Stupid poll.

Murray will win in all likelihood, but not putting a Giraldo will win option is both arrogant and disrespectful.

Re: Barcalona R3: Murray vs Giraldo

Giraldo doesn't have anything that can trouble Andy. Andy in straights. In the unlikely scenario that it is somehow taken to three sets, Andy still wins.

So? It's not as if Giraldo has any chance if Andy plays over 50%. This may be on clay, but Andy is just a far better player than Giraldo can ever hope to be, so he takes this easily. Of course, Giraldo could get a set, but he's not winning.

Agreed!

If Murray lost to Young, he could very well lose to Giraldo.

Federer, Raonic, Tsonga, Monfils, DelPo ...

Re: Barcalona R3: Murray vs Giraldo

the poll options are a bit disrespectful although funny because let's be honest these Murray-in-love-fans are right, there is literally no way in hell Giraldo comes close to winning this. a year ago I might have said differently because Giraldo appeared much more promising but at this point he has totally went MIA in his career as far as a rising star or hopeful talent.

Murray should have no problems, I am not even sure if Giraldo is better on clay than hard at this point

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

Murray lost in straight sets to Garcia Lopez in hard, so please shut the fuck up.

Re: Barcalona R3: Murray vs Giraldo

Murray is a nobody on clay. Anything is possible on this surface. Giraldo in 3 sets.

Re: Barcalona R3: Murray vs Giraldo

Trouble is I'm not sure just how committed Andy is to this tournament. He can't gain any points unless he reaches the final, so I suspect he is playing here a) to get clay practice with Lendl there, b)to help with the 500 commitment and c) to play doubles with his brother. I hope the first one at least means that he is not over-careless.

This thread is just begging for a Giraldo karma victory over the Scottish Warrior.

Fixed it for you.

Murray will probably win, but it doesn't make the poll any less arrogant and disrespectful.

And if the better player won all the time, there'd be no reason to watch tennis. I feel sorry for these people who claim they know every result before matches take place, I can't imagine they enjoy watching matches of which they already know the outcome very much.

Yeah, Giraldo may be able to win, Murray still should though.
