Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

The Tokyo organizers ripping their hair out trying to find somebody willing to play Murray.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Shouldn't it be "unlucky loser"

The scars of the coming defeat are not going to go away fast.

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

3. Murray wins US Open 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by [pending]. Thanks [pending]!

It's going to be sucky loser if they have to delve any further into the LL list

They've all bolted and who can blame them?

Only one thing would get me to play Goatray in this situation. A naked massage by the man himself before the match.

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

Does anyone know for sure? LL is randomly drawn from the 5 best ranked players that lost in the final round of qualifying? But here we had only 4 final round of Q matches so they draw 1 of those 4 (Karlovic, Petzschner, Pospisil and Lajovic) or is the best ranked guy among them going in automatically?

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

disgusting treatment of murray by the organisers

should be treating the northerner with more respect; their tournaments are his turf

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

If everyone else is too scared, why not fly Xristos in from Melbourne?

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

Hell, if no one wants to play Murray, I'll catch a last minute flight to Tokyo and play him myself. I might be a bit off form, but even Young and Bogomolov could beat Murray, so I have to fancy my chances

Re: WWW Tokyo R1: [1] Murray vs. Lucky Loser

I'm scheduled to play with him. We probably won't be needing any raquets though.
