Re: The Official Tennis Thread

Absolutely fantastic match so far the level of tennis from halfway through that first set after a scrappy start has been extraordinary.

The returning of both men is amazing, the physicality to be admired and we are only two sets through here!!

Whatever happens And I am gunna stick with my prediction of Novak in four Murray is most Definetley back in the top level equation. To be level at one set all given how well Novak has played is testament to that.

Re: The Official Tennis Thread

Murry needs to control himself more. As a professional he's acting like a clown.

As a professional he is acting like Andy Murray does. Anyone who watches him with any regularity will know he has always been a vocal person especially when he loses points to sloppy play or unforced errors. He is more vocal now in a positive sense trying to motivate himself.

Onto the game itself' date=' far to many unforced errors and lack lustre play from half way through the third set has contributed to Murrays downfall. that self belief and never give up attitude Muresmo had seemingly installed into him has faded as the match has gone on and the unforced errors have increased.[/font']

Re: The Official Tennis Thread

Murray has collapsed, Novak ain't "won it" Murray has lost it so many unforced errors so Dissapointing but the writing was on the wall at the end of the third set and you come off it even a little bit against a champion like Novak and that's curtains.....

Congrats to Novak, great tournament overall for Murray but he needs to get that calmness he had when in the Lendl days and cut out the errors on the forehand made it miles to easy for Novak this last set and a half.

Re: The Official Tennis Thread

So people are saying it is unsportsmanlike for Murray to be extremely vocal when he is irritated at how poorly he played a point/game. Why shouldn't he express his disdain if it helps motivate himself? Hardly unsportsmanlike as it is not being done whilst a point is played or an opponent is about to serve.

Grunting (Sharapova) is unsportsmanlike. Calling for Hawkeye 3 or 4 shots after the initial shot (Berdych in the semi-final) is unsportsmanlike get some bloody perspective.

Ha ha Frozy it seems you have lost weight. :P

Edit: Better heed my own advice and say something tennis related. Djokovic fully deserved his win and hard to believe he is being installed as favourite for the French over Nadal but you would have to be crazy to back against him or Nadal.

Re: The Official Tennis Thread

I don't know why people are having a go at Murray TBH, all he is doing is screaming at himself and it ain't in the direction of his opponent. The he only person he really hurts with his outbursts is himself as like today he completely lost focus and concentration totally damaging his own chances and from being super competitive in a great match he sunk like a trace.

There are bits about all players that you might not like. I don't like the fact that Novak in almost every tight match suddenly develops a "injury" plays up to it and then a minute later runs around like the proverbial Duracell bunny he is terrible for things like that.

Just differing players, differing traits.

Re: The Official Tennis Thread

Murray just couldnt keep up the fight and threw the match away once Novak raced ahead in the third set after being down 2-0. If Murray could sustain the level of the earlier sets we could've had a thriller. Novak really stepped up to the plate and showed guts when it mattered the most.

This is Novak's 8th slam but he should've had more by now. He has been really wasteful by winning only 1 slam a year despite being the best / most consistent player in the world for quite some time now. This year he must make sure to win at least two more.

Murray has always been there or thereabout but unfortunately for him more thereabout than there. But its tough for him with at least one of Roger/Rafa/Novak firing all cylinders most of the time.

Congrats to Novak & Serena and of course our India great Leander Paes for winning mixed doubles title with Martina Hingis. :):)
