A more relaxed schedule, with only a few matches on the schedule all day. Also noticeably more singles guys had arrived and were populating the practice courts.

I started off watching some of ERV practice.

Following the crowds, I quickly found Murray practicing with Muller.

They got replaced by Jamie, Peers, Fleming and Marray.

On the other crt Dimitrov and Raonic were just starting their practice session.

I moved to court 1 for the end of the first set between Melzer and Mathieu (now with a nicer tape job on his knee). Melzer was really grumpy and pissed off about every call going against him.

After that one had finished, Andy Murray was again on the practice court, with quite a crowd watching now. I moved along to find Pospisil and Goffin practicing on the much quieter courts :p

Next up were Istomin (who I almost didn't recognise with the hair cut) and Bolelli together.

Next match of the day was Kuznetsov v Kamke.

Not the most riveting of matches :/ I stayed put for the final doubles qualies match between Murray/Peers and Fleming/Marray.

Murray/Peers are sliding down the ranking for some time now. Amazing that 2 years ago they were in touching distance of getting into the WTF. This wasn't a good match from them.
Of course in didn't matter in the end as Andy Murray/Muller withdrew from the doubles draw to get his brother in because of illness, so they got in as LL anyway.

Doubles guys sticking together; Rojer, Tecau, Bopanna and Delgado were all in the stands to watch again.

On my last stroll passed the practice courts before leaving , I had my first sighting of Benneteau.

Next door Lindstedt and Matkowski were practicing again with Klaasen and Paes.

Next to them Gulbis was practicing with Bolelli.

To think I watched Gulbis in qualifying here only a year ago.
That was enough for the day, cos I had a trip back to Amsterdam to make.
