Murray mania hits Las Vegas « on: February 28, 2006, 05:01 AM »

Within 20 minutes of Andy Murray finishing his practice session at Las Vegas's Darling Tennis Center yesterday, the pen he was using to sign autographs had run dry and it seemed that every child in Nevada had a picture of himself or herself alongside the young man the local paper referred to as "the hottest thing in tennis".

Murray could not have been more obliging as he scribbled his name on ball after ball, placed his arm around shoulder after shoulder and posed with his best cheesy grin for snaps. His days of wandering around tournaments miles from home, as anonymous as all the other hitting partners and juniors, are long gone.

Ripping through Andy Roddick and then another former US Open champion, Lleyton Hewitt, to win a first ATP Tour title, as Murray did in San Jose nine days ago, attracts the attention of even the most parochial American tennis fan.

Since I won, the Americans have taken a little bit of notice and I am getting more support. I got good support in San Jose and I really enjoyed it over there.

Thats good to hear. He needs the support over there if we wants to continue being successful on the North American circuit.
