He won the set and the match. Also beat someone in the third round and is into the second week of the french open for the first time of his tennis career. Pretty good considering his age! Final won't be possible as there is a beast of a tennis player in his half of the table. His time will come albeit not on clay.

I think the thing to consider at the French Open is the surface. I don't think Murray seriously see's himself winning his first grand slam on his least favoured surface. If he makes it through to Nadal the outcome will almost definately be Nadal winning. At Wimbledon or New York however i wouldn't be so confident in picking Nadal over Murray this year, just i don't think Murray will do it on clay.

He has quite a tough game today against Cilic who is seeded 13th.

I hope he loses, don't like him, I've got nothing against Scottish people except for them being tight.

Bit of a stereotype there. I'm sure not every Scot is tight. If you think they are your living in the dark ages or have never been to Scotland.

I am scottish and I am tight. But everyone is tight relative to you. You are mr fashion faux pas, paying insane amounts of money only to sell them on at a colossal loss.
But back to tennis already. Murray will win because he is Scottish and we are far superior human beings in terms of both intellect and athletic ability.
