I can see some form of common sense in Andy's schedule in terms I think given he is giving the DC some priority and knowing he has points to defend in the autumn months, I think it's a simple case he was trying to gain the points and more that he has to defend later in the year. I would like to imagine he had a rough idea where he wanted to be point wise going into the USO/DC weeks. I have no doubt he needs rest.

I don't think that him only participating in Shanghai, Paris and WTF is to be scoffed at should GB reach the final of the DC.

It would have made sense (just) if he'd skipped Cincy as that was obviously the original plan.

I don't really see the worry about points. If he's fit, then he's a slam contender and he's naturally in the Top 4

Worry too much about the points and you get a hectic scehdule

I agree about the autumn schedule - didn't both Roger and Novak do this last year? So it's not as though it's that light

I'm just hacked off that another good opportunity has gone. I know there will be more, yet again another slam is dominated by everyone 26 or over and no-one under the age of 24 gets anywhere near. But he could have arrived at New York a bit fresher

I'm boring myself now, so rant over Smile

Thanks Yvonne. I tend to agree. He could have executed better but Anderson was, in my view, playing at a level very similar to Cilic when he tore through the field to win last year.

Anderson unsurprisingly couldn't re-produce that form against Stan (and drowned in a tide of unforced errors instead). Sometimes you just run into someone playing the match of their career. The obvious response to BB's point about Fed beating him 61 61 is to point to Rafa v Soderling in 09. Rafa beat him 60 61 a couple of weeks before the French - didn't stop Soderling from playing the match of his life when they met at RG.

I like Anderson. I like the way he tries to get every ounce of his ability onto the court and the way he's introduced a bit more variety. Seems a top bloke as well. I would have been more annoyed if it had been, say Isner or Karlovic who for me do nothing but rely on their serve

Anderson's a good player as shown by his previous record against Stan (who of course is now my favourite!!) so it's no disgrace losing to him
