It was a strange match last year when Andy lost to Mahut - I don't expect there to be a repeat this year. After not playing for a couple of weeks, I think Andy will be motivated to do well here. I'm glad he's avoided Berdych, but Tsonga will be tough on grass. Though I loved their 2011 final - lots of great shotmaking and netplay from both guys.

Mahut is still in Paris playing dubs final his preperation will be zero.

The thought of a Murray-Rosol QF is exciting. I hope Rosol gets to the quarters.

Concerning the other Brits, Kyle Edmund and Ed Corrie could play each other if they both win their first round matches, Ward has a tricky opener against Dodig and Dan Evans is playing Pella whoever the hell he is.

Interestingly concerning the draws debate, do we ever see other brits in the same section as Andy? i can't recollect it happening before at either Queens or Wimbledon, of course i could be wrong so feel free to correct me, but i get the impression that they would try to avoid the situation where Andy would meet a British WC in the first round.

Why does Andy have to have Mahut in his immediate draw? Mahut is one of those players who comes alive in the grass court season He finished Andy off last year Please no repeat We've waited so long for Andy to pick up a competitive racquet
   If he gets past Mahut the rest of his side of the draw does not look too bad

There is a chance Jamie Baker could be in his quarter.

Noticed Pella recently, because Brit no 11, Alex Ward (WR 439) lost to him in a close match in Dusseldorf qualifiers 4-6 6-2 6-7 (Ward won one more point than Pella!). Pella went on to beat Dustin Brown, Kubot, Tipsarevic, and Troicki before losing to Monaco in the SF. Pella then got a late acceptance to Roland Garros, beat Dodig in 5 sets (12-10 in the 5th), then lost to Djoko.

Steven ‏@GBtennis Queen's ATP: (WC) @Evo151216 gets Guido Pella ARG WR 83 (= CH) - ITF has no record of him having played a senior or junior match on grass b4

Ah that's good news then (from Andy's perspective). Will definitely help him if he can start with a straightforward match.

All being well Andy should be able to beat all of the guy's on his side of the draw. He's number 2 in the world for a reason. But that's only if his back is ok and i suppose until he plays some competitive tennis he won't truly know himself.

The draw looks a bright haven for Murray. He hardly has any grass court specialists to worry about in the early rounds. The first seed he will most probably meet will be the resurgent Pablo Andujar, who hasn't had many great results on the grass in the past, though he did beat James Ward at Wimbledon, two years ago. Then there's the case of Alexandr Dolgopolov or Lukas Rosol. Dolgopolov isn't a fan of the grass and is accustomed to lose early on it, plus his consistency this year is at zilch and so he could lose in the most unpredictable of fashions. Lukas Rosol's 2013 has been up and down, but his grass skills are indisputable, especially after Wimbledon last year. He could be the early test Andy needs. The two names that could cause Andy some trouble on grass is Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Benoit Paire. Paire actually made it to the third round of Wimbledon last year, losing to Brian Baker in four sets. Tsonga of course does not require a lot of research into his grass record. It's impressive, and he has stretched Murray to the very limits on the surface, but they have met at Queens before in the 2011 final, which Murray won. In the bottom half, there are a few names that can trouble Murray on grass. Berdych, Cilic and Querrey, perhaps even Dimitrov, who made the semis at Queens last year. Berdych and Murray have never actually met on grass before, so after Murray's woes on the clay and sometimes on the hard court against Berdych, this could prove to be a bit of a renaissance for Andy. Andy played Cilic last year at Wimbledon, during which was undoubtably Cilic's best grass court year, winning the Queens title and then making the fourth round of Wimbledon. Then we move onto Querrey, Querrey has played Murray twice on grass in Newport and Wimbledon, and is yet to take a set, this could prove advantageous for Murray. Of course, Murray has never played Dimitrov on grass either, so that match is unpredictable at this moment in time.

Hope that doesn't mean Andy has to wait until Wed to play his 1st match.  Thinking about it, that's exactly what it means because Mahut will play his 1st match Tues.  All  a bit crap + the rain arrives Wed and they'll play in the same conditions as last year.
