"Murray The Best In The World"

Too bad, Muzza. No chance whatsoever at the WTF anymore now.

:)Simon Reed is Back: "Murray the best in the world

http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/tennis...d/article/443/

It was great to see Andy Murray make a winning comeback in Valencia and I still believe he is the best tennis player in the world, that's not to say he's going to win a Grand Slam.

To come back in Valencia and win after all that time out is amazing, but until he wins a Grand Slam you have to regard him as being on a lesser level than the likes of Federer and Nadal.I don't think Federer is the player he was, Nadal is not the player he was. Djokovic seems to be coming back and there are others coming up, Cilic is one, but I think they are all pretty level and you can't pick a number one.

But if you press me to pick a number one, you look at who has been the most consistent outside of slams and it is Andy Murray.

He has won six times now, but for us to truly believe he needs to win a Slam; I am sure that will come.

Heading to London fresh will help him and it will help him next year for the Australian Open.

Right now if you ask me who is going to win in London I would have to say Murray. He is the favourite for me.

Federer is not playing well, for Djokovic to beat him in Basel is a great result for Djokovic and Nadal is not quite there either after all his problems.

I see Andy Murray as the favourite to win in London, but not in Australia. He has to prove he can win a Grand Slam first.

London will be a great occasion and Murray will go there being lightly raced and then on to Australia. Australia is his ideal surface and it is a great chance for him - but as I say, he needs to prove he can do it on the big occasion.

So he believes Murray is the best,but think he is on lesser level than Nadal and Fed

I wish he'd stick to picking Muzza and no one else for at least a decade

Simon Reed needs to shut the fuck up. Someone kill him. This dude almost has me believing in jinxes.

It helps if you are vaguely familiar with someone's posting history before you start attempting wisecracks. There's a difference between being a fan and picking your favourite to win every tournament that he enters.

Really?Look at his work experience

Simon Reed's career began with BBC Radio in the late sixties when he worked for BBC Radio Sport, BBC World Service and BBC Radio London. From 1973, he was a presenter and reporter for Thames TV before freelancing in the early days of Sky Sports. In 1995, he became Head of Commentators for Eurosport specialising in tennis. He has covered three Olympic Games and has commentated on the last eight Wimbledon Championships.

Re: Simon Reed Does It Again...

Masters Series are all Murray can win so Reed is right.I the mean time Murray has 1 less slam Andy Roddick;Novak Djokovic and Juan Martin Del Potro's 1 and 6 less than Rafael Nadal and 15 less than Roger Federer

Melania Trump who is not qualified to shine Michelle Obama's shoes might very well be the first semi-literate AND vapid First Lady of the US
