Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

Which was it?

AO F: Djokovic 6-7 7-6 3-6 0-6

This was a pretty good tournament for Murray and I don't think many expected him to win. The bagel is disappointing and the fact he lost in the final was too but it was the right result.

FO SF: Djokovic 3-6 3-6 7-5 7-5 1-6

Statistically his worst slam, I came out of it disappointed that he could have won the match but overall, not so bad.

Wimbledon SF: Federer 5-7 5-7 4-6

This one was tough. He looked good going into the match and it was so frustrating and it was absolutely horrible to watch from a Murray point of view with the inevitable breaks in the final game of each set.

USO 4th Round: Anderson 6-7 3-6 7-6 6-7

Performance of Anderson's life. I thought it was embarrassing the way Murray found himself a set and 5-1 down though and to lose in the fourth round of a slam is always a major disappointment for a player of his caliber.

Overall, the most disappointing thing is that he hasn't won a slam when he's been the second best player on the tour this year.

Fognini - Paire - Evans

AO > W > RG > USO in terms of disappointment for me.

The AO match was really there for the taking and it would've been great to see Murray finally win it after all those finals.

Re: Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

Australian Open. As I've said before, I wasn't that disappointed at the time, since I was just so relieved and happy that Andy had recovered from a horrible 2014 to play with such game. But the more I look back on it, the more winnable it looks, the more disappointing it seems.

I can shake off this US Open. It can happen - Anderson was brilliant. It's a testament to Andy that he's gone so long without going out at this stage, though there were some close calls. Wimbledon was disappointing, but that was genuinely one of the great Federer performances of recent years, and a ridiculous serving performance. I never really had much hope of him winning that RG match, but he put up a great fight.

Re: Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

Wimbledon: fresh off a great clay season, in great form, couldn't get to a tiebreak. Very disappointing. Here he has just looked exhausted since Montreal. AO, was a close second, but I was mostly happy he reached a GS Final again

Re: Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

Australian Open...no explanation needed. He had that match but screwed it up. Still a good start to the year though.

US Open...losing before the quarter-finals for the first time in 5 years is very disappointing but he was knackered, sick a few days before and Anderson played the best match of his career.

Wimbledon...sure, it's disappointing after such a great clay season and Queens but Roger rolled back the years. Not much Andy could have done.

Roland Garros...didn't expect him to win. He did incredibly well to get it to a 5th set.

LET'S GO!!
SLAMS: 3 TITLES, 8 finals, 10 semi-finals, 9 quarter-finals...
WORLD TOUR FINALS: 1 TITLE, 3 semi-finals...
MASTERS: 14 TITLES, 7 finals, 12 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
OLYMPICS: 2 gold medals, 1 silver...
DAVIS CUP: 1 TITLE, 1 semi-final, 1 quarter-final...
WORLD #1: 38 weeks and counting...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 655-184...
TITLES: 45 and counting...

Re: Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

1.) AO F: Djokovic 6-7 7-6 3-6 0-6

Had Djokovic on the ropes, playing lights out tennis. Completely fell apart when Novak's mysterious physical problems started. As said previous this was probably his best chance at FINALLY winning down under.

2.) USO 4th Round: Anderson 6-7 3-6 7-6 6-7

Having finally broken his long losing streak to Djokovic in Montreal a couple of weeks before I truly believed he was ready to win a third Grand Slam. He never looked especially convincing in R1 - R3 and that dreaded Louis Armstrong court!! Having said all this Anderson is one of those players that on his day is a nightmare to play against. Also, Murray would've had to beat Wawrinka, Federer and Djokovic consecutively had he come through Anderson.

3.) Wimbledon SF: Federer 5-7 5-7 4-6

Murray was bang in form and playing incredible tennis (won Queen's) on his favourite surface. Again I was convinced he was playing well enough to beat anyone and lift a third Grand Slam. Unfortunately Federer decided to produce one of the best serving performances of all time.

4.) FO SF: Djokovic 3-6 3-6 7-5 7-5 1-6

Murray's "worst surface" and not many backers would see him lifting an RG title. He was outclassed for the first two sets but remarkably clawed it back with some amazing clutch tennis. Still had the feeling Novak would step it up in the fifth - which he did - and that was that.

Re: Most Disappointing Slam Defeat 2015?

Looking back from today:

1. AO F: He was fresher than Djokovic and looked to be playing better up until 2-0 in the third set. This was his 4th final and surely every Murray supporter was convinced he had to win it this time. Out of nowhere, he chucks it all the way down the drain. Adds salt to the wounds by losing again in the 2016 final in straight sets and then going out early this year. Good chance he'll never win here now.

2. RG SF: Disappointing 5th set, but he wasn't going to beat Wawrinka in the final. I'm glad Djokovic took the beating instead.

3. USO 4R: Broke his QF streak losing to someone he would normally routine, but he'd already won here in 2012.

4. WIM SF: Federer was too good, and Murray had already won here in 2013. Eventually won again last year.

Missing Grand Slam Epics:
-Australian Open: Murray vs Wawrinka
-French Open: Federer vs Murray
-Wimbledon: Djokovic vs Wawrinka
-US Open: Federer vs Nadal
