I think he can do it. There, I just added to the hype. Murray should avoid the media, blogs included.
Well it didn't do him any harm in the end! I think with Lendl in his camp he couldn't have a better character to help him deal with it.
Murray was speaking fairly recently about how he enjoys talking with other sportsmen, particularly boxers, about how they cope with the pressure. Some of the stuff was fairly interesting - such as Mike Tyson telling him that he was often full of fear in the dressing room before a fight, but by the time he stepped into the ring he thought he was invincible. Murray's obviously trying to capture the same attitude when he steps on to the court, and he's definitely going to need that come Sunday.
Anyway even though I hope Murray wins, it'd be a great story for Federer if he took the title as well. Either way it should be a good final.
