I predicted he'd lose a set, but win in the end. 
Would have been nice with 3 straigth. Its gonna get harder.

Maybe this Roger=Vasselin person will be easier for Andy to beat, otherwise ... Whistle

I missed it too thanks to computer crashing!

He's playing Edouard Roger-Vasselin.  Malisse retired at end of 1st set.

From the bit I saw good: coming to the net a lot, saw v. nice drive volley Smile
bad: serve right off, Harrison getting loads of first serves back WTF? Did he take pace off in order to avoid the dreaded second serve? Anyone?

Andy I think was suffering from nerves at the start, but he was able to turn it around. He will go into the next match with confidence. He hard the hardest opponent to face of the top 4, and both Nadal and Federer didn't find it easy at the start of their matches. Things will be get better for Andy, apart from his next opponent he will be facing players he knows well.

I agree, Michelle. And he did well to keep a lid on his frustrations - which is good to see.

This worries me.  He must be conscious of having to do that now under Lendl and by continually trying to  suppress his feelings he could be distracting himself.  Nobody breaks a habit of years in a few weeks so I don't think Lendl should be too hard on him right now.  The occasional explosion might be necessary for a while yet.

Don't think this is all down to Ivan. We've all noticed wee changes in Andy's behaviour over the past few months since Cahill came on board.
This relationship is very new. Andy may well be trying too hard. But that'll even out into a happy compromise over the months. I'm sure of it Smile

Great - computer crashed at start of final game!

I missed the whole of the last set.  I had series linked it on my Sky+ and was watching it about an hour behind real time.  Eurotoss has the schedule in many small sections.  One of the sections finished at the end of the third set so I went to play the next section only to find it wasn't there!  I have now manually set all future AO recordings so it doesn't happen again.

just finished watching,  catch up ,well done Andy , he was bound to be nervous, as you say j35 the pressure is enormous for him as always, he was never going to play his best at the begining of a slam. Go Andy yay
