I like it. Verdasco/Raonic suits him pretty well. Almagro might not but hey he lost to Tsonga in Madrid so likely not in excellent shape. The QF wasn't going to be easy no matter what. And let's remember he has dished out 6-1 sets in his two last meetings with Djokovic (lost one of them...)
What is annoying is that Murray ALWAYS get a better draw. When Sod was #4 he got a worse draw. Now he is back at #5 and he gets worse draws. It's getting stupid.
Also first tournament where he will have his new coach present! Lets hope for a good start
