I know I'm paranoid. But am I paranoid enough?

Mine bloody kills, although they think it might be golfers' elbow. Had an MRI scan the other day. How claustrophobic are they? Never again.

I think Andy might have the beating of Rafa on clay over best of 3 sets...

And can't but feel that he should withdraw from Barcelona to rest the elbow. Think

If you think that is claustrophobic, try getting one for your head !! Smile

I too hope he misses Barcelona, as it takes more than a few days to mend tennis elbow and we don't want any permanent injury that will affect his year of tennis. Hope he make a wise decision.

Quote from Andy in the BBC article:

"When you do have an injury, it's sometimes difficult to concentrate," said Murray afterwards.

"Against someone like him, you need to play every single point, concentrate from every single point to the last. You can't just throw games, hope to hang onto your serve. You need to play every single point to put pressure on him."

"Yesterday at the beginning of the second set I felt something, but I managed to play through it," Murray added.

"This morning I was hitting, warming up fine. I went to hit some serves; I couldn't serve."

"I thought it was a good match, but I think I can play better," said Murray. "It's good to know you're able to play at a similar level to what he does on the clay. To win against him, you need to be able to do that for three-and-a-half hours, four hours.

"The matches that he's lost on clay the last few years have been normally long ones. He's the best player in the world for a reason."

"Certainly I'll have an MRI scan, maybe tomorrow," said the Scot. "You sometimes get like a bit of bone basically that has fallen off.

"It sounds worse than it is, but it's basically floating around in the joint, so every time I bend it, I get of a lot of, like, clicking. It just feels really bruised because I obviously had a couple of injections. There's blood and stuff going in there.

"It was good because I managed to play, but I would have liked to have finished the match a bit better."

Thanks for that Allan.  Sounds like a pretty sober assessment. And I like the 'I think I can play better' ie not as a negative assessment of today but because it shows he wants to play better still. These are the kind of defeats, which have galvanised Andy in the past to improve his game further.

Andys website saying "slight concern over the elbow" but Andy is going to travel to Barcelona.

Can someone find me David Haye, I want to give him a big kiss. He has obviously had a great effect on our Andys mindset, he really looked like he knew he could win today yet 3 weeks ago he couldnt even take a set off qualifiers. 

Great day at the office Andy looking forward to your next tournament.

An injured Andy Murray today went down 6-4 2-6 6-1 against world number one Rafael Nadal in a pulsating Monte Carlo Rolex Masters semi-final.

With the deciding set looming, Nadal looked like he'd been stung by one of the many jellyfish that infest the nearby Larvotto Beach. But the game was up and the ATP trainer was on, attempting to massage new life into Murray's inhibiting joint.

Such a clever and very witty report Nigel ...

 lol on the jellyfish!!

Isn't it awkward watching tennis with non-tennis fans, when they're making inane comments, like when the player's waiting to serve?

Nigel, your report was succint yet expansive. Well stated. You and I almost got the result correct. A near miss!

Incidentally, I just have the deep feeling that if Andy had played against Djokovic in the AO the way he played today, I believe that AM's search for that elusive Slam would now be history. Only supposition.

Andy took the fight to Nadal on the red dirt the way nobody else has dared to do for a long time. I really was proud of Andrew and to be a newish member of MW.

Pity about his injury, but as a result I suspect that he might withdraw from Barcelona. However, after Barca which finishes on 24 April, he is not due to perform until Madrid Masters on 1 May. Enough time to recover from his injury. I trust that Andy will be sensible about playing or not
