Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Los Angeles ###

I don't think he will be playing this week, which will be a shame! Still he has enough tournies before the US open to make a seeding!!!

His neck injury was a bit unlucky, but he was diving around a fair bit! I have done the very same myself once when i twisted my neck whilst lifting something and it isn't nice, but it is one of these things that take a few days and it gradually goes away.

He had a nice draw in LA too!

Plenty to look forward to though!

Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Los Angeles ###

Murray's fitness hurry
Eleanor Preston
Monday July 24, 2006
The Guardian


Andy Murray will undergo a scan today on his injured neck to decide when he will be fit to return.

He withdrew from the ATP Tour event in Los Angeles, starting this week, and his participation in his next scheduled event in Washington DC is also in doubt.

Murray was injured while playing Davis Cup doubles on Saturday.

Murray can ill-afford a long absence now. He has a slew of ranking points to defend in the run-up to next month's US Open, where he had hoped to be one of the 32 seeds.

The injury might further delay the start of a new coaching relationship with Brad Gilbert. An announcement on a deal between Murray, Gilbert and the Lawn Tennis Association has been postponed repeatedly due to contractual wrangles, though these at least appear to have been resolved.

Murray hopeful of swift comeback



Andy Murray expects to return to action in Washington next week after a neck injury proved less serious than feared.

The Briton withdrew from this week's Los Angeles event after picking up the injury during Great Britain's Davis Cup defeat by Israel over the weekend.

"I had a scan done on my neck Monday and it confirmed I had muscle spasms on my left side," Murray told his website.

"There was no significant damage to my spine, muscle or vertebrae so as of now I need a bit of rest."

Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Coach Brad Gilbert###

Its official finally:

Quote:
Gilbert Accepts Murray Coach Role



Brad Gilbert will be Andy Murray's new coach and work with the Lawn Tennis Association on other projects.

The American, 44, who has worked with Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick, will join Murray at next week's Legg Mason Tennis Classic in Washington.

LTA chief executive Roger Draper said: "Brad has a world-class track record.

"He will play a central role in helping us improve our performance and success, from elite players like Andy through to our up and coming talent."

Draper stressed: "Brad will be fully focused on front-line coaching and is not a replacement for the position of performance director.

"As part of our new strategy for British tennis we want the best people in the world actually 'on the ground' helping create more tennis champions."

Gilbert, a former top-five player who won 20 singles titles, said: "I'm really looking forward to working with Andy - he is one of the most talented young players on the tour.

"I am also looking forward to working at the LTA, and it's great to see Roger Draper making changes for the benefit of British tennis."

Scot Murray said: "Back in April, I set a very high standard for what my next coach needed to have in terms of experience, and Brad meets all the requirements.

"While growing up, Agassi was one of the players I looked up to.

"He won several Grand Slams and reached number one in the world with Brad, so I am delighted to now have Brad as my coach.

"It's great to see that the new LTA are looking to bring in the best coaches in the world to help British tennis."

Murray, 19, has been without a coach since splitting with Mark Petchey last year, and his results this season have been patchy.

As well as coaching Murray, Gilbert will also work on other LTA programmes including leading junior tennis camps at under-12 and under-14 levels.

He will also work with the LTA's network of coaches and its high-performance clubs and academies.

Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Coach Brad Gilbert###

This has been a long time coming but sweet all the same. Gilbert is everything Andy needs but the real benefits of the partnership may not be evident until next year. Although there is a lot of hard work to be done over the next few weeks, beginning next week in Washington.

He couldn't have got a better coach. Now he has to realise his potential and become a winner. He must believe he can be number one.

Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Coach Brad Gilbert###

I wish Andy the best of luck in his next tournies

However, I really hope Brad doesn't take the creativity out of Andy's game. I know it's selfish but I love his dropshots, and Gilbert was cringing basically everytime Andy hit one at Wimbledon. I just don't like Gilbert at all, and I hope Andy stays with his game.

Re: ###The Road to the US Open: Coach Brad Gilbert###

Murray 'needs to become stronger'

Brad Gilbert will concentrate on building up Andy Murray's strength when he starts work as the Briton's coach.

The American, who was appointed by the Lawn Tennis Association on Wednesday, expects to start making significant progress after the US hardcourt season.

"There's no magic pill to take that makes you a better player," Gilbert told The Times.

"Andy needs to become physically stronger, and over the next year that will be a big focus for us."

He added: "The best time to make changes will be after the Open; it's hard to make any real big impressions when he is going straight into tournaments."

Gilbert helped guide both Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick to the top of the world rankings and looks like being a hard task-master with 19-year-old Murray.

"If Andy Murray isn't an early-morning person, that's going to change," said Gilbert.

"The standards I set are those I learnt from my only coach, Tom Chivington from Foothills College in Los Altos, California - you put in an honest, hard day's work every day.

"It doesn't mean you are going to win every time but it sure gives you a better chance. Every day you want to be that little bit better.

"And it can never be the coach's way or the highway; the player will have his opinions and I hear Andy's are pretty strong. I'll certainly have mine and it's about where we meet."

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/tennis/5219538.stm


IMO, I really think Brad could be the best possible person for Andy. He's a really good coach and I think he will help to improve Andy's game all around. I'm just wondering if they're going to get along As it said in the article, both guys have really strong opinions and a lot of times they're probably going to clash.
