Wow, how exciting! Pity we're into the European leg of the tour - those night feeds could be taken up watching tennis Very Happy
Might not be very soothing for the baby if Andy were playing  w00t

Well done to Andy, that match was a joy to watch, his use of the angled drop shot was excellent and on this form there's no one better out there with better feel around the net. Looks like last year's performances have given him extra confidence on the red stuff.
Regarding the haircut I think it's great, he'll certainly not have to spend any time grooming it in the mornings when he gets out of bed! In saying that he also looked great during last year's clay court season when it was unkempt and crazy looking. Any extreme hair cut, be it short or long is fine by me!
Looking forward to tomorrow's match, my wife and I are only a week or so away from the birth of our first child now and a first clay court title for Andy would be a lovely distraction from impending parenthood! nervous

Looking at some of the posts re Andy's haircut and sartorial elegance, it appears to be a male versus female situation. In the main, the men appear to approve, whereas in the main, the ladies (led by Aileen) diapprove.

I like both!

Both what?  Men and ladies?  haha

Actually I am on the men's side, this outfit is better than normal and the haircut/style is alright.

Nice performance from Andy. Balanced variety of play, with controlled aggression and defence and lovely use of the drop shot at the right time. I just love the clay court season, brings out the best in players in terms of variety.

That is exactly what I think the look of lendl!  It might help him to win the French who knows.

I have to say I really like the kit.  I think the dark gray and orange go very well together and it's rather more interesting than Andy's kit often is.  I have said this a number of times but noone took me up on it!  Perhaps I'm in a minority of one?    doh

mcenroeforever. Congratulations to you and your wife. Keep us informed.

Life change. Just wait. I've had 5 and it really is great once you accept that you are no longer the principle actor in the relationship.

Great match for Andy ! It appears the working with Lendl is looking like a great decision ! Serve percentage was great so that is always a plus www.atomictickets.com I think that continued practice on clay will only help Andy's game get even stronger !

I'm beginning to like the haircuit and I do like the grey and orange kit, the combination made him look more menacing!

I hope the higher serving percentages is a sign of things to come. I do miss seeing Andy getting aces with the flat bombs but if he has an off day then it puts enormous pressure on his 2nd serve.

He certainly moved well on clay from the get go which is encouraging. Having watched the rerun of the whole match, Troicki has regressed since he came close to beating Andy at RG. Andy looked secure throughout the whole match so here's hoping this continues through the clay and grass court stretch.

BTW, really liking the grey kit and black Barricades 7 shoes. Quite tempted getting a pair.

I like the hair-cut (I think Andy needs to look MEANER on court) and I don't mind the outfit at all, in fact I quite like it.  It could be a lot worse.  Some of Nole's tops are shockers!

I expect a good week from him here, but Nole looked in good shape earlier, and I foresee another Andy v Nole encounter in the semi-finals.  If it is anything like last year in Rome should be a cracker.  Let's see if Ivan can make any difference with Andy over the next few weeks.  Andy could win the french open, it is not impossible at all by any means especially as Nadal and Federer cannot be relied upon.  Can Rafa's knees really handle 2 months hard slogging on the clay? I have my doubts on the evidence of the hard court season after his break.  Nadal is a ticking time-bomb IMO, I think a long injury lay-off is inevitable at some point.  Nole is now an impressive model of consistency.

What we want from Andy before the french is consistency, SF's every tournament at least.  No slip-ups this year at all on the clay.  Then we need to see some wins against Nadal and Nole.  It would do so much for his confidence, and could really put him in the mix for the french if he could win a title or two.

The clay is not my favourite part of the season at all, I long for the green green grass of Queen's and Wimbledon and the Olympics in August, but in the meantime it will serve up some intrigue.

He plays Benneatau now and should not be a hard one if he plays as well as yesterday.
