I dont think its about revenge for Andy. This tournament will be the story of Andy getting this King Kong sized monkey off his back. Last thing Andy is thinking about is revenge.........Probably. Still has some work to do though.

he wants the bloody title, he doesn't care who he has to play or what the past incidents are - what's past is prologue.

I think he'd rather play Federer, provided he wins - so he probably wants to play Tsonga.

How about winning a slam for Reed's sake? Or sticking it to UK fans by winning the title and then claim he wishes England goes under water or something. In my mind, it's not about the revenge. Revenge in tennis doesn't make sense. It's all about the title. Nothing personal.

Im not saying the bloke has got a lock of Fed's hair and a cauldran or anything, just saying he has reasons he wants to suck it to Fed in the final more so than he would Tsonga. Obviously winning the title most important.

I would love one of these tennis players to push the envelop and claim they want to eat their rival's children. You know like Mike Tyson did to Lewis.

My style is impetuous, my defence is impregnable and I'm just ferocious. I want your heart! I want to eat your children! Praise be to Allah!"

Would be funny if Murray said that to Courier. I'd agree with the bolded part. Not sure about the rest, unless Andy became a Muslim out of the blue.

I wonder if ATP actually imposes bans on people who say the wrong things. I mean all tennis players seem to be scared of saying outrageous things like people do in other sports. I know it's a gentlemen's sport but still.

Bullshit. Of course Murray wants revenge. Of course he cant stand Fed. Andy wants to be number one and win number of grand slams. Federer is in the way. He wants to show him who is the boss. Show him that he is coming and taking everything away from him. Move over, Rog!!

Let's see what happens between Federer and Tsonga first. Federer will probably win but it might take more than 3 sets to do so. If it goes all the way to 5 sets then he won't be as fresh as he would like for the final and Murray will have a great oportunity to take this AO.

Even without the tiredness though, if Murray doesn't choke under the massive pressure on him (from basically everyone) and Federer doesn't play his best tennis, then the match is 50:50.

Winning a slam goes beyond revenge for Murray. It's the number 1 goal and if he achieves it against Fed in the final then it's just a bonus.

Revenge is for children and the mafia ;)

I think revenge is a strong word in this case. Probably get even rather than get revenge I would say. Revenge usually involves physical damage and is quite serious.

Not a King Kong sized monkey but a silverback gorilla of varying dimensions...
Well, OK, a King Kong sized monkey. But the primate created by the press and his
countrymen is only an annoyance. The BIG ONE is Andy's own creation!
It has a name ...
It is written ...
It is called Destiny.

Yes, I have taken my meds!

I would think that destiny would be Wimbledon. Winning as Slam would put him in the race and make him a legitimate threat to dethrown Federer.

Another reason the nation should get behind Murray is the fact that Australia was responsible for Fred Perry’s death.
Well not quite, but he slipped in his hotel bathtub and died while he was in Melbourne to watch the Australian Open ...

Are we talking about the same Murray who sacrificed his chances of getting the 2008 TMC title just to get an unnecessary win over Fed?

it's not about revenge. murray has to prove it on court mano y mano. it's not about talk or gamesmanship. it's about Taking his first grand slam away from someone who has 15.

. Do you have a preference?

ANDY MURRAY: It's tough. Obviously, both are obviously great players. Federer's record in slams is amazing. You know, everyone knows he's one of the best players ever. So, you know, it would be incredibly tough to beat him. But if I was to win a slam against him in the final, it would make it extra special

He'd love to put EgoFed in his place.

I think Murray would love to win a GS Vs Fed cos he's GOAT, rather than anything else. Although Fed has annoyed Murray in the past I think they are over it and Sunday will be an amicable occassion no matter who the victor is.

Yeah...but I'm not sure Murray is happy after todays performance by TMF. Be careful what you wish for!

It would irk me if my opponent says he beats me when it counts, implying that other results are meaningless.

Andy is proud enough and good enough to want to set the record straight. Power to him.

Talk is cheap.. Murray has to go out there and DO IT!!!! Murray has been alot of talk over the past year and little do. If he goes out and gets blitzed and smoked by Fed what will his excuse be considering he has been playing the best tennis out of anyone in the AO?

On the 31 January, 2010, Andy Murray's triumphant roar at the Australian Open was echoed 10,500 miles away
in his home town of Dunblane, Scotland.
A local seer, Thomas the Rhymer, asked: If the speed of sound is 343*meters per second, when did we know?

Anyone who read Federer's press conference quotes following the Tsonga win would want ANYONE to take revenge on the man. Why? Because the absence of any humility and omnipresent excuse-uttering (yes, mono excuse was amazingly brought up again...like a bad itch, I might add) is disgraceful for the "face" of men's tennis.

Interestingly enough, it seems that like his egotistic counterpart Jay Leno, when one's ego rages beyond control, some part of the guilty party's face becomes abnormally large (the chin for Leno...the nose for Federer);)

Andy, could easily make excuses just like the arrogant Swiss did about the Cinci and the US Open loss, but does he? The London match not so much that's why I am worried he may lose, but Federer always has some bullsh!t excuse when he loses.

Blame Tsonga for that. Or rather his coach. I think Vinogradski loves Federer (as all the French do) and the only reason Tsonga beat Djokovic in the qtrfinal was to help Federer to go through into the final as smooth and quickly as possible. Seriously, watch the replay of both matches and look at the face of Tsonga's coach. He had a satisfying smile when Fed was beating Tsonga as a ballboy.

the main thing with Tsonga today was nerves and mental fatigue, its a much bigger test to beat Fed thesedays than Djokovic the choker :lol:

:rolls:

The guy fights injuries for all his tennis life and isn't a junior at AO either. Tsonga tanked the semi. Hell, he was even told not to take a set of Fed cause the monoFed was too scared not to get as much rest as Murray before the final. Wait, he'll bring up this issue in his press conference after the final, I can bet on it.

That comment about 150,000 years since a Brit won a slam may come back and bite Roger up the ass. That will do nothing but fire up Murray.

Wouldn't it be funny if Murray won, at the ceremony he whips a calculator out of his pocket and hands it to the Swiss telling him he needs some help with his maths ;)

worst thing murray can do is to take any notice of any of that. he should play for himself and his fans EXCLUSIVELY. fed wants exactly that, to provoke and destabilize an opponent, hes been doing that all along one way or the other, and many have fallen into it. andy should learn from nadal and djokovic on how to handle it. djokovic especially is a good example of what happens if you get entangled into fed's web.
