    Oh and BTW.. Murray is NOT finished. FAR from it.

    He has a LOT of talent, regardless of what some haters here insist.

    His head will come together, sooner or later. Count on it..

    I agree. Murray need to get a good sports shrink and get his head on straight. He is good enough to win a slam,and I think he will do it sooner or later. Plus,he also has the ability to beat Djokovic,and should have won their Rome semi if not for his lousy mental strength.

    Looks good to me except I would switch Delpo and Murray around.

    I could say Nadal is just unlucky to be in the same era as Ivan Dodig ;)

    Just cause Murray gets upset twice means he's finished? No, he's not finished; Far from it. He's still young and he has a lot of talent. Just cause he lost doesn't mean he's done. God, I hate these threads where people say players are done just cause they have a bad beat!

    Whoever started this thread needs to see a doctor.

    Murray forces Djoker to retire after a set and a half of brutal tennis.

    For all who say Murray is done look at the Cincy draw.

    Murray is finished alright - finished winning Cincy without dropping a set.

    Actually, whoever was stupid enough to take this thread seriously needs to see a doctor.

    Also, I may point out that winning in Cincy has nothing to do with the original post. The OP says that he will drop out of the top 5 soon, will slide from there, and will never win a major. Winning Cincy is irrelevant.

    The only thing I was wrong about is him never shaving again. That, I'm genuinely surprised about.

    So, therefore, how does Murray losing in Montreal mean that he is "done"? That too must be irrelevant.

    Nice climbdown there fella. Keep on backing up.:)

    Because that loss was the beginning of the decline, is that not obvious enough?

    Agree. Also now is Murray's chance to really try and grab a slam with Federer and Nadal playing like garbage. I honestly hope Murray works his head out and can do it.

    I like hater threads reopened, and haters beaten in their own hostility. Next time you bury somebody, do an autopsy to make sure that the body is dead.

    It was a short revival.



    Also, if the numerous "XXX is finished..." threads didn't tip you off that it's a joke...well, I guess I can't help any further.

    It was all a joke? LOL.

    Would still have been a joke if we'd all agreed with you?

    If you can't accept people having a different point of view than yourself, don't bother asking for their "thoughts".

    I look forward to your next joke.:)

    As of now Murray is a solid top 4 player. He can pick up a lot of points at the US Open and even move to #3 by the end of the year.

    If you had all agreed, I probably would have left the thread as there would be no way to troll any of you anymore.

    And you would still appear to be a bawbag.

    Credibility is like virginity - when it's gone, it's gone. You popped your credibility cherry with this thread. The fact that you proudly bumped your own epic fail just confirms how hard of thinking you are.

    I got so excited I almost pissed myself thinking he lost in the first round, but he won, why the bump.

    Yes over 7 billion now.
    It's gone up one billion since the millenium!
    We are seriously screwed:

    One billion more people every 10 years.
    Something's got to give.

    Lendl's biggest challenge is retooling Murray's game around his weapons because Murray hasn't many as developed as, say, Rafa's intensity, Novak's balance and fitness, or Roger's caginess and stroke arsenal. Murray has perhaps the best set of wheels on tour but these he uses mainly for staying back and defending or counterpunching or playing cat and mouse slowly constricting the point like a boa when Murray should probably speed it up and impose his athleticism for cheaper points at some times.
    This is Lendl's problem: he has in his stable one of the fittest but likely the most coordinated top pro at the peak age physically twenty-five or so but this "peak" pro in Lendl's charge does not seem to enjoy discomfort or the pain like Rafa nor does he have quite the array of strokes as Federer, or the fighting heart of a champion nor can he (or anybody) sustain what is arguably the greatest "average" work rate on court like Novak; no, instead we have a soft-batched momma's boy whose off-the-charts levels of hand-and foot-eye coordination are mattering very little- partly because nobody seems to have ever told Murray forcefully enough to STFU when he was whining about whatever while growing up, and so, he has grown accustomed to putting on negative, attention-seeking airs in competition that probably do not serve his greater cause but are so deep-rooted that Lendl must demolish this architecture before Andy surrenders because individuals who throw tantrums tend to "have to be right."

    Very true, he doesnt seem to thrive in competition like other top players and he is so incredibly moody on the court. He can be playing great tennis, then just a few bad points can cause him to go off the deep end. His lack of fight in the GS finals he has played shows that mentally he just isnt there yet.

    Muzzer's finished winning slams. I predict Murray will NOT win another slam this year.
