No byes then - not sure how long it takes from Bangkok to Tokyo?  This could be quite a testing 500, which all being well, should make good training for the masters.  But as Aileen said on another thread just hope Andy doesn't tire himself out rushing from one to the other especially with the dubs.

Baghdatis has to travel from Kuala Lumpur - they might both be a bit tired in the first round.

Baggy just lost to Tipsy in KL. Shame about that, as
 I like ol'Marcos.
I dont fancy his chances against Andy either.

Quote from the website ATP:

Long-Awaited Return - Andy Murray returns to Tokyo for the first time since falling in the second round (l. to Novak) on his 2006 debut. The Scot is bidding for his second title on Asian soil after winning 2010 Shanghai.

Rafa is defending his title, so he will mean business! Who knows how he'll deal with this mentally.  Shrug
Hope he exhibits better selfcontrol this time.  He plays much better that way.

I like Marcos too but when he's playing Andy I'm afraid that goes out of the window.  So good luck to Andy.

Approx 5 and a half hours.

Also a reminder, since this is where we get into the complications of time-zone hopping, that whereas Bangkok was 6 hours ahead of us, Tokyo is 8, then Shanghai is 7!

I wasn't happy about Andy playing the doubles here to begin with and I'm even less happy now that he doesn't have the benefit of a bye because he will almost certainly play his singles match on Tuesday and, assuming he reaches the final, we're talking about 5 singles matches in addition to the doubles.  Also the opposition here is stronger than it was in Bangkok, which in turn could mean longer and tougher matches.  He's looking very fit but I'd prefer that was able to conserve some more energy before embarking on the defence of his title in Shanghai.  However, that's his choice, so good luck Andy (and Jamie too)! cmon yeah

I'm not going to predict a possible winner, but I did notice two words in that article when referring to Andy - "brain cramps".  Hopefully we won't see too many of these mental lapses, so Andy please keep saying to yourself - FOCUS!!
