Andy in Thailand 2006

And you aren't going to believe who he plays in the 1st Round--Tim Henman Andy is seeded #4 in the Tournament.

Re: Andy in Thailand 2006

That is my feeling also. But I do think it is a shame that they have to meet right off in the 1st Round

Re: Andy in Thailand 2006

Go Andy!!

Henman fired up for Murray battle




Tim Henman says he knows he will have to raise his game when he faces Andy Murray in round one of the Thailand Open in Bangkok on Wednesday.

The winner plays fellow Briton Alex Bogdanovic in the second round after his victory over Yeu-Tzuoo Wang.

British number one Murray, who played in the Davis Cup win over Ukraine on Sunday, was runner-up to Roger Federer in the tournament last year.

"I was happy when I heard I was facing him," he told newspaper Siam Sport.

"Every time we've met he's been in great form but if I want to progress I must play better than I have so far."

Henman missed the tournament last year with a back injury and will be keen to avoid a third loss to Murray this year.

The tournament is going ahead in Bangkok despite the recent military coup in the country, but Henman said he was not worried about that.

"I spoke to people before I came here and they said everything is all right. I feel comfortable here," he said.

"I would not play here if I'm not comfortable."

I was shocked also I bet Brad Gilbert is not going to be happy about this!

Re: Andy in Thailand 2006

I guess he was tried or something from his DC matches.

At least, he's still alive in doubles with his brother Jaimes!!!

Re: Andy in Thailand 2006







Fourth-seeded Andy Murray did not dwell on the disappointment of losing his first career match in four meetings against British compatriot Tim Henman at the Thailand Open on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old was immediately whisked away to make his Thai boxing debut against the 1996 Olympic gold medalist Somruk Kumsing.

Kumsing took Murray through his paces and taught the Scot a few tricks on site at the Impact Arena in Bangkok. Hundreds of fans and media attended the event and afterwards Murray received a pair of shorts as a gift.

"It was good fun and it's always good to meet athletes from other sports,” Murray explained afterwards. “He showed me some moves but I didn't want to kick him too hard. He said I am powerful."

Murray arrived in Bangkok on Monday, having helped Great Britain maintain their place in the Davis Cup Euro-African zone following a 3-2 win over Ukraine in Odessa on Sunday.

Earlier this season Murray captured his maiden ATP title in San Jose, beating Lleyton Hewitt in the final. He also finished runner-up to Arnaud Clement in Washington and currently holds a 37-22 match record for the year. He is currently ranked No. 17 in the INDESIT ATP 2006 Race.

I watched his doubles match today. So glad to see them having fun together


Oh, I bumped into Andy today at Starbucks...
I went in to get a cup of coffee. He was with Brad and Vijah talking about tennis and stuff. He was about to leave for his doubles match so I asked Andy if I could have a picture with him... He was smilling and said "sure!"

I asked Brad to do the honor

Me: Brad, can you take a pic of me and Andy?
Brad: Sure... but how can I do this thing?
Me: (It's a phone camera btw.) Just press the center button.
Brad: Oh, okay
*
*
*

Andy: The other way around, Brad!!!! (smiling)
Brad: Oh, sure. I'm not very smart with the phone!

*Well, he turned the camera facing himself. Pretty funny!*

Then the other girl walked in. Also asked Brad to take a pic for her...

And Brad did it again!!!!! He faced the camera to himself. We all told him "The OTHER WAY AROUND!!"

Brad was like, you can see I'm not very good at it.

I think I heard him say that he was silly or sth!


Andy is really nice!

Well, I'm not home right now and I'll be going to Hong Kong next week. So I'll try my best to post them asap

*My pic with Andy was poor in term of quality It was dark since Starbucks itself wasn't a great place to take a picture. Plus, my Nokia N70 isn't in a good shape anymore...

I remember when he lost to Bagdhatis at Wimbledon, he was standing signing autographs for like 15 minutes.
