Allez.

There is some form. These extremely slow conditions will favour Stan.
Such a pity that Thiem and Wawrinka are in the same section,
could have been easily the Semifinal,
as both can create extreme power in such slow conditions.

Winner of Thiem - Wawrinka (R4) to go all the way.

I think Andy should consider preparing himself to retire at Wimbledon next year.

Sorry to say my prediction came true. Will be interested to see what Murray says in post-match presser.

going out on a limb here and assume such result might not be favourable for the transcender in his bid to destroy djokovic in the final. could be wrong tho.

I would not be surprised if Stan will make it fo the SF or the F
He looked very sharp at this early stage of the tournament

Stan looked good, but everybody does against Murray these days so we got to check his next matches. Overall NID, particularly in these conditions, can't believe bookies had it relatively close. Murray is finished.

Murray needs to get testicle replacement with a pair of steel testicles as well.
But I thought it's all about the testosterone when talking about balls, do steel testicles have them, hehe.

Respect to Murray for showing up. He was not that good, to put it mildly.

Stan played a good match though. Solid first round! He needed to stay focused, because of course he notices Murray is playing far from his best.

Murray is Finnish, he just should retire ASAP for his legacy.

His 1st serve is gone, his FH and BH lost their edge, his anticipation and clutchness are totally 1/10 from what they were in his prime.
Embarassing performance today.
Surely there was more fight in him, but he didn't even show it today...

Awful conditions for Murray. Virtually impossible for him to create power, unlike SW, to hit through clay in these heavy conditions.

Honestly I'm not sure weather Andy disserved a wild card. As for Stan, we will in the next round how good he really is. Not so sure that he can hit through this condidations against better players.

Bizarre. There will be an influx of posts about retirement. However I have rarely if ever seen Murray play like that.

Completely different person to the guy in Cinci and the US Open. No energy, no fire, not even the slightest hint of anger.

Hard to understand.

Unexpectedly good from Stan, it's criminal that he is set to meet Thiem so early. On the other hand, the cyborg sadly needs an upgrade or two which he probably won't get. Sad to see a champion in such a state.
