Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

Andy Murray:

Quote:
"I'd sign up to be in the quarter-finals against Rafa tomorrow if someone offered me that. You could say if I get through that match then the semi-final might not be as tough, but if you want to win the biggest tournaments you have to beat the best players in the world. It doesn't really matter where they are in the draw."

Re: Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

lol. Good good. Let's hope that happens. He won't be reaching the semis if he meets Rafa before that. We all know Rafa rules his ass.

Well he's not going to say: "tbh Rafa's destroyed me at Wimbledon a couple of times, I'd probably give him a walkover" - is he?

Re: Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

He's hardly going to say anything different is he? But like Djokovic's- "I know I can beat him", let's see how that translates to the court.

Re: Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

This pushing one slam fluke has been talking quite a bit of shit recently about his betters. We all know how Nadal vs Mandy matches on natural surfaces turn out: with Mandy packing bags back to Wales.

Maybe he had a heart to heart talk with Monaco and brings lube this time. Then losing to Nadal is almost painless

Well, Djokovic has beaten that guy. Murray just got lucky once. He has never beaten Rafa on Wimbledon. He has never been close. He got triple 6-2'd by Rafa after a lucky first set the last time I remember.

It's just a way of him saying he doesn't care in which round he's going to be embarrassed by his master.

Re: Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

Yes, but that was pre-Lendl, USO, Olympics. I want to see Murray play with the same belief and confidence he's had between 2012-2013

Supporting

Tier 1: Fish, Kuznetsov, Donskoy, Kyrgios, Vesely, Thiem, Coric

Tier 2: All other young players (We need a new generation of players!)

Tier 3: Carreno, Pella, Struff, Janowicz, Goffin

Re: Murray has no fear of meeting Nadal in Wimbledon last eight

Murray pre-2012 is completely different confidence-wise. I think he'd certainly have his chances vs Rafa.
