Is being an Andy Murray fan meaning you have to bend over backwards to make excuses for him? Did Joker do a training stint in Miami? Joker has played Wimbledon, Olympics, Montreal and Cinny. And he's played the maxm matches in each tournament except Wimbledon where he lost the semis. He's breezed through the tournament so far playing in the heat of the day. Im fed up people making excuses for Andy. I just want him to get on with it, fight through the pain barrier and win this thing. I dont care whether he's not had a training stint in Miami and I don;t care if its hot because its the same for everyone. Andy has played fewer matches than any of the other top players this year. He's had a big rest since the Olympics and should be fighting fit. He started Monday this year as well. So lets hear no more excuse about Andy being tired please.
Of no relevance at all, given that you are no more a Murray fan than I am a Fed fan. This is simply another in a long line of your posts that set out to make subtle and not so subtle digs at Andy Murray.
He doesn't need to make any excuses about anything. The comparison with the other players is idiotic in the extreme. Mr M, is a fellow human being. Some of us struggle in extreme heat or humidity, some of us don't. He is a man, not a machine. The number of matches is also irrelevant, there are so many other variables involved, from the adrenal post Olympic situation to the fact he might be missing his dogs. Personally I want him to win, but not at all costs. Watching him struggle round that court against Lopez, knowing he was uncomfortable and probably hurting made me feel for him. I would have felt for any player in that situation - even Fed. The fact Murray still won that match actually shows you the true measure of the man. As I say there is no need for any excuses. The day Murray stops behaving like a fallible human, and reinvents himself as an automaton is the day I personally stop watching him. Murray may lose against Raonic, equally he might not. If he does I won't think any less of him. When he eventually stops playing, regardless of whether he manages a Grand Slam or not, he will be on record as the best British male tennis player since Fred Perry, and an Olympic Gold medalist to boot. That is a hell of an achievement in its own right. I follow and support Murray simply because on his day, his tennis is a joy to watch.
For goodness sake lay off the complete negativity. Comments like the one above are just plain nasty, and I would suggest reflect infinitely more on the sort of person you seem to be, than the sort of person Murray seems to be. Given I don't know either of you, I can't say either way.
