Labour--Lib Dem- Green for me. Phew!  As others have said, pretty much what I would expect with possibly Green and Lib Dem changing places.
But did one purely on the Labour manifesto and came out as more a Blairite than a Corbynista.....oh the shame...Wink

Andy has spent the last three days training with British youngster Jay Clarke on the red clay at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton. According to his post-match press conference in Rome, Andy expects to be in Paris on Monday or Tuesday at the latest. Jay Clarke - who impressed Leon Smith at the Great Britian vs France Davis Cup quarterfinal in Rouen earlier this year, will travel to Paris with Andy and his team to continue training with him during the preparation week.

Despite huge improvements to Andy's clay game in 2015 and 2016, which resulted in three titles on the surface - including two Master's titles - and his first final at Roland Garros. This season has, however, seen his worst results on clay since 2008, which was the last year of his career that he failed to reach at least the quarterfinal stage of at least one of the three clay Master's tournaments, with third round exists in Monte Carlo and Madrid and a second round exit in Rome.

History was made in the 2016 final, and though he was bitterly disappointed he showed great class, climbing over the net to congratulate Novak Djokovic, not only on his first French Open title, not only on his career grand slam, but also in winning four slam titles in a row.

Based on his form so far this season, expectations from many for the world number one are rather low. Andy brissled at his press conference in Rome at the idea that he cannot do well in the French captial. Some believe that the 'reunion' with consultant coach Ivan Lendl - who apparently attends no more than six, or thereabouts, tournaments a year with Andy and weekly telephone discussions appear to be having little positive impact at present - offers some sort of instant cure for the poor state of Andy's game at present. If that is the case, the question should be asked why he did not come sooner?

The draw will be crucial to assit Andy's hope that he can play himself into the tournament and into form. Potential round of thirty-two opponents include Juan Martin Del Potro, Gilles Simon, David Ferrer, and Fabio Fognini.

Andy will have a fight on his hands if he's going to get back into match winning form, but he likes a fight.
