Except the only thing there that could be viewed as an excuse is me saying about the injuries.
You seem like a half-decent poster so why are you failing to see these statements for what they are? The fact he had a really easy draw didn't help. People always talk about really tough draws but often they are a good thing for these top players because it prepares them for the semifinals and finals. I mention him not front-running well enough and not being ruthless. How the **** is that an excuse? It's Murray's fault that he didn't take the iniative but as a Murray fan I'm taking solace from the fact he lost to Djokovic not because he can't beat him on a regular basis, but that it was down to a small lack of killer instinct that is easily rectified. And why should Murray have won in 3/4? If you watched the match you'd know that Murray dominated the match. 3 sets was very possible and he served for the match in the 4th set so surely 3/4 sets was very possible?
The only thing that I mentioned that could really be an excuse is me saying he had blisters and a sore hamstring. Whether you like it or not blisters hurt and so do pulled/strained/sore muscles. So it's a perfectly legitimate reason for Murray not playing his best. Again, I'm just being positive as a Murray fan saying he'd have had an evener better chance of putting the match away at 1 set up if he had been 100%.
listen, I watched the Fed/Murray match and I've been watching tennis for almost 30 years. Thanks for saying I'm 'a half decent poster' whatever that means. I always try to be objective and logical. I understand that, as a Murray fan, you want him to win everything in 3 easy sets but it doesn't work that way. Fed pushed him. Yeah, Murry could've won in 3/4, Fed could've too ... but it's could've, would've, should've. It didn't happen.
I can see you are very young. Tennis is very complex. You need skills, good movement, athleticism, court coverage, mental strength etc. How do you know that Novak didn't have blisters as well? Murray's blisters were mostly in his head btw.
That's like me blaming wind for Novak's loss at the USO last year. no, I refuse. It was windy for both players and Djokovic lost that match. end of story.
Murray himself didn't offer any excuses in his interview after the match in Melbourne.
at the AO Djokovic was stronger, fitter, played better tennis and that's it.
