Murray Musings

By Claire, Scott and Peter
Three friends come together to talk about the Scottish professional tennis player, Andy Murray. Listen in as they examine Andy's career in a detail that only the most passionately dedicated/obsessive(!?) of fans could manage. Follow Claire, Scott and Peter as they ramble, rave, and generally attempt to articulate their love for the man that's given them so much joy. As Andy looks to prove that he's still capable of top level tennis ahead of the 2021 season, join his biggest fans as they prepare themselves for what could well be the most important year in their hero's career so far...

Episode 59 - A Conversation with Mark Petchey
Well, this is definitely a Murray Musings highlight! Former professional player, former coach of Andy Murray and current Amazon Prime tennis commentator and analyst Mark Petchey visited Murray Musings HQ this week and amazingly, didn't get scared off by the fact that one of the very first things Scott wanted to show him was his life-size Andy cardboard cutout! Mark offers insight into his own career, giving advice to aspiring commentators and pundits, as well as telling us about what Andy was like as a teenager trying to make it big in a sport that's notoriously difficult to make it big in. He takes our hosts on trip down memory lane, shares some career highlights and milestones, as well as making a few intriguing predictions for the upcoming Wimbledon fortnight.  Grab a coffee, a tea, a coke, a glass of water, whatever you fancy, and settle on in. This is a good 'un.

Episode 58 - Murray vs Bublik in Stuttgart
So by this point, it's pretty much a given that Murray Musings content is generally an absolute mess of unfiltered love for Andy Murray and so on this episode, our hosts sat down to commentate on a match as it happened. Oh, yes, listen on in for a whole lot of swearing and screaming and swearing and yelling and swearing and moaning and swearing and...

Episode 57 - The French Open with Bagels
Ah, yes, another classic "let's record a preview of this tournament when it's already started" episode of Murray Musings! Gotta' love them! Our hosts sat down alongside Owen, Vansh and Andre from Tennis and Bagels to talk about the French Open and to make their predictions for who's going to beat who along the way. Let it be said that some of these predictions have aged well since this was recorded!... Some have not... We encourage you to laugh freely at the ones that have already disastrously failed.

Episode 56 - Talking About Everything And Anything All At Once
So Scott was off this week, the wee skiver, and so Claire and Peter were flying solo but not without some help from their special guest, Nick Carter! A massive tennis fanatic and frequent writer, Nick swings by Murray Musings HQ with his thoughts on who will win the French Open, alongside his thoughts on just about everything else other than tennis to be honest! Grab a cup of hot chocolate and settle in for a conversation that wanders and meanders in a style only Murray Musings is truly capable of...

Episode 55 - A Conversation with Lee @tennisontelly
There were cobwebs hanging from the rafters of Murray Musings HQ when our guest arrived last week, so long has it been since we last recorded an episode. Thankfully, he didn't judge us Scott's cleaning skills too harshly... You may know Lee better as the man behind the twitter handle in the title of this episode. Lee joins us to talk about his life and how he came to be involved in the British tennis scene alongside many other details and tidbits which may prove handy to anyone thinking about visiting their local tennis tournaments. Come join us for a chitchat, a biscuit, and just a little bit of tennis gossip...

Episode 54 - A Conversation with Bastien Fachan
We're back! Finally! One day we'll get a regular upload schedule on the go again but until then, you'll have to make do with Scott's schedule which is basically whenever he can stop being lazy and get to work... Anyways! We're back and we've brought a very special guest in to chat with us all at Murray Musings HQ. Bastien Fachan works in tennis social media, most notably having spent time at the Mouratoglou Academy while also tweeting out content for TennisTV! Oh, yes, Bastien's the man behind all of the gifs and clips that you see down your timeline throughout matches. We quiz Bastien on his introduction to tennis, how he got in to the social side of things, before moving on to talk about both Andy Murray, Roger Federer and what their uncertain on-court futures might hold...

Episode 52 - Indian Wells Review, Miami Preview, Ash Barty Career Overview
Well... it's certainly been a week! Come join Peter, Claire and Scott as they sit down together in Murray Musings HQ to discuss the last week and a half of tennis action before turning their attention to the week and a half of tennis action to come. They also talk Ash Barty and the groundbreaking news regarding the current world number 1's decision to take early retirement! What does this mean?! Where does the WTA go from here?! It's all discussed right here in your favourite Andy Murray podcast!... (probably because it's the only Andy Murray podcast available but STILL!)

Episode 51 - 698, 699... 700!!!!
Just the other night, Andy Murray reached a career milestone that at one point looked to be just about out of his reach. 700 career match wins put him in an elite category of players to reach that number and it only adds to his legacy as one of the greatest, both of his generation and of all time. Join Peter, Claire and Scott as they discuss the match while SOMEHOW FORGETTING TO MENTION THE NUMBER 700 AT ALL THROUGHOUT THE EPISODE! In their defence, it was early in the morning for Claire and Scott and late at night for Peter and so we think that we can all agree that the best course of action is to blame Scott and be done with it... Anyways, we hope you enjoy and here's to 800!

Episode 50(!!!) - Ivan fu*king Lendl!!!
It's our 50th episode! Thank you all for sticking with us through this weird journey that we started over a year ago now, we can't quite believe that we've made it to this point and we can't quite believe people still listen on in to us, especially given the fact that Scott's been on 95% of the episodes and never shuts up. The perseverance from all of you to put up with THAT is simply astounding! Anyways, come join us for a special 50th episode where we discuss Andy Murray's BIG coaching hire announcement made just last week. Does this mean a change of fortunes for our man after an up-and-down season so far?! Peter joins us on this call live from on-site at Indian Wells, a tournament that Andy will be playing in this coming week!  Safe to say it's all kicking off on this week's episode of Murray Musings!

Wherever you're at, stick some headphones in and let Peter and LaWanda take you through why Indian Wells is so unique.

Indeed he did! Joining our hosts on the show today is Travis Landry, a longtime Andy Murray fan and friend of the podcast.

Alongside this, we discuss Travis and Peter meeting in person this week at the Dallas Open, what the tournament was like as a whole and what, exactly, it was like to get the chance to interview British number 4 Liam Broady! ...oh, we also discuss Andy's recent results and his upcoming match against Taro Daniel as well!

Episode 47 - Rotterdam With Bagels
Just last night, our hosts got the band back together and brought in the Tennis and Bagels Podcast boys to help them run over the second week's happenings at the Australian Open (can you believe they continued the tournament after Andy lost? Unbelievable...). On top of that, they also chitchat about the recent sad news that former US Open champion Juan Martín del Potro is planning to hang up his racket in the next few weeks. :( And on top of that on top of that, they also discuss Andy's chances in the Rotterdam tournament taking place this coming week! We ramble, we go off topic, we have no idea what's going on... It's another episode of Murray Musings.

February 06, 2022
Episode 46 - Come Have A Drink With Us...
Well... That was the Australian Open, eh? We all enjoyed it even if it was a bit short but it was good for what it was and it wrapped up after only two matches! Crazy! Weird that they didn't even bother playing beyond the second round... Such a shame... ... Come have a drink with us as we consider Andy Murray's Australian Open run with Michael/@lobwinners. We review what's gone and preview what's still on the horizon and think about what Andy's next steps could be.  Better days are to come. Believe it.

Episode 44 - A Conversation with Judy Murray
No, don't adjust your screens. You read that title correctly. Earlier this week, Claire, Peter, Scott and guest host Zainab sat down with Judy Murray(!!!!) to talk about the legacy of the Murray family, how the governing bodies in British tennis have failed to capitalise on her sons' successes and what she thinks of the current Novak Djokovic situation. Judy brings with her a history of helping children enjoy picking up rackets for the first time and level of coaching that could well produce further Scottish/British tennis champions. Sit back, relax and listen on in to an episode of Murray Musings that our hosts still can't quite believe took place. Thank you for taking a chance on us, Judy!

Episode 43 - A Quiet Start To 2022...
Nothing much has really been happening in the world of professional tennis in the first few weeks of the 2022 season to be honest so we gave Peter, Claire and Scott the week off to relax and do no-... OK, OK, we're only joking!  HAPPY NEW YEAR, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND HAPPY WE-HOPE-YOU-ALL-HAVE-THE-RIGHT-VISA! Oh, yes, come and sit with our hosts as we analyse Andy Murray's blink-and-you'd-miss-it start to the year before we move on to talk about the current dilemma surrounding Novak Djokovic...

Episode 40 - Reflections on Andy's 2021 Season
Claire and Peter poured themselves a glass of their preferred alcoholic beverage this week and sat down to talk about Andy's 2021 season and all that came with it. From the highs of his Wimbledon first and second round wins to the lows of his losses that perhaps came too frequently for both his and our liking, this episode is simultaneously a trip down memory lane and a fingers-crossed look to the future...

A few weeks ago, Blair Henley was kind enough to take time out of her ridiculously busy schedule to come and chat with our hosts again here in Murray Musings HQ. She brought with her fresh new stories from behind the scenes of some of the most well-known and memorable tennis player interviews and interactions and also offered her thoughts on how Andy has been getting on in the second half of 2021.

Episode 37 - A Second Conversation with Ben Rothenberg
Ahead of this episode, Scott just about managed to pull himself together and be on his best behaviour ahead of Ben Rothenberg's second visit to Murray Musings HQ. Ben kindly agreed to return to the podcast on the final day of the 2021 Laver Cup and shared his thoughts on the tournament with us, as well as commenting once more on the key issues that he feels currently demand the most attention on the professional tennis tours. Some of what is discussed is of a very serious nature so please do take note of the timestamps below. Thank you and we hope you enjoy. 30 minutes, 30 seconds - discussion on the the two articles Ben has written on Olya Sharypova's claims of abuse at the hands of her ex-partner Alexander Zverev.

Our hosts also touch on the Laver Cup social media accounts blocking criticism of Zverev's participation. 1 hour, 20 minutes - we move on to discuss Sloane Stephens and Andy Murray.

Episode 36 - Murray plays Metz
In the days before Andy's first match in Metz, Peter and Scott sat down to chat about his two match in Rennes last week and what their thoughts are on his form currently. In the absence of Claire, Peter puts in a good shift managing Scott's general pessimism to the point where they both are feeling quietly optimistic about his chances despite a solid draw stacked with quality opposition standing in Andy's way to the title...

September 21, 2021
Episode 35 - Raducanu and Rennes
The title says it all with this episode as Claire and Peter sit down with returning/guest host Rashmi to talk all things Emma Raducanu and all things Rennes Challenger tournament, the event that Andy Murray is currently playing in this week. Thankfully, Scott could not make it for this recording and so cannot gloat in everyone's faces regarding his absolutely outstanding, mesmerising, fabulous prediction regarding Raducanu's run to the US Open trophy... Yes, Scott did write this description. ;)

Episode 29 - Loos, Queues and a VERY late Olympics Preview...
7 days ago, our hosts sat down with the lovely Angie! A tennis fanatic, Angie brought with her a passion for Canadian players which at the tiiiiiiime, proved to be a somewhat controversial subject given that Andy Murray was due to play Felix Auger Aliassime... We all know how THAT ended up turning out... In any case, a lot of what Peter, Claire, Angie and Scott discuss within this episode has already come and gone but that's OK because there's also moments such as Claire asking Angie how the logistics of going to the toilet work when you're in the official Wimbledon Queue...

Grab a drink of your own and listen on in as Claire and Peter attempt to offer some valuable insight on the French Open draws, whilst Scott steadily and repeatedly drives the entire conversation off the rails.
