Andy Murray

Poor Andy:

"For the most part in my career, when I had conversations with potential coaches it came off most of the time.

"Whereas this time round, I got turned down by a lot of coaches so that was obviously difficult to deal with."

Not easy, getting turned down - and shows you that it affects everyone, even Andy

Anyway, back with Lendl

Andy's thoughts on Sue Barker extracted from an article by Stu Fraser & John Westerby in Friday's Times headed "Andy Murray rents London flat to avoid Wimbledon delays":

Meanwhile, Murray has paid tribute to the BBC's Wimbledon presenter Sue Barker as she prepares to step down after 30 years. The pair developed a close friendship after becoming acquainted through interviews and documentaries. "Away from the camera, I always loved chatting to Sue," Murray, 35, said. "It was like chatting to my mum, or a relative almost. She has that warmth.

Usually you do interviews on the TV and it doesn't always feel the most natural to me. But with her, a lot of the time I felt like she was able to make you forget about that.  When I would go to the studio at Wimbledon, she made it feel more relaxed. It was like you're chatting to someone in the living room or whatever. That was what I really loved about her. She also seems like a genuinely nice person. I've watched her on the TV growing up, whether that was at Wimbledon or on a Question of Sport.

She was obviously an amazing tennis player [Barker won the 1976 French Open]. A lot of people maybe don't realise that about her because she has become so good at what she does now. To now be known as something different is pretty, pretty cool."

The article is inevitably behind a paywall.  If I could remember how that Archive Today thingy worked, I'd use it to provide a link.  hmm

It was my birthday last week, last Friday, and my very lovely wife bought me (us?!) vouchers for a stay at Andy's Cromlix Hotel, which is very nice, thank you very much.

Our daughter is at Edinburgh, as I have said, so she reckoned it would be close and we could stay and visit her (not realising that Dunblane area to Edinburgh is a good hour and a quarter away!).

Nonetheless, something very nice to look forward to. I wonder if Andy will be our barman when we stay?

This has to be one of the most amazing stories about someone who watched Andy win his 2nd Wimbledon.

I came across the article independently a few minutes ago & came on here with a view to posting the link, onlhy to fnd that you'd already done so a good few hours ago, Bob!  I agree with you.  The fact that Nazanin actually watched the 2016 final from her cell in Evin prison beggars belief - & says a lot about the pulling power of Wimbedon outside the UK!

 Whatever Andy would prefer to prioritise  to my mind he doesn't make our best Davis Cup team anyway, whether on clay or hard. That best team is the one selected vs Colombia.

 Agreed but I suspect he made it easier for Leon by not being available , Im guessing of course

Andy finished 2022 as GB#4.  Some info on how he got there.

Andy made two finals in 2022, his first since 2019, but was unable to convert either to a title.  It was enough however to get him a Top50 WR for the first time since 2018. ATP250 tournaments were where he found most success in the year, contributing almost 45% of his ranking points. Along with Jack, he played the fewest tournaments across the year (22). His DNS tournament was the French Open, meaning he ended the year with 3 zero pointers in his counting tournaments; only Jay finished the year with more.
