Murray is finished...
 
After losing easily to Kevin Anderson 6-3, 6-1 in Montreal, Murray is done. He has no mind, and a weak retriever game. He will drop out of the top 5 next year, and slowly slide from there. Will never win a major. Will never shave again.

Thoughts?

I have to say I'm a bit surprised. Murray used to be so hard to beat on hard courts on the Masters level even a year ago.

adidasman 08-09-2011 12:02 PM

It's possible you're right. Not likely, though. He has much more than a "weak retriever game."

Hmmm...isn't that what people said after he lost in the 1st round to Donald Young in Indian Wells and then right afterwards in the 1st round to Alex Bogomolov in Miami earlier this year?

Then he makes the semis of Monte Carlo, Rome, French Open, and Wimbledon?

jakemcclain32 08-09-2011 12:05 PM

And he won exactly zero of those too.

Kunohara 08-09-2011 12:05 PM

Lol. The best part was when you said he will never shave again. You win.

Clarky21 08-09-2011 12:06 PM

Nah,he's far from done. I still make him one of the favorites along with Djokovic,Federer,and Delpo to win the USO this year.

That was a slump. That's different. This is Murray being mentally and physically out of it, and he will not recover. He knows he can't do it, and the pressure is too much. He's done. Today's match was the final razor.

This definitely opens up a clear path to the final for Nadal ;)

Anderson must have had a stupendous serving day... and Murray a bit off

HiroProtagonist 08-09-2011 12:10 PM

Well he was clean shaven and lost, so if he can he needs to grow an epic beard to intimidate the likes of KA.

Be a treat to see a Nadal-Federer final in Montreal :)

I agree. Murray should recover, this is not the first time this happens with him. But, it makes you wonder.

Sartorius 08-09-2011 12:33 PM

Didn't see the match but reading reports of it, from Murray's vantage point this once again looks like an extremely disappointing result, regardless of Anderson's display. Apparently Murray was not effective at all in this match and scoreline confirms that.

But no, he's not finished.

He's just been really inconsistent this year

He's also balding:


He needs more hair.

springthorpe777 08-09-2011 12:37 PM

I think he needs a new coach, someone who will kick his arse a bit. He always looks happy when he is training which is strange as he seems such a miserable git on court.

Amelie Mauresmo 08-09-2011 12:40 PM

I am a bit surprised at how well Kevin Anderson played he was actually very aggressive, serving huge, and moving well for a man that is six foot eight. I watched the match and Anderson played a perfect match he made almost no mistakes and just hit first strike tennis. Anderson just overpowered Murray. Murray plays a counter punch type of game but that is not enough to beat the best players.

I have never really seen Anderson play but he has a very good game. Even though Anderson isn't the best mover for a man that tall he seems to have good movement. Murray got deflated after losing the first set. I am just not impressed with Murray and Jimmy Arias even said the top players are really Federer, Nadal, Djokovic and not Murray. I have said this before but I believe the problem for Murray is mental he is so immature kind of like Andy Roddick. Murray has more talent than Roddick but he also lacks the emotional intensity to become a champion. I think Murray should concentrate on hiring a psychologist he needs to get in touch with his feelings and emotions. I also think he should start writing a journal as well.
