Not gonna win the AO this year, I feel. Andy's rustier than my garden gate.
so many positives! His serve was quite magnificent which surely must mean his back is OK
Now have high hopes for the rest of the year
Am in lerve with the Aussie commie
Just fantastic and so appreciative of both players.
Anyone know who it was. Simone? Bevc?
Blueberry - it was John Fitzgerald and Geoff Masters (from memory).
I thought Andy was playing at 3/4 pace. He did look really good and when he decided to really wind it up he was able to hit really heavy, penetrating ground strokes and looked world class. He was a bit annoyed at times with his court movement, calling himself slow to get to balls, which may explain the UFE's. I agree with others and think he is just trying to remain under the radar because he really doesn't know what will happen when playing the top 6 players in the world.
Later on in some other tennis coverage Todd Woodbridge warned against reading too much into the result and clearly stated that both players looked good, that seems to lend weight to the theory.
