In one report I read Andy said he thought the nausea might be due to him having over-hydrated before the match.  Hope it's the latter, but then, Gasquet has flu ... and we all know how infectious that is.  Such a shame if he is ill after all that hard work with Lendl, and that would undoubtedly explain his shows of frustration during the match.

Could be a combination of "something going around" or eaten & the heat. As usual he got stuck in there in the worst time slot. Hope he gets a better one next.

Andy's comments (From the beeb):-



"It was a frustrating match because I was up a break in the second set, and I gave it back," said Murray.

"In the third set, again I went up a break and gave the break straight back. So I could have made it a little bit easier for myself if I played a bit better."

Murray is in the same half of the draw as Djokovic, with Roger Federer also in Dubai, but Rafael Nadal is absent.

Murray looked ragged and at times his movement appeared labored in the midday heat, but he later revealed that he didn't "feel great"' at the start of the match and at times felt nauseous on court.

Andy got through and that is the main thing. Some of the other players have been ill so maybe something going around. A win is a win no matter how difficult. Andy always seems to be a slow starter but he got through and that is the main thing. Tomorrow is another day.
I agree, winning was the most important thing today, and Berrer looked a lot better than when I've watched him previously. Hopefully Andy will find his true form with one or two matches under his belt and have a good week. I saw a brief clip of his after match interview and he didn't look very well, hopefully it's a 24 hour bug or something.

I DVR'd the match and was pleasantly surprised when I got up for work that Andy's match was being shown on the tennis channel.  I saw he won the first set and got in to see him lose the second set.  I tried not to watch, didn't want to give him bad luck as he seemed to be struggling, but I just had to watch.  Not holding serve after breaking Berrer twice seemed like the old Andy, and if he was not feeling well, his confidence could have been down...but finally glad he came through, champions come through when they are not playing their best.  yay

just look at Brisbane and other tournament 1st round  matches   Andy  struggles (sometimes) 
I kind of expected this from Andy today because he  nearly always plays nervous tentative tennis from the start...  in other words he doesn't get out the blocks fast enough in matches..  he was a bit rusty. anyway at least he won which is the main thing Smile  cmon yeah  yay  I hope Andy improves for the next match .. im sure he will !

Andy website says he came through after grinding out a tough win over Berrer. 

At least its truthful!

Do I really have to endure Castle on Sky now?  What were they thinking? I don't know what is worse. When he talks tennis or when he goes into GMTV mode and starts wittering on about fashion, girlfriends etc.
Perhaps this is just a one off - please?????? Can't stand the man. Come back Peter Flemming! Something didn't seem quite right with Andy perhaps there's a virus going round the locker room if Gasquet is also afflicted.

Gasquet retired after losing the first set feeling 'flu-like'.  I hope there isn't something nasty lurking in the locker room - apart from Smugfed of course!

I've looked at the report on the ATP website and there's no mention of any illness, despite earlier headline suggesting this, so fingers crossed that if he indeed has picked up something it's minor.

Only managed to watch half the second set, so can't really comment much, but even there Andy was struggling to find his form and was showing signs of frustration, whilst Berrer looked to be playing very well and causing him all sorts of problems.

Hoping it's just a 24 hour thing - Gasquet withdrew unwell from his match at a set down.
