Good enough from Andy, no more, really.

Usual sort of Murray early round match - grimacing and groaning, clutching at various body parts and looking like he'd already gone a few rounds against Mike Tyson before the match is 20 minutes old.

You wonder if he's at death's door but somehow he pulls out a win, and your wonder and admiration is renewed :)

Didn't Tipsy struggle through the Belgrade Challenger last week? He must be tired. God I can't stand Tipsy. He reminds me of the MTF poster tennizen. Except he's a middling tennis professional and she's an unemployed PHD.

We'll see what happens, he has a chance if Andy has another rough sort of day, he's beaten Andy before and can be a nuisance if he plays well. Andy should be okay though.

phau or injured Youz in qf - extra incentive

02-23-2010, 10:01 PM
Hope he's feeling okay mentally - I get the impression the Aussie Open loss really blew his mind a bit, apparently he barely did any practice in the three weeks between Australia and Dubai, sounds like he needed time to process it all, hope he's done.

6-5 to Andy now, he seems to have woken up a bit but I don't think Tipsarevic is planning to go anywhere, still work to do here to try and secure this first set.

However he is a break up in the second and does seem to be playing better.

I think he was just trying a lot of stuff in the first set. Was randomly serve and volleying on a lot of points.

02-24-2010, 03:19 PM
He looked annoyed about the call at the end of the 1st set, but it would have been harsh on Tipsy not to give it.

The call was correct, the problem was Lahyani should have called the score before he discussed with Tipsarevic, it looked like the protest influenced the call, umpires usually don't do it that way around.

I was worried by his reaction when he lost to Federer at AO. Seems to have knocked him a fair bit.

I was worried by his reaction when he lost to Federer at AO. Seems to have knocked him a fair bit.
Me too - I think he believed it was his moment and that it was ordained somehow - his 17th slam, same as when Federer won his first - and having dropped only one set all tournament, plenty of time to rest and prepare for the final...totally different to the way the US Open unfolded, I think he thought "this time it's mine."

I think this reverse has been much harder to take because there's been no external factors he can blame it on at all - he simply didn't play well enough on the day.

I hope he can move past it quickly and learn the lessons he needs to learn and get back down to business.

I feel bad for him though, I hate to think of him beating himself up over it.

Jade Fox
02-24-2010, 09:40 PM
I agree with you both Chris and l_mac. He's always been an intense person so I hope he will get through this. There's still a lot tennis left in the year so all is not lost.

02-24-2010, 10:40 PM
From Andy's post match interview he intends to use the 2 weeks before Indian Wells begins to work hard and get himself feeling physically 100% again, hopefully that will get him into a good frame of mind for IW.

Andy seems a bit depressed with tennis atm, I can't blame him for that. You can imagine everything he put into that winter training in Miami. Such a grueling schedule solely with the aim of winning in Austrailia. He cried FFS Andy the guy who dosent show much emotion!!

I do think he is determined to find a way to beat Federer which I do support, but I hope he dosen't become like A-rod and become obsessed with that. He still has other events to play and plenty of other players to worry about. I don't know what we'll see in IW and Miami tbh...but I am predicting a very decent clay season for Andy I think he could suprise when pressure is off.
