absolutely Teejay! Its that spirit i think we all saw when we all first discovered the role model sportsman & human being that is Andy Murray. We've had our ups & downs over the years but it all has finally paid off over the past year or so & payback to all the doubters!!
I keep getting the image of that skinny 18 year old who first played Queen's and Wimbledon in 2005 in my head. I vividly recall telling people then, 'that boy is going to win slams'. Now I'm saying, 'I don't like to say I told you so, but......'
There have been ups and downs. I admit there were times when I could have shaken him until his teeth rattled, especially in those moments when it felt like he was beating himself before the opponent had chance to do it. Now I just take my hat off to the man and admire him for never giving up, for continuing to work and work, even in the face of painful loses. It's paying off now, big time.
I take my hat off to Andy for building a great team around him too. There is Lendl, of course, and he has contributed so much, but I'm sure each one has played their part. Where Andy deserves so much credit is in making the choices he has made, to get involved with certain people, to have certain people in his team, knowing what he needed to do to get where he now is.
