    I love how the announcers are saying they should just "go for it" like in ice hockey, "rackets down, shirts off" good ol' brawl. THAT i would pay to see.

    Slams are everything. Nobody remembers what Rios won, people just remember what he didn't win: a slam. At the moment it's the same for Murray.

    Still enjoyable, and has led to other videos being posted for people's enjoyment. It's actually a fun thread, that, besides you, isn't affected by the general idiocy of this board. If you think it's pointless, do us all a favor and turn off your computer instead of sharing your opinion that nobody cares about.

    Ah of course...you are of the school that only Slams count. Do you only watch tennis 4 times a year then? If not, why not?

    You didn't post this for fun. You posted it to troll Murray just like your 'Murray is finished' thread. At least try and be honest about it!

    Which is why Del Potro owns Murray to a winning percentage of 16.7%.

    It's a quarter final match from 2009 Monte Carlo. Murray won 7-6, 6-4. The incident was right near the end of the match.

    That's because Rios is the most talented player since Rod Laver.

    Murray leads Davydenko 5-4 in their head-to-head yet they haven't met since this match over 3 years ago.

    Winning percentage in slam finals.

    Del potro = 100%

    Murray = 0%. Hasn't won a set. Not one set. I repeat. Not a single set.

    remind me, how many slam finals has JMDP actually reached?

    as for the head to head, lol, no contest..

    http://www.atpworldtour.com/Players/Head-To-Head.aspx?pId=MC10&oId=D683

    Murray up 5 - 1 so far....

    Del Potro such a joke. A footnote in history alongside Orantes, Edmonson and co...

    If Murray doesn't win a slam, he won't even be a footnote. People aren't on a be like, "oh yeah he was incredible, he won 637 masters titles and had a winning record over a slam winner, he was quite the player!" slam or bust.

    Why did you assume he hadn't heard of Panatta? Panatta was an excellent player. He beat Borg twice in Paris.

    Del Potro is still very young and got injured right as he peaked, so he got a bit of a bum deal, however there is still great possibility that he'll win another slam.

    oh, I know, but I am bored, and trolling del potro fans is fish in a barrel stuff.

    Watched him practice at the AO this year, actually, just basically stood on the baseline hitting groundstrokes as hard as humanly possible for about a half hour and left..

    Wish they had the ability to show the hawk eye replay for clay just to get these arguments out of the way.

    This. Just use hawkeye on clay and avoid this regular nonsense with wrong marks.

    the collective fail is what makes that one so awesome imo.

    söderling gets the mark wrong by about 2 meters (lol) then the umpire comes down and points to another mark (that is also wrong) and 5 seconds later he cant find it anymore.. lmfao

    Wait, are you guys saying that Del Potro has 1 grand slam title while Murray has 0 grand slam titles?

    Because that's news to me.

    The umpire needs to learn a thing or two in communicating with players. He made it looks like it was 'in' by his initial reaction. Andy thought the umpire called it 'in'. That reaction was just natural from Andy.

    If I was incharge, I would fire that umpire right away.

    In addition to that, the mark that the umpire indicated was incorrect. So although Murray won the point, he won it, on a wrong call. It was a different mark.

    It is about getting things right. Umpires cannot always get away doing wrong things. Andy didn't like that. He reacted like any normal person, who feels he was cheated, would.

    And it was ridiculous for Davydenko to laugh at it.
