Typical Fed!  I'm sure Andy played in order not to disappoint all the fans who had bought tickets.  He said that he didn't know how it would feel until he tested it under match conditions.

Kinda late comment here but I haven't been on MW for over two weeks.  I can't see how Andy could get such a bad groin injury playing road tennis.  Also I hadn't realised he'd played Ferrer against medical advice.  That was pretty stupid, knowing he was so unfit he'd probably lose the match - and if he did win what were his chances of winning, or even playing, his next one?  He should have pulled out from the start, especially with the new season not so far away.  But again, he's damned if he does and damned if he doesn't.

One thing that does concern me is that Andy still plays football occasionally.  Now if you want to pick up a groin strain or leg injury, that's just the right sport for it!  Mind you, Fed goes to the other extreme.  In a recent interview he said the only other sport he'll play is table tennis for fear of hurting himself!

Come on people! Andy could slip walking the dogs and injure himself he still has to live his life we cannot wrap him in cotton wool.  If and it is only if he injured himself having fun with David Haye etc thats life no one died its disappointing and frustrating if the Fed steals the no 3 spot back but Andy has to have a life and will be a better player if he does.

I was at the O2 yesterday yelling at the top of my voice for Mardy but unfortunately it didnt work. I have to say though didnt think the Fed played that well and he looked bored his body language was appalling and frankly disrespectful to both Mardy and us Fans (thats tennis fans not Fed fans)

Not surprised about the comments Nadal has made this morning about loss of passion for the game it was obvious last night. Not to take anything away from Jo-Wilfred who played great and was fantastically entertaining.

Watched the Fed/Nadal match last night with the sound turned off.  Couldn't take all the fawning over Fed it really was sickening stuff.  I just wish the TV companies would employ commentators who actually enjoy the tennis they watch and not a bunch of over the hill 'wannabes' who are not fit to tie Andy's shoelaces.  Andy has always tried to play through his injuries which is not always a sensible thing to do but did it because he didn't want to let people down therefore for idiots and hasbeens like Becker and Croft to talk of Doctors reports etc. is not only extremely disrepectful it is grossly insulting to both Andy and his team.  We should ask them to elaborate on their comments or apologise publicly. 
Hopefully Andy will retain his number 3 spot which was one of his goals for this year and have a good break away from tennis and the pressures it brings.  I am really looking forward to 2012 and in particular the AO as I have said before this is the one Andy will win.
Quite so, how dare they even think that Andy would lie and pull out of something so important!! they make me sick, i dont ever hear them question Djoko, he has his shoulder strapped does that mean he has an injury? has a Doctor said so !!!, if thats the case all of the tennis players should have to prove they have genuine injuries , then precent them to the sky commentators!!!  its a very good idea to watch with the sound down !!

Andy has said he picked up the injury during training - why do some of you feel you have to question that?  Echoes of Becker and Croft here!

Did Andy actually say that's when he hurt himself or are some people just assuming that's when it happened? 'Coz he sure didn't look hurt to me at the end of that video! I doubt he spent the whole day there, so he may well have done some training that day too!! However........if that is when it happened.........so what? Tennis is his career....his job!  He has to have a life outside of that too! Those of you who think he shouldn't do anything but play tennis or train, are being incredibly selfish! I suggest you 'get a life' yourselves!
Andy said he got the injury during practise not during the road tennis. He has said that quite a few times, also he disobeyed the doctor by playing against Ferrer.

clap Mark, thanks for giving us a laugh on a miserable November evening. It cheered me up.

I just love Andys smile and laughter, it's boyish and genuine.
Thanks Mark, I too love Andy's smile and the different faces he makes.  But somehow, I don't think this ad did damage to his groin.  It wasn't that strenuous..

Hindsight is such a wonderful thing Very Happy

Take no notice Andy - you live your life your way.  I'm happy to be able to share your highs (which there will be many more) and lows (which I hope are few and far between).

One thing that will be sorely missed this year- the incredible match that you nearly always get when Andy plays Nadal - real tennis in the raw and so exciting.l

Well said.  Why should Andy be made to justify his actions?  Remember the time he played three matches at the Davis Cup for John Lloyd who has since vilified Andy in the press, what happened after that he missed seven weeks of the season.  I am glad he made the decision to quit and protect his interests for next year.  Ignore them Andy continue doing your own thing hey it has worked just fine.

Exactly what was he thinking of making a decision and not consulting the Sky Comms!!! They know everything don't they?   The guy is 24 he has commitments which he sticks to - terrible !!!!   What a way to behave.   Come on Andy rest up get better and stick it right back up everyone next year.  2012 it's going to be your year "Cometh the hour, Cometh the man". It's Murray Time.............

I suppose Andy Murray must be to blame if this injury did happen at the Road Tennis.  You'd
think he would be able to see into the future and forecast what was going to happen.    The
least he should have done was to consult a fortune teller before making a move.    Very
neglectful - he's actually living his life.

Sacrificed #3 spot for money you mean?
The possibility of injury probably didn't go through his mind - Road Tennis looks much safer than tennis but the new movements to the body is what's dangerous.

That good ole Brit Rudeski is a complete idiot in fact most of the sky comms are great at jumping on the Murray Band Wagon when things are going freest but when he loses a match then they comedown on him like a ton of bricks.  Do they dare to question the fitness of other player NO so why do they think it is appropriate to do it to Murray.  And this thing with the sponsorship if and it is a big IF he did it at the sponsors event then these things happen there us no way that he would have knowingly taken on anything that would have caused injury a groin strain could have happened anywhere practice court or gym.  I am sure that the most gutted out of all of us is Andy himself.  He is doing the sensible thing and protecting himself for 2012 - it is going to be Andy's year and I for one cannot wait to see the doubters including Rudeski and Croft eat every single one of their words.

Yeah! Funny ain't it. Makes more money on Brand hawking than playing tennis. Why worry?

This event happened last Monday, interestingly the same day Murray injured himself.
