This might be a good chance for Verdasco finally to grab a win over a Top 5-er.

Entertaining match, and Mayer played great :yeah:

Hope to see more of Mayer in the future, i like his game.

At this rate he will have his ass handed to him by Montanes, but I remain hopeful that it was just a bad day.

Mayer has lovely game though, played well.

Rusty as hell still. Hopefully he shakes it off in time for Paris.

Murray still playing passively most of the time.Allowed Mayer to dictate play

Mayer has a pleasing game though and he played quite steadily:yeah:

All the matches I have seen of him since the beginning of the European clay season (admittedly, no more than 6-8 matches, but on different surfaces) he has been predominantly 'pushing' the ball. He'll be going backwards next year unless he goes back to being a little more offensive.

It may be because of a long break from matches. Still, Murray will be crushed in the WTF if he doesn't improve quickly.

Kinda true. But a year ago he was an all-rounder recently he has become a predominant defender, taken a step back, imo.

He is nowhere near 100%. It makes no sense for him to even be playing.

Murray should be ashamed to have lost a set to such a bad player.

Get back on track, Andy, and fast.

Not interested in the slightest whether he wins this or not, he has absolutely fuck all to prove by doing so. It's a title and that's it.

Well, eh... Muzza won. :o:

I don't think he's anywhere near to his best yet, as this performace should tell.

:unsure:That's his style:shrug:his style is to push it around 4 or 5 shots, then maybe step into a BH

he did nothing tonight, usual scampering around the court being made to look an utter clown by Mayer - a player who has been hammered indoors in the last month by Mathieu, Bellucci and Marach.

It looks like Mayer must have given Larry Stefanki a call, pushing Murray like this. Other players should take note.

well I only saw small portions of the match but in that time mayer showed more touch and variety than at least 80% of the top 50

I also quite liked Mayer's game. :shrug:
Michael for starting the thread! :yeah: ;)

Oh, and Murray is clearly not 100% physically, he seemed to have some abdominal muscle problem? (Like Rafa after his comeback).
Some light strain perhaps, or maybe he just had some discomfort, but he didn't call for a trainer.

You saw the match and you still think Mayer is a clay courter???

Maybe it is time for you to end your season.

Calling Mayer a pure clay courter is showing a lack of insight in the game.

you're right, he's a world class indoor talent as those early losses to Bellucci, Mathieu and Marach in the last 3 events show

Murray was awful in that second set especially, really deserved a bagel for being such a mug :o. Better up his game because if he loses this MM event, he might as well end his year now :wavey:. I blame that tool Corretja, wish Murray would sack this useless clown :mad:.

I never said he is a "world class indoor talent"; I said he is not a claycourter. Look at his record, especially as a junior, and look at his game. Mayer is no Hernandez or Montañes :shrug: He comes a lot closer to someone like Cuevas, but I guess you would also consider him a clay courter for no good reason. Maybe it's time to start realizing that not everyone hailing from Latin America and Spain is a dirtballer pur sang.

Before I saw today's result I would have agreed with you.
Oh we of little faith!
