A lot of the guys that were going to be seeded have withdrawn, and obviously no Nadal this year, so going to be a lot of guys a bit lower ranked than usual getting seeding I'd imagine.

I'd be very surprised if it's not another Murray/Tsonga final, although Tipsarevic is a big contender this year as well. Simon is also playing, so four big names right there.

Qualifying has started already. Brian Baker, Ryan Sweeting and Denis Kudla all seeded. Five Brits all playing (Fitzpatrick, Eaton, Bogdanovic, Oakley, Whiteford) but none expected to get to QR2, bad enough qualify.

Oh. Just seen the results.

Bogdanovic lost 6-7, 6-3, 6-7. Frown

Eaton however beat the much higher ranked Jouan 2&2.

Whiteford lost 1&2.

Oakley lost 3&4 to Bubka.

So just Eaton in QR2 then.

Edit: Okay, the ATP app sucks. Fitzpatrick lost the first set 2-6 but Delic retired with Fitzpatrick 2-0 up in the 2nd, not the other way around. So huge chunk of luck for Fitzpatrick, who will play Bobby Reynolds in QR2.

#AEGONChampionships singles draw: @andy_murray has a bye in the 1st round. Plays Garcia-Lopez or Nicolas Mahut in the 2nd round

#AEGONChampionships singles draw: @andy_murray will either play Dimitrov, qualifier, Broady or Muller in round 3 if he gets through

^^ Thanks for posting that.  Will feast my eyes on it and hope the scenario will be repeated this year. Smile


Just saw that on facebook too John. He's back at work already "Back at queens, training today pumped for the start of the grass court season!"

And from Maggie May:
Euros Shmeuros... Rusty and Mr. Lendl have very different opinions as to what's worth watching on the television.


lmao  I agree it's great Lendl is staying at his house.  Fortunately I think it's big enough so they won't be constantly tripping over each other, also Dani will be staying there too, as he usually does during the grass-court season, and Mum usually turns up for Wimbledon, so it'll be quite a party!

Thanks John. Cannot wait to see Andy on grass again. yay It's been sooo looong...
DelPo has withdrawn.
Quite a few no-shows: Fish, Gasquet, Wawrinka, Young, Falla, Harrison.
Looking to seeing my spartan Hewitt back on grass.  Guy never quits.
Andy looks so comfortable on grass.  What a shame the season is only 4 weeks, although at least we have the Olympics this year as well.
Not surprised about Delpo or Fish (who's recovering from a relatively minor heart procedure).  However my lovely leetle Simon will be playing ... tender ... just so long as he's not playing Andy!  Glad to see Hewitt as well - what a guy, and another player who spurned football (Australian Rules) in favour of tennis.

Hope the Weather Gods smile kindly pray but no wonder the grass looks so lush.

Thanks Elena. Smile  By the way - do you guys realise you can get various links to tournaments on the main webpage of MW under "TOURNAMENT INFO".  Not that I'm telling you this because it's me that keeps it updated ... Whistle

Great should be a  Murray and Tsonga draw which happened last time. Good luck Andy, he needs a good workout before wimbledon.

Tessie hope it wasn't C4 you emailed as it's ITV who has been carrying RG with Jim C's commentary and the wonderful Fabrice.  wub
 If anyone has itv  email address to hand perhaps they could post it so more of us could send in positive feedback?

Sorry Ruthie senior moment I meant ITV4 I just found the website and used the link to contact them with comments about programes.

I'm not sure about Channel 4, but maybe we should copy the BBC in to our positive feedback to ITV!

I just did and had forgotten what a nail-biter it was (also the two hotdogs!).  High quality tennis from both players.

If Andy Roddick can give our guy some kudos, perhaps some doubters on here could too:
