Murray In Tokyo Without Lendl Is Facing New Challenges

US Open champion Andy Murray is ready to get back to the competitive arena and three weeks after his first Grand Slam triumph will begin his bid to retain the Rakuten Japan Open title with a tricky confrontation against Gael Monfils.

Murray arrived in Tokyo on Thursday but is not with coach Ivan Lendl for the Asian swing where last year he also won titles in Bangkok and Shanghai. “It will be a tough first match against Gael,” said Murray. “I've played him I think five times and lost to him a couple of times. He's a great athlete.”


Li Doesn't Give In To Pressure

Li Na, who suffered an embarrassing defeat in the first round of the China Open's last year, says that she feels more at ease this time around.

"I don't give in to too much pressure, because after all you never know how your performance is going to be," she said. "You don't know the performance of the opponent either." What really matters is you can experience the whole match and concentrate."


Murray In Tokyo Hoping To Defend Two Titles

The year-end ATP wrap-up event in London remains the prime late-season goal for Andy Murray, with the Scot hoping for a better showing at home than he had as he fizzled out in 2011 with injury and fatigue.

The No. 3 is resuming this week as he defends singles and doubles titles in Tokyo at the Japan Open. But after winning three straight Asian titles in as many weeks a year ago, he realizes he might have also compromised his fitness,


Simon Breaks With Coach Tulasne

Gilles Simon has joined French compatriot Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in stepping away from a coach and going it alone on the ATP. While Tsonga cut the ties months ago and has maintained a top 10 ATP position, it's all new to Simon, as the No. 19 parted amicably with longtime mentor Thierry Tulasne while playing the Thailand Open.
