During the London 2012 Olympics something special took place which gripped our nation and brought us all together, the first time for a long time.
We celebrated as our talented home grown sport stars broke down personal barriers as they competed against the best from around the globe to win medal after medal. In total, an unexpected haul of 65 medals (29 Golds, 17 Silver and 19 Bronze) placed us 3rd overall in the medal table and without really being aware, turned our nation into an Olympic sporting super power.
One such golden victory, which our tiny country has waited on ‘oh, so, patiently‘ over the years was some success at the highest level of tennis. Okay, many will argue that winning Gold at the Olympics is not on the same level as winning a Slam. But Andy Murray did it nonetheless and we were all that bit happier he had.

Andy Murray took centre stage at Wimbledon yesterday for his 1st round match against former World No.3 Nikolay Davydenko. Murray didn’t fancy hanging around much as he quashed his opponent with an array of match winning shots. As the Centre Court scoreboard beamed 6-1, 6-1, 6-4 in Murray’s favour – tennis fans began to get excited by Murray’s masterclass display.
But before we all get carried away let’s pinch ourselves to remember that it is only the first round. The big hitters in the Men’s competition still remain… Nadal, Federer and Djokovic barely raised a sweat either as they sauntered into the 2nd round.

Remember, Murray struggled in the French Open after requiring treatment for a back strain in his opening match, despite his injury problems Murray made it to the quarter finals where he was finally put out of his misery by David Ferrer.
In the run-up to Wimbledon, Murray was vanquished in the first round of Queen’s Club Championships to No.65 seed Nicolas Mahut – beaten convincingly 3 sets to love. Which is why his demolition job on Davydenko was greeted with such joy.
Okay his display should be enough to silence his critics for now – a 2nd round meeting awaits with either Karlovic (Croatia) and Sela (Israel)… Another blistering display by Murray might get us all even more excited and if he can keep a grip on those unforced errors then perhaps we might all start dreaming again… We shall wait, hope and see.
