Sequel fatigue might be a problem for Hollywood studios, but not for Andy Murray. Mariano Rivera Jersey . This semifinal weekend in Glasgow, Murray will be hoping to move closer to a remake of last years buddy movie -- winning the Davis Cup alongside his brother?Jamie?and friends.Most players are content with a sole Davis Cup triumph -- Roger Federer is in that category -- but once hasnt sated Murrays ambitions: We want to do it again.In Murrays own analysis, this has already been the finest year of his tennis life to date, even if his greatest accomplishments in 2016 havent been wholly original storylines. But why should he care when he has been turning in such great performances, and winning some of the biggest prizes?Becoming the Wimbledon champion for a second occasion this year might not have had quite the same cathartic feel or epic quality as his first victory in 2013, but it was compelling nonetheless, especially as it was his first Grand Slam title anywhere for three years. Retaining the Olympic title was hardly any less enjoyable than when he did so the first time -- no man or woman had previously won two successive singles gold medals.And dont imagine for one moment that last Novembers Davis Cup triumph -- set, of all the places, in a hangar on the outskirts of Ghent -- means that he is now content to coast in this competition. Right from the start of the Davis Cup year, before the first-round tie against Japan, he said: Why cant we win this again? Why not?You can have more than one goal during the year, he told reporters after joining up with the GB team in Glasgow. At the end of last year, Davis Cup -- for all of us -- was a priority. But I dont think, at the beginning of the year, we expected to win the event.As you get closer and closer, you want to make the most of the opportunity -- and we want to do it again. I want to win all the events I can.I took a few days off after New York and came here and have been practising since Sunday. I get a little break after Im finished here, so one more big push this weekend.Murray is quite different to Federer, who since winning the Davis Cup for the first time in 2014, when Switzerland defeated France in Lille, has never aspired to being the champion once again. As he once observed: My idea was never to win it twice, the idea was to win it once.On another occasion, the Swiss described playing in the competition as a heavy burden; in the past two years, Federers only appearance was in last Septembers World Group playoff against Holland when he intervened to prevent his country from being relegated into the zonal divisions.Novak Djokovic has also only won the Davis Cup once, when Serbia defeated France in the 2010 final, though he has made another unsuccessful appearance in a final, against the Czech Republic in 2013.While Murray has a mere three Grand Slams, which leaves him a few behind Federer, who has 17, and Djokovic, on 12, the Briton has out-performed his Swiss and Serbian rivals when representing his country.Neither of them have even one Olympic singles gold medal, while Murray has two. And now, in this year of sequels for Murray, he seeks another remake, one which would allow him to surpass Federer and Djokovic in another competition.Should Britain go through, and France also progress, the final would be played on the other side of the Channel. But the movie could be freshened up with a home final, too, if Britain end up playing Croatia. Its a safe bet that Murray would be highly motivated either way. Wholesale MLB Yankees Jerseys . The Redskins announced Monday that the quarterback who led the team to the Super Bowl championship in the 1987 season will serve as a personnel executive. Wade Boggs Jersey . The native of Mont-Tremblant, Que., captured a World Cup downhill event Saturday, his second this year and fifth career victory on the circuit. http://www.yankeesjerseyscheap.com/?tag=thurman-munson-jersey . According to a report from the Vancouver Province, the Lions are expected to replace former DC Rich Stubler with defensive backs coach Mark Washington. Hes the rock Sydney FC hope to build their season on and so far, its the perfect foundation.The Sky Blues are yet to concede a goal in the three competitive games veteran defender Alex Wilkinson has played since joining Sydney FC over the winter, including last weeks season-opening clean sheet.Their defence was an overlooked aspect of their resounding A-League derby win over Western Sydney, extending their perfect defensive run to four games.Coach Graham Arnolds side also havent conceded a goal throughout their FFA Cup campaign.You pride yourself on clean sheets. Arnie likes to have his teams defensively well-organised, but we can still be better than what we have been. Western Sydney created a few chances, Wilkinson told AAP on Wednesday.Its obviously a good start to show that the structures are in place that things are starting to work without us conceding, but theres a lot of improvement left in us still.After spending half of last season with Melbourne City, Wilkinson re-unites with Arnold in the harbour city after the pair enjoyed plenty of success at Central Coast between 2010-12.The 32-year-oold former Socceroo said Arnold was a huge factor in him changing clubs. Austin Romine Jersey. Im originally from Sydney and my wifes from Sydney, so after being away for four years in Asia, it was nice to be back home. Its good to have that support network, he said.And also obviously knowing Arnie and a lot of the players here, it made it a good decision both professionally and personally.Ahead of Saturdays home-opener against the Mariners, Wilkinson is one of eight players and coaches who have been involved in either camp.Mariners trio Jacques Faty, Mickael Tavares and Ivan Necevski all switched camps over the off-season and were a part of their 3-3 comeback draw with Perth in round one.Wilkinson said all three would have a point to prove against their old club.Always when you come up against your old club, you want to play well and you want to perform. Im sure thatll be no different for the guys who left here and went up there, he said.Im sure theyll come out and want to impress.
