This match will only be fun to watch when Murray starts cramping...

Re: Murray vs. Monfils - who will collaps first?

I can't believe Murray is a "professional" athlete. I'm embarrassed to be a tennis fan when I see him totally exhausted after two sets.

A dire sight indeed, but as for potential (fitness withstanding) they both have it in spades.

Re: Murray vs. Monfils - who will collaps first?

Murray's back is off again.

He has a weak back apparently and this has caused his cramping problems in the past - but now the back is bothering him again in this match.

His record of winning in spite of his problems is not good, so in spite of being a set all and a double break in the third, I don't fancy his chances of winning much now.

Murray is collapsing physically, while Monfils is collapsing mentally. Interesting!

Dispite Andy's poor fitness he's still winning.

So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will not be imperiled in a hundred battles; if you do not know your enemies but do know yourself, you will win one and lose one; if you do not know your enemies nor yourself, you will be imperiled in every single battle.

Murray almost needs help to his chair on the changeover. Obviously his game is ON!!!!
He should win, unless Monfils decides to stop going for winners.

Re: Murray vs. Monfils - who will collaps first?

What an awful match!

Murray is obviously injured because he's serving like a WTA player. Monfils seems injured too from his hampered movement...

Good start to the match, but now its like watching a challenger match on one of the best courts in the world. Especially Monfils game anyway

All Italian Players

Especially Simone Bolelli and Fabio Fognini

Juan Martin Del Potro

Roger Federer

Thomas Berdych

Re: Murray vs. Monfils - who will collaps first?

Its often like watching a comedy show when you watch the skeleton play, I believe there was even a kids show about these cartoon skeletons. Murrays acting skills would have been appreciated in that show.

Also hilarious watching the one trick pony show, awful awful drop shots and he overdoes them beyond belief.

Re: Murray vs. Monfils - who will collaps first?

Monfils reaction after the query where Murray clearly hit a ball out. Monfils looked at the umpire like 'What do you think this time?!' LOL

It is a shame to see the droppy overused by Muzza.

Possibly murray is in such bad shape he cant generate the force required in a forehand/backhand drive? So has to take it easy and hit droppers I dont believe, he could be that thick and lack any type of brain to be hitting those dropshots on purpose everytime? Who knows Maybe he is that thick?
