There's no quick court in slams nowadays, that's for sure. The tennis mafia have made sure the showcourts are painfully slow.

Honestly how anyone can call Murray a one slam wonder or a fluke, assuming they are being serious and not trolling, after he has played ONE slam since he one his first is beyond me. Do they not realise that a man has NEVER won the very next slam after the won their first in the open era? It just does not happen, so for Andy to get as close as he did is very impressive and if anything suggests that there is more to come, not that it was an anomaly.
What he said.

This forum is loaded with extremely stupid people. Every time Murray loses a match someone posts some shit about his grand slam being a fluke. Hate to break it to them, but it's done - he won it and defeated a truly great player in the final in doing so (not many people defeat someone of Novak's quality in winning their first). And he's been in SIX finals now ffs.... 'fluke'.. No such thing anyway, no, not even Del Potro's... he won it, he was the last man standing, end of story.

There are some stupid haters here, well quite a lot of them, but you are right on top. Your comments are monotone, repetitive, unfunny, moronic. Poor Davydenko doesn't deserve such an horrendous fan.

Only time in his entire career he acheived any semblance of success was when Nadal was out. Not a coincidence Murrays just not talented enough! And he needed that hurricane and THAT MTO when Djokovic was coming on like a train winning 2 sets with ease!

I understand you wanting to defend your player, and I admire your use of "wank", but, you know, steady on there...

No, you're wrong.

What "proves how good Murray is now" is his tournament record in tennis, and his level of play: he NOW has a 1:6 major final ratio, having lost two of the last three he played in. He played two Masters finals in 2012, losing both to Djokovic. He won an Olympic Gold medal recently, though. So, "how good he is now" is pretty good, but, I imagine, not nearly as good as you think he is.

Are you a Nadal fan, or just a Murray hater?

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

You can say that about his entire career. If Drugsquet didn't embarrassingly gift that Wimby 08 match away, Mugray would still be a top 30 clown to this day.

I blame Martina Hingis.
