Courage or unconsciousness? Andy Murray, declined throughout the match by spasms in the back, refused to give up against Jarkko Nieminen. Suffering from back in December with a big relapse after Monte Carlo, the world No. 4 took a risk when Wimbledon and the Olympics approaching. But'' Come on Andy!'' Which are mounted more and more heavily on the forums Chatrier and general ovation late in the game have chosen: it was a sacred moment of bravery on the part of the Scots.
Obviously, he never should have won. Walking like an old man early in the game, unable to serve (first to 114km / h!) Or do anything to normal on the court, the semi-finalist in 2011 was close to surrender. "The pain was there when I got up this morning and it did not help in training. During the match, I had back spasms and my clan told me to leave at the end of the first set, "Murray has entrusted to the exit of the court. Yet he is stubborn. Why? The answer is terrible for Nieminen: "Frankly, I decided to continue to the end of the second set because I saw Nieminen became nervous. I do not even know how I ended up winning that game. "
And suddenly the magic is back ... More than a miracle: two events rescuing Private Murray. The intervention of physiotherapy and panic of the Finn. Incredibly, the southpaw was unable to manage the injury side. Not knowing whether to play or play without thinking in office, he lost his rhythm and his nerves as and when the trend reversed. He accumulated errors, allowing time for Murray to see the effects of treatments act. If the British continued to grin, unable to sit down with changes in hand, he could again move correctly on the court and serve.
Murray is really Mister Mystery, as it took for the wound until it becomes magical. He has done so often wait speak the hallucinatory quality of his hand and his sense of the offensive. Amortized, lob, backhand cross-mode missiles, uncrossed unstoppable forehand and what about that slice backhand winner at the end of race that left the audience stunned and Nieminen? Murray is not the most talented player that has not yet been earned Major for nothing. Hopefully it is now able to play its next game and he did not put in danger after his season.
