The AAMI Classic 2012 started today… eventually… after a few stops and starts due to classic Melbourne summer time rain and unpredictable weather.
Although the rain cleared up, it was really windy which made it tough for the players. At one point the linesman’s hat was blown off and Berdych had a few missed attempts at serving because the ball blew away before he could hit it.
Here’s a few little gems that Andy Roddick shared with the crowd in reaction to the wind during his highly entertaining match against Monfils:
- “One ball falls short and the next one flies, I have no idea where it’s going”
- “The wind is giving me a tough time, that ball was going out but it blew back in”
Despite the wind the show went on. View the results from today’s play on the AAMI Classic website.
