Andy at the Madrid Masters

Quote

Who is Bye?

Hopefully, it is what Andy will say to each of his opponents.

Hey simong, and welcome Smile

If there's one thing I've learned about watching Andy, it's that I take his H2H's with a pinch of salt. You just never know what you're going to get.

Bellucci has also been struggling with an abdominal injury, and pulled out of the QF in Barcelona and also Munich I think.

Since Andy joined the main tour he's played about 125 different opponents I think.  He has a losing record to only 4 players currently on the tour (Djokovic, Nadal, Robredo and Bellucci). He has a tied record against another 11 (Anderson 1-1, Berdych 4-4, Fish 4-4, Fognini 1-1, Haase 1-1, Janowicz 1-1, Kohlschreiber 1-1, Lee 1-1, Mahut 1-1, Monaco 2-2 and Raonic 2-2). Not playing this coming week are Fish, Kohlschreiber, Lee, Mahut and Haase unless he gets through qualifying which leaves 6.

So in his quarter he may have to play Bellucci and any 1 of 4 of those 6 before tackling Djoko and then Rafa if it all goes to form.

Quite a tough week I'd say.

Raonic leads the H2H vs Andy

Also we should take into account that Andy was quite ill in Tokyo when he last played Milos. If he had been well would have beaten Milos so I think we can forget the H2H could be Andy leading the H2H.

I suppose it depends what you are using the H2H for.  In absolute terms, the matches where one or both player is sick/injured count, as that is part of life on tour.  However, when trying to predict  the impact on a future match-up, it's it needs consideration.  Andy wasn't that ill, but then he almost won, so it is probably fair to say he should have won, but at the same time, Raonic still played well and deserves credit, especially as his game is still developing.

Andy was also ill in Shanghai, but he nearly won the tournament. I don't think we should start to discredit other players wins, just because Andy was not at his best/not 100% fit. I'm sure we would not like it if fans of other players did the same to Andy regarding his wins.

When was his 2nd win v Raonic?

When did he beat Janowicz?

He has a 2-1 H2H v Haase and 3-1 v Mahut.

The overall H2H's are irrelevant in this situation anyway, as Murray is a completely different player on this surface.

If you follow the rest of the thread TheMadHatter, you'll see that mistake has already been pointed out and acknowledged. Smile

Edit, as TheMadHatter has added to their post - I was just talking about the Raonic one.

No-one's discrediting those wins. Read Sparkle's post.

Aye didn't notice the 3rd page. Fair enough, but a few other inaccuracies in there as well.

He beat Janowicz in the Davis Cup.

Cool beans. That must have when Janowicz was still a pup.
