ANDY MURRAY has warned the superstars of world tennis that he fears no-one going into 2006.
The awesome 18-year-old heads for the Australian Open early in the New Year on the back of a magnificent breakthrough year in which he rose from 400 to 65 in the world rankings.
Murray also deposed Tim Henman as the nation's darling at Wimbledon with a string of spectacular giant killings before beating Henman himself in a symbolic changing of the guard later in the year.
Now the Scot insists:
I'm not going to go into 2006 fearing anybody. I've got a lot of good experience to take with me. I've played against some of the best in the world.
A few people have said I've had lucky draws in tournaments, but I've had a lot of good wins.
In the matches he has lost he has never been outclassed. Against former Australian Open champion Thomas Johansson at Queen's he was a game from victory in the final set.
