Australian Open: Will Andy Murray Finally Win A Grand Slam?

Andy Murray battled back from being a set down and 5-4 down to knock David Ferrer out of the Australian Open earlier today with a four sets victory over the seventh seed, booking his place in the final for the second year in a row.

With both Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer out of the Australian Open, the latter knocked out by Novak Djokovic, Murray's opponent in the final, there has never been a better chance for Andy Murray to win his first Grand Slam and muscle his way back into the top four, but can he finally do it? I will certainly be keeping everything crossed for him!


After two recent Grand Slam final losses to Federer, including last year's Australian Open Final, Murray must be feeling that now is his chance.

Although Murray is 4-3 down in head to head's with Djokovic, he is 3-2 up on the hard courts so that should give him a little confidence. It won't be an easy match though and anyone who puts Federer out will be hard to overcome. But surely it is now Murray's time? We Brit's really can't take the disappointment anymore.

So I am going to lay it on the line and say Murray will come back to Britain as the Australian Open champion AND win the Sports Personality of the Year award later in the year.

So come on Murray, you can do it. Show us some muscle!

What do you think?

So the hopes of a Brit winning a Grand Slam are on hold until another tournament. Again. Murray was completely outclassed by a Djokovic who looks to be at the top of his game. His ability to turn even the most seemingly hopeless return into a winner left Murray facing up to his 3rd Grand Slam final defeat. I still believe Murray's time will come though.
