What Made Fed So Mad At Murray?
 
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:

I was wondering this too?

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.

sandiegoman 01-26-2013 12:22 AM

I stand by Federer, flight of the golden eagle!

kalyan4fedever 01-26-2013 12:40 AM

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

guitarplayer 01-26-2013 01:24 AM

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 ?

veroniquem 01-26-2013 08:20 AM

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