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

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?
