Well done Andy :banana:

I know this is not a huge result and British players always come up with a decent win here and there during the grass court events but I think Andy is the real deal and not only is he British, he is Scottish which is something Scottish fans haven't had before. He played really well. Good luck in round 3 Andy :yeah:

He is only Scottish when he loses and British when he wins.

I know exactly what you mean. When Greg was suspected of using stimulants, the word Canadian suddenly popped up all over the place....

I am Scottish but hope all the British players do well but it is nice to see someone from Scotland out there who looks like he can really do something on the tour. We haven't had that before.

Glad he got a good win, because if Taylor is going to win grass is a tough surface to beat him on! :)

Well done, Andrew! :D

In fairness to Dent he wasn't at his best and the commentators mentioned he hasn't played much recently. Andy Murray did play well though. It wasn't just a case of Dent playing badly. Of course the British press will blow this out of proportion (Ian Flanagan was the next Tim Henman last year after beating a slumping Philippoussis) but Andy was a lot more impressive. He looks like he has the ability to do well on the tour and it didn't feel like a fluky win for a British player that often happens during the grass season.

Alfonso, most people think he's ugly.

I think it's pretty cute, but I'm one of few.

he hit some great passing shots :)

but dent has to get in shape, i mean, the guy has to lose at least 20 pounds in order to be able to compete with anyone inside the top200 at this point. his game is too physical for him to be so out of shape

Well done Murray :)
He played well, but Dent was poor. Dent didin't get enough first serves in, his 2nd serve sat up too much and his volleying was poor. Best parts of Murray's game were his serve and returns.
He's definitely got a bright future in the game, but Johansson tomorrow will be a bigger test.

he basically looks like your average british youngster but is a little cute;)

well done andy:yeah:

Yeah, he did brilliantly. I agree, some of them passing shots were just stunning!

Dent has had an ankle injury for a while and I think a commentator did touch on the subject of him not being in shape particularly. I hoep Andy's luck continues.

GO ANDY!!

Amazing that is great I honestly thought that he was beaten when he came up against Taylor, ahh well good luck for the next round Andy.

The New British Number 1, it won't be hard to get there.

GO ANDY!!Yes but that was from March. Granted he had very little match play in him since he skipped the entire clay season... but Taylor is NEVER in shape.

But regardless, it's a good win for the youngster, but a terrible loss for Dent IMO. Grass is his best surface and his best chance for results.

Surprised at the result. Dent, get in shape and you can be a factor on tour. Pretty soon, it's going to be too late (maybe it already is). NIce win for the youngster though. This must give him some much needed confidence.

If Dent doesn't get first serves in, he's ripe for the picking giving up short balls.

f Dent doesn't get first serves in, he's ripe for the picking giving up short balls.

He is quite vunerable off of the second ball. He always seems to have games where he cannot get a first serve in and then he is done for because since his groundstrokes (especially his BH) suck, he has a hard time breaking back.

Good win for Murray. Let's see what he can do now.

good ;)
well i was surprised most by his serving... he finished the match point with a 137 mph Ace out wide, he doesnt look as big and strong as someone who can hit regular 135+ mph first serves...
but well i suppose the good grass courts at queens are part of that reason..
Roddick served a 153 mph serve today v Scudling... just 2 outside his record.

I heard that Murray is a better player on clay than on grass... Isn't he? Most of his Futures titles were in clay and also he trained at Casal/Sánchez-Vicario academy in Valencia, Spain

Corey Feldman

Yes, he said he prefers clay...
he lost in the Semis of the french Juniors last week, but did win the US Open jun last year..
