Ivan Ljubicic laid it on the line. He said that Murray's back was in spasm and that he'd had that himself. He said Murray did the right thing in playing on, because the pain would subside, which it did halfway through the second set.
Steve Bywaters, why do you choose to side with the idiots who believe he was faking? Why would he fake? Do you think he doesn't believe he's capable of beating Jarrko Nieminen, a journeyman Finn ranked barely inside the top 50?
Sadly, judging by the comments on forums and in the online media, this incident has become the final nail in the coffin of Murray's relationship with the uber-moronic British public and I really can't see a way back now. Not that that matters one jot.
Well I didnt until I saw this
that alone convinced me once and for all he has no back injury, he cant have. That presser was a crock of ****. .
I dont really care so long as he wins but what gets me is the hypocrisy of the rest of you. He's lying and he's not in the least bit injured and that video proves it! ur right about it being the finish of him PR wise with the British public he's detested/held in utter contempt lol.
Good luck to him anyway in this tournament but it surprised me,his blatant lying, is all.
