Andy often look like he suffer from severe hemorrhoids when he is on court, but this is a problem about which Tommy should not make fun

Murray would be a great player if he didn't choose to copy his idol Nadal without the power to do it. Instead he became an ugly pusher, not many respect for him, not to mention his attitude on the court.

Federer was right about him.

Nadal and Djokovic do it too. Why pick on thick legs?

I think Haasi-boy has quite possibly a point but I wouldn't say touching yourself is gamesmanship. As a player you have to concentrate on your own game; if you get easily distracted by the other player injury problems then you are not good enough to deserve the win.

Re: Tommy Haas on Murray: "He brings on trainer then moves like a cat"

Murray hardly ever calls the trainer but he does have an annoying habit of grabbing something or wincing in pain when he loses a point. But this is just his particular way of dealing with losing a point. I expect most tennis players feel a bit sore after a demanding point, and Murray perhaps just resents putting the strain on his body for no gain. Everybody should be used to it by now.

his problem is that he should stick to one leg I noticed this time during the french that he touched the wrong leg many times (right leg meaning the leg where he touches first after losing a point) .Lendl must teach him that first

He said it's very hard to win slams by pushing, he was a little bit disappointed because he thought Murray would become a player more spectacular when he was young.

100% correct, it all goes back to Indian Wells in 2007... Tommy Haas also said in his post-match interview that he was waiting 5 years to finally bash Murray, since that was his most painful loss in the last 5 years

That is playing down bad sportsmanship and nothing else. I hope you saw that match against Gasquet at the French as a fan of this sport, not just through Andy Murray signature glasses. cheers

I'm not condoning bad sportsmanship, I'm merely saying that gamesmanship happens and all players have to deal with someone who does that at some point or other.

As for whether Murray is guilty of it, I would say that he can play the comedy at times, but sometimes what people take for gamesmanship I don't see that way - in the same way that when people don't like a player, they tend to ascribe everything negative about them to deliberate, nefarious behaviour.
