Wanna wish everyone a very Happy New Year! And a common wish for all of us, the Ducknation, to celebrate a big win by Andy this year (coming in a way of a slam or a Masters title!)
I just watched the 2nd set, and maybe I'm too critical, but I've got some mixed feelings about this match. First of all, Navarro heavily underperformed. His serve was disastrous (% was around 30-35...), and his approach & volleying was much worse than it's usually. I didn't like Andy's crapspin
which he used quite a few times from his FH side, and his slice BH was shorter and sat up more than usually as well. However, there were a few good things - Andy was finishing off the easy points very smoothly, and his BH volleys were very good and timed almost perfectly.
Anyhow, this 1st match cannot be really viewed as an indicator for the things to come. But the good thing is that Andy looked quite sharp, motivated and hungry to win. All those good signs, of course
Best of luck for the rest of the tournament!
