Smile Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

I hope some people on MTF may be able to celebrate Murray's great level of play today and his talent which has always been great (look at his match against Fed in Cincinnati 2006 or against Nadal in Tokyo last year )

Let's hope a great future for him : like for Fed's doubles gold in 2008, maybe it will give him a boost for the US Open and the future

Well done, Muzzah. Deserved it man. Let's see you win some big things in 2013. USO 2012 is Roger's though . You can also win the WTF.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

Great achievement for Murray, he can add another gold medal later this afternoon in mixed doubles too. People will probably come with the whole 'It's not a Slam' nonsense, but winning gold for your nation is a very special achievement no matter how you look at it. Murray must be very proud. And he did so in style, playing great tennis in semis and final.

Murray really deserved to win a big title like this. He showed some great, aggressive tennis during the last week. Congratulations!

I like Murray's chances at the US Open this year.

PAW Singles Ranking - 396
TITLES (TMS Rome 04', Rolland Garros 04', Wimbeldon 04')
RUNNER-UP (Rosmalen 04' US Open 04')

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

What a great tournament it has been with a clean podium. No other venue will top this one in terms of prestige. All medals are worth twice as much as other Olympic tennis medals won in plces like Beijing

Goldray's medal is the greatest Olympic tennis gold of all time.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

Great win by Murray, he outplayed Fed from the first point and showed plenty of fight at times.

I was impressed at how solid Murray played for the whole match and I think if we look at both the Wimbledon final and today match an increase level of mental toughness.

When he is confident and playing offensive off the return. His game is the most versatile and unique in tennis. Its great to watch.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

Congratulations on a great performance Andy Murray. I think the floodgates open now for multiple slams starting with the 2012 US Open. Djokovic and Nadal are fading into the background. Murray and del Potro are surely rising. Federer is still Federer.

Hate Free Zones do not exist on MTF. Also Murray's forehand really saved him today, even when his serve went missing. His backhand, slice and volleys have always been great to watch.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

yes, his forehand was especially impressive, also in the semifinal,

and he was very quick.

and his volleys have always been great (I saw him play serev-and-volley in Bercy against a very good Nalbandian and he was great), but playing doubles has made him even better today.

He still needs to improve his serve mostly imo but he has every thing of the rest, even if his forehand is not as good as the other three ones of the top-4.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

I'm very happy for him, this was highly impressive. He had some tough losses but is not going away but only keeps improving. With that mentality and given that he has the least matches in his legs of the top 4 by over 100 matches, he still has a promising future.

Re: Hate-free zone to celebrate Murray's great level of play and talent

Greatest player to not win a slam and greatest player not to win 5 slams, I kid you not.

All things are subject to interpretation whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.
