Sportivity (Murray vs Troicki)

I think it would have been good if Murray gave the point away when the ball boy entered the field. He was not going to win the point, so for me it seems not sportsmanlike to except it. I know its the rule but in this particular situation, it would be nice to give the point away IMO.

Murray is the ultimate sportsman. Instead of giving the point away, he gave the game away

Re: Sportivity (Murray vs Troicki)

Totally disagree, not because I am a Murray fan. This is a professional sport, and you play each point to win, regardless of luck, injury to opponent, or anything else.

Re: Sportivity (Murray vs Troicki)

Didn't make much of a difference in the end as he still got broken, would have been more of an issue if he'd held.

Will Federer regain the #1 spot and break Sampras's record for most weeks at the top?

Roger // Rafa // Raonic // Söderling // Goffin // Ivo // Wawrinka // Baker // Delpo

Im no murray or troicki fan or hater. Its just the way I play myself and other players I play against. When an other ball comes in court and the point is practically won.

Off course you win the point when your opponent is injured, or when you hit a netcourt dropshot, that is all in the game of tennis. For me this has nothing to do with tennis the point was for 99.9% finished.

Re: Sportivity (Murray vs Troicki)

troicki was worse acting like a spoilt child towards the ballboy. Murray just was opportunistic, if not very fair play.
Anyway probably didn't affect the outcome of the match as Murray lost this game

Re: Sportivity (Murray vs Troicki)

Muzza lost the game It didn't affect Viktor. Also, do you think Viktor would've gave the point away? I don't think so, so why with the whining?

Yup, but that is the difference between a friendly game between friends and a professional match. Terrible situation for Troicki, of course, but you just have to move on, which is what seemed to happen anyway, as others have said, since Troicki won the game in question.
