Murray broke the opening game of each set, smooth sailing.

Go get that gold Andy, then you can go back to being a fail.

No one needs to see Serena unless she's holding gold at a medal ceremony.

A fail? You mean failure?

And he's far from that.

Should at least be an easy GB bronze given the draw. A little worried that the easy road to the semis might come back to bite him in the probable Djokovic match.

Obviously you didn't watch the match, so you wouldn't know that Andy was really good.

My bad, I guess everyone makes mistakes in their own lingo.

Yes, he's a very good player, but he has not matched the expectation we have of him here in Great Britain, therefore he is a failure.

Another easy win for Murray. Played really well but was never tested either.

Definitely looking good so far though.

The only reason why he hasn't reached the expectations of certain individuals in Britain is because of the expectations he has indirectly set himself, by winning some of the biggest tournaments and beating some of the best players in them. He has exceeded realistic expectations that were set by reasonable analysts back in 2005.

He is far from a failure, he has done incredibly well. Regardless of whether he wins a slam or not, he's had a career anyone who's starting out would dream of.

And this is coming from someone who detests him, I'm just not that unreasonable.

A player with 4 slam finals, 22 titles etc. is not a failure, no matter what you expect of them. Look at my signature. Do those statistics point to a failure?
