Dismal Day for Andy Murray...

   Today, tennis player Andy Murray suffered another bruising defeat in the Sony Ericsson Open. Though he was not to long ago marked by tennis commentators as a player with commendable game play that could allow him to win Grand Slams, he still has yet to achieve such heights. Now a far flung number 5 player, Murray has since battled to reignite a flame that can bring spring in his game, which he bitterly lost after a defeat down under by Serbian Novak Djokovic during his quest for an Australian Open title.
   Murray's defeat today toppled another upsetting defeat which came from an American qualifier Alex Bogomolov Jr. in two sets: 6-1, 7-5. This is not the first upset the Scotsman has tasted, since last week he faced an upset by another young American player Donald Young. Though his slump is no doubt attributed to his repeated chances of a Grand Slam being chased away by tennis's greats, if Murray really wants to taste a win he needs to buckle down, play with aggression, and have an attitude to WIN.
