Default Andy Murray: "I don't know how Novak recovered from the 2012 AO SF"

Q. Do you have any thoughts on the fairness of that? Do you believe semifinals should be played on the same day?

ANDY MURRAY: I mean, I do, yeah. You want the players all to have the same opportunity. But, I mean, I was told that the player that's played the second semifinal I think has won like five or six of the last seven years, so I don't know exactly who it favors more. Obviously if you have an extremely long match you would think the person that had the extra day's rest, it would favor them. But a couple years Novak recovered from -- I don't know how he did it, because I played against him in the semifinal and I could barely walk a couple days later. But he recovered from a five-hour match and then won the final in six hours. I don't really know who it favors, to be honest.

Federer, Nadal and Djokovic pander to plutocrats and charge huge appearance fees. The "trickle down effect" means that tournaments like the Heineken Open now have to pay appearance money for racketeers that many of us have never heard of. It's close to extortion.

At the end of Federer's first round match at the Australian Open a fawning interviewer asked about his kids and if he had bought coach Stefan Edberg a birthday present - no, by the way, the privilege of knocking up with 'King Roger' was enough of a present apparently.

Murray can run as much as anyone, or as Davydenko would say,

Quote:
"Sometimes he walks on court, he looks tired, like he doesn't want to run any more and then he runs like an animal. He has done that all his career. He's, like: 'Ah, I don't want to play any more.' Then he starts returning and running and you see his condition is very good.

Djokovic was not the first one to do that though. Nadal did it in 2009 as well. It is a combination of fitness, confidence and mental strength to push yourself to the limit. Nadal looked completely tuckered out in the third set of the final in 2009 and I think Federer would have won the match had he won that set. He somehow clung onto it and managed to outlast Federer. Similarly Dojokovic looked to be out of it early in the 5th set but managed to push himself through and cross the line. Both Nadal and Djokovic were extremely confident at that time and that surely helped.

There is a big difference between AO and Wimb/USO though, in that regard.

At AO top players are well rested after an off season and usually get to SF by losing a set or two, so playing two consecutive 5-setters (at night) is not that hard .

But playing finals at Wimb after 5-setter in SF and recently tough F/SF in RG + clay masters before that, is a huge disadvantage if another finalist virtually skippped the clay season (Sampras) and played four quick sets in the semi.

The same is true for USO because of already accumulated fatigue during the season and the two masters beforehand.

All the closet Serb fans trying to bring Murray into it.

What we saw in that 2012 Australian Open was unbelievable. I have never seen a recovery like it in any sport.

Are you kidding? Miami is a wonderful place to train and build up and take care of one's body... Many athletes train and take advantage of the fantastic weather and attractions there.



One just has to avoid certain people, anti-aging clinics, and other temptations near South Beach...
