I hoping for the QF's, his stamina has been a big issue so I can't expect much in a BO5 Clay tourney.

I'm not saying he would beat Wawa on clay, but Andy was clearly injured for much of last years clay season, that's why he missed the French. Regardless, Wawrinka is highly volatile and could got out to a Haas type character. Ferrer is a bigger worry for me, he's very consistent on clay.

Mugtards are trying hard. Why not call more British/Scottish who know nothing about tennis to join MTF?

I think he tried to mix up playstyles against Rafa because he was looking to see what works and what doesn't, the problem is he doesn't play Rafa enough on clay. Djokovic will always have the edge because not only is he a great clay court player, he has played Rafa enough times to not be intimidated by him, something that Murray can't quite say just yet.

I just don't think Andy prioritises clay enough to actually care about it, apart from maybe RG, he doesn't go looking to vulture 250s or 500s during the clay season or even out of it. I think he just bothers because it has 1 slam and will give it his best, but win it? no i don't think so, unless the stars align to an almsot perfect degree.

QF at maximum, if he have his usual draws. With a hard draw, probably R3.

Maybe early in the match, I watched the third set and Murray had pretty much 0 variety, CC after CC after CC

He is not gonna beat Wawrinka and highly unlikely he'll beat Federer. Federer won't play like he did against Chardy lol.

I'm expecting a quarter final and a terrific fight against whoever he plays in that match

He has a chance against djokovic federer and wawrinka.

In fact wawrinka would probably be the most difficult opponent for Murray out of that three right now.

Would prefer federer as his qf opponent to be honest.

It's about time they had a clay match.

Nadal is such a physical and mental obstacle on this surface.

I remember their semi final at Roland garros in 2011.

I don't think anyone else has had more break points against nadal at the French open.

Murray had 18 break points but only took 3.

Nadal was unbelievably clutch in that match.

I believe he will at least make the quarters on current form, after that it's anyone's game but I think he can beat Djokovic on clay and maybe Rafa is he plays aggressively
Don't hype Mora again last time they did it and he lost 12 straight tournaments since Flukeldon. lol

On topic Dull is below average plus Murret is mental head case. There are at least 25 players can defeat Murray on clay.

If Murray defeats Djokovic on clay in Bo5 I'll be out from here for 2 years. This ain't happening..

QFs would be good

tbf to Murray at Miami he did better vs. Djokovic than Nadal offered in the Final. Davis Cup Fognini trolled him and Madrid he looked shit but again at Rome he was decent, certainly he angered Nadal into form post the first set so for Queens and Wimby I am increasingly confident

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned...

Clayray as an entity is totally unbeatable but whether he will appear is another matter entirely.

Murray on Clay in 2011 was actually impressive, took Nadal to 3 at Micky C despite an injured ankle, drove Djokovic seriously close in Rome SF in a epic match and reached the SF of RG (though it was a shit draw) and played decent vs. Dull despite a straight set loss.

It would be a brave man to rule Slamray out of any slam. A player with his talent and experience always has a chance.
