Andy Murray: "Iíve just got no chance to be ready for Wimbledon now"
He was joking, of course. Here's the full quote:
Asked if the second-round defeat was a cause for concern, Murray, his voice dripping with sarcasm, joked: ďOh, panic stations.
ďIíve just got no chance to be ready for Wimbledon now. Itís going to be impossible, I think.Ē
So Murray was not too worried by the loss of his title or the manner of his defeat and said: ďThere is no need for me to panic.
ďI lost the match in the third set 7‑6 in the first round of the tournament. It takes a bit of time to adjust to the grass courts.Ē
In fact it took him most of the first set to trust his footing on the lush, sappy grass.
With both men slipping and sliding all over the court the more tentative Murrayís movement became.
He said: ďI didnít move very well at the start of the match and then I started to move better. I donít think it all went wrong. It was a very close match.
ďI thought losing serve at the beginning of the third set after breaking him was probably not great. That got him back into the match.
ďThen I missed probably about four shots on the tape and a roll in a tiebreak. They were probably the bits that didnít help.Ē

Murray should focus on winning a 250 on clay instead of things he will never achieve.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.
At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.
