Tennis - With the grand slam monkey off his back, many expect Andy Murray to go and win more slams. And seven time grand slam champion John McEnroe is certainly one of them.

Speaking at a press event to launch the Brodies Champions of Tennis Event, McEnroe commented, "The expectation would be for him to follow up and at least win another one this year. That’s the thing once you get one under your belt – presumably there’s less pressure than there was originally.

“He seems supremely fit, it looks to me that he’s coming to his prime and, mentally, he’s tougher than ever. And dare I say, Ivan Lendl [Murray’s coach] has done a very solid job with him. So when you put all that into the equation, it would be surprising if he were not to win at least a few more.

“He’s got some obstacles, [Novak] Djokovic being the most obvious one. And hopefully [Rafael] Nadal will be back – it looks like he’s coming back and playing like he’s capable of, and that would be great for tennis.

“Then somebody could come along that we haven’t seen yet and fill that void. Everyone’s waiting for the next guy.”

Murray is currently ranked no. 3 in the world and lost to Juan Martin del Potro in the quarter finals of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wels this week.
