Murray to play in Aberdeen Cup « on: March 25, 2006, 06:55 PM »

The top class tennis event The Aberdeen Cup is set to return to Aberdeen this year and plans are already at an advanced stage for another spectacular competition in 2007.

The Lawn Tennis Association has approved the 2006 event and Andy Murray and Greg Rusedski have both agreed terms with the promoters to take part.

In 2005 the tournament attracted 11 hours of live coverage on Sky television, which included footage of the city, which was also shown on the US Tennis Channel, as part of the City Council sponsorship package.

Last year 81 journalists attended the event and it is anticipated that even more will attend this year if Andy Murray, as expected, continues his charge up the world rankings.

Yay the Aberdeen Cup!!

At the bottom of the article it says:

Quote
The council’s sponsorship contribution, it is proposed, should come from the City Growth Fund. Ticket sales will commence next month ensuring a sell-out.

Does this mean the Aberdeen Cup?  If so YAY I'm SO getting tickets for this after missing the Davis Cup.

Murray might not play in 2007 because I believe he will qualify for the Masters' Cup that year.

I'd love to be able to go to it this year! I'll be at Uni in London by then, but hopefully I'll be able to arrange something and travel up to Aberdeen for the weekend. Would def be worth the trip!

As an exhibition for the fans! Why not? If it gets people in Scotland interested in tennis, then it can;t be a bad thing.

Its a bit silly as England and Scotland are not tennis nations, where as GB is. I have no problem if they hold it between GB and Spain, but Scotland and Spain makes no logic.

Scotland and england are not tennis nations? i think you'll find, that both have tennis organistions set up individually themselves.....therefore, i think you'll find that yes in fact.....they are tennis nations. It makes sense, as a whole scottish team could lead to more scots becoming interested in the game. A GB team just means davis cup style things. Which isn't what they are after.

Scotland and England are perfectly seperable countries. And in several sports people represent that individual country. Why not in tennis? Just because it says "GBR" after Andy Murrays name, doesn't make him unable to represent scotland! I mean what about scottish unis team, scottish junior sides etc etc. And the same for england, and wales for that matter. Your talking rubbish again arka.

...no he is talking logically! There is no reason why Scotland can't compete as a separate nation.... it would be great fun for Scotland, and brilliant for tennis in Scotland.

Give me an argument matey. Not just telling me i'm talkilng illogically....

You obviously don't realise how tennis is run and the LTA's inititive of "grass roots tennis". That means starting from scratch. Like we have said before the seperation of the home nations allows more minor players to come through and represent there respective countires against and alongside higher calibre players. Also, seeing an independant nation allows members of that nation to be inspired to participate in sport, and while not become world class stars, gets modern "fat" britain off it;s arse and into gear a little. Now if Scotland playing spain inspires just one more scottish kid off their bum and onto the tennis court I'm all for it. Andy murray started at the bottom, so must the stars of the future. There could be some 36 yo office worker who's never played tennis, but if he had taken it up at 8 he would be No. 1 in the world by now! You just can't tell. So that's what it's all about. Inspiring people.

Winning isn't everything, and these matches are merely an "exhibition" hence for fun and show and to attract crowds and viewers etc.
