Andy Murray still on form despite defeat, Rooney hopes to shine against Slovenia and South Africa present difficult challenge
14th November 2014

Andy Murray was knocked out last night by Roger Federer, who described the Swiss champion as “in a different class.” 

Tim evaluates what this means for Murray and whether this disappointing end to the season means bigger things for his career. 

Tim can’t fault Murray’s fitness and expects him to hit the ground running for January and why, despite playing in a golden age for tennis, the Scot can still challenge for grand slam titles. 

In football, England are favourites to beat Slovenia and will take a strong grip of their grip if they do. Though Tim thinks it won’t be as easy as some think, he is looking forward to seeing Rooney’s performance as he claims his golden cap. 

England face up to South Africa this weekend but after a disappointing game against New Zealand last week, things aren’t looking especially bright for the squad. However, should this game goes well, it would suggest England could still be contenders for the title in the 2015 world cup.
