All that's the best and worst of our Andy on display there. Some brilliant, sublime wonderful tennis...but takes his boot off Kiss's throat and lo and behold a tie break!
Andy just resolve to sort this out and Slams are yours, believe me cmon yeah

Kiss has a great deal to be proud of.  True Andy went a bit mentally AWOL in the 3rd but Kiss played probably the best tennis of his life (don't they all when they've absolutely nothing to lose! Rolling Eyes)  I don't think Andy'll be too pleased with his own performance - but, for goodness sake, he only arrived back in the UK on Monday!  Jetlag could well have been a factor here.

Interesting. Think  Maybe Kiss should have stuck to tennis as a career, as Andy half-jokingly said.

Kiss actually played a lot better than some of the ranked players Ive seen Andy play. Its great that Andy is playing in this - and good to see so many children watching. I admire the way Judy seems to want to make a difference and get kids playing sport.

Apparently Andy paid for all the Dunblane kids to come and watch. Smile  Also I agree that Kiss showed a lot of talent once he got going, and he certainly didn't seem to be fazed by who his opponent was!  I really was beginning to get quite nervous the longer the third set progressed.

Kiss was ranked 500-and-something before he stopped playing and Jeremy Bates said he'd be at least top 200 just now with the way he played against Andy.

that's me just home.  Was sat next to the Stirling Uni guys, and am in awe of the amount of beer they can put away!

Poor Wardy was going so well until his injury, then rushing off court to be sick. It was very, very hot in there- (much hotter than when they played there in July, when the air con was set at Arctic levels)- at one point the Ladies' loos nearest us resembled a Casualty Clearing station, with kiddies feeling unwell and older people too.Even the stewards were complaining of the heat. No idea if they can adjust it for the rest of the tie.

Kiss did so well. I had predicted a 50 minute set, and whilst I never felt the result was in doubt, he didn't disgrace himself. Murray was obviously tired, but the reception he got was fantastic, no matter how he played.

Back for doubles tomorrow. I think it worthwhile pointing out (I had to wait ages afterwards for my daughter) that Andy signed every single tennis ball, ticket, scrap of paper and flag shoved in front of him,mostly by kiddies, at the end.  I've been attending tennis matches for 40 years and have never seen that before. Impressive.

Thanks Allan.  I wouldn't disagree with Jeremy.

No I'm not, and if you read Allan's post you'll see why.  Whilst I never thought the final result of the match was in doubt, Kiss came very, very close to taking that third set.  His game had talent written all over it, and there was definitely something going on between the ears re tactics.

Great to have a first-hand report.  Thanks. Smile  And that's one of the things I really love about Andy - the way he goes out of his way to please his fans, especially the kids.  Just wish we could have the Uni guys at some of Andy's matches!

Absolutely fantastic to see Andy in action tonight.  He made hard work of it in the 3rd set though.

It's weird hearing "God Save The Queen" in Scotland.

In all honesty I was dreading someone booing. Not a big fan of it but it's still our anthem.
