For me, the rest of this tournament will tell us a hell of a lot about Murray and his chances of winning a slam.
Outside of the slams, he's never had to beat more than one of the big three to win smaller tournaments. To win Dubai, he's now going to have to beat the Djoker and probably Fed.
If he manages it, it's going to pose serious questions about why he can't do it in a slam.
No he beat Rafa and then Roger to win in Canada 2 years ago.
He's beaten them back to back in Abu Dhabi as well.
mmm Can't think of anymore however.
Andy will raise his game Today. He plays better as the underdog and at this level on a hardcourt 3 setter well he's one of the best ever. Although I would say that reputation is garnered more at the Masters Level than the 500. I dont have a sense of dread but I'm not feeling too confident either. I think Andy will sneak it.
