Murray - too good to hurry
I know he's Scottish, but then so again is Colin Walsh and Sweaty Balmer, but after yesterday's and Saturday's performance against Rafa Nadal, I'm certainly going to be cheering Andy Murray on tonight in the US Open final
. New Yorkers I am sure will be cheering on Federer, although without the final many craved and an unexplained revised start time of 5pm, a few Brits (such as New York Addick
) might fill some vacated seats to support the 21-year old.
Andy Murray and his personality is certainly not everyone's cup of tea, and blimey does the boy need a shave, but Greg Rusedski (US Open runner up in 1997) was Canadian and Murray's birthplace Glasgow is slightly closer to south London than Pietermaritzburg, the birthplace of Kevin Pietersen, so I'm in.
I love watching Federer, the bloke is class, but Murray is proving that he has the range of shots, and athleticism plus a new found calmness and resolution to win a grand slam and that might well be tonight.
The timing is not great for me though as I have a client dinner at 7pm, which also coincides with our first Bermuda visitor. She is one-half of the couple we first met in Chicago almost two years ago, and we have since spent time together in New York, London and Houston, so it will be good to host her here in Bermuda until she leaves on Thursday night.
