He seems to be only the 4th player in 25 years to go out of the YEC with a 2-1 record.

Really? Thats tough, in front of his homecrowd and all, by a 1 game margin to top it off.
Although imo he should have put up more of a show in front of a crowd that obviously adores him, hes body-language is very negative and he is shouting at himself-when opponents make good shots-seems very unnecessry to me and it is clearly stealing energy from him.

What good does Alex Corretja do for him? :???:

Murray can play fun exciting agressive tennis- I dont get why he doesnt.

He's stubborn and thinks he knows best. He'll argue it's got him to 2 in the world - but I agree with you - also agree with your other comments.

I see, Yes it took him a long way but Im sure he doesnt wanna stop here?
I LOVE his game when he plays agressively - and I cant watch it when he pushes and hopes for his opponent to make a mistake.

He made me a fan after USO 08 but has been disappointing ever since, especially the indian wells match where he lost to Nadal in the final, worst pusher performance of the season.

Poor Murray, I wanted him to qualify more than DP, I really wanted to see Murray vs. Djokovic. I guess I'll have to wait for next time.

I know but he really should finished off Chokedasco in 2 straights, the blame has got to fall on him and nobody else.

It seems he agrees with you:

“It goes down to the percentage of games,” said Murray, who won all three round robin matches last year but lost to Nikolay Davydenko in the semifinals. “The people that go through are the ones that deserve to.”

Gottfried '76
Becker '91
Ferreira '95
Rafter '97
Murray '09

He's not unlucky, he fully deserves this. He knew full well going into the Verdasco match that if he won in straights he was through, yet he played his usual defensive pusher game and didn't try to play aggressive.

Playing aggressive or defensive isn't about winning quicker or slower. Both are ways to win.

Playing BETTER can be done by either playing better aggressively, playing better defensively, or both.
