Can We still expect a good performance by Andy Murray at Wimbledon this year ?

I mean, he's had an injury which made him withdraw from RG and Rome. Having the Aegon championships around the corner, I thought he would play well there. Watching that tournament, especially the semi final against Tsonga and the final too, I can honestly say, he did horrible. But is he really going to do something more at this year's Wimbledon ? cause playing like that, I doubt it

He'll reach the semis and get routined by one of the top 4 yet again. USO 2012 was one of the biggest flukes in tennis history. No Rafa, Fed gets routined by his master, Murray beats Berdych through tornado winds, and it takes one of the worst performances by Djokovic to win his first and only slam.

Sounds less and less like a fluke and more and more like a list of excuses

indeed

Murray will Wimbledon this year OP. Do not worry your pretty little head. The Scotsman's march to the title will be ruthless and emphatic. He will drop a maximum of one set.

Sit back, crack open a few cold beers and enjoy the spectacle. Its nearly time for British domination again. Just like the old days....................

Injury

Nothing more than a nibble. He was already training on grass with 100% intensity during the first week of Roland Garros.

I expect a good performance one match, a nail biter the next, a good performance after that, one more nail biter..

But his performances won't matter. Only Federer playing out of his wrinkling skin is stopping Murray here

He basically avoided an embarrassment at RG and has been preparing on grass already

The game bores me now

Federer - Del Potro

Anything less than winning the title without dropping a set would surely be unacceptable.

Because he can't have a good performance and a "nail biter" eh?

Just too good for that.

Nadal played shit in first rounds of RG and then he switched on. People must to understand that a preparatory tournament is that, a preparation for the big event and nothing more.

Yep Murray looks terrible. Should have won Queens in straights.

Murray will surely reach the semis (unless he's unfortunate enough to be drawn in Nadal's quarter) and probably the finals. Good chance of winning, too.

The stupidity of people on here amazes me at time.

FOR THE LAST TIME, A 250 EVENT, OR EVEN A HIGHER LEVEL TUNE UP EVENT,GIVES NO INDICATION OF FORM AT SLAMS!

Murray played shit at Brisbane but still won, and he made the AO Final.

He played shit at Cincy, went out second round, but won the USO.

Last year at Queens he went out second round, but made Wimbledon final.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.
