    Apologies if this has been discussed, but I just finished watching the Fed/Murray semi and I just have to know.

    What did Fed say when he spoke to Murray and pointed at his eye?

    If he was saying Murray stopped, why is that something worth getting angry over? Is there some etiquette rule that Murray violated?

    I think, according to what I have read, and what I have seen, is that it was "you f-ing stopped."

    I think in general that he was angry because there were a few points where he had managed to outmanoeuvre Murray yet still lost the point. From what I have seen, Federer sometimes gets in moods where it irks him to no end when he believes an opponent is getting too lucky. Apparently, he had even shouted something to that effect (about Murray being lucky).

    I think it all just built up inside him, along with the fact that he was serving like me. :lol:

    Federer misplaced his Old Man medication. He wasn't shouting at Murray, he was actually displaying anger at his box.

    Yeah right, Mard. Murray stole his old man medication and then kicked his cane out prior to the match. He then hid his "Just for Men" gray hair remover. Bush league stuff.

    Murray does not require Old Man Medication (OMM), he already has ties with Dr. Fuentes from his time in Spain and possesses different measures of western medicines.

    Murray was incredibly lucky during that match. He hit so many shots that just happen to land right on the baseline. The law of probability would have dictated that half of those shots should have landed long but he kept hitting the baseline. That's pretty lucky, if you ask me.

    Yes, Murray played extremely well and Federer served terribly but Murray's luck certainly didn't hurt.

    And the harder Murray works - the luckier he seems to get.

    Seriously BP - this is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen posted on these boards. There is a 'law of probability' that defines how often a given shot should land on the baseline, and the norm is 50%? Are you sure?


    You know that guy you like, the one with the 17 grand slam titles. When he was dominating the world of tennis whilst hitting lines at a rate > 50%, were you writing posts about how lucky he was?

    Thought not.

    The key point is murraa serve darn it was too strong to break!!! and fed cant put his first serves in ...he looked somewhat hurt during the entire match playing casual catchup which is unlike feddy and also evidenced by his 1.5 hour late presser after tsonga match. Truth will come out later as why he was unmotivated

    I think Fed commented on how ugly Murray's outfit was.

    Lol, I like BP -- in a world of 100 sq in Babolat polyester bashing mongoloids, we need guys who can remind us why the late '70's/early '80's were so popular -- but, that is some seriously sour grapes right there.

    Federer making Tomic look like a well-brought up kid.

    Hey, seriously, if he did use the eff word, shouldn't he be given a code violation ?

    Fed snapped. He usually doesn't take losing well.

    Murray wasn't lucky, he was simply played well. If it were Fed hitting those shots you wouldn't say it was luck.

    If Murray hesitated, that's well within his rights and I'd say pretty normal when a ball lands on the line or close to it. If it affected Fed's concentration, I don't think it's because Murray deliberately tried to throw him off.

    Murray had it right. Fed fired himself up with that moment and raised his game. They can take it as big boys. I just wish Murray was more gentlemanly at the handshake but that's a minor thing.

    End of the day, storm in a teacup as the Brits like to say. :)

    Ignore BP. Sampras used to be his guy, now Fed is. I remember his Fed bashing days when he hadn't yet crossed 14 slams.

    You lost me there. What did Murray do at the handshake? I didn't notice anything special.

    i dont think he used it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DEprAqJ_UAM although i cant make it out what he said. But Roddick said in an interview with Jonathan Ross that you can use the F word like sharapova does here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=htF0eMiEHvk and thats fine but what you cant do is directly say it TO someone. LIke **** YOU

    Federer was lucky to win 2 sets. it should have been a straight set demolition. but sometimes players do get lucky and fed was able to eke out 2 sets he shold have lost.

    he was ahead in the first TB throughout the whole thing. I know Murray made a mistake with the overhead but still. 4th set it was all fed in the tb

    Yes bro, he was so lucky that he kept hitting his shots in, just like Kobe, MJ, and LeBron get lucky over and over again when they make their jumpshots, am I right? Luck is a function of something happening over and over again, not something that happens one or two times (that's skill).

    Idiot Fed fans are as sore of losers as the donkey they support.

    Come on I'm the biggest Fed fan, Murray played great, he AIMED for the lines and got it. Fed just played tired, unforced errors and no serve, that's why he lost.

    He's won 17 grand slams. He's earned the right to do anything he wants.

    Heck, if he started every match against Murray by kicking him as hard as he could in the nose, I don't think anyone (even Murray) would complain.

    Murray deserves this win... Is this turning into a rivalry*?

    I think the high level of tennis Murray was playing is starting to get to Federer. Especially after their last few important matches against one another (Wimbledon, Olympics, etc...). It must be annoying for him to have another player who will test his tennis and threaten him at slams. It means he has to raise his level of tennis yet again. So you start to see the competitive side of Roger, it's not always pretty.

    Still, it's amusing how puritanical people are about this, as if we don't know what goes through one's mind during a tennis match, or that we haven't heard these words on court before.

    Question:
    What will happen when Murray eventually tries to Roger with the tennis ball at the net, Lendl style?!

    _ _ _ _
    * Obviously there is no comparison in terms of achievements or impact on tennis, but Murray is now one of the few guys who can give Roger a hard time on most surfaces and has shown that he is beatable. Murray's tennis is that good now.

    There's no rivalry here. I doubt Murray will lose again to fed. That's not a rivalry, that's a rabbit. Fed is now Murray's rabbit.

    That's an odd prediction. Federer beat Murray in straight sets just a couple months ago.

    2013 is a new year. What I saw last night was enough for me to pass judgement. Don't get excited, we're all entitled to our opinion

    I also have a hunch that Murray may never lose to Fed on hard again. Fed is losing ground on hard. He doesn't just lose to Djoko. He loses to Nadal, Murray, Delpo, Berd. I think every passing season, the list is gonna get longer.

    Your % on clay is insane. We've all seen what Fed did on red clay last year...
