The temperature in Melbourne when Fed was playing was just under 40C. Here in Australia his next game against Tomic is attracting massive media attention, lets all hope that Tomic can live up to expectations!

It's just a shame that Tomic is also a bit of a twat. The hype around him when I was in Oz last week was a bit nauseating too.

Tomic has evidently given a lot of credit to his opponent Brands last night in his court interview. When asked how tough the match was, he said Brands played unexpectedly well.

This sounds very condescending to me, just can't warm to Tomic too brash with a high opinion of himself. He should listen to Andy and how he talks about his opponents and take a leaf from his book.

Tomic's post match interview was great. It was very honest and geunine. If anyone's interested, they can read it here.

Q.  Must be happy to seal the win eventually.

BERNARD TOMIC:  Yeah, very pleased with myself.  You know, Daniel played really, really well.  I was surprised how he played today.  You know, I'm just happy I won in the end because he wasn't playing like his ranking.  He was playing better than that.

 Q.  Was it a bit harder than you expected?

BERNARD TOMIC:  It was.  I didn't think he could serve like this.  I think he served over 20 aces the whole match.  Serving amazing.  I couldn't read it at all.  I was happy I broke him in that second set at 5 All.  Anything would have happened in that tiebreak.  Being down two sets to Love is not a good thing in Grand Slams.

I know, I know I am off topic. Good report, MH. Andy played well and kept it short and that's always a great thing considering the heat.

Without knowing the result, I watched it at 7.30 this morning on Sky Plus.  Great that you can fast forward between first and second serves, points, games and sets.  It's amazing how much dead time this cuts out and highlights just how much or little time is spent in play.  Regardless, it is a long time to be out in the scorching heat.  A comfortable win for Andy and a nail biter for Laura Robson, which I watched in real time.  I think it will take a lot to stop Andy taking the title.

I hope he does it and I can enjoy it.  Unfortunately I laid on the floor for the whole night half watching the US final whilst comforting my dog who was sadly put to sleep 5 hours after the match ended.  Not a happy day to remember for this household.

Great report and great match from Andy. I watched the replay and it was great to see Andy so in control, not getting dragged into making the match any longer than it needed to be.

I did wake up during the night, often, and put the TV on to see the last few games. It was great to see Andy wrap up the match so quickly.

I was quite glad to see that by the time Federer was playing (the evening) it was only about a degree or so cooler than when Andy played. That said, I can't wait to see Andy in a night match. I can watch him live and have my breakfast at the same time.

sorry about your dog fcr but hope Andy can give you some happy days over next week or so. 
re taking the title: would love to think you're right but much too early for those of us who fear jinxes etc and, although I've not watched him yet, the comms are saying delpo is playing like he was when he won USO so we can't ignore the threat he might pose even though Andy has always worked out how to deal with him in the past.

Great report ! - always a high standard on MW.

Caught the Haase match on youtube last night - hope to do the same with this one. Andy seems to have hit the ground running and looked in total control.
So far all the big guns seem to be breezing through.Could be interesting times ahead.
Well done to Heather and Laura too. Both showing really gritty match play to make round 3.

Happy days ! yay

I've just come across this article in the Telegraph online.  Rochus isn't pointing the finger at anyone in particular, but the inferences are clear -

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/tennis/andymurray/9809557/Australian-Open-2013-Andy-Murray-breezes-past-Joao-Sousa-and-then-hits-back-at-Belgian-player-over-doping-slur.html


On replay have seen a couple of shots of Andy's boys - looks like you've all beefed up too this year! And looking very smart, each in your different coloured shorts.  You've become quite a feature for the media in their coverage of Andy's AO matches.  yay
I think we need to have a word with Kevin Mitchell of the Guardian, who mentioned the Andy Boys in his report, saying -

"The four Murrayites who had entertained the Rod Laver Arena during his first-round stroll were there again, clapping and singing in their white-vest uniforms like refugees from a glee club."

Time KM lightened up a little!

I think we have to allow Kev his little journalistic flourishes Aileen - I'm sure Andy's Boys won't mind and after all Glee is a v popular programme. 

Good for Andy defending the players against Rochus.  Unless he has proof he shouldn't make such remarks.

Liked this line from the DT piece: Then he came into his press conference wearing a T-shirt with the legend “Prepare, Attack, Destroy”. Which is exactly how he goes about his tennis these days.
I wonder if Mr L gave him that t shirt as a little reminder of how he wants him to play day in day out  Whistle

Christophe, not to be confused with his younger brother Olivier who is currently on the circuit.

What disgraceful claims to make with absolutely nothing to back it up. I wonder if Murray could make a claim for libel.

"Oh they have far more endurance than I ever had, must be drugs. Clearly nothing to do with the years of hard work and dedication and now infamous gruelling training sessions in 40 degree heat over the summer."

Thanks for explaining who Christophe Rochus is. I thought Kev had lost the plot again lol.

As for Rochus's insinuations, it's insulting and offensive, but Andy knows how hard he works, and it is widely known amongst those in the game. The best thing Andy can do is ignore this sort of thing, which seems to me to be all about jealousy than anything.

The good thing is Andy was far from his A game and still destroyed his opponent.
