Will Andy Murray win a Grand Slam title in 2016?


Hey All,

Now the 2015 season is over, I'm wondering what 2016 will bring for Andy Murray. 

I'm thinking he should be able to add to his two Grand Slam titles.

I was on Google earlier and came across an article suggesting he will be a 2016 Grand Slam title winner, take a look!

It would be better surely if the Andy Murray picture, was under the Andy Murray text, instead of being in the Stan Wawrinka section.

True, but at least he has a picture, which is more than the others!

Shock!  Horror!  Andy's prepared to pull out of the AO, should Kim go prematurely into labour in the course of it, according to two "exclusive" articles by Stuart Fraser in today's Daily Fail.  jaw-drop.gif  They both cover similar ground, but also offer slightly different snippets of information (e.g. that he's planning to attend BBC SPotY in Belfast on Sunday before returning to London for a training block with Gilles Müller.  He's also, apparently, looking for a new assistant coach to replace Jonas Björkman) &different sets of photos.  I must say, he scrubs up quite nicely. wink

So that's one he may not win this year.

More on Andy's coaching arrangements courtesy of the Beeb:

Murray retains Mauresmo as coach

Jonas Bjorkman leaves coaching setup

Russell Fuller, BBC tennis correspondent on Radio 5 live

Andy Murray had been very keen to retain the services of Amelie Mauresmo but was adamant she would need to commit to at least 20 weeks of the year - so it is a huge boost she has signed up just four months after becoming a mother. 

Murray still has a huge amount of time for Jonas Bjorkman but the relationship was not an unqualified success.   

Murray won the Masters event in Montreal after Mauresmo went on maternity leave, but was beaten in the fourth round of the US Open and his on court demeanour has at times been unduly negative. 

The new assistant coaching role may end up as a full-time position - in the way Dani Vallverdu complemented Ivan Lendl so well.

Yes, but baby more likely to be late than early statistically so that one can be filed under crossing the bridge if it arises; going home for the birth with an AO title newly under his belt would be nicer timing :)

I'd say Wimbledon will be his best chance.
Be surprised if his mind is entirely focused on Aussie at the end of Jan, French never his best and us open end of very busy summer schedule.
I wouldn't discount any, though

I actually fancy his chances in Australia provided Jr. does not make an early entrance. He has always done well there and his biggest problem seems to have been getting too much inside his head when he makes the final, particularly in 2015. The imminent arrival of the baby may actually relax him and allow him to play to his best because he may not care as much about the result as in previous years.

Are we counting the Olympics too? Having not been able to watch most of their matches over recent years I'm still not sure how much Djokovic's recent dominance over Murray is psychological but it seems that it's a lot to do with Murray having to play a bit more high risk low margin tennis and wether he pulls that off on the day. If he could get an early blow in on that front in Aus if they play there again and Murray can sneak the first set or two I think he can finally win it. Any way he could win Aus (which would obviously answer this thread early) would surely make the whole situation look much rosier, otherwise it seems likely to work out quite similar to last season with Djokovic winning their big matches on hard, Murray being the more likely victor if he faces Fed and the bigger unknowns being how Murray would match up with Djokovic on grass and maybe also clay (I like to remember that Murray has won all 5 sets he's played against Djokovic at Wimbledon which has to give him that little bit better chance of winning a couple of early sets against him still. If Murray at any stage loses a close set to Djokovic he seems likely collapse and give too much away before crossing the finish line.

All that considered I give him a 60 % chance if getting at least one of the five.

It will be interesting to see how he fares against Nadal and Wawrinka too if they find form in a major. It's a bit of a shame he didn't get to face the other big 5 players more last year given how much kept winning then losing to Djokovic.

 I think Djokovic's recent dominance over Murray is to do with a certain mr Boris Becker.  He is a very good coach and holds a lot of influence.   A coach/captain makes such a difference as Leon Smith has shown.  I'm not sure GB would have won the Davis Cup without Leon being the captain. ( even with Andy being at the top of his game ) .

Hey All,

What do you think is Andy Murray's chances of winning a Grand Slam champion in 2016?

Well, I was looking online earlier and came across an article that discusses his chances so thought I would drop it here.

I think it's about 50/50. Oh, I'll go YES.

I am sure that most of the replies that you get, will be exactly the same as in the other thread you started very recently with the same title and a link to the same article.

But to answer your main question - YES.
