Has anyone noted this; Andy Murray and Bunny Austin



Andy Murray: 3 Grand Slam finals lost, no sets won

Buddy Austin: 3 Grand Slam finals lost, no sets won

In both cases each lost the the GOATs of their era in the final (Vines, Budge, Federer, Djokovic)

Both were British

Austin also lost in the finals of the doubles at the French and Wimbledon - poor guy.

Whilst Murray got over $1 million for his runners up appearance at the Australian Open all Austin received for being the runnerup in the 1938 final was a £10 gift voucher from the jeweller's Mappin and Webb. Austin was rejected from the All England Club for many years because of the vote of one man vetoing his entry due to a grudge held from Cambridge. Austin was also held in little regard by Fred Perry despite being of equal help in bring the British Davis Cup between 1933-36. All a bit sad really.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

Well, Andy just became the first British man to reach the Wimbledon final since Bunny in 1938. We'll see if he remains at Bunny or advances to Perry.
