This is the only tournament where I feel like covering the crowd in fire.
I think the French must be amongst the most unsporting people in the world, at least where tennis is concerned.

Thanks for this article. It brings home clearly the grind and difficulties of the challenger tour.  What I find quite unfair is that the challenger and future tours offer few ranking points making it very difficult to break through to the top 100 where one can make a decent living.

Disgusting - booing and whistling at Kyle when he came back from his toilet break.

After a slow start (losing the first set 2-6) Kyle has responded and just broke Robert to love to take the second set 6-4 (having previously been pegged back from 4-1 up).

Live on ITV4 - make that Eurosport 2.
It's been back on ITV4 for a while because that's where I'm watching it.

Yeah, i don't get that message but my mum does.  We are accessing the exact same url.  I have a feeling if I were to clear my cache it would be blocked for me too so making the most of it while I can still get in.

Andy Murray advanced into the French Open second round after beating Argentine Facundo Arguello 6-3, 6-3, 6-1.

Murray didn't start with his best tennis but improved as the match went on to secure a comfortable victory. Arguello impressed at times with his aggressive forehand but the world number 3 never looked to be in danger of falling behind in the match.

Clay-court specialist Arguello, ranked 137, started brightly in an eight-minute opening game. He earned a break point after a Murray double fault but strong serving and baseline play averted the danger.

Solid tennis from Murray in the next game paid off, while Arguello began to force his play. As the Argentine misfired a forehand, the world number 3 broke and quickly consolidated to take a 3-0 lead.

But unforced errors and passive play in the windy conditions saw the Brit slip to 0-40 at 3-1, and the 22-year-old Argentine went on to level the score.

Murray tightened up his play though and regained his lead at 4-3 before confidently closing out the set.

The second set turned at 2-2 following a brilliant point where the Brit turned defence into attack, returning a smash right into the corner to set up three break points. A well-hit return paid dividends and Murray broke to take a 3-2 lead.

The world number 3 was beginning to turn on the style, playing closer to the baseline and using a greater variety of shots. A second break at 5-3 sealed the set in Murray's favour.

The third set was comfortable on serve for Murray, Arguello's resistance fading after going down a break in the second game. A further break at 4-1 put the scoreline firmly in the Brit's favour and he duly served out the one hour and 44 minute contest.

Murray will face Vasek Pospisil or Joao Sousa in the second round, due to be played on Thursday.

It sounds like he won't play again till Thursday now as his opponent plays tomorrow, which is a drag for me as Thursday is the one day this week I can't watch.

Oh, I hope not!  I will miss him on Thursday and Saturday if he plays those days, while I would have been able to see him on Wednesday and Sunday.
