A bit surprised you're shocked JT. You're a tennis player, so wouldn't you agree that you study your opponent ahead of time? I know I did when I played. Knew their strengths, weaknesses, tendencies, etc.
Playing someone cold (no book, nothing to study) isn't all that easy on the professional level I'm sure.
No, I understand that it happens all of the time, but you have to admit that the Open has been Andy's tournament. He usually steps up big time when he's playing in Flushing.
True, but this really isn't that big of a shocker to me. Guess with as deep as I got into the game, seeing things like this all the time made me a bit used to it. Dunno.
