loved reading that interview with Andrew Murray.  Can't even remember who the Miles was he was referring to. 

Do we live in the Dark Ages? lol

Thanks for this Craig, very interesting reading! Amazing to think about the career he's had since that US Open junior win. Smile
Thanks from me too.  Strange to see him being called Andrew though. Smile   I didn't realise that Andy won this event so soon after coming back from that knee problem he had.  Incredible!


That is awesome! Really hope he wins it Very Happy
I've never heard of the other five candidates. Whistle  Good luck Andy!

I really enjoyed reading that article from after the Junior US Open, with the added dynamic of knowing what did happen next. 

Of the other Laureus nominees, I know Gabby Douglas.  She's a big star in the world of gymnastics, and while I didn't recognise Ye Shiwen by name, I was able to guess who she was when I knew she was a Chinese swimmer.  She's the 16 year old who got that great time, prompting an American  coach to question it, in turn prompting the swimming community to point out that all great swimmers see big improvements in their times at that age and to stop being a sore loser! Whistle

I had to check who the others were. Embarassed

I see from that Wiki link that Kevin Spacey has presented the awards in the past.  If he does it again this year he'll probably just give the award to Andy.  In fact, he might win them all!  yay

What I was meaning is that people tend to know only those who do well in the sports that they follow.

Thanks for the info about Gabby.  And now that you mention it, I do remember that Chinese swimmer and the furore she caused when she won two golds at the Olympics.  Because of her tremendous strength (she could swim faster than some of the leading male swimmers) not only was the finger pointed at PEDs but also her true gender, which has been questioned in the past, whilst her supporters' explanation was that her successes were the result of years of brutal intensive training in a Chinese sporting boot camp.

Well, let's face it, Andy Murray the Open University student is doing a hell of a lot more than Andy Murray the tennis player at the moment. God, this is tedious.

Murray, Henman sign up for Rally Against Cancer

Andy Murray and Tim Henman played each other four times as their careers overlapped, Murray winning three of them in what was a rather obvious passing of the baton, in British tennis at least. With Henman playing golf several times a week, the two men have not set foot on a court together since but that will be rectified this summer as they join forces to help Ross Hutchins in his fight against Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a form of cancer.

Hutchins, who together with Colin Fleming finished just one spot away from a place in the season-ending Word Tour finals for the top eight doubles pair, is in the middle of his chemotherapy treatment, which is being carried out at London’s Royal Marsden Hospital.

To highlight the great work being done there, for Hutchins and numerous other cancer sufferers, Murray and Henman are to take part in Rally Against Cancer, an exhibition doubles event to be held at London’s Queen’s Club on finals day of the Aegon Championships, Sunday June 16. Money raised on the day will go towards The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, which supports The Royal Marsden Hospital. Both Murray, one of Hutchins’ closest friends, and Henman said they had not needed asking twice.

“As soon as Ross starting talking about the idea, I knew I wanted to get involved,” Murray said. “We want to make it a day to remember, so we are talking to a few celebrities, who love their tennis, about coming down and getting involved on the day. I’m looking forward to helping raise as much money and awareness as possible so the charity can continue the amazing work it does, which I’ve heard all about through Ross.”

Henman, who retired in 2007, said he was looking forward to being back on a big stage. “This is a great idea and a great cause, and I’m happy to have been asked to take part,” he said. “It will be fun to go out on the Centre Court at The Queen’s Club again, and for the first time with Andy. Most importantly, it’s an opportunity to raise money for The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity which supports the hospital that is treating Ross and makes such a difference to so many people. I’m sure everyone involved in tennis and on the day will get behind it to raise as much money as possible.”

Hutchins may yet take part in the on-court festivities, depending on his treatment, but the Englishman said raising money was the most important thing. “Ever since I was diagnosed and began treatment at The Royal Marsden hospital I have wanted to do something to raise money for them to thank them for their kindness,” he said.

“It is an unbelievable place that helps thousands of people in situations similar to mine. I’d had the idea of running a tennis event, and was approached by Chris Kermode, the Tournament Director (at Queen’s) and the team at the LTA, who suggested doing something after the final of the Aegon Championships at The Queen’s Club. I thought it was a great idea. I then asked Andy (Murray), and straight away he said he was up for it, that he would love to play for the charity. Now Tim has said he will play, too, which is fantastic. It’s going to be a really great day and for a charity that helps a lot of people and obviously one that means a lot to me.”

For each finals day ticket purchased, £10 will go directly to The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity. The LTA will also give £10 for every ace hit during the tournament and there will be an auction set up to raise further money. Further donations can be made directly and at any time by going to:

Thanks for that Dani. It should be a good occasion - great to see Tim & Andy together, and those celebrities will be queuing up to take part!
