Very wise Tessie. No point putting yourself through it. Can't believe this was his intention even if he does want to peak at USO. So much for the new diet and us all saying how we was looking like a new man. Unfortunately he looked too much like the Andy of the post AO slump. Just really hope it was a one off as he can't afford another slump this year.
Why oh why do we keep talking SLUMPS?
Murray's big mistake was in not playing a warm-up tournament, instead faffing around with fitness training in Miami, and the lack of match practice told. Of course he couldn't know who his R2 opponent was going to be 2 weeks back when he could have played in Washington or LA, but he should have been prepared to play anyone. He's paid the price for lack of preparation before and has done so again. He said recently he had become more professional. Boll**ks!
Djoko, Nadal and Fed are in the same position, but they can handle things considerably better, which is why they're the top 3.
Can't wait to read the newspaper reports ...
I'll continue to support Murray but his disasters are affecting me less and less. He's just so frustrating. I'm just grateful that there are other players around who are a constant pleasure to watch.
Finally, well done to Anderson, though, he kept his cool and played a solid match.
A Warm-up ???? No, he is No. 4 in the world FGS...However, I too will continue to support him, but these losses are becoming RIDICULOUSLY frequent!
How can you expect to 'retire' for a month from competitive play and then get a result?.....there are so many excellent players around...you cannot afford to lose your touch!
He hasn't retired any more than the other players have. For god sake get real. OK so we are all expecting Djoko, Nadal, Federer, etc etc etc to go out in their first round match
