Murray back in action at Memphis

Quote

ANDY Murray has had little time to savour his first ATP title. Just three days after defeating Lleyton Hewitt to win the SAP Open in San Jose, the 18-year-old Scot is back on court today.

I think Andy could have drawn a much tougher opponent than he did. This match shouldn't be too much of a problem for him.

Playing his first match as a top-50 player, Murray takes on Germany's Rainer Schuettler in the Regions Morgan Keegan Championship in Memphis.

Murray has yet to come across Schuettler on the ATP tour. The 29-year-old was ranked as high as fifth two years ago, but is now 98th in the world and was knocked out in the opening round in San Jose last week.

Murray's victory there came even though his coach, Mark Petchey, spent the week at home in England with his family. The pair kept in regular contact, however, as Murray beat world No 3 Andy Roddick in the semi-final and Hewitt in the final.

I spoke to Mark before each match, and he said I had a very good chance of beating my opponent each time. He told me to go in thinking I could do it - because if you don't think that you don't have much of a chance.

I did see that Dazza, I'm really surprised James Blake is out in the first round again, and Roddick definitely isn't on form, hope Andys not still up in the clouds somewhere and plays a solid match.
