Come on Halep, make it quick! Not least because I haven't yet forgiven Vadisova for Wimbledon 2007!
Why?  What did she do apart from (according to her Wikipedia) failing to convert 3 MPs against Ana Ivanovic in the QF, after beating Amelie in R4?

I see her ranking was as high as #7, but if she's still in the process of making a comeback after four years' out, then, provided Simona has recovered from her exertions in IW, it possibly will be a fairly short match.

Good start for them. Glad they are reunited this week.

I think the reason they didn't play together at IW was because their combined ranking wasn't high enough because of all the top singles players playing doubles, but I'm not sure about that?

Pospisil has just beaten Delpo in Miami 6-4 7-6, no real surprise with Delpo having played so few competitive matches in the last 12 months. Delpo wasn't good mentally- he had more break points than Vasek and also had 2 set points in the TB (one on his own serve which he hit a DF on), but that should come back with the more matches he plays. His backhand obviously wasn't ready and was a real weakness and Delpo hit very few winners in the whole match which is so unlike him. Pospisil didn't play a good match at all tactically and a more tactically astute player would have absolutely thrashed Delpo in the state he was in.

Hopefully Delpo will improve with the more matches he plays, maybe going to some challengers to regain confidence could be an option for him. But it is never nice to see a player have his career affected so much by injuries which Delpo undoubtedly has.

I saw bits of that match, left it soon after Delpo went up a break in the second, thinking he might at least take it to three sets. Delpo was just slicing the backhand at every opportunity, so obviously not at all confident in the wrist. And there were three DFs at the end of the first set as well, giving Pospisil a break of serve. A masters tournament is a tough place to comeback really, some lower level events might well help him build the confidence. Since he's using  a blacked out frame I wondered if he'd finally made some racquet adjustments. Anyone know?

good definition of respect in this context Mark.  We can be respectful of each other regardless of achievement.  We can be respectful of Andy as a fellow human being who just happens to have achieved a huge amount as a brilliant tennis player.
  yes  hug

Andy must have had a fair idea when he would be playing as he practiced with JO-Wilfred from 1 to 2pm, so he will be used to playing in the conditions. The day before he practiced with Gilles Muller for 2 hours from 3 to 5 pm.
He will I'm sure be pleased to start playing. You can only do so much preparation.

Having had a look at who Halep's playing, it should, in theory at least, be a quick one, so I'd estimate Andy's at 4:30pm GMT.

Come on Halep, make it quick! Not least because I haven't yet forgiven Vadisova for Wimbledon 2007!

I might end up missing this as I'll be on various trains and probably not on the train with wifi until around 6pm. Hopefully will be able to get live scores.
