Andy at Rogers Cup 2012

Quote

I think it is an hard(court :P ) decision.

Andy can earn some good point to go close to Rafa, because he defends just 45 points and then he will have to try to defend title in Cincinnati.
But it is true too that choosing to play again next week can be a danger: he is tired and hard courts are not the best thing to have a rest.

Toronto's draw is a double face trouble too: play against Raonic&Isner can mean play fast matches, short rallies; but we know Andy and he could try to make miracles against their fast services. It is a risk for Andy's body.

Do you agree?

I am waiting for the decision. When will he have to declare his will?



Does it really matter if Andy does not play, he's earned 1500 extra points here by winning the gold, so if he does not defend Cincinnati whatever happens he'll still be in positive territory? can anyone help here with the maths?

Agree it s a potential easy 1000 points for Andy but really the only thing that matters is the US Open. I don't think he can play both Toronto and Cincinatti and expect to be 100% for Flushing Meadows. Maybe he could play Toronto then miss Cincinatti and  take 2-3 weeks rest before the US?

Andy only gets 750 for winning the gold. Where do you get 1500 from?

Yeaht, gold medal is 750 points. After London2012, between Murray and Nadal will be 700 points. I believe.

Toronto
Murray defends 45 points (Nadal too)

Cincinnati
Murray defends 1000 points (Nadal?)

Thanks for the correction i was under the impression that the winner was to get 1500 ranking points. i more than likely misread the information. Thanks again for the correction.

I think Andy is only defending 10 points at Toronto, as those that get byes have to win a match before getting round ranking points.

With 180 for Nadal, i believe that for Murray will be so difficult can become number 3 before New York (but if there he will... Smile )

For n.3 Murray has to play Toronto and play pretty nice in Cincinnati, because Nadal in Cincinnati can earn a lot of points.
So, i don't know... I would he plays it, but seriously it would be too dangerous for New York.

It's unlikely Andy will catch Nadal unless he has a great US Open and/or amazing finish to the season. Nadal picked up a LOT of points in the clay season and is defending barely anything from here on in (bar the 1200 at the USO).

From now until November Andy is defending:

Toronto 10
Cinci 1000
USO 720
Bangkok 250
Tokyo 500
Shanghai 1000
Paris 180

So not a lot to really be able to gain, bar London.
