Sorry..typographical error...yound buck should have been young buck!  Murray is the future...he is hungry and ripe for success.  He will win many grand slams like Lendl....perhaps eight or more...he will ruin Nadal's chance of overtaking old man Federer's grand slam numbers.  Djoker will win but Murray has more talent and justs needs to get that first one.
  Odd that you should suggest Murray might win 8 slams or more. I had a premonition recently of Andy with 9 "gold medals"  and wondered if it meant an Olympic medal and 8 slams.  Then again, maybe it was nothing - I don't claim second sight - but I also felt very strongly before the Wimbledon Final that it would all end in tears.

Just read Boris Johnson said he 'blubbed like Andy Murray' during the Olympic ceremony.  Oh dear I hope Andy's tears aren't going to be wheeled out everytime someone has a good cry.
He may have set a precedent - but maybe that's not a bad thing if men realise it's OK to cry in public.  Stuff the stiff British upper-lip, men have emotions same as women!

Incidentally I remember when Fed won Wimbledon for the first time (his first Slam) he blubbed and got criticised for it because it was "unmanly", nine years later Andy does it and gets sympathy!  Weird.  Maybe us Brits can empathise more with losers!

Actually, in a way it is good he lost....at least now he can focus on the singles completely and give his full concentration to just one format of the game..I have always felt that it is really difficult to do well in both singles and doubles....but dont worry, even I am sad for their early loss....Good luck Andy for your opening match Wawrinka......FINGERS CROSSED!!!!

I think that could be regarded as an accolade for Andy. Smile

I do think they like Andy, really except for Ak400 maybe. Though BigNose "claims" he's a bigger fan of Andy than I (yeah right), he does have this wicked way of highlighting Andy's shortcomings most of the times while never failing to mention how big a tennis god Federer is. He’s a blind worshiper of Fedrer but then again, most of them are.

Federer trolls are so adorable. They almost always pretend to be Murray fans.

At the end of the day, only those in the know will know.
Good luck to them.

I really felt it was deliberate on Mirka's part. Have seen some of my friends doing it who I thought got married a bit too early in the first place. In fact, in our culture women are encouraged to have babies as soon as they get married. This is to basically confirm the relationship because let's face it, Federer could have easily dumped Mirka at any point of his career and dated someone else and he had that option available and no woman would feel comfortable being in that situation especially if they had already invested a lot by that time. And look how soon they got married after she got pregnant and they’d been dating for so long and nothing was happening. I, in fact, told some of my friends that Federer was eventually going to dump her once he got all his wishes, but clearly, I underestimated Mirka. lol
Yes, well - until the last 20 years or so, it wasn't exactly unknown that some women conveniently forgot to use contraceptives (usually the pill) in the hope of becoming pregnant and thereby encouraging hesitant but long-term boyfriends to finally get round to marrying them!  The danger of doing this, of course, was that it could seriously back-fire and have the love of their life vanishing into the sunset leaving the woman to bring up the child on her own - and believe me, that did happen.  Either these men weren't really that much in love in the first place, or they felt they weren't quite ready for marriage and taking on the huge responsibility of parenthood.   In today's society illegitimacy has no stigma attached to it (thank goodness), so marriage has become a bit irrelevant.  That no longer troubles me so long as the child/children are brought up in a loving, caring environment - something which marriage certainly doesn't guarantee.

On the other hand I know of two instances where the woman simply forgot to take the pill for just one night, and fell pregnant.  The first ended in abortion, after much soul-searching, because the woman didn't want to marry the father and was much more interested in pursuing a high-flying career than bringing up an unwanted child,  and the second rather tragically when the unplanned for baby was found to have Down's Syndrome, and also the couple already had three children and had decided that that was enough, although fortunately he did become a much-loved member of the family.

As much as I dislike them , I seriously doubt they " tied the knot " because of the twins.

They look as if they really love each other , and you have to admit , those little girls are so adorable.
Given the almost panicky haste with which the wedding was arranged, I'm pretty sure that the pregnancy was the catalyst, possibly for religious or moral reasons, or maybe it just gave Roger the nudge he needed.   I'd love to have been a fly on the wall though when Mirka broke the news! lol

Deliberately on her part, I wonder - or was the expected really unexpected?  Whatever, I think Federer is being extremely inconsiderate these days, and the poor woman probably feels obliged to turn up and watch his matches, otherwise tongues might waggle.  My feeling is, now that the twins are 3, that she probably wants another child.  If he isn't careful he might find himself facing a marital break-up, and no amount of trophies are a substitute for that.

I believe the arrangement was already made because of the H2H Federer had against Roddick at that time so the Slam was pretty much given. It was least expected that Roddick would actually go and threaten Federer in such a massive way. It was indeed very presumptuous of them no doubt, but given that they had already made the plan, they had no other choice but stick to it.

What truly beats me though is that Federer actually agreed to wear that jacket. He could have absolutely said no to this. No way in hell Sampras would have gone with such an obnoxious idea. This very much confirms the state of mind Federer has.

I felt absolutely gutted for Roddick after that match.  I yelled myself hoarse for him, and in the end he was oh so close.

I can't imagine ANY other player, past or present, who would have worn a jacket like that.  Fed's ego is so massive I wonder how he can live with himself.

I am convinced she wants Federer to retire because I have not noticed all this worrying before but after the twins and they marriage, and especially after Federer broke Sampras' record, the dynamic of this relationship has changed. Federer, in fact, admitted that Mirka doesn't enjoy the matches anymore as she finds them very stressful. This is a message she's sending out to Federer in a roundabout way methinks. Women no matter how proud they are of their husbands deeds eventually would like the husbands to pay more attention to their family. Federer is clearly obsessed with tennis and it probably means more to him than his own family to some extent. Sampras retired first and then got married. Mirka, on the other hand, got pregnant with twins before marriage. They in fact had to tie the knot because of the twins.

I know she does.  Maybe thinks it time her old man retired!
