*~* Andy into round 2 at the US Open *~*
 
Unfortunatley he has to go through quallies to get to the main draw as he did not recieve a wildcard.

Wild Cards went out to Jan Michael Gambill, Mark Flip :rolleyes: and a bunch of young Americans who'll all lose 1st round ;) :p


Edit...HES IN THE MAIN DRAW!!!!!!!!! :worship: :worship: :worship:


Edit Edit...Bring on r2 :D

When is the qualifying draw made? Monday sometime? It'll be interesting to follow how he does. I followed Alex last year and he was exciting, although I did get cross with him losing to Calatrava :(

Dissappointing about the wildcards frankly as those bunch of "young americans" include three players (baker, ram and reynolds) who Murray has beaten this year without losing a set to any of them! But patriotism rules in these things so it is not unexpected.

Let's hope Murray is seeded in the qualifying draw and makes it through!!

Does anyone know if ranking points are up for grabs in qualifying?

That's a good question. After checking I think this is the relevant (entry points) information:

Additional points in qualifying:
Qualifying Second First
Round Round Round
Grand Slams 8 4 1

and 15 additional points to any US Open proper points if you win all 3 qualifying matches and make the main draw.

In terms of race points you only get 3 (+main draw points) if you qualify. So qualification and a first round loss is 4 race points and 20 entry points. Hope that helps. :)

Hmm, bit disappointing considering there's other people lower in the rankings than him and most of them are american but at Wimbie we do give most of our wc's to brits so it's just the same as there.

I don't know for sure. I think there are 32 seeds though I could easily be wrong, my memory from last year is terrible!
Judging by the qualifying entry list and what Andy's ranking might be come Monday, I'm gonna take a stab at somewhere around 15th seed. We'll have to wait til Monday night, well Tuesday morning for us Brits unless we're devoted enough to stay up til 4am for the draw!

No wildcard as expected. :sad: But hey he'll just have to come through qualifying!

Good Luck Andy :bounce:

I don't like the sound of this article one bit. If it's true he might pull out of qualies :bigcry:

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article...743475,00.html

The being unable to practice and constantly having to ice it and it stopping him sleeping is most concerning, especially when recently I heard that doctors confirmed it wouldn't stop him playing the qualies :(

awwwwww:sad: but better rest and hope someone who received a WC pulls out then he could be in:confused: :fiery: get well soon:)

Poor Andy. Hope he gets better and if he can't do the qualies, there is always next year. :)

:sad: I think whatever decision he makes will hopefully be the right one.

Get Well Soon Andy :hug:

Hopefully Andy will be fit to play the qualies, but if he does have to withdraw then it's not the end of the world - the last thing he needs is to aggravate this injury and not be able to improve his ranking in the rest of 2005.

:) Get well soon :)
