After being No. 3 and 4 in the world for a long, long time, Murray has been attacked by papers, fans, and critics for not having won a single slam.
Murray has a great game which enables him to play at such a high level. His huge groundstrokes are very effective; his backhand is one of the best in the game. Murray has a big, consistent serve and excellent footwork. He has also shown that he can cap points off with great play at the net.
The Scot has been to three grand slam finals, and two of them were at the Australian Open. Last year, he lost to Federer in straight sets, and the same thing happened this year, except instead of Roger, it was Novak Djokovic, who started this year on a roll.
The third final was the US Open of 2008, where he put together a great run, only to lose in straights to the Swiss Maestro again.
Because of bad performances in finals, Murray has a reputation for choking in the final, and yesterday, he admitted to nervousness in his first round match against Indian Somdev Devvarman.
Can Andy Murray win his first slam?
