Whisper it, but I think we've got one 'ere so raise a glass to the young Scot

IS THERE anything in life to compare to that first magic moment: that moment when you realise that there is an infinity of possibilities opening up before you?

Is there anything to compare to the moment when your eyes meet across a crowded room and somehow you know, even then, that some day you’ll see her again and again?

This week, Murray has confirmed what we first felt with the spark of possibility. True, Federer had that impossible thing, an off day. The point is that Murray was good enough, brave enough, confident enough, smart enough to take advantage of it. His victory said: “I have a right to be here, I have a right to be considered among the top players in the world. This is my place and I am happy here.”

There's some beautiful lines in that piece. It's verging on the poetic, I was quite moved, although the phrases are slightly threatening to become cliches. He captures the moment really well when you first realise something. The line about a lover's head on your pillow realising things have changed, there's no going back and no desire to is quite poignant. Poetry's about capturing the moment, and it's a tribute to the times that a writer can turn a sports article into a poem or meditation.

I really enjoyed it. It is a masterclass in column writing with little news to cover: a strong opinion expressed often in a beautiful way.
