Average performance from Andy...I wasn't impressed at all
Thiemo showed some flashes of what he's capable of, hope he will reach the top 50 this year.

Great to see Andy winning without TBs. His level should be enough to make the quarters, though he can definitey play better.

De Bakker could be a solid top 50 player but not top 30.

Andy was never in any danger of losing this. It was a good match to practice his net game and work off the nerves and kinks.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Thiemo didn't play that badly the last two sets but he is no match for top players yet (if he ever is)

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Yeah, just solid from Andy. Like it was mentioned, at least there wasn't any TBs.

Where is serve ?

He was very tentative, you could tell that he was tight. But he moved pretty well and the serve was on (the return, not so much).

Also the courts look super slow, which is bad news for Andy going forward.

Comfortable win for Andy. Actually surprised and happy that a large majority of his shots were hit with length and weren't mid-court shit balls begging to be punished. Although he was never broken, the serve was quite tame today but I am hardly worried about that. Court positioning while hitting his volleys, however, was really bad. He should easily cruise to the quarters where he drew the best top 4 seed in Del Potro.

de Bakker, on the other hand, I failed to see where all this hype is about. I saw a handful of great powerful winners, but for the most part an average at best player. He has the power but simply fails with execution therefore making it a mute point in regards to how hard he can hit the ball. I did, however, enjoy the occasional variety in his game and glad he doesn't always try to hit the cover off the ball. I'd be shocked if he cracks the top 30.

It's a first round match that he won in straights and never really was pressured. What more do you want? It might not have been pretty at times, but just as Andy said when you have never played or never seen the guy play before it can be a little tricky at times.

dull match but Roddick has a great draw so he won't have to play his best to get far. Maybe Bellucci could trouble him but I doubt he'll be consistent enough to win more than a set

I saw footage of this match and it showed that Roddick tripped on the foot of a lineswoman and went tumbling.

average match from roddick, but that was more than enough. to many slice backhands for my liking though, his slice isn't going to trouble good players.
