Horror and catastrophe for tennis

If Murray's ankle does him in, we have a Troicki-Chela qf. Bad as that is alone, that means either:


Dirtiest player around in a slam semi

OR

Troicki up to 9th in the rankings.

Lol Troicki in the top 10 would be a new low but it isn't happening, Murray is apparantly fine with a real shot at the final.

Not surprising at all. Watch Berlocq wins Us Open this year.

For me, Troicki in SF wouldn't be that bad, but I actually like Victor. Yet a guy who is a convicted doper and an alleged fixer (alleged is a mild world here) in the SF would literally be bad for the game.

If Troikci reaches the final I wonder if he'll choke as he did against nole at the USO.

overreaction from the OP... some people like Troicki and Chela. Despite the sarcasm and irony, there is always a bit of truth in it. Ive realized most of Murray fans have an anti-tennis tendency :)

Indeed. I love it how when Murray is losing he starts holding his knee, muscles etc but then as soon as he puts 2-3 good shots together knee is fine...then loses a point and he's holding knee again. Love it.

More to the point of the thread, horror would be Murray reaching semis, considering he's been given a walkover to quarter finals.

I don't see why not. They will likely be on court around then.

Doubt Troicki's getting past Murray (3:0 H2H in Murray's favor)...but they never played on clay, so that's Troicki's only hope.

Troicki will bend over if he gets to the F. Anyway hopefully the final will be Mur/Sod def Fed.

A fit Murray's lost to FAR lesser players than Troicki. You never know.

True, but I just feel he is hitting the ball as well as he has done since the beginning of the year. Couple that with the H2H (3-0 Murray), I can only see a Murray win. (Again, depending on how his ankle holds up). ;)

H2H doesn't matter as much in this case as Troicki has been playing his best tennis during and after the Davis Cup final.

Murray's last match against him was in 2009.

Murray's firm favorite for sure...they however never met on clay, so it might be more difficult for Murray than in their 3 previous encounters.

His ankle is fine now, yes, but he did hurt it a lot in the match. Have you ever ran at full speed, tried to slide and roll over on your ankle? It is NOT nice at all and is incredibly painful. He's pretty lucky he didn't damage it tbh. So stop with your crap. Tell Nadull to stop wasting people's time with fake timeouts before taking a shot at Murray for not liking pain :rolleyes:

Also, what does being British have to do with this? You made a comment about me and that the reason is because I'm British? Are you some sort of Brit-hating bitter Nadaltard? Racist maybe?

To be fair, not Murray's fault at all, a player can only beat whoever stands on the other side of the net, and he doesn't get to choose them. People here should be a bit more wary of tennis history and understand that it is riddled with cases of slams where the winner didn't face much opposition till the very last couple of matches.

Oh stop with this bullshit.
As soon as one of the semifinalists is not a seed, it's end of the world and tennis is dead or whatever. :rolleyes:

For me, Troicki in SF wouldn't be that bad, but I actually like Victor. Yet a guy who is a convicted doper and an alleged fixer (alleged is a mild world here) in the SF would literally be bad for the game.

JIC has been fighting like a dog for entire week and earned this QF, without any doping help at the moment, so why is that bad for the game?
Fixer? Prove it. :cool:

(I hope Murray somehow beats Troicki and then Chela of course :secret: )

I'm happy for Chela tbh. He's been a good solid claycourter for years, hard worker. Nice to see him finally rewarded. He's no joke either.

I still think Murray will somehow pull through against Troicki. He's just the better player.
