Re: Is Murray using mind games during matches?

Generally I don't think Federer has to resort to that kind of gamesmanship. Though he did make a small fuss about a few drops of rain in Shanghai against Murray this year, and did think to myself ,"That's right Rog, slow it down a bit!"

You mean after he fell awkwardly?

Murray, like Federer, has taken maybe a handful of MTOs in his career. I doubt he decided that Queens was the time to start using them to play mind games.

Re: Is Murray using mind games during matches?

frauderer relied on mind games to force opponents to withdraw and choke during the dark years of tennis, circa 2006

he would 'miraculously' come back from being in losing positions

senile ex-players and frauderer praisers said it was because he was quite good at tennis

everyone else saw through the fake drama queen, though

bitchy post match comments and disgusting personal attacks were swept under the carpet as 'complimentary' and 'condolences'

fed fawning media loved his ability to insult in 16 languages

poster boy for narcissistic fake love

fortunately for tennis, murray was immune to the frauderer worship cult

frauderer cried and sulked and begged ATP for weak draws again and clowns again

nadal just shrugged and continued to play tennis and beat muger time and time again

Has there been any top player who cheated/used gamesmanship as much as nadal?

Connors & Nastase were far worse in terms of gamesmanship, but they were at least up front about it, rather than hiding behind a mask of humbleness.
