Get well soon mate
Praying for your fast recovery Muzza. !!!
What was the operation, exactly?
He got a backbone implanted, finally.
Good to see him with a smile. That suggests it probably went well. What a relief.
From his Twitter:
"First thing I said when I came round was "did I win?" #somethingsneverchange
Not sure exactly - but it seems to be related to a disc in his lower back.
hope he'll come back soon..Tennis need this guy..
hope he will come back as soon as possible..Tennis needs this guy
Hopefully he'll be ready for the AO.
Glad to see he's (seemingly) in good spirits. Take care of yourself Andy. Looks a little like one Marat Safin there. :lol:
As long as he doesnt beat Nadal in a major until he has reached 18 and pushed all Federer fans to give up watching tennis for good. He can beat Djokovic and Olderer in slams as much as he wants. Once Nadal has reached 18 and saved Tennis around the World, he can start beating him in slams again too, but not before then.
newbie member of the year, well done my friend, well done.
yes i agree with you..Nadal is a terrible matchup for the Scottish..Therefore Murray could defeat Djokovic..I'd prefer not to facing Djokovic every time in a major to get the trophy..
Murray had a decent head to head with the serbian..His game,expecially on HC seems to adapt perfectly and he has two weapon to match Joker:
FIRST SERVE and RETURNING
important thing is that inside out forehand of Djokovic is neutralized by slice cross court backhand..serbian struggle with a ball without pace to push..
other important arm is backhand slice DTL
if murray avoid the diagonal of the forehand has a chance to beat djokovic
I hope he gets "back" to his best!
Fingers crossed that the operation was completely successful!
Get well soon Andy!
Accidently read the thread title as "murray back on dope."
Nevertheless, I wish him a speedy recovery and am glad he got it taken care of.
Shannon Brown block and the Laker bench reaction!
Seriously one of my favorite gifs of all time..props man
Isn't he a little young to be having these kinds of back problems? good lord
Well he's still whining and b***hing on the court, so I guess he is?
Yes Murray tends to be a difficult opponent for Djokovic and with his increasing confidence I am sure he will be even moreso. He tends not to be nearly as difficult for Nadal, and even with his increased confidence, with Nadal's more agressive than ever game, I find it hard to see that changing. So I am very happy that Djokovic killer Andy Muray will be back. I see a situation he takes Djokovic (Nadal's toughest opponent) out for Nadal a number of times, and makes Nadal's path to more slams and eclipsing Federer's bogus so called slam mark that much faster easier.
While I still have confidence in Rafa even in the Rafa-Djokovic matchup you know if they played in every slam final (as they pretty much would have without Murray back in the mix) eventually there would probably be a swing of momentum, even if probably only temporary like the last time Djokovic temoporarily took the edge in the Rafa matchup. Probably never on clay, but possibly on the other surfaces. Both are too smart to not figure something out playing that repeatedly, even if only temporarily. However Murray by his presence and problems he creates for Djokovic (and a lesser degree Nadal maybe, but more Djokovic) will prevent that from happening, and prevent Nadal from needing to say beat Djokovic in 6 or 7 slam finals in a row to win his next 6 or 7 slams. Some balance of Nadal vs Djokovic, Nadal vs Murray, and Murray vs Djokovic matches, rather than just Nadal vs Djokovic all the time will only help Nadal mantain his current winning edge over Djokovic too as it will give Djokovic less chance to get grooved and eventually figure out the matchup and what he needs to adjust the way Nadal has in the last year. The only tougher aspect for Nadal is there are some times he might have to beat Djokovic and Murray back to back to win a non clay slam, but that one more difficult aspect is more than negated by the two positives of Murray taking Djokovic (a tougher opponent for Nadal than Murray IMO, despite Nadal's current edge in the Djokovic matchup) out for Nadal sometimes, and Murray breaking up all the Nadal-Djokovic matchups and giving Djokovic less opportunity to get grooved and figure out a response to Nadal's new edge in the matchup.
I'm guessing Murray thought it went well, given the pic!
All the best mate get well soon
it could not have been that bad since he just played davis cup.
hopefully he can get back on the practice courts soon.
hope andy, while all injured in hospital..won't eat too much and go all fat like a mid 1970s elvis.
he wont win too many tourneys if he is full of hospital quadruple cheeseburgers and 34 portions of fries and 7 extra large milkshakes flown in from sunny Glasgow.
Mass suicide? Wow, there are some really classy people on these boards nowadays. Guess the administrators missed this one.
At least it went well!
Murray is one-upping Nadal on acting.
Seriously though, come back soon Murray.
This dude acts like somebody shot him in the knees when he misses a shot, or that his shoulder had been dislocated when he misses a serve.
But when he hits a winner, it's ostrich-face time!
I don't think so....Safin is handsome.
Murray won't get more than a couple more slams. How many weeks has he been at number 1?
Hope everything went well.
And to think the usual idiots were saying he was faking
That's good news. I hope he'll have a quick recovery. Hopefully he'll be in good form again by the Australian Open. Get well Andy Murray!
Be funny if Murray ended up with 4+ slams and never attained the #1 ranking
He's too inconsistent and has been battling with Nadal, Federer and Djokovic for the past 6-7 years
Get well soon, Andy.
Hope to see him at AO 2014 ...
Hopefully the surgery will help him maintain a high level for a decent period of time. It will be interesting to see how he schedules next year, because I'm convinced that this year he was deliberately leaving gaps specifically to rest his back.
I'm glad the surgery seems to have gone to plan. It will take much longer to find out how effective it's been, and how he'll recover, so I don't want to get ahead of myself.
That was good. That was better than good.
i say, tennis need this guy! matches now are sooo boring without this guy.
this guy is the epitome of interesting tennis, this guy..
Murray is retired player now.
it will be career ending injury.
are you kidding .
I'm happy as boring player will not play this season.
so Andy , recover soon and join seniors tour.
tennis. doesn't need this guy .stop boring us.
He's lying in his bed. Now there will be months of rehab, and the success of the surgery will reveal itself when he plays tennis.
He'll be fine and could make a Nadal-esque return, who knows?
Fastgrass? Is that you?
But let's hope something infinitely worse happens to you....
I hope he has a full recovery, but let's be honest. Disc surgery of any kind for a tennis players is not good, and could reduce quality of play significantly. Tennis is bad on a healthy back much less a surgically repaired back. Ask Agassi, Sampras and Federer about back issues.
Again, I hope he fully recovers but I have to think this will costs him at least a year before he has a chance to win a major again and he may not recover "fully" at all.
It most definitely is him. The style is unmistakeable.
That's the trouble with trolls. No sooner do they get banned than they pop up again under another user-name.
Hopefully, the mods will take note before he starts littering the forum again with his endless troll threads about Murray!
