First, I join BBC’s David Law and other experts and tweeters in praising Daniela Hantuchova’s honest and humble analysis. The former no.5 and two-time quarter finalist here is quickly establishing herself as an essential pundit combining her regular duties on Amazon Prime with her own daily series on the Tennis Channel and now appearing on Law’s essential Tennis Podcast.
Halep, Murray, Federer and Dimitrov are all picked apart with a knowledge and modern player’s insight usually lacking from others.
Anyway, after yesterday’s results went almost exclusively by the formbook – only Cornet and Vandeweghe were slight shocks – we look ahead to Day 3 and the best it has to offer:
Murray Vs Verdasco (Murray in 4)
Giorgi Vs Venus (Giorgi in 3)
Goerges Vs Makarova (Goerges in 3)
Anderson Vs Chardy – Last year’s finalist Anderson looked rusty on Monday and Chardy is always a danger, could be a talking point.
