That video Andy bowing to the Queen is priceless.
That bow was pure farce.
In actual fact all they needed to do was simply bow their heads.
11am Paris time MM so not too bad. It does mean probably small crowd so no atmosphere but as they're saying there might be showers tomorrow perhaps no bad thing to get the match out of the way.
I like the way they move the top 4 around the main courts so they're not giving one of them an advantage over the others, at least so far - French egalite in action.
I'm not too happy. Andy isn't a morning person (and neither am I!). And it isn't like he just gets out of bed, has his breckie and then walks onto the court, but has to do all sorts of preparation first including some practice. Also he's happier when there's a crowd, even if they are urging on his opponent. Still it should be an interesting match given that this is their first meeting on clay.
Agree about the scheduling. A few tournaments could learn from RG.
