Last year this event was televised but I read on AM's Official Site that it won't be this year due to poor ticket sales.

Hope this isn't true.:(

"Match Report :

Greg got things underway with a very poor service game and handed the only break of serve in the first set to Murray. Murray made it 2-0 with an easy hold. both players upped their play over the next few games with ground strokes down both tram lines and a delightful lob over Murray's head by a spritely Rusedski. His official fan club where in the crowd and never stopped chanting for their man The average age of the members present must have been at least 72 !

Andy remained calm throughout the first set and he never looked threatend and took the first set 6-4. There was not a single deuce point in that first set which showed how well both were serving.

Set 2 and Andy started to play for the cameras and was getting increasingly grumpy as BP after BP went on the Greg serve. It was Greg who broke the Murray serve "against the run of play" as you would say in other less entertaining sports and he got himself out of jail again and again with good serves. His ace count wasnt high...in fact he served more double faults than aces from my recollection. Greg served out the 2nd set 6-3."

For the remainder of the match report and press conference transcipts along with interviews with James Auckland and Jamie Murray goto the Andrew Murray Messageboard (URL below). Goto the section 'latest Andy Murray news' and you will see all the Aberdeen Cup topics.

Good win for Scotland 6.5 to 1....Greg playing with a blistered hand in the final match but Murray still played well...he won 6-3 6-4.

Andy now goes to the States on Wednesday...he is looking forward to meeting up with Gilbert at the airport....He has not seen Brad since Paris.
