Olympic Gold Medal winner Andy Murray ,in his first round match, took out 97th ranked Italian Flavio Cipolla without much trouble 6-1,6-3
The problem is ,in his next match he faces huge serving Canadian Milos Raonic seeded 16th here, but of late playing like a top 10er ,losing a heartbreaking match to Joe Wille Tsonga 23- 25 in the 3rd at the London games.
Murray looked reasonably fresh but wasn't pressed at all by the Italian.
Midway through the 2nd set the Scot called for the trainer for a calf issue which was treated with massage and then proceeded to run out the set 6-3.
I'm looking for Raonic to take Murray out in the next round, to the screaming delight of the Toronto crowd.
I'm not sure Djokovic gets by Tomic tonight. He must be down in the dumps after being eliminated from the medal podium in London last week.
Tomic doesn't have any Big Weapons but he might offer up just enough resistance for Nole to fold considering the Schedule of the past 10 or 12 weeks.
Jo Wille Tsonga commenting on the Scheduling issue at his post match (lost) Press conference when I asked him about the players councils move last year to gain more control of the Tour said "No I mean,I would say nothing is perfect.
You know,we haveto work on it I think.We all work on it,but anyway it's difficult to change,you know.We tried to do some change,but we have to improve it. I'm sure people who's involved in that will do some things."
Sounds to me like the players council was spanked and sent to its room without dinner.
In the meanwhile ,Tournament directors are dealing with last minuite withdrawls and suspect losses in the early rounds of the masters events that are too tightly packed.
Just my Opinion, Howie Burnett,
