This is one of my favourite tournaments (no prize for guessing why Very Happy)

Andy is seeded 9th. Full info here: http://www.rogerscup.com/men/english/currentNews.php?id=SEEDINGS_ANNOUNCED_FOR_2014_ROGERS_CUP_PRESENTED_BY_NATIONAL_BANK


SEEDING

1 Novak Djokovic (SRB)
2 Rafael Nadal (ESP)
3 Roger Federer (SUI)
4 Stan Wawrinka (SUI)
5 Tomas Berdych (CZE)
6 David Ferrer (ESP)
7 Milos Raonic (CAN)
8 Grigor Dimitrov (BUL)
9 Andy Murray (GBR)
10 Kei Nishikori (JPN)
11 John Isner (USA)
12 Ernests Gulbis (LAT)
13 Richard Gasquet (FRA)
14 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga (FRA)
15 Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP)
16 Marin Cilic (CRO)

I'm guessing Andy will not receive a bye and will play 1st round? (never understood all that stuff)

Draw will take place tomorrow, my time 4:00pm (UK time 9:00pm)

I think all 16 seeds recieve a bye. Could be wrong though.

I'll be keeping an eye on Kyrgios during this event, hope he doesn't play Andy.

I thought that too, but from what I've just googled it looks like he won't receive a bye since Masters usually only give byes to the top 8 seeds, although there are exceptions. Extra byes are only given if the tournament doesn't have its full quota of players.

Your enthusiasm and impatience must be getting to you Linda. hug  The draw takes place on Friday at these times.

That's right - Andy won't get a bye. Indian Wells and Miami offer byes to the top 16 seeds as they have bigger draws but the other Masters events only give byes to the top 8.

So Andy will play unseeded players in rounds 1 and 2, and then one of Berdych/Ferrer/Raonic/Dimitrov in round 3. Could be tough, but playing an extra round may help him get into form ahead of the tougher matches.

At least Andy will get a bye now. Sad for Rafa though.

Yeah.. just found out about that. Shame for Rafa, and I was hoping to see him play. He's the only one of the top 4 I haven't seen live. He's going to be in a cast. Too bad.

On a personal note.. I'm happy Andy won't be playing until Tuesday earliest because I'm away until Monday afternoon.

Thankfully it'll also change the players he's likely to meet.  I really didn't fancy his chances too much against any of these four, apart from maybe Ferrer against whom he has an excellent hard court record.
