6th time lucky…Will Murray finally master Melbourne in 2017?

Melbourne is where it all begins. Season after season the worlds top players arrive in the heat of Australia ready to start the season for a bang but for one player crossing the finishing line has been tough but could Andy Murray be set to master Melbourne on his sixth attempt.

2017 Australian Open marks 11 years since Andy made his debut down under and making the final in 5 of his 10 appearances is pretty exceptional but now it’s time to be the winner.

Andy goes into the Australian Open as world number one, that comes with pressure. There is an expectation on you to get to the final and win these tournaments and this is where you go from being close to being champion.

We saw Andy finish 2016 on a 26 match winning streak which is remarkable especially winning all 5 of his matches at the World Tour Finals shows right now he is a step ahead of the rest.

You have to give credit to Andy having the fight year after year and to get to the final time and time again and to end up disappointed but never let that effect him year after year is a testament to his character and his professionalism.

The draw could have a big say, obviously Novak will be on the other side of the draw and it will be interesting to see where former champions Nadal and Federer will be placed having missed the end of the season with injury
