We missed something here.
Does anybody know how much time and many years A.M. spent in Barcelona an d Spain?
He even attended the Schiller International School and was trained on the clay courts of the Sánchez-Casal Academy.
So, he was ..'born' on clay courts like Nadal..
And now all this hype about it, and his being NOT comfortable on clay courts.
For tabloids!

Real champions play on every court, clay, grass...
Nadal, Federer, Ferrer, Tsonga, Djokovic, Berdych...they never complain!
And in case they happen to have injuries, for sure they do not have a daily medical bullettin telling the current state...if the pain is gone, medical treatment, what kind of training they go it's now happeng in Andy's case..
Too much hype!
Newspapers are full of this junk.
Nothing like that ever happened to Tim Henman, a true, classy lad!

...and now, before the US Open 2013, through his massive management and press service team. he states that the hard court is not his favourite...simply because he will not play home, in London...
I never read those things about other players...
It's one year now, and every single day this humongous team tries to invent new things, new details, nonsensical trivial things ( his sushi diet, his private jets, his Murray mints ( emulating Sharapova's confectionery brand, his multimillion endorsements, his disappointment for US Open's scheduling FIASCO......) in order to keep alive his British/Scottish fans' interests...
In US nobody cares about all this fuss...Many don't even know who he is...
The British media, feeded up by XIX entertainment mogul Simon Fuller, created him as a celebrity world champion, the world media will destroy him.
At this point in time, I am wondering WHY has London to be always the destination of the end-of-the-calendar-year Emirates ATP Race: anybody can easily guess which player will benefit more..the Scot, of course:-(
That is not fair at all....
Why Champions like Nadal, Feder, Del Potro, Ferrer, Djokovic and Berdich are not opposing and contrast this fact? Why don't other cities host this event?
