How many sets did cool calm Berdych win?
Feels like you're trying to hard to nitpick. He isn't breaking any rules or acting immorally and if it makes him play better then fine. Like I said I'd rather see him get fired up about losing a point and show some passion. It does annoy me how often he grabs a body part like he's injured when loses points though when it's obvious there's no serious injury there to clutch at.

It doesn't matter if you're winning or losing, when you make a silly error, a true born winner will be angry, because he is striving for perfection. That is the difference between the great players and the good players. Murray is a great player. Berdych is a good player.
Djokovic has a moan too. Look where he is. At the top.
Pete Sampras was a great player. Much, Much more succesfull than Murray will ever be. He rarely went off on one after losing a point. He had a winenrs mentality, but he never swore at the top of his voice after making 1 error.
Bjorn Borg, the same. Many great players didn't shout out at the top of their voice after making an error.
So you don't have to shout and get all emotional to be a great player. You can have a winning mentality without moaning when 1 little thing doesn't go your way. So that theory is wrong. And Djokovic does moan. But not at the smallest things (1 error) like Murray does.
Like i said. I'm fine with him letting anger out at the appropriate times. But when he's winning, and in control, there is no need to swear at the top of his voice. I don't like his attitude, and so don't many others. You may like it, fair enough. Doesn't concern me one bit. We'll have to agree to disagree here. You lot support Murray. I don't, so therefore we'll see things differently.
Back to tennis though. What did you think of the actual match of tennis?
Oh, and ALLEZ JO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tsonga winning this group would just be awesome. Especially if he beats all 3 opponents along the way. (Probs not going to happen. But i sure hope so)
I'm pulling for a Del Po vs Tsonga final. That would be awesome!!!
