Gotta admire the fight, at least, if not the tennis.

BTW: Time to cease calling break-fests WTA tennis and just embrace the dark truth that this may be men's tennis at the top for seasons to come.

Murray went for it when he was down match point, very well done by him. Ferrer will be kicking himself, and I hoped he would win it as such a win would boost his confidence more than it would help Murray. Either way, great drama at the end too bad there had to be a loser.

Generally a terrible match. Not as satisfying a win as it should be, because Murray's serve is a massive worry.

He has major mental issues when he has the lead. It's a miracle he's had the year he's had, given how poorly he has served as a frontrunner.

Absurd match, seemed like a madman directed this. Both played abysmal, both had cramps and looked half dead just after three sets. David lost the match twice with silly mistakes. Andy played one of his worst matches but he's clever, he seemed dead half of the time, but when he needed it he played a couple of great points. The forehand deserted David today and Murray is lethal with his backhand. But the match was horrible, only very exciting. The key moment was David stopping the point on matchpoint and losing it. :facepalm:

The ATP need to get a grip. These courts, these conditions, a fucking disgrace. The tennis bar about 4 or 5 points was SHOCKING.

Credit to Ferrer for fighting but the mp and subsequent meltdown shows exactly why he isn't a champion. He didn't have the balls to step up. Murray, for all his awful tennis and weariness, did.

Torture. Just torture. Do us a favour, speed up the courts for the fucking health of the players.

David stopped the point on MP because he hit a sitter near the net, one that Murray would have hit a winner after. If he had waited, he would have lost the point anyway and couldn't have even challenged. Nothing more to say.

Gutted for David, so I am not really gonna be happy for Murray that he won.

But anyhow, I'm proud of the way he played. Was a better performance than pretty much everything we've seen from him in 2013. Still by far the fifth best player in the world.

I don't know what you have been watching, Ferrer hadn't been playing this well for months. Murray was bad, and that helped make the match more even, but Ferrer played very well and put him under pressure, too.

I really feel for him that he lost after making a bad decision on an MP. But I'm really pleased to see him playing at his true level again. He was very tired and cramping, which shows, if need be, that he isn't a machine.
Maybe the decision to challenge on MP was because he was a bit desperate, as he was obviously exhausted. Anyway, it's done. I think the exhaustion combined with the fact that he was bound to take a mental blow after this error on the MP made him lose it completely in the TB. Too bad :sad:

I hope he can recover from this, he's been taking a lot of mental blows lately. But I hope he will remember that he gave Murray a good fight, at least. I was afraid it might be a re-run of his matches against Djokovic and Rafa, but it wasn't (of course everyone will still be complaining that it was awful, etc... if he gets smashed people complain, if he is very close and loses they call him a choker... he can never do anything right anyway).

Why are people complaining about the courts? Do you think Mugray or Ferrer would have made the final without these courts? These two guys exist to bring their opponents game down and grind out wins. A final between them of course is going to be a mugfest. The only thing remarkable about this bad match was that CBS stopped showing it, showing that despite the propaganda of the tour and the players Mugray pushfests are ruining the sport.

Lol Sky commies saying Ferrer shouldn't have challenged on MP. :haha:

Well, in such a mugfest you never know, Andy might have failed to put the ball away.

It's possible, but it was enough of a vertical that's unlikely. Inside/out from there you can totally mis-hit it and it'll still go in, fail to get topspin it doesn't matter, slice it, still goes in - you've got such a huge margin for error.

Ferrer had to make a decision to challenge instantly though, all he knows at that point is it's maybe clipped the line, maybe not, but that he's skied it and has very little chance on the next ball. Even if there's only a 10% chance of winning the challenge it's probably worth it .............. after all, the reward is a masters title, and at worst he's at deuce, still two points away from winning.

A final between them of course is going to be a mugfest. The only thing remarkable about this bad match was that CBS stopped showing it, showing that despite the propaganda of the tour and the players Mugray pushfests are ruining the sport.

If you actually knew any thing about Tennis instead of just being a bitter mugertard deluded troll, you'd know that faster courts would suit Murray a lot better. Stop making pathetic mugertard comments, you're just making yourself look more stupid as the time goes on.

re the complaining in the live commentary thread:

Both guys didn't have their best game today, but they battled through. You can't go to the tournament director and say "we're a bit off today, can you move the final to tomorrow?" You have to play the cards you are dealt. If you train for 4 years to run 100m in the Olympics, and you wake up on the day of the race with a cold... then that's just too bad. They're not going to reschedule it for you.

This is called "real life". What most people like are fantasies, where the "right" people win, lose, fall in love, etc, and everything is as it "ought" to be. Like so-called reality TV -- which is actually quite scripted to make sure the right catfights happen, characters who are popular with viewers aren't voted off too soon (bad for ratings), etc.

These players aren't robots. they're real people and this was their level today. Both guys played higher quality tennis in the matches leading up to this one, so we know they are capable of it. Today they had to fight from their guts (perhaps their bowels) and the result was not aesthetically beautiful, but it's just as legitimate as any other hard-fought victory.

You don't have to like watching it, but to say "no one deserves the title" is just bollocks. :wavey:

Eventough Ferrer deserved the victory as much as Murray in that match, I feel that it is the right results for a good reason. Miami status would have taken a massive hit, and we all know this.

I like Ferrer for his resilience, his durability and the fact that he made the most of its possibilities, but seeing him winning MS on hardcourt is not a good sign for the tour. We all know he is a limited player that plays regulary well, but can't take the next step. Ferrer has no business winning big prize, and can only do it when top players aren't there, and they weren't there at Miami, except Murray.

Nobody can likes a player collecting big titles by only benefiting from the top players not being there. It would have inflated his achievement and diminished the value of a MS title, after Bercy last year.

As for this tournament as a whole, without Nadal, Federer it was much less interesting. The tour can't take both of them missing a MS.

a 'bad day' doesn't constitute practically every game and point absolutely blowing
people have tough days but for both players to be hitting so many double faults and not having guts to hold serves for what? (6 or 7 times straight in 3rd set), and just hitting errors nonstop

this match was as bad as it gets. even if they were with unfortunate conditions and maybe form, all crucial points and games were based on errors rather than forced errors or winners, and a lot of the time they were just silly mistakes into the net or way into the sky

there is no defending this final, especially given that both players played better on other days and shouldn't be clowning around like this

You have to be blind though if you think Mugray doesn't push 99% of the time and Ferrer isn't a fitness grinder who forces errors. If Federer and Haas were 10 years younger do you think the final would have still been Ferrer v. Murray?

The funniest bit is all the Mugray fans attacking me in this thread were saying the same thing in the livescore thread: mug match, terrible attitude from Mugray, all he's doing is pushing, gamesmanship, both deserve to lose, WTA is better.

the two just both played very ugly and bad tennis, like they hit their peak bottoms together at the same time
Well yeah, I'd agree that both men played poorly. The conditions were still the main problem though

Think of it this way. If you are playing badly on a fast court, you can sometimes just start smacking the ball and hitting (or maybe by serving a few aces) yourself into a rhythm. But with a court like this there is nowhere to hide. Add to that the humidity and things got quite bad.

Don't pity them, they looked happy enough.

Just for those who constantly claim that people who pay to see Ferrer are being ripped off... I paid to see Djokovic, Murray and Del Potro in Paris and they all gave awful performances. It happens. I was a bit disappointed (especially since I really wanted to see more of the Djoker) but I was still happy to be there. And it still made for exciting matches because there were upsets and close matches (even when they were close because the top players were underperforming, I still prefer this to watching a player play perfectly and triple-bagel another).

Eventough Ferrer deserved the victory as much as Murray in that match, I feel that it is the right results for a good reason. Miami status would have taken a massive hit, and we all know this.

I like Ferrer for his resilience, his durability and the fact that he made the most of its possibilities, but seeing him winning MS on hardcourt is not a good sign for the tour. We all know he is a limited player that plays regulary well, but can't take the next step. Ferrer has no business winning big prize, and can only do it when top players aren't there, and they weren't there at Miami, except Murray.

Nobody can likes a player collecting big titles by only benefiting from the top players not being there. It would have inflated his achievement and diminished the value of a MS title, after Bercy last year.

As for this tournament as a whole, without Nadal, Federer it was much less interesting. The tour can't take both of them missing a MS.

Well, once again, it's hardly Ferrer's fault if other players lose or are not there. Hard courts have always been one of Ferrer's favourite, if not his favourite surface. He's one of the 5 best players in the world. I don't see how it would diminish Miami in any way to have him win. This is nonsense.

How many fanboys posting here actually play tennis?

Well, you don't even need to play tennis to make more sense than a lot of people here :o

well, you must pay credit to Murray despite his poor performance. he was down so many times today but he never let go.
down a set-no problem
broken when served for the championship-no problem
down a championship point-no problem

Anyone saying that match wasn't incredibly gripping is lying.

The serving wasn't of the highest quality, you can't really argue that. But the last two sets were fantastic, with very high quality tennis. It was a marathon, and really a true test of grit and the ability to just grind the match out. When you aren't serving well, that's what you need to do, and that's what Murray did in the end. He saved his very best for last and went all out in the tiebreak. And that's what champions do. He's demonstrating the ability to grind out a match when not playing your best.

Congratulations to the new world number two, and a very well played match by the new world number four. Both well deserved.

Look i know you're his fan and all, but Murray's attitude today was ugly. He seemed like he didn't want to be there half the time, walked like a zombie just to play a couple of great points afterwards, picked up a fight with the umpire, with spectators, he would look disgusted all the time...

He was disgusted with his own level of play, just as his fans were. He just couldn't get it going. But he never gave up, kept fighting. That is all you can ask of him. He is a player not an actor.


I agree with MuzzahLovah (:eek: scary). Andy wasn't playing well but kept trying. I could see him throwing away this match, as he used to do, but to his credit he kept fighting. Djoko fans don't mind when their guy "wins ugly" while not having his best form on a particular day, so don't try to make it a negative for other players. Murray has different mannerisms than Djokovic, but they are consistent with who he is all the time (winning easily, losing, etc).

It seems to me that in his training Andy has been focusing on strength over speed. I feel (could very easily be wrong) that he has bulked up to such a degree, that his stamina is somewhat less, especially in conditions as there were today. All that muscle tissue requires quite a bit of energy.

philosophicalarf

My guess is a muscle problem or the like. After all, he trains on this very court for several months a year, including when it's much, much warmer.

First serves were insanely slow at the end - 90,89,91,88mph the last few.

I just said that the serving ability and percentage was awful, because it was. But the actual tennis was of high quality when you think about what kind of match they were having, the conditions and what kind of players they both are.

Of course there aren't going to be as many winners, both guys are defensive players. It's incredibly difficult to hit a winner against either of these guys, which explains unforced error count as both would try to go for more to get the ball past one another. There were so many gruelling rallies, it really was survival of the fittest. Serving isn't the entire play. It was about one guy outlasting the other, and that, to me was fascinating to watch. T

They played incredibly long points the ENTIRE match, that's draining, of course they couldn't go all out and hit winners in all corners all the time. Nobody could. The defensive capabilities of both guys are off the charts, and that's what impressed me.

I'm not talking about his playstyle, just his attitude. That was great, he was cramping as soon as 3rd set started, and Murray played atrocious tennis on every serve. It should have ended at 6-2 and Ferrer got a f#ing MP!

Djoko King hasn't won a Masters this year, Murray has. Stay pressed. Murray always plays shit in this part of the season, yet he still won a Masters :haha:. Can't wait for Murray to make you cry at Wimbledon.

This. Yes Murray isn't playing his best but he never does in IW/Miami, courts are just too slow for him. However, despite all this he still found a way to win, just think of what he'll do when the conditions suit him more. If I was a hater I'd be VERY worried right now.

As for the match, yes it was ugly, but the blame for that mainly goes to the court speed, humidity and the organisers for putting this match in the part of the day with most difficult conditions.

Well done to Andy on yet another masters title, reach no.2 where he belongs and also for yet again silencing the haters. :yeah:

On the other hand, Murray has been godawful every single match at Miami, except for sections vs Gasquet (and even there double-faulted away two breaks).

What's better: A player that fights his own poor form and somehow ends up with the title, or one that gives up in frustration when playing badly? He could have easily done that vs Cilic, Gasquet, Ferrer or even Dimitrov.

I could not believe all the breaks even though I knew it was certainly possible considering the player's respective strengths and weaknesses but I thought matters would have to be pretty bad for so many breaks and errors. And they were.

So much grinding from both men. But with these courts, and these grindsters, it is to be expected. I get that the ATP think that long exciting rallies are what fans want and what might attract new fans but this match proves how terribly wrong it can go.

I expected better from murray and worse from ferrer. hopefully the rankings will change and they will never be in the same draw again. that said for a masters it was watchable, as you never knew till championship point ended who was going to win. not pretty tho, especially considering both players rankings.

Glad that i didn't watched the match ... my grandma told me that it was the first time she watched tennis since the '80s and her exact words were... "God why is this slow-asass blue clay being used as tennis court ... while these two can't even attack properly" she then added after 15 seconds of silence "This is the biggest mugfest i've ever witnessed in the history of any sport ... Glad that the bigger mug lost"

What a fun and unusual match.
2012 Ferrer showed up for the first set, and then glimpses appeared in sets 2 and 3.

It is incredibly sad that he blew his championship point with a blown challenge. :sad::sad::sad:

Ignore Hipolymonger. He is a bitter djokotard of the highest order. He needs to take lessons from classy Djoko King fans like the lovely Nole Fan, and all the great posters in Novak's chat thread.

Talking of Djoko King fans, where has Saberq go to? Has he been on here since the loss to Haas? Such a fake fan.
Yeah, there's him, Saberq, and Elijster(?), the unholy trinity. Always talking shit about everyone but Djokovic, and the hilarious thing is, Saberq even slags him off as well :lol:

I must look at Novak's chat thread, I like the guy, and it's frustrating that his most vocal supporters are constantly polluting this forum with bollocks.

Which is why these surfaces are just too slow. When there's heat and humidity of that magnitude, an at least medium-paced court would have been ideal.

What magnitude? It was a below average day in Miami. Some people have no idea what they are talking about.
New York and Melbourne can make Miami look like the Siberian Open.

Your boy is, but legs failed him. But you know this yet.

Sounds like it was a good choice to sleep through this match.

Congrats to Murray, I'm pretty happy about the #2 spot. :D

As a Murray fan, I am happy that he won in the end, but my God it was an excruciating match to watch.

Reminded me of battles between Monica Seles and Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario.

Horrendous serving, slow courts, hot, humid, windy conditions, huge choking, really farcical at times, and fizzled out in the tie-break.

Murray looked ok when he hit the ball hard and went for the lines, but he didn't seem to want to do that very much.

Your grandmother sounds like a very shrewd analyst of the game :yeah:

Ferrer showed today why he's not an elite player, a pretender and not a contender. Murray played the worst he could possibly play in a big final, awful serving, horrendous W-UE ratio, hindered movement for the entire third set... and Ferrer still found a way to lose.

Anyone in the real top 7 would have made Murray pay for the way he played today with a quick 2-set defeat. Ferrer is just not good enough, overrated game and especially mentality. There are three certainties in life: death, taxes and Ferrer folding like a cheap tent in the wind when the going gets tough in a big match.

Aging Ferrer reminding us that he's a serious threat at every masters event. Great player/fighter. Great career. :hatoff:

Murray hit 2 aces in the first set and didn't hit another after that. Fucking insane! :eek:

I find that so insulting. Specially considering he's the top 5 player in the world. If it was all about hard work, what the hell are we waiting for? fans are the worst judges. :facepalm:

Yeah ferrer does have remarkable talent of changing direction of the ball with out over hitting several It's definitely not something everyone can do
