Andy played very,very well today. It was a great start. I loved it. He looked confident, comfortable, he moved well, and he got over Fergus being a jobsworth pretty quickly. I was amused, for once, when Petch apologised for Andy's language. I actually thought Andy was restrained, and I had a feeling Petch thought the same. That second warning was stupid beyond words and I think anyone with a brain knew it.

The time violation thing is getting on my nerves now. That second one Andy got today was just wrong. What on earth did Fergus think Andy was supposed to do while ERV was faffing about with his strings, serve an ace anyway? Maybe next time Andy should, play is supposed to proceed at the servers pace after all. Either way, the time thing is taking over now. I really do think something is going to have to be done about it before long, whether it is having a clock on the court (the umpires would have to warn the crowds not to get into any stupid count downs) or increasing the time allowed a bit, say to 30 seconds, and enforcing that. As things stand it is ridiculous that most umpires are flatly refusing to apply any judgement on the issue. Personally I reserve the right to blame Federer. Everyone knows the enforcement of the rule is his doing. Everyone would think he runs the game. Oh, silly me, he thinks he does.

I really hope Andy does very well this week, although I must say I would be delighted with anything beyond the quarters. It's ages since he played Stan on clay, so hopefully he'll bring the good stuff out again tomorrow. Andy has a tough draw, but I think he'll like the challenge. Today was a fantastic start though, and I hope he continues to do well.

Apparently it wasn't just for time-wasting.   Gulbis was into all sorts of trouble - smashing racket, hitting ball into the crowd, etc.

Gulbis threw his rattle out of the pram big time. He smashed a couple of racquets, one against the umpires chair. They showed it on replay on Sky after Andy's match. I think he also either hit a ball into the crowd or kicked it too. I don't think I've ever seen a player get a game penalty before, but Gulbis did.

Sorry, I edited my post.  Comm said Djokovic got one in his match and showed his displeasure about it.  Andy on the other hand just accepted it and got on with it.

Djokovic did get one, and he wasn't pleased. Mind you, he wasn't having one of his 'Superman' days on court, so that might have contributed to his displeasure. Anyone who thinks Andy can get off to slow starts should take a look at Djokovic today. Still, he did well to turn it around.

I was a wee bit disappointed with Andy's language today. My whispered Anglo Saxon rant was far more imaginative than what Andy said Whistle. He got over it pretty quickly though, although I bet the urge to call Fergus an overbearing jobsworth cretin was in the back of his mind. It was in mine. Andy must just be a better person than me Whistle.

TJ I hope you are feeling better.  Andy won this match easily for you, let's hope he does the same tomorrow.

Ah but 3rd time lucky eh bbh.  And I hadn't realised that it's 5 years since they've played on clay so not sure how much we can necessarily read into those old stats. Overall their H2H very much in Andy's favour.  Just trying to look on the bright side of life and  Whistle to keep up spirits in face of v tricky 3rd round match.  Comms were saying on Sky that if Andy does win, it will be his best clay court win in terms of his opponents.

Andy Murray - US Open and Wimbledon champion! :)

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.

That's an added incentive for Andy - win and keep his number 2 ranking. Smile I definitely agree that umpires should give leeway with the enforcement of the time rule. There's a big difference between waiting for the opponent to be ready to receive serve and walking around really slowly at the back of the court, taking ages to towel off etc. before serving.

The last time they met was before Andy even reached a slam final and Stan was the more experienced player and I believe top 10 at the time. We shouldn't read too much into. Different match, different circumstances.  Wink
