I'll be keeping an eye on Mr Michtell as he updates his diary throughout the tournament, but he does put forward a very straight picture of what he feels is the fav to win this tournie.

This will be another site I will pop into now and again over the next two weeks. They normally have some good interviews and "up to date" news items.

Deserves it is one thing, but getting it is another. I know its sounds obvious and I don't want to patronise anyone, but Andy must realise sooner rather than later that all the hard work amounts to nothing if he can't apply himself on the big day, ie, at the final if he gets there.

If he can make life hard for his oppostion and make them earn every point they win against him, then he will be difficult to beat, and that in a nutshell is exactly what all the top players have done who have won a slam.

Del Potro at the US open 2009 being a prime example of applying your own game to infuriate the other.

PS, I've only just noticed it, but watching some replays of the Murray V Nadal match at Wimbledon this year, it seems to me if Andy tried to start playing Nadals game, eg, playing ridiculous top spin forehand rallies shots and some high lobbing rallies, which all ended in Murray going long or wide most of the time. Is this something that many players do because they have come out of their comfort zone, because Federer did this when Del Boy beat him for that slam.

One thing he needs to improve on as well is being more clinical. Now there are many times in Andy's matches when he has been in a winning position in a rally and hits a sloppy shot when it seems a clear winner is easier to hit and more often than not he ends up losing the point and he (as well as us) are left terribly frustrated. He MUST be more clinical in his execution of key shots.

Yeah CC, I do remember several shots where a simple down the line winner was all he needed, but he went back to the player, who managed to get a lob in or something and he lost the point, or played an unforced error.

Normally he is able to use his good sense of point construction, but for whatever reason, it goes AWOL, as in the semi final match against Roddick, so many times he could have played the better option shot, but instead kept going to Roddick's backhand, it was painful to watch, but hopefully he has learnt his lesson, but yes, transitioning his instinct into clinical shot making is something I think all players have to learn from experience and there is something to be said of the fact that Murray was a late starter compared to the other top 3 in terms of turning Pro.

Half way through reading Rafas new book and I hope Andy has a chance to read some of it before Monday.

He touches a lot on mental attitude etc., we know Andy has the tools to do the job but this is an area he needs to work on.

So c'mon Andy get reading and APPLY!
