You know it's been a long time since Britain produced a tennis star of reasonable quality when the Beeb glorifies the performance of a Scot. To be fair, Andrew Murray got into the Thailand Open thanks to a wild card (Henman pulled out) and must've played extremely well to reach the final of a tournament featuring Roger Federer. It still remains to be seen whether Murray is just another Jeremy Bates (remember him?) or an actual Fred Perry.

Gotta give it to the Beeb though for unearthing this golden nugget:

"Despite the loss, Murray will now be ranked inside the world's top 70. At the same age, Federer reached number 64."

Meanwhile, Federer wins his 24th straight final and is well on course to crush Thomas Muster's record of consective victories. What a player. If only he was born a few years earlier. Imagine a rivalry between him and Sampras...

I am curious though, what are your thoughts on who would've been better had they played together longer? Or who is better.
