Finally, a Great British tennis player

Any fans of tennis will know that Britain has failed to produce a truly-great tennis player for quite some time. Certainly not in my lifetime anyway. Well, now young Scot, Andy Murray, looks set to be the first Brit to win one of the Grand Slam titles as his form continues to improve and the trophy cabinet becomes full.

Ok, so he is British but he isn’t English so many Scots will probably claim him as their own rather than share him with us English underachievers. Henman and Rusedski were very good players but always fell just short at the vital moment. Let’s hope the same doesn’t happen to Andy. At least we know he isn’t lacking in confidence…

Is Maradona the right man for the job?

It had been rumoured in the media that the great Diego Armando Maradona is to make a comeback, this time not as a player, but as coach for the Argentina national football team. Maradona was a technically-gifted, committed and exceptional footballer, possibly the best ever to play the game, but what sort of coach would he be?

Since the announcement that the little genius will be taking control of the likes of Crespo, Messi and Tevez – football fans all over the world will be keen to see what he has to offer. As a player and a captain, no-one can get near Maradona in Argentina’s history so he has a lot of work to do if he is to surpass his playing achievements as a manager.

Watch the best goal ever scored and wait for Maradona to work his magic as the coach of his beloved country. If he fails, then the secret to a great manager definitely isn’t football ability.

Good luck Diego, but fingers crossed we don’t meet in the World Cup 2010.
