Murray Mania as Scot Beats Seed

Sorry, this Blog is supposed to be about Cayman, but some news off the wire is that Andrew Murray, the 18 year old Scottish tennis player who won the US Junior Open last year… just beat the #14 seed at Wimbledon to get to the 3rd round.

Let’s face it, Scotland is not known for great tennis players… but this guy is good… very good (John McEnroe rates him extremely highly)…. and he learned to play at the club where my kids played while they were evacuated to Scotland after Hurricane Ivan, so my boys have been following Andrew Murray.

Anyway, root for him against David Nalbandian in the next round…. who knows how far he can go ! Full story here

    What a game today. Andy Murray ran out of steam against Nablin .. whatever his name is, but showed great skill and potential. The crowd loved him and there is talk of him being the next Tim Henman. Let’s hope not …. lets hope he goes better than Henman and wins.

    Still no cable at my house, so we listened in to the match over the net, plus had the live scoreboard running… 2-0 up but lost 3-2 with a pulled hamstring… but wait until next year, this guy could be good… very good.
