Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

Did anyone pay attention to the crowd's reaction when Murray won?

I literally could not hear a single cheer. All I could hear was boos, jeers, or groans of utter disgust and disappointment.

Also notice how Andy gave a very quick polite wave as the winner and quickly retreated back to his seat.

I wanted Fed to win, but I did wish the crowd was a bit more polite.

Re: Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

It's no surprise that most of the Chinese are huge fedtards. Their general crowd behaviour is facepalm worthy most of the time (overzealous excitement over nothing much, ridiculous gasping whenever a shot clears the net by less than 10 cm).

How can you dislike the crowds, awesome to see people living and breathing the tennis as opposed to Wimbledon or Roland Garros snobs

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Re: Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

Murray is the last person who cares about these things, when the crowd is against him it just fires him up more.

I remember when he played Simon in France and Simon was injured and Murray kept drop shotting him and the whole crowd booed every time and Murray got asked after the match what did the crowd booing do you to? His reply - Inspired me to hit more drop shots!

They don't really like Fed, it was to make up for the crowd in Wimby & Olympics. It's all about the justice

In every country, when some home grown player is not the opponent, Federer is gonna be the favorite.
Count on it!!

Novak is pretty popular in China. Would've been interesting to see a Nole/Fed final.

Re: Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

Chinese are actually really good crowds and show great respect for sportsman. They are obviously cheering on for Federer but that doesn't necessarily mean they dislike Murray. Chinese in general are not aggressive in behaviour.

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Re: Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

Asian crowd really is funny And they are such a fedtards it's getting annoying. But at least there are some real tennis fans in this crowd and not mostly rich snobs like someone said earlier.

Re: Andy Murray got a good dose of a super Pro-Fed crowd

Glad he shut those tools up, disgusting crowd once again.

But yeah considering Andy had more support at Wimbledon and a lot more at the Olympics against Federer, it's not really that big deal.
