Murray will destroy him. AT the very most, Andy loses 5/6 games.

Currently, the poll is in favour of Bogomolov, yet again showing how delusional the forum is. Polls are for wishful thinking by the haters...

Will Murray be winning another "singles" match again anytime soon? 4 consecutive losses now, 3 consecutive first round losses (YES duh I know this is a 2nd round match, but BYE is an invalid 1st round opponent :lol:), and I don't think any other current top 5 player has ever suffered a run that bad.

Come on Murray - get it together, oh wait, it's clay season in 2 weeks time, well, surprise me at Queens and Wimbledon...

If Murray could lose to Young then he could obviously lose to anybody (and Bogo is higher ranked and in better form than Young). Still, I can't believe that the wheels have fallen off to this extent...

Fernando Fiasco might be the only player on tour that Murray could beat at the moment :lol:

Excellent quote to which of course we must add:


And?
You expect Murray to lose again?
You think will turn out like the Young match?
If you do, you are wrong.

Murray doesn't let this happen 2 times in a row....and Young is better than Bogomolov...

Amazing :eek: . That not only proves that Murray had a bad day against Young in IW but that Navratilova was right about his meaning of the consecuences of Andy`s defeat in AO. Murray should take some time off, think about his nasty attitude on court and game strategies and look forward to do his best in the clay court season.

First off, I want to say Alex!!!!!!! :worship:

He's a Florida boy, this is one of the best runs he's ever had and he's near the top 100 now! I'm so, so happy for him, he's a great competitor!

Now as for Murray, no offense to Alex, but this is a dire loss. Alex doesn't even have the weapons that Young has. At the same time, when you are in self-destruct mode, playing ultimate grinders like Bogomolov are not a good thing, because they make you play. Awful statistics across the board. Don't expect much until Queens/Wimbledon.

Keep the dream alive, Alex :)

It's a bit strange that he went into this kind of slump after the AO loss considering that he mentioned after the AO final that the loss last year was much tougher for him.

So one would have expected he would have shrug off the loss a bit better as last year.

It's a difficult situation for him: Should he skip tournaments and come back to the court after some weeks or months? Nobody knows in which condition he would be then. Should he play on and hope for a match which can be the turning point and lead him back on a winning streak?

There is no proper answer to it but it's pretty obvious that these kind of results are bad for the selfconfidence and won't help him to find back to the rhythm he had at the AO.

He doesn't have to defend many points in the upcoming claycourt season so maybe he can do better there than last year and from then on focus on grass. He has to defend a SF in Wimbledon and afterwards a final and victory of Masters tournaments.

One might not like his playing style and personality but it's quite disappointing to see him going through such a period in his career. It would be totally foolish to write him off based on these two recent losses. Things in tennis can change quickly and as fast as he went into this crisis he can come out of it.

Miami was your only chance to build some confidence. Now you have to get dirty on clay and Queens/Wimbledon seem so far and away. Have fun playing Top Spin 4 on your PS3.

Maybe next will be your best mate Nole...although if that happens to him it will be a little bit more understandable.

I had a more worrying impression during his loss in AO this year than against Fed previous year : last two sets he looked really suicidary. Against Fed at least he fought and it finished with a very tight tie-break.

Then I expected a slump but not that much : this is going beyond imagination.

His team must have talked about that, I had even read he had advice from a psychologist.

If it ends like that, it means that the un-spoken is bigger than anything.

And clay coming isn't good at all for his confidence.

I didn't knew that he contacted a psychologist. Well, we often don't know what is happening in the background of a player and what might cause a problem for a crisis. Who knows if it is really the loss at the AO final? :shrug:


And clay coming isn't good at all for his confidence.

I know that it is his least favourite surface but that also means that he won't go into this season with that many expectations ;)

It's amazing that since that point Murray has been nobody in men's tennis - 9 sets lost in a row :shrug:

Wow, that point was really amazing. But can a point do that to you? It's true that after it he lost the set and then played like shit and was crushed in that match.
But I didn't think this time he would get in a funk as severe as last year's. That's definitely bad news for Murray and his fans. He has to get out of it. He has to believe in himself again. :sad:
Does Andy need a coach or a shrink? I don't know if signing best friend Dani Vallverdu as his full time coach is a wise decision. Doesn't seem so.

Bogo got a stiff fine and lost his next match, but it ruined Gonzo's chances that tournament. Since then, I've never thought of Bogo as anything but a juvenile , low level jerk.

It's a bit strange that he went into this kind of slump after the AO loss considering that he mentioned after the AO final that the loss last year was much tougher for him.

So one would have expected he would have shrug off the loss a bit better as last year.

It's a difficult situation for him: Should he skip tournaments and come back to the court after some weeks or months? Nobody knows in which condition he would be then. Should he play on and hope for a match which can be the turning point and lead him back on a winning streak?

There is no proper answer to it but it's pretty obvious that these kind of results are bad for the selfconfidence and won't help him to find back to the rhythm he had at the AO.

He doesn't have to defend many points in the upcoming claycourt season so maybe he can do better there than last year and from then on focus on grass. He has to defend a SF in Wimbledon and afterwards a final and victory of Masters tournaments.

One might not like his playing style and personality but it's quite disappointing to see him going through such a period in his career. It would be totally foolish to write him off based on these two recent losses. Things in tennis can change quickly and as fast as he went into this crisis he can come out of it.

This is what is happening right now through Murray's mind.

ANDY MURRAY: “It can be quite natural to doubt yourself a little bit, to think, ‘Why did you play like that? Why did that happen? Should I change my game?’”

All these questions have difficult answers and you can get lost trying to find out. I think he will be a much changed player by Wimbledon with a real chance of winning it. He just needs to get the slam monkey off his shoulder and then he will be on a roll just like Djokovic.

Interesting that you mention this, I recall a match from way back at the 2003 US Open when Bogomolov played Verkerk and seemed to be constantly muttering threats towards him at every changeover. He served for the match in the fourth set and ended up having to retire at the start of the fifth, and I can't say I was that distraught for him. I suppose this win today eclipses the one against Gonzalez as his best career victory.

Changeovers can be quite fascinating things as the players have momentary contact and suddenly tensions emerge.

He must be mentally fatigued of having to perform consistently well in the tournaments outside Slams in the hope of peaking at the Slams. However, that approach yielded zero sets in 3 Slam finals, for whatever reason, so he must be feeling pretty frustrated. It isn't going to get any easier, that's for sure. With Rafa, Roger and Novak right at the top, it will be mighty hard for him at this stage to snag his first major after his failures thus far. Needs to keep going if he wants it really bad though.

I don't think he should take a break, far from it, but I guess he should think upon what kind of tennis he plays on the court, and what kind of tennis he wants really to play. IMO he does not have the right balance between these two things at the moment.

I believe Andy is a good and decent character and a fine tennis player, he doesn't deserve hate. I agree this isn't even funny anymore. All this is purely mental, no one can deny that.

He should ask himself what he really wants now. That's the first step. Andy, do you want to play tennis and enjoy life, or to continue torturing yourself, crumbling under the self-imposed weight of the world? you have in your body all it takes, get your messed head straight. It's not about slams, it's about feeling good in your shoes, ffs. I've been thinking that Murray needs a good psychologist, and there is nothing bad about that.

Also, as strange as it sounds, I think the man who seems to have destroyed his confidence could help him a little bit to get out of this pit of the pits. The doubles thing with Novak is not such a bad idea, imo. Novak was in a similar position, although it seems it was not such a severe case.

Murray will be ok, he should regain his confidence. take it easy Andy, there are people who will support you even more when you are in trouble.

To go from playing the Australian Open final to losing in the opening round in two straight tournaments it pretty sad and doesn't highlight how bad a player Murray is, but how bad he is mentally.

I think that Murray wouldn't feel as bad losing to Fedal (who are absolute monsters and Kings of their era) than losing to someone as close as Nole, the fact that Nole got his second GS and he still haven't gotten one (Juan as well).

Maybe in his mind Murray feels closer to Djokovic's level and losing to him in such a comprehensive manner (it was a beatdown, at least he forced a TB against Roger in AO 10) hit him really hard and he doesn't have the confidence he used to have before, he doesn't believe on himself the way he had.

I don't like the guy at all but this has stopped being funny and is becoming a tragedy, I can't remember the last time any GS contender (that wasn't injured) hit a slump as big as this one, it's almost as if his mental strength was completely gone and it's sad to watch :o

I think you raised an important issue for Murray here. I agree with you that he probably felt that Nole is the closest player to him on the tour and is now hit mentally by the fact Nole went up to "meet" Roger and Rafael and he stayed down.

Maybe part of the problem is in his team which is probably telling him all is ok, etc. He should kick off everyone around (even his mom, not joking) and find some peace with only him and coach.

Don't get me wrong, i've disliked Murray ever since he started playing. But now that everyone is bashing and hating him, hitting him when he is down i actually hope he gets back to "normal" and proves many wrong. Then i can start to dislike him properly again. ;)

Exactly, Murray has been a part of the so-called "Big Four" since his first GS final and yet he hasn't really proven himself on a GS, Nole's second title was a huge mental blow to him, because he felt he was close to win one and be equal to him, but now he's got zero and Nole's got 2.

To be clear:

Navratilova called Murray a whiner -- and stated Federer would likely never reclaim the #1 ranking (if Nadal is fit) -- back in October of last year.

She wasn't talking about this year's amazing post-Australian spiral, she was talking about last year's. Her opinions are holding true though.

it is normal to have a bit of a slump but not to lose to the likes of Young and Bogomolov Jr back to back in bo3 tournaments which are Murray's bread and butter.



Exactly, Murray has been a part of the so-called "Big Four" since his first GS final and yet he hasn't really proven himself on a GS, Nole's second title was a huge mental blow to him, because he felt he was close to win one and be equal to him, but now he's got zero and Nole's got 2.

I see what youre saying, just dont see the need to overly pity the guy. and considering how bad of a slump he is in, theres even a greater chance he'll do something to change the attitude, the game, the team, whatever..

I mean he could be winning these bo3 for years and still get exposed by hitters at slams, for instance.

point is he needs to change (something), the bigger the alarm - more likely he'll actually do it :shrug:

Does Murray even care? It was obvious he tanked the match vs Bagdhatis in Rotterdam, then he said he was going to take some time off. Now he looks lackluster as ever. It seems like that loss to Djokovic in the AO final was too much to handle for him mentally and emotionally.

He should get over it though, he lost to the current best hardcourt player on earth, hands down - no even debating it.

This loss just soldifys that Murray is as mentally weak as they come.

i still think nadal's absolute stunning collapse to djokovic in the IW final was a worse loss than this murray loss.

murray is just in terrible form, so u expect him to lose, whereas nadal had the match in control and had a total meltdown in a FINAL.

im still not over that nadal loss, so stop telling to me get over it, okay!

Be thankful!! I remember a match between Gonzo and Bogomolov at the AO several years ago where Bogo taunted Gonzales until Gonzo was so frustrated he lost the match. Bogo got a stiff fine and lost his next match, but it ruined Gonzo's chances that tournament. Since then, I've never thought of Bogo as anything but a juvenile , low level jerk. Sorry that Andy had to lose to such a low class gamer.

He is a total jerk, I Boyballed for him at Delray this year and he cursed at ballkids and threw his towel in your face. Screamed and cussed, eventually losing ti Sweeting in Qr1 in 3 sets. I gave him a ball when he didnt want one and he hit it at the fence almost hitting my head (ump gave him a warning) so I hate him and wish him nothing but misery in his career.

i suggest that he shows up for his next match in a skirt. i guess it will be on clay somewhere.

he has to try to change something. skirt is a good start. it just might throw his opponent off.

i am getting so disappointed in him now.

He would have been better off double faulting on that set point against Ferrer in the semis. Trust me had he lost there he would not have wielded as much shut from the British press and would have been in a much better mental state.

problem is that when murray was winning masters titles and 500 events, the british media was putting preesure on murray to win a slam since he was winning all the MM titles and every brit was expecting that success to be transferred to slams aswell.

so murray started to concentrate on slams and not putting too much effort into MM events like he was before. but since he has lost pretty badly in slams, he is really mentally destroyed.

its all the british media pressure put on him that is destroying him.
they wanted murray to win slams and so he tried, but failed so far, thus he cant even win MM titles.

murray only cares about slams, just to get the british media off his back. u will see him lose many more non-slam matches because he doesnt have that hunger for smaller events like he used to have in 2008/2009.

murray wont lose early in slams i think. thats where his priorities lie.

Murray is showing that a top 5 player is human. He had what I would now call a traumatic defeat at the Australian Open in front of the entire world against a surging Djokovic and is now in panic mode. He's got to be living a nightmare not only on court but off - needs a good sports psychologist although something tells me he wouldn't believe in it.

He was never a favorite of mine but I do feel sorry for him.

The one I really feel badly for is Ferrer.

also the problem with losing matches like this to nobodies is that it gives confidence to the rest of the lockeroom that they can beat him. that aura of a top 10 player goes away and u have to struggle more to win.

thats why i always say nadal should not lose to guys like garcia lopez no matter how small the tournament is.

federer never lost early during his domination, because he was a set up even before a ball was hit due to the aura of invincibility. it puts the fear factor into the opposition. the lockeroom was shit scared of federer during his awesome domination. only nadal had the balls to challenge federer because nadal WAS mentally strong back when he was young.

Let's give Andy a break. When a player is out for a physical injury, nobody slams him. Too bad the ATP won't protect their rank when a player gets an a** whipping and needs a mental time out. I'm not a fan, but I hate to see his career implode like Coria's.

Did Bogo celebrate and act like he won a Slam like sad Donald did?

Yes, big time, he did a big roar and looked at the crowd and put up his hands while poor Murray waited at the net for about 10 seconds, He finally shook hands then screamed some more before ripping his shirt off and throwing it into the crowd, then did and interview and then signed autographs, he has quite the arm as he threw the 3 signed balls into the 400 section, then, still without a shirt, he left the stadium. I was there and was sad for Andy :/

Are we seriously comparing a 3-set final to a 2-set beatdown....?

Nadal choked against a game Joker.

Murray lost to... who the f*ck is this guy? How can you compare and sugarcoat a loss to an absolute nobody to a breakdown against the #2 player in the world?

It's time to admit to when things are f*cking awful. The top player in the world is capable of being manhandled by the world #2: Fact.

A man ranked outside the top 100 has no business winning against someone in the top ten: Fact. ESPECIALLY in an era where it's been top heavy for years.

Murray needs help. He needs to drop from tournaments and straighten his head out. Winning a Grand Slam? In this form? get the f*ck out of here.

Dinara was coming back after injury, was ranked outside of top 100 and played against No.2 player who won two previous USO.
