    He blew match points again. is that 3 tournaments in a row? That's pro taking there!

    To be honest this janowicz guy played a great match, serving and returning in beast mode. can he succeed where rosol never will and manage to follow up on this? I hope he can become a top player..

    Murray probably not giving it his best but then again he's had a lot of unexpected losses those year, he's a better slam player now than in best of 3.

    i'm wondering what's the record of straight tournaments lost after having match point... has any player ever done better than 3 ?

    its crazy isn't it? Its now the lesser events that might be the only thing holding him back from being number one :lol: also he seems to handle fed and Djokovic better than the random player on a good run.

    If this is the closest the atp paris masters tournament has been to the world tour finals in terms of time, I can start to understand.

    Murray fans should be glad he had not tanked US open that would have been the greatest tank. I think he is doing ok in major events like slams and all.

    Janowitz is a beast, played like that previous match. I'd be surprised if he's a one-shot wonder

    is Murray a Sherman tank?

    I wonder how many people in 2012 know what a Sherman tank is?

    Now that Delpo tanked too, will Paris actually feature a winner? Seems every player is attempting to tank, in in fact we might not even see seimi finals as everyone will retire and leave Paris as a winner-less masters.

    Shermans are Ronsols, they just go up in flames

    There is a pristine one in St Mere Eglise.

    Couldn't find anyone in NY who knew who John Steel was, maybe I should have gone to Texas.
