Btw even though Andreev isn't in great shape, he has the game to take out Nadal. Actually he was the last player who beat Nadal on clay.

Nice choke, Marc. Held to 15 or 0 for most of the third and then goes from 5-3 to 5-7. :clap2:

Never in doubt and Igor has a better chance against Nadal.

It's not easy having to adjust from clay to hardcourt and the trip from Buenos Aires to Dubai, but now build on this result.

Rare footage of Andreev hitting a backhand.

He always plays in Dubai this time

This year he is coming back from injury, and he is the type of player who needs matches to attain top form. It would make more sense to stay on clay, especially since he already played in South American tournaments. Now there is the additional issue of flying to another continent and flying back for IW/Miami.

Yes. But now he is a bit of adopted to hard courts

That is the only thing, but still playing an additional tournament will not improve his chances by that much relative to the inconvenience of travelling back to Dubai and than going to IW. However it is his choice, hopefully it will tutn out well.
