British press are stupid, I dont know which is worse. British or American press...
British overrate people then shoot them down, Americans dont even report anyone or anything apart from their own people and they are always amazing no matter what.

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

Being seeded #3 hurt his chances? He should try being seeded #17...

This shit article is just saying they wold like Murray to play the easiest opponents he can get, never mind that he played non-factor players (and injured Simon) in 1st 5 rounds, they think it would be also fair for him to get Ferrer instead of Federer...

Djokovic | Tipsarevic | Querrey

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

, this has got to be a HUGE joke , he's not good enough yet to be world #2, maybe in the next few months leading up to the French Open, lets talk then...

Supporting: Djokovic, Federer, Tsonga, Del Potro, Wawrinka, Nishikori, Raonic

Not a fan of Nadal, Kyrgios, Tomic & Murray

If he was number 2 seed he would have been knocked out in the 3rd round by B-Nard so I don't know why the British media are so disgruntled.

Life is an orange and you're just a little pip.

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

So Djokovic was right to say you need to earn it but you need to suffer as well.What do they want Murray to play to 190 ,158 ,injured Simon ,injured Chardy and tired old guy Federer with draw from the hell. So was this draw random ? May i ask? When i saw the draw i couldn't believe
how tough was Fed's draw and other seeds got it easy.All big hitters were next to him.Davidenko,Tomic or Daniel Brands huge serve,Raonic,Tsonga ,Murray and Djokovic if he wants to win the title.I did not think Federer would get to QF .But i was happy that Fed gave Murray a good fight so next day Murray to suffer like him How easy he get gold medal, I hated all these mind games of Murray team before SF with schedule,conspiracy b/w Fed team and TD .

Damn. I wonder what they'll say when Nadal comes back. He might have to beat THREE players seeded higher and most consider him the clay-GOAT. Surely this will hurt is French Open chances more than considerably.

B-Nard
Nole
Borna
Kei

US by a mile.

'Tebow Time' and 'Linsanity' are just two examples of stupendous, jingoistic overhype. Neither of them have got close to a superbowl or a ring since

Murray beat an extremely tired Federer in the olympics final.

Jeremy Lin was playing great ball and sinking insane shots, it was just fun to watch, I don't think overhype. obviously in basketball any change in team dynamic from season to season can totally ruin your mojo.

and Tebow actually has some real talent but the media is out to get him for his over the top religious arc. hard to say who's worse the Brits or the Americans, but at least the Americans have a lot of different sports and players to spread it out between. what do the Brits have, David Beckham, that golfer Rory, and Andy Murray? probably why it seems worse

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

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

Rafael Nadal

Re: "Murray's AO chances scuppered by No. 3 seeding"

Stupid article. Plenty of people have defeated 2 of the big 4 to win a slam.

Andy Murray

Gilles Simon - Juan Martin del Potro - Grigor Dimitrov

Pablo Andujar - Philipp Petzschner - David Ferrer - Mikhail Youzhny - Simone Bolelli

Julien Benneteau - Juan Monaco - Tommy Haas - Gianluigi Quinzi - Tommy Robredo - Guido Pella - Lleyton Hewitt
