I agree not top notch Andy but would have been surprising had it been. He would only have been human to be remembering his last encounter with this guy [yes I can never remember his name] and he's still playing his way back into match sharpness. His serve seemed to be either very very good or very very bad [ie too many double faults] and not much between. But at least we know now that Montreal was a glitch and not a signal of another post-GS defeat slump.
Glad to hear that Simon's match went to 3 hours. He could be rather tired especially as it's an early start [they're on first, if you've not yet seen], which for once might favour Andy given that. And if Andy does win, it sets him up well for the SFs.
Nadal was certainly struggling yesterday and would have probably lost against a player who was less flaky mentally. Verdasco really should have won that match -more than once!
Anyway, it's good to see Andy back to winning ways and may they continue.
