No No - it's not his fault or arrogance (nor is it Henmans)! It's the British fans who are arrogant! As soon as there is a guy around who wins two games in a row, they think he should win Wimbledon...

I just thought id add my bit:

I think Andy is a cracking fresh player. The kicking of tennis balls is great for everyone. It releases tension/frustration for him and his "choice" audible phrases when he misses a point are quite funny!

He WANTS to win!

Which brings me onto this question. Bookies dont like tennis outright matches and normally dont give odds about 1.10 for the favourite yet Nalbandian is 1.33!!! Andy @3.25 means they think this match could go either way! Im risking a bet on andy to win, his 3 set straight win against stepanek proved that hes a star!

He is a cheeky monkey and his outlook on his game is 21st century. I wish some of you old people would just shut up and give him a chance to progress!! This is the reason we have no English star tennis players. If im a child, Id be getting p*ssed off with the way tennis players get treated and if sporty enough go into football or another highly paid sport! Murray wants to show a better side to the sport!

ANDY TO WIN!! :-)

Is Andrew Murray too arrogant?

Quoted from this message




No. Ahead of every single game, he says "I'm going to lose." You can accuse him of false modesty if you wish, but not arrogance.

Just wait and see how he performs first against Nalbandian, but I seriously don't count his performance against Stepanek as a benchmark to how he will play against Nalbandian.

Nalbandian is a big match and big occasion player, far more than Stepanek is, regardless of the fact that Stepanek might be World no. 13.

Ill also add this:

If you exchange the word ARROGANCE with the word AMBITIOUS then i couldnt agree more!
