Murray is reflecting on the impact he has made in 2005, his rookie year on the ATP Tour. By any standards it has been an extraordinary 12 months.

Before reminiscing about the key moments of the season, however, Murray has cause to wince when recalling how it had started.

Murray said:
I hurt my back in January, when I was in South America. I think it was because I was growing a lot. So the first three months didn't go very well for me. I had to take some time off, and I didn't really enjoy that too much, because I'd been out with a knee injury for six months at the start of 2004.

Although he had predicted that he would finish his first year on the Tour in the top 100, did his success surprise him?
It didn't really surprise me. At the start of the year I had my goal. I wanted to get into the top 100 and I believed I was going to do it. Maybe it came a month earlier than I might have expected, but I knew I was going to get my chance around Queen's/Wimbledon time. It's just about taking your opportunities when you're coming through. And I did that. I always believed in myself.

That video is pretty good - but no mention of match vs Federer or any of his good work in the US.
I enjoyed the article though - great stuff!

I know - quite amusing how they skip pretty much the whole summer/autumn - the stuff that actually gave him the ranking points....
