AO 2012 R4: Murray vs Kukushkin

Quote

Gr8 Andy's on RL, about blooming time. Smile
Let's not worry about Kukushkin, bit of a flaky player in clutch moments. Let's save all our worries for Tsonga, now that's going to be a real  nervous

OOP is out for Monday.  Andy 2nd on RLA, so could be any time after 12.30 pm local time, so about 2.30 pm NZ time and that would make it 1.30 am UK time.

Thanks Bev. Finally RL! It's the optimal time to play there, they couldnt put it off any longer in other words.

Well if he isn't feeling pressure in a match he is expected to crush his opponent that would be quite surprising,

Look he is playing well and has the game to beat Kuku that is clear, but beating him in a fashion that makes a statement is a big ask we will see how he handles the situation

More meaningless twaddle.

I see the flea has voted on the poll for Andy to be beaten! Watch out I have my flea spray in my hand and will be pressing the button. hammer grr Evil or Very Mad I can't bear those little creatures as they really make you scratch and leave red marks. They can jump very high and far, hopefully our flea will land in hot water.

No, it's probably objective if anything. Hard to disagree with any of it if you remove the Murray spectacles.

I'm a pretty objective person, even if I say so myself. I'm critical of Murray too.
But the difference is I don't have a sinister agenda here that is against the very point of participating in a fan forum for Andy Murray in the first place.
After yesterday's performance the idea that it's a big ask to beat Kukush convincingly when he's coming off a 5 setter with an injured Monfils, is to me twaddle also & i suspect more to do with wishful thinking than anything analytical.

Look as I said before this is a guy Murray should beat, even though he stuggled with him in Brisbane he's come a long way from that.

Kuku would have won a lot easier v Monfils  but for inexperience at this level and letting the crowd get to him.

Murray has been a little more aggressive this week that is encouraging for him but he's going to need to maintain that, kuku has a huge forehand  and will be teeing off on anything short, so if Murray reverts to his instinctive style of play which is passive then the potential is there for kuku to extend this match beyond 3 sets.

I want Murray to beat Kukushkin in 3 and Potro to beat Federer and then the pressure for Andy to retain his points would ease and give him a chance of reaching no3
