Let's check in with Andy Murray, shall we?


So what's up with Andy Murray these days?

After tumbling out of the top 20 after his second-round defeat to Mario Ancic in Miami, the Scot decided to add another coach to his already large entourage for the clay-court swing: two-time French Open finalist Alex Corretja. Andy believes Alex's experience on the dirt will translate to his game saying,
I met him a couple of times last year, had lunch with him at one of the tournaments at the end of the year in Madrid and I thought he'd be a good guy to work with. Purely because I haven't played much on the clay lately and he's got a lot of experience and will teach me again how to do the things I used to do on the clay.
If his fitness and head are in check, Andy should be a factor through Roland Garros.
In other news, the 20-year old announced he will be participating in the controversial Beijing Olympics. Though his fellow Brit, Tim Henman, endured a hectic torch relay this past weekend Andy isn't concerned with the political atmosphere surrounding these Games:
For me, the Olympics is more about the sport. I'm just concentrating and looking forward to playing in the tennis. I'm not a politician.
