Decent match, more of a step back for Andy with his style of play today. Wasn't aggressive very often, but knows how to play Dolgo. Strange to see him slamming racquets more often now that he has a slam. Must be the added expectations thing.
Smexynek is the next victim. He's been on good form this tournament, but Andy generally likes playing against his style of player.
So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...
THAT MATCH. That remains my favourite from attending the AO this year. I was actually planning to be at Rod Laver that evening but then I was all "NO MUST SEE MURRAY" and my tour guide lady managed to give me a front row seat and it was awesome.
Sounds like an anodyne score but it was a bit of a crazy match - Andy always the better player Roger had moments of brilliance and a LOT of mess, including those 3 DFs in a row to be broken in game 5 of the first set
And a huge break in the Match because it started to rain and it took for forever to close that roof! And next up is Nole And for some reason I keep wanting to type his name as Noel! I had better not do that in GM
