I bet they do. . . I tried to watch Armstrong yesterday on Eurosport Player and they were showing Ashe. Up to then they had showed nothing but Armstrong, at least every time I tried them. I'm wondering if they have a private agreement with Sky that they won't show Andy's matches.

Worryingly I am pretty relaxed about Andy's match which will be starting shortly. It would rate as a BIG shock if Lopez won. Best of luck Andy.

I'm the opposite CC. I was in NY in 2010 when Andy lost to Wawrinka in the 3rd round in pretty brutal conditions on Armstrong No Nails Left The only difference today being the opponent. My head keeps telling me to get a grip but the butterflies just won't go away.

No need for nerves MTS1. Just think of the head-to-head - Andy Murray 7 Feliciano Lopez 0. The only person who can beat Murray today is himself.

Andy will be fine. Wait and see. Granted Lopez is playing well but can't see him keeping it up. Even if Lopez wins this set I'd still fancy Murray to win. First set tie-break.

Feeling better MTS1? Okay a tight first set - much tighter than I was expecting but Lopez played above himself and still lost the set. That will hurt and following his four and a quarter hour marathon a couple of days ago will he have the stomach to go through the pain again?

I think now CC Lopez couldn't rally to win this match he looks pretty flat at the sit down. Nerves now a bit more settled just don't know why I've been this nervous, but Andy breaks in the first game so I might enjoy this now Very Happy

All the stats, facts and history pointed to a Murray win and the head-to-head was so one-sided it was untrue plus there is Andy's record against lefties. Lopez isn't the sort of opponent to strike fear into me. Too timid and he really does lack a bit of true belief in himself.

Murray just having one of those annoying dips again. Broke serve early in the second set and looking comfortable and then handed the break back tamely a few games later and Lopez leads 4-3 (on serve).

Yes but remember this is probably him at close to his best but Murray (you feel) has some more gears in there.

Got to credit Lopez for his performance today. Mentally far stronger than is his norm and has played the big points very well. Today the difference is character as Andy pulls the tie-break back from 1-4 down and now leads 7-6 7-6. Andy not playing his best but not playing bad either credit though must go to Lopez. Surely no way back for the Spaniard now.

Lopez wondering just what he needs to do to get even a set off Andy. Looking to the skies now, you gotta feel a little for him hugging

Right Andy no more gifts, pay attention and serve this match out, only two holds of serve required.
