A lot of my mates don't like Murray because of his attitude towards England during Wimbledon when we played Paraguay in the 2006 World Cup, wearing a Paraguay shirt on to court. Personally I've come round to him, mainly because he's British and you should support them but a lot of people don't like his attitude which I can understand.
I'd love to see him win Wimbledon or any Slam but I just don't think he's up to it or on the same level as Djokovic. Every final he's played he's been blown away and I don't see that changing anytime soon unfortunately.
I agree that he was way better in 2006.
By saying that he is in the best shape in years I am comparing him to 2008/09, when he was declining but still was a great player. I doubt we will ever see Baghdatis 2006/07 again, but never ride him off.
Baghdatitis usually produces one brilliant set of tennis and then fades away
Yeah that pretty much sums up his last few years.
He is capable of the impossible, but mentally fragile at times which restricts him a lot. Other than than he has the game but not the mind for it. He has these brain fades in his matches all the time. He has a habit of using drops shots which 7/10 fall awfully short. Hoping he can have some success this year but it will be hard.
He is 27 years old now and he had the chance to be a top 5 player but blew it. At one stage in 2006 he was number 8 in the world and flying. He is still pretty high in the ranking (42 in the world) but I still think he can crack the top 20 if he puts his mind at ease and if he doesn't think too much when playing. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for him to beat Murray. If he beats Murray it will boost his morale and who knows what can happen after that. Though I'm not that confident of a victory, it will definitely be hard, especially with the pro-murray crowd.
That was surprising. I am glad that Federer won and came back from 2 sets down. This year, the wimbledon is quite upredictable. There have been some upsets. I am liking it so far. So far it seems that Djokovic will probably win but anything can happen.
