    Andy murray beats Roger Federer in cincinnati

    how far can he go.
    Already up to 21 in the world, beat henman in round 1 for the second time in less thatnj a week and has now inflicted upon Federer his first loss in 55 hard court matches.

    I think he'll be top 10 by the end of the season.


    Brilliant Murray outplays Federer
    Andy Murray
    Murray's confidence will be sky high after beating Federer
    Andy Murray pulled off the biggest win of his career, beating Roger Federer 7-5 6-4 in the Cincinnati Masters.

    The teenager became only the second player to beat Federer this year, and it was the first time the Swiss had lost before the final for 18 events.

    Federer was far from his fluent best, but an inspired Murray took full advantage, breaking serve seven times.

    The Scot has struggled to serve out in recent matches, but had no such trouble as he completed his straight sets win.

    The Scot hired Brad Gilbert an American coach 3 weeks ago. Coincides exactly with the rise in form.

    It certainly does AO.
    Money very well spent by the LTA, i reckon.

    Henman was never going to be the real deal, solid though he was.
    This guy, with the right coaching could go to the top.
    Still only 19.

    Nope.
    Murray couldn't afford the 500,000 salary yet, so the LTA employed him to take care of Murray and to work as head coach for the brits.

    Canny move.

    Will the Scot be the first Brit to win a tennis championship since 1578?

    It's looking good at the moment.

    Personally I hate tennis, but I hope that Andy Murray becomes champion of the world because he was born on the same piece of continental crust as me and I'm shallow like that.

    Marmite - you forgot about Virginia Wade. Remember her? 1977 I think it was - Jubilee year.

    You have to admit that female tennis players usually have bloody nice legs.
