Nobody but Andy knows what he has been through after extensive surgery and rehab. Sometimes it all comes crashing down at once. It was just announced that he is withdrawing from this tournament and Toronto. He cited needing rest. I hope he wasn't feeling pain again after that long match.

Scot

Why shouldn't he have cried? He's human, isn't he? At least he didn't behave the way Marin Cilic did in the Wimbledon 2017 Final. Andy only used his towel to wipe his eyes- Cilic used his as a hanky - he actually put the towel up to his nose and blew his nose loudly. Surely everybody knows you don't do that.

Gary Moser

Just curious: why did it take you 5 full months to imply that blowing one's nose into a Wimbledon towel is INHUMAN?

Scot

My computer was bust, Gary. Plus I've just moved house and I had to wait to get my phone and Internet put in. At least when Andy cries, his nose doesn't go all snotty.

Scot

And in answer to the main part of your comment, if Cilic needed to blow his nose while he was crying, he could've waited until he got off court!

Ever? Or, by chance, it didn't THIS ONE TIME?

While thousands of cameras film non-stop the snot dripping off his chin. MUCH BETTER!

Scot

Hi, Gary. When he cried after he lost the 2012 Wimbledon Final, he didn't go all snotty - and I don't think he did in 2016 either.

Scot

And it wasn't the Wimbledon towel Marin Cilic used to blow his nose at the 2017 Final, it was a white one.

Ummm...wouldn't most people --- Wimbledon officials and hard-core fans in particular ---
have been much more offended if Cilic had used the Wimbledon towel instead of a white one?

[ I mean, a white towel can be considered just an overlarge white hankie,
whereas a "Wimbledon towel" IS ALWAYS going to be a "Wimbledon towel", as opposed to...a towel ] ]

Scot

I think you could be right, Gary.

Scot

I still think Cilic should've used a proper hanky to blow his nose when he cried on court.

Scot

I think it was just intense fatigue, Ricke.

Scot

Hi, Gary. In reply to your comment in July 2019, that sort of behaviour is just NOT appropriate. Yes, cry if you're losing - by all means - but blowing your nose loudly into a towel on Centre Court? Come on guys! That's just NOT on!
