Hey I went to Aegon yesterday and watched Murray Fish until it got stopped at 3-3 in final set! Very annoying, do you think Murray had a point that Fish just wanted to stop cos he was losing from 3-0 up. Check my video I took and put on youtube of our view: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=envCNeABogw

Fish beating Murray for the second time this year :yeah:

Easy holds until the tiebreak, then first four points went against the serve :lol:

Murray couldn't find his first serve in the tiebreak and that made the difference.

Nice tiebreak by Fish, good to see him doing well. However I actually feel bad for Murray, too much pressure and he is not dealing with it. He was crying as he left the court.:( I am no fan of his but I wanna see him doing better. Watching him, Nole and Roddick fall apart on the court is not inspiring. Wake the F up all of you.

Well, it's rare that Mardy Fish plays like this so I give my props to him for bringing it against a player like Murray. If I were England, I wouldn't be getting my hopes up on Murray's chances at Wimbledon, because he's played really sucky tennis all year long, with the exception of Australia, and when you add the knee issues he's having, things don't look good for him at all.

Nice job Mardy!

Didn't notice he was crying. He was really upset with the loss, and stormed out of the court. :o After winning the first point with a return of serve winner, he just had to dial down on his intensity and offense. Crazy. :rolleyes: Anyway, Mardy was steady enough, and his serve and net game will always be nice assets on grass. :)

absurd 3rd set, still suffering the same problems he's had for a long while now

he's lost that old stubborn fight he was famous for and become more like Serena Williams "waaaahhh, opponent playing well.. no fair!"

worst thing is he'll cover up the cracks and tell himself he lost this match because of the stop in play last night.

Murray should just skip the clay season next year and prepare for Wimbledon instead a la Roddick.

06-11-2010, 12:25 PM
A real shame for Murray, this time last year things were looking so good for him leading up to Wimbledon. A decent clay season, winning Queens and having a seemingly clear path to the final, with Rafa's withdrawl, to face Fed who he had been enjoying success against. This year it couldn't look worse but he will still have all the same crazy expectations of the british press. A run to the quarters or semis would be a very positive result for him this year, given his form since AO, but thats just not good enough in the grand scheme of things. Hope he can can find some form.

A repeat upset.......just as I predicted :cool: .

Mardy kept his cool during the TB and Murray looked a bit edgy, tense. The burden/pressure of expectation, as is the annual rite, is again nearing full swing. I don't think he enjoys the added attention or scrutiny.

Well done Mardy :hatoff:

Congrats to Mardy! :D

I'm convinced Murray's attitude on court will never change... anytime he's down, either he starts bitching or it's the "woe is me" act that seems so immature and pathetic... That attitude seems even more unforgiving since he became a Top 5 player and has reached slam finals before, but whatever...
Nice tiebreak by Fish, good to see him doing well. However I actually feel bad for Murray, too much pressure and he is not dealing with it. He was crying as he left the court.:( I am no fan of his but I wanna see him doing better. Watching him, Nole and Roddick fall apart on the court is not inspiring. Wake the F up all of you.
What makes you say he was crying? Did you see tears rolling down his cheeks or something? :confused:
I don't really believe that the pressure is what affected his game today. When it came down to it, Fish played better when he needed to. Nadal is the highest ranked player in this tournament, and I would think the pressure is mainly on him to go into the final, especially since he's won Wimbledon before...

Hey nothing wrong with crying, Murray has cried before(Australian), so has Nole(Olympics), Rafa(Roland Garros) and Roger(Australian Open).
It takes a secure man to cry. It makes them look even more human, which is a good thing.

what an interesting tournament. before this tourney started, i would not have picked djokovic, murray and roddick to all lose before the QF's, it is disappointing, but then again, interesting as well to see the lower ranked players in action causing upsets.

not a fan of murray, but if he was crying when he left the court, then i feel for him, i think he is a good player but too bad the UK media just does not back off, and like djokovic, murray has seriously been suffering a slump in form for some time. it will be interesting to see if he can pick it up for wimbledon.

Mardy played really well today and deserves all the credit for today's win, he held his nerve well at the end and outplayed Murray in the tiebreak by being aggressive and doing well on serve himself.

Andy didn't serve well in the tiebreak and wasn't assertive enough and that's what made the difference. How he does at Wimbledon depends on how well he can handle the pressure and if he can win a couple of matches early on and gain confidence he's lacking a bit right now throughout the event.

Yes but also the amount of tards and haters is positively correlated with the success of a player. Call it the MTF-constant ;).

Fish like the other losers who's beaten Djoker, Rafa and Roddick are entitled to win this joke of a tournament - the top seeds probably didn't mind losing before Wimbledon to get a bit more time to prepare. Players like Fish play out of their skins in small tournaments will crash and burn in the majors as usual.

Horatio Caine
06-12-2010, 08:25 AM
Saw some clips of the closing stages of the match and I'm really rapidly losing patience with Murray to be honest. As a Brit, I'm neutral to him (sadly there is nothing in his 'personality' than makes him endearing) but his pathetic attitude is now starting to irritate. It is fine to moan and sulk from time to time, but he seems to be in a permanently miserable state. People like him need to consider their position from time to time, and how lucky they are.

Being negative, and making negative decisions (which unfortunately is what his game is based around anyway) will not get anyone any further in life. If he wants to win this elusive Slam he needs to go out there and pursue it, with the will to knock over anything in his path. If that means winning more of the tin-pot '250' events then so be it...at least he would then be winning matches and the other players would at least be aware of this (as far as 'fear factor' is concerned).

Right now, Murray has a large 'X' on the back of his tacky Adidas T-shirt heading into Wimbledon...sure, he won't lose to players like Kavcic or Kunitsyn, but right now he cannot count on himself making the 2nd week, with plenty of big hitters lurking in the draw. And if he thinks the situation will miraculously improve in time for the US Open? Think again. Someone needs to remind him that his ranking could drop as low as #15 by then. How does he like the thought of playing Federer as early as R16?

Attitude aside, some of those clips of the Fish match were pretty disturbing. Yes, there were flashes of brilliance, but when it came to the crunch he simply capitulated. What disturbed me most was where he was standing to return serve...a good 6 feet behind the baseline. Considering how well he has cut Karlovic and Isner down to size (surely by standing fairly close to the baseline to reduce the angles) I was stunned by that decision, and he was rightfully punished.

Man up Murray, and get on with it.
