Andy looked as thought he couldn't get away from this interview fast enough.  Of course, as Ernests Gulbis says, this is why tennis players are boring because they don't crack jokes or jump up and down with joy when having to answer the same old questions over and over again. Rolling Eyes
Yeah, of course he just wants to get to his ice bath and grub. But Gulbis needs to be realistic, how can players  be original talking about their own matches day after day? What does he want, Shakespeare?

I got to see this one - albeit short and sweet !  A comprehensive display in tricky conditions from Andy. Matosevic, other than some nice F/H's couldn't get off first base. So far, so good.

Thanks again you guys for keeping me up to date during the Mahut match - some exciting commentary in there !

To win or not to win, that is the question....

Sorry, best I could manage Smile

Some litter got on the pitch, ballgirl tried to catch it and it flew off. Andy stepped towards it, unsure of whether to help or not I think, but she got finally got it anyway.

Pitch?

Have I ever told you all how much I love the grass court season? Well I do, I love the grass court season. We've got this player see, this Murray chap, and he's quite good on this green stuff.

Okay, being sensible now. A bit of a masterclass from Andy there. It was fun watching Matosevic looking across to his team as if to say 'What the hell have I got to do?'. Sure, Andy was broken once, but he broke straight back and never looked remotely in any trouble.

Is it me or has Andy got the best hands in the game? His touch on the ball, especially given the conditions, was sublime today. I love the way he anticipates so well too. It's like he instinctively knows where an opponent will be, never mind what they are going to do.

It's great to see Andy moving so well, he looks fantastic out there, and appears as quick and sharp as ever. He's doing well in interviews too, looking calm and confident.

Andy just looks in great form, and if he's happy with his back as well, that has to be all to the good.

Well done champ yay yay yay yay.

Andy looked like he was moving well today... despite the lack of matches ...I thought he looked like he had made the correct decision to quit the clay season and focus on grass.

The real test ,of course, will come in the latter rounds of wimbledon. Looking forward to see how he does against Nadal ...that will be a very good indicator of where his game is at   and just how much progress he has made since he last played him.

The matches today were no real test... mediocre players... He played alot of great passing shots...but also missed some sitters. Good start tho... and looks much better than same time last year.

He's not facing a worthy opponent until the semi.

I really wonder if Nadal will play. The last time Andy played Nadal was in Tokyo and beat him 6.0 in the final set!

You can only beat what's in front of you. The Mahut match could have been awkward. Andy has been out for 4 weeks and Mahut had already play a round and is a very good grass courter. Andy won in style.

Matosevic was out-classed, fair enough, but Andy still needed to go out and win, and he did. in difficult conditions.

Personally I'd like to invite Nadal to have the rest of the year off. I'm getting annoyed with comms going on about him. I was going to watch Eurosport's coverage of Andy's third round on the repeat just now, but turned it off because Chris Bradman was wittering on about Nadal. If Nadal had been on the court it would have been fair enough, but he wasn't.

Andrew Cotter on the BBC was practically weeing himself in commentary over Nadal today too. Again, he didn't seem to realise Nadal wasn't on the court.

Oh I love getting home from work and catching the last of the matches on the green stuff. To me that is summer. Even better when it's the weekend and I can see all the play. Even even better when I get lucky like today and catch almost all of Andy's match - he did well to fit himself nicely in betwen me arriving home and going back out again. He seemed so relaxed and happy to be on court - and everything else just follows. Tuning himself up nicely I thought.
