i could have started a tennis thread but britains big hope should have his own. just watched all of his bangkok final this morning against roger federer and he played great. 6-3 7-5 against the worlds number one in your first ever match, in your first ever final, and your a wild card is impressive. he could have very easily taken it to a 3rd set and got deuce on federers serve on many ocassions. now if you think that federer as won his last 9 matches against both hewitt and roddick and last 6 against agassi, plus hes won his 24 straight final and 31st match in a row, i dont think andy murray did that bad.

At this rate he'll be British no 1 in the rankings by Wimbledon next year.  He played well against Federer in the final and beat some highly ranked players along the way.  His fitness seems to be improving and his baseline play looks good.  I reckon if he took on Henman now then he could beat him comfortably.

Quote Rising star Andrew Murray overcame British number one Tim Henman 6-2 5-7 7-6 (7-4) in the first round of the ATP Swiss Indoors tournament.

The match came down to a deciding tie-break and it was Murray who showed superior composure to close it out with his second match point.

Murray seized the first three points of the tie-break before sharing the next six for a 6-3 lead and three match points.

And although Henman saved the first with a whipped forehand down the line, he could do nothing to prevent Murray claiming victory on the second with a volley into an open court.

The young Scot had earlier raced through a spectacularly one-sided opening set in just 34 minutes.

Murray's returns dominated the Henman serve and he secured breaks in the first and third games of the match for a 3-0 lead before going on to take the set 6-2.

Henman raised his game appreciably at the start of the second set and his improved play was rewarded with a break of serve to lead 3-1.

Murray's response was to break back immediately to level at 3-3 and more inventive play allowed him to break again in the ninth game for a 5-4 lead.

With Murray serving for the match, Henman produced some vintage tennis to take a 15-40 lead before his opponent conceded the game by netting ill-judged drop-shot.

The narrow escape inspired Henman as he served out to love for a 6-5 lead and then continued to pressurise Murray's serve for a second successive break and the second set 7-5.

Both players concentrated on securing their serve during a tense deciding set.

Neither man was able to generate a break point opportunity as the match came down to a tie-break in which Murray further enhanced his growing reputation.

so the scot beat the englishman. shame really because beating henman too soon may not be good for him. it was a close match though with it only being decided by a tiebreaker. murrays year just gets better. just wish he wasnt so damn miserable and childish.

Don't know how true it is but i have heard somewhere he has said that he will be wearing his paraguay shirt on saturday. Yes i know he is from Scotland so doesn't have to support us in the world cup. But saying that so close to Wimbledon when thousands will be supporting him is pure stupid. And he needs to improve on clay too. His injury problems take the piss. I have never known someone new to the tour to have so many injuries in so many different body parts.

This guy is really starting to get on my nerves.  He's like a spoilt brat on the court and he's got an excuse every time he loses.  He does nothing but complain about the attention he gets and seems to think that the reason he's not improving is that people are holding him back.  And he's not exactly going to be Mr popular by being anti english for the world cup.  Hope he has an early exit at Wimbledon so we dont have to put up with his annoying personality.

The way he is going at the minute I can see Henman getting further than Murray at Wimbledon. Fair play to him he has had some injuries, but still he carries on playing, I think he needs to be told that if you have a slight knock especially if it is to the back that you need to take time out to allow it to heal.

Barely two weeks since hooking up with new coach Brad Gilbert, Andy Murray today beat world No1 Roger Federer in straight sets.

The 19-year-old became only the second player to defeat Federer in 2006 - after French Open champion Rafael Nadal who has beaten him on four occasions - as he marched into the third round of the Cincinnati Masters.

Murray's 7-5, 6-4 victory came in front of the demanding Gilbert, the man who steered Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick to grand slam triumphs and may well complete a startling hat-trick soon should Murray continue to develop at his present rate.

It was also Murray's first victory over eight-time grand-slam winner Federer, who prevailed when the Scot contested his first ATP final in Bangkok last October, their only previous meeting.

And after reaching the Washington final and the semi-finals in Toronto in his previous two tournaments, it confirmed Murray among the form men heading into the US Open, which begins in New York on August 28. His progress has been beyond what Murray, Gilbert and the Lawn Tennis Association, who have provided funding to bring Gilbert on board, could have wished for.

In a match which featured a staggering 12 breaks of serve, Murray sealed victory with a breathtaking backhand pass beyond his illustrious opponent.

 
What an amazing win for Andy Murray. For him to beat Federer in straight sets in his warm up event for the US Open is amazing. In the short time with Brad Gilbert he is coming on leaps and bounds. Federer never loses in straight sets. Especially in only the third round of an event. But thing is beating Roger will mean nothing if he doesn't continue beating people. I hope this is the confidence he needs to break into the top ten by the end of the year. Too early to mention winning a grand slam. But he is going in the right direction for the first time in months.
