nice performance from Andy.   The back seems to be still a problem. 


Haven't been watching? What's up with his back?

The back will always be a problem.

Annabel asked him about it - Andy said it is a bit sore, change of surface is difficult for him, but only has a couple more matches to play, then can rest it a bit. Also said it was his plan to play long rallies at the start - though some were perhaps a bit too long!

He was holding the back at times and just seemed to be in discomfort. I didn't think he moved too badly, but he was play a (very talented) 16 year old who probably just couldn't quite trouble him much in that regard.

I was impressed with young Coric. I hadn't seen him before. He looks like he is going to be very good in the future.

As for Andy, great start today, but I really do hope he doesn't play the dubs as well.

The coverage from Umag isn't great. The transmission breaking down twice in the third set wasn't helpful.

"The first five or six games were tough. I wanted to make the points long, make it challenging for him...He was solid, he fought for every point. When he gets physically stronger, he's going to be a very tough player. The future is obviously very bright for him.

Most tennis players do eventually. We all know the injury is something Andy is going to have to deal with, it just quite clearly is an issue on the clay.

Andy has won two majors with the injury, so he's doing all right.

I hope they can find something so he can deal with it on clay.I don't want every clay season to be the same story.

No problem. I just think the temptation for some is to not take the problem seriously, because Andy is playing and wins more often than not. Also, I think people assume Andy puts it on because he hasn't gone into detail about what the problem is, just saying it's a back injury. My response to that is that if you watch you can quite clearly tell when Andy is in discomfort with it, and Andy has said all along it's an injury. He hasn't confused the issue by saying it's this, it's that, it's the other.

Personally I would much rather Andy not play the dubs tomorrow unless absolutely necessary. It's not just the tie that matters, but the rest of the year for Andy.

Andy hated missing RG this year and said he is going to take the rehab even more seriously, so that doesn't happen again. It's tough though I suppose, because he knows it's going to be a long term thing that has to be managed properly.

I hope he can find a way to deal with it, because if he really does have the potential on clay that many people say he has, it would be a shame if that wasn't realised.
