Murray The Man To Beat, Despite Column To The Contrary

Well, its all happening here in the desert – first Rafael Nadal going out to Gael Monfils, then Andy Murray comfortably disposing of Roger Federer. I was reading some ┬ácolumn by a guy from a prominent tennis website who says Murray only has a 25% chance of winning the Oz Open, and he couldn’t understand what all the talk was about Murray!

He said all of Murray’s off season training was just hype, and whats more, he’d only ever made it to the semis of a major ( now, there’s some accurate journalism….PS The US Open was the last major that was played! How does this guy think we can take his comments seriously!!!) and couldn’t be seen as the guy to beat.

Well hear it from me…Murray is the guy to beat at The Australian Open, he’s beaten all the top boys plenty now, and has learned a lot from That US Open FINAL. I know his “team” well and the off-season training was brutal….the kid is in good shape, and bar any injury, will be able to go the distance with anyone!

It is good to see Andy Roddick back in the mix again and I especially enjoyed his exploits at the net!

Enjoy….I certainly have enjoyed this week. These guys really know how to put on an event !!
