Well, that's a bit last minute - that's next week.

Typically I'm off the week after... between Rotterdam and Acapulco, so won't be able to see/cover either tournament. Frown

Translation:

Murray gets wildcard for ABN Amro tournament
Andy Murray is doing next week at the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam .
 
Photo : Reuters The Shot of director Richard Krajicek received the third wild card for the tournament .

Murray , last year, the strongest at Wimbledon , did it three times earlier in Ahoy . His best year was in 2009 , when he was defeated in the finals . Rafael Nadal

The participation of Murray is a huge windfall for Krajicek , who earlier this week received a notice of cancellation of Australian Open winner Stanislas Wawrinka .

" Last week I contacted Andy Murray and his management . Because he had no tournament in the schedule between the Australian Open and Acapulco and fit came from Australia , it seemed both of us a good idea if he came to Rotterdam ," said Krajicek .

" After consulting with his coach Ivan Lendl , he made ​​the decision . Course it is a wonderful addition to our already strong field . An opportunity. "

Also, defending champion Juan Martin Del Potro and Tomas Berdych are among the participants of the tournament that begins Monday . The Dutch Igor Sijsling and Thiemo de Bakker with a wildcard admitted to the master schedule .

Good news that we can follow Andy in another tournament. Bad news is that we have the usual anxious wait on which Andy turns up.  If he plays with authority he could go at least to the semis, perhaps to a win? Del Potro is recovering from his bad wrist so Berdych is the only big threat.  Do we know if the the event is covered on TV yet and when draw is made?

Surprising news but it's probably a good idea for Andy to play some more matches ahead of the US hardcourt season - especially as he has 1,000 points to defend in Miami. The tournament has a great field so it should be a good test of Andy's form.

The draw's being made today (9pm local time so 8pm GMT). Sky are covering it from Thursday and it's on TennisTV from Monday.

 "His best year was in 2009 , when he was defeated in the finals . Rafael Nadal"

Something was "lost in translation" here MadHatter.  Andy actually won in Rotterdam, 2009, beating Nadal 6-3, 4-6, 6-0.  

Have to say that I can't remember the circumstances of the third set bagel.  Andy must have played out of his skin or maybe Nadal wasn't at his best.

Best thing about this is, it's clear now he suffered no problems with his back during his DC clay exploits.

He seems to be chomping at the bit to play some tennis

I like.

Nadal played the entire set with an injury and could barely move, if I recall.

Nadal was injured in the 3rd, genuinely injured, but he played the final through to the end.
Looking forward to when these 2 play again as it will show just how far Andy has developed his aggressive game with Lendl.
Anyway what an unexpected pleasure...more Andy!
Sch-weet  yay
He's just going to get better and better now.
Glad he played the DC too.
And Indoors he's got a pretty good opportunity to win this title and gain some much needed extra points.

Yes I see the tennis comms have been tweeting similar thoughts.  His back must be feeling good if he's willing to add in the extra flight and sounds like he's really wanting to play matches again.
Doesn't it make a nice change to have an extra match rather than have matches snatched away like at the end of last season.
Go Andy go  yay

I think Andy realised he has to play more 500's to get points, since he played none last year, he had 4 zero pointers.
