Agree Bev, was watching livescores too.
Court was packed apparently - great atmosphere.

I didn't watch the match but am very disappointed at the result.  Whatver the reason for his defeat the harsh fact is that none of the top 3 would allow themsleves to lose in their first match against a player they should beat.  They might struggle a little but find a way of coming through in the end.    If nervousness is indeed the cause then hopefully Lendl might suggest a way he could cope with this.
Again you won't find this happening to the top three.  Also Lendl cannot always be present at his matches, and indeed he wasn't present in Dubai yet Andy got to the final, so that reason doesn't hold much water here.

Well I guess we just have to keep our fingers crossed and hope that Andy does better in Miami.   

I didn't see the match but how could it be nervousness?
Again from what I gather Andy was very passive and tentative so you are most probably right, but honestly this is becoming very tiresome indeed.
He just doesn't seem to have the resilience, assertiveness and mental toughness of the other 3 and thats what is surely required now.
Come on Andy grow up & be a professional.
Hopefully he'll go far with his brother and the net play etc that doubles brings shall assist him in Miami.
But we will have to see how it goes.

Andy said he has spoken with Ivan Lendl and feels much better, and Ivan has offered him some advice.
Some seem to have forgotten that Nadal has lost to Garcia-Lopez on clay!!!
I heard Mark Petchey say that he was sure Nadal was happy that he wasn't playing the last evening match as Andy had, because it was like playing through treacle. Andy did say it was like playing on clay, but as usual he didn't offer that as an excuse, just that he couldn't get his strokes going through, that he had chances but didn't take them, and was disappointed. I think we must give credit to his opponent who played out of his skin. I really don't agree with theycanillme re Andy and the other 3.  hug

Good news that won what sounds like a v good dubs match - hopefully will give Andy a lift, though as bbh said, pity it had to be at the expense of the lovely Colin and Ross.
Forgot to say yesterday that the other thing Cowan said was that Andy's attitude was very good on Saturday.  Now given that Cowan is usually the first to go on about Andy's attitude being poor, I found that encouraging at least.
Thought your post rather harsh theycanbillme.

Too bad if you thought it was rather harsh.
Well sorry, but this is happening just too often now.
I'm actually getting tired of defending him all the time and having everything blow up in my face due to Andy's continuous implosions.
You know against people that think like this Cowan fellow youre referencing. His behaviour is ridiculous sometimes.
I'll get over it but if he isnt in some kind of tailspin then I expect him to give it his all in Miami. No excuses.

I felt depressed seeing a match that appeared to be one-sided against Murray with Garcia-lopez (GL) getting more confidence as the match progressed, when in fact it should be the other way round. Why? Is it because Andy did not anticipate that GL would be as good as he was, or was it because he did not quite prepare for the match as he usually does for the likes of Nadal, Federer or Djokovic, or was it because he got out of the wrong side of the bed, or all of the above. I believe that the same level of preparation, including tactically observing videos of opponent's play, would help in future matches regardless of the opponent.

I hope Andy tries to forget this match after learning what you can from it and go forward to the next by using all the guile, talent, experience and mastery of tennis skills we know you possess. Good-luck mate!
