Andy Murray - Qatar ExxonMobil Open 2014

Quote

Disagree - it is still match practice with the doubles

I'm relieved he is playing - suggests that his back is OK, but he needs the match practice.

Peya & Soares (WR2) take the first set 7-6 in a close tie break

^ Agree. Andy needs match practise above all else at the mo. Johnny Mac used to plat dubs rather than practise too.
Having said that, they've just lost the first set Frown

Doubles is a completely different game though

I think, I hope, Andy playing doubles shows his back is OK.  He lost concentration half way through the second set in his singles - and I seem to remember him saying after beating Mayer, last time maybe, that you need 100% concentration because he is so unpredictable and plays like no other player.    Too much for him to-day.   He is mentally not there yet, but physically not far off.    Support you always Andy, win or lose - prefer wins mind you.

I'm glad he's playing dubs even if they lose and sounds like they're playing well against a top dubs pair regardless of the outcome.  One extra match isn't going to affect the time he has in Oz (if he still goes) and it's good net practice in particular.  Also he wouldn't want to let his partner down unless he was actually injured.

Andy has played nearly 3 and a half hours today - singles and doubles with a break in between - but probably good practice before possible 5 setters at a slam.

(as reported on 3 different threads!)

Looks like Andy Murray will ask for one match at Kooyong exo next week. Sydney very very unlikely.

In case anyone misses it on the other thread - Gasquet is OUT in Straight sets to Monfils - it's all happening in Doha
