..........  but the points would certainly help and so would the momentum of two wins in two weeks!

Think it is safe to say the boys should win dubs tomorrow.  Poor Milos is playing twice same day.  I am torn in my support on this one (see my username!)

A doubles match or two won't hurt. I'd rather he win Shanghai, of course, but there really shouldn't be that much problem playing three consecutive weeks. Now, all the travel is another matter. But 14 matches in 3 weeks, after a couple weeks off, and not playing THAT much this year? It really isn't as bad as it seems. He couldn't have asked for an easier run last week, this week shouldn't be too hard before the semis, and guys are dropping from Shanghai every minute. Nadal/Djokovic have done three consecutive weeks in the past. Andy's done pretty similar runs, too, particularly late 08 which was after an even tougher summer than this one, not to mention how much fitter Andy is now. He'll be ok, if he really wants this, and I think he does. And he absolutely won't want to lose to Baghdatis again.

Plus he'll have three weeks off after this run, which will be the first time he's had that much time off pre-Paris. I think he knows what he's in for, and I think he's going for all three titles, which, I believe, would be the first time he's ever done that.

I hope Andy improves his second serve; an Achilles heel this year.   He looks in a good place at the moment; not too cocky and he enjoys having Jamie around.  Looking good for thos points to pass Fed.  Is there any UK coverage?

I think playing dubs tuesday might help as it will help him get accustomed to the courts and he doesn't play singles until wednesday - good scheduling on part of the organisers.   Re his second serve marg: actually I think it's better than it used to be. But it can still go awol at times as can his first serve unfortunately.  And yet when he's serving well, it's very very well.

Andy and Jamie 3rd on Court 1 vs  Pablo ANDUJAR (ESP) & Milos RAONIC (CAN).

Nalbandian, Ferrer and Nadal all have singles today.

Japan is 4 hours behind me with play due to start at 12 noon local time, so 4 pm NZ and 4 am UK (BST). Very Happy

Thanks.  Even here he doesn't look too pleased with himself when he fluffs a kick!

Plus he'll have three weeks off after this run, which will be the first time he's had that much time off pre-Paris. I think he knows what he's in for, and I think he's going for all three titles, which, I believe, would be the first time he's ever done that.
He'll only have two weeks off if he plays in Valencia as scheduled.  Won the title in 2009 and went out in his first match against Monaco last year - but the tournament came right on top of all the running around he'd had to do for Jamie's wedding.
