Though Andy went on to lose to Alexander Zverev at the Indian Wells Masters, his comeback win against Carlos Alcaraz last Sunday showed us he is improving week by week.

Here's why the win could be a significant moment in his overall comeback

Remember Chang broke his left hip and came back from that to claw his way to the #2 ranking
Chang's injury was a very minor crack in the hip socket that only required crutches (no surgery, no immobilization) and usually heals completely.

(most "broken hips" are actually breaks in the femur bone and have a much greater chance of not healing well, or leaving residual symptoms)

The most important improvement over any improved shot/tactic is that he can now apparently play more than 1 tournament without needing the next 3.5 months off to recover from some new injury in the hip region.

He has been playing tournaments consistently since the grass season and is actually building momentum, not injuries.

A crucial stage in cognitive/emotional development occurs somewhere around age 7 when an individual starts to be able to distinguish his wishes and fantasies from more accurate perceptions of reality. Some will negotiate and incorporate this developmental stage better than others.
Very funny!
