I'm a little late with this but it is a good read. Don't be put off by the title - there is quite a bit about Andy.http://www.sbnation.com/longform/2013/9/17/4736820/rafael-nadal-us-open-tennis-2013-comeback
Murray had never before had the opportunity to defend a Grand Slam title. Were he to win the Open again, he had a shot, for the first time, at the No. 1 ranking. But he looked dull and flat in the early rounds and clearly hampered by a hangover from his Wimbledon victory, which had called on every bit of his mind and body and spirit. ESPN had chosen him as the subject of one their overwrought TV essays all of which have the same evident subtext - who says we aren't sensitive? - is a question no one was asking. The Murray piece began with a tremulous "What happens to the dreamer when the dream comes true?" It's hardly a mystery. What happens is this: he gets tired.
Apparently memory is in short supply in Murray's homeland, where, mere weeks ago, he was a hero and speculation abounded as to when he would be knighted.
