unlikely this year even before the Anderson match, and going out so early ( for him ! ) can only be of benefit physically, let's hope no negative fallout emotionally. I think it will help overall and he will be very focussed come the Davis Cup. Hope he plays better.

I think he would have done better if the match had been on the larger Ashe court, but hey ho, he can't play all his matches there I suppose. Just a pity it had to be a match against a very good server in very good form, there. He has never done well on Armstrong court. But as everyone says, KAndy played very well and he is a nice guy. I hope he can go on to beat Wawrinka.

I haven't heard any comments from Andy ref DC, so I'd be interested to see/hear those reports too. Part of me is quite glad that Andy can now concentrate on DC (abit like when he lost to Rog at Wimby in 2012 and got Olympic Gold).
Even if nothing had been said, I can't imagine that there was nothing subconscious in his head about if he got to the final turning around that quickly to prep for DC, it was bad enough after Wimby and the QF. This one's for his team, friends and country. I just hope they can all pull it off. I'm now focused on that although I must admit to having some interest in the Williams and Anderson games over the next couple of nights.

Armstrong is the one court on the ATP circuit that causes me to grimace when I see Andy scheduled to play there....as well as today he's lost to Cilic and Wawrinka on there, and was in deep trouble against Cilic and Haase previously

that being said he's probably won a lot of matches there too

Hmmm. Rain has stopped play before either of the men's matches. So it could be that the men wind up playing back-to-back best-of-five matches at the business end of the tournament, where you're most likely to go long ... just before the DC. Have to say that while I am sure Mr Murray would rather still be playing, if you're going to lose early, this does look like the time to have done it.

Anderson hasn't turned up so far against Stan.

It's really more about Stan the man than it is about Anderson. Stan plays aggressive/proactive tennis, which limits Anderson's possibilities.

One step at a time for Mr Anderson. One somehow suspected that having beaten Mr Murray (in a very exhausting match) he might have a let down against Mr Wawrinka ... and while he had beaten Mr Wawrinka four times in a row, I believe, prior to this match, the Swiss isn't someone against whom it's safe to have a "down" day.
