Ok, so our Andy lost. I know everyone here on MW will be disappointed with this start to his WTF campaign. I am too, but lets all imagine how our Andy now feels - he knows things were not right for him in this match, and he knows he'll have to up his performance in the next match - only a win will give him a realistic chance of progressing further than the RR stages. putting everything into its proper perspective, both Federer and Nadal had tough opening matches, matches they both so easily could have lost. I for one am not panicking, if he does not move past the RR stanges, is it really the end of the world? In a few months it will all be forgotten. In the bigger scheme of things our Andy appears to be moving forward, even if he is taking the scenic route. Onwards and upwards Andy, put this performance behind you, focus on your next match.
Thank goodness we have you P.T. i was there at the match in row a right behind Andy. ( i did shout my head of sorry it didnt work ) but from the moment he came in the arena it was clear something was wrong, when he was talking to the trainer he said his groin was so painful and was burning when he moved, he may pull out now any way, so it wasnt Andy wasnt playing well he couldnt!!! feel so sad for Andy, just when things were going so well. Got some great photos of our Andy. shame Berdych didnt beat Djoko he was getting well rattled at times, great atmosphere at the O2.
