Is it me or has British tennis hit twlight zone. Its completely come alive in the last 2 wks and it's down to one man and one only Murray. I have never seen such a steely determination and composure from a youngester let alone a British youngester. His play is wizzardery. He shows so much passion and emotion which is so refreshingly needed for the game.

Murray has made a big impact and is inspiring others. Take Parmer who hasn't reach a quarter final since 04.Ironically he did this week in Rotterdam.

This really is exciting times for British tennis and long many it continue. However I feel humble and excited at the same time. I have watched Henman for a decade Its seems sad that his career is nearly over, but I take comfort in that a new one is beginng. I really do believe Murray is a champion in the making

Congratulations Murray. I bow down to ur achievements so far keep it up mate x  hug

What i like Best about Murray's Tennis is his determination to get EVERY single ball back to continue the point it's like Nadals play a bit, i've been watching Henman and Resedski for a while and he's got something those two miss which is the ability to keep the point going for as long as possible Tim & Greg would sadly put it in the net first if your betting on it they say there is a lot of people like that but even the almighty Federer sometimes can't be bothered to chase a ball down

That's right. When I watch Henman and things go into a long rally, you get that horrible feeling that he will be the first to net it. Murray on the other hand gives you the confidence that it will be his opponent that will net it.

If at first you don't succeed, you fail.

Yeah exactly you've just got to wonder how easily would Tim & Greg be in the top 10 if they could cut all those unforced errors down as their own games are great... well it's just if's really

Umm, when?  confused  His record at the Aus Open is appalling. He certainly had no joy in reaching the semi finals- he's only done that at the French and the US once (2004) so there's no way he had points to defend.

Maybe you're talking of the Adelaide tourney which is held 2 weeks before?

Don't think you would drop 40 places from failing to defend points from Adelaide.

I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

It was last year, after the US Open, when he dropped to about number 30-odd - failing to defend his semi-final points.
