Re: This Australian Open ended up being a huge flop

I am not really buying the conclusions drawn from the stats, but I am glad you posted the article.

Points 1, 5 and maybe 6 I can agree with. Need to think about it more though.

Re: Federer had arthroscopic surgery on his knee (OUT of Dubai and Rotterdam).

Federer and Murray are defending a similar number of points before RG (~2000), so this could determine the race to be seeded second there, although I suppose Rafa might get there with a return to...

Re: Why Murray is so bad in Grand Slams Finals ?

It was only AO 2011 in which he really underperformed. In the last couple of AO finals, he isn't even as good a player as he was before the surgery, and actually did about as well as he could.

He is a bit too muscle-bound also, which affects...

Re: AO Final: Novak Djokovic def. Andy Murray 6-1, 7-5, 7-6(3). SIX-cess!

Yes, I don't even know whether either was out or not, but it was a tough situation. It was the far sideline, so difficult for Ramos to overrule, and not really easy for Murray to challenge either.

Some good signs from Andy. He played up to his current level, and kept in it mentally.

Djokovic was just too good, too solid.

Andy's forehand was poor, still below Lendl era levels. Second...

Re: Murray: "There's no reason it's not possible for me to win"

Andy has always had a slightly tortured mindset. He feels comfortable with it, and it fuels his determination and obstinacy. I don't think it would work for him to be extremely positive about...

Re: WWW AO Final: Novak Djokovic v. Andy Murray XXXI

I don't see how Murray can win this, so I would rather he just played really aggressively and just hope his shots land in. It would make a change at least, and he can catch an earlier flight to go...
