    Watching Murray against Stepanek, and seeing the same old antics from Murray I cannot stand the guy anymore. He is such a little brat and he is a complete disgrace to the game. The commentators themselves were annoyed with his behavior saying they thought he would now start to behave like a champion and a real man.... Well, no he is still a child and doesn't behave like any of the real champions Fed, Nadal, Djoko.

    One commentator was astonished that Murray was complaining again every time he was losing a ball that he was sick, tired, injured this and that.... Jesus, become a man Andy! I am so tired of his constant complaining, badmouth, and racquet breaking, ball throwing in the stand etc....
    You have no dignity, just accept the fight like everybody else in any physical and mental state you are in, thats' it.

    Give the guy a break he is a WINNER and hates losing i'd rather see that than watch him tank sets 6-0 like wawrinka or tomic. He is as fighter and there is no rule that says he must be like djoker, rafa or fed.

    Agree with OP.

    I am getting tired of seeing that brattish look on his face EVERY TIME he loses a point. Even more annoying than Nadal's raving antics after he wins a point.

    A+ thread, not even joking. It's refreshing to see someone finally voice what we all feel. Many choose to overlook his many flaws and shortcomings because "he is all Britain has got" but I for one wish to distance myself from such a disgrace. Slam champion (we can debate the merits of this win some other time) yet in back to back matches he breaks a racket? Or what about the swearing at the top of his voice? It's about time the umpires manned up and started dishing out warnings and point penalties for his behaviour. The worst thing is that he, and everyone in the stadium, knew he was going to win against Stepanek, so why all the humdrum?

    I know, I have come to expect them to quote about 90% of my posts to tell me off or to preach the virtues of Saint Murray.

    P.S: That pic is hilarious

    Really? I have seen Clarky going on about how Novak's draws are lined with sponge cake. I think Clarky is a closet Nadal-lover anyway.

    He hates losing, nothing wrong in any professional sportsperson to hate losing.

    Nadal lost at Wimbledon and hasn't played since because of injuries so its a bit harsh to jump on Murray if he complains about injuries.

    Federer has won more than most (ever) but when he loses he has a face like a smacked @rse, because he hates losing.

    The only exception I can see is Djokovic who will willingly go around the other side of the court to congratulate his opponent on becomming the first Brit to win a major in 76 years having carried the expectation on a nation on his shoulders since he was 18 years old. But Djokovic is lovably bonkers.

    I don't see the point of a thread that is just b1tching about a player. Keep your b1tching to your playgrounds and get back to talking about tennis itself.

    You obviously misunderstand the entire thread. Obviously any tennis player in the world would prefer winning over losing. The difference is that Murray has a sour face almost every time he loses a point, whereas other non-brattish people would normally move on and accept the situation.

    Guess I'm a brat too. I get annoyed when I lose a goal, a point, a game.

    And I don't conceal it.

    Murray is the #1 British player, #3 in the world. Lots of deluded little kids look up to him. It's his duty to watch his mouth/behaviour for the good of the sport.

    if you care for your health, i advise you to stop trying to argue with the Murray camp. i know it's hard to stay silent while you read those replies but it's worth it!

    I am not always a fan of Murray's negative antics, but I would be pissed to if I was losing to a guy like Stepanek. Stepanek is a man few people respect and nobody likes, and Stepanek was playing pretty well from what I could see on the highlight reel. Credit to Murray for digging deep and working it out, even if he was somewhat less than classy.

    You are so oblivious, so clueless, it gives me a headache.

    Nobody says that he should LIKE losing. We are slagging him off for swearing and *****ing even in regular, not particularly frustrating matches, like this one.

    Yet here you are, basically white knighting a grown man, making a preposterous strawman, as if he actually claimed that "hating losing" is bad.

    How often do you see Federer or Nadal cuss like a sailor CONSTANTLY like a hooligan? If all he did was "making sour faces" this thread wouldn't exist.

    I mean, good God.

    Well.... I guess some people need to be spoon fed. Of course all champions hate to lose! That's not the point. The point is how one responds to losing. True champions are also gentlemen. They behave with dignity whether win or lose. Makes it clearer?

    Well, the nasty laser stare he simultaneously gives to the ballboy leaves no doubt in my mind.

    Not particularly frustrating? He was a set and a break down. That's plenty frustrating when you're not playing your best tennis.

    Not noticed Federer, although he often takes his frustrations out on the crowd (Shut Up! Be quiet! etc,) but Nadal does it in Spanish of course while Djokovic often screams things in Serbian that would make Murray sound like a choirboy!

    I wouldn't bet on it.

    Good God is about right. I'm not defending his use of swear words but do me a favour, he's hardly alone is he? Connors, McEnroe, Hewitt, Roddick, Haas, Fish, Agassi all immediately spring to mind and I've already referred to Rafa and Nole's ability to use their native languages so as to make it not so obvious.

    Murray may cuss a bit but he doesn't spend time abusing line umpires (like Nalbandian at Queens) or smashing up benches (like Djokovic at FO final) . So why all of a sudden is he the worst thing ever to appear on a tennis court when there has been and continues to be much worse behaviour from other players that nobody sees fit to start outraged threads about!

    If you don't like Murray (and nobody says you have to) and you don't approve of him for whatever reason, then refrain from watching him and talk about someone you do approve of in threads with a more positive spin instead of getting all worked up about one player as if he's just committed mass murder on centre court or something! :rolleyes:

    Apologies if my post has upset anyone, judging by some of the rather spiteful responses. But I'm sorry this just sounds like someone getting picked upon.

    He is not the only sportsman who swears or gets upset if he loses a point. I'm sure they all do at some point.

    I think my point has been misunderstood when I said I don't see why a thread like this is necessary or relevant. Yes he gets upset, but all players have at some point.

    Has Nadal not berrated officials, has Federer not smashed a racket in anger, has Nalbandian not injured a pensioner?

    I just don't see how picking on a human's weaknesses and personal faults is thread worthy.

    Ah I see, you have a personal hatred of Murray. I'll be the first to admit he should clean up his act now he's a GS champion and the rest but he is CLEARLY calling himself a **** head. As regards ignoring the ballboy, they all do that.

    Why do you hate him so much? Typical "hate those with what I don't have" British thing?

    Yup, you're a brat. Annoyance comes from unforced errors. Try remembering it's not your job and more people will want to hit 3.5 with you.

    Don't worry about it. You are the voice of reason. No-one is saying Murray is perfect and some of his occasional negative mannerisms can irritate his fans too (like me) but there is a well-known bunch of guys on here who can't wait to lay into Murray and tear him apart for anything they can lay their grubby little hands on whether it be his style of play (boring pusher etc.), his extraordinary, freakish good luck (only way he can win matches etc.) or his frustrations on court when not playing well (no other player in the history of the game has EVER behaved so badly etc.).

    Most of them are laughably predictable. You'll soon see the well-worn pattern and get used to them eventually.:wink:

    I thought the same thing first, but then again it's hard not to notice a ballboy stading next to you with your wide open towel, and regarding the ******** remark why would he say to himself "take your time ********"? He seemed to be looking at someone when he said this.

    No buddy. This is a forum and people are here to express their views on tennis and players. No one has to agree with what one says or be nice to players who don't know how to behave or do not want to behave on TV. You seem to enjoy, and even rejoice, in Murray's antics but you are a minority in this thread. So if you don't like the thread just go and start your own thread on how great an example Murray is for the younger generation of players and maybe in 5 years time we'll have plenty of swearing and racquet smashing little brats on the ATP tour.

    Yes it can happen to all of us.... once , maybe twice. With Murray it's every match whether a 1st round or a final, and mind you pretty much every point of the match. See the difference?

    I see you don't like to read the opinions of someone who disagrees with you do you or you wouldn't have come out with that preposterous statement. What did I say in an earlier post? I'll quote it again for your benefit:

    "No-one is saying Murray is perfect and some of his occasional negative mannerisms can irritate his fans too (like me) but there is a well-known bunch of guys on here who can't wait to lay into Murray and tear him apart for anything they can lay their grubby little hands on whether it be his style of play (boring pusher etc.), his extraordinary, freakish good luck (only way he can win matches etc.) or his frustrations on court when not playing well (no other player in the history of the game has EVER behaved so badly etc.)."

    It's just that some of us try to put it into some kind of perspective, unlike you.

    Oh I see. Did we have a generation of foul-mouthed, racquet smashing little brats on the tennis tour in the wake of Connors and McEnroe, then? Or can we expect to see some linesman-kicking little thugs like Nalbandian as well?

    Somehow I think the world of tennis will survive the occasional negative antics of Murray given that its survived so much worse that has gone before and is going on now. But I guess your right. Who am I to try to interfere with your righteous indignation about Murray's truly evil and horrific behaviour. I just look forward to seeing an equally outraged thread from you when somebody else puts a foot wrong and will think it a tad curious if I don't see one!
