Some great posts as always, I do find comfort on here, most of you guys are so nice and supportive. Murray fans are so much more genuine than others, its like we actually care about him....I'm sure Andy knows that too!

Am I one of those?

Would you like an honest answer or should I just say "No Gangsta, not for me".    I think Teejay, Rachie, Bev, Lb, Caroline, Scot - all very supportive - don't resort to insults.    They no doubt think Andy is insulted more than enough by scumbags in the media.

You don't think I'm very supportive?

I always thought the back injury would come back. Well folks thank god he won a Slam last year as he won't take any crazy cortisone injections like a year past.

2007 was horrible when he missed the clay/grass stretch although Jamie winning the doubles was good fun.

I just think you get carried away sometimes during a match.    In the cold light of day you are very supportive but the women usually are kinder in my opinion.

You need to be cruel to be kind.

Just to play devils advocate didn't a few people on here site potential back problem when stan wiped him out and get told they were making excuses for him.  Perhaps they were right after all.  Everything is easy in hindsight.

Possibly, though he did stay on in MC to do loads of practice, which would be odd with an injury. That may not have helped. I'll admit to getting a bit annoyed with those who decided he was ill because he was sniffing and a bit sweaty in press immediately after his match.

.....the lower-back injury, which he says has been troubling him since late 2011 and so undermined him on clay last year, had returned with a vengeance. "It was a slight issue for me in Madrid last week," he told me afterwards. "I practised yesterday and it felt OK, but once you get into match conditions, that's different.

"It was quite sore early in the match and I decided to stop after the second set, as I wouldn't have been playing tomorrow even if I had got through. It's the [problem] I had during the clay-court season last year, which was apparently not an injury according to a lot of people, and it's been there for a few months now."

That last comment was a sign that he has not forgotten the criticism he received after last year's second-round victory over Jarkko Nieminen at Roland Garros. Former Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade described him as a "drama queen" for serving remarkably slowly and repeatedly clutching his back after lengthy on-court treatment.

Aww, me supportive? Well, I do try lol.

I just don't take losses personally, as if Andy is doing it just to thwart me. The way I see it is that if Andy has tried, has given his best, or rather, the best he is capable of on the day, it's all right. I think I, most of us to be honest, can see the player Andy is, the player I still think he is going to be. In comparison the odd bad day, because they are fewer and further between now, means nothing. I would agree as well, and today shows it well, that Andy puts up with a lot from others. He shouldn't have to take it from fans as well. That's not to say I don't question, or that I don't mutter a bit sometimes during matches (I have been known to be worse than the man himself lol) or that I don't do the odd 'come on Murray, hit the bloody ball man!', but that last one isn't needed so much now!

I don't resort to insulting Andy. Insulting his opponents works much better for me lol.

On a different subject, did anyone else think it was weird that Granollers signed the camera after the match today? I might be being pedantic, but to all intents and purposes he didn't win. It was a walkover. In effect it was the closest thing possible to a draw. I wondered if there was some confusion when Andy retired and someone just shoved a pen at Granollers, or he got carried away and just did it, but it seemed strange to me in the circumstances.

Agree completely. Brilliant to see Andy standing up for himself. I think that shows how confident he is in himself now. Brilliant stuff. I love it when he shows that he won't just accept people having a go at him.

I hope Sky mention that comment tomorrow.

Id be surprised if Andy misses the French to be honest but if he does so be it. Wimbledon is the biggest tournament now for Andy and he should do everything to make sure he is 100%.
