Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Very long first game, watching this match will be exhausting . Then again, I don't mind, I want a very competitive match from these two, the longer the better, unless Gilles can do it in 2 .

17 mins 15 secs for the first game, a lot of BPs but couldn't convert any. Andy always came up with the good on those BPs though. Now hopefully, Gilles can hold his. Allez.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

He looks fine, so far. But these are very brutal games, they run each other around, as you can imagine. 4 games and it's already been half an hour. I don't think his back can hold for a long match. Well, he's already down a break...

Yes, he's going downhill fast.
He's slow to the ball now, already.

Re: On to Miami, "Take Two" continues...

Well, first serve is 2 for 2. Not that it's any consolation when you are serving 14%.
