What's up with Murray?

Why has he been so poor since the Australian Open? Is it a mental thing or much more than that?

Re: What's up with Murray?

Nothing is wrong with him anymore. He lost to Fish because Fish was playing great tennis, and he lost in RG because it's on clay. He'll play well in the second half of the year, hardcourt season.

LET'S GO!!

Re: What's up with Murray?

Hmmm, I'm not sure I think there is more than that. He just doesn't seem to have that fighting spark that he had before for a start....

No there isn't. Not anymore. He has said that he is back to training more.

If he doesn't get his act together, he'll be out of the top 5 soon.

Re: What's up with Murray?

Clearly had zero interest in tennis till about Rome. Now about slowly regaining match focus. I wondered a while back if he'd decided to focus almost entirely on slams - that question is still up in the air, we won't really know till the end of the year.

If he plays to his recent level, he'll probably go out in the qfs to Tsonga, and likely he'll drop to 6 after Wimbledon. Also defends 1360 points at Cinci+Canada, but after that he can start to pick up lots of points (early exit US Open, skipped Asian swing, tanked Paris).

I can't see him losing to Jo-Willie. Not at Wimbledon, at least. As for what's wrong with him, he had a hard, soul crushing loss. In my opinion, he getting his fire back and is playing better. I expect to see him at the SF's.

I'd agree, it is a slam after all ......but how much can he summon at will? Like I said, at his recent level he's not winning that match, and it's not easy to find an extra gear out of nowhere.

Fortunate he has such an easy draw .... for the second year in a row (would be suspicious if Nadal's wasn't so brutal).

What makes you think Tsonga will beat him on grass? Jo has done very little on the surface.
