Yes I noticed that too - it was when Andy was playing very passively so perhaps he was telling him to hit through the ball? Interesting, not seen Lendl do that before on court.
Oh good.  I thought I might stand accused of being negative, but not once have I seen Lendl change even his facial expression during a match.  As I recall, he had his hand on the edge of the box and raised it briefly.  Telekinesis or not I think we were all going a bit mental at that stage!  Whether Andy's passiveness was due to nerves or the fact that his feet were slipping around in his shoes (which he changed at the break) goodness knows, but I hope Aggressive Andy shows up against Cilic, otherwise he'll probably lose.

I also hope, if he must keep a ball in his pocket, that he has a word with Adidas on the matter so's they can give him deeper pockets. lol  I think I've only seen that happen once to a player, never mind 3 times in one match - and those two lost points could have been very costly indeed.

I noticed the signal too Aileen - was afraid he might get done for coaching.  I also saw him smile at one point as things were going better -nearly fell off my chair.  I suspect the passiveness was combination of nerves, conditions and loss of rhythm following match against Karlo.
I'm a Baggy fan too and thought he played really good tennis for parts of the match and do love that smile.  But I'm afraid there's no contest when he's up against our Andy.
I noticed that when they repeated the post-match interview on R5L this morning they edited out the bit when he said he blamed his shorts - perhaps at request of Adidas?   Whistle

Very close but Andy's break point conversion is horrible  though actually leads with match points won.
Thanks for the link Bbh. Ive not seen that one before.

 I wondered if it was linked to his fall - cant remember the exact sequence of events so could be wrong. Lovely headline in Scotland on Sunday btw  - Caught short -Andy's wardrobe malfunction!  poster_oops

It was a good match.  I did think that the plan went wrong.  I felt that Andy was trying to tire Bagdatis before sticking the knife in but the falls put paid to that until the end.  The last set was incredible and hopefully he will be able to reproduce that kind of tennis tomorrow.  They both played very well and Bagdatis is a very good player but just has not been consistent enough over the years.

The first ball seem to fall immediately after the fall.

In spite of all the publicity to the contrary Andy was only doing what the top players do - dig deep and come though.  When Fed or Djoker or Nadal do the same they are lauded as great.  What is wrong with the press and the Murray haters.

I believe it's Karlovic to blame for Andys (tennis) balls popping out. As you so astutely observe, you've only ever seen this happen once and just one ball.
Ivo or his team must have bribed someone in the dressingroom to shorten Andys pockets a little and cause this mishap. I cannot be a fluke or coincidence, as Karlo pointed out regarding his foot faults! Impossible lmao

Murray's latest BBC column.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/tennis/18664872
I like Andy's blogs.  They're always interesting and give a good insight into what goes on behind the scenes - like how he spent the time waiting for the match to start.  Also good to know that he seems to have no ill effects from his various tumbles on court.

I believe it's Karlovic to blame for Andys (tennis) balls popping out. As you so astutely observe, you've only ever seen this happen once and just one ball.

Not surprising - handing two points like that to his opponent, especially in a Slam he desperately wants to win, is just insane.  Adidas claimed it was a manufacturing fault, but Andy isn't taking any chances and will now be wearing a different style of the same shorts, at least for the Cilic match.
