ESPN picks Murray to win AO

I am surprised but I guess I shouldn't be. The guys at ESPN usually go with the favorite, but I thought that'd be Nadal:

Nadal will poses some problems for Murray in the semis. That's for sure.

Re: ESPN picks Murray to win AO

Here are 6 more picks: http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/ten...ory?id=3834564

Murray goes 5 out of 6. Wow. Bandwagon?

Re: ESPN picks Murray to win AO

Yeah Nadal will surely pose problems, I mean he rarely gives anything away and obviously has a fantastic game, but HC has never been his strongest surface, and Murray on form can literally demolish Nadal on hardcourt, Tsonga style.

Re: ESPN picks Murray to win AO

Is it just me or could this be the year that Nalbandian finally wins his first slam. If he reaches the final against Murray, he might pull it off, no?

Nalby will lose to Fed in semis me thinks. But it will be a great start for him.

Isner and Tomic are more of a threat than Tipsy apparently. What a joke.

Re: ESPN picks Murray to win AO

I suspect we'll be seeing every minute of every Murray match on ESPN. It'll be Murray, Roddick and Williams sisters - and maybe Fed/Nadal if they're playing at a time those other four aren't.

Absolutely, you shouldn't be surprised at all. NOW time it's going to Murray.

GO Roger Federer, Nick Kyrgios, Borna Coric, Vasek Pospisil, Thomaz Bellucci, Kei Nishikori, , Milos Raonic, Jerzy Janowicz, Grigor Dimitrov, Dennis Novikov and Bernard Tomic

Borna Coric will be No 1 by May 2016
Nick Kyrgios will be No 1 by Jan 2016

Re: ESPN picks Murray to win AO

Boy I am glad Sharapova is out of this year's edition. I don't wish any player any ill but when she is on or when Venus is playing a 13 year old from Jordan, ESPN always go with that even if Federer is playing Nadal. I mean I am sure we wouldn't have seen the greatest final ever at Wimbledon if Serena and Venus were playing at the same time. ESPN would've showed the women's match and Dick Enberg would have covered the taped coverage of Fed-Nadal

Most fans/publications go with the bandwagon player at the moment so it's not surprising they went with Murray. Bud Collins is the only reliable source at the moment.

Funny you say that as ESPN's slam coverage has been quite good over the past few years, they show all the matches not the just those few that you're personally obsessed with.

The BBC will be a million times worse, it'll be nothing but Murray 24/7 and everyone else be damned. Pity the British tennis fans.

Uhh oh

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
