Andy Murray Is Finnish

Hard to say it as his supporter, but winning Wimbledon and then Djokovic's ascent has broken Andy Murray's spirit.

The last time Andy Murray thought he could win a Slam was Wimbledon 2015. Fedbot showed up and put an end to Murray's hopes, as I believe that was the last time Andy thought he could beat Nole in a Slam final, with his grass pedigree. Then Djoker embarrassed Fed in that final and Murray bent over to Anderson on the US Open as Nole dominated Fed again.

After winning Wimbledon, Murray lost a year and a half with injury and mostly lack of direction. He has repeatedly shuffled his team around since the Mauresmo appointment, and has now resorted to adding his snooker pals into the mix.

2015 was a consistent year, especially on clay, but his Slam runs got worse throughout the year, and possum Nole forever destroyed his hopes of winning the Australian, as evidenced by the carefree attempt in the 2016 final.

Since 2014, Andy has no heart to go long distances with Novak anymore, and bails out with awful ballbashing. He looks confused returning Federer's serves, and his own serving has gone down the drain.

He has a good slice serve in the deuce court, but that gets brutalised by Novak, and even as his second serve speed is going up, it falls apart in the 30-30 crunch moments.

He is looking for distractions in matches, especially when he has a marginal lead to protect. Spider-cam, crowd moving, women's balls, bad calls, anything so he can lose a point and look at his box and rail against the world.

And worst of all, he finally looks a step slower, and appears to be turning into a gutless choker against mugs.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

He is still the same. I predict that he'll win one more slam before his retirement. Nothing more, Nothing less.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

Muzza is a guy that's easy to underestimate, but this won't be the first time he's played badly during this period.

Probably won't do as well on the clay as he did last season. Health provided, I can see him sweeping the grass court season (quote bait). Now that's a sweeping assumption that he will actually play as well as he did in 2012 especially, but 2013 as well obviously. As long as his physicality hasn't declined, neither has he. For now, I consider his IW/Miami form an anomaly.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

So in about 20 days we go from 'The upgrade of Murray is almost complete' and 'Who will stop this Botray' to saying he's been finished over the past year and a half?

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

Bloody hell what a kneejerk reaction, let me remind everyone that it was only 2 months ago Murray was playing in a slam final, so he's played a couple of bad tournaments so what??? people need to get a grip, lets wait and see where he is after the clay swing and we should have a better idea of where he is.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

Good.

But seriously, Murray always puts in these flop performances. Doesn't mean he's finished; just means he'll never be No. 1.

Exactly. One of the rules on MTF is that if you have a couple of bad tournaments you're done. He played AO final just 2 months ago.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

You know we're entering the clay season in 2 weeks? That's like saying Nadal was finished in 2010 after a Miami loss.

Murray has been absolutely awful in masters many times before. This is nothing new.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

Not finished but he isn't winning another slam, and I've thought that for a few years now. You can also expect more 1st-4th Round Slam losses over the next few years as he gets older.

Re: Andy Murray Is Finnish

Typical. When he wins he's British and when he loses he's Finnish.
