    Andy has drawn Ugo Humbert in the first round. They have played each other once, with Andy beating the Frenchman 3-6 7-5 6-2 in the semi final before going on to take the title in Antwerp in October 2019.

    If Andy plays like he did in NY he'll stand a great chance, if he plays like he did in Rennes, well not so much.

    I'm quietly hopeful - personally unsurprised Andy didn't pick up where he left off in NY, after break of several weeks. Hopefully Rennes down to rustiness rather than injury, especially since no rumblings from journos who are very quick to pick up on bad news. Let's see.

    Here's hoping Andy can find form, avoid ridiculous toilet-breakers and stay healthy this autumn. Good luck Andy!

    Now they have changed their minds and have him playing on Tuesday, which I imagine could be correct!!

    Q Schnur leads WC Pouille by 1-0 sets, 3-3 in the 2nd with Schnur to serve.

    Andy's match follows this; I'm betting this one will go to 3 if Pouille gets his act together.

    You are right - third set starting - so I won't be able to watch Andy live tonight. Hope he plays well.

    Pouille takes the 2nd set; into a 3rd set we go.
