That's because Haase is a clown of the highest order. Murray did have a low 1st percentage win despite a high 1st percentage in. His winning on 2nd serve was also horrendous. Haase created enough BP's and that second serve was very attackable.

I'm not saying he is not one of the 3 favourites here, but despite that Murray is now a slam champion he still doesn't really impress me.

they said courts are slow as ever, but they made the balls lighter this year so it plays a little faster.
remember when they had new balls at RG in 2009 and 2010 and it played really fast there as well?

I think DelPo definately had a chance, in the FITD games I really doubted who I should pick but Murray kinda always dispatches Juan Martin with ease. Hopefully Potro can make it this year.

I respect your opinion. I just always think he starts slow in tournaments. Do you not think his FH was good today? I think he has improved.

Yeah he kinda does always start slow in tournaments. US Open 2011 he even needed 5 sets against Haase.
His FH definately improved, and he can beef up his first serve as well.

I don't deny that he CAN play really, really good. Wimbledon SF and F for the first 3 sets he was ultra impressive but I don't think he was that impressive in his US Open.

Djokovic definately didn't play as good as he had earlier that year or in 2011 so I don't go with the flow and say that since then he has improved significantly. He did improve a lot mentally under Lendl but gamewise I'm not so sure, mate.

i guess ferrer fans got angey?
i really dont get why ppl take things to their heart.

tennis fans are crazy Joe and i think fed fans are the craziest bc i have a feeling they want a player who i wont say his name will be proven guilty of something just to help them deal with fed lose or h2h, its silly.
yes he lost and a lot of times to this player, deal with it he has 17 slams.

Oh well.. if jinx would live, you wouldn't allow even a match for Kubot
Based on that how realistic fan you are There is no problem with optimism but everything has a limit IMO.

^^Actually at this time I thought he wins too against Gimeno.

Never ever give up

You always can blame on Kubot. Or yourself for trusting in him all time, I don't have part of that.
Btw I added for my last post, maybe you haven't seen it.
