Thanks.

Richard was taking a trip on the boat today. Judy Murray posted a pic of him.

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

So! Here we are, Richard finished 2012 in the Top Ten and nobody talks about it in his own forum.

Many thanks to some here who managed to destroy this place with their continous pessimism and bashing of the player they were supposed to support. Well done.

As for myself, I will dedicate most of my time to rgnet. Having said that, many thanks to the few remaining posters, they will know who they are.

Yes, it is a shame to see this place so quiet after Richard gave us all such a great year. Though I can't cast the first stone, since I too have stopped coming here much, it does seem the old regulars have stopped coming here. I suppose we all became too busy but the quietness and lack of enthusiasm round here hasn't made me personally encouraged to return.

I hope in 2013 season we can try and return this forum to life, on my part I will try to make time to visit and post more often when I can. Just wanted to say that I'm sure all the regulars are still out there supporting him fervently and I hope your post could make some of them show up here again.

Anyway, congratulations Richard on a great 2012.

Q. You must have so many different emotions going through your head. Was it like a rollercoaster for you?
STANISLAS WAWRINKA: Yeah, yeah, it's quite crazy..I never expect to win a Grand Slam.
I never dream about that because for me, I was not good enough to beat those guy.

Maybe the sky will fall?

I just don't post much here any more glad Richard had a good year though. Would like him to be consistently top 10 next year.

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

This from Neil Harman on Twitter, re: Murray's withdrawal from Bangkok today -

Neil Harman ‏@NeilHarmanTimes 14m
Andy Murray will undergo minor surgery on his back next week. Been troubling him some time. London a doubt. Wants to be ready for 2014.

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

Bad news for Andy but a huge boost for Richard! I really hope he makes it to the finals, I booked my tickets months ago and have been keeping my fingers crossed to see him there.

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

Murray's Management company has said he will definitely miss Bangkok, Tokyo and Shanghai, but they aren't sure about WTF yet. I hope for his sake the surgery fixes the problem once and for all.

Web source: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/ten...ured-back.html

Without Murray playing Tokyo, 500 points could potentially be won by Tsonga or Raonic, putting them right back in the WTF race. (especially Jo.) Even if Murray does withdraw from WTF, I think this race is still going to be very, very tight. I really hope Richard can stay healthy and get to London as one of the top 8.

Allez!

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

Kei Nishikori is the defending champ and he usually plays well in Tokyo. We'll have to see how Jo's knees hold up. But you're right, I will still be very tight for Richard. I hope he is well rested and plays well.

So Del Potro signing up for Tokyo is good news.

Re: RACE TO LONDON: Autumn Indoor Season! [ALT For London]

Even with Murray potentially out, it is going to be close. Tsonga is just 220 points behind (160 if he loses in Final, 60 if he wins Metz).
