Bad sportsmanship though with all the faking in the third set, fake grimacing of pain in the serve action in the middle of the third set to put off murray

Re: Doha Final: [2]Novak Djokovic def. [1]Andy Murray 6-3 5-7 6-4

Good match; better player won.

Novak back to playing close to his best tennis, but still mentally a bit fragile. Andy played well, but the odds just do not favour him in this match-up. Djokovic just hits it deeper, with better angles, and a higher percentage (net clearance because of spin) and he is more often able to take advantage of a "nothing ball".

Some signs of more aggression from Andy - he hit the ball hard at times, and even went DTL on the forehand side occasionally. A few moments of reduced concentration cost him, but by his standards they were not major mental lapses.

Andy fought very hard considering this was a 250, so I think being No.1 is good for his mentality, but I worry that another loss to Novak at AO could derail him a bit.

It really wasn't, not even close to the 1st two sets of AO'15.

Re: Doha Final: [2]Novak Djokovic def. [1]Andy Murray 6-3 5-7 6-4

The thing is, tennis fans never learn. Murray fans expect their player to go on and dominate the tour.

If you know the mechanics of this sport, and the players themselves, their abilities, it's clear that he is not good enough / not the type of player to be able to dominate. He is a brilliant player, but a flawed one, a less complete one than Djokovic. Simple as that.

Rios was number one for a short period, Moya was number one as well, just as Kuerten. Thing is, none of them have the game to keep up a dominance. Murray simply can't finish a point off the forehand side when there would be a chance for a DTL forehand. Watching him play for 7 years now, and not even Lendl could improve that to a level where it would be a weapon.

When you swing your whole body to generate power off that side, it's a no match at this level. His CC forehand is fine though, especially on the run, just great.

Murray's fans shall know the game better.

CONGRATULATIONS, fellow nolefans!



Great start of the year!!

After wasting 3 MPs, this match became really important. Psychologically. I'm very glad Nole came through.

Bring on the Austrañlian Open!!

Re: Doha Final: [2]Novak Djokovic def. [1]Andy Murray 6-3 5-7 6-4

Great rallies, exchanges and entertainment there. Murray even managed to crack a smile on his knighted face after the loss. The match might have even cracked a smile on some of your faces, which is rare in a Nolandy match.

Losing his streak is a welcome weight off his shoulders. Doha isn't the make or break. It's not a foregone conclusion that these two will even meet at AO. Gonna say they won't.

So I was recently informed that my signature was empty and needed a life affirming quote from an inspirational figure like Shakespeare or Oscar Wilde...

When I die my mates had better not tweet some cheesy crap like I'm watching over them or some jazz. Watch your train-wreck lives? I'll take my chances in hell.

Especially considering he will have an extra day off before the final.
Andy is looking fitter, definitely. He took this loss well too from the looks of it. Much better than some of his past losses, but being world #1, coming off a 28 match winning streak and starting the year well will do that. Melbourne will be fun, and the end result of the tournament will be very entertaining.

I recommend you to rewatch the match, just to recalibrate your expectations about AO. That court plays fairly slower, and if Murray couldn't win here in Bo3 (where he supposedly had all the advantage: faster court, coming with confidence into the final etc.), he'll given the extra task to do it in Bo5.
As said, he should invent some new tactics, because his usual one isn't working against Novak.
We shall see. That is all.

Djokovic > Murray

It doesn't matter if Murray is N°1 now.. the amount of slams, masters, etc... you can't compare them at all.

Murray fans please shut up already.

Murray was at his peak, Djokovic isn't, but he was still good enough to clinch titles.

This Djokovic > peak Murray
