A counter puncher like Andy always fights back.

It is high time that we get rid of the depressing memory of the Cilic match in words and picture.

Good for you!

In case u don't know, Andy leading 5-2 and serving for the match. Smile

At the moment I don't trust the outcome until he has won that final point.  The best thing for me at the moment is, regardless of the outcome,  and the fact he is so obviously still a bit rusty and not up to normal match fitness he is playing without constantly clutching himself. I think the pain has gone, the rest will come back properly in time. Given how much Andujar pushed Nadal on clay recently, that was an impressive performance.

Mind you I was preparing my positive spin speech, when it was 5:1 in the first...!!!

WOW.  That was hard to watch!  The lack of match fitness showed early on. He let Pablo off the hook early on and looked so beatable but...............  he won because he is such a good player when focussed. 

Shall go an re-grout some more tiles now to calm down. What else is there to do at this time of the morning? Perhaps a piece of toast first!

For me there is the park, not my favoured activity after being awake since 4:00am, but Millie the Mongrel will be expecting her play date with her mates.

It's not dark here now, besides she has a flashing collar. I got an IPad, she got a flashing collar, seemed fair to me since I hold the purse strings.

It was always on the cards that Andujar would come out and win the first set after he trounced Robredo and got so close with Nadal. Perhaps now Gangsta will understand why so many had this win for Murray in three sets in the vote?

Seriously, Murray has to learn to start wanting to win early games to set the status of the players with him the top guy without giving himself a few games to warm up. He was playing so badly in those first five games you had to wonder whether he wanted to win. One day his magnificent fight backs will backfire? What was good was that love game in the middle after he had secured a break which must have totally deflated Pablo. Have no clue as yet what to expect from Sousa. Is he a clay or hard court specialist or neither?

Main thing for me was his attitude. No shouting at himself, no muttering, but also no despondency. Just very calm and very determined.

I really don't think it is that. I think we are all underestimating the skill level of playing at the level he does. He has had time out, it is taking time to get everything back together. His fine tuning is still quite off. What ranking did Del Potro drop to when he was out with his last injury?

That first set to me just looked like everything was completely out of kilter, it is taking him longer at the moment to refine every thing. Once he did he was deadly.

I think realistically his "minor back surgery" falls into the same elastic interpretation of the truth that is so beloved of politicians. I am increasingly thinking it was less minor than he is letting on.

Who cares if he won ugly - he won Very Happy

Don't like the sound of the first set - but from comments of those watching sounds like a rusty Andy rather than a can't play Andy.

If we forget the first set (can we do that? lol) then that was a great straight sets win for Andy

Who knows, but I do know that my 71-year old sister went into hospital at 7 am on Monday and by midday she was texting me to say she'd had her knee replaced under epidural and the physio had her up and about by teatime.  By comparison, Andy should have been running a marathon the day after his op <g>
