he is good on clay but i think it takes him longer to adjust/ get into it..anyway i am not his coach so thats that
on we go..its time to run up and down miami beach (theres plenty of it).
as a women said in the 1967 film 'TONY ROME' with frank sinatra..
"Miami beach..20miles of sand looking for a city, 20miles of pure jerks",
not that murray is a jerk, i just remembered that quote..bwahahahah.
The reason his ranking isn't better aren't smaller events. He has to do better in Masters to improve his ranking and you can't substitute those for 250s. That's why he plays less events to prepare better for those that really matter. I'm sure he will train on clay in Miami though.
He HAS to play 4 500s (or 3 and MC), so I'm sure he will, unless he's injured.
4 Slams + 9 Masters (MC is confirmed) + 3/4 500s (likely: Barcelona, Tokyo, Basel/Valencia) + Brisbane + Queens = 18/19 events
