I don't think anyone can really say "he will make a final for sure." He might make a final, or he may well not make a final. Tim Henman has never made one despite 4 Wimbledon semi finals, and numourous quater finals and both US Open and French semis, never a final. But Greg Rusedski, nowhere near the player Henman was at his best has made a grand slam final, so you never know. I personally feel that if Murray has half the career Henman had, then he wouldn't have done too badly, Henman gets a lot of underserved criticism in my opinion.
Definately, Tim Henman has had a fantastic career, and I think he really is treated quite badly by people saying he is rubbish (i quote my brother) But honestly he's done great, got to many slam semis, won many tournaments, and got to 4 inthe world.
Is there anyone else coming through at the moment? or is it only likely to be Murray for the next 10 years?
There's Bogdovonic..... ranked about 150 i believe
And isn't there a junior Andrew Kennaugh or something, who got to about 50 in the Junior rankings, who might make it up the senior rankings. Then there's Jamie Baker, Colin etc etc who might make it into top 100
And when was the last time we had a half decent woman? Sue Barker? I had a look at the British girl in the junior aussie open when I had a look round some of the outside courts last week, she was pretty average and got thrashed something like 6-1 6-0 in the first round.
Not true, she beat her first round apponent something like 6-2 6-3, only to be beaten by the top seed in the second round, this is quite good i believe for her first aussie open, and she is still only 15.
Maybe some of you have also been annoyed like me that Cyprus, population of 800,000 has had a guy in a grand slam final but we don't look like having anyone reach that height any time soon.
But i think this is what's amazing about this guy, he came from pretty much nowhere, his culture aren't really tennis players, and he managed to make it to the final. I also believe he is the first Cypriot to break into the top 1000, this is something truly amazing, and believe the Cypriots were enjoying it
