Andy Murray has had a fantastic start to the new season and there is no reason why he cannot win the title today. I wish him well.
Now we see the start of the new season with 3 tournaments with the top players scattered amongst the 3 and some not even playing. Federer for example.
The remainder are playing the best of 3 sets in the 3 small tournaments. This week has been a good test of these players form. And Andy Murray has shone.
Now apart from Davydenko he was expected to beat his opponents. Well he was even expected to beat Davydenko in truth due to his good record.
The problem is people are getting carried away and saying he is going to win a Slam this year. But I think a truer test would be to wait until the A.O . When all the top players will be playing and its best of 5 over 2 weeks.
If he does well there then we are ready to rock and roll and I think he will have a fantastic year. At the moment it is far to early to tell although the omens are good.
The funny thing is some on here are now comparing Murray to Henman and are saying Henman was a loser and Murray is a TRUE winner.
I would like to put the record straight by saying that people have very short memories. Tim Henman got to numerous smaller tournament finals . Henman was twice a finalist in Doha. Murray is not unique there. He has a long way to go to match Tim Henmans achievements. The potential is definitely there no question. But a truer test is the Grand Slams. A couple of semis or finals in the next 3 years and we could seriously start talking a British G.S champion at last .
Until then. Patience. Patience. Lets not get carried away.
Even though we do see the winds of change upon us
