Telegraph - Andy Murray will move into the world's top 40 when the ATP rankings are published tomorrow - just as the Sunday Telegraph predicted early last October - while Tim Henman will slip behind Greg Rusedski. The new young British No 1 has got there by his own efforts, but another changing of the guard behind the scenes will hopefully ensure that there are more Andy Murrays to follow him.

It would seem the 18-year-old Scot, so obviously a child of the new millennium, has been an inspiration to not merely the young in Britain - not to mention young lovers - but also the old blazers and buffers at the Lawn Tennis Association. Suddenly there seems to be a collective will to improve Britain's dire tennis fortunes. It was almost as if the appointment last week of a dynamic new chief executive at the LTA had been inspired by Murray's heroics in the United States the previous week.

Murray's thrilling run of success in the States finally came to an end on Friday in Memphis, the birthplace of Elvis Presley, when he was all shook up by Sweden's Robin Soderling,

Good article though all the same, I just love The Telegraph's coverage of tennis.

Lol funny bit in the Observer today on how Andy is helping to revive the Fred Perry brand.

Unfortunately it says that he was 17 when he played Nalbandian at Wimbledon and that he still uses his i-pod on court   ranting
