Andy "Braveheart" Murray

Everybody is entitled to an opinion but you would think that on a Murray fan website his fans would not be so disparaging as they sometimes can be on here.  Andy has just won the greatest prize in tennis that has eluded so many great players, he took a month out so he was bound to be a bit rusty.  It is clear that his priorities sit at the GS tourneys and it is  more important for him to defend his USO.  The guy is currently holder of two grand slams and Olympic Gold Medallist.  He has competed in the last four GS finals if  that doesn't portray consistency am not sure those who have questioned his consistency will ever be happy.  When Andy was consistently winning Masters 1000's people were saying "ah but he's never won a slam" he's now won two and people are questioning his commitment to other matches. 

We support a guy who is essentially an individual, a sometimes complex one, who does things his own way, we can be armchair fans and obsess about what's wrong with him, why's he not trying but only he and his team know - the team that has aided and supported his transformation from nearly man to champion.  They will be on top of it and there will be a plan in place to ensure he peaks at the right time the USO.  It's disappointing when he loses but I for one look forward to the highs that usually follow.  Life as an Andy fan would not be the same without the occassional trip on the Murraycoaster!!

  I never really thought he could even win a slam  I'm still in shock over the USO  lol  I'm still buzzing after Wimby.     The constant roller coaster makes it more interesting even though it is a pain in the backside at times.   Very Happy        We each deal with his losses differently.....   some more negatively than others Very Happy    although this loss is disappointing at least he hasn't lost 3 times to players outside the top 50 consecutively    ahem   ( Federer)  Wink

Andy was on a 13 match winning streak, he hadn't lost a match since he pulled out against Granola in Rome and yet with some people, the daggers are out, the crows are circling and the green street mob demand answers  doh

None of us knew what Andy's post wimbledon reaction might be, he took more time off than usual and yesterday we got the answer, he clearly is not ready yet but everyone on this forum should be aware by now that Andy does not slump for long, nobody would have been more annoyed with his performance yesterday than the man himself, maybe losing that match was the perfect way to *wake up* as it were.

Imagine how it must feel for Andy who has spent 7 years waiting to try and win the ultimate prize in tennis, and then to finally do so, i would suggest that if possible Andy would need at least 2-3 months if not more to come down from that, but instead here he is again training hard and playing hoping to do it all again in a few weeks time, i got nothing but admiration for the boy.

The Tradesman is not superman. People were jumping the gun and claiming he would go on a Djokovic like winning streak, and I knew it would not happen.

The Tradesman will forever be inconsistent, some jobs will be left incomplete, other jobs will be completed to the highest of standards; Wimbledon is the prime example of a job well done by The Tradesman.

He can't win them all. He has been brilliant so far this year he cannot be perfect all the time. He will improve I am sure further into the year. A few of the big names are in the same boat Nole had a hard game and took three sets to win. Berdych and Del Potro are out too it happens to the best.

I really don't get why people get so wound up because he lost, it's like it's some kind of personal affront to them, the guy just won Wimbledon for us, in fact i would feel hard pressed to ever be angry with him ever again ever... after years of Tim overachiever Henman and before that players like Andrew is my hair out of place Castle i owe Andy my sincere thanks, we all do, disgusting how people can all of a sudden just jump all over him after 1 lousy performance, an understandable performance given the circumstances after the summer he just gave us?

And you're free to stop dictating how people should react to Murray's subpar performances.

I didn't dictate.    I pointed out that you have a choice and if you choose to watch it is entirely your decision and your own fault if you feel you have wasted your time.
