The last British to capture a title at a Grand Slam is Fred Perry. For at least 70 years, no one had ever followed his footsteps. The last British to ever reached a Grand Slam final is none other Greg Rusedski in 1997. Tim Henman, more popular than Rusedski, never past a semi-finals at a Grand Slam. After Henman retired from the game, the existence of Andy Murray is considered to be the British hope to win a Grand Slam. He already reached the final of US Open 2008, but fell short. And his performance in 2009 season, is only but a shadow of yesteryear. Will 2010 season be Andy Murray's breakthrough and finally win the coveted Grand Slam title? Will Britain's unsung hero is Andy Murray?

Andy Murray is the perfect new breed English tennis player. He flatters to deceive at the big stage. He is one of the players to have a better win record against both Nadal and Federer. Yet, when it comes to big tournaments he chokes and loses matches which he should be winning easily. I just think he would be another Henman, get the crowds crazy till the semis and then lose out yet again. Cheers! Ram

HE IS NOT ENGLISH. Sorry for shouting but he is Scottish, it is an incredible insult to call a Scot English. He is a lot better than Henman and fyi Rusedski is a Canadian who took British citizenship.

We are not fighting here! We are sharing ideas, my opinion and your opinion, for us to have a better understanding of a certain topic. I know that Murray is a Scottish and Rusedski is a Canadian who acquire British citizenship and both are representing Great Britain. Their success is Great Britain's success... We are not discussing here what is the citizenship of these two talented player because we all know they are representing one country, Great Britain. Let's discuss if Andy Murray will be Great Britain's next unsung hero or he's just a promise?
