    I never thougth I would fancy Andy vs. Roger! Go on Andy, go on son!

  2. halogen ovens November 23, 2010 at 10:49

    Just watching Andy and Roger…Murray looks tight. Not getting enough depth during rallies and allowing Fed to put pressure on him

  3. silverstone tickets November 21, 2010 at 05:40

    I didn’t like Andy Murray when he first appeard, but he has grown on me a lot in the last couple of years. Hard working and focused, shame I can’t see him ever beating Roger and Rafa for the number 1 spot.
