Andy badly needed this win. Well done, Andy.
This French title marks a few milestones in Andy's career:
~300th win in first round
~first carpet title
~only 2nd continental european title
~first late-season title
Plus, the fact that he beat four Frenchmen to win a French title is a big accomplishment as well.
Especially to those nitwits who insist that the Americans can't win any titles outside of the US.
Now, I just hope Andy will be able to carry this small success over to Paris Masters as well.
