Roland Garros first round Murray- Tatsuma Ito

Quote

breathe in breathe out... anyone got a sick bag? Very Happy

No, but I have my resuscitation kit ready, but am hoping that Mr Magic appears on court and I will have no need for it.  Only positive to being signed off for a couple of weeks is that I can witness the whole match live and not have to check lives scores at my deck!!!   Negative thing, on double anti biotics which equals "nae drink" which I always find gets me through an Andy match!!

Come on Muzza, all guns blazing right from the start and do this in straights so as not to aggregate that back!!

Good Luck Andy, e drugging crossed for you.........

Well the other matches have gone much quicker than I originally imagined, guess I should've factored in that it was the 1st round of a Slam (so more likely to be one-sided than the middle of a week in a Masters).

Although Benneateau has just been broken back in the 2nd set. doh If that finished in straight sets then somewhere between 3pm-4pm seems the best bet for now. Unfortunately with it being five sets it is so unpredictable that if it were to go to 4 or even 5 sets it could be past 5pm before Andy's on court.

For anyone eagerly waiting for Andy right now I'd say have an hour's break, get some lunch (or do some work if that's where you are right now! :P) then check on the Zverev/Benneateau match at 3pm and hopefully we'll have a clearer picture to when Andy should be on. I'm going to predict 3:30ish.

Edit: Bit of a crazy match going on between Zverev and Benneateau. Zverev came from 1-4 down to 5-4 up, serving for the set. Had two set points at 40-15. But got broken. Now 5-5 in the 2nd set. Neutral

As for the Commies, they were talking about Andy a small bit during the final set of Djokovic's match vs Starace. And I completely agree with them. At Roland Garros, right now, there are only three serious contenders. Andy is quite a distance away from them on this surface. On the other two I definitely feel it is much, much closer between the top four, and the labelling of a "top three" is uninformed, disrespectful or just coming from biased/utter thick "fans", especially given people were still saying that when Andy was #3 in the world not so long ago. But certainly on Clay he is some way behind the top three and hopes of winning RG are very slim, right now at least.

The comms on ITV are really good, such a change from the usual Fed luvvies on Eurosport, where Andy bashing is a regular form of entertainment for them.  Would totally agree that Andy is not a contender for RG, he is a long way off, his time will come when the tour moves to grass and hard court.

Zverev goes on to take the 2nd set on a tie-break. Damn. Looks like 4pm at the earliest then. Gives me a bit more time to job-hunt I guess. lol

Benneateau has a BP in the first game of the 3rd.

Benneateau takes 3rd set 6-4 and has BP in first game of the 4th.

Benneateau breaks.

So Andy should be on court around 4:30pm I hope.

Edit: Benneateau breaks again and now leads 3-0. Between 4pm-4:30pm looks certain now.

Edit: I say that and Benneateau gets broken back to love. ARGH.

Winner of Andy/Ito match plays Jarko Nieminen. 3-6 6-2 2-1 when Andreev retired.
Dolgo out of Andy's quarter. Stakhovsky won in 5 sets, started yesterday, finished today.

Benneateau to serve for the match. Fingers crossed he gets this done and 4:30 is looking good.

Benneateau wins 6-2, 6-7, 6-4, 6-4.

Andy will be on court within the next 10 minutes folkes and will probably be starting somewhere between 4:20 and 4:30pm.

Benneteau wins.  He's done well to be playing at RG after his nasty fall at MC.

Right, kettle on and livestream to be found - Nadal on my tv.  He needs to get that match wrapped up asap yes

Andy's only just stepped on court. I'm sure they'll swap over before he starts.
