I enjoyed reading that article, thanks for posting it, i particularly liked this part

He is 9-1 in decisive sets this year, which is superior to his 6-3 mark heading into last year's U.S. Open. By winning percentage, he trails only Nadal's 12-1 record.

"He's more clutch," Tennis Channel's Justin Gimelstob said.

Opponents say the 6-3 Murray, whose physical game is built around stellar returns, sleight-of-hand defense and big serving, has evolved in other ways.

According to 11th-ranked Milos Raonic of Canada, Murray has mastered the art of "reeling you in" during points and then extricating himself from what looks like a compromised position.

"You feel like you're so close to winning a lot of points, and he takes them away from you in the last second," Raonic said. "And in the end, it's not that he gets out of them once in a while. He gets out of them consistently."

Raonic, who went 1-1 against Murray on hardcourts last year, including a straight-sets loss in the U.S. Open's fourth round, believes that the Scot also has learned to end points more effectively.

"Sometimes he's still caught up playing a little too defensive, but I think more and more often when you see him grab a short ball he's very dangerous," he added. "Before if you hit a crappy shot in a rally you felt like maybe he'll take it, or maybe he won't."

That is the most dangerous weapon of all if you can master it. It also instils a sense of uncertainty which compounds the psychology. Awesome. More and more of the man's genius is being revealed.

Raonic sounds like he learned a lot about our Andy from that fourth round pasting last year. Time and time again in that match Raonic seemed to think he'd got Andy, only to then find he hadn't. In that third set Raonic didn't seem to have any idea of how to get through Andy.

A "beautiful and very personal" illustrated book from Wimbledon champion Andy Murray will be published by Headline in November.

Jonathan Taylor, Headline non-fiction publishing director, acquired world rights to Andy Murray: 77 from Murray's management company.

When Murray lifted the Wimbledon trophy this summer, he was the first British man to win the championship for 77 years. The book will take the reader on "a personal journey" through Murray's career, focusing on the last two years. The publisher said the athlete was set to "share with us his thoughts on the pivotal moments of his playing career so far and allow us a glimpse into his world— his intense training regime, his close-knit team and his mental and physical battle to get to the top."

Taylor said: "Andy Murray is one of Britain's best-loved athletes. The whole country has followed the high and lows of his career and over 17 million of us tuned in with our hearts in our mouths to watch him defeat Djokovic and become Wimbledon Champion. This beautiful and very personal book will be a stunning celebration of Andy's career so far and all of us at Headline are absolutely thrilled to be working with him."

Andy Murray: 77 will be released on 7th November. Murray will do some publicity for the book, with details still to be finalised.

Murray released a biography, Hitting Back, with Century in 2008, retitled Coming of Age for the 2009 paperback.

Andy Murray has appeared in a Beano comic and had his face on stamps, but now he has the ultimate honour: being super-imposed on Murray Mints.

Fans of the Scot have the chance to get their hands on the sweets if they email in to the company and say how they're getting behind him in New York. Email: [email protected]

The defending US Open champion is expected to play his first round match on Wednesday against Frenchman Michael Llodra.

He certainly learnt enough to beat Andy in Tokyo a few weeks later.

Me too - expect the publicity stuff will be pre and post WTF as he will be in the country - so perhaps London stuff beforehand then a wee tour afterwards.
