After he defeated 20-year-old Bernard Tomic in Miami, 6-3, 6-1, Andy Murray is asked to compare the Australian with 21-year-old Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. Murray will play Dimitrov, whom the Scot beat in the Brisbane final earlier this year, in his next match. Both youngsters have been said to have elite potential.

“Grigor is probably a better athlete,” Murray told reporters. “But I think, like tennis IQ, Bernard knows how to play tennis. He has very good anticipation. He has great feel. Grigor has very good feel, as well. Bernard is a really big guy. He kind of hunches over a bit, but he's 6’4”, 6’5”. That can help, too. It’s tough to say who’s better. They have had similar results. Maybe Bernard, he's done better in the Slams and obviously won a tournament. Grigor has played well this year.”
