of all 4 i think nadal has the most annoying habits and expressions, murray is just funny with the swearing. federer is most in control, but his arrogance is annoying. novak is charismatic, so°

1. Murray
2. Novak
3. Federer
4. Nadal
LOL

When they're agitated:

1. Federer looks the most arrogant. Feels like he's telling you who's the center of universe.
2. Nadal too, but he looks like a whining kid to me
3. Djokovic is the most explosive, definitely. If only eyes can kill.
4. Murray is the grumpiest but he tends to implode. Smacking his forehead, his racquet, yelling to his hand, box etc.

This is why Murray will have a hard time getting to no.1 and winning multiple slams. He spends way too much emotional/mental energy on court over things he has no control over (like opponent hitting an ace or a great winner).

Federer usually just remains silent. Rafa will sometimes nod in approval. Nole applauds great shots. Murray has a lot to learn from those 3 players if he ever wants to be like them.
Yeah, the right thing to do is accept it, move on and just focus on the next point.

That BH flick winner is so unexpected tho. Mentally weak players would be stunned and unable to forget it immediately on the next point.

murray does this so often that it's a part of his tennis persona. for the same reason, i seriously doubt any of his opponents truly takes that as if he were really injured.

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

perhaps true, but still mega annoying.

ASI Director-General Gautam Sengupta said the list of India's treasures held abroad was "too long to handle" and there was a need for a "diplomatic and legal campaign" for their restitution from institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Collection and the Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

I think it adds a nice variety to the tour don't want everyone having same on-court behavior, that is boring..

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

Doesn't really concern me for the most part. Nothing wrong with letting off a little steam, if he's the expressive type on court, which he happen's to be. Rather that, than him spontaneously combusting on-court because he's been keeping his frustrations pent up inside.

What does bother me is that is gives his opponent at the other side of the net encouragement because he can gauge how frustrated Murray is at any given moment, helping him win the psychological battle. For most players, his talent alone would be enough to see him over the finishing line, but against the top 10, little things like that can make a big difference.

Watch Ferrer's match against Almagro. He said Puta Madre every other time he had an error. Do I need to translate that for you? None of the other top 10 ish players even have English as a native language, and if you guys don't even know spanish swear words I guess you wouldn't know Czech or French ones.

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

Murray and Verdasco have the nastiest potty mouths on tour. They are the two most unpleasant players to watch.

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

I'm glad novak stopped most emotional outbursts on court during play. I used to hate it.

Murry def. swears more than any other player. He claims he is trying to stop it.

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

the swearing is pretty bad, obviously everyone swears now and then, but Murray is crazy about it. have never seen anyone swear so much from match to match, I mean rarely does a match go by where he does swear spasm.
maybe Safin did a lot before? Murray is pretty bad. if he was just angry it'd be one thing but the on/off whine/swear it's just ughhhhhh

<3 Roger Federer <3 David Ferrer <3 Juan Martin Del Potro <3 Ernest Gulbis <3

------------------------ <3 Richard Gasquet <3

Rafael Nadal

When he gets the urge to cuss, he should put his hand over his mouth similar to when doubles partners are talking strategy. Problem solved.

Novak Djokovic nº1!
The Golden Era of Novak: Australian Open * Dubai * Indian Wells * Miami * Belgrade * Madrid * Rome * Wimbledon * Montreal * US Open * Abu Dhabi * Australian Open * Miami * Toronto * China * Shanghai * World Tour Finals 2012 * Australian Open 2013 * Dubai * Montecarlo * Beijing * Shanghai * Paris * WTF * Indian Wells * Miami * Rome * WIMBLEDON 2014 * AUSSIE OPEN 2015 * Indian Wells * Miami
Federer to Nole: "Amazing year. Amazing tournament. Amazing match. You are THE BEST!"
Either you get him or you don't!

The mark of a true pusher/defensive player: "I SHOULD have returned that unreturnable shot. Whether it be an ace at 413 MPH or a winner that was hit while I was still in the locker room. I SHOULD have got to it."

Can't stand him

Re: Murray's constant swearing on court

Swearing is against the rules btw. That it's not enforced for Mugray is just more top player bias.

Anyway, it's a disgrace. As already mentioned, he does it when the opponent is the better player. Often against Federer you see Fed pull off a great shot and the whole stadium is cheering except for Mugray who is making a face and cursing. He has no respect for his opponents or the game, and as Andy Roddick would say he's not good enough to be that arrogant. In a just world, the rules would be enforced and he would lose every match in 2 games max after a warning (code violation), point penalty (verbal abuse after the warning), game penalty (gamesmanship), match penalty (all of the above), fine and ban from ATP (lack of effort).
