Post Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season: Ends in the 3rd round :sad:

Lost to Querrey in Los Angeles, won Toronto and has now lost to Fish for the 3rd time in a row this year in Cincinnati

On to the US Open
He can defend the US Open R4 last year and get some major points here, and even win it

GL Andy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Los Angeles, California

1st: BYE
2nd: def. Tim SMYCZEK (USA) 6-1 4-6 6-2
QFs: def. Alejandro FALLA (COL) 7-6(3) 6-1
SFs: def. Feliciano LOPEZ (ESP) [4] 6-0 1-6 6-4
Fin: lt. Sam QUERREY (USA) [2] 7-5 6-7(2) 4-6

A disappointing week for Andy, struggled throughout the week with second set blips all over the place.
Had a match point against Querrey in the second, but couldn't convert, and ultimately lost the match

Hard-ish draw in Toronto, with Ferrer, Gulbis, Nalbandian and Soderling all in his quarter all of them possible quarterfinal opponents
Is defending his no.4 ranking and a title here

Toronto Masters, Ontario

1st: BYE
2nd: def. Xavier MALISSE (BEL) 7-5 6-2
3rd: def. Gael MONFILS (FRA) [15] 6-2 0-6 6-3
QFs: def. David NALBANDIAN (ARG) 6-2 6-2
SFs: def. Rafael NADAL (SPA) [1] 6-3 6-4
Fin: def. Roger FEDERER (SWI) [3] 7-5 7-5

Wins his 5th MS title, his first title of the year and 15th title overall
h2h vs. Federer is now 7-5, while his h2h vs. Nadal is now 4-8
Fuck yeah

Easy quarter on paper, in Cincinnati, but could be very difficult if he has lapses.

Cincinnati Masters, Ohio

1st: BYE
2nd: def. Jeremy CHARDY (FRA) 6-3 6-7(3) 6-2
3rd: def. Ernests GULBIS (LAT) 4-6 6-3 7-6(4)
QFs: lt. Mardy FISH (USA) [WC] 7-6(7) 1-6 6-7(5)

Very disappointing result, was close to winning.
He has now lost to Fish 3 fucking times in a row this year, which he shouldn't be doing
Anyway, has a week off now before US Open starts
On to the final slam of the year where he'll be seeded 4th

US Open, New York

1st: def. Lukas Lacko (SVK) 6-3 6-2 6-2
2nd: def. Dustin Brown (JAM) 7-5 6-3 6-0
3rd: lt. Stanislas Wawrinka (SWI) [25] 7-6(3) 6-7(4) 3-6 3-6

Terrible, terrible performance against Wawrinka, but credit to Stanislas

So ends the American hardcourt season for Andy, and a pretty disappointing end.
On to the last part of the year - The Road to WTF

GL for the rest of the year, Andy

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 11 WINS, 5 finals, 11 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Olympic gold and silver medals, Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 558-166...
TITLES: 35 and counting...

andy_murray Hitting wIth my friend dani vallverdu later. A while since I picked up a racquet so gonna be interesting.

Last time he had a break of this sort of length was after the Aussie, let's hope this return will be a little bit more fruitful.

Re: ~~~~~Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season~~~~~

Don't you guys think it's too long a break? Wouldn't he be better off to play one tournament in preparation of the TMSs? LA, like Djokovic does?

Re: ~~~~~Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season~~~~~

I don't know...it seems like he tends to feel better after he's had a break and done a heavy training block, it seems to put him in the right frame of mind. Hopefully the post-Australia blues are long behind him and he's getting ready for a serious assault on the US Open

I'm not expecting anything from him, therefore I can only be happy at what he does accomplish Vamos Andy

Re: ~~~~~Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season~~~~~

Haha, he listened to me! Very good choice imo, get some match practice in before the big tournaments. This way he comes more prepared than the other top guys.

Djokovic withdrew last minute, looks like they somehow secured Andy as a replacement.

Re: ~~~~~Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season~~~~~

On a very random note, has he decided to stop wearing a hat for good?

Yeah I think so - certainly for his matches. Not sure why.

He Is Playing In Los Angeles.
Surely His 15 Title Will Come Here.
Seems He Knows That His No.4 Ranking is Up For Grabs At Toronto.

Re: Road to the US Open - Andy's US Hardcourt Season: 1st Seed In Los Angeles

Good to see Andy playing. Makes this week much more bearable-tennis wise.

I've been in tennis hiatus for too long. Finally, something to look forward to. Go Andy!
