Murray bows out of Indian Wells « on: March 12, 2006, 11:19 PM »

Britain's Andy Murray lost in three sets to world number five Nikolay Davydenko in the second round of the Indian Wells event in California.

He played some excellent points which I wouldn't in the slightest criticize. If he got his service game better there is no doubt he will beat the top ten consistently.

Davydenko came out aggressively and broke the 18-year-old Scot three times in the opening set to win it 6-1.

But Murray hit back with a break at the beginning of the second set and went on to level the match.

But the Russian broke in the opening game of the decider and another break secured a 6-1 3-6 6-3 victory.

Murray said:
I didn't play (my) best but I gave 100%.

I'm not going to play my best every week because I'm too young. I fought hard and he didn't make too many mistakes.

He has some of the best groundstrokes in the game. He doesn't give away any cheap points.

Unlucky he put up a good fight, maybe this challenger he is playing in this week, will help his game more for the next masters series event in miami. I think he knows what he should improve and thats his first serves, I think thats what let him down today but other than that he played some excellent points which I wouldn't in the slightest critisize him atall, if he got his service game better there is no doubt he will beat the top ten consistently and show what such a good player he is =D>.

A bigger thanks for the article Laura, this is an article I found out below the Henman article:

This is about an up and coming star Dan Evans, he sounds promising :   http://www.timesonline.co.uk/article/0,,5205-2076639,00.html

The atrticle also mentions Daniel Cox, he is more promising. I checked out his Atp profile. He is really young, born on 28th September 1990 and already has  a Futures win under his belt. Hope to hear bigger things from him soon.

I agree, there are quite a few countries.
Many of these guys will remain where they are, but some amongst these are names to watch out for.
All the guys in top 300 should be good. Del Potro is really highly rated.
Also there is Cilic, what a player this guy is turning out to be. He was born in September 1988 but has already posted a win on the tour and earned a Davis Cup cap. Also dont forget he beat our very own Andy in the French Open Juniors semis last year.
Donald Young is really a pampered person. I dont know what the American Tennis federation is playing at giving him a wildcard in Grand Slams when he usually gets knocked out in the first round in Challengers.

Other than Andy, the only Brit out there is Andrew Kennaugh. He is currently on a career high 725 and I hope to hear more from him soon.
