I’ve been watching quite a few of the matches, but I’m not sure there is much to say about it really, other than it is nice to see some tennis, but it is just an exho tournament. Andy obviously saving himself for August/September/October, great experience for the lesser known British players to play with him.
Andy was really good today with Lloyd Glasspool in the mens' doubles. It is those little touches of brilliance that he showed that made you aware what a great player he still is. There were lots of them too. I am looking forward to him returning to competitive singles where he should, with no bad luck in draws received, stroll back to being in top 50. How much further he might go is so dependant on chance and opportunity it is almost pointless to try to predict.
I would have preferred him to start at a lower level of event than NYC but if he can play the Cinci qualifying tournament, as has been suggested, that might be good as then he has more opportunity to play himself back into a good competitive condition. Winning matches in a row, not tournaments initially, is to my mind very important at this stage.
