    For me, not so much the 7 blown match points as the inevitability of losing on Koepfer's first.

    Very tight but such a disappointment after fighting back and seemingly having the match in his grasp, however credit to Koepfer who was strong mentally in the 3rd set. Still some great shots from Andy if not enough of them and should hopefully be promise for the future.

    What a match that turned out to be in the end, especially the 3rd set. I'm still trying to process that Andy actually lost it. I'm in shock! This is definitely a hard one to take. I'm too shook to find more words!

    That was torture. He looked like he was half-asleep for over an hour. Serve not working, - but against crucial break points finds aces, sometimes more than one in a game. But serving for the match in a tie-break, he can't.
    Jesus, he's complex!
    He's also making wrong-shot choices some of the time, - he never used to. I would have thought after all these Tour years it would be instinctive. ????

    I am sorry he lost, but the fact he is playing at all, given his hip is flipping impressive. He just wasn’t there today. It has always happened to him. He was psyched up to play one player that he was probably fully prepared for and then switched at the last moment.

    Tiebreaks to me always seem to be determined more by luck than anything else.

    After that performance I'd put money on Andy splitting from Jamie Delgado at the end of the year. He's in the Amelie and Miles M mould - lovely people but wishy-washy coaches.

    Funny I just read on Twitter someone saying maybe itís time for a change of coach.

    He certainly needs something different to break this funk!

    Absolutely. Watch this space, if he can't reunite with Lendl I wouldn't be surprised if he hires someone of a similar feisty/dynamic ilk. Andy's a gentle person, he thrives with a coach who counterbalances that, not softies like himself.
