"Murray's first test may come against Melzer in the third round". Er,
have you ever heard of Nisikori, Melzer's first-round opponent, Chris?

God, he is so annoying - get rid of him and get someone else in
there!!!

Definitely Bailey - this is on BBC coverage. Bailey now lives in
Australia and so is brought in to do the AO stuff.

Bradnam is still there on Eurosport - "stunning!"

Unfortunately Simon Reed isn't a lot better - though Frew McMillan and
Wilander are good as the experts sitting alongside

Chris Bailey? You're sure it's not Bowers (mostly OK) or Bradnam (a
maddening)?

Well, Melzer to me is all flash and no substance - I don't understand
how Murray nearly lost to him.

I thought that on paper Nishikori would have a good chance to win v
Melzer, but didn't realise that the match was already on when Bailey
made the comment - he must have known that Melzer was going to win but
he didn't mention anything about it at the time.

He also said that Nadal and Murray have the easiest draws of the top
four players - seems bizarre

Sounds like a good analysis. Melzer beat Nishikori easily, and really
should have beaten Murray at USO.

Yes, I've always said that Chris Bailey is a very underrated
commentator ... :-)

He must have seen the score since the match was on at the same time,
but he never mentioned it.

He's still annoying anyway ...

Nishikori is very talented, but I'm sceptical that a 150 lb guy can
have consistant success in the modern game.

maybe he's watching or knows something that you are not.
Melzer is up up 7-5, 4-0 on Nishikori. At this point Melzer is 24-3 on
winners.
He's playing a real aggressive tennis atm.

Not sure why you have a problem with that. Melzer is clearly favourite
to beat Nishikori.

Murray, of course, won't be troubled by either.
