He said that no matter what happens here, it won't affect Djokovic now being world number one when the new rankings are out.Did I hear him correctly earlier? I think he said this match will decide the #1 spot.
If he did then he was getting on my **** before the match had even started :evil:
True. I think the commentators played up his chances in this match WAY too much, Rafa the favourite, even with a dodgy foot and if Murray DIDN'T have a hip problem.People always says that. Alas
I think he's decided on Rafa's serve, when they're on serve, to swing away. It's a good strategy as it will help him find his range, and getting Rafa on the run is going to test his foot. Plus it shows that he feels confident that he will continue to hold his serve.Murry making too many easy errors.
Commies especially British ones always exaggerate his chances.True. I think the commentators played up his chances in this match WAY too much, Rafa the favourite, even with a dodgy foot and if Murray DIDN'T have a hip problem.
Both guys are hurt, Rafa usually starts fairly slowly, warms his body up, holds his serves, this should be doubly true today with the foot. Murray has to win the first set to have ANY chance.
Very smart. Ally McCoist, the Rangers and Scotland striker, used to do something similar in football. The first couple of balls over the top he'd run for at about 70% pace. The centre back would reckon he had the measure of him, and relax. The next one he'd go for at 100%, centre back caught unawares by pace he didn't know McCoist had, goal.No, everytime he plays Murray he returns like crap and make's Murray look like Sampras until it gets to 4-4 for some reason.
Don't you know the rules? :shock: Let's say of 100 players were on court it did the same thing they would all be excused whilst Rafa would be called and cheater.Called a trainer and is moving fine. Disgusting behavior right? What a cheater etc etc.
Wait. Wasn't Rafa who did it, nevermind. Legit injury.
