Wonderful report Nigel. I'm hopeful that Andy's ankle will not prevent him from playing on Monday. He will have all the medical help, and as it didn't swell, he'll probably have bruising but with treatment and strapping he should be able to play.
I thought his shots were amazing, just goes to show what he can do, and as has been said this will have shown Andy what he can do.I'm just going to pray that all will be well and we'll see him progressing.

Unfortunately I am almost certain that Andy's french open is over, and he has as good as admitted as much himself.  We all need to pray for a miracle recovery but I can't see him taking any chances with wimby round the corner.  His ankle is going to be very tender tomorrow, but I doubt if it will be good enough to allow him play 100% in the next match, and Andy will not risk it that is for sure.

We can but hope, but alas I doubt his ankle recovers in time.  Hope to be proved wrong!


Did he say something to that effect in his press conference?  Can you remember exactly what he said?  I don't suppose he can really tell himself until tomorrow and until after the scan.
 I doubt v much he'll tweet about it as he doesn't advertise his injuries.

Gutted for Andy, was just awful to watch him go over his ankle like that and see him in pain on the ground, hopefully it will be alright as he has been great on clay, fantastic tennis today from Andy. Wishing Andy all the best and a speedy recovery.

The interview on the BBC Tennis page with Mr. K is much more hopeful, he'd had the foot iced and elevated and it felt much better. I think being asked about his next match straight after his injury he didn't know what it was going to be like, and I'm sure he was scared. Plenty of treatment and rest tonight should ease the ankle and with support on that ankle, a brase like the one he has on his left ankle should allow him movement round the court, and hopefully Troiski will still be weak from his food poisoning and it will make the match a quick one. I'm praying and have everything crossed.

If Andy Murray's wind-affected previous match was the perfect storm, this 6-2 6-3 6-2 victory over Michael Berrer in the third round of the French Open was a walk in the park until the Scot turned his ankle early in the second set.

In the early stages, Murray's millpond calm in the face of relentless aggression from the man The Times' Neil Harman had described as 'the bear', had crafted a fascinating match of slice and dice, chip and charge, and drop and lob.

The 16-stone German, who moves on clay like a Panzer tank, was bellowing his way to net only to be undone by Murray's crisp, beaten drives that explored the acreage of Court Suzanne Lenglen.

Despite the best efforts of the world number 95, both sword and shield were working well for the Scot, and sweet strikes off the ground and a welter of drop shots helped Murray break twice and take the first set 6-2.



usually these days I can't stomach the insipid gutless way Andy goes about his business on a tennis court ....until today. sadly it took injury to force him to play attacking tennis so, basically, one hopes he doesn't recover BUT PLAYS ON ANYWAY! some chance.
 at the very least I'm hoping he doesnt use it as an excuse for yet another Slam exit

worst case is he'll carry on, revert to his dreadful percentage game, lose next round and tell us what a success its all been.

Insipid and gutless - what? That is ridiculous.

Rather than focus on the injury, i prefer to take a different position. Its more than clear having watched the match again, that we can seperate Andy's performance into two halves: Pre injury and Post injury. I wish Andy would play like the post injury Andy more often rather than the pre injury Andy. I sincerely hope that Cahill has recorded this match just to show Andy - when they perhaps watch it back - just what he can do and just how much more effective his aggressive style can be when he stands closer to the base line, taking the ball on earlier. Like Nigel Said "'virtue out of a necessity' territory"? He was spurned on by the need to end the match quickly rather than play his normal style which might have kept him out on the court longer and thus afforded him more time spent running on his damaged ankle. I for one want Andy to play this more risky type of tennis more often, i  loved watching his outrageous shot making prowess. An Andy in this mood would be a handful for anyone including the top three guys. Good luck for monday (if you play). clap clap

^ Seems pretty clear to me that Andy, most of the time, needs some adversity to play against in order to perform well.  Whether that be in terms of a higher ranked opponent, when he's the underdog, etc.  He seems to perform least well when there are no problems, and it's his for the taking.  This is why I'll always think of him as the perverse Scot!  Very Happy
