Success stateside

Smiling at last!

With Federer crashing out in the quarters and  Nadal still out with injury, there appeared to potentially be only one man in the way of Andy Murray winning an elusive Grand Slam - the joker Djoko. Progressing to a two sets to love lead all the Scot had to do was win one more set and his dreams would be realised but who are we kidding?!  The Serb and world number one was not going anywhere taking the following two sets in 2 and 3. I have to admit at this point approaching 1.30am I decided to bail and drive home. Immediately I turned on 5Live in the car and Muzz had broken in the first game of the decider and the dream was still alive!! Listening to the whispering excitable commentators curled up in bed, it had finally happened 76 years since Fred Perry at the US Open, Murray had struck gold!! Finally he could  put all his doubters to rest as he elevated into a whole new world of tennis stardom- could this be the start of a British male dominating in tennis?
Murray is now defending his Japanese Open title and has continued his impressive run form by seeing off his Slovakian opponent in just 57 minutes in the first round. He is also featuring in the doubles with his older brother Jamie whom have now reached the quarter finals- good luck boys!
