Murray looks for Miami boost

Andy Murray has had his fans up and down so many times already this season.  His form this year has at best been patchy. He has played some of his absolute best tennis to overcome Kei Nishikori in the fifth set of the Davis Cup rubber in Birmingham yet was dismantled by world number one Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open final. At Indian Wells in the Californian desert he suffered a third round loss to Argentinian Federico Delbonis.It will be a hugely disappointing loss for World Number 2 Murray and one that will take some time to get over. Having been man handled in the first set and looking dead and buried in the second, Murray fought back to take the second and was a break up in the third. Big hitting Delbonis was not for giving up and he displayed great courage to  force a final set tiebreak. Murray once again went ahead in the tiebreak yet was pegged back and eventually made a return unforced error to hand Delbonis the match/

Murray seems to have been unable to build any kind of momentum this season. He openly admits that he does not like the conditions of the Palm Springs courts with the dry slow hard courts. His record at Indian Wells is quite poor for a two time grand slam champion. Murray heads eastwards to Key Biscayne Florida in search of some form and match wins to improve his confidence. Miami plays entirely different from most events on tour. It is called the Grand Slam of Latin America as many of the crowd come from nearby South America. Players are challenged by the incredible heat and humidity. Win in Miami and you will have earned it!

A confident Andy Murray is one who can show his full array of shots. Murray at full flight is really a sight to behold, he can drop shot, lob, hit cross court and down the line. Sometimes he can even play games with his opponents as he toys with them on court. If you would like to check out Andy Murrays chances why not take a look at what the experts think at the UK’S leading betting website. The World Number 2 would like a promising fortnight with as many matches under his belt as possible. Heading into the clay court season in April, Murray needs to rediscover his match sharpness and his ability to come through those tough encounters.

With Federer out of action injured and Rafael Nadal currently on a decline, Andy Murray seems to be the only player on tour that can take it to world number one Novak Djokovic. We need Andy to rediscover his best form as soon as possible and get those match wins on the board. There can be no doubt that Djokovic will prioritise the French Open and the Olympic Games over every other event in 2016. Tennis needs Andy Murray to step up the challenge that Djokovic has set. The next few weeks promise to be incredibly interesting indeed!
