Murray fans are his worst enemies

Frenemy: A new word on the net; it defines an enemy in the guise of a friend.

Murray's fans are his worst frenemies.

No other fan faction ever only praises their favourite player. They see the flaws of their favourites and measure them by their performance. Fed-Nadal-Safin fans deconstruct their players faults as do numerous other factions. But Murray fans tend to completely overlook his flaws and fill the forums with tedious eulogies, whether his performance meritorious or otherwise, notwithstanding.

Now, dare I add another malicious angle to Murray's torturous legend of pathos: Most of Murray's fans are British, and like every other country that cheers for their players, they cheer for them too ... but do they really? Most of their love for Murray is jingoistic, as are their expectations from him. This is where their sardonic humour comes in, where we can see that they enjoy reviling their hero with their bludgeons as much as they enjoy reviving him from those very strokes. Eitherways, Murray is only a puppet in their hands.

How come players like Federer, and Nadal don't have such problems? They are celebrated in their countries. The Spaniards and the Swiss love their heroes in their own ways - fervently or quietly, but always sincerely. But among the Brits, Its their black humour hiding behind their patriotic expectations. Truth be told, even now, the contemplation of Murray not getting a slam and ending as yet another great hope for Britain, among the British folks, is quiet simply, good gossip over a cup of coffee. They enjoy it. They took a great potential in our beautiful sport way into the seventh sky and dropped him off without a parachute. WHAM! Shame.

Re: Murray fans - His worst enemies?

there's a difference between a normal fan and a mindless tard, if the article talks about the latter, duh, of course, the same happens to all players (Roger and Rafa have some tards that are as :retard: as they come)

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: Murray fans - His worst enemies?

Any player's overly biased, delusional fans are "their worst enemy". Murray has plenty of them, as do Federer and Nadal. Any successful player has plenty of dumbass bandwagon fans.

To learn from mistake is the key, yet all you fan girls/boys do is continue to cheer him on to make the same mistake over and over while ignoring his true potential. You call yourself A TRUE FAN!? Fuck off!

Re: Murray fans - His worst enemies?

Murray's worst enemy is not having a forehand.

Or a serve.

Murray's case is unique. No other top player has that much outer pressure to perform. Of course, when the results do come, people flock around you, but where have the results come in his case? St Petersburg and Doha don't qualify. Yet the Brits celebrate him as a legend, and you are telling me that its only up to Murray.

Murray's fans are responsible for pampering him and spoiling him. He would have greater mental discipline if there would be more objective criticism of his game. Then, he wouldn't melt away in the slams like he does so often, losing to Verdasco, Cilic and Roddick whom he owns in the MMs.

Do you really think so, T_N_E?
I think one of the big challenges for any top player is to deal with the expectations from 'outside'. Some of the players are capable of meeting those expectations at a very young age, others need a lot more time. Remember that Federer himself got the label of being a headcase, a true underachiever in his early days, and got BASHED for it.
The hyping may well be worse in Great-Britain, I don't know, but I don't think Murray has a lot of problems with that at all. Rather the contrary, he comes across as a rather level-headed guy to me.

How do you know whether Murray has a lack of 'mental discipline'? I think rather the contrary. And not every time a player loses a tough match, it's a case of 'melting away' - sometimes they just happen to run into an opponent who's playing better at that time. Verdasco, Cilic and Roddick were all on a very hot streak when they beat Murray. It... happens.
And comparing results in lesser tournaments with those in slams... there's this big difference called 'Best of Five', and that's one of the things that makes winning a slam such a very difficult thing to do.
