When you go on court, you should play your best at the moment.

As usual, when his is going down, Murray plays his "mater dolorosa" negative behaviours: touched his back many times, shaked his left hand, bang his racquet with his fist, at the end shaked his right wrist.

He needs pep pills or a good therapy for his bloddy negativity.

Baghdatis ketp cool and got him down.

Wrong, Federer's ground game was ABYSMAL, yet Del Potro STILL needed five titanic sets and was two points from defeat. Look at Fed's history of owning 'ballbashers' and 'power players' and then tell me Del Potro 'took the match from him' :lol:

Fed played 50000x better against both Soderling in 09 RG and Murray in 2010 AO.

Del Potro is a fluke, he's a factory player whereas Djokovic to his credit is a lot more complete as a whole, certainly technically.

I didn't see the match but, regardless of Murray's performance, it's a good win for Baghdatis over a top player. Hopefully he can continue to play a good standard in the rest of this tournament and beyond.

As for Murray, you say he wasn't really playing very competitive tennis. I hope it was a tank of sorts and not signs of a mental tailspin like last year.

I think Murray is likely to spend the next few years of his career purely with the aim of winning a slam. I still see him playing competitively in the Masters and challenging for those titles to keep up his ranking. He has played good tennis this year (in spells). Hopefully he'll be back to his best by Indian Wells.

IIRC his winner to UE stats was something like 26-50something- that's poor.

Federer controls the destiny of his matches unlike Nadal- if he plays to a decent level for 3 sets, he'll beat a Del Potro, a Murray or a Soderling with ease. Because he stunk the joint out so badly in that final it allowed JMDP to nab a GS.

http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/scores/stats/day19/1701ms.html

This was another very poor performance.

You are not going to win many top level matches if your unforced errors exceed your winners by more than 2 to 1 and exceed an average of 15 a set as in the AO final.

What in hell was this about? Murray should've skipped this event and I think it was totally dumb of him to even show up at Rotterdam, given the fact he definitely isn't over what happened in Australia. His mentality is the one thing above all else that is the reason why Murray's failures continue. I will give credit where it belongs, Baghdatis is no pushover when he plays up to his potential, and he deserved the win 100%. If Murray doesn't do something significant in 2011, I will go on record of saying that he will NEVER win a grand slam. He doesn't have the mentality or the heart of a grand slam champion, and until that changes and he changes, I won't expect much of him.

Murray has no personality? Wrong, he's a not a huge character, but he's not as dull and hugely uninteresting as you all think.

Murray = 3 slam finals, 6 masters titles.
Querrey = 6 250 titles.
Equally pathetic?
No, just no. Murray is in no way as pathetic as Querrey. Murray isn't pathetic and never will be. Murray is 500 times the player Querrey is.

You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.

You make assumptions about Murray's personality based on his on-court demeanour. Players can be very different off court than on court.

Murray is not the same off court as he is on court, so you are wrong here.

Agree. That US Open match was terrible. Murray/Soderling would have beat Fed in 3 at the Australian Open/French Open, if Federer played as poorly as he had done against Del Potro.

Federer controls the destiny of his matches unlike Nadal- if he plays to a decent level for 3 sets, he'll beat a Del Potro, a Murray or a Soderling with ease. Because he stunk the joint out so badly in that final it allowed JMDP to nab a GS.

It was horrific from Federer. Del Potro played well, but Federer didn't.


I came for the Murray/Baghdatis match analysis and I stayed for the hilarious and totally unrelated discussion of Del Potro/Federer/Nadal/Soderling and apparently whatever else anyone wanted to moan about...


The comments about the 2009 US Open are particularly hilarious as if one could just read a statistic without grasping that guys (even Roger) can make errors when under pressure against a huge hitting opponent on a particular day. To somehow extrapolate from this that Murray/Soderling would have beaten Federer in 2 totally unrelated tournaments is sheer lunacy worthy of the finest MTF troll.


Murray seemed pretty disinterested and will surely continue to be a major force in tennis unfortunately for his haters (and for anyone who happens to read Storm Punk Lee)

He didn't play as bad as people make out he did though, Del Potro took it to Federer, definitely in the last 3 sets and a bit though.

totally agree and disagree with other Fedtards' bullshits, and it's a Fedtard speaking.

Actually I have little regret about that match, not like Melbourne 2009 final where Fed should really have beaten a tired Nadal.

Del Potro was great in that USO final and still played great to outplay Fed in the WTF that year.

He has no mental toughness. Not really a secret Murray was going to self destruct after the AO.

02-09-2011, 10:36 PM
And who didn't see this coming? He said in an interview pre-match that he'd got there quite late so hadn't had time to adjust to the indoor conditions, that Baghdatis was a very tough opponent anyway...

Personally I suspect he only really turned up to play doubles with Jamie. He should really have just withdrawn if his preparation was going to be so half-assed. If I were Krajicek I'd be a bit tired of his prima-donna-ish tendencies.

02-09-2011, 10:48 PM
I wish Andy would get over himself. No desire and no drive.

Losing to Fatdatis who has also been 'injured recently' is one thing but like this?. So much variety such a clean striker of the ball, such a wonderful technique and tennis brain yet his attitude sucks :sad:

How?

He didn't look miserable, looked mellow.
Also, have you seen him off court. He's actually a pretty happy guy, or did you not know that?

yes. I've noticed that from the off-court photos, twitter, etc. Why does he play tennis for a living? Really seems like he doesn't want to be there. :shrug:


If you're a top 10 player and you need to tank because the stupid ATP 500 rule is royally screwing your schedule and preparation... fine. But could you make it look a little better, at least? Even Steven Segall puts a bit of effort into his acting. ;)

GlennMirnyi
02-09-2011, 11:26 PM
So you call him miserable because of his on-court demenour? So, in other words, you have no clue what Murray's like....okay, thanks for clearing that up :yeah:

Also, if you hate Murray so much why do you watch his matches? :lol:

Yeah. He's always complaining. He's just a spoilt kid. Guy's playing a GS final and complains non-stop. Just pathetic. :o

If GlennMiryni only watched matches of players he liked he would see next to no tennis.:devil:

True that.

Only Stepanek and Guccione matches, and most of those would be rubbish.

How did the AO final go for you?
