Murray looks relaxed and ready again and again

Murray looks relaxed and ready again and again

ANDY Murray smiled coyly as he swayed side to side with hands deep inside the pockets of his Team GB tracksuit top with brother Jamie, saying: Š—“I havenŠ—Èt lost it, thatŠ—Ès for sure!Š—

The British No.1, egged on by his older sibling and Team GB teammate, made the tongue-in-cheek boast about his footballing rather than tennis skills.

The double Wimbledon and Olympic champion had netted a long-range goal in a five-a-side match in Glasgow between GB squad members which was compared to the David BeckhamŠ—Ès effort from the halfwayline at Wimbledon 20 years ago.

He looked relaxed and re-charged in front of the BBC TV cameras. That is good news for his team as the defending champions prepared to take on Juan Martin del PotroŠ—Ès Argentina at the indoor Emirates Arena in Glasgow from Friday to Sunday (September 16-18).

Many were concerned that second seed Murray had emptied his tank of energy reserves on a tennis court as he lost to JapanŠ—Ès Kei Nishikori in the quarter-finals of the US Open last week when it had been hoped he could add to his glittering prizes in the year which has seen him produce the form of his life.

ItŠ—Ès going to be hard but I want to win all the events I can.
