what is wrong with his forehand?!

CassL
08-03-2008, 07:56 PM
My God, Nole's forehands are flying everywhere.

kalisita
08-03-2008, 07:57 PM
His FH seems gone as well. His timing is completely off. Just go for points and don't worry about how Murray plays.

kalisita

All Murray has to do so far is be steady. :o Please make him work for it at least!

22 UEs now. Getting more frustrated instead of less. Please hold!

Wow.. Andy..

Yes - he is - but he doesn't really like tennis - so he's just trying to annoy me :rolleyes:

Okay, a break now would be super :D

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:03 PM
Nole should stop worrying and thinking too much about what Murray is doing - and just concentrate on playing his own game.

And where the hell is Raquel when we need her? Little ray of sunshine - please come back and spread some positive vibes into this thread!

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:03 PM
Relatively easy hold for once. :) Now break!

god I hate boys. if Murray wins tonight (:touch wood:) my ex is gonna fill my voicemail with wind-ups and how Andy Murray is the greatest player of all time and how Nole is overrated and he's never going to be the World #1 :mad:

Hi all, how are you doing? Interesting match so far, I already said this might be the most evenly balanced among those two ever.

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:05 PM
Men :rolleyes: :p

Okay, a break now would be super :D

Indeed - I'm sad to say that despite their other - erm - attributes - Serbian men are just as irritating as the rest of them :rolleyes:

Please break Nole.

cmon Nole. break him. break him. please break him.

Ajde!!! Let's hold!

He needs to play within himself more as they say. But he's so frustrated. Whatever he does doesn't work. Please hold here!

Oh, first serves, not to mention aces, where have you gone?

Herdwick

Credit to Andy - this is excellent. He's got Nole rattled. But this is not what we want...

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:12 PM
Ace!!!

COME ON, NOLE

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:14 PM
Break here.

And - Herdwick - you're right - all bias aside, Andy is playing a very cool and smart match out there.

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:14 PM
Kudos to Andy as well..

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:15 PM
Good hold. Still, needs to work on returns. Please break here. Please. No tb. He needs to either calm down and use his head or get angry like at the AO and let go. But please win this set!

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:15 PM
break now.. please

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:20 PM
Uh oh. TB here we come! He doesn't look good physically, either. Murray looks much fresher. Needs to win this set to have a chance I'm afraid. Down a mini-break on UE #27. :sad:

This is bad - Andy is out-thinking him as well as out-playing him.

Oh shit - 1st set over already :sad:

Please find some way to come back. Please?

Why do we care so much? I feel sick.

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:26 PM
I actually want to shake Novak right now. Tell him to just relax and play his game and not look so scared. He's just beaten Nadal for God's sake - he should beat Murray :devil:

smileitsmyan
08-03-2008, 08:27 PM

savesthedizzle

That was a dreadful TB :sad:

I felt that if Novak won the first set he might start rolling in the second.

Now I fear the reverse will happen.

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:28 PM
Can I slap Novak?


nah..

Herdwick
08-03-2008, 08:28 PM
Andy is playing a much cleverer match than Rafa did - Nole can't play his game. And I'm scared so can't blame him.

arm
08-03-2008, 08:29 PM
It's just a set :shrug:

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:29 PM
First set gone! :sad:

31 UEs. In one set! He usually doesn't have that many in an entire match. Now, everyone will be talking about Murray instead of him. After all that trouble beating Nadal after losing 3 times in a row. Now, he's a set away from losing to Murray twice in a row. I hate this new Murray.

neenah
08-03-2008, 08:30 PM
Damn, I'm a jinx :tape: I was saying how I thought Nole would play fine.

But as Raquel says, it's just a set. Although I feel it carried a lot of weight.

Spes
08-03-2008, 08:31 PM
It isn't new Murray. It is the same old disgusting pusher and Novak just can't keep the ball in the court.

Very disconcerting performance. I doubt he can come back from this.

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:32 PM
It's just a set :shrug:

You're so optimistic. But, I think it's too hot and he doesn't look as good physically as Murray does. Murray put him under constant pressure and Nole put none on Murray. He doesn't look like he knows what to do. I hope he can keep this set competitive.

savesthedizzle
08-03-2008, 08:33 PM
Conditions in Cincy are never pleasant. I was uncomfortable just SITTING there. :tape:

He really doesn't look ready for battle right now. :sad:

Spes
08-03-2008, 08:33 PM
:fiery: Murray is just so annoying. Novak forgot how to beat a pusher all of a sudden. His forehand has completely gone away. He can't make first serves. He looks slow and off-balance.

Just not his day.

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:33 PM
*sigh* Wake up Nole..

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:34 PM
Nole doesn't seem to have much belief. Like I said, whatever he tries Murray has the answer. That will make him even more frustrated.

I really hope I'm wrong, though.

Herdwick
08-03-2008, 08:34 PM
I have rarely seen Nole so effectively neutralised - this is worrying. In Toronto I told myself it was because Nole was just playing crap but there's more to it.

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:35 PM
Maybe the match last night just took much out of him :sad: All he can hope is if Muray starts to choke near to the finishing line - he used to do that a lot - but he's a better player now.

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:35 PM
I have rarely seen Nole so effectively neutralised - this is worrying. In Toronto I told myself it was because Nole was just playing crap but there's more to it.

He's not used to this new Murray who has more belief. Nole playing without confidence I'm afraid.

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:37 PM
I have rarely seen Nole so effectively neutralised - this is worrying. In Toronto I told myself it was because Nole was just playing crap but there's more to it.

Murray's a good player - probably Top 5 on his recent performances. Maybe we just have to accept that just as Nole has the edge on Nadal on hardcourts, Andy has the edge on him. Just a bad match-up or something :shrug:

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:37 PM
Now that's better.

savesthedizzle
08-03-2008, 08:37 PM
That was a semi-encouraging game.

hang in there Novak!!!

Herdwick
08-03-2008, 08:38 PM
If it's 'old' Nole he'll re-assess things and change his game, like he did against Tsonga and Wawrinka. But I haven't seen him do that recently.

Björki
08-03-2008, 08:38 PM
:awww:

kalisita
08-03-2008, 08:38 PM
On ESPN, they were just saying that if he loses to Murray it'll undo anything he gained from last night's win over Nadal. I'm really scared that they're right.

He needs to do something different on Murray's second serve. That makes me think he's not thinking out there. :help:

*Ljubica*
08-03-2008, 08:38 PM
Murray looks fitter and more up-for-the-fight. Nole looks tired and hot and flat :sad:

*Raine
08-03-2008, 08:39 PM
Break!! Listen to me.. hahaha

savesthedizzle
08-03-2008, 08:39 PM
He seems oddly refreshed all of a sudden to me :shrug: Finally his shots are starting to land in more :shrug:

Come on Novak here's a chance!

Spes
08-03-2008, 08:39 PM
Murray's a good player - probably Top 5 on his recent performances. Maybe we just have to accept that just as Nole has the edge on Nadal on hardcourts, Andy has the edge on him. Just a bad match-up or something :shrug:

I don't see how it could possibly be a bad match-up. Murray has little pace on the ball and it rarely clears the servive line. Novak just has very poor footwork today and can't win cheap points off his first serve because he can't seem to make one. He has just played like complete shit against Murray the past two weeks and it's quite embarassing that he will (most likely) have two straight set losses to him on his record.

I hope he turns it around though. He has two breakpoints. Idemo!

savesthedizzle

And don't give away points you've won now, okay ;)

Spes
08-03-2008, 08:42 PM
The second serve return is horrible. He just can't get on top of this slow serve and smack it down the line. All of his returns have been going inside out instead of down the line, where I think they would be more effective.

He just got the break. Get some first serves in. :yeah:

smileitsmyan

Yeah, right before Fed asks Andy R if he stole his sandwich :rolls:

No - neither do I, - but I do feel the mental/emotional stress and effort needed to beat Nadal is telling on him today:sad: In a way that is what makes someone like Federer's achievements over the years so amazing - just being able to psyche himself up day after day,week after week without a drop in concentration - it's awesome.

Why can't they both win? I became a pretty big Murray fan this week but of course I'm a Nole fan too, and if either of them were to lose (inevitable, I know) I didn't want them going how Nole's going...

And it's over. Murray was the better player, much more consistent througout the entire match. (the way Nole used to be) At least 2 TBs instead of a break. Though, he gave it to him on a DF.

Nole still has to work on his first serve. I don't know what happened to it. He used to have little problem and lots of aces. Today, 6 aces but 6 DFs! :help: And he was so up and down. I'm used to his consistency.

Oh, well. On to Beijing. :)

He said they were especially great to him last night when he played what his coach called "rocket tennis" - and that he had tried to play the same way tonight but "just got rockets back" because Andy was too good.

I couldn't tell, but I don't think so. He seemed to just being composing himself and trying to get the sweat off.

Murray was definitely more consistent and deserved to win because of that. Nole needs to learn to not be as nervous on final days as he tends to be (I'm sure that's no easy task!) Players tend to take advantage of this against him (like Tsonga in AO, Wawrinka in Rome, and now Murray).

Oh, well. At least he made a better result against Murray today than last week, even though he lost both. He'll figure it out. (It is weird that now Murray is someone he has to figure out how to play now, though. :sad:)
