Thanks for the comments from those who actually saw the match  The 5live extra comms nearly drove me wild by talking about anything but Andy playing! It's just like being blind Its the score I'm after
Now for the second round no time for dreaming yet

Not a problem he has bags of experience he can draw on if it gets tough in the QFs, I think its more important he is fresh if he gets there.


When he's just back off an injury, yes it is.

I hope someone will put the video of the match on.  I went to bed and left the tv on so if I woke up I could see Andy playing, but they showed him for one second and that was it. So I looked at the live update on my phone.  I felt without actually seeing the match that the third set Soeda seemed to come alive, he hit more aces, won more games and I don't think it had anything to do so much with Andy, but more with Soeda raising his level.

Been out most of today but I have watched the match. I thought Andy played really well considering he has not had a lot of games previous to the AO. First two sets were brilliant and he was never under any pressure in the third set. I was amazed how most of the players managed to play in such heat it must have been really hard. Melbourne weather is notorious you can have four seasons in one day. Hope it cools down a bit and the players don't have to cope with such hot weather.

What a great way to spend breakfast time. Andy was really impressive, hitting strongly and cleanly, some awesome winners. Great to hear the comms purring! First 3 setter since September - onwards and upwards!

Andy looked superb today. No sign at all he's not had many matches. But in a way he's at almost the same stage as the other players because they have all had a break, just Andy's been a bit longer.
He'll get better every match he plays so by the time he plays Fed in the QFs he'll be 100%. I can't believe Andy is 8-1 to win this.

Skybet odds:

Novak Djokovic 8/11
Rafael Nadal 3/1
Andy Murray 8/1
Juan Martin Del Potro 10/1
Roger Federer 18/1
Stanislas Wawrinka 35/1
Tomas Berdych 35/1
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 40/1

Hey Pinnochio. In your *cough* professional opinion as a *choking on another cough* Back Surgeon.. what's your views on his recovery and current form?

 Eyebrow raise.

This is like a broken record, we know Andy will get better.  zz If he got worse, I'd be incredibly concerned.

I can't comment professionally on Andy's back since I wasn't his surgeon but even a lay-person can see he is moving freely. His back will not be an issue.

I note Delpo struggled against a qualifier. Took him over 3 hours. Delpo won't be a contender here IMO so there are only 3 players that can win this.

The big unknown left is Andy's recovery time - he'll find out tomorrow.  I agree, if Andy gets to the Qtrs he'll be well played into the tournament providing the recovery time doesn't get harder and longer with each round
