Anderson played pretty well however struggled on the return and played a bit too passive in my opinion, i think this match was there for the taking had he taken the ball on and approached the net a bit more, however Minar was very solid from the back and served well, so good win for ivo.

this half of the draw is a joke apart from Tsonga and who knows if he'll be even trying. good opportunity missed for Anderson to do well at home. Although he's been based in the US for a long time as far as I know.

Not a particularly surprising result, but all the more disappointing for Anderson given that he will lose some relatively big points over the next few weeks (Las Vegas runner-up), which will drop him well clear of top 100.

the weight of expectations of the SA fans now lies on Klaasen :D
