Re: Andy Murray to play Brisbane International 2012?

If we take a look at history it would seem Murray is headed to Brisbane for the following reasons:

1. Murray has begun the last two years in Australia and it has resulted in Australian Open finals so you would think he would stick with the theme of starting the year in Australia.

2. Brisbane International has been able to attract at least one top 8 player each year since its' inception by paying big appearance fees to at least one player. (2009 - Djokovic(3), 2010 - Roddick(7), 2011 - Soderling (5).)

3. Brisbane International has recently upgraded to a bigger event on the womens tour and would be keen to attract a big male player to accompany the likes of Serena and Sharapova.

It is definitely looking like Murray will head to Brisbane and I am not just saying that because I am Australian and I want him to play Brisbane. I genuinely think he will come after the little bit of study I have done into the situation.
Haha, what a call.

It seemed to make total sense to me? Maybe it was just more so wishful thinking on my behalf . If you want another Brisbane related prediction I think eventually Brisbane will become an ATP500 event. I know that is a big call but there are several factors as to why it may become a 500 event in the future. Anyway for now I am happy with Murray.
