Awful performance. One of the worst. Why even bother with anything but 3 slams these days if, apparently, Andy is the only player in history who tanks every event, or is afraid to get injured, or isn't interested in number one. Now he's seeded number three for the Open. Garbage. Don't act like this stuff doesn't matter. We used to defend Murray's lack of slams with his fantastic success outside those tournaments, but now, apparently, a lot of Murray fans are the biggest snobs at all - "it's not a slam, who cares, he's just getting some practice in". If that's the case why do we even watch anything other than the big three tournaments?
This is such unbelievable tripe, that I don't know where to start. Most of his rational fans recognise that 6 weeks ago he achieved something so major for sport in this country, and for himself, that there was probably going to be a reaction in terms of flatness. This is happening. He has won 4 titles this year, (which is 4 more than Berdych), only one of which is a slam, so it's complete nonsense to say he is the only player who tanks every match, What has Djokovic just done, and done a few times this year? I watched some of the match, today Berdych played better than Murray. Many of the matches between the top players are won or lost between a few points. I don't think Murray played that badly. When Murray beats a good player, it is often said that Murray didn't allow the other player to play well. That's what happened today. Surely some of the cretins on here can realise that Berdych is the World No 6 - he is a very good player, on his day, the man who took Fed out in the QF of the US Open last year. He is going to win some of his matches against the top players. The difference between him and Murray, is that Murray can get through more than one of the top players.
I constantly fail to understand why some people on here profess to support him, yet write such nasty and unkind things about him. Why on earth are they not supporting a non tanking, not afraid to be injured, etc, etc other player. There are loads of non flawed players to choose from. If they dislike Murray so much, why on earth don't they swap their allegiance? No one is forced to support Murray. It seems hypocritical in the extreme to have such an unconvincing, and uncompromising attitude.
I really do dispair.
