Murray's year?
« on: Jun 25, 2013, 09:16 »
After coming so close last year, then winning an Olympic Gold and the US Open, I think Murray is ready to put to rest the British Wimbledon Drought. (Especially when Rafa got knocked out yesterday).

What do you reckon?

Would love it to happen.

Watching that yesterday certainly raised the blood pressure to new levels. Still all's well that ends well. :D

Over the moon with the result. Well done Andy.

To beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets takes some doing. In fact, you'd probably have to go back a long way to find anyone that's done it, and I would doubt it's ever happened in a best-of-5-sets Grand Slam final before. Now the hoodoo is finally broken, some of the pressure will be taken off Andy and he should be able to really shine now.

Oh and i'd just like to say, what a prize dick Alex Salmond is for what he did with the Saltire in the Royal Box.   :oops:

If Scotland get their independence after their coming vote will the Wimbledon win for Murray then be classed as a Scottish win and still make it seventy odd years since the last English winner ?
You're born alone, you die alone.  Anything in between is make believe.

Don't think he'll retain the title this year. The split with Lendl has knocked his form a bit, although the French Open will be a good guide of whether he is still hungry for more Grand Slam titles.
