Discussing Andy Murray's quest for a grand slam title.

Murray feelin’ HOT HOT HOT

twitter.  8:21pm.   30/08/10.  andy_murray:  Loving the heat in new york!  Perfect weather to see who’s put in the work.

Really?  That’s interesting, particularly as it has come from the man who crumbled after 2 sets of going mano-a-mano with Mardy ‘Mr.Ice’ Fish.

Andy will get day 3 of the US Open under way at 11am New York time (EST – which is 4pm GMT).  If he’s lucky — which he tends to be during week one — New York will have received some overnight rain.

Watching Djokovic nearly collapse halfway through his 5-set 1st round win, made me worry for Murray (unless he can win, erm, in a hurry).

The intensity of the heat at this years tournament has so far outdone the weather of recent US Open’s, and there are no signs of the temperature cooling.

As Murray’s unofficial advisor, I would seriously recommend limiting all points to no more than four shots from the 4th seed.

It’s a shame that he has to play his first match on day 3 of the tournament but, as previously mentioned, he will most certainly have to play two days on the trot, so conserving his energy is a must.

Possible solution?  A white cape (to keep the sun off his back), a large cap with visor, and dousing himself with full bottles of water between points (see Michael Madsen and the police officer in Reservoir Dogs).

Time to see who’s put the work in.
