For those of is who missed sneezing Andy - because obviously that is the most important thing - here's the post match interview.

A wedding snippet from the media: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/celebritynews/11496640/Andy-Murray-wedding-Dunblane-to-be-decked-with-bunting-for-tennis-stars-big-day.html

The streets of Dunblane are to be decked with bunting and wedding bows when Scots tennis ace Andy Murray gets married there next month.
Traders in the town met this week to discuss arrangements for the big event, in which thousands of tennis fans from all over the country are expected to throng the narrow streets.

I think we can expect more windy conditions on Sunday.  Andy usually deals with it well though.

You were lucky you had decent comms because I got some dreadful bore of a Brit on TennisTV who sounded as if he'd have been better commentating on a footie match, and it was obvious too that his knowledge of tennis was somewhat limited.  I've come across him once before commentating on a Raonic match (not against Andy) and he managed to pronounce his name in three different ways without ever getting it right!  So I did the same thing this time - kept the sound off for much of the match.  Didn't get to hear Andy's on-court interview either because TennisTV never show them.  It was clear though that the wind was causing a few problems.  I reckon Andy probably adapts much more quickly though to the different court conditions than some of the other players because he trains there.

It was nice to see Kim there too, something I didn't really expect with the wedding being so close, but I'm sure all the preparations will be well in hand.
Andy said, precisely that very dry air in I.W. made the ball travel faster but the court surface was slow. In contrast, Miami has much higher humidity (80-85%) ball gains moisture, becomes heavier, but the court surface is much faster.
Now for the scientific approach, which disproves amateur's theories. For those interested in physics and aerodynamics  w00t

Conclusion is that weather conditions affects the players body much more than the ball and/or court.

From what I've "seen" you are right Tamila, no-one has had a good 1st serve %
And we can stop blaming Andy and put it down to the wind, too often we are very quick to say he should do this or that but do not take into account the conditions etc that the match is taking place in.

Quite a few did, some were spoiled by wind.

I do not think any one had a good first serve percentage.

Ah, it was 57% whole match. I miss-read the stat.
