Murray Back In The Top 10

by Snape (U3018951) 05 May 2008
comment on the article

I always like this time of the year as their are some great tournaments coming up including two slams. This is a fantastic time for Murray not just to gain some momentum but to get some ranking points to get himself in the top 10 again soon.
He has no points to defend for over three months and I hope he now picks up the points to give himself a good chance of good seedings going in the French which is less than three weeks aways and Wimbledon. My question would be how high do you think he can get by the time the green green grass of home comes around?

such a muppet. he so overrated. he better start getting some results otherwise his carrer over fast than henmans.

He's 'overrated' by the official ATP rankings, is he? And oh dear, you're not seriously suggesting that his career could be even shorter than Henman's brisk fourteen years on the tour? How scathing!

Your stupidity amazes me, and not in a good way.

Murray Slumps to Defeat"?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Who writes these title BBC? how about:

"Murray goes down fighting"

He started badly and then improved against a 'form' player. Quite good play in the second set. I would say a slump is the opposite - starting out well then playing badly to lose.

Stupid title

Not so much a thought on todays action, but I'd just like to point out that the BBC have yet again referred to Andy Murry as "The Scott" while losing and "The Brit" when winning.

Seriously BBC, give it up!

Murray at this point of time is Stoke'd - breaking into the top league once in a while, but low expectations when they get there.

Murray has a problem. He is talented, no doubt. It doesn't take a genius to see that his body language and his verbal outbursts reflect a problem of discipline. Opponents thrive on it and many watchers of tennis don't find it attractive.

Pity, but he has time to grow out of it ... perhaps

Murray should have this in the bag, as Tursunov is poor on clay. But we all know what Andy Murray is like!

Well ol' Dmitry never used to have much of a problem turning over Tim Henman as I recall.

Be interesting to see how far British tennis has progressed under its new Scottish ownership...

See where I'm going with this? laugh
