Andy Murray says he feels in a good frame of mind heading into the Australian Open under the coaching of easygoing Amelie Mauresmo as the pair develop a greater understanding. Murray, a three-time runner-up at the Australian Open, had a surprise split with coach Ivan Lendl, then controversially hired former women's number one Mauresmo, last June. The two-time Grand Slam champion lost his Wimbledon title and briefly fell out of the top 10 for the first time in six years, but feels things are coming together under the Frenchwoman, who won the Melbourne title in 2006.

Everything was coming up Roger Federer. From the withdrawal of Rafael Nadal, to an easy draw that didn’t include Andy Murray, to those two saved match points during a two-set comeback against Gael Monfils, to Kei Nishikori’s stunning semifinal win over Novak Djokovic, the 2014 U.S. Open was clearing the path for Federer’s return to Grand Slam supremacy. And then Marin Cilic happened.
Kei Nishikori will play Marin Cilic for this year's US open men's singles title. It has been 38 majors and nearly a decade since a Grand Slam final failed to include at least one of the Big Four -- Djokovic, Federer, Rafael Nadal, or Andy Murray. That last occurred when Marat Safin beat Lleyton Hewitt at the 2005 Australian Open
Andy Murray felt he came up short in a stamina test after Novak Djokovic knocked him out of the US Open at the quarter-final stage.World number one Djokovic won 7-6 (7-1) 6-7 (1-7) 6-2 6-4 at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday to end Murray's hopes of claiming the grand slam event for a second time. Murray made the top seed work for his place in the last four, but the British number one was left to admit that the Serb had a physical edge over him. "I would say physically he was fresher towards the end," Murray said. "I tried to hang in as best I could in the fourth set. He was definitely, well he appeared fresher than me. Whether he was or not I don't know. "Maybe he does a better job at hiding it than me. The pace of my serve slowed significantly towards the end of the third set. "In matches when you play against him or anyone at that level there is going to be periods in the match when they are going to play better, your level is going to drop a little bit. "It happened to him a couple of time in the first . ...
US Open: Djokovic, Murray, Serena sail on Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray stayed on course for a mouth-watering US Open quarter-final showdown as five-time women’s champion Serena Williams stood alone as America’s last singles title hope, AFP reports. But as the heavyweights of the sport eased into the fourth round, the women’s draw was blown open again when Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova became the fifth top 10 seed to exit in the first week. Kvitova’s misery was shared by American tennis after John Isner and Sam Querrey were both knocked out in the third round leaving the hosts still without a men’s Grand Slam champion since Andy Roddick triumphed in New York in 2003. Djokovic, the 2011 champion, brushed aside Querrey for the eighth time in nine meetings, with a 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 win taking the world number one into the fourth round at a major for the 22nd consecutive time. “Sam is big server, very powerful. But he doesn’t move that well so I wanted to keep him moving around the court, mix up ...

Andy Murray may have mis-stepped, but one fellow Brit's march of Grand Slam glory continuesIt was a great Wimbledon.
Novak Djokovic became the winner of this year’s Wimbledon Men’s singles competition on Sunday, defeating Roger Federer, who has won the title an astounding seven times. In 2013, Djokovic lost in the final at Wimbledon to Andy Murray, who was hoped to become first British men’s winner in 77 years. Djokovic lost his year’s U.S. Open and French Open to Rafael Nadal. Related: Wimbeldon Stars Novak Djokovic And Grigor Dimitrov Do Striptease “The most special Grand Slam final I’ve played,” the 27-year-old Serbian said. “At the time in my career, for this Grand Slam trophy to arrive is crucial, especially after losing several Grand Slam finals in a row. I started doubting, of course, a little bit. I needed this win a lot.” As he did when he won in 2011, Djokovic plucked grass from the court and ate it. “It tastes like the best meal I ever had in my life,” he said. Federer, a fierce competitor, was gracious in his defeat. “Winning or losing, it’s always something special and something yo ...
In the last 11 years, there have been 44 men's Grand Slam tennis championships. 23 of them have been won by Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Today, one of them will win Wimbledon. And in that time, only four men have won at Wimbledon- these two and Rafael Nadal and last year's champ Andy Murray.
Roger Federer proved he can still "outrun time" and reclaim his grass-court empire by beating Milos Raonic to reach his ninth Wimbledon final. The 32-year-old dismissed Raonic 6-4 6-4 6-4 in today's semi-final, dispelling the Canadian challenger's prediction his All England Club era could come to a close. Federer will now face top seed Novak Djokovic in Sunday's final, where he can claim a record eighth title. Canada's eighth seed Raonic talked passionately about the challenge of dislodging tennis' top four in the build-up to his first grand slam semi-final. The 23-year-old believes the new wave of men's talent is finally ready to loosen the decade-long stranglehold enjoyed by Federer, Rafa Nadal, Andy Murray and Djokovic. Raonic claimed no one can "outrun time" and delay the inevitable passing of eras after his quarter-final victory over Nick Kyrgios - but even after 17 grand slam victories, Federer still has other ideas. Djokovic quietened the clamour of Queen's Club champion Grigor Dimitrov to reach hi ...
Tennis | Wimbledon FEDERER LEADING 2-0 VS RAONIC, 2-2 THIRD SET Kevin Anderson writes Djokovic downs Dimitrov in four-set thriller 04 July 2014, 17:30 Top seed Novak Djokovic halted the grasscourt charge of talented Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov on Friday, beating the 11th seed 6-4 3-6 7-6(2) 7-6(7) in an exhilarating see-saw contest to reach the Wimbledon final. The six-time Grand Slam champion had to draw on all the experience gleaned in 23 Grand Slam semifinals to get the better of 23-year-old Dimitrov. The Bulgarian was on a roll after winning the pre-Wimbledon tournament at Queen's Club and downing third-seeded champion Andy Murray in the quarterfinals. Both players slipped and slid along the dusty Centre Court baselines, frequently losing their footing. But it was Djokovic who found the extra grit to prevail, saving a set point in the ninth game of the fourth set and three in the tiebreak before taking the match with a cross-court forehand winner.

Last year's Wimbledon was the most unpredictable in memory. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova - owners of a combined 10 titles at the All England Club - were all gone by the end of the second round. Five-time champion Serena Williams left in the fourth. Add in the record-equaling withdrawals or mid-match retirements because of health problems. And to cap it all, Andy Murray finally gave Britain the men's champion it had wanted for more than three-quarters of a century. What might 2014 have in store? Here are five things to watch at Wimbledon, where play begins Monday: 'MURRESMO': The pairing of Murray and his new coach, Amelie Mauresmo, was quickly dubbed ''Murresmo,'' and their partnership is sure to draw a lot of notice. For one thing, Murray won the grass-court Grand Slam tournament - the first British man in 77 years to do so - with Ivan Lendl in his corner a year ago. For another, it's unusual for a top male tennis player to be coached by a woman. But Murray was coached for years by his ...
Can't believe that it's time for my favourite Grand Slam of the year again! It was only like yesterday we saw Murray with all his emotions unleashed at Wimbledon and now, this year, here we are again! As RF friend Cynthia Lo was quoting, somehow the Number 8 seems to be the main feature with Roger this time around, 18th Grand Slam beckons, 80th title is next and 8th Wimby title is in sight and after that not to forget his birthday on the 8th day of the 8th month! Anyway, with all the predictions and first day previews, we hope that Roger will be totally focused here and feeling right at home again back on grass with no injury woes. Let's go ROGER! It is no longer 77 years since a British man won the Gentlemen’s Singles title at The Championships. Andy Murray’s enthralling victory on this court last year will live long in the memories of all those who witnessed it. And who’s to say that the Scot cannot successfully defend his title just as Fred Perry did in 1935 and ’36? Murray said that when he .. ...
Former world's no.1 Roger Federer might be playing throughout the Wimbledon Open with bandage on his hand after he accidentally stabbed it while playing with his four-year old twins, the 7-time Wimbledon Open champion revealed on Friday. The 33-year old Federer is gunning for a record-setting eighth championship at All-England Tennis Club, but the latest injury could be a factor in his quest to become a Grand Slam winner again. "You know what happened? I was playing in the woods with the girls and I stabbed a stick in my hand," said Federer in an interview with the London Evening Standards on Friday. Still, everything appears to be okay with Federer as he had a fine practice session with fellow Wimbly champion Lleyton Hewitt. "But the bad news for Andy Murray and the others in the running to win this year's tournament, which starts on Monday, is that Federer's injury is unlikely to hinder his performance. He was in good spirits during the match, laughing and joking with his Australian rival. Coach Stefan ...
Gentleman's Wimbledon 2014 singles and doubles seeds as well as seeding formula used by Wimbledon. Djokovic Named Top Seed For Wimbledon, Defending Champion Murray Third Seed Wimbledon, England by ATP Staff Novak Djokovic , the 2011 titlist, has been named top seed for The Championships on Wednesday. Rafael Nadal , who clinched his 14th Grand Slam championship at Roland Garros two weeks ago and is currently No. 1 in the Emirates ATP Rankings, is No. 2 seed. Nadal's seeding was influenced by his first-round loss to Steve Darcis at Wimbledon last year and his opening-round exit to Dustin Brown at the Gerry Weber Open last week. Defending champion Andy Murray is third seed, while fourth seed Roger Federer is aiming to capture his eighth Wimbledon title. Stan Wawrinka, this year's Australian Open champion, has been named the No. 5 seed. It means that Wawrinka could meet Djokovic, Nadal or Murray in the quarter-finals.

Roger Federer's 5 Most Unbreakable Records Federer has regained his spot at the top of the world rankings and now has the all-time record for most weeks at the top. No one knows how many more weeks he will spend there before finally passing on the reins for good. Those reins may go to Nadal, Djokovic or even Andy Murray, who made an impressive showing However, some of the records Roger is leaving behind will never be broken by any of his successors. Five such records in particular are unlike anything else accomplished in the sport of tennis It is a testament to Federer's consistency and longevity that his all-time record of 17 Grand Slam wins is fifth on this list. His Grand Slam wins record is often viewed as the most important to the game and the one that sets him apart as the greatest of all time. While this is true, it is not his most dominant record.

Federer, the 17 time major winner, next faces Gulbis who reached the last 16 for the first time since 2008. “It was tough to lose the second set but nice to win the match,” said 32-year-old Federer, who is contesting his 58th straight Grand Slam. “It was not a straightforward win. I knew Dmitry would try different things, take big cuts at the ball but I am pleased to have played solid.” Gulbis, the 18th seed, won a fractious third round clash against 35-year-old Czech veteran Radek Stepanek 6-3 6-2 7-5 in the Court One bullring, firing 19 aces and 45 winners. Twelve months ago, Gulbis caused controversy when he described the sport’s Big Four of Federer, Rafael Nadal, Djokovic and Andy Murray as “boring”. He especially pointed the finger at Federer, claiming that post-match interviews were becoming so polite and inoffensive that the fire in the belly of the sport was being doused. On Friday, Gulbis turned his fire on women in tennis, claiming the sport is no place for female players. “A wom ...

Federer out to continue revival 23 February By Richard Eaton Dubai – Roger Federer's performance in reaching the semi-final of the Australian Open last month is the first step in a mini-revival of tennis' great legend. This week could see the second. That is the scenario Federer intends pursuing when he returns to the ATP Tour and tries to win back the title at his adopted second home at the Dubai Open. Victories over Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in Melbourne will be followed by a chance to challenge Novak Djokovic, the top-seeded titleholder, here. Although the formidable Serb is seeking a record fifth Dubai title, Federer has a better record against Djokovic than against Rafael Nadal, the man who halted him last month, and he feels encouraged by his performances in the first Grand Slam of the year. “I think it has been a very good start to the season for me overall, “ Federer said. “I have played some really good tennis. I still feel my best tennis is ahead of me right now. “So I'm looki ...
A versatile player, Novak Djokovic has won six Grand Slam titles, including three in a superlative 2011 season that saw him capture 10 tournament titles overall, post an ATP-best 70-6 record and seize the No. 1 ranking. In 2012, The world No. 1 added to his legacy in fighting back from a 2-4 fifth-set deficit to defeat Rafal Nadal, 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-7 (5), 7-5, and capture his third Australian Open championship in the longest Grand Slam final in history — a five hour, 53-minute epic. It was Djokovic's seventh straight win over Nadal and came after his five-set triumph over Andy Murray in the semifinals, marking the first time he had won back-to-back five-set matches. Djokovic became the fifth man in the Open Era to win three straight majors, joining Nadal, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras and Rod Laver.  The top-seeded Serbian beat Andy Murray, 6-1, 7-6, to collect his third career Miami title without surrendering a set. It was Djokovic's 30th career title, including his 11th Masters crown, tying him with Pe ...

Murray moved smoothly past Spain's Feliciano Lopez and Maria Sharapova came through a test against French challenger Alize Cornet before reaching the fourth round. In the evening session, Azarenka showed little mercy to unseeded Austrian Yvonne Meusburger, winning 6-1, 6-0 to set up a rematch with Sloane Stephens after their controversial semi-final last year.

Andy Murray targets Grand Slam victories on return
Rafael Nadal has no intention of joining the dizzying coaching merry-go-round which has seen Novak Djokovic hire Boris Becker in just one of a raft of changes ahead of the 2014 season. World number one Nadal has been coached by his Uncle Toni since childhood and it`s a partnership which has brought 13 Grand Slam titles. Djokovic, meanwhile, stunned the sport by hiring Becker, one of a host of former Grand Slam winners from the 1980s and 1990s to be handed new leases of life over the winter. Roger Federer has been hitting with Stefan Edberg, Richard Gasquet has taken on Sergi Bruguera, Marin Cilic has renewed his partnership with Goran Ivanisevic while Kei Nishikori signed up Michael Chang. Undoubtedly, they were moves inspired by Andy Murray`s success with Ivan Lendl which has yielded the 2012 US Open title and 2013 Wimbledon triumph. "It is great to have a great champion in tour games as they bring great charisma to the game. It will be great to have Ivan and Boris around this season. It is a good thing ...

Andy Murray: 'I may not win another Grand Slam'
The great Scot Andy Murray has 2 b another - pasted 4 no Grand Slam success & won Wimbledon with big expectation. Big yr 4 him.
TENNIS Andy Murray can be competitive immediately at next month's Australian Open if he has fully recovered from back surgery, says John Mcenroe. The Briton had surgery in September and has not played competitively since. "If he's healthy, he is going to be one of the guys who can go the distance [in Australia]," said seven-time Grand Slam champion McEnroe. But Tim Henman said Murray must "remain patient" and not rush his comeback if he wants to be a force in 2014. The first Grand Slam of 2014 starts in Australia on 13 January. Murray's lingering back problem forced him to miss the French Open in May, but he recovered to become the first Briton to win the Wimbledon Men's singles title since Fred Perry in 1936. In September, his defence of his US Open title ended in the quarter-finals, but he went on to enjoy success with his GB Davis Cup team-mates, who secured their place in the 2014 World Group. Murray, 26, then underwent surgery and missed the recent ATP World Tour Finals in London as he recovered. McE ...
TENNIS ANYONE!!! The key to Andy Murray's success: Hot Yoga! Whatever the outcome in Melbourne this morning, Andy Murray can rest assured that he is one of the world's hottest players. And thanks to the remarkable new training programme that helped to turn him into a Grand Slam champion, this is as true off the court as on it. The world No 3 has credited his decision to practise yoga in temperatures of 40C and above for much of his improved performance. He believes the sweaty workout has transformed him both physically and mentally, helping him to compete at the very highest levels. Murray has said of Hot Yoga, the sequence to complete, that: "Until you do it you can't comment on how difficult it is. It's tough. It's also effective, as his win last September in New York over today's rival, Novak Djokovic, showed. The 25-year-old from Dunblane started practicing Hot Yoga five years ago on the advice of his conditioning coach, Matt Little. A number of tennis players have since followed him into the hot stud ...

Six-time Grand Slam champion Stefan Edberg backs Andy Murray's decision to opt for a back surgery and believes that the timing of the surgery comes at the right time of the season. Edberg said: "If there is a good time to be having a surgery, now is probably as good a time as ever. All of the Grand Slam tournaments are over for the year and although it's a shame that he will probably not be able to play at the 02 Arena, he will have enough time to get ready for next year, and he can have a proper break and come back feeling fresh."
1 Grand Slam = 4 consecutive Majors. Andy Murray has not won 2 slams; he has won 2 majors. Sports reporters take note.

GREAT TO WATCH Wow! Wawrinka! It looked liked Andy Murray was playing the Ivan Lendl of old. Stanislas put on a great display of all court tennis. Taking the ball on the rise, serving and volleying as well as playing first strike tennis off of Murray's second serve. It was not that much of an upset. It was beating in the world. TV crews have to give more credit to all the players. Despite losing their chance to play for the calendar Grand Slam the Bryan brothers handled themselves like classy champions. Signing autographs after they lost. Then doing extra TV interviews. Leander Paes and Radek Stapanek play doubles the way it is supposed to be played. So, do the Bryan brothers. Forward always forward. In 1990 Paes won the junior doubles at Wimbledon with South Africa's John Laffnie de Jager. At the time John was living and training with us in Tyler, Texas. The connection always reminds me of how long Leander Paes has been playing world class doubles. Just let's you know how fundamentals stand the test of t ...

Had to copy this. Not checked the validity of any of it, but it looks fun all the same! WAS IT IS ALL ABOUT SEVEN. Andy Murray's win at Wimbledon on Sunday looks to be influenced heavily with the number seven. He won on the 7th day of the 7th month. Murray was playing in his seventh Grand Slam final. He broke world No 1 Novak Djokovic's serve seven times. He was born in 1987, seven days before Djokovic Murray is the first Scot to win a Wimbledon singles title since Harold Mahoney, 117 years ago. Murray won Britain's first male Wimbledon title after 77 years. Virginia Wade won the women's title in, 1977. Victoria Beckham, who was there with David called her daughter Harper Seven, with seven also being David's lucky number. I am sure that among the thousands of fans there that seven has a meaning for them too.
7 is new lucky new number for Andy Murray. Why? He is a british who has won Wimbledon after 77 years, Murray played his 7th Grand Slam final on July 7, Broke Novak Djokovic's serve 7 times and he was born 7 days before Djokovic in 1987.
LONDON – Andy Murray said Monday he was determined to push on from his historic Wimbledon win and add further Grand Slam titles to his achievements.
This is a little late but I've been looking at my predictions from the beginning of the year for the Grand Slam championships this year and they've been surprisingly accurate.   2013 Australian Open: Novak Djokovic defeats Andy Murray. (Correct)   2013 French Open: Rafael Nadal defeats Roger Federer. (Correct champion, incorrect runner up)   2013 Wimbledon: Andy Murray defeats Novak Djokovic. (Correct)   2013 US Open: Andy Murray defeats Juan Martin Del Potro. (???)   I also predicted the year end top four players would be as such: 1. Novak Djokovic 2. Andy Murray 3. Roger Federer 4. Rafael Nadal   So so far I've been pretty accurate with the mistake of the French Open runner up being David Ferrer instead of Federer and it seems very unlikely Federer will make it back up to three before the year ends but I'm pretty proud of the Australian Open and Wimbledon predictions. My next prediction is that the World Tour Finals will be a close match between Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic which Murray will win ...

from BBC Sports Stefan Edberg interviewed by Sky Sports in Wimbledon 2013 Wimbledon champion Andy Murray is still improving and can triumph at his home Grand Slam again, according to two-time winner Stefan Edberg. The 47-year-old also thinks Bri
Ok so it was 77 years since a British person won Wimbledon, on the seventh day of the seventh month Andy Murray won Wimbledon stopping Novak Djokovic winning his seventh Grand Slam title so it would seem appropriate to have seven songs for Andy. There will also be songs by The Eels, The Windows, The Bee Gees and Mink Deville. Join me tomorrow at 6 pm for another Sound & Vision evening.
Ivan Lendl was one of the best players of tennis in modern times. He won all the grand slam many times over except, possibly the best in business, Wimbledon. But, he could mentor Andy Murray to break the dry run for a British player after a long 77 years. Talk of Leadership doing unbelievable things!!!
Andy Murray won the men's final at Wimbledon on Sunday and you've probably heard that he is the first Brit to win the Grand Slam tournament in 77 years. NOT TRUE. Four British women have been Wimbledon champions since 1936: Dorothy Round Little, Angela Mortimer Barrett, Ann Haydon-Jones and Virginia Wade. Why are women’s achievements in sports still not equally valued to men’s??
Andy Murray may be the worst mens champion ever at Wimbledon, his win is courtesy of the Choker. Ok, Nadal, Federer and Murray, 3 guys with no personalities. Mens tennis is a joke, nobody serves and volleys, no charisma, unwatchable. The Choker is Andre Agassi without a French Title, 2 guys gifted at blowing majors. I mean losing to Andres Gomez and Andy Murray in slam finals. At least we have the Bryan Bros, 15 majors, most in history and currently holding all titles, not done in Open Era. Really, only story at US Open, if they can win a calendar Grand Slam. Womens tennis, no comment, except, the grunting is pathetic and I cant watch the Williams, Sharapova, ect, the only one who doesnt grunt and who is really cute is Carolyn Wisacki. Done talking tennis.

Andy Murray is my best tennis man! I love my boy! I can watch him play tennis forever .:D Novak Djokovic who! lol!
Quote of the week and it's only Monday! "Andy Murray is not world class" That's the same Andy Murray that is world number two, holder of two grand slam titles at the moment and beat the world number one in straight sets yesterday, yep the same guy ;)
Following what he went through in the Dunblane terrorist attack, Andy Murray won his first Grand-slam the US Open last year on September 11th and won Wimbledon on 7/7. Weird
What did you think of Andy Murray's victory at Wimbledon? Who will be the next male player to break the American Grand Slam Champion drought?

Tim Henman is probably earning more money as a BBC 'tennis pundit' than he ever did as a player. So when, on Sunday morning, he was asked how Andy Murray might have slept on the Saturday night before his final, he waffled on about always sleeping like a baby. No, Tiger Tim. What you should have said was: "I don't know why you are asking me, Gary, I never made a Grand Slam final."
For those of you who know absolutely nothing about sport Andy Murray had not just won 1 competition Its actually 28 including 2 Grand Slam titles (US and Wimbledon) and he is the current Olympic champion.
Andy Murray: A Legend? No. Roger Federer- 17 Grand Slam Titles Pete Sampras- 14 Grand Slam Titles Rafael Nadal- 12 Grand Slam titles Andre Agassi- 7 Grand Slam titles and an Olympic Gold medal. Not to mention: William Renshaw, Richard Sears, John Mcenroe, Jimmy Conors, Gustavo Kuerten- 3 French Open titles, Rod Laver and Roy Emerson and Boris Becker. Novak Djokovic has six majors including four Australian Open titles. Andy Murray may have ended the drought, but he played a painful, sad and pathetic final. I expected a five-set match and felt cheated that it was over in three. I hate matches that are over in three. Djokovic had an off day and he wasn't in the match. I expected more from the final. I wanted Djokovic to win and I'm still upset that he lost. I have no interest in singing the praises of a man who was nothing more than lucky.
Some things really puzzle me several tennis players win multiple Grand Slams and get no recognition yet just because Andy Murray wins Wimbledon he is worthy of a knighthood I think its totally pathetic, Virginia Wade won the Wimbledon title in 1977 and she was never made a Dame so what is the difference. Serena Williams & Venus Williams have won 5 Wimbledon titles, Rafael Nadal has won 2 Wimbledon titles, Roger Federer has won 7 Wimbledon titles, Maria Sharapova has won 1 Wimbledon title and do they get any recognition just for winning Wimbledon no they do not. If anyone should be knighted it should be soldiers in the army who do a far more important job fighting for their country and risk their lives on a daily basis. Andy Murray stands on a tennis court hitting a ball from one side to the other and gets paid millions just for doing that its totally out of order. Serena Williams has won 16 Grand Slams in Singles, 13 Grand Slams in Doubles, 2 Grand Slams in Mixed Doubles and 4 Olympic Gold Medals (1 in Si ...
Will someone please explain to me how one goes about getting a Knighthood? Because David Cameron thinks Andy Murray deserves one but all he did was win a game of Tennis.
Andy Murray was the first Brit to win in 77 years and the date he won 7th of the 7th :) x
Great documentary on Andy Murray on BBC one tonight, the man behind the racquet. Totally deserved Wimbledon, hope its a platform for one grand slam glory now!
Andy Murray has just said exactly what i was thinkin.
Andy Murray has a guilty conscience. The reason why he gave all the money away is because he didn't win wimbledon fairly. Tennis along wiv many sports is corrupt and the winner was chosen last year. Federer won last year and Murray was told to settle for an Olympic Gold medal which he won a few weeks later against the same player on the same court with the plan already made and possibly paid off for him to win Wimbledon this year! After the match yesterday in which the number 1 ranked player in the world didnt even win a set Murray didnt even crack a smile in joy or celebrate the win the way most people who just achieved there greatest goal would. Instead he walked around and even looked embarrassed. Wat do u guys think
Serious question, you accountants out there- Suppose (fro the sake of this) that Andy Murray won a million quid for winning Wimbledon. After paying Lendl ( who doesn't come cheap) his fitness coach, tennis coach and cook, not to mention masseur - plus income tax and Nataional insurance, how much does he actually stuff in his wallet?

I want to throw out a big congratulations to Andy Murray for his great Wimbledon victory! The first Brit to win since Fred Perry won in 1936. Also congratulations to my golfing pal, Ivan Lendl who has now been on board for both of Andy's Grand Slam victories. I must say, though 'i'm feeling old--i knew Fred Perry! LOL!!!

Congratulations to Andy Murray on winning the Wimbledon Gentleman's Championship yesterday; the first Brit to win that honor since 1936. Dad and I played a little tennis when I was a kid and we watched many many Grand Slam tournaments over the years. The past few years we spent considerable time speculating about Murray and whether he would rise to the top of the tennis world. Ted would be really happy with yesterday's results!

Novak Djokovic takes on Andy Murray in their fourth meeting in a Grand Slam final.
He led Andy Murray to Wimbledon glory, now eight-time Grand Slam winner and former world number one Ivan Lendl talks about his career and explains why nerves aren't all bad.
I might be wrong in choosing Lisicki to be the women's Wimbledon ladies' champion, but I made up for choosing right Andy Murray as the men's champion! Question is, was that really Djokovic we watched in the finals? Losing 3 straight sets to Murray? We saw him at work against Del Potro, and this time with Murray seem to be another person. It can be said that Djokovic did a Lisicki in the finals! Great Britain must be ecstatic, to finally have a champion in their own Grand Slam tourney since 1936, a very long time ago. It won't be long till we hear the name Sir Andy Murray, I'm quite sure he will be conferred the title of nobility for giving glory back to his homeland. I just hope it was not a sell out game that we watched, everything is possible, but in the meantime, I'm happy for Andy, and I'm happy for the brits! Congratulations!
Amazing he has done it Andy Murray has won Wimbledon Will surely now be knighted and made Sports Personality of Year Laura Robson done it again after reaching 4th round Murray has went and won the Grand Slam unbelievable

We want to know where you'll be watching the game from and who you'll be watching it with? In as much detail as possible tell us who you're rooting for and where exactly you'll be watching it?

Wimbledon Djokovic, Murray and Serena lead unfamiliar cast Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and Serena Williams will head a cast of fresh-faced hopefuls on Monday as Wimbledon heads into the second week which will be a Federer-free zone for the first time in 11 years. A second week which had promised back-to-back blockbuster matches after Murray, seven-times champion Roger Federer and 2008 and 2010 winner Rafa Nadal had been thrown together in the same half of the draw, will instead have a distinctly unfamiliar look to it following an unforgettable week of shocks. Gone are Federer, Nadal, Maria Sharapova and Victoria Azarenka - all former world number ones, all Grand Slam champions and who between them own 35 Major trophies. Instead, the second week line-up includes an array of characters who had turned up at the All England Club expecting to play a supporting role but have been thrust into the limelight of a last-16 appearance. French duo Kenny de Schepper and Adrian Mannarino, Poland's Jerzy Janowicz, Italy' ...
Tennis - Wimbledon Anything is possible for Murray and Robson (but it will probably be Djokovic and Serena) And so we reach the second week of Wimbledon with two nearby residents still in contention. Andy Murray and Laura Robson have survived the standard bonfire of the Brits to make it to the fourth round: it is the first time since 1998 the home nation can boast such an enlarged representation. Never mind that half the pair was born in Melbourne - it is enough to give Sue Barker a nose bleed. What’s more, in this most bizarre and unprecedented Championship, it is possible the duo could progress together further. Far be it from me to risk a prediction after suggesting that Roger Federer was nailed on for the title barely hours before he was knocked out, but you never know. In terms of seeds falling in the early stages, this is the most reputation-strewn Grand Slam in history. Of the top ten men’s and women’s seeds, only half made it to the third round. It has been carnage. And this is the golden ru ...

EXCELLENT research by our pal, Chuck Culpepper on Federer's loss at the big "W on Wacky Wednesday. CHUCK CULPEPPER June 27, 2013 GRAND DEFEAT FOR FEDERER  Seven-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer lost in the second round to 116th-ranked Sergiy Stakhovsky, his earliest Grand Slam exit in a decade. (Getty Images) The long, long, long, long run began six days after the P-P-P-Pistons finished clobbering the Lakers for the NBA title, 14 days after the Stanley Cup went to the Tampa Bay Lightning, one day after Retief Goosen won his second U.S. Open as the golfers groused about the bowling alleys of Shinnecock Hills. It began while the top 10 of men's tennis included present-day retirees Andre Agassi, Tim Henman, Carlos Moya, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Guillermo Coria, Rainer Schuettler and Andy Roddick. A promising young Rafael Nadal held down No. 46. An even younger Novak Djokovic stood at No. 327. Andy Murray held down No. 535. It began so long ago that as Roger Federer began his pre-Wimbledon press confer ...

Nadal puts the gentleman in gentlemen's singles LONDON (Reuters) - For Rafael Nadal dignity in defeat is a deeply held belief and, along with his arch rivals, the Spaniard has put the gentleman back into the gentlemen's singles at Wimbledon. Compare that with the catfight that broke out between Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova in the lead-up to the world's most famous tennis tournament. Nadal, who tumbled out of the championships in a straight sets defeat by Belgian journeyman Steve Darcis on the opening day, declined to blame his wounded knee despite persistent questioning at the post-match news conference. He doesn't do excuses. The Spaniard, like Roger Federer, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic, is a great believer in mutual respect. The leading quartet on the men's circuit do not indulge in slanging matches. That prompted Latvian player Ernests Gulbis to complain in an interview with French newspaper L'Equipe last month that: "Tennis today badly lacks characters... all four of them are boring players. ...
Last Monday, the Wimbledon started at the fabled All England Lawn Tennis Club in London, England. This is the 3rd Grand Slam event for both the ATP/WTA and will run until July 7. For Wednesday, the second round action begins at the Centre Court with featured matches on both the men's and single's event. Second seed Victoria Azarenka will face Italy's Flavia Pennetta while third seed Roger Federer will go up against Ukraine's Sergiy Stakhovsky. Great Britain's hero Andy Murray would also have a match on this day. He will face Taipei's Yen-Hsun Lu at the No. 1 Court. Crowd darling and third seed Maria Sharapova will also play on Wednesday and face Portugal's Michelle Larcher De Brito. The sportsbook handicappers have installed Novak Djokovic and Serena Williams as the favorites to win the Wimbledon title in their respective events.

Sir Alex Ferguson says watching Andy Murray gets him going more than Manchester United ever did. Fergie saw Murray lose last year’s Wimbledon final to Roger Federer. But he was also there when fellow Scot Murray claimed his first Grand Slam title at the US Open. The recently retired United boss said: “Watching Andy, I get more worked up, more emotionally involved than with my own team. For any sportsman, it requires more than ability. It requires that inner belief, a passion and desire to get over the line. “I was at the Wimbledon final. Until they put the roof up, I thought he’d do it. ” Fergie and fellow Scot knight Sean Connery then gatecrashed Murray’s Press conference after he beat Novak Djokovic to win the US Open. He said: “We just went in. It was so funny.” (Source: The Sun) {MG14}

Nadal seeded fifth at Wimbledon Wimbledon, England (Sports Network) - Even though he's the hottest player in men's tennis, reigning French Open champion and two-time Wimbledon titlist Rafael Nadal received only the No. 5 seed at Wimbledon 2013, which will commence Monday at the All England Club. Nadal's fifth seeding means he could meet top-seeded Australian Open champion Novak Djokovic, last year's Wimbledon runner-up and second seed Andy Murray or reigning champ and third seed Roger Federer as early as the quarterfinals at the world's only grass-court Grand Slam event.
Good little piece by John Inverdale by John Inverdale June 3, 2013, 2:42am THERE is something intrinsically rather dull about sporting governing bodies. They exist, they govern, they succeed or they don’t, and if they don’t, they carry on governing come what may. So as the interview process continues for the new head of the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), demonstrations demanding a dynamic, vibrant change of direction in the way the sport is run, have not surprisingly been conspicuous by their absence outside the House of Commons. Some bloke (probably) will get it, and so long as Andy Murray hangs around, he can paper over the cracks. To be in France at the moment for the second Grand Slam event of the year, is to witness a kind of tennis nirvana that Britain can only dream of. Every day, French players in big matches on show courts. Twenty nine in the two singles competitions, not by dint of wild card hand-outs but on merit. In Murray’s absence, Britain had not a single player in the men’s draw fo ...
Not the Usual Suspects The Big Four, consisting of Andy Murray, Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal, have been almost unbreakable in the past five years when it comes to who will appear in any Grand Slam semi-final. But, with Murray's withdrawal from the event and Federer's loss in the quarterfinals to Tsonga, the potential opponent in the final (for Novak Djokovic or Rafael Nadal) will either be Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga or Spaniard David Ferrer. This will mark the first time a player outside of the Big Four will play in a Major final since Tomas Berdych faced Rafael Nadal at the end of the 2010 Wimbledon fortnight. Surely the odds will not be in Tsonga or Ferrer's favor, but they have made it this far and would only need to pull off one more upset to win. The Frenchman lost in his only previous Major final to Novak Djokovic at the 2008 Australian Open while Ferrer has never reached the championship match before.
Grigor Dimitrov has long been lauded as one of the up-and-coming players to watch on the ATP Tour, with the young Bulgarian being both cursed and praised with a comparison, first made several years ago, of his game with that of the great Roger Federer’s. Such a comparison, whilst of course flattering, brings with it a whole heap of pressure and for several years it seemed as though Dimitrov was struggling to live up to the lofty expectations that others had placed on him. This year, however, has seen Dimitrov finally break out of his shell and start performing like a rising star. A finals appearance in Brisbane, where he lost a hard-fought match against Andy Murray, was followed with a stunning upset of world number one Novak Djokovic at the Madrid Masters and now at Roland Garros the 22 year old has made his first ever third round at a Grand Slam. Dimitrov also pushed Nadal to 3 sets at Monte Carlo, which is not an easy thing to do at one of the Spaniard’s favourite stomping grounds. Today’s remat ...

"Do I believe I can win? The answer is yes." Olympian, Grand Slam winner and Wimbledon hope covers GQ
PARIS (AP) -- A look at 10 of the top topics at the French Open, the clay-court Grand Slam tennis tournament that begins Sunday and ends June 9: 1. WHY STOP AT SEVEN? Rafael Nadal already owns a record seven French Open titles - he broke a tie with Bjorn Borg by winning last year - and is widely considered the favorite to add No. 8. He is 36-2 this season, reaching the finals of all eight tournaments he's entered, winning six. And he's as good as it gets on red clay. 2. IF HE'S SO GOOD, WHY WASN'T NADAL SEEDED NO. 1? After a surprising second-round loss at Wimbledon last year, Nadal was off the tour for a little more than seven months with a knee injury, missing the last two Grand Slam tournaments and every other event - and missing out on the ranking points they offer. So he slid down to a current ranking of No. 4, and is seeded No. 3 because of second-ranked Andy Murray's withdrawal. While the French Open would have been allowed to bump Nadal higher, it chose instead to stick to its policy of strictly a ...
Andy Murray's coach Ivan Lendl on Monday welcomed Rafael Nadal back from a long injury layoff, but said it was too early to judge whether the 11-time Grand Slam winner would be at his best.

As Dr. Eufemiano Fuentes finally comes to trial, in Spain, for doping offences in relation to sport, it is telling that only evidence related to cycling may be cited in court, despite irrefutable links with both professional football and tennis, to name but two. Any sport that would like its public to believe that it has no problem with doping is either kidding itself, or hoodwinking its fans, or both. As I watched Andy Murray struggle to overcome an open wound on the sole of his foot, whilst playing in the final of a Grand Slam tournament, at the weekend, I was reminded of the absurd pressures that we exert on these young athletes, to always perform, no matter what, in order to satisfy contractual and sponsorship obligations. Doping will exist in all sports, until we acknowledge that athletes are human beings, just like the rest of us, and treat them accordingly. I couldn't play tennis with a hole in my foot - could you?

The next great rivalry? -Novak Djokovic vs. Andy Murray may not be a network executive’s dream, and it may or may not be the future of men’s tennis. But it is the final that make sense here and now. By here, I mean on the medium-paced hard courts of Melbourne. By now, I mean now that these two junior rivals who were born a week apart have reached the ripe age of 25, and the peak of their powers. Djokovic and Murray will contest their second straight Grand Slam final, and their second Australian Open final in three years. They’re currently ranked No. 1 and No. 3, but could be 1-2 before long. They know each other well—They’ve already played 17 times as pros, seven times in 2012 alone. Djokovic leads 10-7 lifetime, and was 4-3 against Murray last year. They split their last two matches at Slams, each of which went five sets. So while you may miss Roger Federer and/or Rafael Nadal, this one should be competitive, as well as an exhibition of the best that tennis has to offer in the here and now. The ...

Andy Murray's into his 3rd straight Grand Slam final & 2nd v Novak Djokovic, who he beat in US Open.
Andy Murray has been a different player since the Summer Olympics. Under coach Ivan Lendl, he's improved tremendously earning him his first Grand Slam at US Open. And tonight after 4 hours at Melbourne Park, he prevailed over Roger Federer. Go Andy!
The time is now and the event place is at Rod Laver Arena where King Roger Federer is about playing the 3rd seed Andy Murray for a place in the finals of the very first Grand Slam of the year the Australian Opens.Game on
Tennis is a game of strategy. Like chess, you hit a shot here or there not to actually win the point, but set yourself up a few plays later to win the point. It's a mind game against your opponent that can bring out the best and worst in players that are struggling against their foes and against themselves. But we don't need this. Not what Victoria Azarenka did on Thursday at the Australian Open. Azarenka is the No. 1 player in the world. She won the 2012 Australian Open for her only Grand Slam title, and has gone through an almost Andy Murray-like turnaround in her career to become the player she is today. She's incredibly solid and intimidating to play and has plenty of talent to get past opponents no matter how talented they are. But her tactics against American Sloane Stephens in the semifinals just seemed dirty. Azarenka won the first set against Stephens handily on Thursday, beating the budding star 6-1 and putting her just a single set away from her second straight Aussie Open final. Her game looke ...

In Melbourne yesterday, Federer sliced and smashed and carved the ball with all his old elan. He could not quite polish off Jo-Wilfried Tsonga as quickly as he would have liked, but he kept the punches flying until this Muhammad Ali lookalike lay flat on the canvas. And tomorrow it will be a charged-up, inspired Federer who stands between Andy Murray and a third successive grand slam final. All the talk has been of the emerging Murray-Djokovic rivalry and how it has replaced Federer-Nadal as the biggest show in town. Yet Federer-Murray has also been pretty tasty of late. In 2012, they contested two finals on the lawns of Wimbledon in the space of four weeks – a claim that no other two players in tennis history can match. Murray might lead the overall head-to-head score by 10 wins to nine, but there is a glaring omission here. He has beaten Federer in America, in Asia, and in London. He has beaten Federer on grass courts, on hard courts, and on indoor courts. But the one thing he has never done is beat h ...

KBRAZ SPORTS Serena Williams frightened a few people, including herself. Defending champion Victoria Azarenka had a momentary lack of concentration. Two of the biggest names on the men's side at the Australian OpenRoger Federer and Andy Murray — had straight-set wins. Day 2 at Melbourne Park on Tuesday brought another day of perfect weather but a few anxious moments for Williams, who fell awkwardly on her right ankle in her 6-0, 6-0 win over No. 110-ranked Edina Gallovits-Hall. Williams had the ankle heavily taped by trainers and was able to continue and still dominate the Romanian player. Later, she said she hoped to continue playing — she'll have a scheduled day off Wednesday, returning Thursday to play her second-round match — and maintain her quest of winning her third Grand Slam tournament in a row and sixth Australian Open. "I think I was really, really close to panicking because a very similar thing happened to me last year, almost on the same side, the same shot," Williams said. "I just ...

Rafael Nadal says Andy Murray fully deserves to be a Grand Slam champion
11-time Grand Slam champion Rafael Nadal is expecting to play his first match against his rival World No. 3 Andy Murray
Bradley Wiggins won the Sports Personality of the Year Award last night. It was always going to be tough to know who deserved it in this particular year. Jessica Ennis was second and Andy Murray got third place - after an Olympic Gold and the first Grand Slam win by a British man in more than 70 years. Mo Farah and the Paralympians Sarah Storey and David Weir didn't make it into the top three. So who would you have given the title to and why?
In what must be one of the toughest set of finalists ever, the BBC Sports Personality of the Year contenders have been released, including three cyclists. Sir Chris Hoy, Sarah Storey and Bradley Wiggins have all made the shortlist, which also includes Andy Murray, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis, Katherine Grainer, David Weir, Ellie Simmonds, Nicola Adams and Ben Ainslie. That shortlist not only avoids the controversy of last year's male-slanted set, but is widely considered to be the strongest line-up yet. Andy Murray's winning of a Grand Slam sets him apart from every other British Tennis player since the 1930s. The favourite to win – as he has been for much of the year – is Bradley Wiggins, not least for his Tour De France triumph where he became the first Brit ever to win the (almost) century old race. The winner will be revealed on the evening of Sunday December 16th. Speaking to BikeBiz at the launch of his bike brand yesterday, Sir Chris Hoy revealed he wouldn't be able to attend the ceremony due to pr ...
Ivan Lendl has coached Andy Murray to Olympic Gold and the US Open title, ending Britain's 76-year wait for a men's Grand Slam singles win, but he said it would be tough in January with the world's top four all expected to be in action.
HONG KONG, Nov 21 (Reuters) - Ivan Lendl threw up his own Iron Curtain on Wednesday when reporters probed about the state of Andy Murray's mind and his game as Britain's newly minted Grand Slam champion switches his focus to the Australian Open. "I never get into the details of his game with anyone because it not necessary for anyone other than Andy to know," the Czech-born Lendl said in familiar taciturn style. The former world number one - now a U.S. citizen - steered Murray to the U.S. Open crown in September, ending Britain's wait for a men's grand slam singles champion which had stretched back to 1936. Like Murray, Lendl lost the first four grand slam finals he contested but then went on to win eight, failing only at Wimbledon. Now Britain's barren spell is broken, many expect Murray to emulate his coach and win several more, but Lendl cautioned it would be far from easy. "Well obviously that is the goal," he said when asked if Murray could win in Melbourne. "But tennis is very difficult at the momen ...
okay, it'd be like describing Andy Murray as Olympic Gold medalist rather than US Open winner - Grand Slam > Olympic Medal

Grand Slam champion Andy Murray receives a hero's welcome from thousands of fans on a Triumphant Return to his home town
Despite that, I want Andy Murray to get it. Gold Medal, grand slam and now world number 3. Brilliant year.
So who is your Sports Personality of the year ? this is how I have mine. 4 Bradley Wiggins, 3 Andy Murray, 2 Mo Farah and 1 Jessica Ennis. This is how I judge who deserves it more, 1 what type of expectations was on them, 2 the pressure they faced and 3 what they accomplished. Bradley Wiggins was amazing first ever British Tour De France winner and first British Gold Medallist at this years games I have him 4th here, 3 Andy Murray First British winner of a Grand Slam since Fred Perry and Olympic Gold and he did it in an era with Fed, Nadal and Novak, but when he becomes Number one tennis player or wins Wimbledon then his time will come. 2 Mo Farah huge expectations on him, running in what's looked at as the two hardest races in the games and impossible for a European racer to win and he won both, 1 Jess Ennis extremely hard to chose between here and Mo, but when your looked at as the face of the games, and your the golden star in this team and nothing but gold is acceptable and the hole of the Uk expects ...

Don't suppose that Alex Salmond is strutting around like a peacock after last nights footie. Seem to recall that he declared Andy Murray's Grand Slam win as another example of a great Scottish sporting achievement. Mmm. Murray moved from Scotland to Spain as a teenager for coaching/training. Anyway let's hope that if we get an independent Scottish Government they perform better than the national football team. Otherwise as in the words of Private Fraser "We're all doomed"
Andy Murray has revealed that it was not the on-court coaching of Ivan Lendl that turned him into a Grand Slam winner, but the intervention of a psychologist.

On match point, that bloody drought crept into Andy Murray's head. How couldn't it? For years, the British press has reminded Murray of his country's tennis futility. Since 1936, when Fred Perry took the U.S. Open, no British man had won a Grand Slam singles title.

Congratulations Andy Murray on your first Grand Slam. You deserve it man!
I hate the fact Andy Murray won his first Grand Slam, but it is insanely awesome that Sean Connery gave him a fist pump with the victory.
We've had Bradley Wiggins in the Tour De France then the fantastic achievements of team GB in both the Olympics and the Paralympics. We have Andy Murray winning his first Grand Slam. They make the English football team look vastly overpaid and vastly overrated.
Andy Murray not only won his first Grand Slam, he had Sir Sean Connery cheering him on.

Andy Murray's Grand Slam breakthrough title at the US Open on Monday has secured the Scotsman's spot among the
Too exhausted to jump up and down or run over to the stands the way some newly crowned champions do, Andy Murray dropped his racket to the court, crouched down gingerly and covered his mouth with his hands. A few minutes later, he took off his shoes, sat in his chair on the sideline, leaned his head back and looked into the dark New York sky. The 25-year-old Scotsman won the U.S. Open to earn the Grand Slam title that had eluded him the four previous times he had gotten this close. It took six minutes short of five hours on a windblown Monday night that was certainly not made for tennis. If it seemed like longer, well, there are some pretty good reasons for that. Murray's final against Novak Djokovic felt like three matches packed into one and maybe a lifetime or two for those watching back home in Britain, where it was a few minutes after 2 a.m. today when the last ball was struck. After taking a two-set lead, then squandering it, then girding himself for the deciding fifth set, Murray brought the first ...

Andy Murray wins his first ever grand slam! Murray's fairytale of New York By Tom Fordyce Chief sports writer, BBC Sport Comments (114) And there you were thinking this sporting summer had given us everything it could. Andy Murray's nerve-mangling, history-making US Open triumph over Novak Djokovic was many things: one of the great finals of the modern era, a late-night thriller from the city that never sleeps, a breath-taking demonstration of physical strength and mental fortitude. This fairytale of New York was also the perfect bookend to a few months that British sport can scarcely believe and will never forget. Hoodoos, holy grails and history books have all gone up in smoke: 29 Olympic Golds, a Briton in yellow on the Champs-Elysees, and now the granddaddy of them all - a British male with his hands on a Grand Slam trophy. In the end, after 76 years and a stomach-churning four hours 54 minutes, the wait ended in almost mundane fashion - a tired backhand return, Murray pulling his racquet aside, the y ...
This morning on MSNBC, they were doing a sports "round-up" and commented on Andy Murray's win. "And when did the last Brit win a Grand Slam?" Joe asked historian Jon Meacham. His reponse: "Neville Chamberlain?"
Hats off to Andy Murray! I managed to stay up until the end of the third set, at which point I thought Murray would crack, and therefore lose. Very glad to have been wrong about that. He should now go on to win many more 'Grand Slam' tournaments (truthfully the only tournaments that really matter), as his mentor, Ivan Lendl, also did.
