Murray playing SUBPAR opponents, NOT FAVOURITE to win Oz

In all honesty, Murray has been playing subpar opponents. You can't really assess his form from his average performances so far.
Once he comes up against proper seeds like Tsonga or Nadal (in the very unfortunate event he should get passed Tsonga), then I think it's game on. Beside, he'll get atomised by Fed should he get to the final.

PS: Yea, I do find his style of play extremely boring too.

EDIT: You can now add Verdasco to that list of proper seeds lol.
And boi oh boi, Fernando is certainly a looker. Makes me wanna watch/see even more of him... literally lol

Don't be stupid.

Melzer is much better than anyone Rafito has beaten. Also who the fuck has Tsonga played? Turd.

I think he is ONE of the favourites, but not THE favourite.
his real tests will be the opponents in the second week. Verdasco, Tsonga, Nadal and Feds side of the draw.

Wow i love you, especially being Scottish and all. RESPECT :worship: As a Fedfan i am weary of Murray becaue of his record against Fed. I think Fed is going to the final and the way i know Fed he'd probably want to play Murray in the final so he can shut everyone up, but personally id be much more comfortable if Murray doesnt get to the final. Even if that means Fed has to play Rafa in the final. Ok enough honesty for this century. :ignore:

The top four are inseparable, all playing well, only Djokovic has dropped a set.

From what I've seen, I'd say Rafa has looked the most impressive, then probably Fed or Murray, then Djokovic. I'd love to see the top four in the semi finals.

Geesus where were you the past 4 years? The only stick in men tennis at a slam event is FEDERER! Even I hate to admit this. Federer has made EVERY SINGLE final the last four year bar Oz 2008, and again HE WAS SICK!

In all honesty, no disrespect to Murray but I reckon it is more of a hurdle for him to play against genuine harcouters, rather than amphibians such as Nadal or Fed who are better suited to a particular type of surface. So yea I reckon Tsonga will beat him... or Fed shoud he reach the finals. A shame Fed lost number one status, but Nadal richly deserved it.

Apparently Murray has the flu. That accounts for the cold sore on his face. He has the flu. Cold sores only appear when you're run down and your immune system is in the tank.

http://www.newsoftheworld.co.uk/sport/141530/ANDY-MURRAY-IS-FLU-GOOD-Brit-star-shines-in-Australian-Open-by-cruising-past-Melzer.html

FLU victim Andy Murray climbed off his Melbourne sickbed to keep alive his dreams of winning his first Grand Slam.

The British No 1 spent two days in bed before blowing Austrian Jurgen Melzer off court to power into the fourth round of the Australian Open.

Murray stormed to a 7-5, 6-0, 6-3 victory in just one hour, 40 minutes to set up a clash with Fernando Verdasco.

The 21-year-old Scot admitted: “I have been sick for the last two days so I’ve spent a lot of time in bed. I had a sore head, sore throat and, generally, I wasn’t feeling great.

“I made sure I didn’t do much yesterday and took all the medication I could. With flu and sickness a lot of it is how you handle it mentally. If you think you’re going to get better then you will.”
Videos

It’s probably helped that Murray has met little resistance so far and has raced through his three matches in a combined four hours and 15 minutes.

Meanwhile his bid to become the first British man to win a Grand Slam in 73 years is being aided by some of boxing’s greatest fighters.

The fourth seed watches videos of Muhammad Ali, Floyd Mayweather Jnr, Roy Jones Jnr and Ricky Hatton to psyche himself up.

Murray added: “Boxing is my second favourite sport.

“I love listening to guys like Muhammad Ali. He’s inspiring. Boxing is similar to tennis — you decide whether to attack or defend, and which is their weaker side. There are so many comparisons between the two sports.”

Top seed Rafael Nadal cruised to a 6-4, 6-2, 6-2 victory over Germany’s Tommy Haas, but three-time Aussie Open champ Serena Williams dropped her serve twice on the way to a stop-start 6-1 6-4 victory over China’s Peng Shuai.

Once again i couldnt think of a better scenario. Theres no way Roger could lose to Tsonga, but he can definitely to Murray, unless Murray have some really tough matches which could easily happen as well. Suddenly things arnt looking so good for Murray. His path to the final is rigged with players that could get him into long draining matches now, plus he's got a flue to deal with now :lol:

Sorry I dont bet.

Also it wasn't all down to sheer luck.
I had been watching Tsonga since 2005, during his inspired performance against Andy Roddick at the A0. At the time I thought he had a monstruous forehand and a beautiful touch at the net playing all those drop shots. And he never disappointed... that was until injuries put a halt to his career.
When I heard he was back on the circuit, I knew he cud do sum damage, and in 2007, he reached the semis at Queens, London. Then lost to Gasquet in the fourth round at wimby. Then the Aussie 08, what a dream run. I've always kept my faith in him, and boy I was rewarded!

I'm sorry if I drifted a bit taking a light hearted tone, but I could not be more serious.

THINK ABOUT IT FOR A SECOND.

All the top five seeds have all reached the final of a slam, but only Murray and Tsonga have not won it. Tsonga has been each of the top four except Fed as recently as last year when he was number 38 in the world.
I mean, in all honestly, a vastly improved Murray or Nadal surely wont overcome a vastly improved Tsonga.
In fact Tsonga beat Djokovic as recently as last november, and that was a on form Djokovic.
All that hype about Murray is ridiculous. What about Tsonga eh?

Tsonga has been nursing an ailing back since last week, and guess what, he's had tougher opponents that Murray so far, and still prevailed - despite the throbbing back and thighs.

I had no point. I was just reporting a news piece which explains why Murray has been sporting that huge cold sore. He is playing well despite having the flu.

I think you've lost all credibility. Tsonga has beaten better opponents than Murray so far? Monaco, Ljubicic and Sela are better than Murray? Get a grip.

And Tsonga has said that his back is "perfect". He isn't carrying a back injury anymore.

Yes it is, or at least it's meant to be. Remember how last year, a certain unseeded player made his way to the final?
Sumtimes you have latent champions that reveal themselves at this very stage of the draw. Dunno if u've been watching the women's game, but the lil lady that defeated Venus Williams is already bveing dubbed da nxt Henin (altho the williams sis have a far superior record to Henin). My point is, yes it might jst be da first round, but it doesnt make da opponents any less lethal on a given day for da seeds.

murrays game isn't mega spectacular so his form and play tends to depend on the quality of his opponent, hes not like federer who can totaly outplay a lower ranked player and look stylish doing it. his game will pick up as the quality of opposition goes up. hes still a 'reactive' tennis player so if someone is throwing junk at him it aint gonna inspire great tennis from him, if someone forces him to up his game he will.

im pretty confident he will make the semi's, from there its all down to who brings it on the day, but murrays been brining it more consistently than not on the biggest stages of late.

Rest what case? You're argument that JW Tsonga would beat Murray should they meet has more holes in it than a tramp's pair of socks.

The only ammunition you have is the one solitary win he had over Murray last year, which was impressive I might add.

Consider that, with substantial evidence, Murray has been the tour's most improved and most outstanding player since Wimbledon 2008. His achievements far outweigh any of Tsonga's so far on the circuit and he's a more complete all-round player at a much younger age.

Tsonga has improved, and admittedly didn't have much time due to a injury, but his late-season Masters' series victory and surge came at a time when the rest of the field were tiring and some were beginning to wind down their season, and he was just getting started.

Should they meet, Murray would rightfully be the favorite to come out on top, but it'll be a good match and I can personally see it going to 5 sets.

I quite enjoy having a discussion on this matter, but if you are going to bring this sort of subject up, at least back it up with more credible evidence as to why you think Tsonga will 'destroy' Murray, instead of harping back to the Australian Open 2008.

Murray is much better than Tsonga - 2 years younger

Tsonga is overhyped

The entire thread is nonsense really and i cant help but laugh at some of the comments. The comment someone made on here about Murray being a reactive sort of player was spot on though. The beauty of Murray's game is that he can beat an opponent in so many ways which is a rarity in the game. He can defend and outlast players, he can attack, he can slice, he can volley and on top of that he has a great tactical mind and a will to win which makes him extremely difficult to beat. And he's only going to get better which is the best part about it for all you muzza haters. The great thing about tennis is that it can be played in so many different ways and when someone a bit different comes along who doesn't spank the cover off the ball everytime he plays gets labelled 'boring' is just a shame really

At last the truth - Muzza will get way better injury willing over the next couple of years. He will be a monster by 23

In all honesty, Murray has been playing subpar opponents. You can't really assess his form from his average performances so far.
Once he comes up against proper seeds like Tsonga or Nadal (in the very unfortunate event he should get passed Tsonga), then I think it's game on. Beside, he'll get atomised by Fed should he get to the final.

PS: Yea, I do find his style of play extremely boring too.

EDIT: You can now add Verdasco to that list of proper seeds lol.
And boi oh boi, Fernando is certainly a looker. Makes me wanna watch/see even more of him... literally lol

Nice one there:wavey:

Yeah well,your stats are not telling the whole story and especially the fact that Tsonga has been very very unlucky with the injuries so far in his career.
Murray has also suffered from injuries but they were nowhere near as frequent or as grave as Tsonga's ones.
