Solid win.

Wins 6-3 6-4. Little blip when his first serve was nowhere to be seen and he handed one of the double breaks back, but he got there in the end.

Well done lad.

I'll forgive him the minor blip in the second set, after 21 matches in 35 days.

Well, generally not playing much at all ahead of Masters tournaments and coming in fresh / rusty hasn't been too successful for Andy in the last year or two.

So a chance to compare and contrast with playing the previous 5 weeks in a row, going all the way to the title in the last two and seemingly totally exhausted at the end of last week.

Maybe rest is overrated :)

Seriously, I think somewhere between the two may be best.

I guess a counterpoint to being rusty in Masters is that he did win Slams in 2012 and 2013, which he did say was his huge focus then. So... ?

Today was always going to be a little easier, after a couple of days rest and of course still the huge mental motivation. Love to see a tight match against Nole if he has enough gas left, to prove that we can really get excited about next year.

I'm more worried at the moment about whether he has enough in the tank to get past Dimitrov, who has just bageled Cuevas!

Coup Droit do you know of a livestream that will work in France. The ones I used last Sunday blanked out after a while. Would subscribe to tennistv and was assured last night that it is not blocked but today a message came up that provider wasn't valid. Don't seem able to check again without paying.

Andy handled Cuevas 6-2 6-2 in Beijing I believe, although Dimitrov did look great in parts yesterday. Surely there can only be one thing going through Andy's mind besides the WTFs and that is Wimbledon.

First set to Muzz 6-3 after Dimitrov double faults on set point. Playing well so far, very solid.
