In 2005 and 2011 he won Doha and lost in the AO.
In 2004, 2007 and 2010 he didn't win any tournament before the AO and ended up winning the AO. Look at 2007, Roddick was all pumped up after having MP against Roger in the 2006 TMC and beating him in Kooyong. We know what happened in the famous 2007 AO semi.

Despite all this I truly believe murray will go slamless in 2012. lol
yeah but Fed was known for winning Slams before all that ....

I get what you're saying.
My point his that murray's form in Brisbane is no indicator of how he'll fare in the AO. Murray still has at least 2/3 matches facing easy opposition in the AO.

I don't get it. I thought a guy like Andy would beat everyone in this tournament in straight sets but it seems like in every match it goes to a third set.

He's maybe not had much court time in the offseason, after the groin injury.

Probably quite fortunate he was scheduled for a tournament tbh, his normal fooling around at Hopman wouldn't have been much use.

I think having a couple of tough initial matches and coming through is a good thing. Ultimately what the top 3 does so well is to play at 60% first 5 matches, then in the SF turn the dial up to 100% and then 120% in the final with attacking tennis. Here's hoping Lendl can drill this attitude into Andy and cut out the mental lapses.

Re: Brisbane R2:Murray beats Muller 46 76 60

murray will be tired by the time AO starts, too many 3 setters.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

This Mugray is too good. Winning in 3 sets against way weaker players than him, just to have the perfect match practice at the AO! It's all a plan!

Yep - that must be why the much-hyped-on-MTF Tsonga took 3 sets yesterday to beat a player ranked #118. Cunning plans indeed.
