What was with all the hype surrounding the Scotsman?

He almost botched a 2-0 lead against a player with arguably the worst backhand in tennis history and had to make a comeback from 0-2 down against a player ranked 159 in singles (a good player in doubles though).

His on-court demeanor in all three matches (just like his entire career to be fair) was filled with whining towards his box and self-criticism every time a point doesn’t go his way and the occasional forced celebration when things do go his way.

As much as you can find RBA's celebration at the end dislikable...isn't Murray the one that does the one that constantly rallies the crowd (and the constant fist pumps, which I did say seem to be helping him to be mentally sharp) and frankly has the constant look like he wants to go in a brawl? :rolls:

The entire match, the crowd was against rba and building intense atmosphere for Murray but when rba finally celebrates his hard earned win, people here cry about it being unclassy? the only thing unclassy was crowds behavior anytime rba lost a point and Murrays exaggerated limp walking all over the court. I will never get the bias for this guy cause he never actually delivers in performance. The better player won, fuck biased supporters.
furthermore on RBAs serve when ready Murray is facing the crowdntalking to them getting him to egg him on. I get that RBA over reacted but it was not the worse thing that happened on that court

As I said, my feelings towards RBA are not solely from this match. He has these ridiculous celebrations all the time and just overall doesn't seem like a well liked person on tour.
Also said he deserved the win today as he was the fresher and better player on court today, but was still a classless clown after winning. Both things can be true.
So take several seats my friend, your own bias is showing lol

Agut is just wildly unlikable. He deserves the win 100% but the celebrations and handshake just rub me the wrong way and it isn't in just this match that I've felt this. He just seems like a gross person at times and not particularly well liked on tour.
Great tournament from Andy, unreal atmosphere the whole time. Hope he can build off this level and stay fit for the whole season.
Paul you know what you have to do next round, send the psycho screamer home.
Andy should've said "No one likes you on the tour" again. :p

My only bias is watching the match and seeing how the crowd acted against rba the entire match and him finally letting go off that steam when he won. At one point Murray literally egged the crowd on when the ball was still in play and caused rba to lose the point. Imagine the uproar here if rba did something like that. so yeah I am going to go with what I saw instead of an overhyped retired player and his fans being sore losers tyvvm. Rba earned that celebration after keeping his cool against a heavily biased crowd. Sorry not sorry .

You're a Novak fan who's jealous of the fan support Andy gets. It's ok to be bitter, I would be too if faker was my fave. Anywho, have a lovely rest of your day. Agree to disagree.

If I play against someone who my crowd was all rooting for, and I have to fight not only him but the whole crowd, and finally win in the end after a long match, I would probably celebrate just like RBA. There’s nothing wrong with his celebration, just say y’all don’t like him. And lol at that salty handshake from Mugray. Did he seriously not accept and allow his opponents to celebrate just because they just beat someone with a mental hip? What a sore loser.
