He should play Casablanca next year, not even joking.

He should try his luck on some tournament or challenger while all the big boys are busy playing at Masters.

Lendl:"Murray can play better on clay than he believes"

Well, he can't play any worse than the last time, that's for sure!

If Murray is 100% fit and maybe can find a good form in Madrid or Rome then i am sure he can win RG.
He has the game to be successful on clay. Everyone who knows 1% about tennis is seeing this.

RIP HENRY.

You can't counterpunch on clay AS SIMPLE AS THAT !!
For instance: Murray , Simon.
/Thread.
everyone who has played tennis himself knows this ... it's simply thrice as hard and twice as ineffective to counter-punch on clay

Murray can only win if he has a hurricane to help him, so no!

If he talks with the wing gods, then he can snatch a Houston.

He can't slide on clay. He just runs and runs on clay to cover the court. He will need to be very lucky to win a title on clay.

Well Lendl has a handful of RG titles so he is working with the right guy, it is all about working hard and belief.

Also see Hewitt.

Murray is just useless on Clay, though he can be number 1 even without Clay, Sampras like.
