Okay, I'm a little depressed at the moment with this latest loss. I expected Wawrinka was going to be tough and had a good chance of winning but to inflict a beat-down like that on the world #2 for the loss of just THREE games! :shock: I can't figure out just why Murray has such difficulties with clay. This latest awful beat-down doesn't make me optimistic for any rapid improvement. If anything, he seems to have regressed from his highs of 2009 and 2011 when he made the semis of MC twice, taking Nadal to tie-break the first time and taking a set off him the second time, then served for the match against Djokovic in the semis of Rome and then made the semis of RG! Now he can't even win more than 3 games against the world #13 in the 3rd round of a tournament where he was twice before only stopped by the world's best clay court player! He is not suffering any obvious injuries (although his overall play has been very erratic since the AO) and has just come off a win in Miami. His opening round match went smoothly enough. So what went so badly wrong this time especially when he was defending his world #2 ranking? Is Murray ever going to get the hang of clay or is this going to be the one surface he is never going to master? Or am I just being too pessimistic? Thoughts (sensible ones please)?
