Watched my recording this morning.
As soon as I saw who was the ump, I was Oh Nooo..
Stupid umpiring by Ali Nili (no surprise.. this is the same guy who bought into Fed's monsoon theory after about 3 drops of rain at the Shanghai semi with Andy in 2012, and the consequent roof closing.) Andy sure showed him, tho'
Some good stuff from Sousa. Unfortunately he was able to push Andy way behind the baseline, but Andy's defensive skills are impeccable, and once he got in his groove there was no stopping him. I never once thought he was going to lose.
I enjoyed watching him feast on Sousa's 2nd serve. Something Andy has to watch out for from other opponents.
Great to see his panther-like movement, and his will to win.
