I thought I might to a bit of an 'Andy in the media' section seeing as he did quite a pit of PR from Roehampton while he was out with injury. And a little about Booray's blog too. Thoughts?

Busy writing my bit about the press and i think this could become a regular section of the newsletter.

We could call it 'Murray in the Media' and it could just be about extra articles about or by Andy over and above the regular match coverage. things like interviews for AM.com, his inside sport appearance, Artois podcast, comments from J Mac and the piece from the other day about his parents divorce would be the kind of thing that would feature.

Murray in the Media

When Andy retired after only one set of doubles in Monte Carlo that he had to withdraw from the entire tournament you would expect the Andy Murray section to fall quiet bar the odd report on his injury progress. However, it seems that Murray’s 3 week stretch of recovery at the National Training Centre in Roehampton allowed him plenty of time to give us just a little more insight into what makes him tick.

Andy in Stella Artois Podcast

Andy Murray has been featured in the 5th episode of the Artois Championships podcast series which was released today on iTunes.

In the podcast Andy Murray gives support for the John McEnroe initiative of reintroducing wooden racquets to the game.

I think that would be great. I would love to see some of the guys play with wooden racquets now. Maybe a couple of tournaments a year - it would be really interesting for the fans to see guys playing with wooden racquets.
You can grab the podcast from iTunes for free right now.

Brad works overtime for British Tennis

 
The Times newspaper has interviewed coach Brad Gilbert and have given an in depth look into his life working for the LTA and more importantly, Andy Murray.

If Andy is satisfied with being No 10, that’s as good as he’ll be. Yes, tennis has a different profile in Britain than in the States, but the players aren’t different.

I worked with Andre Agassi and Andy Roddick – they were hungry to be No 1, the best they could be. Andy Murray is the same. He shouldn’t worry about what’s said outside the lines – remove it from your brain.

- Full Story (timesonline.co.uk)

A Day with Andy on Inside Sport

On Monday 7th May, Inside Sport broadcast a feature on ‘A Day in the Life of Andy Murray.’ The item was much anticipated by the fans and did not disappoint. While giving a fly on the wall type view of a typical training session with Brad, Andy and Tim and a look into a typical core muscle-strengthening session in the gym it also allowed the teenager to voice his opinions on a number of issues in a completely honest manner. Andy talked of his desire to win a Grand Slam with his older brother, Jamie, his relationship with Brad Gilbert, his relationship with the media and he emphasised his unwillingness to put a time-frame on any success from now on although he did say he shouldn’t be expected to win a Grand Slam this year because he’s not played enough big matches. Andy also re-stated his desire to compete for Great Britain in the 2012 Olympics.

  The chance to play in a competition like that doesn't come around too often.

I would love to get the chance to play in the Olympics and especially, I'm guessing, [because] they'll probably play it at Wimbledon.

I loved watching the Olympics although it wasn't normally the tennis I watched - I loved the 100m and stuff.

Andy speaks exclusively to andymurray.com

Following the announcement of Andy’s withdrawal from Estoril, andymurray.com posted a short clip from a lengthy day of interviews they conducted to use on the release of their new website design. It basically confirmed, from the man himself, the progress on his injury.

    Ed: So long time no see, how are things?
Andy: Yeah I’m doing alright. I had a bit of a problem with my back the last few weeks but I’m feeling good.
Ed: Doing some “core” muscle work today?
Andy: Yeah, I was working hard today. I’ve had to do that the last five or six days since I hurt my back because I can’t lift any weights or do any running, so I’m just trying to get that stronger so I don’t have any problems with my back when I come back.
Ed: In terms of comebacks, what’s the thinking?
Andy: I think Rome is realistic. I started hitting again a little bit too soon to see if I’d be ok to play Estoril, and I felt my back again so it’s looking like I’m going to have to miss that. But you know - Rome and Hamburg are the big ones before the French and I want to make sure I get ready for them.


Andy given a boost of confidence from John MacEnroe (again!)

British number one Andy Murray can transfer his world-class form from hard courts to clay, according to three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe.

This is his most vulnerable surface but I think he can be successful. It's going to be tough for him initially.

I think he can win two, three, four rounds at the French. He certainly won't be easy to beat and he is capable of getting to the round of 16 or the quarters.

He needs to get out there, play some matches and get some confidence.

Murray hopes to be back in action at next week's Masters Series event in Rome.

Murray Reveals Childhood trauma

Andy Murray has revealed to the The Times newspaper the suffering of living though his parent's separation and how his anger helped him reach the top of his sport. This is the first time Murray has publicly spoken on the subject.

Yes, I found it difficult. They didn't speak too much and they didn't get on too well together. They are just two different people. I think that's quite normal. I always felt there was maybe a little competition (between the parents), so if I stayed with my mother for two nights, then I should stay with my father for two nights.

At Christmas, I didn't know how long to spend with each of them. I would get stuck in the middle of their arguments. I would get really upset, and one of the things I would have loved to have more than anything was a family that worked better together, although I love my mother and father to bits.

I wanted to put in the little AM.com logo and the Telegraph one but I didn't really know how as I stole the other ones from the stories in News! Can you help Mark?

It's a good idea but I'm not sure whether we should have all this in the format you did. I think it's a bit long winded and should be shortened down to small snippets and links to the full story Think

Whatever. I didn't really do a huge deal of work on it. Just copied and pasted from the News section (other than the inside sport story, which I wrote). Most of the text is the Murray quotes actually, which is what the section is all about...

Cut out the quotations. You guys can decide. I kinda liked the first way cause I doubt many would click the links and they get more info from the quotations included but you are right in that it looks a little bulky. I suppose we could remove the pictures but I just thought they broke up the text a little.

Much better Smile

And I think we should ditch the images as in the newsletter format (quite thin) it would take up too much space but I'll see what it looks like in the draft Think
