Excellent match for Andy against a gifted player. This wasn't passive Andy it's just that Kukushkin played very well. Great work out, some lovely rallies too. Hopefully all the twinges during the game, both knees, hip, back, there seemed to be alot, will all be worked out of his system now. Great game! Great opponent!
Andy nearly always has niggles - get used to it!
Kukushkin has been as high as No.46. There's no doubt he's a pretty good player who could possibly make the top 30.
