As far as Murray is concerned, I know he will win a slam and shut up all the haters around him. 2012 is Murray's year!!!!! You heard it here first.
So, he's some old clown who believes he's always right because he couched some big players. Clown.

Actually, I've been saying 2012 will be Murray's year for the past few months, so no, we haven't heard it here first.

You've booked 2009,2010,2011,2012 and 2013 as 'Murray's year'

So it's pretty hard for someone to claim 'first' in that department, you sure are right about that. Whether it's something to be proud of when you do get one right one of these years...

Re: Bollettieri thinks Murray can't win a GS

Bollettieri has traditionally been quite fond of Murray and has given him plenty of praise. Perhaps this is an anti jinx?

In his book he disses Bollettieri first, but later he refers to him as a great mentor and coach.

Yeah that's the interesting part. He's known for his support for Murray, so its pretty surprising to see this.

Re: Bollettieri thinks Murray can't win a GS

The journalist asked Bollettieri when he thinks Murray will win a Slam. Bollettieri replied "never". I have the exact same opinion as Bollettieri. I could be wrong, but everyone is entitled to have an opinion. There are more than a few people who believe that Murray (and Wozniacki) will never win a Slam.

I thought the same thing about Jankovic, Safina, Gasquet, Tsonga, Davydenko, Monfils, Ferrer, Berdych, Soderling, and Azarenka.

I have to admit Sam Stosur really surprised me at the US Open though.

He is right, but obviously some people who live in their parents' basement know it better.

Re: Bollettieri thinks Murray can't win a GS

I wonder if there has been a player to reach the semifinals or better of the all the grandslams in one year and never went on to win a slam.

Umm, actually Mike Agassi is the man most responsible for his success and in lesser way Brad Gilbert who was great adviser/friend/support or "coach" as they say.

Re: Bollettieri thinks Murray can't win a GS

Murray has all the abilit in the world to win a slam at some point, it doesnt exactly mean he will though. He might, he might not. With the decline of Nadal at the moment and with Fed dipping far below his best I'm more inclined to say that he will in the near future, or at least the next year. He has the talent to do it, he just needs to put it together for the right moment in the right match.
