There will definately be live commentary for all Andy's matches in Memphis.

I wonder why he's not in the doubles ?

No doubles...no surprise....I think they will pick and choose their doubles events. Possibly at the Pacific Life Open...could be Andys last outing before the Davis Cup ?

He probably feels after doing so well in San Jose he has a good chance to go far here aswell and that playing singles and doubles to a late stage took alot out of him in San Jose.


I really hope they put Andy on on Sunday or it could be an early defeat here as he will just be too jaded after playing 3 tough matches in 3 days and then needing to fly to Memphis and play the day after playing Hewitt. Playing Hewitt in the fianl will also take alot out of him emoticannly aswell being a final espically if he wins but the confidence he will get from it will be immense.

on Murray v Schuettler, Andy must be massive favourite for that match provided that he's not too exhausted from this week's exploits. Schuettler's ranked 95 in the world - a far cry from his best of 5 in the entry system and no 2 in the race system.

Rainer's having a miserable time at the moment, he's been given a good kicking by Vliegen twice this year - 6-2, 6-3 in Chennai and also 6-1, 6-3 in San Jose this week.
He lost in rd1 of Zagreb 7-6, 6-3 to Karlovic and also in rd1 of the Aussie Open - in 3 sets to compatriot Lars Burgsmuller. The nadir was when he lost in rd1 of the Heibronn Challenger in 3 sets to Simon Greul.

Schuettler is a tough competitor - extremely mentally strong, he's renowned for the fitness training he puts in and so his speed and stamina can rival any player in the world apart from maybe Nadal. These qualities led to him taking advantage of a weakened draw to reach the 2003 Aussie Open final.

He's got great passing shots but hasn't got the weight of shot to trouble Murray too much from the baseline and his serve should be no problem for a returner of Andy's quality. Schuettler's playing very erratically at the moment.

I'll predict Andy in straights something like 6-3, 6-2

My brother's in Memphis. Maybe Andy will play doubles in Las Vegas if James Auckland is going for qualies there ? Novak Djokovic will be in Indian Wells for that Masters Series event so a chance to resume their promising partnership from the Aussie Open for at least two events [with Miami following].

I wonder whether Andy will play doubles in the clay events. I'd think he'd be better not to as matches will be more physically demanding on the clay and playing two matches in one day will take an awful lot out of him.

It's indoor, so I doubt it.

Andy is scheduled to tomorrow so he could potentially be playing 5 games in 5 days. It gives him a good break though after the high of winning in san Jose and flying to Memphis and getting settled there.

Murray and Petchey will be reacquainted this morning. “I spoke to him last night and he was a bit worried I was going to sack him and hire my girlfriend,” Murray said of his flame, Kimberly Sears, the daughter of Nigel Sears, the respected British coach, who watched his entire week’s play.

“I’ve been working on my composure and not showing too much emotion against these guys, who give you so little,” he said. “They make so few errors. There wasn’t any pressure for me to win. For that reason, I didn’t get too angry or emotional and it helped me. I know that I’ve got a good chance of winning against some of those guys now, but Memphis is going to be difficult. I’ll only have one day of practice on those courts. I’m just going to take things one match at a time. This might get me to the top 50 (he is at No 47), but there are still 46 guys out there who are better.”

After the tournament in Memphis, he will travel to Las Vegas for the Tennis Channel Open, the first time the tour has stopped at that unique metropolis. “You’re going to have a gamble, right?” he was asked by an American writer. Murray replied: “No, you can’t unless you’re 21, which is a bit of a shame because that’s the thing I was most looking forward to going there for. I’m not a gambler, but it would have been nice to have a go.”

And whatever colour he had chosen, most people would have placed a few dollars upon. He has that kind of charm.
