Murray - What Next?

by Biscuits (U7774523) 15 May 2007
comment on the article

OK so his wrist "popped". Does anyone who actually knows about these things have any opinions on how serious that's going to be, whether he'll be straight ruled out for Roland Garros, and indeed whether he'll be turning out on his home turf in a month?

On another note, the rain of expletives that he directed at Gilbert before conceding would indicate that all is not well there either. Will they kiss and make up?

Yes I am afraid to say at times in his career he was.
He admitted some time ago that he got through some of his matches in a complete haze. He was addicted to painkillers

He injured his wrist in the 3rd round of Wimbledon 1996. At the time he was ranked 4th in the world, had just won Queens (beating Edberg in the final) and had won the Aussie Open earlier in the year. Pretty good going if he'd been laying off the fitness training...

murray gets injured! These things happen. I think in the short time he was actually playing he proved once and for all he has a clay court game. The passion he shows on court is the sign of a true winner.That's the difference between Celts and Saxons.

Was my comment complained about? Well I honestly think that this young lad is being hyped up, much as some of the previous UK tennis players and it will turn out to be nothing. We have a good track record of building people up, only to...In addition, he just simply doesn't have the talent (or physique)to beat the likes of Federer and Nadal. Was my comment complained about (if it was) because as an Englishman I cannot identify with or support the Scots?

funnyjimbo .. as an englishman you should get behind anyone from the uk rooney is irish , owen is welsh , carrick is scottish . most of your cricket team is foreign. you only have one english tennis player , your premiership teams dont belong to you anymore.. the list is endless... at least aussie sport is 100% pure australian power. and were pretty darn good at it .

Hmm running, jumping and throwing, daytime soap operas and just generally being hot. It starts well, but tails off rather rapidly in the "national achievement" stakes dontcha think jimmy?

Go on, admit it, you're secretly jealous of a country that can give its annual sports personality award to a posho on a horse.

Oh yeah and what about Keppler Wessels then eh? eh? 100% Aussie? I think not.

Anyhoo the only true Aussie sporting icon was Cathy Freeman, the rest are just the offspring of discarded celts. devil
