with a game that relies on movement rather than raw power it makes a bigger relative difference to Murray's game.

I guess we'll see if he can compensate for it.

I think he's a very good mover on grass. The difference between his movement on hard to his movement on grass is minimal, in my opinon. It's not the same as, for example, the difference between his movement on clay and his movement on hard.

I agree the difference between his movement on hard and movement on grass is nowhere near as big as the difference between his movement on hard and his movement on clay.

Whether it's enough of a different to make a difference on grass remains to be seen really, and as usual depends largely on his mindset - his problems will be exposed more if he retreats well behind the baseline and scrambles. Apart from anything else, as with last year at Queens, he'll fall over and squeal a lot, which he wouldn't do on hard.

I think he's playing the same way he always has, but just closer to the baseline these days. I still have nightmares about his matches vs. Verdasco and Davydenko in Dubai 2008. He was hugging the backboards, putting the ball in the middle of the court, hoping they would miss.

The US broadcast of his US Open semi illustrated the problem he has when he stands way back and doesn't move forward and take more of the court (he did it a few times against Nadal in the third set). He gives his opponent more court to work with. When you're closer to the baseline, you reduce the angle the opponent has to work with. And against someone who is hitting the ball well, he gets dragged all over the court.

well yes.

what will be crucial to Murray's success on grass is how willing he is to control the real estate on the court, if he does allow himself to be pushed back too often, the movement will be exposed and he can be hit through. He will need to keep his game nicely mixed up but be prepared to take the ball moving forward when the chances come and end points quickly. He must not allow himself to be dictated to like he was against Gasquet for 2 1/2 sets and again for 3 sets against Nadal.

Yeah at least Sam and Mark Petchey can joke at their own expense. So can Tim Henman who achieved way more than any of them. Especially Mark though, who is the best British commentator the BBC have but maybe doesn't fit the smarmy TV persona and name recognition Andrew Castle has and therefore doesn't get as many big matches to commentate on. Mark and Sam talk a lot of sense and acknowledge the fact they weren't superstars but Andrew doesn't so much. I remember him saying during a final or semi final at Wimbledon, something about how he felt during a British National final in the 1980s and comparing it. John McEnroe was good enough not to touch that remark and stayed silent :p

you cannot compare the age or the amount of tournaments one player got before he reached a final, their peak ages cannot be considered the same way and not all of them take the same time to do so, if they ever do :shrug:

But seriously, Wimbledon is a huge question mark still. Cannot understate how emphatically he was beaten last year when he faced a determined opponent, so I'm still not convinced of his prowess on the surface. Might make a semi though hopefully which would be a good step forward. U.S. Open is definitely on though, expecting Murray to peak once again for that.

We all know that apart from last years US Open Murray has never really produced his best when it comes to the grand slams. He seems to produce by far his best tennis in the masters events but when it comes to the slams he seems to struggle finding that balance between defence & attack against the class players. But given his current form on grass and the fact that not many players play well on the surface leads me to think that anything less than a place in the Wimbledon final will be a disappointment? The same thing goes for the US Open in a couple of months. Anyone feel the same? It's about time he really stepped it up in the slams and if he can't do it over the next couple of months then who knows how long he'll go slamless for?

There's no doubt that Federer is the overwhelming favourite for Wimbledon and no matter what happens in Toronto & Cinci he'll be favourite for the Open as well but with Rafa struggling with injury and poor form and Novak being too up and down lately I can only see Murray that can stop him. It's obvious that the next couple of months are going to be huge for Murray as there might not be a better time for him to win a slam.

Semis would still be a good result at Wimbledon. He's capable of winning that is obvious!! but winning 7 best of 5 matches is an art really only practised by Federer and Nadal. (yes Nole and roddick have done it too but still unlikely they can repeat)

'Volley Highway' - Lyrics

First place with an ace he moved around with grace
read a newspaper cutting blowing round in space
and it tells of the tale where Murray without fail
tried for the finals to beat all his rivals
and play the game in his own way
be the champion........He's someone you can write about

Come on Andy Andy Murray sing Caledonia wild frontier
Come on Andy Andy Murray
One day you can have no fear
he'll be King of the centre court bathed in cheers

Net ball came the call.....Murray stood tall
though the court looked massive his racket so small
as he drove his way through volley highway
with cuts and passes like lightening flashes
where the points were long.... Murray held on
for a big return
He's someone you can shout about

CHORUS

And now were counting down from Murray mountain
to a date with destiny's champagne fountain
going all the way to make this Summer day
a time of victory....sublime ability
all alone the loser goes home
feels like time to die......but winning
there's something that's so good about

MURRAY: I'M NO CHEAT

25th June 2009
By David Woods

Andy Murray last night hit back angrily at claims he is a cheat.

Today’s second-round opponent Ernests Gulbis has accused Murray of faking injury the last time they played.

But the British No.1 insisted although there were plenty of players on the tour who bend the rules to gain an unfair advantage, he was not one of them.

A year ago Murray beat Latvian Gulbis in three sets on the grass at Queen’s Club, London.

But Gulbis – whose career has been bankrolled by his millionaire father Ainars – moaned on the eve of their Centre Court clash this afternoon: “In the third set he took a medical time-out when it was five-all.

“Actually he didn’t have anything wrong with him. He just broke my rhythm and I wasn’t an experienced enough player to deal with that at the time.”

Apart from Gulbis getting his facts wrong – Murray actually took his break in the first set at 6-5 down and went on to lose it 7-5 – the Scot said he was shocked by Gulbis’ dig.

He pointed out he withdrew from Queen’s the day after his victory due to a thumb injury.

“So that’s very disappointing to hear,” he said. “I never once used any of the rules that certain players have used to try to gain an upper-hand in a match or to slow my opponent down or anything. Definitely when I played him at Queen’s that was not the case.”

Murray said Gulbis had said nothing at the time of their clash, adding: “I didn’t know there was a problem (with him). But I couldn’t grip the racket the following day.

“There are so many things in matches where guys take toilet breaks, injury time-outs, delay you sometimes when you are trying to serve.

“It happens all the time. In 50 per cent of the matches here, guys will have problems on court with line-calls and stuff. It’s just part of sport, I guess.

“It’s a bit like diving in football. It does go on and certain players do it and certain players don’t. I’m one of the guys who doesn’t do it.”

Gulbis :o Apparently good memory isn't your strongest suit.

Though it's not like Gulbis is the only one making factual mistakes. "Today’s second-round opponent Ernests Gulbis has accused Murray of faking injury the last time they played." You would think that a journalist would have done a bit of research - the last time they played was in St. Petersburg, not a year ago.

Gulbis wouldn't be the only player being bankrolled by their rich parents. That is no reason to discredit the guy or make him seem less of a player than Murray or anyone else. Anyone know Murray's background? Sure he may seem like a tradesman or a working class hero, but who knows? Maybe his family is also well-heeled.

Did you see the match? If a player hurts himself, he's going to get treated. How often do you see Murray call the trainer?

He hurt his thumb right at the end of the 1st set and that's the injury that caused him to withdraw from the tournament. He slipped at 1-0 in the 3rd set and it was a pretty bad slip. It was not 4-4 or 5-5. It was right at the start of the set.

He called the trainer in the first set for the thumb injury which caused him to later with withdraw. Right at the start of the 3rd set, he slipped pretty badly and jarred his groin. The trainer was already out and just gave Murray's groin a massage. It wasn't an injury timeout.

Thanks, I remember the slip now. Perhaps it did interfere with Gulbis's concentration but then so do a lot of things :lol: And obviously Murray didn't do it on purpose. I hope they both talk it out before or after the match so that there are no hard feelings or misunderstandings.

If there was actually a player that was truly british, unlike Murray, and let's say he's seeded 12 and they meet in the semis, who would britain root for?Any real Britsh tennis fan would root for Murray trust me! The Britsh have had enough of "truly British" tennis stars, pampered, lilly livered upper class twits who don't know how to struggle and fight because everything has been handed to them on a silver plate along with a nice middle to upper class pie crust! Murray is the exception and thank God! If a British person who grew up on a council estate ever wins Wimbledon, I'll eat my hat ;)
When did Ernie say this exactly? Surely he hasn't said this in the last day ot two? Have the press just quoted something he said in his after match press conference from last year?
God, I cannot stand Andrew Castle, the man is so damn smug about everything! He was saying that Murray will beat Ernie in straight sets. Hmph, I'm not so sure. Castle is an example of a "truly British" player who was pretty damned crap imho and who has managed to get a lovely little media career going off the back of being British number one which means he was trounced each match by almost everyone.

He did say it 2 days ago after his match with Ghedin:

Q. The next game could be against Andy Murray, and you've lost twice to Andy in the past. is that something that you look forward to, to testing yourself again against Andy?

ERNESTS GULBIS: Well, first time I lost against him, it was ‑‑

Q. Queen's?

ERNESTS GULBIS: It was Queen's, but it was a strange match because I played pretty well, he played ‑‑ I don't remember how he played, but I had a good feeling. In the third set he took medical time out when it was 5‑All. Actually he didn't have nothing, he just broke my rhythm, and I wasn't an experienced enough player to deal with that at the time.

And then St. Petersburg, I just was tired of the season, so I was happy to play ‑‑ I was trying to play a good match, but I was already in my mind home. I mean, of course I don't say that I would beat him, but ‑‑ so those two matches I lost against him, but I think now if we play in this tournament, I think it's going to be like a new match and the past won't count so much.

That match was hilarious, there were medical time-outs, moaning, thumb staring at every lost point, few located and full body massages between the games, but that is all within the rules. Was it a gamesmanship or not, it doesn't matter, Gulbis fell for it and that was his fault.

Thanks Evita :hug: well unless that's been edited,(not by you Evita) I don't actually think what Ernie said is that bad, when he says Murray had "nothing" it could mean he had nothing to trouble Ernie, not that Murray had nothing wrong with him and was pretending? To be fair aswell, English is not Ernie's native tongue. I think people read far too much into what these very young guys say and if I had to converse in a press conference in a foreign language, you can bet your bottom dollar that I would say the wrong thing (I do it in English daily :lol:) or something that was at the very least ambiguous.

Actually, I always thought the fact that he was a rich kid and still set out to make a name for himself in sports instead of just spending his dad's millions was to his credit.

In the presser he doesn't seem IMO to be actively accusing Andy of cheating. I think he is just mindlessly talking about their last matches and very naively doesn't realise how his comments will be used by the press. Whether he did it because he is just a silly kid or if it was just a one time lapse I have no idea.

In order for Roddick to win this match he needs to have around 90% or better first serves in. His unforced error counts needs to be reduced to less than 10 for the whole match. Winning percentage on both first and second serve needs to be above 90%.

I haven't been watching too many of Murray's matches because they are on too late so I don't know what kind of form he is in. All I know is that he has temper tantrums inside him just bursting to get out and, should he beat Roddick, we are sure to see those tantrums when gets beaten by Federer in the final.

Yeah Ok, I guess Fed must be relishing the thought of going into a five setter with Andy. Afterall he'll be the massive favourite to outlast him :rolleyes:
Better still, Andy might have trouble keeping up with those massive grounds strokes of Federer, or he might make a ton of unforced errors and hand the match to Fed on a plate. Or he might not even be able to stay in rallies, because Federer moves the ball around so well and Murray isn't an utter notch above when it comes to retrieving and making opponents work for points.

In short, walk over for Fed. Andy don't bother turning up if YOU do make it past Roddick. :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

I'm sure Fed will have the advantage when it comes to serving as well, afterall Andy's not the best returner on tour. Federer's backhand will hold up against Andy's 2HBH for sure.

Albeit downright eligible I do find your enthusiasm for Andy "Talking Large" Murray pretty disturbing - considering your comment of late referring to Roger's alleged lack of sportsmanship:

[...]but I just wish Federer would try to be humble...which he never is[...]

this is just disgraceful, imagine at the AO if the aussies interviewed murray about Hewitt contstanly

I don't think he'll have to play the match of his life. For Murray to beat Federer at Wimbledon, he won't be playing spectacular tennis. His goal will be to drag Federer's level down, not raise his own to new heights. He will do what he always does: go after Federer's backhand and extract errors.

Federer is clearly favourite, whether this is 3 sets or 5 sets, at Wimbledon or at Nottingham. Of course, if Federer does win people will start banging on about how Federer always beats Murray in the slams. The fact is that Federer should win that match (if it happens) no matter what the format is. He's a better grass court player.

Where to start?

Nadal did not win a single tiebreak against Federer in the Wuimbledon 2008 final. he won two sets 6-4 and the final set 9-7.

Fed beat nadal in 4 sets in the first Wimbledon final they played. That is not a crushing scoreline. The second final was closer still, given that it went 5 sets and Federer was largely outplayed from the baseline in that match.

Also, Federer had gotten over his mono long before last year's final. He was even over it before the Australian Open 2008 started.

I'm not sure who you think I'm cliquey with. Any perceived clique is superficial. MTF likes to assign posters into certain groups. I like a variety of different posters, some of whom don't like the same players I do. You're way off if you think I'm cliquey, since my arguments have little to do with who is involved.

You have to be a bit more specific. I genuinely have no idea what I clique I supposedly belong to, since I'm largely on my own when I argue. I was even having a go at some Murray fans the other day. :lol:

Muzza has a lot of a chance on winning this thing, and even as a Fed fan, I wouldn't really mind since Roger already got the FO this year and we couldn't possibly ask for more, so no matter what happens, whomever wins, deserves it :yeah:

all I feel is a bit for Murray, because the pressure and the expectations are SO high, he says he's not feeling the heat, but even someone who had a lot of GS final experience and was on foreign soil (even if the french love him as one of their own :lol: ) like Roger felt the pressure, I can only imagine how much Murray is feeling right now :unsure:

You defend him well and I appreciate that but (as a lurker) I can't help but notice a recent shift in your arrogance and attitude toward many...perhaps you've moved up the ranking like Murray as a poster but the 'down to earth' feel has been lost.

Tis weird....even the most honest, socialist peeps become driven monsters with success...you've went from a humble, passionate, confident guy to an elite snob (maybe not quite) who thinks he has reached a level now.

I've two friends on here who made good points that you ignored then incorporated in your later arguments vs the Murray haters....posted for the first time around the start of Wimby and continued...Im not so Jane come lately. They made a few comments that were ignored then you lifted them...stats as well...without acknowledging them.

I have to say...you actually did...was it because they were new? You replied to anti-Murray fans but ignored them....fair enough...but still used their comments and stats.

Some other poster (can't remember who) made an interesting point earlier - which I agree with - that it might be better if Murray's first slam isn't Wimbledon.

That way the British media hype isn't as horrible and at the same time, it helps take pressure off winning Wimbledon in future.

Like l_mac said, I've been a **** since I joined MTF (I'm paraphrasing). This isn't a new development.

No..you haven't.

You acted like one.

You've only been one for real, recently.

Trust me, it has never been an act. I am a twat when I argue. I couldn't be more of a dick if I think what you are saying is stupid. I argue a lot on here, so that is the side people most often see. It has never been an act, despite what you believe. My mum even thinks I'm a **** when I argue.

Only if I'm recognized as the best anti-jinxer in MTF history.

Maybe you'll be made a Dame by the Queen for your part in his victory.

Then you must have had an innocent face...for a true cock.

You fooled me then as I thought you were a good peep...tis satisfying in a way to know you were a black-hearted bastard all along.

Mums are wise...ta for the vids...don't go dissappearing up your own rectum.

Same goes for you I-Mac but I fear it is too late..for one, either, both...

Should be an adventure for you though.

Go Murray...

Night.

SHOOTING star Andy Murray is on a mission to end 71 years of British hurt today - and boldly go through to the Wimbledon men's final.

What you have to realise is that you don't really know anyone on here. I don't really know anyone on here. I am defined on here by, arguably, the worst part of my personality: being argumentative. There are so many idiots on here that it brings out the worst in me. For that reason, I am one of the biggest ****s on the forum. It's a bit of defect that I'm working on. I'm trying to be less aggressive when I argue. When I'm not arguing, I'm sound. :shrug:

The problem is that you won't often find me on here not arguing, so you don't have experience of me not being a twat unless you frequent Non-Tennis in the off-season. :lol:

Hah, I like the strapline to that BBC piece:

"Andy Roddick's coach Larry Stefanki says Andy Murray's "court sense" is one of his greatest assets, but adds that the Scot needs to be more offensive."

Should come to MTF. Could learn to be a complete **** here.

That's pretty good by The Sun's standards.

The Daily Record will likely photoshop Muzza's head onto Mel Gibson's body and have him perched on horseback with a speech bubble that says "Freedom!"

These twats are as subtle as a brick to the face.
