Andy Murray in round no. 1

02.03.2008 | Tennis

Roger will meet Andy Murray (ATP 12) in the first round of the Dubai Championships on Monday. Roger has not played since his defeat by eventual champion Novak Djokovic in the semi-finals of the Australian Open over a month ago.  

 

Murray has won already two tournament in the first two months of this year. The head to head currently stands at 1-1, Roger took home the final in Bangkok in 2005, Murray won Cincinnati in 2006. Roger could meet fellow countryman Stanislas Wawrinka (ATP 34) in the round of the last 8.

 

"I knew the draw was going to be tough but this is obviously a bit more particular because my opponent's so high ranked," our star said. "He's already won two tournaments and I haven't even played two tournaments, so it's an interesting first-round match."

 

"I'm saving myself for what's ahead, and ahead is a lot of tournaments," he added. "From Dubai to the U.S. Open I'll not have more than two weeks off ever. So taking the break was all part of the plan. But I'm happy to be back playing, first of all, because I've been away from the game a little bit, taking it easy. It's only my second tournament in four months so I'm just excited being back healthy after struggling in Australia. Hopefully this time round I'll feel better on the court again."

Roger

I was sad and shocked that you went out in the first round, but realistically you have not played a tournament since the AO.

I agree with your other fans, I think you need to get a coach if you plan on staying at the top for the next ten yea

Oh no,

What’s going on Roger?

You definitely have shaken my confidence. This loss really worries me so much than your loss in Australian Open.
