Murray beaten by on-song Robredo « on: March 01, 2006, 03:26 AM »

New British number one Andy Murray was soundly beaten in the first round of the Las Vegas Championship, going down in straight sets to Tommy Robredo.

Murray was broken at the start of the first set and never recovered, losing 6-2 6-2 to the third seed in under an hour in blustery conditions.

The 18-year-old admitted the weather had played a part in his defeat.
Andy didn't seem to be able to cope with the wind as well as Robredo did and possibly the fact the match was rain delayed affected the result.

For the last couple of years I've not really played in anything as bad as what it was out there.

I could have played much better but I could have done with slightly calmer conditions after just coming from playing indoors for four weeks.

It was not really great for getting into a rhythm and getting used to playing outside again - I even almost missed a couple of serves.

But I also wasn't quite all there unfortunately.

Guardian - 'Death in Vegas'

Times - 'Early Exit for Murray

Telegraph - 'Petchy Tries to Strike Right Balance

Great article by Petch there....

"It's easy to say that Andy should shut it out, but it's impossible to do. You see stuff and you hear stuff. You've got people that phone you or text you and you hear stuff. If you go on to the internet you're instinctively drawn to stuff about you. He knows it's going to be a part of his life, so it's not a question of ignoring it, it's a question of dealing with it," Petchey said.

"The media attention has been a real change in Andy's life. It's been such an incredible run on court, and all of a sudden he's gone from doing almost no media to being in demand the whole time. It's every week now and because of who he is and what he's done and where he comes from, there is always someone wanting something and that's difficult for an 18-year-old to have to deal with. I think he's done an incredible job of dealing with it to play the tennis that he has done."

Petch is so cool.  I read a small article in The Sun today about how Mark and Andy compete with each other, was good.

"Murray does not have a trophy cabinet at home any more, but perhaps he may have to reconsider soon. "I used to have all my trophies together at home," he said. "I had lots of trophies from my junior tennis. But I don't keep them any more - I have not won many in the last few years. I have won Challenger tournaments and Futures tournaments, but you don't always get a trophy - you just get a cheque. For San Jose I got what looks like a vase - maybe my mum can put some flowers in it."

Another quote from the Telegraph, only put it in for the last sentence.  roflmao  roflmao
