yep, at first when watching the video i thought that the umpire was pointing at a mark that cliped the line, so i was like, ok you can yell, but then when he said the ball was out and murray was still yelling, i just broke out laughing..

He was upset for what? 5 seconds? People get tense during a match, they can lose it for a moment. Big deal. At least he recovered quickly and he didn't get fined for disrespecting the ump like other players I know :-?

I think a monkey would be able to tell if a ball was in or out. I could understand if the umpire was looking at a mark that was on the line, but those two marks were clearly in, so why was the screaming necessary.

@"he didn't get fined for disrespecting the ump like other players I know :-?":

I'm sorry were you at the USO Final in NY..I was. Federer had all the right to yell at that umpire. He was horrendous. The match felt like a Davis Cup match, Del Potro fans were going crazy, chanting "ole ole" and "del po", especially after Federer lost the second set. I guesse the umpire didn't have necessary motor skills to turn on his microphone and tell the crowd to "please be quiet as a courtesy to the players". Couple that with the fact that the umpire was allowing Del Potro 15+seconds to decide to challenge a ball, and telling Federer to be quiet, its no doubt that Federer was ****ed (wouldn't you be too?). Was it not you who said that "People get tense during a match, they can lose it for a moment."..what makes Federer the exception? Because he is "super human"? No he isnt. At least he didn't go nuts because of his stupidity, like murray, who was given the out call he was looking for. He had a valid reason. Maybe using profanity was not the correct way to solve it, but it was the spur of the moment.

I agree, it was more comical than offensive but I was impressed that they didn't have any qualms about fining him. I thought they would never dare!

Here is the clip, my friend. The ball is called out at 0:16 and Del Potro challenges at 0:26. That's 10 seconds, which is not too long. Even if it was too long, the only reason DP took so long is because he asked the umpire whether or not he should challenge and then didn't hear what the umpire said to him the first time. And then Federer went even more nuts than Murray.

Murray looks really pathetic whatever he does.

I mean, when you look at Fed, Djok and Rafa, they sometimes behave classless (Novak even more than Murray, but he toned it down recently). But even when they do, it looks somehow powerful and imposing, with a degree of character (Fed charging at the ump, Djok dissing Roddick and the crowd)

Murray is just annoying and pathetic. I don't know what to make of him...hmm. Funny chap.

I am not approving Murray's reaction , it is a bit childish, or at least very nervous.
There was no need of yelling to the umpire in any case.

But I do have a understanding about his reaction. I have been in numerous situation myself like this. How many times has happened that such a point with bad call turned the match to go up-side down.

It was clarely out, and maybe Murray was afraid that he could have lost the point.

notice how at 0:17-0:19 that as soon as Del Potro hit the ball he was looking up at his box, THEN he asked the umpire, and THEN he challenged.

i'd lke to put you in Federer's situation, having a chance to go up two breaks in the 2nd, screwing the second set, and then having the umpire against you and tell you to be quiet.

Federer is more badly behaved than Murray here but it seems to go unoticed.
Federer is more likeable IMO when he has a rant because it makes him more interesting, unpredictable and human just like Murray.
Murray vs Davy is just funny and MacEnroe esque.
Murray vs ball boy is bad behaviour that is if he was aware of the ball boy because Murray was voted as 'nicest player to Ball boys/girls' at Wimbledon so that seems out of character but let he who is without sin, cast the first stone.
I'm sure we could all dig up some dirt on other players if we were sad and vindictive enough to find the time to do so.

I've seen a billion examples of players first asking the umpire whether they should challenge and then challenging. And I am sure Roger did, too. That's the only thing Del Potro did and there was absolutely nothing wrong with it. Maybe he did a second or two too slow but nothing worthy of swearing 3 times at the ump.

The umpire did not tell Fed to be quiet. Listen to the clip again. This thing about the umpire telling Fed to be quiet seems to be a part of Fedfanboy mythology and has absolutely no empirical basis.

You'd like to put me in Fed's position? I'm sure there were many other players who were in Federer's position and who still didn't swear at the umpire. Do you really think that Federer is the only player ever who was treated unfairly by the umpire ? Considering Federer's popularity it can only be the opposite: Federer is probably treated better by the umpires than the other players.

He was just angry that del potro was taking to long to challenge, which he was btw, and was upset that the umpire showed him the hand, assuming he meant for fed to stop talking. Fed is entitled to complain and he was right in the matter, although he probably handled it wrong. It amazes me how you always twist things to make fed look bad.

If you look at the video again you will see that Murray looks at the ball boy who doesn't respond then when Murray looks away the ball boy then comes with the towel and, possibly, Murray doesn't notice him or he ignores him because he's annoyed which would still be bad behaviour.
I have never met Murray in person so I cannot comment properly on his personality.
He just looks like any ordinary immature youth to me and he is still not far out of his teens and how many of us weren't brats and did impulsive silly things at that age.
And maybe we forget that a lot of these players eg Del Potro, Djokovic, Nadal are still very young and have a lot of growing up to do just like any normal person.
A lot of the people having a go at Murray are probably just spotty teenagers even younger and more obnoxious and immature than the likes of Murray.

That's what I think about him, too. "any ordinary immature youth" . I don't think he's arrogant. He's probably the least arrogant of the top 4.

But I do find him annoying and unbearable to watch sometimes. One of the reasons why many people don't like him is because they understand what he's saying. When Rafa, DJokovic and Delpo yell all sorts of things in their langauges, we don't really know what they're saying and it may even seem cute to us. :)

listen to the clip yourself, Federer complained that "two matches ago" he wasnt allowed to challenge after "like 2 seconds"...as soon as i find the time ill edit this post to let you know.

Federer saw Del Potro looking at the box, as i said in my previous post which obviously you decided to leave out. Thats what ****ed him off even more.
why should Del Potro be allowed to challenge after looking at his box, and having 11 seconds pass? Looking at your box for clues on whether you should challenge is pretty much coaching..and i dont think thats allowed.

Del Potro asked the umpire how he saw it, which is perfectly fine. The umpire answered him. Del Potro didn't hear the answer so he asked the umpire to repeat what he said. The umpire repeated, and then Del Potro challenged.

To be honest, they shouldn't even let them do that. I mean it really should be up to the player to challenge. Why look at the ump for support? This way there wouldn't be any discrepancy when asking for a challenge. And if the person takes longer than a certain amount of time then it's a no go. That could solve some of these problems.

Are you SURE you watched the video?

She is a biased and unfair poster. Murray's reaction was 100x worse and unnecessary compared to Federer's at the Us Open.

It's the same as clay. The player SHOULD be allowed to make a quick request for confirmation to the chair umpire. If the chair had said, yeah, clearly out, then JMDP may not have challenged it.

wasn't he the same umpire who said to Fed to shut up? Is that allowed for an ump to do too?

I would like an ump to say this to Murray's face when he pulls up a sissy fit.

I would be inclined to agree with you if the challenge system wasn't set up the way it is currently. With clay the ump has to come down and check the mark and you can do that as many times as you'd like to. With this challenge system you have 3 wrong challenges. I'm beginning to think that's why they set up the challenge system the way they did to throw in some more drama for entertainment. But there really is no drama if you are going to confer with the ump on every close call. If Del Potro was positive that the ball was out then challenge and don't ask for a confirmation. There need to be clearer rules with this challenge system because clearly it is not consistent across the board. I've seen players hit a ball, get ready for the next shot, play a shot they thought was out, continue playing and then challenge. And have it allowed. Then I've seen umps stop something like that from happening in it's tracks. There is really no consistency at all. Some players don't even ask for advice from the ump, like Federer, and I've seen some people do it constantly.

Told Federer to shut up? I heard he just raised his hand.

He didn't tell Fed to shut up. Nor did he tell Fed to be quiet.

The more I watch these Murray rants, the more I enjoy them! He's pretty hilarious...

Now if ONLY he could win a Slam! Then his tantrums could be hailed as part of his genius.

Nowhere can you hear Jake telling him to be quiet. All you can hear is "Del Potro leads 5 games to 4"

Yep, what we have there is a genuine sissy fit.
