    Murray in first-round action against Ito World No. 4 Andy Murray is set to begin his run at the 2012 French Open, as he squares off against Japan’s Tatsuma Ito on Tuesday. The players are vying for a spot in the round of 64.

    Fourth seed Andy Murray makes his return to clay-court competition after reaching the round of 16 at the Masters 1000 Rome. The 25-year-old defeated former world No. 3 David Nalbandian in his opener before falling to Richard Gasquet in round three.

    Murray will be making his sixth appearance at the French Open, where he made last year’s final four (lost to Nadal).

    World No. 68 Tatsuma Ito is back on court after competing for Japan at the World Team Championship in Dusseldorf. The 24-year-old is set to debut at the French Open on Tuesday.

    Prediction: Murray in straight sets.

Japan dude

Apparently Ito means dragon in Japanense, and Ito has a wicked, heavy, strong forehand which is nicknamed the dragon shot.................

Muzza waltzed through 1st set but 2nd set is a dog-fight.................

Ito's forehand is truly fearsome....................

Andy likes to make work for himself, lol! Tatsuma was no push over though with more experience at 250/masters level he has the makings of a fearsome opponent, strong forehand and played a few crafty drop shots.

rafaisthebest - you got it

RickyDimon , 5/29/12 7:07 PM

Seems like a good, easy win for Andy. What was that mentioned about his abdomen? :(( Hope it's nothing really.

Andy can serve bagels/breadsticks too :)
danica, in post match interview he said "just niggles" so fingers crossed.
