It could also have to do with:Rollo said:Backhand-he often doesn't play more than 2 because he doesn't usually last that long. As I've said-the day matches following night have often done Andre in.
Bingo Experimentee. Andre HAS won more Aussie Opens. And I'd be willing to bet Andre plays LESS night matches at Oz too.
Oh well. It may be just my wacky theory and no one has to buy it, but I think I'm on to something.
1) Andre lost 3 finals to a guy named Sampras at the US Open. Last I heard, he's pretty good.
2) Rebound Ace is a better surface for Andre, and he admits it.
