re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It's not an excuse, it's an observation. Murray's gonna be more physically tired after going 5 sets with Federer on Friday then what Djokovic was from 90 minutes on Thursday. The Wawrinka match was 7 days ago, he's well recovered from that. Djokovic was better than Murray over 4 sets. I even said that. Murray looked physically spent come the end of the match though which is no surprise after the Semi.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Well done Nole.

Managed to catch the 2nd set only, where it seemed to be quite even. Djokovic must have stepped it up in the final 2 sets.

Roll on Roland Garros!

BTW, What was your favourite match(es) of the tournament?

For me, Tsonga vs Federer.

No, it's an excuse. Murray had 2 days to recover after a very lean amount of time on court during the 2 weeks, suggesting he'd be fresher for the cause. Djokovic recovered from the Wawrinka match to win his next game rather comfortably.

It's not like it's never happened before. As previously posted, Djokovic went nearly 5 hours against Murray in the semi, then backed it up to go 6 hours against Raffa, arguably the fittest player ever. Murray was not good enough when push came to shove. Fatigue or whatever excuse people are throwing around is rather insulting to the quality of Djokovic's win.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

Djokovic will have been fresher than Murray however in a four set match like this, I don't think it will have had a baring on the outcome. I think Murray's issues with his feet (which looked grim) would have caused more of an issue. But either way, Djokovic would have won I think, he just played better. As Murray said before the match, the winner depends on who plays better on the day and Djokovic played better on the day.

Favourite match of the tournament was Djokovic vs. Wawrinka...it was amazing.

Marking for: John Morrison, Randy Orton, CM Punk, Sheamus, Dolph Ziggler, Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

This tournament was still a relative success for Murray, as he scored his first Grand Slam victory over Federer. It was always coming, but it's good to have got it out the way.

Djokovic definitely ahead of Murray right now, and has been for some time, but the gap has closed considerably and I think Djok is peaking right now, while I feel Murray can keep improving.

Djok will win some, Murray will win some. Looking forward to seeing their rivalry unfold.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

It'd be an excuse if I said that was why Murray lost. I even said Djokovic won because he was better than Murray today.

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

I always feel that Nole-Murray matches are always on Djokovic's racket. Thats why Djokovic seems to be the more agressive of the 2.

I think Djokovic will win most matches between them tbh

re: Tennis Discussion Thread

The Stats tell me otherwise. .

Djokovic had more winners and more net approaches than Murray

I only watched the 2nd set, but from what i saw, Djokovic was trying to be aggressive, but was making too many UE's.

Murray seems to be his most aggressive against Federer i've noticed

Looked low on steam after the 2nd set. Difference in Semi's made a difference. Djokovic was too good regardless though. No shame in hanging with Djokovic for the most part of a slam final after going 5 sets with Federer.
What are you talking about? I meant he's now lost in 5 grand slam finals and only won one.
