Cincinnati 2013 R3: Murray vs. Benneteau

Quote

Benne has got a very awkward game, and it will not be easy for Andy, unless he starts quickly like he did today and dosent let bennie have a look in.

I've voted for Andy in two.

I remember that match on the clay, but I never felt sure Benneteau would win before he went over, though I may have just blocked the thought out! It was a nasty fall though, there was some suggestion that a bone had been broken. I wouldn't have been surprised. He went down with a right old bang.

Benneteau did wipe the floor with Fed in Rotterdam this year, so he's a good player when he's in the mood, that's for sure. Mind you, Fed was awful that day, which might have helped somewhat.

I think Andy moves a lot better than Benneteau and will be a bit too quick around the court. I feel sure Andy will be raring to go too, to build on what he did today.

It was at this point last year that Andy had the mishap against Chardy, but Andy was just flat that day after his Olympics triumph, with all due respect to Chardy. Overall Andy has a pretty good record, if my memory serves, against the French players - my theory is their flair suits him - so I suspect this will be another to add to the list.

Just listened to Andy talk about the match.  Says Benny is good all-round player.  No particular great strengths, but no weaknesses either.

Whoever the comedian is, it seems to happen in all Andy's recent matches.

If that's the case, then bad time for me and if Thursday's coverage is as good as today's on ESPN, then I'm stuffed! doh

Best of luck anyway Andy! cmonandy

I wondered what was going on because I was only getting yesterdays and it's usually up by now.

EDIT - According to TennisTV Andy's second on Grandstand, after Lopez/Del Potro ... then it says "Follows WTA". confused  Meanwhile LiveScoreHunter have it down as 7pm.

Yeah it was up an hour ago, but then i went to have another look about 20 minutes ago and it's gone walkabout.

I've checked three times in the last hour, including just now, but no luck.  So frustrating ...!  And it isn't on the official website either.

Jeez - talk about messing people around! lol

EDIT: Well if it was up it's come down again!  I'm looking at the ATP website too.



At last - confirmation that Andy is on 3rd. I'm going for a 7:30pm estimate.
