That was a decent performance. Stupid first service game in both sets, but this court seems slower than the Paris clay, so not a big deal.
Wow praise indeed! w00t

He seems a lot more positive today generally, I think he has come to terms with the ankle and so on, and it is obviously pretty fine.  A pretty routine win really, and I would expect the same tomorrow.  The only time Cilic beat Andy was when he had a sprained wrist, otherwise while the odd set has been dropped, Andy has always been too consistent.  Cilic has big serve, and heavy strokes, but nowhere near consistent enough really.  I would like to see Andy step it up a little.

What I really wanted to comment on was Andy's serve, which appears much improved.  I did notice in Paris the first serve percentage was way up, and has been good here this week also.  If he can serve those sorts of numbers then that will be absolutely huge really.  Andy has won masters series events before serving under 50, but in the slam finals he has played it really has been the serve where he has lost it.  He needs to maintain it as it could be crucial, as thing will be a bit faster at Wimby.  I think it is more the fact it has been cold, rainy, windy.  The courts need some sun and good weather, and things will quicken up a bit.

Can't see Nadal beating Tsonga btw tomorrow.  Ole Radek nearly had his number earlier.  Rafa needs to rest up because we all know when it comes to tail end of wimby he will be back to his best.

Good luck Andy tomorrow!

Great write up Nigel.......as per usual! I was really heartened to hear Andy say the ankle felt fine! There were one or two visible 'twinges' the day before, but none yesterday! Tipsy played a great game too! He looked confident and gave Andy's ankle a real workout! I was really pleased too, that we didn't see any of the tantrums yesterday that Andy had indulged in the day before........kicking his racquet ect. [don't think I've ever seen him do that before], but it came across to me as very childlike......like a little boy who can't get his own way. All we had today were a few mutterings and I didn't even notice him looking at his box either! Much better! Tipsy on the other hand seemed to be getting advice from his box during the match......telling him to challenge! Not fair! Not that it done him any good in the end! w00t

I'm inclined to agree with you SG, but Cilic cant be discounted too quickly. So Mr Magic needs to make an appearance, early. When Andy takes control and dictates, it sends strong vibes to lower ranking opponents, then they know if it's the real Andy Murray they're playing, or, that imposter that sometimes turns up.

Andy seems in good spirts (always a good omen)and jokingly said, he grimaces after every point, ankle or no ankle. Absolutely serving better, essential on this green stuff!

Im not sure what to predict about Rafa vs Tsonga. Rafa is tenatious as we know, but losing his grip a little this week. Yes, impressive play by Radek, but he faded away completely in the 3rd.

Yes I'd been thinking that about the serve in Paris sg.  His first service percentages were much more respectable than has often been the case and I think the 2nd serve is less of an achilles heel than it was.  He said yesterday in one of his interviews that he'd been working alot on his serve over the last year so perhaps it's finally paying off and perhaps Cahill has helped to tweak it?
