Andy Wins in Monte Carlo
Andy has stormed into the third round of the Monte Carlo Masters after sweeping aside Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin in straight sets.
Andy flew out of the blocks racing into a 4-0 lead. He faced little resistance from his French opponent in the first set and comfortably closed out the set 6-1. Andy’s french opponent returned to the match in the second set in a much livelier fashion, however Andy secured an early break to stay in charge of the second and he withstood a break-back point to ensure he led 4-2. His opponent managed to hold serve however Andy comfortably served out the match and secured the set 6-4, to win the match.
Speaking after the match Andy said “I got to 4-0 early on which helped, I think he was a bit nervous, didn’t move that well at the beginning and then he started to play better. He was getting a lot of balls back and I tried to attack as much as I could. It’s a positive and good start.”
Andy now faces the world number seventeen Stanislas Wawrinka and is third on Court Central tomorrow.
