Good report, Nigel.

My goodness I'm exhausted just watching the match. As his former coach, Brad Gilbert would have said, winning is everything, even winning ugly.

It was obvious that the conditions were gruelling, but Andy came through, but by his own admissions, would not have done so two years ago. Thus sprake the more mature AM.

Actually, you can see Nadal with two broken legs and a lacerated internal organ still having a go. Perhaps we need to add a severed head.
Im afraid i'd still have to pick Rafa to win.

This will all depend on the draw. Andy is probably preparing in a different way. I don't think he'll be utterly aggressive. I don't think that would be wise at all.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Agreed. I refer the honourable lady to the Black Knight. It's just a flesh wound.

You saved yourself a lot of stress. When we were waiting for Hawkeye on Ferrer's match point...

How long is Murray likely to stay at No 2 for? Will he still have it come the French? I assume Rafa won't be adding many points until Wimbledon. Just had a thought - if Rafa ends up in Djoko's half at the French and Murray is seeded 2nd, could Murray conceivably make the final? Think
Defending 180 points in Monte Carlo, so will fall back to #3 for Madrid if he doesn't make the QFs there. Murray will also lose 90 in Barcelona.

However Federer is defending 1000 points in Madrid, Murray is defending 0, so great chance there to make up some ground - even without winning a match, Federer stands to lose 400+ points if he fails to defend his title, and given he only won it last year after Djokovic and Nadal bounced out on the blue surface, that seems quite likely. Federer defending 360 in Rome, Murray defending just 90.

Murray defending just 360 points over the clay, Federer 1360.

Worth remembering that Murray lost to Berdych, Raonic, Gasquet and Ferrer last year on the clay; didn't even make the semis of any event. So being #2 might not make much difference anyway, unless he can get past the 5-16 ranked players.

Also worth nothing the 'Race' rankings (current points gained in 2013):

1 Djokovic 2990 (5 tournaments)
2 Murray 2630 (4 tournaments)
3 Ferrer 2370 (8 tournaments)
4 Nadal 1900 (5 tournaments)
5 Berdych 1550 (7 tournaments)
6 Del Potro 1425 (7 tournaments)
7 Gasquet 1215 (8 tournaments)

...

8 Federer 1170 (5 tournaments)

You didn't miss much. Quite straightforward win really, certainly no heart-wrenching rallies or stressful moments from this one.

Brilliant, brilliant result for Andy. Didn't play his best and still won. What a fighter!

Do I feel sorry for Ferrer? Ask me in a month or 6!

It was a weird match, but hugely entertaining. Frankly it could have been as dull as ditch-water and I wouldn't care. Andy won! He's world no.2!

They do need to do something about the time rule. I'm sick of hearing about it being called a new rule. It's an old rule that is being enforced. However, while I take the point about long rallies, that sort of thing, I don't buy Petch's thing about crowd enjoyment. That's just daft.

Andy was right, in my view, to speak to the umpire about the time thing. The thing is that they've made a song and dance about the rule being enforced, that umpires can no longer use judgement. Then Ferrer is allowed to take 42 seconds between points? What they should do is make the time 30 seconds and enforce that.

They should have a clock on the court, and the server should be allowed, within the rules, to punch the first person in the crowd who starts a countdown. Now that would add some spice to things lol. Actually, wasn't there a bit of aggro in the crowd today at one point?

Seriously though, the time thing is daft at the moment. They either need to have a clock on court and increase the time allowed a bit, or they need to alter the time allowed in accordance with the conditions, but I don't see that working.
