    No. He made the AO final playing in their gear.

    Sometimes you create your own luck which Murray didn't.

    That is the reason. He's obviously been affected and now just wants a slam soo bad since he's the only one in the top 5 who doesn't have one. So i say he will win less smaller events and concentrate on winning a big one.

    I suppose that Fred Perry is a brand from England, so Murray might be losing some country pride but he is scottish anyway.

    In another aspect, I am assuming that Adidas is paying him more and now he doesn't have to buy his own shoes like when he was with Fred Perry. So off the court, he must be doing better.

    Thank you. That is the correct answer.

    Players are not falling into the trap of getting in protracted rallies with him. And attacking his weak 2nd serve. Which puts pressure on his 1st serve - he goes for less to get it in - thus doesn't get the cheap free points. He needs to bring in someone to help with the 2nd serve. His current team obviously doesn't have the answer. Or he's not buying it from them. Maybe Tiger Tim? :)

    So it was his clothes that made his forehands land short against Fish? Ridiculous, absolutely absurd. I love this board, it amuses me no end...it's so bad it's good.

    The reason for the forehands to land short was the fact that he has changed the color of his shoes. :)

    Anybody that believes in luck or bad luck should be hit over the head.

    People have caught on to his pushing ways and have started ripping winners left and right.

    Adidas clothes rule. Nike blows big chunks.

    Adidas is a curse for Murray.
    Flames are a curse for Djokovic.

    Except Murray isnt a pusher!! No professional tennis player is a "pusher" that's just a ridiculous statement, Im sorry it just is. Have you ever seen in person just how hard these guys hit the ball? No way he's a pusher.

    Pushers are found at the 3.5 level and 4.0 level. Maybe at 4.5 Maybe. They'd have to be like a brick wall to be an effective pusher at that level. Beyond that, pushers dont exist.

    I think its the other way around, Andy Murray is bringing Adidas bad luck.

    Luck is what happens when Preparation meets Opportunity.

    I would say that the other players are better prepared for what Murray does right now so they are able to make their own "luck" against him.

    In competitive, interactive sports you need to evolve and add to your arsenal instead of just playing the same game and expecting others to adapt to you. Not changing may work for a few years, but eventually you just get left behind.

    Murray has too much talent to waste by not changing and I hope he gets things going.
