Andy Murray - US Open and Wimbledon champion! :)

An Andy-related extract from Pat Cash's article in the Sunday Times:

Why I back Nadal to defy this absurd seeding

"So in the last four Murray is the probable opponent and after the Scot's back injury I'm wondering if he will be sufficiently strong, physically and mentally, to last back-to-back five-set matches. The only times Murray has beaten Nadal in Grand Slam matches has been when Rafa was playing hurt: the US Open in 2008 and the Australian Open in 2010. Since the Scot reached the final of the Australian Open in January he hasn't enjoyed the greatest of years by the lofty standards we expect from him. He won the Miami Masters title in March and Queen's last week but he didn't have to beat another member of the top four to claim either trophy. To win Wimbledon I'm sure he'll have to beat two of them, back to back over the best of five sets. He has never managed that and, sadly, I'm not sure he'll do it this time."

----------

Have I missed something here, or am I right in thinking that Rafa wasn't injured at all in their US Open match that Andy won? And in their Australian Open match, didn't Rafa get injured only after Andy had a 2 set lead anyway, with Andy always looking like the likely winner.

Ooh crocodile tears from Cash when he writes 'sadly'.  He's often quick to be down on Andy and yes Katie I don't recall Rafa being injured in the USO 2008.  Hope he'll be eating his chequered headband this time in 2 weeks time

Pat Cash will always back anyone but Andy, so I never expect anything from him.

Hopefully he will! I don't think he usually gets his predictions right anyway so perhaps it's a good omen he's backing Rafa...

I don't mind so much the pundits having an opinion, but do get annoyed when they get their facts totally wrong. Like in this article, where apparently Andy only had 1 Masters title at the beginning of 2010!

He's always the same regarding Andy. Some of PC other tennis articles can be interesting though.

Nadal was actually injured during that match, but Cash is just jealous because Murray will get more praise for winning then he did in his day.

Don't particularly mind Pat Cash but he does tend to talk out of his backside at times.  Having had discussions in the past on MW about the best players never to win a Slam perhaps we should consider the 'worst' players to win one.  Cash will be up there.
