"Khaosai?" he was a legend in Thailand, before his retirement anyway! :eek:
Murray's gonna get crushed so badly, he won't feel any pain for 3 days :lol:
One blow from the knee in his stomach would do it in 10 seconds... :o

It's probably a conspiracy to get him knocked out of the tournament early (quite literally) :D

Now that I would pay to see! I don't think tennis players can learn much from Thai boxers though... :scared:

I'd like to see that happen! Murray would probably lose to any other tennis player, let alone two kickboxing champions! :o

Interesting reactions... someone beats Federer and all of a sudden he becomes the devil...

Okay....so you hate Federer, but you can't deny that Murray is one of the most unfit guys on tour (stick thin, etc) and that's what everyone's joking about.

I hope he doesn't get hurt. He's pretty skinny. Didn't I hear him say once that he has almost no body fat?

Huh? Are you saying Murray is the devil?? :confused:
I'm sure the Murray camp is having a good laugh about this, too.
Why him? Of All the tennis players?
He's the only one without any muscles! :lol:

I don't hate Federer at all, and you're absolutely right about Murray being in bad shape, but I do wonder if a lot of the "joking" (which seems to border on being so harsh that it's not funny) has something to do with the unfit one having won against Fed in Cincinatti. That's all I was saying. :)

Riemann, as a Fed fan, I think I can confidently say that no Fed fan hates Murray because of that one match.
That's just ridiculous.
If anything, many were relieved that Fed didn't have to burn himself out before the USO.
But if he beats Fed AGAIN, then maybe.... :devil:

Gilbert is the most innovative coach ever, I wish Agassi never left him.

seriously... if anyone here's ever seen a Muay Thai match... very often the fighters go in and "hug" and they swap blows with their knees in each other's stomach...
If you weren't trained this way from boyhood it's really dangerous... :unsure:

Well, I'm sure it's just a publicity stunt and they wouldn't do anything dangerous, so don't worry. I'm just amused by the idea. Heck, even the outfit might be worth a few laughs.

Maybe Gilbert said "thai fighters" and Murray though he meant Star Wars. :p
