So this is how it feels to be put on trial in the court of law. Let me reword my testimony Mr prosecutor

Streaks don't bother me, and Andy looked a little sluggish against Wawa. He's had enough match practice here, he could do with saving his energy for Shanghai. I couldn't begrudge Milos a win here, and if he wasn't playing Andy or Kei I'd support him anyway.

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.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Raonic will hit more aces and winners, have higher % of 1st serve and take more points at net. What does it mean? Yep, still Murray in 2.

Though I hope it will be real match, I`ll get up at 6 AM for this, but on the paper it should be relatively easy day for Slamray.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Andy Murray has statistically the best returner ever on hard

Is this true??

Typical antics all came out in this match: faking injuries, grimacing and cursing, trying to peg Fed, trying to start drama, undeserved final based on an exhausted old man and a joke draw.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

It's true, Andy is a returnbot. His career hasn't ended yet, so he still has time to fix that.

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...

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

The quicker surface will help Raonic, but it won't be enough against the big serve killa.

More competitive than at the USO but still Muzz in two, 7-6 6-4.

I wouldn`t count Murray at all here till now. A lot of stats for "history best" count only after some quantaty of matches/age/etc. IMO, it`s like say that guy who has 5-0 in matches at Masters is Masters GOAT. I exaggerate a bit, but you will sooner realise my logic.

Though I misleaded and didn`t think that even on this provisional stage Mandy really had the best numbers. Hovewer for me it`s obvious that GOAT in return on hard is Andre.

That's why people said best hard court returner, statistically. You said no to that, I proved you wrong. Moving on.

Re: WWW Tokyo SF: [1] Murray vs. [6] Raonic

Djokovic is by far the best returner on tour, hard or any other surface.

That said, Murray is probably the best player in the world at getting big serves back in play. If you struggle off the ground, Murray is the guy to avoid as a lot of those huge serves are going to be back in play.
