    why can't Murray understand the facts that:

    1.Federer is more popular than him?
    2.He got only mugs to play all the way through quarters?

    He sure will get his chance to play under lights during Semis ;)

    He will never be as popular. He has the personality and charisma of a shriveled walnut and a game to match.

    Just because he's had some tough matches against Fed/Rafa doesn't mean his matches are fun to watch.

    Well, Djokovic and Nadal both disagree with you. They are both friends of Murray and both always speak well of him as he does of them.

    Again, when Murray won the USO, Nadal tweeted that his tennis deserved it!

    Why didn't they have him play Chardy after Federer's match? Instead of the doubles semi.

    They can play that one on another court or earlier in the day. It's only doubles.

    Like I said, his epic matches with those guys are great. His regular early round matches are not, and that's why he's not popular. When was the last time you saw Muzza put a beat down on a lower ranked player with highlight reel shots? Never.

    Fed can do that. And Nole and Rafa have their loud personality and court antics. Murray has none of this. In fact his personality turns off a lot of fans since he's so surly.

    I wouldn't buy into Nadal's false humility regarding Andy.

    Do you often pull opinions out of your @rse and present them as facts? That statement in bold is a fact is it? You've done the research have you? What sample size and methodology did you use? What were the results of your survey?

    If Murray's personality turns off so many fans can you explain why the USO just had its biggest TV audience for a final for many a year? A higher audience than for any of the recent finals involving the guys you list?

    Facts eh.

    Murray won't cry if he wins his Semifinal.

    You're up early Batz. Wonder why?
    Work backlog?
    Think Murray could have a tough test with Chardy today.
    How do you think he can prepare for the different night conditions if he gets through this one?

    He'll have more rest than Fed, but Fed will be more used to night conditions.

    Swings and roundabouts. Move along, nothing to see here.

    Of course Fed has all the night matches. He's had to play Davydenko, Tomic, Raonic and now Tsonga.

    Murray has had to play Haase, Sousa, Berankis and a tired Simon.

    Took the week off mate :)

    There's not much he can do about playing Laver at night - but it's only a very minor disadvantage and we shouldn't get too hung up on it.

    Chardy could be tough - I'll take any kind of win but would like to see a general improvement in level.

    The draw could have been Monfils > Delpo > Fed > Novak, didn't pan out like that and it was hardly his fault the others didn't play to their seeding.

    Just for all the whining crybabies, who have been bashing Murray for allegedly complaining...

    I hope that helps.

    Ferrer got the night match only because of Baghdatis.

    Obnoxious, abrasive personality; a joyless self-interested brat who, despite severe lack of talent, owes the entirety of his tennis fortune to luck and circumstances.

    Well Murray isn't complaining, but Federer is.

    "'I've got into a daily routine of going to bed at 3am and getting up at noon. I'd rather have afternoon games, you don't have to adjust your schedule. I don't think I've had breakfast since the tournament started. I don't think it helps me to have played at night at all."

    "Federer also laughed off the idea that Murray may be under-prepared for their meeting, having not gone beyond three sets in any of his five matches.
    'That's exactly where you want to be going into a semi-final,' he said.
    'He hasn't dropped a set? I'd say that's better because it's important to go in as physically fresh as possible. I had five sets with Jo-Wilfried Tsonga today and maybe it helped because it showed I had the stamina, mentally and physically, to stay strong when it mattered. All straight-set matches become a bit of a blur after a while - this one I will remember."

    This...Murray got a crazy easy draw, and I am amazed that they are the ones complaining.

    Gosh, the excuse making factor involved in that statement from Lendl is amazingly through the roof.

    That isn't complaining...Complaining would have been "Oh, the AO directors have been so unfair to me because I don't have an opportunity to eat breakfast. Woe be me". That is just stating a preference. The difference is that the former is largely excuse making, while the latter isn't.

    Murray practiced on Rod Laver last night before the Djokovic/Ferrer match. He looked good.

    If you're going to quote the great man, don't take it out of context in order to make it seem like he was complaining. He was merely answering a question.

    Q. Djokovic said after the long game last time he had to go to sleep like 5 a.m. and had an ice bath. I want to know what will you do tomorrow? You will go to sleep very late and also get up very late, skip the breakfast or something like that.
    ROGER FEDERER: Yeah, I've skipped breakfast for two weeks now. Seriously, that's what it's been. I've been going to bed at 3 a.m. every morning and wake up at noon. Is that a nice life? I don't know.
    I enjoy playing on Rod Laver Arena, but in some ways I'd rather have the day session because that creates a normal rhythm and a normal life. Going to bed at 3:00 in the morning and getting up at noon is not what you're supposed to be doing.
    But I'm happy to do it. It's going to stay that way for another few days, but I'm happy to get back to a normal schedule again.
    For me nothing changes now because next match, again, is going to be at night. I'm in perfect schedule here basically. Might be 3:40, 4:00 a.m. I might sleep till 1 p.m. It's okay. I'll handle it. I'll try to sleep in, do some stretching, massage, and then come out again and play well hopefully.

    TTMR is, as usual, being far too kind to Murray. It's not as if he even has any kind of excuse for turning out to be such an unpleasant, joyless character. What with his rich, pampered and spoilt upbringing (his multi-millionaire parents gave him EVERYTHING he wanted) he should at least be happier when on court.

    Contrast the sunny, smiling dispositions of the REALLY talented players like Djokovic, Nadal and Federer who, despite their desperately poor and deprived childhoods, turned out to be such fine ambassadors for their sport and THEY had to do it on talent alone. They were all so poor they couldn't have afforded to buy PEDs even if they wanted to. Only the rich, spoiled, talentless brats like Murray and Gulbis could afford to do that!

    :)
