I'm surprised Aileen. I remember it being popular on the radio, especially when it was the Olympics there in 1992.
Maybe because I never listen to the radio!
I do see your point Katie, and I appreciate it takes him time to adapt to this surface but looking at his runs on Clay last year, he certainly seems to appear to have realistic chances to be going deep in the clay masters and the FO than before therefore it is a tricky one I do see what you are saying, but I also feel staying fresh for the summer is crucial! But he has a good team around him and I am sure Lendl will have a good idea of how to man that schedule!
And I take your point - but Andy is very fit and, as you say, Lendl and his team will make sure he stays that way. He'd have played Barcelona last year had it not been for injury. Also thanks to early exit in IW, two w/os in Miami, and going out in the QF in MC, he really hasn't played all that much tennis since the AO.
In addition, Andy badly needs more ranking points. He missed a big chance in IW where he had none to defend, but, as he has none to defend here, this is another opportunity for him.
Well chances are Djokovic might not play. Yeah he's kept on playing this week but can't see him missing his grandfathers funeral and I'd imagine that would be later next week sometime.
I didn't know Djokovic was playing. Anyway his grandfather's funeral is being held today and Djokovic isn't attending for reasons stated here - http://bleacherreport.com/tb/bgf7V?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=newsletter&utm_campaign=tennis
