glad you've all enjoyed the article as much as I did - can't wait for the documentary as it sounds like she has really 'got' what Andy is about.

That was a great read, thanks Ruthie. Can't wait for the documentary. Funny how Kim wasn't mentioned in the article, because everyone else was.

Maybe she's not in the documentary that much? Shrug Or maybe she is,and they just decided not to focus on her in the article.

Oooh,I'm so excited to see it! Adding my thanks to the bunch Ruthie-it was a brilliant read Smile

Andy's latest column (posting the header pic too because I really like it :P):




Andy Murray column: Wimbledon now the focus after Queen's win


If I'm playing well enough to hit Ivan Lendl with a forehand for the first time ever, I reckon I'm in pretty good shape for Wimbledon.

Winning the title at Queen's Club was fantastic and then we helped raise a lot of money for a good cause  in the charity event. Drilling my coach at the net after trying for a year and a half rounded off pretty much the perfect day.

I hit it so cleanly - it was the best shot I played all week - and I already know that Ivan will try to get me back when we practise together this week.

Believe me, he won't have any concerns about injuring me the week before Wimbledon. As he always says: "It's just a tennis ball, it's not a hockey puck."

Whatever he comes up with, it will all be worth it to have helped out one of my best friends, Ross Hutchins, and it was great to see so many people stick around after the final.

To win a third title at Queen's also means a lot, as some of the greatest players to have played the game have lifted that trophy, and it was great to end the week feeling fit and healthy, if a bit tired.

It was really important for me to get matches under my belt and I was striking the ball well all week.

I made a few bad decisions at some stages, but I think a few more days' practice, getting a little bit more comfortable on the court and then playing more matches will cut that out.

I'll have a day off and then just concentrate on making sure I hit enough balls, work on a few things and play an exhibition later in the week.

This is the one month of the year where I allow myself to not do any of the domestic stuff - playing at Wimbledon is a good excuse! I'll spend loads of time with the physio doing my rehab and work on the court, but it's all about trying to relax, recover and stay fresh now.

Towards the end of the week I'll start to get excited about Wimbledon, but it's quite a busy five or six days in the build-up to the tournament, so you need to make sure you don't get too pumped, too soon.

There's a lot of stuff you have to do, so you don't want to waste any energy, but towards the end of the week when the draw's done, you start to get your head around it and get yourself psyched up.

I know there will be a lot of interest in the draw this year as Rafael Nadal looks like being seeded fifth, but as a player you can't get too obsessed about the draw.

I'd sign up to be in the quarter-finals against Rafa tomorrow if someone offered me that.

You could say if I get through that match, then the semi-final might not be as tough, but if you want to win the biggest tournaments you have to beat the best players in the world. It doesn't really matter where they are in the draw.

It's strange to think that this will be my eighth Wimbledon.

When I think about the matches from my first year in 2005, especially playing David Nalbandian on Centre Court, it feels like a long time ago - but it seems like time is going quicker now.

A lot's happened in the last eight years. I definitely have a better understanding of what is required these days and how to deal with certain situations.

I was only 18 and still a kid really when I played at Wimbledon the first time. It was all completely new to me and I was ranked 300 in the world. I'd never played on a big court before, but I really enjoyed it and I think that was a good sign.

I've obviously played on Centre Court many times since then but it never feels routine, it's always special.

And now I'm thinking about it, I can't wait to get back out there again.

Thanks for posting that article.  Seems to sum up British response to Andy.  But respect is more important than adoration any day.  What I like most about Andy is not just his amazing tennis but that he is his own man on and off the court.  Thanks to everyone who provided videos and links yesterday for Queens.
