Leon Smith was all praise for his superstar Andy Murray

The British skipper Leon Smith was all praise for his superstar Andy Murray who stepped up to the plate in the immensely vital tie versus France and carried the team to the Davis Cup Round of 4.

Murray’s victory over Giles Simon in the reverse singles yesterday ensured Great Britain got over the line and earned the right to take on Australia for booking a berth in the title round.

It was quite hard to see Murray winning against Simon when he had lost the opening set and then, had got broken in the second set too, but, the Scot put on great fight from there.

Not only did he manage to turn around that second set and win it in tie breaker, he, thereafter, thrashed Simon in the next two sets to finish the game off.

Murray was very tired having already played a singles and a doubles game prior to this Simon meeting and that tiredness was visible in his game.

For the initial one hour or so, he was nowhere near Simon, but, like a true fighter, he pushed himself to the limits when his body was not responding.

And, that’s why, Smith, who is a Scot himself, was so impressed. Read more »

Andy Murray reckons playing 5 set matches is not a bad thing

Andy Murray reckons playing 5 set matches is not a bad thing for the male players as it gives them a little bit of extra time to be able to get back into the contest if they haven’t necessarily got off to a great start.

There have been some talks regarding the need of the male fixtures to be decreased to 3 sets as well.

But, Murray is not voicing in favour of that. He is cool with Slam matches to be of 5 sets.

According to Murray, so many times in the past, the good players have got trailed by two sets and then, they have come back to turn it around for themselves. Had it been about 3 sets only, it would not have been possible for them to do so.

In an interview, Murray was quoted as saying, “In three sets, you’ve got to have a good start. If you don’t have that and you get behind your opponent, it becomes very hard. But, that’s not the case in Slams. You have got ample time there to make a comeback from any sort of situation.”

Murray is going to get married in a few days’ time. Read more »
