PLAYERS: Andy Murray
People have been treating Andy Murray differently since he won his first major, ending that long, long drought for British men at the tennis Grand Slam events. He's been given some free rides, lots of accolades and - just for something new at the start of the season in Australia - he didn't have to answer a single question about Fred Perry, or 1936. The U.S. Open and Olympic champion said Tuesday as he prepared for his title defense at the Brisbane International that he's more relaxed than usual for this time of the year: ''It was very nice for me to finally be able to move on and not worry about that stuff anymore.''
