Default Well done Jamie Baker

Brilliant work from the Scot to make the main draw at the Aussie Open. He has been drawn against Nadal-slayer Lucas Rosol, so hopefully there will be a bit of interest around a match that is definitely winnable for him! He has fought back from an illness a few years back to get here, and so deserves it, qualifying is brutal. Also revealing to see he's another one like Ross Hutchins who classes Andy Murray as a close friend. I maintain Murray is the most normal and grounded of the superstar players. Anyway a great result, and it appears time spent at Murray's training camp has helped him. I liked this extract from the article:-

Asked if Murray's coach, Ivan Lendl, had offered him any advice, Baker said: "He just says, 'Go out and win, go out and kill the guy'. That's his advice, and not as nicely as that either!"
