Andy Murray: the Kournikova of the ATP?

Ok, so Murray, like Kournikova, is getting an enormous amount of hype because of his pretty face and fabulous legs. For his inflated ego, it's great for him, however I'm worried expectations will always be too high for him.
He already reached an ATP final; only the greatest player of all time (well, for now, Andy might have that title in a couple of years) was able to stop the Murray Machine. And people talk about this like if it was nothing special. Even if he wins Wimbledon, people will question whether he can win it 2 times. I think Andy is in a no-win situation, no matter how great his accomplishments are, there's always people who'll question the Murray greatness.

Grrr!

I'm confident he'll win at least one title and get higher than number 8 in the world.

I've heard scottish dentists want to use Murray teeth as an national example of teeth-greatness.

Most of the people bashing Murray are Djokovic fans who are pissed of their guy is looking more and more like a lame duck.

None of the people bashing Murray are Djokovic fans... half of us really like Murray. I would say the inverse is true, that it's Murray fans that insult Djokovic... but oh wait, that's only you.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

I like Murray and Djokovic equally (except maybe Djokovic a little more cuz he really does have a pretty face )
