RE: Weeks 21-22 - Roland Garros men's main draw (Andy)


Mr Murray v Mr Kyrgios first on Lenglen. Hmm. Morning Murray matches always worry me.

Much less so than they once did though. I think that Andy long ago got better with early starts. Although yes later would possibly still be a bit better.

I notice that just one of the seeds 25-32 reached their R3 appointment with seeds 1-8, or at least presumably Mr Kyrgios will appear.

Can't really complain though since often enough Andy's theoretical seeded opponents never get there.

Murray breaks for 4-3.

Shaping up to be the best quality match at RG so far this year?

awesome?

His first serve percentage is lousy.

Nick K is injured and, by his own admission, just rolling his serve in. It's a pretty poor match that Andy deserves to win, sure, but no more than that.

Disastrous decision by Kedders?

No. Going against doctor's advice, playing with injury and risking making is worse would have been a disastrous decision.

I'd have said quality a bit patchy from both players, but variety and entertainment value high.

Lousy serve or not Andy won Nick is very streaky brilliant tennis but no consistency

Given that this was a potential banana skin Andy finished the match off pretty comfortably in 3 sets although Krygios was limited by his arm in the 3rd set which helped.

Only major cause of concern was his first service percentage which needs to improve next week.

So far so good.........

I managed to see most of that - very kind of them to finish quickly or I would have had to miss more. A pity about Kyrgios injury problem, but I think Andy would have won anyway, he won the first set before the injury started to give problems.

Pity for Kyle, since if he was fully fit and Nick was as is, must be a more than usual chance that he would have won. But I agree that he was absolutely right to follow doctor's advice.

He still gathered 70 points in Paris, with a R2 win 'just' garnering another 45. Now there is a fair chance that an extra 45 could have helped him to top 100 on Monday week ( presently clinging on by his his fingernails ). But Kyle will be top 100 soon enough and has the longer term to think of and the grass season in the shorter term.

Must say I have been pretty impressed by Kyle ( and team )'s whole schedule and decision making this year, from one who was certainly less than impressed in the first half of last year.

Good for Andy, but it is always possible to look very good against less than fit opponents. I recall him crushing Cilic towards the end of an Australian Open match, and getting high praise from a few parts when essentially Cilic had been involved in a very long previous match, was by then still trying to rally but producing relelative powder stuff that a player like Andy, feeling good, revelled in pulverising to all parts. It's a great release when you sense that there is no longer any real threat.

Great thing is that Andy so far has not used up much energy. Even the Sousa match was over relatively quickly.

L32:  (3) Andy Murray WR 3 defeated (29) Nick Kyrgios (AUS) WR 30 by 4, 2 & 3

******

L16:  (3) Andy Murray WR 3 vs Jérémy Chardy (FRA) WR 45 (CH = 25 in January 2013)

The head-to-head is 6-1 in Andy's favour.  Andy last beat him by 4 & 3 in the L32 in Rome, so on clay, earlier this month.  The one & only victory for Chardy came in the L16 of the Cinci Masters in 2012, so the omens are good for a third appearance in the quarter-finals.
