I can't understand your surprise. Firstly, a fan of a player want him to proceed as far as possible, even if he should run against a wall somewhere. I like Berankis and I definitely wanted him to get to meet Murray even though I felt he'd be totally without hope to win that match. Secondly, fans rarely see their favourite as being without a chance to win against a player he's beaten more times than he's lost to him, including two of the last three meetings.
You do realize rubbishing Fed as much as possible is not going to yield Murray a single extra point when they do meet? Nor Djokovic? Why not settle for a little realism? What do you really think is going to happen?
