RE: Weeks 3 & 4 - Australian Open (men's)


Andy gets six and a half out of ten from the Aussie Eurosport commentator and I wouldn't disagree with that. Bhambri played well considering his ranking.

On to better things.

Just to tidy it up - Andy Murray def. Yuki Bhambri 6-3 6-4 7-6(3).

Trying to find a replay. . .

H2H 3-0, including a 3 & 2 win in Hopman Cup this month. Andy also won 2 & 2 at Queen's in 2013 & 6-3 6-1 6-3 in R2 at Roland Garros last year.

ok, despite looking at the schedule for the first day I couldn't see any Brits on the list. how did I miss Andy's match but good to wake up and see he'd got through it ok. I find it difficult to know how Andy will do this tournament, not even sure that Andy knows but I didn't expect him to win the US Open and he did. So will see - one gone, six to go.

Another early one. Andy is scheduled for second on MCA (play starts at 11 AUS time)

First match on MCA is ( for some reason ) Klara Koukalova vs Julia Goerges at 11 am local, midnight GMT, followed by Andy vs Matosevic.

I rather thought that Andy would get an upgrade to RLA for this one, Andy vs an Aussie. But Roger and Rafa are there again.

At least he is used to the court.

I hope Eurosport put on another replay tomorrow afternoon so I can watch the match. 1.30 as yesterday would be fine, I would have to go out before the end but if I pause the livestream I might be able to watch the rest when I get back.

pleased to say I don't think I've seen any retirements yet at this tournament. a little surprising as there were so many at the grand slams last year. it did look a little windy yesterday with the ball girl/boys caps flapping around so maybe that helps with the heat.

I don't know about the Ladies, but Robredo retired. Still just one is a big improvement on last year.

Another comprehensive win against Matosevic for Andy

L64: (6) Andy Murray WR 6 beat Marinko Matosevic (AUS) WR 81 (CH 39 in 2013) by 6-1 6-3 6-2

L32: (6) Andy Murray WR 6 v Joćo Sousa (POR) WR 55 (CH 35 last Jul)

H2H 3-0, all in straight sets - AO R2 2013, Cincy & Acapulco 2014

Nice win after the rusty start in the first round. It's so important he gets to the QFs in good shape. Two more wins and it's game on and late nights for us all.

He did look in good shape and made short work of Matosevic. The only downside I noticed was a few service wobbles mid-match when 'Mato' managed to pull his game together sufficiently to threaten briefly.

I'm hoping Eurosport does a replay of the match at 1.30 as they did on Monday.
