I didn't get home until Andy's match was over. Not surprised about Nadal,I posted a few days ago that I had a feeling that he would go out early. I just couldn't understand the so called experts saying Nadal would go on and win everything including Wimbledon. Clay is so different to grass and I couldn't understand why they didn't wait to see how he was at his first match before predicting that he was going to win the championship.
So pleased that Andy won in three sets and has now got his first match nerves behind him.
Yeah I said back in clay season I felt Nadal was being severely over hyped. Djoko was very close to beating him there. Nadal's best hope for the remainder of his career is the french and clay season in general. His knee is screwed and he and his camp know it. He cant play on a surface that he cant slide his movement into or his knee jarrs and locks. Injury aside ...I still believe Andy would have beaten a fit Nadal...he is a different player now compared to their last meeting on grass.
Good solid opener from Andy today... some minor losses of focus ... was always gonna win in 3 tho. Decent form for a 1st rd match.... and he has improved in many aspects since last year at wimbledon.
