Andy Murray a Big Threat for Everyone on Grass, Says Fernando Verdasco

World No. 3 Andy Murray has played some terrific tennis lately. From two clay titles on the trot to a semifinal appearance at the prestigious French Open 2015, the Briton has proved to be a hard nut to crack for his adversaries on the dirt.

But, Murray will carry his momentum to the grass-court season as well, and that he will be a serious threat to everyone, insists veteran Spanish tennis player Fernando Verdasco.

“Andy’s had a great clay season, and he can take huge confidence and momentum from that,” Verdasco was quoted as saying by Sky Sports News.

“He has the game of course to adapt to grass pretty easily, he serves well, he returns well too, and he has a very good backhand,” the Spaniard added on the 2013 Wimbledon champion.

“So he has everything to play well on grass, that’s why he won Wimbledon and the Olympics (2012). Everybody knows already what kind of player he is, especially on grass; he’s a big threat for anyone.”

Currently in London for the Aegon Championships, Murray and Verdasco are on a collision course heading into the pre-quarterfinals at the Queen’s Club.

The 28-year-old Murray has a lot of spur to act as an impetus ahead of trying his luck on turf. Not only is he being touted as one of the favourites to clinch the coveted All England Club title, but the form also acts as a catalyst to his odds.
