Andy could possibly win a clay 250, but he doesn't enter them so I voted No. I wish he could play better on clay, but I can't see this happening at this point in his career.

Why not

Default Explanation for Murray ineptitude on clay???

Time and time again we see the British #1 get pounded on clay. Its his least successful slam surface and he never looks comfortable out there. Is there a reason for his results on clay? When we look at him without the results he should be the clay goat:


- Great defending/ Pushing tendencies: obviously clay is a very slow surface and defenders should thrive here unfortunately for Murray he hasn't made a clay final much less thrived on the surface.

- Growing up on clay: Unlike some of the American men who haven't seen clay court until there mid 20's. Murray grew up playing on the surface at a fairly young age.

- He has declared it is his favorite surface: Should be half decent on your favorite surface, right?


All things considering, why doesn't he have success on this surface like he's had on the hard or grass courts?








* This is not a Murray bashing thread, I respect Murray as a top 20 tennis player.

It's his movement. Apparantely Murray has knee issues which makes it difficult for him on clay.

Joint pain is the key to success on clay.

Whatever Murray's issue is apparently doesn't hold up well on Clay.

bipartite patella

You need firepower to succeed on clay, something Mandy certainly does not have.

He's British. That's a big handicap to overcome.

He grew up playing in Barcelona, so i have no idea why he is so bad at it. He is not even a top 20 on clay, it is just bad.
