Re: Andy going for the 2008 Masters Cup, Shanghai

Rafa's defection will mean Andy is promoted to seed#3. I don't know if that will make any difference or not - other than that he doesn't get a chance to play Nadal of course. I can't make up my mind which group I want him in - Djoker's, I think.

Murray to face Federer at Masters

MASTERS CUP, Shanghai:
Dates: 9-16 November Starts: 0600 GMT daily Coverage: Live on Sky Sports; live text commentaries on BBC Sport website; coverage on Radio 5 Live


World number four Andy Murray has been drawn with Roger Federer, Andy Roddick and Gilles Simon in his maiden appearance at the Masters Cup.

The Scot has been drawn in the red group for the season-ending event in Shanghai and will come up against the world number two in Federer.

"To be among the top eight players in the world is a great feeling," he said.

Novak Djokovic, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Juan Martin Del Potro and Nikolay Davydenko make up the gold group.

In the absence of world number one Rafael Nadal, Federer is the highest ranked player competing in Shanghai.

Murray lost to Federer in the final of the US Open but recently beat him in the semi-finals of the Madrid Masters.

The 21-year-old also beat Frenchman Simon in the final of the Madrid tournament.

"It's my first time in Shanghai, but I have heard from all the other players that it is a fantastic tournament," said the British number one.

The top two from each group go through to a semi-final, with the winner of red playing the runner-up of gold and visa-versa, in the last four.

Murray takes his place in Shanghai after his most successful year on the ATP tour, with his appearance in the US Open final joining Masters titles in Madrid and Cincinnati on an increasingly impressive CV.

His entertaining and aggressive style has earned him a growing list of admirers with tennis legend Bjorn Borg the latest to offer words of praise.

"I said last year he is going to be a top player," Bjorg told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"Everybody was a little sceptical when I said that. But look what Andy has been producing this year. He has improved his physical condition, his mental aspect."

"He is one of the top players and has been winning Masters series. He knows he can beat every single player in the world and he is just improving more and more."

Bjorg also tipped Murray to win a Grand Slam title next year, something that has not been done by a male British tennis player since Fred Perry in 1936.

"It's going to be a very interesting year for Andy and, in general, for British tennis," said Bjorg.

"I pick Federer, Nadal and Murray to win Grand Slam tournaments next year."

Re: Andy going for the 2008 Masters Cup, Shanghai

He will probably play Fed as 2nd match since the winners on Monday will play each other on Wednesday.

Re: Andy going for the 2008 Masters Cup, Shanghai

It doesn't fit Madeline's personality to "celebrate" her birthday.
I can figure out such people's patterns, as I hated to "celebrate" my birthday since I was a little girl.

Madeline, regardless of the day.

Good luck to Andy in Shanghai.

Re: Andy going for the 2008 Masters Cup, Shanghai

It must be a Muzzatard thing then because I don't like it either. Still: bon anniversaire, Madeleine!

I'm wondering about the motivation of the other Andy for that event, he arrived only late yesterday - and since the guys have tons of media stuff to do on Saturday, he will hardly have time to practice at the tournament venue.
