Murray a break up in the first :-D
Is it on telly?
I'm missing football for this.
is Murray being amazing or is Nadal being crap?
but seems like the former to me.
is playing brilliantly. Nadal has never been that great on hard courts but Murray looks a world beater at the moment.
Nadal is at his best on hard courts! He's from spain! Murray has been amazing, awesome stuff :)
win the 2nd set now.
Come on Rafa!
First England thrash South Africa, now this........maybe even the footballers can snatch a draw in Barcelona?
and really just lost it with unforced errors and his inability to close out a point. Obviously he got thrashed at Wimbledon, but I think people are overestimating the quality difference between the two players.
I hope he dies painfully. Little git. At least Tim Henman didn't act like a complete wanker on court, and didn't shout and scream because he didn't feel the need to prove he had bollocks.
more or less for those reasons.
He's got no grace or manners, and is basically an arrogant 'american style' sportsman.
He should have been told that you don't play tennis like that. Tennis is about discipline and grace, not male posturing.
"He's got no grace or manners, and is basically an arrogant 'american style' sportsman."
Mm, he gets angry when he loses. A handful aside, most people with the drive to reach the top of their sport do. I wish more of our sportspeople had his attitude.
loser yes, defaming tennis as a sport no
i dont really like him and think he is a bit of a bell, but i prefer him to Henman. He was offensive in his bland unoffesiveness
the cutting wit. the on court satire. all so subliminal.
is when the crowd shout 'C'mon Tim!' whenever Murray or someone is playing at Wimbledon
Well said that man
He has had loads of break points already so he can certainly expect to get another a chance of he keeps playing well.
some of his forehands have been brutal. I think Tropical Storm Hannah has arrived in New York though.
after letting his intensity slip in the third - this rain is here to stay...
is it because he has a winning mentality and goes to win matches rather than pussy foot about like Henman?
Idiots, led by idiots in the media, dislike Murray because he is brash, arrogant, loud and gruff, which is exactly what a sportsperson should be.
and tbh i've not seen huge unjustified moments of arrogance from a 21 year old who will be at least 4th in the world come Monday.
the rain doesn't look to be getting any better. Stupid stupid Americans and their stupid stupid super saturday
