When columnist Des Kelly teased Murray about Scotland's absence from the 2006 World Cup, Murray, unaware of the consequences, sarcastically said, “I'll be supporting anyone but England.” Unfortunately, another journalist fabricated a story out of the comments suggesting Murray was anti-English, Des Kelly subsequently has pleaded with the public not to take the comments out of context.
Mighty-Murray's 2009 success -
In 2009, Murray set his caravan rolling in style when he made players like Federer and Nadal bite dust at the exhibition tournament in Abu Dhabi. He went on to win in Rotterdam, Miami, Queen's Club, and Montreal before reaching the Cincinnati semi finals where he lost to the eventual champion Roger Federer and failed to defend his 2008 title. At Queen's Club, he became the first British winner in 71 years en route to his 12th ATP Title.
Murray's finest performance came at the Rogers Cup in Montreal where he beat an in-form giant-killer Juan Martin Del Potro to clinch his second Masters title of the year. With such an enormous confidence, Murray was touted as the favourite to win the first Grand Slam title of his career at the U.S. Open. Unfortunately, his road was cut short by a spirited Marin Cilic, also one of the biggest upsets of the year.
The last quarter of 2009 did not prove to be too fruitful for the Scot, who suffered with a series of injuries that kept him out of action for a formidable amount of time. His successful return was marked by a title triumph in Valencia, followed by some impressive results at the season-ending Championships at the O2 Arena in London. Although to the home fans' dismay, Murray failed to reach the last four by a narrow margin and returned home, still without a major triumph on the circuit.
Despite a below-expectation showing at the Grand Slams, Murray managed to win the most number of tournaments in 2009 by leading the charts with 6 titles.
The Road Ahead -
Without a doubt, Murray is one of the most gifted players of his generation. The Grand Slam success may have eluded him so far but it is surely in the offing for the Scot, who is one of the few players to have better head-to-head records against Sporting Giants like Roger Federer. Only time will tell whether Britain will have a home-grown champion at the prestigious Wimbledon Lawns or not. The tennis world is waiting for the coronation of Andy Murray at stages that suit his enormous capabilities and talent, and the Scot more determined than ever to achieve his dreams.
