Tweet by Jamie Delgado claims Murray is leaving for 2 weeks of training in Mallorca' to get ready for Rio.
Yep found the tweet....very interesting and while he's defending champion points aren't really an issue due to him picking up almost the equivalent of what he'll lose after his Wimbledon win. Yes of course it's still points which will drop and which he will forfeit in regards to the "Race"...guess he rates defending his OG as a higher priority....in which case good on him!Nope. I misread it. Wasn't a Delgado tweet. It's a tweet from a reporter - Stu Fraser, who said Delgado told him - retweeted by Simon Cambers, another reporter.
If true he'll likely be training at Nadal's new Academy which is predominately HC's.Hope he knows that Rio is played on hard courts...
What? Nadal opened an academy filled with... hard courts? In Spain? That's insane.If true he'll likely be training at Nadal's new Academy which is predominately HC's.
Just had a look and that is quite incredible...I still struggle to see Djokovic losing his number 1 ranking anytime soon but if Murray can maintain consistency and Djokovic suffers another early exit or two...then anything is possible!Difference between Novak and him in the race is 815 points. It's not mission impossible for Murray.
Murray sets his own goals - even said recently the '75 year drought at Wimbledon' didn't bother him - he didn't care (wasn't alive for most of it). Having #1 for a few weeks isn't that big of a deal. Moya did it! Does anyone (sane person, that is) think he had a better career than Murray?He has never held it before, so I think it may be more important to him than to other Big 4 members.
Well, I don't really care, but he might regret it later.Murray sets his own goals - even said recently the '75 year drought at Wimbledon' didn't bother him - he didn't care (wasn't alive for most of it).

I don't think he ever will, and this could be his only opportunity but he gives that up.Murray can focus on next year...think he will reach number 1....too good not to. When the likes of the Slamless Rios ( should have won that AO against Doperda) got it.
He is just as tired as Novak.....
Toronto - Rio - Real Slam is going to be a very difficult swing.
Federer also has a gold and a silver at the Olympics already. He could have skipped it given how bad his year so far has been and he'd rather not risk sitting out of the US HC swing.Toronto - Rio - Real Slam is going to be a very difficult swing.
Basically the top guys have to figure out which of the three they're going to skip. And going into Rio without any hardcourt matches under their belt might be very, very risky.
Conversely, whoever of the big 4 crashes out of the Olympics early will probably be a lock to win the Real Slam. And it sadly won't be Rogi as he's got a great chance for a medal in mixed.
So it says here that this may be Muzziah's year at the Real Slam.
The future is digital- if people want to watch the match, they can simply watch it on TV or on the internet. And if the hypothetical tournament insists on seating spectators, then I'm sure it would be easy for them to fashion makeshift seats, or some kind of ramps around the courts where spectators can stand (Nadal is one of the few tennis players in the world worth standing for).
