This week is going to tell us a lot about Andy Murray

With Djokovic gone he's never had a better chance to reach a clay final.

He's also the highest seeded player left in the draw.

He can't play Rafa or Ferrer until the final.


The route to the final for him reads: Gilles Simon, Tomas Berdych, and then a semi final against either Djokovic's conqueror Grigor Dimitrov, Jo Wilfried-Tsonga, or his arch nemesis Stanislas Wawrinka who dismantled him two weeks ago.

Win those three matches and he has a one time crack at Rafa.

Who will be his undoing?

Re: This week is going to tell us a lot about Andy Murray

He will get double bageled in the final though. I'd tank the match and then blame the court because other top 3 players lost too

He'll still lose before the Final. There's 3-4 players in his section who are better than him on Clay...

A nadal-murray final would be ugly.

Re: This week is going to tell us a lot about Andy Murray

Not really. Andy usually takes a lot of matches to adjust to a surface. Even with some top seeds out I don't expect him to do much here.

His match against Nadal in Monte Carlo went to 3 sets.

Re: This week is going to tell us a lot about Andy Murray

Almost all of the remaining players of his part of the draw are better than him on clay...

Clayga will dismantle him!

Proud supporter of El Tio , the greatest genius alive!

Alchimists transform iron into gold. Boriiiiiing!
Movie-makers transform dreams into reality. Yeah, whatever...
El Tio transforms Dull into a multiple GS champion! Daaaaamn!

El Tio has the keys to weather, court speed, draw making, umpires' decisions and perception of time between points, top players' fatherhood, and my libido!

This signature is in no way ironic. Please don't ever let El Tio think that, for my sake!

If Murray wins Madrid that will be the biggest joke of the year, shame everyone.

It would also be R-rated.

Should beat Simon and Berdshit but he'll come unstuck against either Tsonga or Wawrinka.

Just imagine another Murray-Ferrer mugfest as a final of a M1000, just like Miami, but this time on clay
