    I'm watching the Murray/Stepanek match right now (live on my iPhone) and Murray's hair is huge. Maybe he's doing the Sampson thing and trying to get extra strength by not cutting it. At least it's no longer the same cut as his mom.

    If you had looked closely, you'd have seen his hair thinning quite a bit on top. That's why he's growing it out, to hide his bald spot.

    actually.... long hair makes bald spots more visible. Short hair makes the hair look fuller.

    With normal hair, yes, but those crazy curls can be used to hide anything, from a bald spot to a kilogram of cocaine.

    I think this new look may just be because he can't be bothered to get his hair cut, rather than a concious decision to sport the mop head look again.

    He REALLY needs to keep his hair short, or just get dreadlocks. :D

    But he can't look closely because he's WATCHING ON HIS IPHONE? Didnt you pay attention, that was the most important fact in the original post.


    Exactly. This is the same guy who admitted that when it gets long, he usually just cuts it himself. He is the exact opposite of Feli Lopez, the ATP's biggest metrosexual. ;)

    He should dye it orange and then go win Wimbledon. Then the whole country would look like a bunch of Ronald McDonalds.

    From what I read, he spends so much time playing Xbox that he doesnt have time to worry about his hair.

    The guy has more pressing matters than his hair...like for instance his tennis game.

    Murray's mom would play equally as well as he has in the last few tournaments - losing miserably in the first round. Doubt it has to do with his hair though.

    Murray should grow a beard and go homeless in Glasgow, begging for haggis on the streets.

    Maybe he's been inspired by the new cult hero at Chelsea, David Luiz.

    Murray is a boy in a man's body. He's trying to look older with his hair longer.

    I'd say he's trying for the Carlos Valderrama look.

    Makes sense to me, coming from a family with Scottish descent I can tell you how tight with money we are. Copper wire for example was invented when two scotsmen fought over a penny.

    Who knows, he may have developed a tennis related superstition and will only cut it once he's won a tournament [​IMG]

    If that's true, considering it's the clay and grass season coming up, he might end up looking like this:

    I must admit, when I first saw him on Monday I wondered if he was growing an AFRO!

    That's who i thought of first when i saw Murray. Including the steroid muscle look.



    Not saying he uses steroids, just going for the look.

    Murray is nowhere near big even for a person ho moderately works out without using steroids.

    There is a reason he cannot generate any pace off his groundstrokes and that is because he is quite weak.

    lmao, Anaconda, why do you persist with the typical murray bashing that clearly exposes you as one of his other many clones?

    try and be clever by hiding your previous names BETTER....

    I suppose you might not believe me but I have no idea who 'Anaconda' is. I presume poster around here notorious for 'bashing Murray.'

    But anyway, that does not narrow the field down as I am far from alone in the bashing of Andy Murray, indeed he is almost universally disliked among tennis fans, even in his native Britain. His negative attitude, boring persona, antisocial tendencies (videogames) and frankly mind-boggling over-achievements given his physical limitations simply do not endear him to many.

    Nope.

    Yeah, yeah. It must of been a coincidence your other guy Blue Cat got banned soon after i called him out for being yourself. Yet made a case for himself like in this instance of not knowing what i'm talking about. It's evident your tendencies and therefore i'm calling you out for what and who you really are. In particular, the Murray hatred and Hewitt/safin/Roddick loving. It's only a premonition of what's to come in regards to your status here.

    Ciao.

    Fine, I don't have an affinity for Saffin or Hewitt. I like Federer, Djokovic and Nadal. Believe what you will but I better not get banned just for you thinking I'm someone else.

    He most certainly is not! The vast majority of us British tennis fans are great supporters of Murray and why the heck wouldn't we be? Who else is out there to represent British tennis on the big stages? A big fat NO-ONE,that's who!!

    So he likes videogames,so what? People who've actually met him confirm that he is one of the friendliest,nicest guys around (go and read the thread about best and worst experiences of meeting players).And I fell about laughing when you describe,quote "mind-boggling over-achievements given his physical limitations do not endear him to many! unquote. For starters,even if any of that crap were true,don't you think that would be a reason to ADMIRE him,not SNEER at him? A guy who overcame 'physical weakness' to beat the best players on the tour time and time again and win loads of titles into the bargain!
    That is SOME achievement! In actual fact,he's one of the fittest guys on the tour (though he often deceptively likes to give the impression he's tiring in a match).

    No-one's forcing you to like Murray.We all have our personal likes and dislikes.But whether you like him or not,you cannot deny his achievements as a player and his place in the top 5!

    He did a lot better back when he had the carrot top look I feel. Maybe the guy is just going back to his roots that's all. Time for Fed to pony tail up.

    Murray can hit big forehands - but he doesn't often go for winners. As far as the roids go - nowadays its HCG, Insulin and roids - hard to detect and good for any athlete.

    I wouldn't be surprised if half the tour was on PEDs. Once one guy starts doing it - everyone feels they have too. I don't think people understand how much an edge they give guys who are nearly at the top.

    You give any guy in the top 100 unlimited PEDs and make the other guys go clean - and that dude will be top 5.
