Andy eases past Wild Card on Competitive Return in Doha
Andy has breezed into the second round of the Qatar Open in Doha in emphatic style, defeating wildcard Mousa Zayed in straight sets 6-0, 6-0.
In what was Andy’s first competitive match on the ATP tour since his back injury which ruled him out for 3 months, the world number 4 started very brightly and raced to a one set lead over the substantially lower ranked Qatari wild card, losing just seven points in the opening set. He then wasted very little time securing the second set and secured the match in just under 37 minutes.
Andy was pleased with his progress and was keen to get back out on the court after such a short match “It’s good to be back,” Andy said. “I will probably go and hit a few balls with my coach now as it was quite windy and there were not a lot of rallies in the match.”
Andy will now face either Germany’s Florian Mayer or Poland’s Michal Przysiezny for a place in the quarter-finals as he continues his rigorous preparations for the Australian Open.
