Welcome once again to the Andy Boys!
Hope your feeling is right, AAF (Shane?)
I've no idea what Andy will do in the run-up to this tournament, but one thing is certain - he needs a bit more space to enable him to come to terms with Ross's illness. I've no doubt though that Lendl and the team will be bearing this in mind and will be handling the situation with sensitivity.
Meanwhile the Kooyong Classic player list is full, with Berdych having just claimed the 8th slot, although I'll be surprised if Nishikori plays given his knee problem. I can't see Andy wanting to take his place, but he might opt for an exhibition match.
