Magic Eight Ball, will Andy Murray ever win a major championship? “Outlook not so good.”
I defend this man to all my tennis buddies, saying he’s been to finals and it sometimes takes a while for a champion to find his footing. However, it is becoming more and more difficult to defend my position, although I still believe he has the talent and tenacity to do it, I won’t be shocked if it never happens. Murray’s loss to Kevin Anderson of South Africa 6-3, 6-1 does no bode well for the Scotsman going into his favorite major, the United States Open later this month. If he can keep his head about him, while others are losing theirs, if he can meet with triumph and disaster and treat those two imposters just the same, well, maybe, just maybe, the 24 year old can hold aloft a major trophy. Otherwise, he will fade into obscurity as so many other top-fivers who never quite sealed the deal: Gene Mayer, Guillermo Coria, Eddie Dibbs, Marcelo Rios, and Raul Ramirez.
