Andy urges support for Glasgow Youth Olympic Games 2018

News - Thursday, June 27 2013
Andy has used his return to Wimbledon, the scene of his famous gold medal triumph at London 2012, to urge people to get behind Glasgow’s bid to host the 2018 Youth Olympic Games (YOG).

The British number 1, who will take on Spaniard Tommy Robredo in the third round on Friday, is relishing being back on the grass courts at SW19. And he is backing Glasgow’s bid to stage the 2018 YOG, saying the city’s passionate fans and world-class venues will make it the perfect host.

The Glasgow 2018 bid team has vowed to put young people at the heart of the Games and have already engaged more than 1.5million young people from across the UK.

Andy believes his gold at the London 2012 Olympic Games was the catalyst for what has been one of his best years yet. And the current world number 2 says Glasgow 2018 can have the same effect on the best young sports stars, inspiring them to be champions in their lives.

Andy said: “It’s a great feeling being back at Wimbledon. London 2012 was inspiring on so many levels and I know that Glasgow 2018 can be the same. The fans in Glasgow are known across the world for their passion and that is something that the best young athletes in the world would respond to.

“It is incredible to think that the next generation of stars could be taking their first steps on the road to success in Glasgow. I never had the chance to play in a Youth Olympic Games but the experience of London 2012 will live with me forever. I wish that young people globally continue to be inspired by the Olympic ideals and that they get that chance in Glasgow.

“The support from the fans at the Olympics was something else and really inspired me. They drove me on and in that final and I probably played one of the best matches of my life that day. It gave me the belief that I could go on and win a slam.”

Since winning Olympic gold Andy won the US Open with a thrilling five-set victory over Novak Djokavic. He continued his preparations for Wimbledon with his third win in the Aegon Championships on the grass courts at Queen’s Club.

There's a piece on the BBC's website where Tim Henman looks at the rest of Andy's draw and assesses how dangerous they might be.

I can't remember how to link to it on my iPad, but it's worth a read.

It is emotional. It shows how Andy has learned the hard way. It also shows that Andy is aware that frustration, anger, can stop you getting what you want. Thank God he's clearer in his thinking now.

It just occurs to me that if Andy does what we all hope and dream in the next fortnight, that piece is going to be even more emotional!

I wonder is it the Mail just speculating again,or have they heard something definite about plans for another book?  Think

"Andy Murray's official autobiography, Hitting Back, written at the grand old age of 21, sold only around 10,000 copies. In contrast, a biography by tennis writer Mark Hodgkinson called Andy Murray Champion,  was rushed out after his US Open success and has had 25,000 hardback sales. A paperback is just published, as well as editions in Polish and Japanese. The Murray camp did not co-operate with the rival publication because there will be another autobiography down the line."

Mike Dickson makes the interesting point that next week will be as much a psychological test as a physical one.

It's tempting Wimbledon fate, but Andy Murray is close to irresistible when playing like he did against Robredo

Pretty much the only thing that went wrong was when he bounced a ball on his foot as he was preparing to serve, writes Oliver Holt

And so, in this tournament of tempests, Andy Murray sails serenely on.

Amid the shocks and the injuries, the early farewells and the sprains, Murray made it into Wimbledon’s second week without a scratch.

The Scot played quite beautifully to brush aside the accomplished Tommy Robredo with contemptuous ease.

Murray played with such a bewitching mixture of power and guile that he made Robredo look like a novice.

It is tempting fate terribly but in this kind of form, he is close to irresistible.

Last night, under the Centre Court roof, he was simply majestic.

If he can stay close to this level, there should be no one in his denuded half of the draw capable of getting anywhere near him.

Then there will be Novak Djokovic, of course, and that will be a different matter.

If both progress to the final, a titanic encounter awaits a week tomorrow.

This clash was utterly one-sided.

Pretty much the only thing that went wrong for Murray all evening was when he bounced a ball on his foot by mistake as he was preparing to serve.

He made amends by serving an ace and winning the game to love.

He wrapped up his 6-2, 6-4, 7-5 victory in just over two hours to set up a fourth-round clash with either Mikhail Youzhny or Viktor Troicki on Monday afternoon.

If either of them was watching Murray’s victory, they may have already booked their flight home on Tuesday morning.

It should be pointed out amid the optimism that Robredo is hardly at his most comfortable on the lawns of the All England Club.

This is a man who has not reached the fourth round here in 12 appearances and reserves his best performances for clay and hard courts.

He had only reached the third round twice before yesterday and in the first set in particular, he played like a man who has little affinity for grass.

There was no conviction to his slice and his forehands were loaded with so much top spin that they sat up nicely, ready for Murray to hammer them back flat.

Robredo played, in short, like a man marooned on the wrong surface. He is a fine player but Murray exposed his shortcomings on grass ruthlessly.

Murray did not give Robredo a chance to settle. From the first point, he was crowding him and hustling him.

He wore him down and outrallied him to break his serve in the third game of the first set and never looked back.

The best shot of the match was an early cross backhand return that Murray took ridiculously early and slammed past Robredo for a winner.

That earned Murray the break point that led to a 4-1 lead and although Murray was broken back, he broke the Spaniard again to dash into a one-set lead.

Robredo has a habit of reacting well to adversity and his play improved in the second set.

But Murray still broke his serve early and was never really threatened.

Robredo rescued some pride at least. He played even better in the third set and Murray had to fight to stay with him.

But a backhand volley that landed on the line gave Murray a break point at 5-5 and his outclassed opponent folded
