On this occasion I'm supporting Andy, I saw the whole scenario on TV. I wouldn't call it an outburst of the infamous Andy tirades, somebody had to say it the way it was, he wasn't rude to anyone but businesslike and straight to the point. Nothing wrong with that imo. It was a good job he discovered it in the first place and for he and David to double check after the 'repair'. In the tunnel after they went off for a second time, it was Andy who took the initiative and suggested they resume play on another court with David's agreement.

Ricke

Yes, after what the directors tried to pull the other day with the rain I am glad Andy showed some balls. Excuse my play on words.

Jenny

Ricke, I don't know whether you read this, but it had me laughing my head off, this is exactly what happened! I know if David had been more fluent in English and in Spain, he would have done exactly the same as Andy.

Haha, The USTA has taken the video down. Copyright reason? Forget it. They must be embarrassed.

Go to

to watch it.

The funny part of the episode was watching Ferrer next to him, stoically shrugging and saying "that's life", your typical Spaniard ever so used to official blunderings...

Andy was absolutely right. As a professional he is entitled to a safe working environment. A slippery hard court is devastating and can ruin a career, as it almost did for Justine Henin. Besides I can't figure out why you Merkans keep on knocking Arod all the time. If he had beaten our Swiss genius Roger at Wimbledon (boy, was he ever so close, I vivdly remember his 3rd break point, that floating high passing shot he wasn't sure wether to take or not), he would now be a national idol!

Jenny

That was comical, I've seen him act like this before!

Dee

Thanks. It worked. I thought it was the umpire who said " that's life".But Ferrer was so calm --- what a contrast of character

Jenny

Hi Dee, LOL I think resigned to the situation is the word!
