Nadal & Murray unconvincing winners in Paris!


Five-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal again looked unconvincing as he booked a place in the third round at Roland Garros with a straight-sets win over fellow Spaniard Pablo Andujar. Nadal recovered from two sets to one down to beat John Isner in round one having not dropped a single set in his 2010 triumph, and he was similarly lacklustre in his 7-5 6-3 7-6 (7/4) victory over Andujar, having to save eight set points in the third set.

Andy Murray declared his mental game to be in great shape after coming through a tricky test against both Simone Bolelli and the conditions in the second round of the French Open. The Italian lucky loser served for both the first and third sets but Murray showed his fighting qualities to battle back and secure a 7-6 (7/3) 6-4 7-5 victory on Court Philippe Chatrier. The wind was the main talking point at Roland Garros on Thursday and the world number four was well aware of the danger it posed after watching Kim Clijsters crash out before him. Murray said: “You just have to try to win and not worry about how you hit the ball or anything else.

“I was happy with the way I fought and came back from two very difficult situations in the first and third sets when he was serving for it, and hung in well when I needed to.
