What the hell is it with people on this forum just toally rubbishing Andrew Murray? 'federer express' you need to STFU because I would think you would be tired by now of being wrong, it is clear your are on this forum only to glorify Federer.

The braindead assumptions that pass an analysis here are laughable. Murray is 18, yet his critics talk about him as if his game is not going to improve from this point. I can't help but wonder if a lot of this is bitterness stemming from the fact that Murray's performance for this year will put him on par with better thought of players like Gasquet and Monfils a the same age.

Those saying Murray has no power in his game must have missed the near 100mph forehands he was blasting past Stephanek at Wimbledon, or the blistering backhand passing shots. Then there is the serve, which looks like it is going to develop into a huge weapon.

MTF is not exactly a bastion of high quality tennis analysis, and boy does it show. There is a very good reason people like Mcenroe, Wilander and Connors are talking up Murray, there is a good reason that he is getting a lot of coverage in professional tennis publications, it's because people who understand the game can see Murray has the goods to get to the top. You don't see the same enthusiasm for Monfils or even Gasquet. The buzz around Murray is reminicent of the buzz around Federer before he was famous, and when armchair tennis fans the world ovr were saying 'bah...that Federer kid will never get into the top 10'. When will you clueless wonders learn.

'federer express', watch Murray get into the top 10 next year and see how idiotic your criticisms truly were. Maybe you should try ignoring your prejudices and watch one of Murray's better matches. See just how early he moves to make a shot, how he seems to have all the time in the world. Watch the ROS and see just how early he can take the ball, appreciate the Mcenroesque like brilliance that sees him consistently pull of jaw dropping shots.

In a sense I suppose all this criticism Murray gets shows just how well he is doing, he's making his critics look stupid and this leads them to make ever more ridiculous criticisms

McEnroe-esque like brilliance????? :rolleyes: :smash:

(just what we need...another british person obsessed with ordinary british players!)


Pointless arguing with a fool, you predictions are lauaghable, as is your record here. The substance-such as it is-of your argument against Murrat getting to the top is based on fascile assumptions. The fact that *you* cannot see why Murray is going to be big does not preclude it happening.

Sure, you are backing Roddick for this match, but only because Federer is not playing to a standard you deem acceptable. Once Federer finds his form again it will be business as usually and you will be back to brownosing.

Ooohh...that's a very red row of blocks under your username, evanzo.


I can understand your frustration of the "bashing" but more experienced MTF members will tell you that it's a tradition here. It gets annoying when you see one-sided bashing, that's true. Murray has his share of defenders on this board, though.
Usually, a player needs to have had more results before the bashing begins so you could almost see it as a compliment. ;)

You don't see the same enthusiasm for Monfils or Gasquet? Maybe not where you live but I have certainly seen enough enthusiams for these guys and certainly for Gasquet.

Scary that this *new* poster knows everything about Federer Express. Leads me to conclude:

1) a longtime lurker who's had enough
2) Leena
3) Sjengster (j/k)

don't see the same enthusiasm for gasquet????

i cannot credit your stupidity! have you ever seen either play? are you blind? had a frontal lobotomy?

only a british person would try to compare murray to mac and federer and say he is more promising than gasquet!!!

you are just too dumb for me to even talk to.

nah I just read MTF a lot but never really felt like posting but recently the anti-Murray stuff has become too much. He's only just barely started his career and people are ripping him to shreds without and real justification.
