Re: ~*The Australian Summer*~

I've heard Adelaide has shown a lot of interest in Andy too, and there's talk about him going there. So that's his first three tournaments sorted

Re: ~*The Australian Summer*~

Adelaide and Auckland is a good choice, Auckland he chose over Sydney, and Auckland's field is weaker so it's a better chance of winning a first title.

I am BUOH, warrior of heart and soul.

Re: ~*The Australian Summer*~

The journey from Adelaide to Auckland is also less tiring than Doha to Auckland... and yeah, Auckland doesn't pull as many 'stars' as Syndey

Re: ~*The Australian Summer*~

Murray to open against qualifier

Andy Murray will open his 2006 campaign against a qualifier at the Adelaide International, with Lleyton Hewitt a possible quarter-final opponent.
The 18-year-old Scot is preparing to make his competive debut in Australia as he looks for a strong start to 2006.

"My goal is to reach the top 20 by the end of the year so I'm hoping to do well early in the season and at the Masters tournaments," he said.

Murray finished last year as the world number 64 and British number three.

And on his first ever visit to Australia, he admits that the conditions will take some getting used to.

"I've been practising in South Africa where it was 25 degrees and now I've come here and yesterday was like the hottest day in ten years for me," he said.

Murray will take on a qualifier in the first round, with Agustin Calleri or Tomas Berdych waiting in round two and potentially Hewitt in the last eight.

"The qualifiers are supposedly the weakest in the draw but they've already got three matches under their belt and got used to the hot weather," he said.

"This is a very tough tournament and I'll have to win many matches before there is a chance of playing Hewitt."
