Andy Murray will open his 2006 campaign against a qualifier at the Adelaide International, with Lleyton Hewitt a possible quarter-final opponent.

The 18-year-old Scot is preparing to make his competive debut in Australia as he looks for a strong start to 2006.

Murray said:
I've been practising in South Africa where it was 25 degrees and now I've come here and yesterday was like the hottest day in ten years for me.

Murray will take on a qualifier in the first round, with Agustin Calleri or Tomas Berdych waiting in round two and potentially Hewitt in the last eight.

He said:
The qualifiers are supposedly the weakest in the draw but they've already got three matches under their belt and got used to the hot weather.

This is a very tough tournament and I'll have to win many matches before there is a chance of playing Hewitt.

Great article from the Telegraph... love the last bit!

Hewitt has been a Grand Slam champion, led his country to two Davis Cup victories and been world No 1 - ambitions which Murray has presumably pencilled in for 2007.

"Mark warned me it was going to be hot but he didn't tell me we'd have the hottest weather here for about 10 years," said Murray, will also play doubles this week in the hope of getting even more time on court.


Its back!

How bizarre. Rolling Eyes

Needs the magic tippex badly... and even if they don't take that bit out, they could at least do it properly and put a "who" in... "said Murray, will also play doubles". :P
