Murray haters silenced

Andy qualifies for the maindraw at the USO despite his sholder still giving him trouble. Nothing special you cry....how many players Murray's age play in slams? How many players get to the 3rd round (and come close to making the 4th at least) on their first attempt? Once again Andy has made his critics look foolish.

Re: Murray haters silenced

Erm... not yet. Wait till he becomes a stable Top 50 player, at least, for that to happen.

ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I remember this one time when I went on a vacation on the Maldives. That was in the year 2001, I think. I went to this spa. I went to walk around with my girlfriend. I walk in, and we want to book a spa. This guy goes, "AHH, I remember you. You beat Sampras. I saw you on TV." That was like, really, how can you remember me? This guy has probably never been off his island and still knows me. I was a little bit shocked. Then I went to play tennis with him because he was actually the tennis teacher. It was nice.

Q. Were you naked at the time in the spa?

ROGER FEDERER: No. It was at the front desk. I didn't walk in naked.

Re: Murray haters silenced

What has he won a Slam without losing a set or something.

He will more than likely do it eventually, but hasn't done it yet.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Seriously he's done really well since Queens, through the Challengers in America and now here to qualify at the US Open. Everything for the rest of this year is a bonus but you can't get carried away yet.

MARAT SAFIN

Jennifer Capriati | Dinara Safina | Nadia Petrova |Ana Ivanovic

Re: Murray haters silenced

He plays Andrei Pavel, I believe. Everyone is tougher from hereon in but I agree with Evanzo to an extent. AM seems to be irking a lot of people on this board and elsewhere. GOOD!

I think it is a great achievement for him to qualify for the USO at the first time of asking.

Re: Murray haters silenced

I agree entirely - Murray has never achieved a tenth of Nico Massu's success at the US Open.

Re: Murray haters silenced

If the Nadal haters are yet to be silenced, what on earth makes you think that the Murray haters have?

I lack direction.

Chocking makes me sad.

Re: Murray haters silenced

Don't worry, Andy's 34-match winning streak on clay next year will have the haters singing a different tune before long.

Clay being his favourite surface, this is bound to happen!

Yes, he'll be grinding every opponent into submission with his superior physical fitness... oh, wait.
