Sounds cool. Let's hope it lightens Andy's mood and helps him regain his confidence/hunger!

Think so.  Wonder why Andy decided to go with him rather than Auckland, the Brit, who had originally asked Andy to play doubles and  has a higher doubles ranking?? dontknow

i think djokovic is a better player generally tho and prob has a lower doubles ranking cos hes a decent singles player and hasnt really played much doubles (look at andys doubles ranking).also if hes someone he knows from the junior tour then he would prob want to play more with a friend than some random brit he prob doesnt know very well

Andy is also quite friendly with two other teenagers in the top 100, France's Gael Monfils and Serbian Novak Djokovic, having known them for several years, too.

At least by continuing in the tournament he will get some more match time on court and not have to resort to practice sessions, very good idea especially doing it with a friend, it'll lighten his mood. goodjob

yeah and its also prob a better idea to play doubles at a grand slam than singles ta  a smaller tournament cos inevitably it will be bigger and a better atmosphere etc. interesting that none of the top young teenagers seemed to get past the first round

How come he can still enter the doubles, is there no cut off point as in singles that they have to have there names in by?  Obviously not as he is in the draw, but just wondering if anyone knows why its different for doubles?  confused

dont know if it has anything to do with it but it makes good financial sense for the competetion organisers cos it means if big name players who would expect to do well go out early in the singles and werent planning to play doubles then some of them (such as andy and djokovic) can still enter the doubles.

I suppose, at least we can still see Andy play even if it is just for one more match.  Djokovic is from Serbia and Montenegro, isn't this one of the teams that Andy might have to face in the Davis Cup? Think
