Any one else shed tears when Andy spoke?

I'm a grown 29 yr old guy and I'm not even a Murray fan but that moment just got to me. I can't remember feeling as sad for a tennis player as I did today. Perhaps I will someday be a Murraytard :).

Im not gonna lie..I felt for the guy, as ecstatic as I was that Fed won, you arent human if you didnt get a bit emotional on his behalf.

I choked. and I am a huge Federer fan. From here on I will always root for Murray whenever he plays a non-Federer opponent.

why should we shed a tear... he is live and well, still young player with at least 3-5 good years ahead of him..

he should work on his play and mental part as well as Roger did all these years, and grand slams will be his.

easier said than done. He has the weight of the entire nation on his shoulders. Did you see Henman hill?

Yeah, it got me again.

Don't be a Murray fan if you can help it though! It's endless torture :) i'm too far down the line with the Murray fandom to change, not that i'd want to anyway.
 
i teared up a little, been an emotional day for me in other aspects, but also seeing Fed lift the title it felt good, cause him winning cheers me up a lot! I earned a lot of respect for Murray.

I believe that he will have at least one more chance to win Wimbledon.. at least.
Its not so bad to lose against the best player in the history of tennis, like Roger.

Murray should focus on getting away from injuries, and moments like this should make him tougher (mentally). So nothing is really that bad for him.

Although I felt bad for him, I didn't cry.

Shed a tear for A-ras when she cried yesterday though :(

Yea, defintely sad for Muzza. Hope he doesn't have his usual post-major-final loss let down. I hope he keeps soldiering on. Fed kept giving himself chances and look what happened. Murray has to keep doing the same.

I didn't cry but i did feel really sad for the guy. if Murray is in a slam final and not playing federer or Djokovic i sort of hope he wins. cos he never gives up and he is a very good player.

I felt almost guilty being Roger's fan. I really do hope Andy wins one - he's improved (most of) the really suspect parts of his game. However, it didn't seem like Fed enjoyed Murray's comments about his chances because he was 30.

This is what I was saying just before he lost today, Murray only seems to show his emotions/character when he loses, and that's when I warm to him.

I felt gutted :(

There's room for optimism though, check out the pattern of wins this year:

There's a pattern forming here...

Australian Open won by the #1 seed.

French Open won by the #2 seed.

Wimbledon won by the #3 seed.

US Open...?

No because it's hard to feel sympathy for someone with such poor sportsmanship during matches. Want him to win one and unfortunate for him as well as understandable the emotions he feels but it's for him to cry about.

Lets hope he doesn't go on a tear at the Olympics and in North America then! Sounds like moving up to the 3rd seed could be bad news ;)

Nadal may be #4 by the US Open, the underdog, and we know how well Nadal performs as the underdog. :D

In fact, while Federer and Murray have been tiring themselves out in this final, Nadal has been as busy as he ever has been, preparing himself for the Olympics. He has the chance to win 3 consecutive gold medals, on 3 different surfaces, in 3 consecutive attempts, on 3 different continents. Federer and Murray are almost certainly fatigued, and Djokovic has lost confidence. This record is Nadal's for the taking. :shock:

I was close to tears, couldn't help but feel for the guy, guess that makes me a crybaby.

I cried when Fed won then I cried some more when Andy spoke and when they showed Judy crying too. I think I might be partially on the Muderer bandwagon.

Impossible to not feel gutted for Andy irrespective of whether you are a fan or not. It was the same when he shed tears at AO 2010. But at the same time, I am really confident that he has a slam in him and it will come very soon.

I agree with the poster above.^

I am not a Murray fan but his emotional reaction made me respect him.

Murray has a few things to work on and he will win a slam. The biggest thing he needs to work on is his variety on second serve. I think Ivan Lendl will help get Andy over the hump.

The poster that said he laughed I don't get it was that supposed to be funny?

Apparently Cahill, Gilbert, and Tirico all shed some tears. I don't know how you can't feel for the guy, no matter how big a ******* you are.
 
Everyone did except for Lendl.
Yeah..Lendl should have gotten the entire Murray clan in a huddle and drowned the Centre court in their flood of tears..
What do you expect folks..he's the coach. If there's anyone who can cut past the emotions and get down to an honest debrief, it would be Lendl. Hé's paid to point out and correct Murray's mistakes..not to be his Agony Uncle.

Uhhhh....no!

As much as he fakes injuries on the court, I'm sure he could fake some tears!

When he cried in 2010, I felt bad and became a fan for him outside of Fedovic.

After Today, I almost shed a tear. If Murray gets to another GS final outside of Wimbledon against Federer then I will cheer for the Scot. Or a Wimbledon final against Nadovic....then Murray hopefully wins.

Hope people don't make fun of his crying or this match. He played better than Federer set 1 and 2!

I queued up a VHS copy of French Open Final 1981, turned down the shades, put on some romantic music, and GOATed myself.

Ok, yeah I cried when they showed Kim Sears freaking out. Very real. Shes a good girl. Keep her Andy. GOAT her once a day for me.

Sorry, but as much as I do commisserate for me AndyM's loss is still a distant second to Roddick's heart wrenching loss in 09. A way out of his prime Roddick that pust his heart and soul into the match and yet still came up barely short in an epic 5 -setter. We all knew that would pretty much be Roddick's last hurrah... Roddick did not cry as effusively as Murray did, but somehow that made it worse... he looked utterly broken, it was painful to even look at him.


Murray is still young enough to have quite a few more chances. If anyone deserves to win Wimbledon at this juncture, it's Andy Roddick.
