Craig,

I love your blog. I follow it closely. But I must confess I was aghast upon reading the following: "England's Andy Murray".

As a proud Scot I have to stand up and say, Andy Murray is many things (Scottish, British, European). But English, he is most certainly not.

Other than that, keep up the good work!

Paul, I don't write most of the captions. They come directly from the photo source.

That said, I will correct an error and I completely overlooked that one.

Thanks for reading!

i want to add _ PAUL

welcome.

by now you know I like to call Murray -- Mister Dinky Doo...hehe.

but i also always wanted him to POWER UP and THEN he'll be magnificent.

someone needs to continue to stand up to
Mister Magical. And Murray has done that along with Nadal .


SO ! IF he gets to face Rogie -- i hope Andy makes it 6-2 H2H....

hehe.

Wow, I have not been able to get into this tournament....but just looked at the schedule of play for Monday and there are some great match ups. Can't wait to see if Soderling can bring something to his match with Roger to make up for a lackluster final at the FO. I will definitely be tuning in tomorrow morning. Roddick/Berdych, Verdasco/Karlovic, Murray/Wawrinka.....not a bad line up on the men's side.
