Andy storms past Tomic in Miami
Andy has stormed into the third round of the Miami Open after defeating Bernard Tomic in straight sets.
Both players were slow to start breaking each other respectfully, however it was andy that seized the moment midway through the first and broke again winning the set 6-3. In a clear swing of momentum, Andy was simply to strong for the young Australian, who despite holding his first service game of the second set, eventually crumbled losing the second set 6-1.
Speaking after the match Andy admitted he hadn’t played his best tennis, saying “No matter how you start your match you need to make your opponent work hard. I didn’t hit it unbelievable today but I worked hard. Once I got the breakthrough he made mistakes. But it is unbelievably hot and windy. It’s tough to feel comfortable, I was maybe more than my opponent because I am used to the court and the wind and the humidity.”
Andy now faces Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov in the third round.
