    I am going to get hate from Mainad/Fedex/batz but I don't care, it has to be said: Murray's draw has once again, evaporised.

    Let's have a look at his draw to the SFs : Bye, W/O, Lolgopolov, OLD Stepanek.

    Then when he wins the Murray brigade will be out pointing out how awesome he is and how many MS1000s he has and how "Lendl has transformed him" and "he is riding the wave of confidence winning his first GS gave him".

    Now I expect the usual "Was it windy in Shanghai?" and "Ingerlund" remarks.

    Meanwhile, poor Fed has a brutal draw with home favorite Lu, compat Lolrinka and a tired Cilic up next.

    I fully expect the Murray trio to come in guns blazing. They are probably having a conference as we speak for how to handle this men_ace of a thread. (check my sig).

    Fed's draw is easy as well but not compared to Muzzah's. Stepanek and Haas have a tough draw.

    Yeah, the Murray trinity is vicious, I agree with tsitrapukcipeht.

    He sure is lucky that Murray guy. Not like Unlucky Roger, No Luck Noel, and Humble Luck Rafa - those guys always have to play the toughest opponent possible - like Stan, and Troicki, and Verdasco.

    And don't get me started on the bloody wind.

    Dude relax, every top player gets his share of easy draws. It's not any different with Murray. However, it's kinda weird that quite often his seemingly tougher draws turn to dust after a couple of days.

    For your reference, Murray had one heck of a draw at Wimbledon even with Nadal out early and nearly pulled through in the end.

    Hate? :) None of us hate you. We don't hate anybody. We leave the hating to you and the others on here who feel the constant need to post these endless, pointless threads about how lucky Murray is at every single tournament he ever plays.

    Let's have a look at the other draws. Federer: Bye, Lu (lol), Stan (his favourite pigeon), Cilic (part of Murray's easy USO draw according to you) .

    Djokovic: Bye, Dimitrov (please!), Lopez (part of Murray's easy draw at USO according to you) and then gets to play dear old Tommy Haas for a place in the semis otherwise it would have been HIS dear, old favourite pigeon, Tipsy lol!

    So yeah Murray didn't get to play Mayer. Lucky, jammy sod! :)

    So, won't any of that be true then? :wink:

    Well, we won't know whether it was too windy unless Murray manages to win the tournament, will we? If he wins it, I'm sure you'll be tripping over yourself to point it out. If he doesn't win it, then the wind was obviously no factor for the guy who does and you can safely go back to telling us what a useless, talentless, pusher he has always been!

    Reckon I've got that about right?? :)

    What you expect? He needs special circumstances to win anything these days, this being one of them.

    Disgusting.

    Murray gets easy draws, but they all do, Rafa's 2010 US Open comes to mind.

    If Del Potro had Murray's draws, he would be a multi slam champion no doubt.

    Alternatively you could say Murray has earned himself a better draw by accumulating enough points.

    You know that's BS.

    Since 2008 I believe, Murray's won 2-3 Masters every year with or without Lendl - If he wins Shanghai, his ability to win there with or without a cake draw is irrelevant considering he's won here the last two years.

    Lendl isn't even in Shanghai, neither is he 'riding the wave of confidence' considering he's lost a match since USO (where he also had match points).

    Del Potro with Murray's draws would be a multi slam Champion, LOL. Murray didnt lose to any opponent in a slam final Del Potro would have beaten on those days, and had they switched draws at the 09 U.S Open the Murray upset to Cilic never would have happened, they play one another in the quarters, and given their history on hard courts it is bye bye to Del Potro's only slam (while Murray possibly has 2 of them now). Maybe Del Potro should win a single Masters title before his fans trump his chances of multiple slams.

    Hmm I hadnt thought about it, but it is possible. They seem to have in common their extreme hatred of 60s or 70s tennis, their extreme bias to all players past, and their disdain for the WTA (especialy the Williams). Prisoner of birth though does seem smarter than TMF though (not that this is difficult to manage) so it is hard to say.

    Definitely not. PoB is eloquent with an agressive style. TMF is a nice guy but a bit naive.

    PoB is the toned down version of DjokovicForTheWin.

    And the first British winner of a slam in 300 years or so was a Scot. Never gets old saying it.


    Yes, a Scot

    What the heck is "shimfing"? Google doesn't give a meaning, even urban dict doesn;t have it.

    I just picked up "bumpf" today in another thread, two words a days is a lot for me :)

    p.s. please enter this word in the urban dict, chaps.

    1. I don't hate 60s and 70s Tennis. I actually love watching it because it had way more variety than the Tennis today. I just maintain that the standard of Tennis today is higher, not even that it is more entertaining.

    2. I have no bias "to" or "against" players past except in GOAT arguments. Which stems, again, from point 1.

    3. I have a disdain for today's WTA because it sucks. 10 years ago, I used to like it almost as much as I did the ATP.

    If only Murray had to deal with Malisse in the fourth and Youzhny in the quarter, then he'd understand what it is to contend with a real draw.

    We both know Murray would be quickly "evaporised" by his superior competition.

    hmm I agree that it's far fetched to say Del Potro would have been a multi slam champion (the truth is he was becoming a great player in 2009 and since his injury has been average so we'll never know if he could have carried on that form) but on the other hand it's not a certainty Murray would have beaten Delpo in 2009. I mean Murray is 5-1 vs him but he's 7-1 vs Cilic who he lost to at the USO that year. Murray was subject to random losses like vs Wawrinka as well.

    Plus the 2008 USO quarter final vs Delpo was close, Murray needing 2 tiebreaks to win the first 2 sets before Delpo got the 3rd with a break, Del Potro also came within a tiebreak of winning the Canada masters final they played, took him the distance in Miami 2009 and the WTF 2009. In fact the only straight sets match was the one Delpo won on clay. So he's always troubled Murray but fallen short. No reason he couldn't have beaten him in 2009 when Murray got pretty much battered by Cilic (a guy who is good but makes Del Potro look like Nadal in mental toughness and big match mentality) and Delpo was beating Nadal and Federer back to back.

    Let us be honest here, Novak Djokovic is getting more cup cake draws compared to Andy.

    Murray always has tough draws.

    All the time.

    All of his opponents make him talking to himself/coaches and grimacing and grabbing his knees and legs and stuff and even breaking racquets as well.

    Yes I agree. It is funny that Murray is also very unlucky when he gets his draws and then miraculously everybody disappears.

    Witchcraft?

    Yea, because back then Murray had great chances against Nadal, and his history of backing up big wins (like beating Federer in any slam final) is stuff legends are made off...
