L128: (7) Andy Murray WR 8 v Andrey Golubev (KAZ) WR 55 (CH 33 in 2010)

H2H 1-0 - Andy thrashed Golubev 1&1 in the St Petersburg Final in 2008 (or 2-0 if you include a 2 & 2 win at the Hopman Cup in 2010)

His full 'route' (highest seeds in each section only):

R1: Golubev
R2: Matosevic/Brown
R3: (28) Kohlschreiber
R4: (12) Gasquet
QF: (3) Wawrinka
SF: (1) Nadal
FI: (2) Djokovic

Madeline's post above gives full details of his quarter.

As draws go, I've seen worse.

Is Gasquet fit?

Chance to take Stan's place at WR 3 if Andy wins through that quarter. OK, and then wins the tournament !

But it's in his hands :)

Not that I'd be putting bets on Stan reaching the QF anyway...

Not a bad draw at all, I think. Good chance for some points, and if he can play close to how he did against Nadal then he could go deep.

I hate to be picky about the title of this thread, but don't they play on clay in Roland Garros ?

Don't think so. Touch and go. He's had three infiltrations over the last couple of weeks and says he's just so tired of being in constant pain. And miserable about it.

Warmed up at sort of 50% yesterday but hasn't served a ball for weeks.

That's a very good draw. Avoided pretty much all the dark horses and clay specialists, probably the best R4 draw, probably the best QF draw, and Nadal in the semis is irrelevant anyway (given the alternative is Djokovic it hardly makes much difference).

By the sounds of it Gasquet and Wawrinka would do well to get that far anyway. Golubev-Matosevic-Istomin-Verdasco-Fognini would be my bet, although who knows which Fognini will turn up in Paris. That section, and in-fact this entire quarter really is quite open what with the top players lack of consistency or confidence on this surface.

 Note to self: never start a new thread in a hurry. I did know it was clay, honest guv.
