Andy beat Granollers then went out to Gulbis last year, see playing activity, 2013 at http://www.atpworldtour.com/Tennis/Players/Top-Players/Andy-Murray.aspx?

He also played doubles with Colin and reached the finals. He was asked about doubles this year

Q.  You talked about getting plenty of matches in before the US Open.  Last year you had a really good run here in the doubles.  Were you tempted to use that again to sort of build up your match sharpness or did it just not work logically?
ANDY MURRAY:  No, I wasn't originally going to have a bye in the tournament because I would have been‑‑ before Rafa pulled out, I was told I was going to be playing on Monday evening a little while ago.
So I planned all of my training and everything around playing my first match on Monday evening and, you know, arranged to come here on Thursday to get here a little bit earlier to get used to the conditions.
Yeah, I had been asked by a couple of the guys‑‑ Colin had asked me to play doubles, and I said to him, Sorry, but I'm not going to have a bye so I don't want to play.
Then, yeah, obviously I found out Wednesday afternoon/evening when Rafa pulled out, so I had thought about it, but not this year.

Oh dear.  That's a shame because I enjoyed watching Andy and Colin play last year.  Also it would have given Andy more match practice.

Just thought I would impart what I knew about these tournaments in the last 2 years.

No match thread up for Today? 

A very tight contest between Cilic and Federer going on just now. Cilic saves match point.

I'm just about to put one up since the person who usually does it hasn't.  Andy's match timed for 6pm BST. 

Interesting - I watched the first set of that.

Now into the tie break.  Cilic saved another couple of match points at 4-5 down.

Cilic takes the tie break 7-3.

thanks for that information lashurst - good so Andy has already picked up points. 
Oh well I can watch Honourable Woman now.   And I seem to remember a MW member has QF tickets for end of a N American holiday so they'll be pleased they know they're seeing Andy.  I wonder how Linda has got on. Perhaps she's stalking Andy on the practice courts as I write  Whistle
Ruthie what do you think of Honorrable women, I've enjoyed it , although Nessa is starting to get on my nerves!!

deb I've enjoyed it too and once they'd done the flashback episodes more or less had a grasp of what was going on though you have to keep your wits about you.  I didn't like the start of yesterday's episode though.  I'm away for a couple of weeks now so hope I can remember all the ins and outs when I pick the threads up again on my return!

He could certainly have done with more match practise. Sorely lacks that.
