As much as I disliked Murray touching his back a fair few times on the clay last year, to say he was faking is disgusting.

Just look at the last few sets against Ferrer in the next round and it's clear he wasn't faking.

Re: Peak Murray

Murray v. Federer, Shanghai 2010 is also peak Murray. He played out of his mind.

Re: Peak Murray

I thought Madrid 2007 Nadal-Murray was good stuff

The 2012 Shanghai finals against Djokovic deserves to be mentioned. He should've won that match in straight sets.

I was still hoping Fed would win it, because winning two golds in a matter of hours would have been a bit greedy, no? And I don't think Switzerland had any medals at that time, whereas we had quite a few already. So I thought Fed could win the singles gold and Andy the mixed gold, and that'd be fair .

I do wish it had been a less one-sided match, though

Ofc he wasn't faking it. Nieminem probably pulled off the greatest muggery of all time, he would have won easily if he just stayed calm, instead he went on an error spree.

But no athlete had the year Novak Djokovic had. No athlete was as consistently superb, January through November. No athlete was as complete in all the aspects of his or her game (...) the best on all surfaces: indoors and out, hardcourt, clay, and grass. No athlete, week in and week out, faced the level of competition he did: men’s professional tennis, as gets said at the start of every big televised match—because it’s true—is in a golden age. (...) And while Federer had some year (2006), he accumulated only about half the A.T.P. point total Djokovic just amassed.

That was an odd one, because he'd been shite in the tournament up till then.

That Queen's Club beatdown of Roddick springs to mind.

You got your facts wrong, man. The GOAT schooled him in the final.

Re: Peak Murray

Peak Murray. That does sound funny.

Probably Olympics from what I've heard, shame I couldn't see it.
