Re: Explanation for Murray ineptitude on clay???

-_- i said it 1000 times already ..
You can't counterpunch on clay ... everyone who had played the game and have simple sence of tennis and has common logic knows this ... For instance: Simon , Hewitt ......
and last but not least Murray thrives on his opponents power ! and his swings are short and rely on timing ... THE END/FIN/KONEC ! Deal with it you low tennis IQ-ers

Re: Explanation for Murray ineptitude on clay???

Although he grew up playing on clay I get the feeling that he has put very little focus on clay court tennis since the age of 17/18.

Research the problem he has before making silly posts like that. Not every one is Nadal you know.

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

No different from any other knee problem and it sure as hell wouldn't affect him more on clay courts than hard.

Re: Explanation for Murray ineptitude on clay???

his main problem is his fh imo.then the lack of confidence on the surface and the inability to chose one strategy and apply it properly (it often looks like he can't decide if he needs to play agressive, defensive etc...)

Andy hasn't said clay was his favorite since he was 16 years old.

Re: Explanation for Murray ineptitude on clay???

Before we completely make him look like a scrub, it's not that strange his game doesn't work well on all surfaces. We've just been spoilt with Federer, Nadal and Djokovic and have expected every one to be able to do this.

A lot of the greats had a poor surface, and it's mostly been clay.

He was 16 in 2010? Ah, good to know. And here was I thinking there were no teenagers in the top 100

Like I said, go do your research before making bold statements.

Why don't you look at something a little more recent instead of pulling something from 2010. Or this.

Irrelevant. You said he hadn't mentioned anything like it since he was 16

Sliding on clay aggravates his knee...

I'm fine with his comments. He actually made a nice post about Andy up above.

I await to see Moozza's response to him though
