    Gotta love having microphones and extra cameras on court at the US Open. All the clips of Andy Murray moaning in his Nadal semifinal match I put together in one clip.

    So hilarious, watch it to the end - it gets funnier.

    But on a serious note, is this why Murray can't win a slam - Mental concentration and behaviour? So much energy wasted shouting at his box that the opponent feeds off it (Nadal) and makes them play better?

    Yep, you are 100% correct. He has the full physical talent to defeat Federer, Nadal, and Novak any time he wants. But when he get's to those finals or is having a bad day, it is all out the window.

    ...that cliche of playing not to lose instead of playing to win.

    On the one hand I like it about him as it makes him so normal, DjokFedNadal look like cyborgs in comparison. But it does feel like an outlet for his distraction, which is not good. It's his personality though and I'll be impressed if he reigns it in enough for the final hurdle one day.

    Murray has a strange style though, I don't know if that applies to him at this point in his career. Remember what Federer said about him waiting for the other player to lose BS LOL

    On the contrary, I think he waits for himself to get better and the opponent to get worse.

    He won many a match simply because his opponent cracked right when they were about to win.
