Petulant Murray rubbing off on his camp. Time for big brother to discipline you.

Fixed.

People are participating in this discussion without even reading Murray's actual comments...

On paper, he didn't have the easiest draw.

Besides, draws are random. It's not as though they decided to give him an easy draw and then balance it out by not giving him any night matches.

I swear, some of you people are as thick as two short planks. He has an easy path to the semis, so he should be at a disadvantage when/if he plays Federer? Brilliant logic.

He had had the shittiest/easiest matches on paper which is exactly why he hasn't played a night on Rod Laver yet.

I understand that. I don't see it as favouritism. However, it's slightly ridiculous to suggest that it's fair.

Understandable? Sure. Fair? Clearly not.

It's also not "fair" that he virtually got a free pass to the QF so at the end of the day it evens out pretty much.

There's nothing free about it. It's not his fault that Del Potro lost.

Moreover, that isn't how things work. You're basically suggesting that anyone who gets a relatively easy draw (and by whose standards?) at a major should in some way be hindered by the organisers once the event starts.

That's ridiculous.

I am sorry for Murray but as it was said here, hope that would only make him more determined.
Fed's first match was during the day:

What I'm saying is that if you get an easy draw then naturally you have less chance of getting a night session. It's a side effect of having less than stellar matches. It's not a matter of should but a matter of a logical sequence of events.

That's fine, but it's not what you initially implied.

I never implied what you think I implied. I said things evened out in the end. That's just an observation on how things panned out.

At the end of the day, it's really not going to make a difference.
