Petchey Told Sky Sports (ON Murray)
"I don't think he has a chance of winning a slam at the moment on grass." I'd have to say the US open if you were looking at one"
"His going to be his best chance"
Very Debatable I would say, I would have said the French but still  Wink

He seems to play amazing in the US, it's going to be his best chance. Too early to predict how good he'll be at RG, although Murray was brought up on clay, his results on it haven't been too great it has to be said.

I think he would have beaten Nalbandian at Wimbers if he had lasted longer and who knows what would have happened if he had the stamina. I think Wimbledon will be his best bet. Nothing like the CC atmosphere and the fans cheering you on

Wimby is meant to be slower + higher bouncing now, but at the end of the day, it's not as slow or as high bouncing as the USO courts - they suit his game best.

Andy's proved that he has a great grasscourt game, so I think he'll have a chance at Wimbledon in a few years. Also like SirPanda said there's always a great atmostphere on the Centre Court with massive support, and that must surely help me.

I think Andy has a chance at all the slams. He has an all-court game. He can adapt and change to any surface, and no one could ever say Murray is one dimensional.

The Slam I think he won't have such a great shot at is maybe the Aussie Open. Judging by the start of this year he doesn't much care for the rebound ace surface, but maybe that was just a one off?

murray made his slam debut at wimbly and hasnt played at the french open yet, or any of the clay masters series' if i believe; i think it will be exciting to see how he does on those as he has a better serve than any of the clay court specialists and the serve is still important regardless of surface

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

I think Murray is a true three courter since he is good on grass, great on hard cort and should be good on clay since thats where he trained. Am I saying too much--- He may do the Grand Slam one day...

I'm not too fussed which one I would rather he won.
Of course, like any Brit I want us to have someone win Wimbledon, but at the moment I'd be happy enough to see a Brit win any grandslam in my lifetime to be honest.

As for his best chance, I would have said the French too, due to his clay background etc but he has shown he can play on all 3, with his most success coming on US hardcourts, so who knows?

C'mon guys...give him a few years. He'll develop, and I dont think he expects a grand slam until hes 21+
