What can I say having passionately followed and supported Murray from boy to man another set back!
I now genuinely believe that he is just not good enough nor ever will be, he has always been criticized for his appearance demeanor and presentation and all these added together he his team and dedicated mother fail to change.
He needs to regroup and relaunch him self as a commercially viable professional visually,mentally and verbally to make us Scots proud instead of continually embarrassed.

Take no notice of Boogers -
I take it you're NOT a REAL fan of Andy Murray then??!!
 All TRUE supporters will, I know, get right behind him, at this moment, and definitely NOT turn their backs on him, just because he lost, in his third Gand Slam final, to undoubtedly the BEST player in the world right now!
Also, you obviously DON'T know Andy Murray very well if you think he is just going to "vanish from sight"! What nonsense!!
Andy, this message is for you......as Boris Becker rightly said....you must take the positives out of the fact that you have played a really great tournament, having prepared correctly, to reach the final..... only to fall at the last hurdle! Magnificent stuff from the boy from Dunblane!
C'mon, Andy!
Passionanda X
Take no notice of Boogers - he's one of Andy's biggest fans - he just takes comfort in being negative - all regulars on here are somewhat disappointed but the next tourney we'll all be there supporting him - Andy is a great guy - he's still maturing and we're all hoping the best of Andy Murray is still to come!

Commiserations Andy, but Well Done on reaching the final. Djoko played outstanding tennis and that's how it is.

Will always be a loyal supporter. clap

I don't need him to 'relaunch'himself, I am proud of him as he is.  This is one Scot who doesn't want to be associated with your diatribe.

I think you miss the point he needs help his body language confidence and verbiage is that of a loser not a Scot a time for change or bury our heads in the sand.

It seems to me Andy, that your background team are not up to your needs and failing in there full duty towards you.  They are obviously not motivating/ training you appropriately.  Time for a change here.  I wasn't angry at your dismal performance today, just sorry for you.  However, I appreciate what an acheivement it is for you to play in the grand slam final.  Your team seem to sit in there little box and passively watch, whilst your rival team is animated and excitedly cheering their man on.  I fear that you may soon be seen as Mummy's little boy.  Grow up Andy, sort out your team, show your metal.  Your fans know you are in there somewhere.

I predicted Murray would lose in 3, and unfortunately I was right.  Djokovic is at the top of his game, Murray isn't.
 
It was a disappointing match, but Djokovic played sublime tennis to which Murray had few answers.  However, I'm not down-hearted about it because Murray is still finding his way back from a horror of a year, and recoveries don't take place overnight.

What now seems blindingly clear is that Murray needs to get rid of Corretja and find himself a better coach.  He simply must get out of his comfort zone if he is to take that final step and win a GS.  I've said before that he needs to work more on his game more and cut down on the fitness training, and after today's performance I feel even more strongly that that is the case.   A sports psychologist wouldn't go amiss either - (a) Murray cannot go on expending energy by beating himself up when the slightest thing goes wrong, and (b) something has to done to stop the all too predictable 2nd set lapses.

I haven't lost faith in Murray and will go on supporting him.  However, can we now expect "resignations" from MW of some of those who delight  in putting him down at every opportunity?  Positive criticism is one thing, downright bloody-minded negativity is another.  If being a so-called fan is so difficult, then why stay on here?

Finally, good speeches by both players at the presentation.  Nice to see such humility from Djokovic, and well done to Murray for managing to keep it together this year.

SORRY, can't agree with you. and all these 'doubters'....
I'm with you, Iris!
Andy certainly does NOT need to relaunch himself, he is his 'own man' and to try to change his personality would just be a disaster. It seems that in this sport you just can't win.....Tim Henman was criticised for being "too nice" after all.....so leave Andy alone, he's achieved LOADS already by just being himself!
Always Passionanda!

Aileen, I've only just joined this site and I'm not going anywhere! Why, because whether he wins a slam or not, whether he has a bad day at the office or not, I'll still feel, after Fed, he is the most talented player on the planet and when he's on song eg Toronto Masters this year, he is simply a joy to watch.
But Andy, a  new coach who knows how to win slams would be nice Smile

He played very well in the 3rd set. He was slow to start and lost his grip on the 1st when it was important. His serve was a struggle to hold from the start, although he did serve quite well in the tough spots. Backhand was poor most of the match, which was what saw him through against Ferrer. Picked up again by the 3rd set but still deserted him when it counted.

But now, more than ever I believe he'll show up one day and just win a slam. This wasn't it, but it will happen - sooner rather than later. Djokovic was the winner of this tournament since about last Friday!

I take it you're NOT a REAL fan of Andy Murray then??!!

Certainly not in the truest meaning of the word. I am not a fanatic and believe I can be pragmatic about his chances.

It's not beyond the bounds of possibility. After last years defeat he pretty much vanished for six months and has openly admitted that he lost interest in the game for that period.

Look, it's nice that there are plenty of fanatics here to offer commiseration and hear felt platitudes. In the end though, it's all pretty meaningless. Andy certainly has the tools to win a major, something just seems to be missing psychologically and that is often the hardest problem of all to solve. There's no shame in that - he's already achieved more in his career than most players but I'm pretty sure now that he's never going to take that final step.

Like I said, I'm not going to stop supporting Andy Smile but he does have a few problems he needs to sort out to enable him to allow his undoubted talent to shine through all the time, as I think Boris Becker pointed out.

Well said Aileen. 
Of course Andy has to learn from this and I agree a coach who can take him to the next level is probably one of the lessons to be learned. And from when I joined MW I've been one of those arguing for a sports psychologist.  Interestingly Becker and Henman suggested Nole had been seeing one given how his own attitude -which can be as flakey as Andy's - has improved on court. 
Good to see more of the fans who will support Andy through thick and thin [while still being able to recognise the difference] posting now.  Looking forward to those resignations from MW from some of the others!
