Are Murray and Djockovic on something?
 
Lance in disguise. That is what I think of when I see the two aforementioned.

Look at the physique of Muzza at the end of last year to now. The guy has bulked up in a big way.

And Lance 2.0 as most of us know has some major question marks.

Today's match was a case in point. At the end of 5 sets Murray looked fresh as a daisy and that playing another 5 would have been no issue for him. Granted he was pushing fed around on a string but he had to do some running as well.

The guy has added some serious power to his game not to mention serve. My only query is so soon all of a sudden? How have him and Lance developed the ability to not get tired? EPO's perhaps.

p.s. On a side note was mightily impressed with the fight the Swiss master showed. At age 31 to run around like a demon for 4 sets was painful to watch for me let alone imagine doing at his age. My respect for him went up after this match. My only regret is his serve percentage. If he had served 70 or 80% he could have won. Why his is serve letting him down continuously?

p.p.s Was it just me or did federer tank the 5th. I mean it seemed that he gave it his all in the fourth and preceding sets. Yet either tanked the fifth or for the first time I saw that he maybe got tired. Whatever it was it was not the normal fed in the fifth. He seemed a vacuous shell of himself in the 5th.

not to mention his 20 or 25 aces in this match ;)

I think it's time for a sticky doping thread so all of the doping talk can have a nice and tidy home.

they are just high on life.

Govnor 01-25-2013 09:46 AM

They get high on beating Fed

So you are surprised about a 25 year old player that only played three setters during the tournament, enduring a five setter, but you are not surprised about a 31 year old player that played a long five setter the previous round and again a five setter today?

Are you on something?

Macro80 01-25-2013 09:51 AM

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if tennis had a cycling moment. I hope I'm wrong though.

Not surprising when that 32yr old has been at the forefront of calls for drug testing in tennis for the last 3 years so no .

The 31 yr old wasnt fresh as a daisy at the end either. Thats the point the poster was making.

dudeski 01-25-2013 10:03 AM

Wow it is so shocking that a 31 year old Federer in its 6th post prime year lost a 6 year younger prime Murray after having to play back to back 5 setters while Murray had a 3 setter.

It sure means Murray must be on roids.

Two words: Ivan Lendl.

Murray has not bulked up in the upper body from end of 2012 to 2013. He said it looks like it only because he wears a tighter fitting shirt. He has added 4 pounds of muscle to his legs however in the off season.

how many gs title will Roddick have one Fed is stripped of all his titles? :)

if nadal, novak, murray can be under suspicion, why not Fed? what he is doing out there as a 31 yr old does not seem physically possible.

Đoković is on donkey cheese & excellence.
