Indeed, even most challengers wouldn't expect this kind of match-up. Then again 250s are almost challenger hybrids.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

Guy is complaining about persistent injuries but he's playing useless exhibitions all over the world during preseason...or useless "tournaments" before Grand Slams (Kooyong) and Davis Cup (Montpellier)...he doesn't need a knee but a brain

Good move, those two events look like challengers

He also played doubles with Benny this tourney and basically threw the match by shanking every volley that came his way. For someone not a 100%, playing singles and doubles is a little much.

Re: Monfils WDs from San Jose and Memphis

Might be a good idea to skip both Indian Wells and Miami therefore he can be 100% for the DC tie against the USA and then Monte Carlo.

Playing the 5th rubber, Exho and then the doubles match didn't help! Gael!

Too bad Andy is in the other half of the draw. Ryan Harrison is the beneficiary - nearly guaranteed to make the semis with Ginepri and a challenger player in his path. He beat Raonic last year and I'd like his chances against Kevin Anderson as well.

Andy Murray: 2012 Olympic gold and silver medalist. US Open Champ. Wimbledon champ. Never been prouder of him.

It'll be okay, at least now he'll be more ready for IW and Miami physically.

Can't argue with that tbh.

A great player to watch, and one of the Eurosport commentators summed him up perfectly in Doha, last month: "You only need to look at him, and it makes you smile."

The problem is that by focusing on being more of a showman, he is sacrificing an opportunity for a better career.

He won't win a Slam (and probably not a Masters Series, as time is slowly passing him by...), but he should be consistently amongst the best 6-10 players in the world. Even by being amongst that select group, he'd be maximising his chances of a shock big title win, should some surprising results come about. Ranked outside the top 8-16, his chances of capitalising on a more open draw are much less.


He has the athleticism, stamina, strength, and great talent. But he hasn't a clue how to use even a fraction of it.

It is nice to see him chase after 'nothing balls', but there isn't much point doing it again and again. Best to save energy, and his joints (from jerky movements).

Often he plays far too passively, and ends up either losing matches he shouldn't (although that obviously happens to every player over a career), or winning after expending far too much energy. He can play effective aggressive tennis, but rarely continues this strategy after 15 minutes. He often becomes stuck between passive and aggressive, rushing the net at inopportune times, and not having the 'feel' for good volleys anyway.


He needs to study the likes of Nadal, Djokovic, Murray and Ferrer a little more. These guys are brilliant at using all facets of their game...turning defence into attack, especially. Murray probably the more talented out of those guys, with nice hands at the net.
