    Telegraph - US Open champion Novak Djokovic's rise to greatness down to steeliness and 'best backhand ever'
    "The classic example was the service return he produced on match point down again Federer in Saturday’s semi-final. Andy Murray was asked about this gamble on Saturday night, and described it as “unbelievable ... It’s one of those where he just went for it. Out of 10 you’ll probably make two or three”"

    Thanks AA - great to hear Andy so positive and why shouldn't he? 4 semi-finals or better in the last 4 GS tournaments - the only other player to have done that this year is Djokovic. Good, too, to see that he has set himself a goal for the end of the year - hopefully it will give him focus now that the Majors have finished.

    This article says more or less the same thing:

    http://www.express.co.uk/posts/view/271378/Andy-Murray-I-ll-slam-all-those-doubters

    With Federer waning and Nadal looking vulnerable - I firmly believe that Andy and Djoko will dominate men's tennis for the next few years.

    Poor Andy ! No sooner was the last ball played in the doubles but the commentators were piling up the pressure for 2012 Davis cup ties.
    Inevitable, I suppose. But I do think it is so unfair to point out that Rafa etc all play Davis Cup - Spain, France, Serbia have all got strength in depth if necessary. If GB are going to win their ties it means Andy absolutely has to win his 2 singles.
    Pressure or what ????

    With both Rafa and Novak obviously against the DC scheduling and Rafa virtually threatening a boycott, it just may take the pressure off Andy.

    He obviously enjoys playing when he is fit but these guys have such a horrendous schedule, and it obviously caught up with him yesterday. When I think that footballers get upset if they have to play twice in a week for 90 minutes I could scream.
