Stan dismantles Murray

By for MurraysWorld.com on
Andy Murray crashed out of the Monte Carlo Masters after being thrashed 6-1, 6-2 by Stanislas Wawrinka. The Scot surrendered the match, and his world number 2 ranking, in just under an hour.

Wawrinka played an excellent match, but his opponent barely put up a fight. From 1-0, 40-30 up Murray's game imploded. The Scot hit an astonishing 14 unforced errors to 2 winners in the first set alone.

Murray will return in Madrid.

They said he had to win today to stay No. 2, so I suppose that's right.  Frown

Ah well, disappointing not to be seeing him any more this week, but we’ll bare up, as will Andy.  We all know by now that you can’t win them all.  I’m sure Andy will have it in gear for the next tournament.  Onward & Upward.   cmonandy

Yep, he came till the QF last year, so will be losing points.

He has only lost 90 points so shoud be able to make that up at Madrid as he has nothing to defend.  I feel sure that he is not 100% but, of course, will not make an excuse.

Why would he not be 100%? He had an easy match yesterday and several weeks of rest before that..!

Feeling off can hit you whether you have had a rest or a easy time the day before.

Unless you're inside his head, you won't know, Phil.  But there are lots of things that can affect a person - physically and mentally.  Andy strikes me as pretty sensitive - so who knows?

Not that it's of huge importance, but he also has 45 to defend in Barcelona where he got to the QF last year before going out to Raonic.

I hope it's got nothing to do with Ross ...

Never thought of that.  Thing is, Aileen - you just don't know what's going on behind the scenes.  Maybe nothing at all - maybe he did just play shite.  But it pays to keep an open mind.

Watched the match, it seemed he decided after about 3 games that he wasnt going to win...pretty embarrassing from a grand slam champion...but we'v been here before and hes turned things around.

Would hint at illness - or something not right.

90 - Barcelona is a 500.

Realistically, the situation with Andy is that despite all his protestations and practising on the stuff, clay court tennis is just not for him.

Sad that he lost so badly and that he's no longer number 2, but perhaps he has now attained his final level of competence, together with a subconscious realisation that he will never reach number 1.

Expected a tough match but not such a comprehensive doing !  Back to the drawing board Andy
