Re: Sydney R1: Andreev def. Chardy 6-2 6-4
Chardy starting 2011 as he did 2010.
I do agree with others here, though...on a very good day he can justify top 50, but generally I don't think he is a particularly good player. I remember my first glimpse of him when he beat an injured Fat Dave at the French Open (2008?), and, to me, he was little more than a reckless ball basher with very little patience or ability to construct a decent point. I haven't seen much of him since, but certainly my opinion of him hasn't changed much.
