Monte Carlo 2012 Masters 14th-22nd April

Post by Jubbahey on Sun 8 Apr 2012 - 22:35

Next up is Monte Carlo, Andy's 1st clay date of the year and he did quite well last year, being beaten by Nadal, but in a 3 set semi final.

Without Nadal, (that's a possibility with his injury) he has a chance to get to the final, as Federer does not seem to be on the rosta.

Depending on how he plays, a final slot is certainly not out of the question but he'd need to beat Djokovic in the semis I would guess.

Doesn't appear to be anything on Fed's website as to why he isn't playing. His next match is down as Madrid in May. Maybe Andy will be drawn on Rafa's side of the draw, don't really think it matters as its on clay, Andy won't be favourite to beat Nole or Rafa if and when they meet.

Are you talking about the actaul draw list or schedule Dec, as they start the qualifications on sat, so that would make it a bit tight for players to arrange their match tactics etc. Or maybe thats how they've always done it, I dont know for sure.

P.S. Often the players know when they are playing before the draw is officially published - some such as Andy often put the info out on their Facebook page or Twitter, or journalists such as Neil Harmon of The Times tweet it. So I'm told by those who know about such things. . .

All the way to the final BOO, I have no doubts.

Our boy's gonna get stuck in, its big time for Murray now and he'll be making a move to be a major player in all the slam finals from now on.

All his hard work and determination is going to pay off this year, there are only so many times you can keep a good Scot down, before the Claymores come out and its beserker time.

Guess Ivan has got him to use his own Barber!

If anything it should help increase his court speed teehee

More sweat will drip onto his brow though, Q the towel more often.

Didn't Lendl himself have a skin head cut at some point ?

Maybe he'll get the same head gear that Ross Hutchins wears, can just see Andy setting the pace wearing that

He may go back to his baseball cap days.

But a new look sometimes gives a new feel and a new start, esp the 1st date on clay.

Back on topic Very Happy Troicki beat Lisnard today, so Andy's first opponent is Troicki. Andy leads the H2H 4-0.

anyone watching? all very good from Murray so far, toying with Troicki with some delightful touches, and the odd heavy shot thrown in. Troicki looks lost out there so far. 4-0

Nice bagel!

Now, Andy, no second-set lapses of concentration, please.

there were some fascinating graphics shown at the end of that set, comparing both players backhands:

Murray varied with slice, topspin, cross-court, down the line, dropshots.
Troicki hit all but three topspin cross-court.

difference in class.

well that was a very good start to the claycourt season for Andy. A bit more of a cruise control in that second set, but still showed some lovely touches. Troicki looked genuinely out of his depth there, and I don't think there are many players in the world who could do that.

Serving was excellent throughout, which is a big positive Cool
