On the Spanish player, Murray had a lot to say and he predicted that he will end up being the best player in the world in the future. He said:

“He’s already a fantastic player but he’s got bags of potential. I think there are a few guys that can obviously get there but just from watching him, I don’t see many flaws for a young player. From what I’ve seen, he’s got all the tools to be at the top of the game very soon.”

Murray further heaped prasise on the youngster saying:

“I think physically he’s extremely strong and moves great around the court. He obviously plays well on the clay and on the hard courts which isn’t the case for all the young guys. He’s got a big game and I think he’s got a good attitude. I spoke a little bit to his coach Juan Carlos Ferrero about him and he said he’s a good worker and he loves tennis and is very humble and stuff but believes in himself a lot.”

How Murray stacks up against the youngster will be determined in an hour when they step onto the courts. We will have a report ready for you once it's done son don't go far. Let's finish on Murray's words once more:

"I think he will be world No 1. There are no guarantees but I would say he’s got the ability potentially to get there.”
