Default Murray rarely gets to play Nadal but any problem cannot be found!

It's been almost a year since they last met.
Federer already faced him three times this year. Djokovic four.
It seems that the remaining member of big 4 successfully avoids meeting with Nadal, but why is that so?
Any ideas?

Skipping almost the whole clay season might have something to do with that. Btw, Nole-Roger still haven't met this year, for the first time since Nole turned pro almost

Well we all know how good Murray is on clay so he couldn't meet Fatbutt in his piggy pen. Also poor performances in Cincinnati and Montreal ensured it won't happen.

I'm happy they didn't meet, so we didn't have to see another unnecessary bendover to Dull, as if there was a shortage of those.

Rafa poor performance at Wimbledon and Murray below par everywhere else they both played/Skipping RG, it's not hard to figure out.

It's not Murray's fault Rafa fell early at Wimbledon and it's not Rafa's fault Murray was poor in the US Open series. I'm sure there are a lot of people keen to see how Murray would match up against Rafa off clay nowadays though.

Murray keeps losing/tanking? The times he doesn't, ie. Miami/Grass, are the places Nadal loses/tanks.

I don't want such a pathetic match to occur. Nadal will play around the world with Murray. He's already whooped him on all 4 slams. Why whoop him again? It will be another typical 4 set win for Nadal majority of the time.

Murray is going for the impressive feat of being the only top 10 not to be defeated by Nadal in 2013...

Good chance they will end up playing at the WTFs though.

If they do, Murray would probably win that.

fingers crossed they meet at tokyo/shanghai/indoors, could be a cracker

Nadal v Murray on hard is not one sided, h2h is 6-5 and 2-2(?) in GS

Default Re: Murray rarely gets to play Nadal but any problem cannot be found!

Murray has conspicously lost whenever he got close to playing Nadal,
but still he did not bend over to him, unlike Fed,
who tried to convince the world that he was the deserving Slam record holder,
even if those slams came from sycophants and losers. Still, Murray is showing weakness.
Must be because of his first name.

Mama Judy getting so close to Tio Tony.

Rafa tanked the tournaments Andy won, Andy skipped or tanked the ones Rafa won.
