Well there will most certainly be a live stream and it lets people know so they won't make plans that day and can support our Andy Wink

I wonder why Andy doesn't get a BYE. Novak and him will be the top seeds after all.

Do any of them get a bye in an exhibition event?

The top 2 seeds do. Last year however, Rafa and Roger got BYEs into the semis, despite Novak being the first seed, so...

I see that it's Novak and Rafa that have the byes.  Rafa plays the winner of Andy v Tipsy and Nole plays the winner of Berdych v Ferrer.   I would think that Andy will probably be quite pleased to have a warm up match before playing Rafa.

So Murray could be play Nadal in a month and a bit time? Well I guess I'll note that in my diary because the two haven't met for ages and it will be good to see!

IF Rafa is fit.. there's still doubts over if he will make the Australian Open. If he is though, it will be his first match in about six months and will be nowhere near his best.

Valid point but it will still be nice to see them play and the perfect welcome back to the game for Nadal.

True. I doubt Andy will take it particularly seriously anyway.

I've just been onto the official web site.  There's no mention of prize money, but I guess Andy and co. must be on major Wonga to play in the tournament? 

It must be one of the factors, along with getting some pre-season training.  Being an invitation tournament, there isn't any ranking points on offer, is there?
