Worst tennis of 2007: Murray d. Verdasco 7-6(4) 7-5 6-4
Shocking, shocking, shocking, shockingly woeful tennis throughout....
6 breaks of serve in the first set with Verdasco up a break on three occasions, each time gifting it back to Murray. Then followed one of the poorest tie-breaks you could ever see.
In the second set, Verdasco was up a break again and serving himself at 30-0when he shanked forehand after forehand, before giving the game away with a lame double-fault.
The third provided the 'best' tennis of the match, but the word best truly should NOT be used to describe any aspect of this debacle.
Verdasco hit so many unforced errors throughout it was hard to believe. The travesty of Verdasco even being in the second round was magnificently illustrated here. The man is beyond stupid and inept. How a professional can consistently be so poor on every point that really matters is bewildering.
And Murray, well he did pretty much nothing that was good....he was just marginally less bad than the joke Verdasco, The serve was woeful, the backhand incredibly erratic and his attitude poor. Stop whining like a bitch and crying to Brad every few seconds when you miss a shot. It merely serves to make you look like a twat!
In summary, more sympathy for PHM!
"My greatest point is my persistence. I never give up in a match. However down I am, I fight until the last ball. My list of matches shows that I have turned a great many so-called irretrievable defeats into victories."
