Andy Murray Latest and General Tennis Chat

That’s now confirmed that Murray will play the Metz Open next week.  I suspect he will then travel to America and play a 250 event before Indian Wells.  Will need a wild card for Indian Wells.

Emma Radacanu wasn’t in the top 108 when the cut off for entry was needed.  If they give her a wild card she will be seeded

Murray got drop shorted to death in the first set 6-2 and has pulled it back 6-4.  Safiullin has now left court for a toilet break 😂

I have never seen this Russian play before I don’t think, but his drop shots are absolutely immense.  Not the spectacular Paire reverse bouncing ones, but well executed.  Good high quality match.

Anywhere we can watch this? 

It's on Prime Video if you've got it under Moselle Open and replay of yesterday should be available. 3rd singles match on today so should be on about 5/6pm.

The tweaks he has made to his serve have really helped him.  He will hit the serve before and after the ball has reached its peak in the toss.  The toss isn't as far forward either.  This dropped off at the tail end of the third set when he tired, but with more matches that will improve.

San Diego next, then Indian Wells and then back to the scene of his last singles win.

A days rest before the QF.  He will face the winner of Pouille Hurkacz.  Hurkacz is the number one seed.  When his first serve goes in, it’s almost unplayable.

Hurkacz won 6-2, 6-3. He will play Murray in the second match on court tomorrow.

After another match of not taking his chances, he moves to San Diego where he will face Kei Nishikori in the first round with a second round tie against Casper Ruud if he advances.

Kei Nishikori withdrew so he played a Lucky Loser (Denis Kudla) and won it two easy sets. He now faces number two seed (Casper Ruud more a clay specialist) in the next round.

In the most unexpected Wild Card news Emma Raducanu gets a wild card for Indian Wells.  She would have needed to go through qualifying, as she was out with the ranking required for main draw when the cut off for entry was made.

Andy Murray’s wild card confirmed for Indian Wells.  Even more exciting is the wild card for Kim Clijsters.  Should be a fun tournament.

Novak has pulled out, and potentially might not play the rest of the season but he’s expected to return for Paris and the Turin Finals.  Looking to clinch a record 7th year end number one.  Although Medvedev could thwart him if he goes on a Murray 2016 run.

Murray has been drawn to face Mannarino in the First Round and meets Carlos Alcarez in the second if he gets through that. Likely to face Zverev in third round.

Will be interesting to see how he does. He’s been working on his forehand, which should give him more first serve points.  It looks like he will be gradually changing his game to finish more points at the net. First serve, forehand, volley, point won.

His wedding ring has been stolen. He had his trainers out on his balcony to air and they’ve been nicked. He always ties his wedding ring to his laces when he’s training and playing.
