Murray won't make the second week.

How do you manage to get out of your bed each day? lol

Quite frankly, I don't care since it is the red stuff yuk  but any game with Andy in is a bonus. Very Happy

hopefully Andy will make the correct decision  and if that means pulling out RG then so be it.  If Andy does participate then I'm sure he   will make the 2 week.  I bet he will make it to at least the Q finals.  I'm positive.  Andy made the semis of all four slams last year so why can't he do it this year.  I know results haven't been the best for Andy this clay season.  Our expectations have been high for him this clay season, since he did incredibly well last clay season.  but what can you do? **** happens in life. get over it. The clay season isn't loved  by many tennis fans...( except of course Rafa fans)  because its so predictable.  There's no competition .. no surprises.     If Andy can avoid the likes of Raonic and Berdych and get back to full fitness then we can believe!!  (like we always do)  Wink lolol

Andy has moved down the betting to 5th. Now at 18-1 behind Del Potro who is 16-1.

Theres a few very attractive looking bets in there;

Berdych at 28-1
Ferrer at 33-1

or how about  Raonic at 100-1  ?

I really don't understand why Delpo is rated so highly - apart from tournies where no-one else of any note has been playing he hasn't had great results.  He lost in 2 sets today to Simone Bolelli - the world number 111 - I can't see how that makes him a better bet than Andy for RG.

Just watched the Semi from last year on Eurosport and it's going to take a big effort from Murray to replicate the really good bits from that match this year because he has under performed big time so far in the clay court season.

Didn't realise that the exhibition match was in Nice - blooming long way to go for exhibition match.  Wonder if he will let the train take the strain?

  Andy's match today against Gulbis is in Paris, a club near the race course. They hold this exhibition match here every year and use the tennis balls they will be using in RG this year.

It's a good draw, could have been much more difficult. Hope Andy rolls in nice in the tournament in the firs two rounds and then fnds some forme, his recent was quite disturbing.

Definitely happy with that draw - if his back is ok, Andy could even make the semis as Ferrer often goes out early in the French Open. I think Tomic/Dolgopolov/Gasquet are all beatable over 5 sets.

Pleased he managed to avoid Berdych and Delpo.
