Cincinnati R2: Murray vs Youzhny

Quote

Youzhny was good yesterday, don't get me wrong, but he was helped quite a bit by Gulbis, who was a shadow of the man who beat Andy last week. If you want a model of inconsistency, then Mr. Gulbis might be the place to start. He was poor yesterday.

I don't think the time of day will come in to it much. I don't think it bothers Andy anymore than it bothers some of us. Trouble is, if he's on early we worry it's too early, if he's on late we say he hasn't got a lot of time between matches. If it's in the middle of the day it's too hot.

I think Andy will be sharper this week. Those doubles matches should have helped. Losing to Gulbis won't have gone down that well either, I'm certain, although Andy did warn people that he wouldn't be at his best in Montreal. I think he'll be motivated in Cincy.

I like Youzhny, I have a bit of a soft spot for him, racquet smashing and all Smile. I just feel that Andy will have too much game for him, and will be keen to make a good show of things. If Andy starts off a bit slow, Andy in three, but if he comes out playing as we know he can, Andy in two. Either way, I can't see Andy losing this one. Don't you dare Murray! Smile.
I felt after listening to Youzhny's interview after his win that he doesn't believe he can beat Andy.

I have to be honest, I didn't see his interview, but I'm not all that surprised. Youzhny didn't come across at Wimbledon as if he thought he had any sort of real chance - not that I'm complaining about that Smile.

Colonel is a good guy, but he is right in thinking that he has no chance vs The Tradesman. It will be the same story as their Wimbledon meeting.

cmonandy   & bless him again for Wimbledon.  My mother & I got to see him win that (on TV) before she died last month at 98, on top of seeing his great successes last year!  Thank you, Andy, you were a huge part of her life for years, your upcoming matches were always of great importance to her, giving her always something to look forward to.  Your successes were definitively one of her greatest joys.
hug Sorry for your loss. Good to hear that she was able to see Andy lift the Wimbledon trophy before she passed away Smile.

oh adb so glad your mother was able to see Andy win Wimbledon given he meant so much to her.  Thanks for telling us that.  Hope you're doing ok.

Re Andy's early start I don't think it matters at all to him now.  But where it might make a difference is in the likelihood that there will be noone there and we know Andy plays better with a decent crowd.  I don't think it will be a significant factor but those early matches can be really dead and it must be difficult even for a professional to come down from the giddy heights of the Wimbledon final.
