I'd much rather Andy plays Monfils than Wawrinka.

But on clay?

I'm looking forward to some hard or more particularly grass-court meetings, but never clay.

These are the matches tennis fans live for, i really don't understand people's apprehention when it comes to playing the big boys even if it's on their favourite surface. Federer is considered the king of grass yet Murray obliterated him in the Olympic final, Novak the king of hardcourts but Andy beat him in the US open final.

If Andy loses so what? it's not like he's favourite and it's not like he is alone in being the 2nd best when it comes to facing Rafa on clay, but that doesn't mean we can't get excited by the prospect of seeing an upset or even just to gauge how far Andy has progressed in Nadal's absence even on clay.

I'm pretty sure Andy will relish the prospect of playing Rafa, and so will Lendl, he lives for these type of games, heck i'm licking my lips already.

And had never beaten Federer in a slam before until the Australian open. There is always a first time for everything.

Andy has got a lot of monkeys of his back recently maybe its time to get the clay monkey of his back.  pray

Difference being Murray has a winning H2H against Federer and Grass is also HIS best surface, whereas clay is by far the worst.

No-one's saying you can't be excited. Just personally I'm not remotely fussed at a meeting with Rafa on clay.

Anyway, Murray's got to get there first.

Pretty sure Andy would love a go at Rafa on clay. Win or lose he'd see it as a learning opportunity. I'd love to see it!

I'm with you on that! As far as I'm concerned, anything our Andy wins on clay will be a bonus.......although we know he has been trying hard to improve his clay game, so we could be pleasantly surprised!  Whistle

It would be a lovely surprise if Andy had a clay triumph and did well in the French Open. Let's hope it happens.

Jamie Murray, with John Peers, beat Bryan Bros in Houston to win first title on clay ! - an omen ?

Andy has improved on clay over the years.He has also improved in self belief. It seems to me that it is the technique of sliding into shots that so far eludes him.I for one am looking forward to watching how he has progressed.

I don't think sliding eludes him, he has to take care with movements that could impact on his patella.
