Red face Murray & Rusedski announce clash

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tennis/4334898.stm

Andy Murray and Greg Rusedski will clash in a Scotland versus England challenge in Aberdeen in November.


The inaugural Aberdeen Cup will be played over 26-27 November and will take a Davis Cup-style format.

"To play for a Scotland team on my home turf against an England team containing the likes of Greg Rusedski is a great opportunity," said Murray.

Rusedski said: "There's always an extra edge when England face Scotland and I'm sure that this will be no exception."

Joining Murray in the Scotland line-up will be his older brother Jamie and current British number one Elena Baltacha, as well as a leading Scottish girl and boy from the Fred Perry Challenge. Invited to play alongside Rusedski for England are David Sherwood and British number three Katie O'Brien, as well as a leading English girl and boy.

Re: Murray & Rusedski announce clash

Are we sure that a girl with the name "Katie O'Brien" is actually English?

I think they threw in a ringer.

Re: Murray & Rusedski announce clash

Should be fab! There's nothing like English/Scots rivalry. It'll be great to see the new blood against one of the old guard too. Good idea to include the younger players.

I hope this is televised by the BBC - tennis needs all the coverage it can get to help inspire the next generation in the UK. This should be a great opportunity for that.

Re: Murray & Rusedski announce clash

Alan Mackin should be playing for Scotland.

I wonder if the Scottish fans will run on the court, take the net and rip up the court if they win.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
