But as of the papers today, probably getting their information from Andy or Mark, the schedule is:

Davis Cup

Bangkok (wildcard)
Tokyo qualifying/wildcard?
Madrid Masters qualifying
Paris Masters qualifying

(Alix Ramsey mentioned the last 2. The others come from Observer and Sunday Times)
OK so forget most of that.

The hat mentioned above must have dropped. Still awaiting the final wildcard from Bangkok but I imagine that will go to Udomchoke. Even the Masters qualifying look unlikely with Andy's ranking at 111.

According to the Murray website at freewebs.com/andrewmurray/latestnews he has been given a wildcard for Bangkok

Re: Andy's Autumn schedule

According to Judy Murray, Andy's schedule for the autumn is 5 Challengers - Belgium, South Korea, and 3 in the States.

From the look of the calendar these might be:

Mons 125 + H
Seoul 100 + H
Boston 75 + H
Nashville 75
Champaign 50 + H

So Andy will be playing deep in November if this schedule proves to be accurate.

Equally, there are a couple of earlier US Challengers - Sacramento and Calabasas that may form part of the schedule.

(the entry lists for 10th Oct will be out next week and should give some clues)

Re: Andy's Autumn schedule

I think this is a fairly sensible schedule in the circumstances. Given the lack of wildcards, Andy's options were:

a) to play qualifying for ATP tour events like Basel or Stockholm etc and risk a nightmare opening round draw even if he managed to qualify. To hope that he would just make it into the qualifying draw for the Masters events in Madrid and Paris(unlikely given ranking of 111) and then win a round of two. (High Risk option)

b) to enter european challengers with difficult fields and hope to do well against the odd top 100 player that tends to feature in these tournaments. (Medium Risk)

c) to opt for challengers with easier fields in the hope that he can reach 70 - 85 in the rankings for the start of next year. (Low Risk)

Chosing option c) means Andy has a great chance to get 100+ points thus gaining him direct entry into Adelaide or Sydney prior to the Australian Open, similarly direct into Masters tournaments in Indian Wells and Miami.

And a decent chance of making the main draw of Monte Carlo, Rome and Hamburg provided he gets some results in the early part of 2006.

The way the system works - direct entry is based on rankings 6 weeks prior to the event - means that Andy's schedule for the early part of 2006 is very much dependent upon his results this autumn.

Andy is on the entry list for Sacramento 50k. (starting 10th Oct)

The field for this event is very similar to the fields for his previous Challengers in North America. Andy is the no 2 ranked player at this stage.

It now seems highly likely that Calabasas will also feature in Andy's schedule, and unlikely that he will play Nashville or Champaign. Again we will have to wait for the entry lists to see.

It is possible that he may play Busan rather than Seoul.

Andy is intending to spend much of Nov/Dec working on his fitness prior to the Australian Open in January.

Re: Andy's Autumn schedule

Hey Murray fans,

Andy is definitely coming to the Sacramento Challenger (I'll be helping out there, all day, everyday, since its near my home). The word is that he will then go to Calabasas afterwards, and probably Carson and Boston after that (more points and money at that Challenger). That's four solid weeks of tennis to end the season. Carson and Calabasas are actually pretty close to each other, on either side of Los Angeles, Sacramento is about 400 miles north. Nice little California vacation he's got going there...

Aus Open entries will be based on the rankings for Monday, December 5th of this year.

Best twitter posts of the epic match:

@dougrobson - Whoever is supplying Mahut with hair gel needs to ink a sponsorship deal now.

@Wimbledon - FYI, with @Wimbledon live scoring devices, please add 50 to the games in the fifth set of the Isner v Mahut match.

@HolterMedia - Nice to see that a three-day test has come to tennis here @wimbledon.
