Andy Murray really seems to be in the mood this year at the French Open. He showed his motivation levels once again in his last match as he clawed his way back after it looked as though, he will give into a painful back injury.
World No.4 Murray is supremely talented. His abilities and the weapons in his armor are second to none, it is due to these reasons that experts and fans have great expectations off of him. For all his talent though, he seems to lack the big match composure and has failed to convert anyone of his Grand Slam final appearances. At this year’s edition of Roland Garros, Murray has yet another chance to do what some say is his destiny.
Murray is attempting to make a comeback on tour after he withdrew from Madrid Masters a couple of weeks ago due to a back injury. Murray started the season with a title triumph in Brisbane and then reached the final of Australian Open, where he lost to Novak Djokovic. He then reached the finals of Dubai Championships and Miami Masters but lost to Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic respectively. In Barcelona he lost to Canadian Milos Raonic in straight sets. In Rome, he succumbed to Richard Gasquet in the quarterfinals after rallying past David Nalbandian in the second round in three sets. Britain’s great hope really needs to keep playing at the level he did in his previous match. If he continues to show that kind of hunger, the Scot really isn’t far away from his maiden Grand Slam title.
On the other side of court, Santiago Giraldo has had a fairly disappointing year. His best results have come in his home event at Pereira and Acapulco, both on clay. His time at the Aussie Open was short and ended in the second round. His win-loss record stands at 18-13 and he would be looking to improve on it.
They have only had one meeting up until now which was this year at the Barcelona Open. The Scot took that one easily 6-1, 6-2.
TennisEarth picks an easy win for the Scot if he stays fit that is.
