Mourrier and Murray

Why does he still umpire Murray matches after making up the rules as he went along to his detriment in Canada against Nadal in 08*.There's enough umpires that a petty personal bias shouldn't be allowed to be continued.Knowing Murray's temper he may well have earned the enmity but that's irrelevent.

*He told Murray he couldn't have an injury timeout unless he was serving next a "rule" he ignored the next time it came up.

p.s. I'd be grateful if someone told me how to change the thread title.

Re: Mourrier and Murray

I understand Murray's disappointment and his arguments. At 3:3 in the final set at 8:30 p.m. the match should have been continued.

On the other hand, XXI century and a centre court without floodlights

Re: Mourrier and Murray

Murray was standing on the court ready to play. Did they even ask him if he wanted to continue? I didn't realize there is a history between Mourier and Murray.

Re: Mourrier and Murray

I suppose there is not much point in paying a lot of money for lights on grass courts, by the time it is getting dark the dew is starting to make the courts slippery as well.

Fish didn't complain about the grass though, even though he had slipped earlier. Maybe because he was ahead at that point. . .

Re: Mourrier and Murray

I don't think there is any drama between Mourier and Murray - I mean, Andy's picked a fight with them all at one time or another.

Well even with lights the centre court would be unplayable in the evening/night. Too slippery.

Re: Mourrier and Murray

Surely there should be a 20-page thread about the evil English crowd's booing of Fish? No?

He's the only umpire I think this about so even if I'm being unreasonable it's not a blanket whinge just a targetted one.

I only think Mourier dislikes Andy(by my reading of his actions),not that Andy any of cares,agrees or notices necessarily.

It might be me reading something into that initial IMO inexcusanle call than wasn't actually there.He could have refused the request without implying Murray would have been breaking the rules.

Maybe there would be if they booed every time a challenge was made.

IMO it's not a good enough argument to still play this shit with suspended matches but it's the argument here though, in contrary to Roland Garros for instance

If I'm right the time's irrelevent he'll still be biased,if I'm wrong that's the reason I should let it go.

I do logically realise it's more likely I'm wrong but I still think it's true,and that he'd have told Murray he couldn't request a break when the opponent was about to serve tonight.

Maybe 'cause Fish has well earned his boo-es, after running away in that way. Was he scared to get cold out there?

Re: Mourrier and Murray

that was not a classy move from Fish , used to respect the guy , hope Murray comes out firing and wins this now.
