The amount of Murray hate on this forum is a joke.

I voted Troicki but to be honest, not even he is unwatchable.

Servebots may be boring, but at least they finish quick

Re: Time to decide: Who is the most unwatchable player in tennis today?

For me, the only man I refuse to watch when he comes on is Ferrer... I don't find anything about his game interesting or exciting. I'm not saying I don't think he isn't good at what he does and isn't a decent guy, just for me, it's like watching a boring cricket test match.

No way Ramos is in any way similar to Bellucci.

Simon has absolutely no weight on his shots!

No way. Maybe you should learn to appreciate high-risk play.

Re: Time to decide: Who is the most unwatchable player in tennis today?

Murray??? Are you kidding me?

Simon and Karlovic win this. Isner can be fun with his ballbashing.
Murray can be boring, but not the most unwatchable for sure.

Re: Time to decide: Who is the most unwatchable player in tennis today?

Probably Isner, and also as a match-up I think it's been established that Murray v Djokovic is borderline unwatchable

Game over. Forever.

Murray is not always a pusher. Clearly you're just a deluded hater.

I don't hate Murray.

I'm just not a deluded fanatic, like yourself. He's obviously a pusher/counter-attacker.

Re: Time to decide: Who is the most unwatchable player in tennis today?

I think we can learn something about tennis from every players game so I like watching every player. IT is frustrating that in Canada, we generally get access to Milos and American players only until the semis and finals of slams.

He's a counter puncher, not a pusher. You obviously didn't see my posts before where I said Murray sometimes goes in push mode, but he's not always in push mode. The contrast between Murray in the AO SF, and AO Final is clear for every one to see.

If he could play offensively, then he would. He lost because he's a pusher who can't attack.

Can't attack . Quit trying dude. He beat Nadal in the USO SF 08 because he attacked, he beat Fed in Olympics final because he attacked, same with Nole in Olympics Semi Final. He CAN attack, he just doesn't as often as he should.
