Mark did well to get past Sluiter but here's where the real tennis starts.
(Okay the red stuff is tennis too but so different! The whole ethos of playing on clay hitting those loopy shots.. let's just say hearing the sound of flat shots being hit is music to my ears again)
Andy is showing how he can really play on a surface he likes. 6-2 to him on the first set and he's really taking Mark apart and it's not like Mark is playing badly. In fact flipper looks as fit as I've seen him but Andy is just playing sublime tennis (well as sublime as it can be bearing in mind it's the start of the grass court season). In particular, Andy is actually playing well on his BH side and he's actually hitting some down the line passes on that wing. And of course his serve is so much more potent.
Yup.. thank god for the start of the fast court season. Clay is well and good but I'd started to forget how much faster tennis can be!

Contrary to popular belief, I am not a Rafa hater. I am, however, a RAFATARD hater and therefore take endless delight in each Rafa loss as it allows me to sock it hard to his tards.
