Does Murray envy Novak?

I think there is a little bit of jealousy going on not with Fed/Rafa so much but specifically with Novak.
Just wondering if anyone feels the way I do?

I doubt it. Djokovic's transformation probably motivates him, but Andy doesn't seem the type to be jealous.

Murray has only ever been gracious to Novak in victory and defeat. (I can't say the same for Nadal or Federer when losing to him). I don't get where this is coming except as just another Murray hate thread.

Sorry pal, USA born and not Serbian. I am a fan of Novak and Rafa. Maybe the question should be, why are you so jealous of Novak?

Well, when asked at RG about the chance for Novak to win the NCYGS Murray replied, I hope he doesn't win it, or something like that. That's not very friendly especially when at AO 2011 Novak said about Murray- If I can't win the trophy myself I would like Murray to hold it.

:confused:

gimp, as I said, and this thread is a shit thread. Most players on the pro tour bar two would probably envy Novak's CV.

Of course he envies Novak's successes. If he didn't I'd be questioning his desire

Dumb thread

Err.. maybe Murray never wanted Novak to win the NCYGS because he would rather win one of those slams for himself?

I don't think it's jealousy. He probably wish he can be like Nole; he even tried gluten free diet. Novak said it's not for everybody or something!

Could be, he also got himself a Czechoslovak coach. :)I think the diet is only helpful if you have a sensitivity or allergy to the gluten.

Maybe, but Novak had the graciousness to say, if I can't hold the trophy myself I wish for Murray to do so. He didn't say, I dont want him to have it. That's why it sounds so unfriendly.

Jealousy and envy are two different things. I wouldn't say Murray is jealous at all. I sense he's more envious in a good way. He feels it is about damn time that he gets one freaking slam already. Reaching so many finals obviously drives him crazy. If he'd get one slam it would due him some clean relief.

OK Bubba, here it is

But if he was able to do it, which I hope he's not, it would be an unbelievable effort.'http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/tennis/article-2150650/French-Open-2012-Andy-Murray-hails-Novak-Djokovic.html#ixzz20NLVBAD7

Murraytards envy Noletards. True story.

hmmm...wasn't everyone envious last year? just a little bit? :shrug:

it would be unreal if a competitive athlete wasn't envious of a peer's success. i don't see anything wrong with it.

He was still alive in the RG MD at the time. It's obvious he meant he'd prefer he'd win the whole thing himself.

Could be, he also got himself a Czechoslovak coach. :)I think the diet is only helpful if you have a sensitivity or allergy to the gluten.

Clueless ejacuzee. Please stop embarrassing yourself further.

Ah' you must be one of those North Americans that don't get irony.. inject that into the quote ( and he did say that ) and his statement to a question becomes quite benign and friendly.;)

:lol: Andy sees Novak as his friend and rival. I think it niggles him slightly that he is not quite up there with Novak but thats cos he knows he can do better rather than wishing Novak was worse. It just motivates him to do better.

I think he kind of looks up to Novak. They're the same generation but Djokovic was slightly leading the way so far.

I don't think he envies any top player. He really fanboys Nadal actually :D
