Second thought....how many GS trophies has Tony got to his credit now?
I don't care about Davy or his coach...never have.  
  
Let's cut the crap...you want him to stay with mummy or not? Is that your position?
Mummy's run her course! She maybe cool, but if you want him to move on and up, he needs more than a cute consolation pat on his ass!

Buh, hoooo hoooo, weet..... I don't give a bloody damn (sorry but this is where the avatar comes in)  whether Judy, a Hoody or anyone else gets to grips with Andy....as long as someone does  Rolling Eyes it is such a waste of good talent and seeing him going through this obvious dilemma is mind numbing for a fan. Furthermore, I have only once stated on this site that I thought that...just to drop his mother, along with all the others that might be giving him comfort and EVEN good advice, may not necessarily be the correct thing to do.

Just wish Murray had not pee'd off Stefanki - that would have been a good one.

I honestly agree about that point Daisy. Stefanki would have been THE man.  Wouldn't have stood any nonsense that's for sure!  nervous

You/me may be right...but unless I'm being totally DIM...I don't see any comments that I've made on this current post as "stirring the pot"?

Just listening to Mark Petchey stuttering through his thoughts on the Murray coach situation.  He's obviously trying very hard not to add fuel to the fire ... the one thing that came out of it all, after 15 minutes of yadda yadda was that he felt Murray wanted a high profile coach rather than someone like, say, Magnus Norman.  The next words out of his mouth were Darren Cahill - and then he said, but of course I'm not suggesting that Darren Cahill is the one etc etc ...
Hum-hum ... and so it goes on ... A friend told me last night that he'd heard on the radio that Maria Sharapova's father was tipped as being a possible coach for Murray.  I reminded him that April Fool's Day was today, but later got round to checking up on Sharapova's coaching situation and found that she parted company with her long-time coach, Michael Joyce, just before the AO and employed Thomas Hogstedt instead.

So it seems that Michael Joyce is looking for a job right now, and while it's true that Yuri Sharapov worked alongside Joyce, I've checked his coaching credentials online and found nothing.  However, given the bizarre twists and turns of the last few months, anything is possible. Rolling Eyes

Also the Beeb is a little contradictory.  Yes they're claiming that a decision could be made in the next couple of days, BUT then they go on to say that "Murray accepts he needs a new coach with experience, as long as he can find the right person.  Ideally he wants to appoint someone for 20-25 weeks a year, and wants them in place as soon as possible."  Given that in 8 months he's failed to find 'the right person' then, unless he's either wildly clutching at straws or has had someone in mind for a while, quite frankly, I can't see any announcement being made soon.

Well, Brett Connors, his son, follows him. There are too many clues that give it away. I feel it's genuinely him.

He wouldn't take any crap. He allegedly used to hand out beatings when she was a kid.

Former king of Wimbledon, Connors insists: I'd make Murray a champion [Mail, 2 April]

... Andy's still a kid, and his best years are in front of him, even though he has already been in the final of the US Open, and two finals at the Australian Open,' he said.   'But it's important for Andy to understand that you have to grasp - grab - those chances when they come as there's no knowing when they come around again. If you don't take advantage of them, before you know it your time has run out.  I began watching his Australian Open final against Djokovic, but I admit I turned off the television. A few things I saw made me think the match was over in the first five or six games...'

... Murray's exasperation as another major final turned against him, after playing superb tennis in his six previous matches, surfaced that evening in Melbourne through his tendency, in times of stress, to round on those supporting him.  Connors said: 'If I'd done that once, I might have been forgiven; if I'd done it again, the place would have been empty. Once you're on the court, you're by yourself. Champions embrace that, figure it out and get the job done. The reality is that Andy is one of the few players with the ability to change his game.' ...

... 'I never wanted to retire and be left thinking, "what if?",' he said.  'I always believed that if you want something you have to do it now, because a career can end in a millisecond. I'm not looking for a gig, not soliciting business, but if I'm involved with anyone I'm not interested in rankings, I'm interested in winning.'

He brought that philosophy to Roddick, and during their 21-month alliance from the summer of 2006 the American rediscovered his zest to make the US Open final after just weeks together.

Connors said: 'If I learned a lot, one thing never changed - if I'm involved, with my reputation on the line, there's no messing around. It's a serious business. If it's Andy Roddick, or Andy Murray, I'd want him to win more. That's what I put into anything I do.  Tennis is not rocket science. A couple of tweaks would make a world of difference to Andy.  But unless he's willing to listen, it'd be no good.

Full article: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-1372743/Former-king-Wimbledon-Jimmy-Connors-insists-Id-make-Andy-Murray-champion.html


Fine words, but according to the same article 'Larry Stefanki, currently with a fading Roddick, is said to be on Murray's shortlist of candidates. Yet respected broadcaster Cahill ... remains top of the British star's list to join him.'  And I don't know how anyone else feels about Connors, but I think he has the potential to overwhelm Murray.  What Andy seems to need, to me anyway, is an iron hand in a velvet glove approach.

My 8 year old daughter watched the match with me and called it in game 3!! If she could see it, why can't Andy's "team" see it? Did they sit down and analyze the replay, watch the mistakes he made and try to learn form it? Apparently none of them had any desire to review the match and adjust his attitude, so he plods along........
