Well, another racquet goes to racquet heaven, but who cares when Andy plays well? Peter Fleming was very wise on the subject I thought, but then he often is. The thing I liked was that Andy let that frustration out and then got a grip again, so no harm done. That has to be better than in the past when Andy could rant at himself and then mutter for points, a game, even two or three, about a miss that everyone else has long forgotten about.
I suspect Andy would take that fsp any day. Great stuff. I always tend to think the rest of his game seems to flow when his fsp is good. It has to help.
I hope Andy's cough is all right. I noticed it early on and was surprised they didn't in commentary. He's fit though, so I'm not going to worry too much yet.
Dolgopolov is a funny one. When he's good he's very good, when he's bad he's dire. It seems as if he can switch between the two in the course of a match too, which can't be a good sign. Andy had too much for him today though, it was clear from very early on.
Well done Champ.
