Barcelona R2: Murray v Stakhovsky

Did someone's phone just go off during that point? Eyebrow raise. Either that or an ad on my stream.

Stakhovsky finally holds. 5-2, Andy to serve for the match.

Good summary. Very Happy

Stakhovsky nets and Andy leads 4-1 now.

I don't know what happened but at 1-1 30-0 (or 40-15, can't quite remember) Stakhovsky has just fallen apart since. The only point he's won since was from a DF!

That's 12 of the last 13 points for Andy by my reckoning (and as above, the one he lost was a Double)

Yeah, I think it was 40-15 and I was about to post comfortable hold for him but no it's run away from him.  He manages to hold serve now though and make Andy serve for it.

Andy thought he'd make things a bit more tense for us and serve a DF, followed by a 2nd serve?

DF followed by a shocking second serve. 0-30. Get it together.

Much better. Big FH down the line allows Andy an easy putaway volley. 15-30.

Another FH winner and Andy has match point. Smile

Good news.  Thanks for the links hb and tmh but decided against downloading as this is an institutional pc and wasn't sure what it would do to it.  So thanks for the commentary everyone.  Has Chela fallen by wayside then as thought he was likely R3 opponent? And will it be played tomorrow or thurs? If latter I might actually manage to see it, depending on what time it's on.
