You may well be right about Federer, he is certainly in decline. The problem you have here Bolt, as i know you aren't Murray's biggest fan, that Murray may well be the best player in the world on hardcourts at the moment. 2 of the 4 slams are on hardcourts, you may be in for some misery in the next few years.

Remember Murray didn't have to win this game, but he did all the same.

But he's on for another $1m bonus for winning them all, so there was plenty of incentive to win.

Yeah i understand that and i am sure $1mill is going to be pretty sweet for him. Murray is going to win enough this year and in future years for 1m to be pretty much irrelevant. Already made 3 mill this year from prizes, god know how much he gets paid in endorsements.

It was only a couple of years ago he had to get the LTA to get Gilbert as a coach because he couldn't afford it, I doubt he's quite at the stage where a million doesn't mean much.  Plus, beating Federer is a bonus, bad back or no bad back.

he is buzzing at the moment(unfortunately) Roll Eyes

Really it's not that he's scottish(no really) i just cant stand the modern day sportsman, bland, uninformed, inarticulate worried only about making sure that his PR agent to the side of the camera is appeased with another........."erm yeah basically i'm happy with the way it went and at the end of the day i can just do my best" etc, khan, hamilton and how many of the footballers you can mention are the same, people like merson and gazza just dont happen anymore, it's not allowed to have a personality on modern day sport, well pleased when khan got flattened, jumping around when it looked like hamilton had mangled it(sigh) tough times ahead for real sports fans.

what they dont get is if you actually do what you want without being overly conscious of the media and what you might be doing may not typify what is seen as being an acceptable way of being a modern day role model in sports the media will give you a bit of leeway, look at hatton, he goes out stuffs his face and gets mashed, the media have learned he's got a huge fan base and the hatton publicity machine dont really care when they picture him coming out of a club, it's just what he does, the media dont get much of a reaction and it's not so much of a story, these boys coming up today are seeing the media run the world and are shit scared to have a personality, makes sport dull!

I think you're making a mistake assuming that they're like that because of media training - in the vast majority of cases I think it's just what they're really like - they really are that dull.

wtf bolt. I recommend the WWE, they'll give you a show, cut a good promo.

Seriously, who gives a toss about post match interviews.

Murray does his shit on the court ffs. Exciting tennis and an animated personality (that's right, I said the p word) that gives an open window into his stuggles with the mental side of the game.

He's good to watch play tennis. His hypothetical success, or lack thereof, as a guest at your fantasy dinner party doesn't make him a luddy.



p.s. I think you want to shag Gazza.

I agree with this, the boys got talent, i thought he seemed to be an also ran a couple of years ago and was gonna have excuse after excuse, he didnt seem to have the temprement for this level but he's doing the bussiness now.

I cant help seeing a bloke like that on soccer am and when being asked: "what is maria sharapova like in real life, she must be amazing" replying(with a nervous look on his face):"erm yeah shes alright" without thinking what an absoloute tosser he is!!!!!!

with regards to gazza, i would be honoured Grin

I don't really think Murray GAF about what people think about him, that's certainly the impression he gives off when he's being interviewed by some excitable twat from Sky.

davydenko at 5-1 to win the whole thing is a great bet IMO. He faces a tired murray tomo who has come out and said beating Federer was like winning the tournie. Davydenko may be a little unpredictable but was outstanding yesterday. The winner of the murray davydenko match will probably face a slightly off form djokovic in the final and he has lost that killer edge in the last few big finals he has played.
