so he is emphasizing that his wimbledon champion is very *precious* because for hell's sake he "might in theory not win another in the future for whatever reason", how's that "admit", there is no questioning from anybody in the first place, dude, how stupid is this thread.

Maybe he is just using Dull's tactics. Never the favourite, no? My knees will never work again?

Hope not, Murray doesn't need to use mind games. He is probably genuinely unsure how things will go.

'But I also know how hard it is to win those tournaments. It may never happen again, I might not win another one but I just want to give myself the best chance to do that and that's why we do the work over here and train and prepare as best as we can.

'Hopefully I'll give myself an opportunity to win another one.'
No, clutch ... I didn't filter anything ... you can see the original link in my first post. Yes, Murray did say he'd try his best but that sentence 'I might not be able to win another GS' is puzzling to me. It feels like there is more to it ... Again, I just hope Andy will be fine.

Reading the article in context actually paints a different picture from just reading the headline. I'd advice everyone to do that first before making up their mind. I see his comments as being more pragmatic and trying to keep expectations in check rather than a "loser mentality" or he's given up

Default Re: Murray admits he may not be able to win another Grand Slam

I'm not sure what is so hard to understand here. I didn't write the article. I'm just a messenger and as far as I know this is a tennis board.

Murray admits he may not be able to win another Grand Slam, but is fighting to give himself best shot

Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/ten...#ixzz2oPm7b97M

Gee, some of you are so silly? Read the fucking thing ?

It's very simple. IMO, it is strange that Murray would say something like 'I might not win another slam'...

It's not puzzling.

It's a mindset.

If you put pressure on yourself to win a grandslam then it becomes harder as you are dealing with more levels of stress and tension. By going into grandslams and the new season with a mindset of "whatever will be will be, for whatever I know I may never even win one again", what you're doing is playing tricks on your own mind so as to escape the possibility of being caught up in the extasy of emotional trauma and anguish.

Alex, Murray said the same thing heading into wimbledon this year.

I will roughly quote and you can google it because I can't be arsed.

"I may never win wimbledon, I cannot say it's certainly going to happe, that I am certainly going to win wimbledon, you never know".

It's called a state of mind.

Exactly. The IQ levels of this flipping board, sometimes, are so low. I feel embarrased to be a member.

Default Re: Murray admits he may not be able to win another Grand Slam

I like the objective journalistic distance used in the following line: 'Such is his dedication to his profession, however, Murray missed the ceremony in Leeds earlier this month as a result of his pre-season training commitments in Florida as he recovers from back surgery.'

Anyway, yeah, he's hedging his bets and lowering expectations Nadal-style. I have no problem with a player handling the media in this way.

Yeah having those two pushers Nadull and Pushovic winning slams over the variety and flair of Murray is what tennis needs


Anyway this is a non-story. The great Slamray is not going to come out and say he is 100% certain that he will win more slams, it is not in keeping with with genuine humble persona. I believe he actually said something similar to this during Wimbledon this year and we all know how that turned out!

Do not worry people, the worlds best player will be back to his very best and dominating the slams in no time.
