Pavel retired with a a back injury. It's the injury that kept him out for over a year.

Couldn't really tell much from the match. Bit of a training session.

Footfaults everywhere. Gotta wonder why these people even both to come to the AO when they are not fit.

It was quite a good match til Pavel retired.
Pavel was taking some pretty good forehands and volleys.

Pavel had a problem with his back. He couldn't even carry his own bag off court
Would have preferred Andy to get a bit more match practice though!

Apparently Murray flexed his muscles, and Pavel fell over his chair in awe and hurt his back, expected.

Damn shame for Pavel really - kinda sad ending for him, not sure we'll be seeing him back competitively on the court now.

Andy - well, not much to say - languid, hard to say he was even settled out there before it was over.

Murray would have liked more time on court, but hey, he seemed to be striking the ball okay, so bring on round 2.

Tough luck for Andrei, hope he can have his swansong in Bucharest.

Poor Pavel, you just don't wish health problems on anyone.

Andy seemed to coast there though.

Looked to be in decent form from what it did show.

I can't believe i stayed up for this now though

Nasty sun in the eyes at one end, combined with really heavy bursts of wind at times - was some quality mishits on the serve :-)
