    Berrettini wins 6-4 5-7 6-3.

    Decent workout for Murray ahead of Queen's next week.

    I hope he hasn't done any damage to himself but we always say that.
    Considering Berrettini was Wimbledon finalist last year it's a great show by Andy. He should go up the rankings quite a bit.

    I think he'll go into somewhere around 40th in the world rankings after this tournament. If he does well at Queen's next week he must be in with a chance of being seeded at Wimbledon especially with Russian players being banned - there's four Russians currently ranked above Murray so he'll automatically move above them for Wimbledon.

    Definitely into the top 50 now which, while miles from his glory days, must nevertheless give him a lot of satisfaction.

    Think he'll be due to play Berrettini again in the second round of Queens if they both make it through. So be a hard ask to go deep into the tournament at Queens.

    Yeah he is, ironically he played Berrettini in the second round last year and lost in straight sets.

    Berrettini plays Dan Evans in the first round.

    Murray should have broken at the start of 2nd set but missed a regulation volley into the open court. Made me feel better watching that.

    1-1

  12. #71
    Can we update the thread title to 2022 please? I was a bit confused there. 🤣

    Norrie levels at one set all.

    I never even noticed the title 😄

    Tight 3rd set but Murray has let Norrie off the hook on numerous occasions which might come back to bite him. He's certainly been the better player.

    Norrie breaks and will serve for the match.

  15. #74
    Norrie wins in three sets.

    Murray chucked that. So many chances missed and Norrie won that despite not playing all that well.

    Emma Radacanu is having quite a spectacular week. She's thrashed Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka in successive matches.

    Why no chance? World number 1, an olympian, won 40 odd tour titles, if there was a list being made he would most definitely be in with a shout

    Because King Kenny is Scottish, AM is obviously a very successful tennis player but he isnít (imo) the natural talent that KD was. Iím more drawn to people who are just naturally ridiculously good at their sport than people who need to work really hard to get to the top ie Messi over Ronaldo, Ronnie OíSullivan, Maradona, George Best etc.

    I'd argue that Messi has worked extremely hard over the years. O'Sullivan too (on and off, probably worked harder on the mental side as that's his main weakness).

    Talent alone doesn't cut it at the very top level of any sport these days.

    Murray is incredibly talented, but also had to work stupidly hard to get anywhere near competing with Nadal, Djokovic and Federer. I'd put him as my top Scottish sportsman ever by a distance, but I guess those things are subjective.
