Andy Murray will return to action at the Internazionali BNL d'Italia Masters 1000 event in Rome next week.

Murray has only won two matches in seven attempts at this tournament and made the third round last year, before being thrashed by David Ferrer.

A kinder draw this year raises the prospect of a better showing, but expectations are not high given the Scots atrocious recent form.

R1 : Bye
R2 : Malisse/GGL
R3 : Troicki/Davydenko/Dolgopolov/Starace
QF : Roddick/Melzer/Simon
SF : Djokovic/Soderling

No reason to expect anything other than an early loss.

Even though Belluci is in the semis and is currently handling Djokovic, who is something like 30-0 for the season?

I think Andy played very well against Belucci, he hadn't been able to practice a lot because of his elbow injury, and he was playing against a clay specialist on fire. Belucci then beat Berdych, a match fit player #7 and now it looks as if he is putting Nole to the sword. So give Andy a break, he will show you doubters in the end.It is good to read the above posts that don't agree with a certain gentleman, who always tends to be rather negative. Needs to get a little more sun, and take some pink pills for positivity. Whistle

People just seem to be harsh on Murray when theres no need. He deserved after the AO of course, but lets take a look over the last month. He got all the way to the semi-final and took a set off on Nadal, on CLAY, and I'm convinced he would have won if it wasn't for the elbow injury. He then had to take time out because of the injury and he's still recovering. He lost agasint a worthy opponent because that same person is now a set up on the Djoker in the semi-final. So someone tell me why Murray is so **** and past his prime??? There's not always reasons for poor performances, but I think you should be giving him a break right about now.

Happily for Djokovic fans, he's got more form and self belief than Murray (or Berdych)

I see no reason to be expectant of a good performance in Rome. Murrays historical performance there is absolutely terrible, irregardless of his current form.

He played poorly against and in form player. I'm generally a pessimist, but that loss didn't bother me even before Belucci backed up that win.

I agree I watched Bellucci play Nole.  He was great for a set and a half. Nole then uped his game and won the last set 6-1.  Andy was not so bad after all Bellucci also beat Berdych so all you people who are always
putting Andy down take note. I do not know if Bellucci is good on other surfaces or just good on clay.
In the end he was well beaten by Nole. Can't wait for the final tomorrow should be a great game.

Consistency for Andy on clay may never come, but he is capable, very capable indeed as he showed against Nadal.  This looks like a good draw, but how he will do, who knows really!  On any other surface he could get the cigars out until the SF (although Davy has always been an awkward player for him).

Bellucci played well and is a good clay court player.  Andy also did not seem to be striking the ball well, which may have been down to his elbow, or may not.  His movement was good.  Let's hope for better this week.
