Great win for Andy, just as easy as I expected. Andy never played that well which is great, means there is plenty more to come this week.
Everything is going for him apart from the weather. Nadal is ticking over but isn't at the level he was at Wimby or RG IMO. Andy would have a good chance against him, especially as in the two big matches played in slams on hard Andy has won the last two since he lost that 5 setter in Australia what seems like an eternity ago. Last time they played in NY Andy took him apart.
And Simon is battling hard to take the fourth set so they are having a marathon which can only help Andy, especially since he would beat either of them no problem.
All looking good, apart from what is going to be a heavy schedule. The best answer to that problem is to win quickly, which he did today.
The two of them looked knackered actually. Error prone Simon 2-4.
