Murray has yet to drop a set Murray against pretty good opposition
pretty crappy opposition ı fixed it for you.
murray has yet to play anything approaching entertaining tennis and has been related to day matches as organizers worry his style of play will send TV audiences racing to the remote to spare themselves.
Murray yet to play any kind of decent opposition too. I wonder if these two statements are linked causally. Hmmm.
Almagro and Berdych dint drop a set until their quarter final exits
Wait till they close the roof.
He's been somewhat fortunate with the draw. I'm sure his level is dolid though, I figure Fed might win a set
He only dropped one set en route to the final in 2010, and that didn't work out too well for him unfortunately.
Hopefully if he does reach the final, he'll have more luck this year.
It would be incredible if Murray beat Federer and Djokovic in straight sets...Federer and Ferrer? Possible...
I think what people tend to forget is that Murray in the last 5 years has always played well in the Australian Open (notably the first week) and often very rarely lost sets till the QF/SF...
2009: Won all matches in straight sets till losing
2010: Won all matches in straight sets till SF (lost 1 set)
Draw included: Anderson, Isner, Nadal
2011: Won all matches in straight sets till SF
2012: Lost a set in R1, but won all matches till SF
Draw included: Harrison, Nishikori
The pattern is pretty clear, he gets through the first week (just like this year) with the minimum of amount of energy. It's only till the SF does he start to lose a couple sets.
If Murray was getting to the Roland Garros final with straight set wins then it would be more notable but it shows these matches in Melbourne for Murray shows that he's quite comfortable on this surface in the heat.
He lost a set in the QF to Dolgopolov. So actually, he's only achieved this once before, in 2010 (Rafa retired in the QF).
Murray has served well this tournament so far that's helped him get some comfortable wins and short matches!
Isner has the second best serve stats in the world and it's helped him to take on the worlds best players in his own terms and come out on top while avoiding the gruelling long rallies!
agreed and if murray can straight set 2006 peak federer than this should be 6-2 6-2 6-4 lol
Who has he played though? People went on and on about Novak's easy draw but the fact that I can't remember anyone Murray played makes me think that his was the easiest.
Murray to win the Haggis Slam without dropping a set!
Murray yet to play a decent opponent.
I shudder to think of what you would consider poor opposition. Noone inside the top 200, maybe?
yep. But this strikes me as a very calm Murray who took a monkey off his back,
okay he might not have played like tomic or any of those guys but berankis is a nice opponent and he had to play chardy who took out delpotro 80% chance of a straight sset win against fed 99% chance to win if murray in 2006 a little boy can beat peak federer thenLOL
1. He was 19. Not a little boy.
2. His straight set win over Federer in 2006 was about as impressive as Chardy straight setting Murray at Cincy last year:worthless. Both Federer and Murray bounced back from those losses and won the US Open 3 weeks later. Seriously, horrible ****-logic.
Let`s put it this way:How many sets would have Federer,Djokovic or Ferrer lost against Murray`s opponents? Maybe Ferrer one set but the other two probably would have straight setted those guys too
2006 did you see how small murray was ? and don't even call me a **** compared to all these other *******s
Yes, I remember Murray in 2006. He was nowhere near as muscular as he is now, but he was still not a boy. He was taller than Federer and also more muscular. He was still growing at that point, but he was already catching peoples attention with his runs to the 4th rounds of majors.
Yes, Axel89, below is a picture of a "boy".
You say you are not a ****? Well, lets take a quick look at your posting history.
Murray will r@pe people,eh? You are as tardish as they come.
Seconded. Huge **** who should be ashamed of himself.
That's just 1 top 20 player and 1 top 50 player, no top 10 players, average ranking 63. Not to mention that Murray was broken several times in matches.
Compared that to Federer's:
That's ALL top 50 players, 1 top 20, 1 top 10, average ranking 30.2. Yet Federer has NOT lost serve nor dropped a set until against Tsonga today.
OP must be having a laugh
Murray has had the cakewalk draw of the century in this event :lol: (not that he is to blame for it but still...)
This is Murray's best surface by far.
This thread is LOL worthy at best. 8)
Murray fans are deluded and paranoid. Read some of batz posts he is nearly always defending murray even when he is not being attacked, the reason for that is it backs up his fans seige mentality and thats a reason to support him other then the obvious. poor andy murray everyone hates him because of his teeth!
Thats not the reason batz, mainad and this fella.
Anyhow Chardy played like crap and who else has he played? Souza lmao.
Djokovic is toast.
lol, he's playing a bunch of nobody. the only seeded player he faced was simon, and simon is already exhausted from playing monfils
Haase is a dangerous floater who took Murray to 5 sets at 2011 USO.
Chardy had beaten Murray in their last encounter (2012 Cincinnati) and had just put out the #6 seed, Del Potro.
Current rankings don't always indicate how they will perform at a current tournament, do they?
So what? Murray has either never played these guys in Slams (Paire and Tomic) or has either a level H2H against them in Slams (Davydenko) or a winning H2H against them in Slams ( Raonic, Tsonga).
I really want him to win but acknowledge his issues and losing sets to journeymen has been a problem so its all good so far.
