Great performance from Andy today. He made a good point about the time violations - it is always the server that gets them, and it seems unfair that the server should get them if they're just waiting for the returner to be ready. It seems to me that umpires are just making a point of handing out time violations every match - it's not as if Andy's a particularly slow player anyway.
I'm pleased that Andy's playing Stan tomorrow - it'll be a very good test of where his clay game is right now.
He'll need to win in order to keep his No.2 ranking.
I was annoyed at Andy getting a violation as well when it wasn't his fault, and the comms weren't too impressed either. Unlike Nadal and Djokovic Andy has never been guilty of time-wasting. Surely there should be a little leeway anyway, particularly, as the comms said, if a player is distracted by a noise or movement in the crowd.
