Yes, my mistake again I meant 5live extra cos 5 are up to their eyes in daily news
It's another way of BBC wanting us to buy digital radios You can get it on TV though if you can stay in one place at that hour in the morning

 5pm ( Melbourne time) on Hisense I believe

not rod laver?  that sounds like a bit of a snub for his first match (even Ferrer on RLA tomorrow) but at least not in the hottest part of the day though will still be pretty hot I guess.  Can someone remind me what the time difference is please ie what will 5pm Adelaide time be in UK (not that I think I'll be able to watch).
have just looked at schedule and on 2nd thoughts probably better for Andy to be on Hisense later than RLA in hottest part of day, an honour given to smugfed.  And I gather it will be 6am GMT.


am getting confused about the S Times piece.  People are talking about Rafter but it says Cash? And also I don't think the good luck wish comes from the quote but from mp  confused

Re the S. Times piece -you are right, Ruthie. The article is by Pat Cash [p13 of the paper copy of the Sports section]; and the good luck wish was from me [only positive vibes!]

poster_oops  I should have had the sense to know that PC would refer to Andy as Murray, and also that writers of articles don't usually offer particular players good luck.  Maybe I should start going to bed earlier!

It seems it isn't only Andy who has, but hopefully had, back problems.

"Go Soeda to tackle Andy Murray with Italian help" [Guardian, 12 Jan]
By Kevin Mitchell

Whether or not the fine Japanese player Go Soeda falls at the first time of asking in the Australian Open, against Andy Murray in killing heat on Tuesday, he will do his best to play like an Italian.

"It's going to be so hot, 39 degrees," his Italian coach, Davide Sanguinetti, said. "Actually, my guy is pretty good with the heat. I think Andy will make him run a lot. It's a good thing his name is Go."

Soeda joked: "He says that I need to be more Italian – like cheat, or something. I am too polite. Japanese players are normally quiet and reserved. [Kei] Nishikori is quiet but he is trying to change as well. That is the Japanese culture. It might be nice on the street or in a restaurant but it's not a good thing on the tennis court.

"I think I need to use [Sanguinetti's] mentality. He always says to me that I need to make myself bigger on court, to show my opponent. I am getting better at doing it but I need to do it more. Sometimes now I do lose my temper on court, like an Italian. I have nothing to lose so I'm going to play my best.

"He has everything – good serve, groundstrokes, movement. I need to do everything great." He said of the Scot's paucity of competition since his back operation in September: "Andy has already played a few matches, so it is no big deal but in the first round everybody gets nervous, so if I start well maybe I will have a few chances in the first set."

Soeda, although ranked 112 in the world, is the sort of player who might prove to be a trickier opponent than his CV suggests.

As Sanguinetti said: "He has nothing to lose. He is not playing that bad, he is playing good. I thought maybe we have a chance to go further but he needed a good draw and we didn't get it. This is my third year with Go. I took him when he was 250, got to 47 last year but then we had some injury problems and he went back in the rankings."

Soeda said the back injury was a major setback and he did not win between February and April. "I lost confidence. I was struggling but from Wimbledon onwards I got my confidence and things got better.

"I need to have a strong core. Every day I work on my back. My problem is that my back is curved and I need to be more upright. Every day I have a pole to help me stand up straight. It took me two or three months to start playing normally again but I didn't have surgery."
