We have a strong player now.
Andy Murray reaches the final of the San Jose tournament after defeating Andy roddick 7-5 7-5.

He faces Lleyton Hewitt, so that'll be a funny match, as both there trademark expression goes: "COME ONNNNNn!!!!!"

Andy seems to be the business. From what I remember from my school days he is a bit of a dick. His brother is nice, which is why hes not out there beating the likes of Roddick etc.

The 18-year-old Scot, who also beat Andy Roddick in the last four, rallied from a set down to win 2-6 6-1 7-6.


Good going!

Very impressive from Murray.
I watched his match with Roddick and thought he was great.
If he out performs Rusedski and Henman in Memphis,he will become the no.1 British player.

That's good stuff :)
I reckon that he will overtake the former British tennis players and enter the top 30 before the next grand slam, ooh, the French open.
He can compete against the very best in the game, no doubt. I have complete confidence in his ability to beat someone over 3 sets. The average recommended age for weight training in men is 19, so perhaps we'll see his fitness increases dramatically over the next year or so.
And as he says, his favourite slam is the US Open, so that'll annoy Roddick :p

He has the potential to be worth that, from what I read.

Well,Murray beat Hewitt and won San Jose.

He lost yesterday in Memphis to Robin Soderling but he is set to become new Brtiish number when the rankings are released on Monday.

Murray does have one hell of an ugly mug though. Might wanna get that fixed.
