And on the flip side, isn't the person who was clutch on a critical point usually relieved to have came up with the goods? I'm sure Murray wouldn't like it if his opponent taunted him after he was aced. "Yeah, you wanted that break point, didn't you? Well it's gone now and there is nothing you can do about it."
Just because it goes through your brain doesn't mean it has to come out of your mouth.
And yes, I play. I also am quick to say "good shot" to an opponent who aces me on a break point or hits a winner or whatever. I'm nothing like Murray on the court. I'm capable of appreciating good tennis, even if it comes from the other side of the net.
Sometimes though he may be berating himself for playing the rally in the wrong way, allowing
his opponent to come up with the big winner. When you consider Murray's penchant for junk-balling, it makes sense.
