Everybody seems reluctant to start this. . . so, this is the very first time I have started a thread on MTF!

I'm just praying that he doesn't get another tricky floater in the first round, it seems to me he has had more than his fair share of them. Go Andy!

I'm actually rather worried about the prospect of Robredo in R3. Andy has never actually beaten him: the H2H is 2-1 to Robredo, who beat Andy on hard courts the first two times and retired in the last match. He is good on clay.

I have a sneaky feeling Tipsarevic might be his oppo in rd 3. :shrug: Unpredictably brilliant.

Andy was trashing him though in Miami and I'm not persuaded that was all about the wrist.

However, on clay he shouldn't be taken lightly.

Good luck Andy

Im worried by Bolleli..seems like a potential hiccup but hopefully he'll get through!!

I think he should be ok against Bolelli. In Madrid last year (when it was played on hard) Andy was beating him 6-0 2-1 when Bolelli retired.

The also played in that one-set exho in memory of Luzzi - I can't remember the score, but Andy won despite the fact somebody said he was "experimenting" with various shots - and that was on clay.

(I just hope I haven't jinxed him!)

I hope so too.

He's a player I can see giving Andy problems if Andy is off his game...but otherwise Andy should be able to see him off relatively comfortably.

After Monaco in Rome I'm not feeling over-confident but hopefully this one will go better.

For some reason I can't edit the above post to get rid of the typo - for "the" at the start of the second sentence, read "they".

They are running very late on that court, Montanes/Melzer are into a third set and there is still another entire match before Andy - I can see I'm going to miss his match as I have to be out tonight. :sad:

scoobs
05-12-2009, 04:06 PM
yes this is quite tiresome. if Ljubicic-Tsonga goes to three it could be 6pm UK time or later when he gets on court, which will be very inconvenient for me as I have people coming round tonight.

On his worst surface, Murray is a brawler with brains. Well done!

I was out and couldn't watch that match, it sounds like it could have been a bit worrying.

Robredo next. They have only met on hard courts before, with the H2H 2-1 in Robredo's favour, and the one Andy won was by retirement. Robredo can be very good on clay so I'm a bit :unsure: about this one. Andy will have to play well - fingers crossed.

amdany
05-13-2009, 04:17 PM
yep, I'm a bit worried too because Robredo is good sometimes...but let's hope for the best!!

05-13-2009, 05:05 PM
Robredo will be a challenge. Murray will have to play more attacking tennis.

Babolat - Dan
05-13-2009, 06:26 PM
Robredo will be very difficult. Andy's h2h record isnt very good, is it?

05-14-2009, 12:28 AM
Andy is a much better player now than he was when Robredo last beat him in 2007. Still, it's clay. . .

Betty
05-14-2009, 08:43 AM
no easy but a good andy could do it:scared:

he'll play not before 12 pm maybe i'll saw something, i hope, i'll be at home at 13.30:unsure:

I had to miss nearly all the match, but I attempted to record the livestream - I hope it worked!

I confess I was worried about Robredo, but I'm a dreadful pessimist. I should have more faith in Andy.

I don't get in here often, but I'm still following Andy :D A great win for him. I keep wanting him to do better on clay. I remember reading when Andy was younger he trained some in Spain so I know he was training on clay courts there.

Oh well we will see what happens at RG. Hopefully he can make QFs or better there.
