Week 24 - ATP World Tour 250 - London (Grass)


Obviously Andy has a bye in round 1 but after that he has quite a nice draw avoiding the dangerous floaters who could have been a serious threat in R2 before he had any chance to adjust to grass.

R2: Bedene / Mathieu

R3: Stepanek / Tomic

QF: Anderson / Pospisil

SF: Berdych / Gulbis

F: Wawrinka / Tsonga / Dimitrov / Dolgopolv

That SF looks scary but then it was always going to. The draw is kind until then, however, and gives him a good half a week to get more preparation on the green stuff.

Today's win was Andy's:

- 18th singles win in a row against Frenchmen in all competitions (*)
- 19th singles win in a row on grass
- 20th singles win at Queen's (in matches that started)

(*) he has an even longer streak against them in slams

Well done, Andy. Never really got out of second gear, but didn't need to.

Murray's attitude in the second set has been simply disgusting.

An all too common feeling this year. Utterly disappointing.
