Andy Murray Latest and General Tennis Chat


Bryan

Recommended Posts

Only caught the 1st and 5th sets due to the football but the Murrays looked very decent. Any worry that sandy could be a bit drained today tho?

Emotionally more than physically. Doubles isn't that tiring physically.

I think he might start a bit sluggishly today .. Maybe go a break down before he gets back into it..

Mayer has an 8 match winning run in Davis Cup apparently.. Quite surprising. Its a pretty exciting Sunday in that match. Belgium could easily win both ties.

I'd play Hewitt as well. Tomic looked done after beating Evans and he's weak. Hewitt will love the crowd.. Playing his last ever Davis Cup match... Make Murray run a lot.. Worst case scenario for the Brits.

Can't wait to get there... Going to be immense.

I think Tomic has a better chance than Hewitt (although I don't think either have much of a chance). No doubt that Hewitt would deal well with the crowd, I just don't think he'd do well after a 4 hour match yesterday and against a much better player. When was the last time he beat a player in the top 10 out of interest?

Strange how Andy is on first as the second game will more than likely be for nothing ?!

Andy Always plays first on the Sunday as he wants the ranking points. For winning the Davis Cup playing and winning all singles rubbers nets you 625 points. Only a Masters win or Grand Slam semi final gets you more points. If Andy went second he might not get the opportunity to win the second match.

Hewitt last beat a top tenner last year when he beat Federer. Very surprised they never played Hewitt. I can't see Tomic doing much against Andy. If he starts slowly Tomic could capitalise, but he doesn't have the fight or consistency to finish him off. I would have elected for Hewitt everytime.

And what's your point? Kokkanakis and Tomic are both out on the tour. Hewitt has only been accepting wild cards for around a year now (including wild cards into all Slams). Del Potro doesn't even have a world ranking, but if he was fit they (Argentina) would have him play as well.
