IW 2012 R2: Murray vs Garcia-Lopez

Quote

Of course lopez was going for broke. Andy is getting a reputation for being vunerable in first round matches. I was watching the early scores yesterday and alot of players like Berdych, Wavrinka, Simon and Roddick all struggled but they all won in the end. However you look at it this is a bad loss we can all make excuses for him but for me "Sh*t just happens" isnt good enough. I tell everyone Andy is going to win a slam this year but not sure I really believe it (at the moment) still one consolation he had no points to protect! So disappointed.

Of course I feel disappointed but Andy is only human.. you cant win them all.. I didnt see the match ... Interesting that Andy got a night match.. where he normally gets a day match.. Conspiracy?!..hmm I will always believe in Andy no matter what He Just had a off day today.. im having flasblacks to the 2 previous years Andy plays American HC season *runs away*  Onwards and Upwards for Miami. cmon yeah  there is still the doubles Very Happy.  Andy will be gutted.. poor guy. Just needs to get Llendl back and teach him a few things. I love being a Murray fan... Its probably the most emotional rollercoaster that you will ever experience in your life!

So Andy lost 6-4, 6-2 to a player ranked No.92??  Utterly disappointed Frown  I hope this isn't another post-AO slump despite Lendl.

I don't think it is a slump because of the AO Aileen, he just did not play way well.

Absolutely dreadful! So much for getting ready for the US Masters swing. At least he did not try to excuse his performance other than to say he did not know what went wrong.

Pretty obvious that Lendl isn't actually making any difference.

"I didn't move my best tonight, but it didn't feel like I was moving really badly," said Murray, who was playing his first match since reaching the Dubai final. "My return let me down, and he hardly missed the ball, either. That's the thing. The level of tennis nowadays you get no easy first round matches and you play poor match, that's what happens. So can't allow it to happen. I don't know exactly why because I was playing really, really good tennis the whole of the week and the buildup to it."

Sometimes, sh*t just happens. 

I'll be watching livescores for the doubles but I'll be back for Miami
yes

I haven't watched the match yet or read all of the postings re the match. However, having read some I totally agree with Bevc. This time last year we were all shouting for Andy to get a coach - he has, and as far as I can see his game is changing due to Lendel's input. A BBC report I read first thing this morning suggested that his backhand went awol - I've noticed this in many of his matches since Ivan has been taken on board. Obviously, the tactic atm is to be more aggressive/improve the first and second serve and his forehand (which he has) it's becoming a huge weapon -  but maybe to the initial detriment of what was an amazing backhand. The match stats suggest that he was having a particularly bad day (again) and that G-Lopez was on his game. That's all!

It's not Jet-lag, it's not psychological (thank God) it was just a bad night. I'm sure the Murray team will be fully analysing what went on and working on those aspects in the next ten days. Roll on Miami - and let's all just hope this is yet another blip and also that more lessons will have been learned.

I am with Victor Meldrew!!!! So disappointing for Andy and for his backhand to let him down really is strange. Now we wait for Miami and hope he is back on his game.

nah You have to take the rough with the smooth.
OH Bev you never said a truer word - especially with AM! The smooth must be coming soon, mustn't it?

no I'm not making excuses but sometimes things just don't go how you want them, and IMO that is called life. It's so very easy to call it from the side lines but none of us are Andy. I have my off days, and I'm sure that Andy's no different. Mine is less public than his. Yep, it's disapponting that he lost but no-one forced me to watch or be a fan. I'd like to say that I was there when he wins his first slam but should it never (which I doubt it) then what? Life just carries on regardless.

I so agree with you Chris, we all have to be patient. it will be a while before we see any significant change to our Andy's game which can be attributed solely to Lendl.

The only thing Murray is consistent at is losing in the first round to someone ranked between 80 upwards. Bevc is right, forget Indian Wells and hope for better things in Miami.

Yes and at this stage in his career (at almost 25) this simply should not be happening and needs never to happen again - I genuinely thought matches like this were a thing of the past and that (as in Dubai) he might struggle but fight through somehow. 

Sometimes I just wish I could get in his head - because I'm convinced that's the source of his problems.  SO frustrating....

jk at 9.49 - I love your ability to take something positive out of a big dip on the roller coaster. I'm afraid it's days like these when I wish I wasn't so devoted to our Andy.  But it's a reminder that we pay for the ups with the downs.
As for boogers just stupid to say that Lendl isn't making a difference.  It may be that his influence wasn't apparent in this match as I didn't see it, but the fact that Andy is tending to come in more and stand closer to base line is surely an important difference he has made.  And perhaps the bh going awol is, as LL said, part of the adjustment to playing a more aggressive fh.  Do hope that Lendl hasn't messed with it in some way but don't believe he will have done given what he has said about not changing what is working (or something like that).
