Murray can be a Major star

from The Sun online

ANDY MURRAY has been tipped to bag a glut of Major titles.

The world No 3 begins his grass-court season at the newly-named Aegon Championships, which begin at Queen's Club in London today.

And ex-Wimbledon champ Stefan Edberg, who will star at the Masters Tennis at the Royal Albert Hall in December, insisted: "Murray could win all of the Grand Slam titles out there".

"The clay courts and the French Open will be the toughest for him - but he could still do it".

"The Australian Open, the US Open and Wimbledon, especially with the home-crowd, are all definitely possible for Murray".

"It is now about winning one of them and, once he has done that, he will be able to win more". "You have to crack it first. Getting the first one is the hard bit for someone like Andy, he just needs a bit of luck".

"It's like Ivan Lendl. He was in his seventh year as a professional before he finally won a Grand Slam title and he lost in four Slam finals before he cracked it".

"When he finally won one, it was the start for him".

"Lendl went on to win seven more Grand Slam titles, eight in total - even more than McEnroe - and become world No1. I think Andy Murray could do the same thing".
