Default Bollettieri thinks Murray can't win a GS

It's not like I agree with him 100%, because the guy defo has a chance in the next 2 years with more luck.
The same old story but now a genius coach states it.

A german article: http://www.spox.com/de/sport/mehrspo...e-lisicki.html

Bollettieri should know, all those GS champs his academy produced.

Where's the link to what he said anyway?

Sure he can. It will be tough but it's not impossible. I'd like to see the source too.

Bollettieri is an overrated mug who happens to have coached a few good kids becuase of the massive money he gets.

why people still listen to what he says is anyone's guess.

I stopped reading when I got to the part where he says that Rafa doesn’t give 100%; he give 200%.

He’s such a blowhard. He’s always tooting his own horn and dealing in hyperbole.

The interview is a bit long, but I could try to translate the Murray-part.

Nick: "Look, Andy is a great character, similar to my Agassi. But why don't you just take what Boris Becker said about him: "Andy Murray doesn't have a weapon and will never win a GS", these are Boris' words. And I go along with him (not sure if this is the right verb). Murray has improved his forehand and his serve, his footwork is fantastic, he's a great return player, has got a world-class backhand, but in order to win a GS, he would have to play a bit more offensive. The question is if he's got the weapons to win a big thing? I don't think so. Especially not because there are so many other strong guys. It won't be easy for Murray."

Not sure if mine is better than the link Lawrence posted.

Who is this clown? Does he not have a single functioning brain cell in his head? Or is he really that stupid?

Don't agree with Bollettieri, I actually think Andy will grab a slam during the next few years. Don't think he'll win a lot more than one though.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Bollettieri is a old dude that became a prominent tennis coach because some of the old timers (Agassi, Courier, Sampras) spent some time at his academy!!!!!!! He was never a tennis player, just a good business man, running an academy and charging a fortune. In the US they refer to his academy as to Bollitierri machine!!!! I would never take anything he says for real!!!!

As far as Murray is concerned, I know he will win a slam and shut up all the haters around him. 2012 is Murray's year!!!!! You heard it here first.
