Wimbledon 2014 R2: Andy Murray vs Blaz Rola « on: June 23, 2014, 03:29 PM »

After stamping his authority to open the tournament as defending champion on Centre Court with a 6-1 6-4 7-5 win over Belgian David Goffin, Andy Murray next comes up against another up and coming player, who unlike Goffin has sneakily progressed his way up the rankings, at which he currently stands at 92 in the world, a Slovenian by the name of Blaz Rola. Rola has had a good 2014 so far, winning the Challengers title in Guangzhou and qualifying for his very first Grand Slam in Melbourne, where he reached the second round, losing to Martin Klizan in four tight sets. He has also reached the final of another two Challengers in Panama City and Sao Paulo, losing to Pere Riba and Rogerio Dutra Silva respectively. He also made his debut in the Davis Cup for Slovenia, where he won his only rubber against Dudi Sela in April. While he has not progressed past the second round at any ATP level event, he has proved to be a talented player and one to look for in the future, and this is not the first time he has faced a Brit in a Slam, he faced James Ward in the third qualifying match of the French Open, where he lost easily, then facing Ward again at Queens in the first round and losing again. Rola beat Spaniard Pablo Andujar in straight sets in the first round.

This will be the first meeting between the two. The match will take place on Wednesday.

He looks dangerous, and his relative anonymity will help him. Andy will need to be wary.

I like to see the up and coming players, future talent maybe.  Andy will not have any big problems and it's good training for him, to keep him on his toes!

Andy should be able to exploit Rola's relative inexperience on the grass. It took him ages to adjust to it at Queen's against Ward, so Andy should be able to get him moving and make him uncomfortable.

I can't see Rola troubling Andy for long.

Wishing Andy the best of luck in his match tomorrow.  Come out with the same confidence you had yesterday and focus and figure this guy out.  Hopefully you got to look at some of his previous matches.  Win the last point Andy!!!

Yeah thought he would go back to being on 3rd on court as it means all us at work can see Andy when we come home. Usually BBC prefers Andy to come on court about 5pm if possible

cmon yeah  I have to admit it, loving this 1st on court starts!  I know it's not the best time for those in the UK but for me, tis good Whistle

Today's inspiration for the alternative H2H - pictures taken with other people.  Andy was snapped with Tom Daley at the London marathon earlier this year and Blaz was with his crazy coach, Jakub Zahlava dontknow

cmonandy  Stay focused and don't let your guard down champ!
