Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

Poor preparation though means he will probably be lucky to go far, QF maybe.
Good for the USO though that he is likely to be there.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

He won't reach the 2nd week. Murray is not Federer, he needs game rhytm badly.

Do you wonder what I've been doing the last 3 months?

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

It'll be good to have him back, regardless of the result he gets. As long as he's healthy, he can continue this year and try to qualify for the WTF.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

Andy playing is good for tennis. I just hope he's not pushing it. If he needs time, then he should take his time to properly recover.

This is a big concern of mine. Why rush coming back when he has had no lead up play to the U.S. Open? And undoubtedly won't be able to play all that well.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

I am hoping for the best for luckless Andy Murray,
And that he's not coming back in too much of a hurry.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

I don't get it. From what I read, his injury might be career ending. Isn't he making it worse by playing?

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

I can see the temptation to play with the shaky state of the tour.... really hope he isn't doing what he was at Wimbledon, clearly hampered but playing because it's a big tournament.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

Don't think he'll be a factor, but I prefer him participating for the seedings.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

So 5 points could potentially deny a Federer-Nadal USO Final....

Roger Federer

5 AO - 1 RG - 8 W - 5 USO

Without any game practice,it'll be tough for him.I had a hunch that he'll play given the depleted field

Like Nadal will even reach the final.

This life, which had been the tomb of his virtue and of his honour, is but a walking shadow; a poor player, that struts and frets his hour upon the stage, and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Re: Murray is likely to take part in the USO

I'd like to see Andy back but if he does go out early he may be another top player to pull the plug on the year. If we keep going like this we might a 4th round AO match between say, Fed-Novak/Murray-Rafa vice versa. Throw in Kei/Stan (has any other top player finished in the time of me writing this?) and there'll be some happy scalpers. Strange times indeed.
