Possibly, but banbrotam, will shoot anyone who seems even half anti-murray. He fights for any little thing, yet he says he respects different views, unless their wumming, yet to see evidence of that

Excellent comment kingraf, you hit the nail on the head. Unfortunately he's not the only one on here being oversensitive about whatever is said about Murray. There are another 3-4 guys like him

Nah, Banbrotam's actually pretty much always spot-on with you WUMs, CP.

Catalan......I'd like to know what you base "His technique is also not very natural putting his joints under a lot of stress" on, and how you are able to say his career will be over by the time he reaches 24/25, only giving him another 2/3 years of pro tennis ?

Such statements are bound to get shot down, so why do you persevere with this type of nonsense.

Hi jubbahey,
please put more attention when reading comments. I never said "his career will be over...", I said "I hope he can have a long career but we SHOULD NOT BE SURPRISED IF it's over at the age of 24-25".

There is a big difference between "It will happen" and "It could happen and in that case I won't be surprised".
I don't see anything outrageous in my comment

Note that 'CP's' technique when asked to support their daft statements is to dwell on a slightly misquoted comment and then act all offended that they are being brought to task

"His technique is also not very natural putting his joints under a lot of stress"

Please explain what you mean, CP, as asked by 'Jubbahey'.

If Murray's Technique which involves a lot of 'soft hands' play and minimal power is poor on his joints, then goodness know how the 'power scamperers' like Nadal, Verdasco, Soderling and Del Potro are going to cope

In other words you've implied that Murray's game puts more stress on his joints than his rivals. This is clear nonsense. However, we eagerly await your Technical Analysis

As I said before, I have no issue with criticism of Murray. 'Lionel.." and 'New Zulu' are two people who, in fairness to them, often make good valid constructive points based on studying his game and looking at his results against others (yes, even NZZ can be constructive)

banbrotam,

watch next time Murray's strokes focusing on his wrists. You will see how he stresses his wrists too much, in a very unnatural way, especially with his forehand topspin. His continuous defensive moonballing is not healthy either, at least IMHO.
Having said that, he's not the only one pushing his body over the limit, that's why they are that many injuries in professional tennis.

laughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaughlaugh

Superb analysis, CP!! Murray's done about two moonballs in the last 6 months

But of course you're not a WUM!!

I look forward to more of your insightfully analysis and think you could become Tennis's answer to that cerebral cricket equivalent, Simon Hughes!!

Except for the occasional brilliant lob

I don't know - you get swine flu and what
happens?

Murray pulls out of the Japan match. Well
good for him I say, seems like a sensible idea
to protect an already suspect wrist from
further injury

Dear BBC staff. Shanghai is not in Japan. That is all...

The one thing we do know from all this is there was an underlying factor to Murray's play in the U.S. open and his early exit, although he never used it as an excuse.
