Touch the sky - and touch it he did.

Ruthie, Andy was fairly lacklustre against Tipsy last year. I saw that one and seem to remember certain people working themselves up about Brisbane and the AO. Well, Andy won the one and reached the final of the other, so it wasn't so bad.

First and foremost I just think it was nice to see Andy back out there today. He didn't touch his back once that I can recall, which has to be good, and he seemed to be happy enough at the end. I still think he was moving pretty well, and he did play some good stuff. There were some uncharacteristic errors, fair enough, but I don't see anything to panic about. Cometh the hour, cometh the Murray, or to put it another way, when it matters Andy will be ready.
I agree tj - it was just good to see Andy out there again because you can never be sure with back ops.  I did see him touch his back just once after that amazing stretch shot in 1st set but it seemed more like a gingerly testing it out than the frantic clutching of old.  So I'm hoping his big smile at the end indicates that he felt pretty good with how his back held up.  So nice as it would have been to come back with a win, it really signifies nothing that he didn't.

I seemed to be watching it streamed from Sky Italy so am wondering why Sky can't put it on in Andy's home country.  Perhaps they will show tomorrow morning's match when less other live sport to compete with it?  Might be worth checking.

I only recently invested in Sky, mainly because of Andy, so don't know my way round all the bits but the rubbish stream I was watching had Sky and ESPN in the corner.     I tried Sky Sports and found it on Channel 417 and its on again tomorrow with Andy/Stan and 8.30 a.m. our time I think.
I don't know if that helps anyone to see it on TV.     I just loved watching Andy again even if he did lose.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Yes, Ruthie had already said that but she seemed to think it wasn't on Sky TV and I was trying to let her (and others) know that I had watched it on Channel 417.

Channel 417 is ESPN, so you can't watch it via Sky unless you are subscribed to it.

Thanks for that TJ.    I didn't know I had subscribed to ESPN but, there you go, I must have done at some point.   I subscribed to Eurosport to get the Davis Cup last time but having decided, at last,  to have Sky,  I've probably gone for everything that will give me either tennis or football.

Yes.....I loved watching him too and win or lose, I'll enjoy watching him again today! No expectations means no nerves and if his road back to full fitness takes a while, then that's fine by me!  Wink

Having read all the posts I would like to add my pennyworth.
Not a Rafa comeback....Rafa played his first match against much lower players in South America.
Jo- W played very, very well and his serve was exceptional. Andy played some very good tennis and was moving very well. His serve was not firing, but I would have thought he was not working hard on his serve at his rehab as this needs him to put pressure on his back, I'm sure he will now be working on getting his rhythm back.
I was interested to see read that he was not going to do very little post match rehab to see in the morning how his body was. He seemed satisfied how the match went and admitted that he slowed down in the second set. This is very much a try out time and he will progress and be able to do more in Doha, and playing doubles as well will all aid his fitness and get him ready for the AO. I was interested to see him coming up the net and playing some exceptional shots.
As some wrote the doom mongers are still alive and kicking, a leopard cannot change its spots!!
Also pleased to see that there are plenty of the more positive beings also alive and kicking.
I for one am not going to write Andy off and if all progresses as he wants in the next week or so I can see him winning the AO and then well..........
