Andy is now with Under Armour


Old news for most I'm sure but Andy confirmed last night he is switching clothing provider from Adidas to Under Armour for next season.

Couldn't help but giggle at Andy's quote there, either he read that off a sheet or he didn't say it at all!

I'm sure Andy won't miss some of those disgusting Adidas kits, especially from last season - first year in a while I haven't personally bought one!

Hopefully his position as the biggest tennis representative will lead to some personalized, decent kits. As you say, some of those Adidas ones were awful.

Not worth opening a new thread - but if anybody doesn't already know, Andy is kicking off his 2015 in the Abu Dhabi exho today - he is playing Feliciano Lopez who replaced Monfils. 1pm and I understand it will be on Eurosport for those who have it. I will have to search for a dodgy livestream.

Just to tie it into this thread - I believe he will be wearing some of his new kit, but possibly only the practice kit. They haven't really had much time to design the full range, I suppose.

I missed nearly all the match, but Andy just thrashed Nadal 6-2 6-0. What a pity it is just an exho and doesn't count! Ok, it was Rafa's first match for a while so he was probably rusty, but he usually comes back after lay-offs with all guns blazing.

Andy was aggressive like the old Andy he was all over Rafa Good start to the year

For all the talk of variety, I saw some classic backhand and forehand peppering that were reminiscent of 2013 under Lendl. Early days, and an exho, but still all rather positive.

So Andy gets a 2nd win over a Top 4 player in 2 days, as Novak withdraws with a high temperature. Seems like Nole got his withdrawal in 1st as apparently Andy was suffering from a sore shoulder yesterday.

Not a great outcome for the sponsors and the crowd.

Ah, hope that sore shoulder is nothing more than an early season irritation as he gets the body back into competitive action.

Not a good way to win, but if the shoulder is a problem not playing a no doubt long match against Djokovic could be a good thing.

It seems that a scan of the shoulder showed nought amiss.  It's just sore.  Perhaps just the stresses & strains of match play after his winter training block?  Hope so anyway.   Good job it's not the right shoulder... wink

From the Beeb site:

Andy Murray shrugged off his recent shoulder problem to lead Great Britain to a 2-1 win against holders France on the second day of the Hopman Cup in Perth.

Murray defeated Benoit Paire 6-2 7-5 at the Perth Arena, and teamed up with Heather Watson [pictured above] to beat Paire and Alize Cornet in the decisive mixed doubles tie.

"It's a bit sore, if it was my right shoulder it would probably be quite hard for me to play," Murray said. "I don't feel it on my ground strokes so much, I feel it when I'm serving. I had an ultrasound scan in Abu Dhabi and it was absolutely clear but it's still quite sore.

"Hopefully it will calm down. Maybe it's playing matches again after a little break, maybe I've just got it in the wrong position and tweaked something a little bit, but I should be fine."
