Igor should've won it in two as he led 4-2 in the tiebreak but he broke early in the third and that was all he needed. Good fight from Anderson but still would've loved to see him win it.

Djokovic must have tanked, it's not possible for him to lose to this guy.

It was 4-1 in the TB and Andreev showed Anderson how tennis is played at this level.

based on this match i have a hard time imagining how he must have played against Djokovic

his serve was soft and easily returnable. awful at the net and his net approaches, tactically he was playing right into Andreevs big fh, he looked so harmless in rallies winners were rare

Anderson just needs more matches at the AMS level to get used to it.

His run in Las Vegas was ok, but it wasn't that great of a field to be honest.

Andreev played OK. Anderson was ........ (can't find a right word). Boring match. Will you allow me please to say this (as a fan of Djokovic) "Djokovic is a mug":p
Somebody please shoot me now.

Igor should have won in straight sets but at this point only the W counts. Anderson had an excellent tournament here.

Now Canas :scared: :scared:

Look who he played in Vegas...all mugs.

The only way this guy beat Djokovic was a complete tank.

Obviously Nole wanted to party in Miami.

I saw Anderson for the first time and here are my impressions:
- strange motion before the serve, he doesn't touch the ball to the frame of racket; 1st serve is comicaly slow for such a tall guy but his 2nd serve is a real weapon - a lot better serve than Karlovic's
- I agree with Djokovic, he moves quiet well but nothing special from the baseline, simply solid strokes and good angles from both sides
- very clumsy at the net, actually he lost this match because of volley errors (did it two in the first game of the final set when he lost own serve)
- strong mentally, well concentrated and doesn't afraid to take the risk at the big points

After all he improves tie-break record in ATP tour, now looks impressively 8-0 :p

hey i am a fan of the Serbian Slayer too. its just that the Clay Monsters always come first.

evidently Anderson`s serve must have let him down. i did not see this match but that much appears to be evident. you have just got to take care of your serve on hard courts or you are in deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep shit no matter who you play.

Is it just me or does Andreev look more and more like Kuznetsova?

Anderson was probably tired as hell going in so I doubt he played as well as in his other matches.

His serve is horrible for a big man, Andreev out aced him, also I think he is the worst tennis player I have ever seen at the net.

Djokovic should have beaten this guy with his eyes closed.

everytime igor needed a big serve he served it down the T, Anderson did not gamble once on that

I don't think so, I have written about his weaknesses at the 1st serve and poor volleying :p

Ok, maybe a phrase "decent angles" is more adequate. I think he tries to construct the points on own service games (on Andreev's serve Kevin was useless). It isn't stupid play "who hits harder?". I give him credit because it's barely his 4th ATP tournament, has got time to improve ;)

Well Igor won and that's what counts and as big Kev he did his job this week and making a 3rd round of a TMS after qualifying was an excellent effort.

On a serious note , I think Anderson is such a bad match up for the Faker so it wasn't a surprise to me.

Well done to both guys, to Igor for reaching R4 at Key Biscayne for the first time in 5 visits, and to King Kev for making such a major impact in his first ever appearance in a TMS event.

Nole didn't tank. He's distracted. He sat with Sharapova at the WTA player party. Left with her in her Range Rover, and she went to at least one of his practice sessions.
End result, Kirlenko got to see her guy come thru Nole's section.
