During Andy USO final, I went to sleep at midnight with Andy leading by 2 sets to love (BBC livescore) thinking Andy would win in 3 or 4. When I woke up at 4 a.m., Andy just won in 5 and I was spared the anguish lol

You went to sleep during the live USO final?... whaaa???  shocking

I needed to go to work the next day and Andy seemed to have got things under control being 2 sets up. It was a good choice otherwise I would have sat there chewing my nails for another 2 hours with much anguish lol

Watching an Andy match knowing the score is about 100 times less interesting.

"I have a tough first-round match against Monfils. I played him five times and lost to him a couple of times. He is a great athlete, so that's a tough match to start," said Murray.

"Also I play the doubles with my brother. We managed to win the tournament last year. I hope we can have another good tournament."

Murray has a 3-2 win-loss record against Monfils, who is targeting a return to the top 10 in the world as he steps up his return from a knee injury that kept him out for four months.

Murray admitted that he is "a little bit" tired after winning the US Open, as the season reaches its climax. He spent two-and-a-half weeks at home with friends and family after New York.

"I think a lot of players are at this stage a little bit tired mentally and physically as well. You need to find the best way of managing that for the last couple of months of the year," said Murray.

"I also would like to play well in the tour finals in London. I didn't have the chance to do that last year. It was a very disappointing way to finish the year.

"I want to make sure I'm 100 percent fit for that tournament and try to finish the year well there."

Murray is in the same quarter of the draw with Beijing Olympic doubles gold medallist Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland, the seventh seed, and in the same half with third seed Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia.

Tipsarevic, the winner at Stuttgart this season, will play Gilles Simon of France in his opener. The sixth seed Milos Raonic, winner at San Jose and Chennai, will take on Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic.

The 2008 Japan Open champion Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic will spearhead the bottom half as the second seed. He will play Benoit Paire of France in the first round.

Also in the bottom half are local hope Kei Nishikori, the eighth seed, Juan Monaco of Argentina, the fourth seed, and the fifth seed Nicolas Almagro of Spain.

I'm glad Andy is looking to WTF.   Given that and given his tiredness perhaps we have to accept he won't perform as well on the Asian swing this year as last despite his Summer achievements and the fact he'll lose ranking points.  And a combination of tiredness and match rust not great when playing an athlete like Monfils even if the latter is coming back from injury.  And Monfils has some matches under his belt from last week.   Still I'd have thought a good chance Andy will win despite all that.
Where did you find the schedule Michelle as tournament website still seems to have Sunday schedule up?

Now that Andy has won his slam I'm hoping that he will bore me to death winning every match in two straight sets.I will be quite happy to be denied the usual ups and downs  I'm still not over the tensions of the US Open.

If a player plays doubles and singles but is a singles specialist usually, do the points he gains at doubles get added to his singles total or are they kept separate?
 According to the apt website Murray is not playing singles on Monday, at least on the centre court

They are kept separate bb.  Sounds like Andy will be starting tuesday then as no way they'd not put defending champ and top seed on another court I'm sure.

Wawa, Raonic, Tipsy, Berdych.   It's not going to be a walk in the park

But, JK, neither were the Olympics nor USO. However, didn't our man do well!
