Dull is so bad it's funny.

Nice try Andy, you couldn't save tennis but your efforts are not in vain.

Night session helped Dull's disgusting anti-tennis. Oh well I guess serbian barbecues are tastier anyway...

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!

The clay king is back mother fuckers! Awful 1st set, but in GOAT mode in some parts of the others 2 sets. Great show of Murray too. He earned my respect today and most of people knows how I feel about him usually

Proud fan of:

Sporting Clube de Portugal, Fútbol Club Barcelona, Newcastle United Football Club, FK Vilniaus Žalgiris

Zombiedal marches on.
Murray played a la Rome SF 2011, could not deliver at the end.
Was nice to see him execute those moonballs on Rafa. Still, he blew 4-2 in the third, and that has to haunt him.
Roastovic is the Atlas of the world of tennis. Better pray he does not shrug.

Re: Rome QF: [1] Rafael Nadal Parera def. [7] Sir Andrew "Clayray" Murray OBE 1-6 6-3

Good aspects in late third set from both.
But then Nadal won 11 of the last 12 points with absolutely stunning clay court tennis.

If Federer face today's murray, I doubt he could win a set

Stakhovsky,Delbonis,Gulbis,Nishikori,Kyrgios,Monfi ls,Cilic,Seppi more and more people are not afraid of Federer the "paper tiger".
03-07 is the weakest era for tennis

The one who lose to rafa 9 times and Novak 8 times in grand slam is the goat
Wilander: Federer played during the weakest era ever.
John McEnroe: Rafael Nadal is the best ever, even with a first-round Wimbledon loss
Agassi: Rafael Nadal as the best player in the history of tennis, ahead of Roger Federer.
Pete Sampras: Rafael Nadal Can Pass Federer and become the GOAT

Murray had his chances, missed them. Not a good quality match, brilliant winners strewn across patches of utter shit. Dimitrov should really win tomorrow.

Nadal has now been on court 8:43 in three days. And not remotely tired.

Racquet smash enthusiast
