Murray

I'm no huge murray fan by any means but i do have a question about him.

While all the new up and comers were being talked about (monfils, nadal, gasquet) why did i never hear murrays name mentioned when people were asked who looked to be an up and coming player.

The reason i ask this is because it seems that before wimbledon he wasn't even considered a possible pro yet, and now he is beating some of the better players on tour (obviously not the top tier yet , but 2nd and 3rd tier guys) and easily making his name known in the top 100.

sorry, i was just curious because until wimbledon of this year i hadn't even heard his name mentioned on these boards or on tv.

Re: Murray

There are a few reasons, to start with Murray's only entered the pro tennis circuit this year (I believe the other young players you have mentioned have been around for a bit longer), he was also a very low ranker player before Wimbledon. Obviously he's being British and with Tim out of the tournament so early resulted in good media coverage for Andy. He beat a seeded player and had a great match against Nalbandian. The British press went crazy about him since and he has done very well so far, as you should know.

Re: Murray

Just because he is a brit and they are dying for some one at the top or at least a Brit that can win Wimbledon and Myrry comes....he is talented but most of all he is smart and knows the formula to win exactly what the Brits are starving for......

He got a lot of wildcards.

I see a lot of people claiming that Murray has haters... again and again... and again. But I rarely see the people that are supposedly hating on him?

Maybe if you stepped down on your Anti-Haters Inquisition, people wouldn't feel so annoyed.
