    US Open 2011, R3: Andy flips Floppy: 6'1, 6'4, 6'2 :-))

    Seconds out - Round the third.

    Feli Lopez was having a good time at Wimbledon 2011 - until he bumped into Andy Murray on song in the Quarter Final. The straight sets win sent Andy to the Semi's and Feli back home ......... and took their H2H to 5-0 in Andy's favour.
    http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/Head-To-Head.aspx?pId=MC10&oId=L397

    They meet again on Sunday in R3 and it's to be hoped Andy can again win in 3 sets - to conserve his energy all the way to the Final ......

    Feli had a tough match against Pospisil who fought hard and came close to making it a 5 set match but the Spaniard won 7'5, 4'6, 7'6, 7'6 in 3hrs 20mins.

    Andy had an equally tough match against Haase but finally won it 6'7, 2'6, 6'2, 6'0, 6'4 in approx 4hrs.

    Will Feli break his duck this time around - or will Andy cook his goose.

    It's late. The puns are rubbish.

    Catch the match sometime on Sunday!

    Well Haase didn't really need any weapons, Andy was fighting him and himself on court. So we need the real Andy Murray to turn up to this one or, as he said himself, he could be on the way home.

    If it's business as usual then dare I say, Andy should be ok........off to find that anti-jinx potion again Embarassed

    I hope Andy doesn't go easy on him (Feli) for Judy's sake. I want to see an emphatic victory this time!

    Enigmatic quote from Andy after Round 2, about this match:

    "I need to try and make sure I get my emotions right in the next match, make sure I get the crowd involved a bit, show some fist pumps and 'C'mons!' That's what I always did when I was a kid, and that's when I felt like I always moved my best, when I enjoyed playing tennis the most."

    and Feli's take on the match (both courtesy of BBC USOpen quotes:

    "I'm not going to beat Andy playing from the baseline and waiting for him to miss. I have to be really aggressive, to play my game, and to believe. This is what I have to do." Feliciano Lopez sets out his plan for beating Murray in round three.

    I'm not worried at all about this match. Haase was the only player I was worried about in Andy's quarter, and he's got past him. If Feli's serve is working he'll get a few free points on that, but there's nothing else he can do. Andy will win virtually all the baseline rallies. Feli will come to the net as much as he can but Andy will manage to pass him most of the time.

    Andy certainly has matched well with Lopez and this should be more comfortable but I'm still taking anything for granted. Andy knows he will need to step it up from now on! Got a hunch that this will be a night match but shall watch it live regardless, though I need to work on Monday!

    Seeing as it's Sunday perhaps Andy will finally get the night match. He certainly is owed one. But there's Rafa. However, as the main network American broadcaster hits its peak during the afternoon I suspect Rafa will be on then and they'll stick Andy in the pm where there is no CBS coverage. I have a feeling ESPN takes over the nighttime coverage.

    When I watched Rafa's night match ealier in the week the only streams were of ESPN. I wasn't impressed with their coverage.

    I have no problem with ESPN, just Dick Enberg on CBS I can't stand.

    They kept going away from the match to show a couple of games or so of other matches. And the commentators both talked non stop the whole time and even talked over each other.

    True. I guess I'm used to it. They switch between matches every few games for blocks of five-minute ads. Delightful. I like the commies for the most part.

    Yesterday I had to have both Rafa and Andy's matches on the computer coz they were showing Young.

    Yes, I had the two live streams both up on my computer at the same time - the TV here doesn't show the USO unless you have Sky.

    Just knew he'd be on at night. They did the same thing last year as I recall. I'm sure it'll get Andy all fired up playing in the evening even though it's really a diss from the tv people.
