Re: what is wrong with Andrew Murray??

Same as last year:

1) Disappointment at losing an Aus Open final he thought he could win (probably spuriously, given how crap he was against Ferrer and Dolgo the previous two rounds).
2) Falling out of love with tennis a bit, especially ....
3) Masters events, which don't mean as much when you've won 6.


He'll prolly repeat last year's pattern, sleepwalk through clay and wake up for Wimbledon, then win Canada for the 3rd year in a row :-)

Yeah, he'll be fine eventually. He did this last year too.

lack of motivation, he doesn't want to win, he has lost his fighting spirit after the australian open,

maybe he doesn't care about tennis, he is on IDLE mode and he waits the beginning of the grass season where he can restart the engine

Agreed. Last year, he was never this far down. A 6-2 6-1 beating to Kohli on clay, well that seems a tiny tiny bit more reasonable than a 6-1 7-5 loss to Bogomolov on his best surface, or a 7-6 6-3 loss to Young. He did actually win some matches on clay last year, losing to Ferrer twice, and then beaten in the 4R of Roland Garros by Berdych who was around his peak last year. This year, you don't see him making the 4R of Roland Garros

Re: what is wrong with Andrew Murray??

Suffering the understandable mental drawbacks of not being able to win a major/GS-title when it truly mattered the most, two (or more?) times in a row by now.

Muzza is still young, he's a talented player, a GOOD player when he's on. Writing him off is very much prematurally right now.

He'll be back. I do recommend him to get some coaching in the mental department though - tennis is NOT all about 'who has the biggest muscles'. It's the HEAD that counts most of all.

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

He's serving like Andrea Murray now, and Djokovic crushed his confidence in Melbourne...

so true, Young and Bogomolov, how could he go lower. These guys are really crap, i'm sorry to tell the truth. He could completely fall apart during clay season. It's not like he is very confident on the surface.

He should be able to beat this guy without a forehand or backhand of note.
