Well, I hope he plays a lot better than against Giraldo.

 In Rome he had huge pressure (like Murray on Wimbledon), everybody was expecting him to win the title. He is out at first round, I am glad he hasn't f*** off the umpire!

Andy dropped his first serve of the second set, but broke straight back. On serve again.

Second set not quite as good as the first, but Andy takes it and the match 6-2 7-5. First serve % 81 - that's more like it. No Aces but safe serves in very windy, blustery conditions.

The key for Andy is to put 2 good performances together, something which he's found tricky this year.

Topsy-turvy match. Andy didn't play as well as yesterday, some poor patches which he had better not have tomorrow against (probably) Rafa. But then, though Melzer has never beaten him, I think they have all been tough matches - certainly all the ones I have seen.

 I think you will probably be right in the end, but right now, Youzhny has just taken the 1st set of Rafa in a TB.

Hmm, Rafa not exactly been his so often all conquering self this clay court season. And he took 3 sets to get past Simon in R2 after they shared two opening TB sets.

Would still prefer not to meet him in the QF here !!
