Isn't it strange and somehow wonderful on the Monday after Roland Garros when you switch your TV on and the screen is suddenly all bright green and blue?
Yes it is!
My favourite time of the year and though I'm 12,000 miles away, I won't let it spoil my chance of seeing some Andy tennis.
Andy's appearance at Queens seems to have a question mark over it and though it would be disappointing not to see him there, I'd rather him conserve his energy for Wimbledon.
Here's what he had to say about QueensDefending champion Andy Murray is considering pulling out of next week’s AEGON Championships at Queen’s to ensure he can mount a credible bid for a first Wimbledon title.
The British No1 was beaten 6-4, 6-7, 6-3, 6-2 by sixth seed David Ferrer in a rain-interrupted French Open quarter-final last night and then admitted he is still short of the fitness needed to win a maiden Grand Slam.
He has battled to control a back problem since December and the world No4 thinks he needs “five or six days” of specific work with his trainers to get him ready for Wimbledon.
Murray’s loss would be a huge blow to the Queen’s tournament, which starts on Monday a fortnight before the grass-court Grand Slam.
He said: “I will sit down and discuss this event [Queen’s] and the best way to prepare. It is not a disaster if I can’t play a tournament before Wimbledon.
“I need to get some good physical work done and that will be important. It’s about when that can be done —whether it’s over the next five, six days before I play at Queen’s or the four or five days I would have after Queen’s before Wimbledon. Novak Djokovic didn’t play before the Australian Open this year and I don’t believe he played before Wimbledon last year.
“That is why I will need to speak to all the guys and discuss when the best time to start is. I probably could do with a day or two off as well.”
I would like to see some more of this
