Andy's newest blog:


So last week turned out pretty well! It was great to be able to win at the Sony Open. The final itself was one of the toughest matches I’ve played for a while. David is a formidable opponent at the best of times and he really brought everything to that court on Sunday. He is a good friend of mine, and a great guy and always works for every point. It’s tough playing in that heat and humidity, part of the reason there were so many breaks of serve, and we were both struggling towards the end. I was just pleased that I could close the match out and gain my 26th career title.

I’ve spent the last few days having some time out to relax after a pretty intense couple of weeks of tennis, it’s good to rest and recharge ahead of the clay season. It will come as no surprise to most of you that I’ve managed to fit in a few Miami Heat games, The Heat have been on fire this season, so its always great to go and watch them. I think they have only lost 2 games in their last 30 matches, which is just incredible. The end of the Premier League season is on the way and after a very busy few weeks it’s safe to say my my fantasy football team needs some attention, I’m confident though I can make the necessary changes to gain those all important points in the closing weeks.

I’ve also spent a lot of time with my dogs the last few days, they came out to Miami with me for the first time this year, and it has been great having them here and coming home to them everyday, and as I’m sure you can tell from my Facebook, I think they have had a decent time, at least they’ve avoided the snow back home!

After winning in Miami I moved up to number two in the world rankings. Its great to be back in the top two after almost three years. My hard work over the last twelve months has really paid off, which is motivating me to push even harder this year. For now I’m staying totally focused on putting in a solid performance on the clay, taking it one tournament at a time.

The clay’s not always been my favorite surface, the ball tends to bounce higher and travels much slower than some of the other surfaces on the tour. However this year, I intend to prepare myself so that I’m in the best possible shape at the French Open. My first clay tournament of the season will be in Monte Carlo, so after a few more days out here in Miami doing some lighter training on the clay courts, I’ll head over to Europe to get started on my clay court preparation.

Monte Carlo is one of my favourite tournaments, it’s set in one of the best locations in the world, with some spectacular views across the bay, and some equally amazing boats and cars. The weather is always nice which is a bonus and it’s a very well run tournament, so I’m really looking forward to it. Thanks as always for your support and see you in a few weeks.

Thanks dani and nice to see him paying tribute to Ferrer.  Actually when he was younger he used to say clay was his favourite surface and for a long time that was what appeared on atp website etc.

Update on Andy's management situation Smile

Simon Fuller's XIX Entertainment and Mahesh Bhupathi's Globosport have announced a new venture named XIX Globosport to capitalize on the two partners strengths in media, entertainment and tennis.
 
The new partnership has been created to extend relationships and create dynamic new opportunities in developing markets around the world, with the burgeoning sports and entertainment opportunities in India and the Middle East in particular providing an exciting backdrop to the enterprise.
 
The venture's first client will be Andy Murray, world No.2 ranked player and the venture is expected to contract with the respected tennis agent and former ATP professional Ugo Colombini to provide on the ground tennis support and specialist resourcing for the player as he challenges for major honours during the 2013 ATP Calendar.
 
XIX Entertainment has managed Andy Murray since 2007 during which time he has become a national hero and a global sports star, enjoying breakthrough moments including winning Olympic Gold at London 2012 and a historic first ATP Grand Slam in New York in 2012.
 
Andy Murray said: "I believe a mix of Simon's experience and Mahesh's understanding of the sport will create the perfect team for my off court interests and will allow me to continue to dedicate myself and focus on my goals on the court".
 
Simon Fuller comments: "Our business is built on strategic partnerships with key individuals in different parts of the world and I'm delighted to be working with Mahesh as we look to expand into the Indian sub continent and other developing markets".
 
Mahesh Bhupathi added: "The opportunities for us in these markets are now second to none, and being in partnership with a successful and pioneering individual like Simon is very exciting. He has a vision for this part of the world and we are excited that he has chosen to partner us".
 
The new partnership will provide Andy Murray with the global resource, media expertise and strategic skills of Fuller's XIX Entertainment, and the credibility, drive and specialist tennis skills of Globosport.
 
Their founder Mahesh Bhupathi, is widely regarded as one of the best doubles players in the world with 12 Grand Slam titles to his credit and his business enjoys an enviable reputation in sports management, TV and film production as well as having a wealth of experience in the Indian subcontinent.
 
The new partnership will start with immediate effect.

Interesting. Good for Andy to have tennis input into his financial dealings from a former player. not sure the ITF will be too keen to hear the US Open described as the ATP US Open though - hope the management team will be more careful in referencing things when trying to close out deals for Andy - and any one else on their books.
