Stephane Robert said some nice things about Kyle as well.

Such a shame that Kyle has had to pull out of his match against Kyrgios, although the two seem to be like chalk and cheese personality-wise, with Kyle coming across as being a likeable, unassuming young man, something that can't be said about Kyrgios!  That aside, I think it would have been an interesting and entertaining match between two very promising young players.

  Probably a smart move. He's reached a realistic goal for this slam, and no doubt wants to get ready for grass. Anyway he couldn't risk a head to head with Andy just yet!

What a pity that Kyle got injured, but it would have been a match too far- a bit too soon for him. 
So much positive to be heard in the media about Andy these days, for a change.

Hi Atl,

How did you get the links to the press conferences as I went on asapsports and there is nothing from the French Open and I can't see anything on the Roland Garros site.

If you'd rather not answer (which I fully understand *wink*) would it be possible to have his presser from yesterday please? Smile

Hi Eddster, Not sure I can get them anymore. PDFs were being posted on the RG website but that area has now been made media access only and you need a login and a media pass to get them. Apparently some argument ensued with the stenographer claiming some sort of intellectual property over the transcripts. Ridiculous, all the other slams post presser transcripts on their websites pretty quickly. Some may appear on the internet, some of the younger journalists might take pity on us.

Ah thought you were in the inner circle then Atl, and that's how you had got hold of them it appears that the pdfs themselves are not password protected etc if it's possible to figure out the code....

No, alas, not part of any inner or outer circles, but if transcripts are out there I will find them!

At the moment it is a case of getting past this

The above article indicates that Andy second set dip in FSP to 36% coincided with his first time violation.  I think the two are related. Good serving relies on rhythm.  I think that when Andy realised he needed to speed up, his focus was no longer 100% on his service delivery so will have been partially disrupted causing more 2nd serves.

Interestingly, Nadal with his 35s service time was not penalised. Of course NAdal is a 9 times winner and a crowd favourite so the referee would risk great displeasure from the crowd had he tried to enforce the rule and will likely end up not participating at Wimbledon if Nadal complains about it lol

Personally I think that the GS time should be increased to 25s to harmonise with the main tour time of 25s.  Playing lung busting long rallies on clay with only 20s interval is inhumane !

No matter what the ranking, if the player is taking more than 20 or 25 seconds he should be warned. If they continue to break the rules then they should be punished. Rafa especially he is getting away with it. Why should he have the right to pick the umpire for his matches to suite himself. Either enforce the time warnings or get rid off it. It's not fair to the other players when they can see Rafa getting of scot free and they are being warned.

It would be nice if comms, who are usually so quick to criticise Andy for a bad attitude, commended him for dealing with the unfair penalty so calmly.  But at least good to see Briggs pointing to  the lack of consistency in treatment as between Andy and Rafa.
Interesting that Andy's 4 set match was only 10 minutes longer than Rafa's 3 set.
