He wasn't unbeatable yesterday either. The thing is people were saying that losing after winning the first set only ever happens to Andy and not the other top players. Yesterday proved that isn't true. Everybody has bad days.
I was scared to come on here all weekend, fully expecting melodrama and no perspective.
It's a shame that a top player like Delpo has to also beat Novak before people can accept that he was playing well, and that sometimes lower ranked players win. The conditions here suited him, and is probably the hard-court Masters he had the best chance of winning, and he's a very good player, so being beaten by him shouldn't ever be a disaster.
As much as I wanted Andy to win that match and the whole tournament, having been beaten, I was hoping that Delpo would claim his first Masters, and it's going to be a bigger disappointment for him that he got so close in what might have been his best ever chance. Andy knows he has a good chance to do well next week and the surface there suits him better etc.
