    That's called anticipation. He was early for the ball.

    A bit too early unforch.

    He's never practices with real tennis balls. That's just soooo last century!

    I think this was a basic training drill, minus the ball to focus on footwork, hence the cone.

    This might sound stupid but in the event that Murray wins a slam whilst Fred and Ralph are declining and Djoker can't repeat the 2011 magic will he be the transitional British champion till Oli Golding materializes....?

    Murray will end up to be the greatest Tennis player in history from Britain (open era), man or woman. Set in stone

    Looking at their history, Virginia Wade is a slam champion isn't she ? That makes her greater, doen's it ? (remember i said man or woman).

    Murray is still developing, maybe too early for him to win slams. For now he has a good forehand and good first serve (but it doesn’t go in). He needs a backhand and a solid second serve, and then maybe start developing approach game and volleys. And mental strength, and not depend on mom so much.

    I support Murray on this one. What kind of tool would rather play Wii with body motion than play real tennis? Video games are supposed to be done with controllers, not your body. Your body is for real life. Wii with body motion is just a cheap imitation of real life.
