The match is in the middle of my working day, CET 11:30, I can only take a peek at the Live Scores.  grr I'll set my box to record, but not sure if C More-Tennis will be showing this. Eurosport are showing Qatar Exxonmobil.
How am I going to concentrate at work, whilst worrying about Andy's progress?
I'm the same lashurst-i start back work tomorrow & match is on 10-30 am for me, so first day back is hard enough without my nerves being in tatters checking scores on my ATP app every few minutes. Guess I won't be getting an awful lot of work done after all Andy comes first  nervous

Well, I'm sure we all agree that we want this Millman to continue to live in anonymity tomorrow...

I'm not sure if you are suggesting I was making excuses for him, but I can assure you I wasn't.  Even if it is an exho, and even if Djokovic was taken by surprise, Tomic won fair and square.  Providing an opinion as to why a higher ranked player was beaten is not the same as making excuses.

If Djokovic really did want to win, it's entirely his own fault that he didn't.   By the sound of things, Tomic was playing well, so good for him if he's getting his act together, but reports also suggest Djokovic wasn't playing his best tennis.  IMO, it's more likely he wasn't super-motivated and didn't want to expend too much energy than it being down to an injury.  It is a reminder that even the very best players can lose to those ranked way below them and that we probably shouldn't read too much into it when it happens to them and/or Andy.  Especially at an exho!

No, I was talking to those, suggesting Novak was injured. Even top players don't play at their peak level all the time, which isn't always unrelated to the opponent either.

Pity about Dubs- Jamie and Colin, but I saw that Jonathan Marray and Dustin Brown (DE) are through to the semi final in Doha. Good luck to 'em!
