It's about time the Andy Murray myth was exposed, and let this newspaper be the first to give it to you straight. He's an overhyped no-hoper, about as likely to win a grand slam title as the Scottish football team is to win the World Cup, and the sooner he gives up tennis and takes up the bagpipes the better
This is written, you understand, in the lad's best interests, in that he's never going to become the Great British hope we'd like him to be if he keeps reading nice things about himself. He more or less said so himself in Melbourne on Tuesday, pointing the finger at the British media for suggesting that he might actually become fairly good at the game.
Murray had only one theme in the debriefing room after his straight-sets defeat by Juan Ignacio Chela, of Argentina, and that was the intolerable stress of being expected to win a tennis match or two. After raising the topic for the third time, there was a mild protest from one of the hacks, to which Murray responded: "If you people think you're not putting pressure on me, that's fine. I'll forget about it." End of interview.
