Well I think Croft is paid to sit on her arse all day to be honest. Greg is clearly paid to provide insightful, thoughtful comment. Either that or he is paid to sit there and be thick.
Seriously though, I have screamed about Miami at the TV. It strikes me that even if it isn't relevant in physical terms, if that is the way to phrase it, although I personally believe it is, it is something that Andy usually does as part of his preparation that he hasn't been able to do, so it makes it significant. I think Andy deserves a lot of credit for getting on with it knowing he has struggled with the conditions. Not once has he whined or made an excuse. He has just stated the issue about Miami as a fact, which is why the comms are ridiculous for not picking up on it before. And these people are supposed to be experts. God help the rest of us if that is true!
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.
