    Yes, I will see Djokovic lifting the trophy high above his head right after he has ripped his shirt in another arrogant roar, whilst Nadal fingers his prostate before shaking Djokovic's hand and weeping uncontrollably whilst attempting to put on his humbalito disguise for the speech. Murray will, as usual, bow out in the semis, while Fred will be beaten by a journeyman in the QFs a la 2010.
    Your comedy never fails to amuse.

    I used to use AndyMurray's forums and I recently joined MensTennisForums.

    There are a lot of good topics on there and it's very active but there is alot of trolling on there and hatered towards alot of players, particularly Murray.

    Notable nicknames given to players: Nadull, Clownerer, Jokeovic, Mugray, Clownga, Fixarevic...No guesses for those.

    I was going to reply to Ciarán properly, but it was quicker to just quote this and change it slightly since it shares the EXACT same description

    So you too have experienced AndyMurray's forums and MTF?

    Not too mention some of the horrendous trolling that goes on there. Infact, if you head over there now, you may be lucky enough to catch the thread questioning Andy Murray's decline. :borat:

    The embarrassment.

    Federer and Del Potro looking good, i hope they can dispatch Nadal and Djokovic in the SF.

    As an aside with Federer playing Djokovic and Nadal playing Del Potro there must be a greater chance of an upset given that Federer seems to cope better with Djokovic and Del Potro should have beaten Nadal at Wimbledon.

    Tsonga and Murray.

    You?
    I quite like Jo-Wilfried too. He's very much an explosive player. Murray...*yawn* sorry! He's the ATP's answer to Wozniacki.

    My favourites are Wawrinka, Nishikori & Monfils. On the womens side; Paszek, Chakvetadze, Vaidisova, Sharapova & Pavlyuchenkova. You don't have any WTA favourites at all? :mmm:

    What!? So a pplayer who accounted for half of the AO semi this year is boring?

    Don't care much for women's tennis - now that is boring! Wozniacki, Georges, Ivanovic etc. if I had to choose though.

    Yes, incredibly so. Don't even get me started on Wozniacki . Goerges and Ivanovic are both very talented...off the fh wing. Ivanovic's lack of bh is absolutely hilarious, how she got to #1 and won Roland Garros I will never know. Her game is ridiculously flawed. Sure she hits a few great fh's but that's it really...and the ball toss LOL. I don't know what to expect from Julia's career. Thus far I see a one trick pony, much like Ivanovic. She has the ability to play well but there are a number of fundamental flaws in her game. Wozniacki's fh...LOL! Gosh, you sure like your flops!

    I only like them cause of their looks mind.

    I wouldn't call Andy Murray a flop. (I'm assuming you were referring back to him, no?) He's got to the semi's or better in the last five majors (only 7 people have managed 4 in one year ever), so he's obviously very good. He's also been pretty unlucky in getting his 1st slam. Djokovic, Nadal and Federer all had easy 1st slams so the rest become much easier whereas Murray has always had tough players come finals day.

    He's not a flop, just not good enough and its not just to do with this era either. I would rate roddick, hewitt and safin as better hard court players than he is at their peaks, roddick espicially is better at grass than he is. He's still better than henman though, if thats any consolation.

    Disagree. Him and Djokovic were on par up until a few years ago and very much on the same level. Djokovic got his 1st Grand Slam (and like Federer and Nadal, was lucky with the match he had in the final) and Andy was unlucky enough to come up against Federer Federer Djokovic in his 3 finals. That's horrid luck, particularly when you consider the form they were in.

    To say Murray isn't good enough is stupid. He's proven that he can beat them, and there isn't much Djokovic does better than Murray. Murray has a better serve and can volley better so they are pretty even in terms of their game. Murray just needs to sort his mentality out slightly and he's sorted. He's brought in Lendl, and after only a couple weeks there was already a significant difference which can be seen in the AO Semi-Final.

    Poor Murray, got destroyed once more. Truth be told, he played his best tennis, but Garcia-Lopez proved to be too much for him to handle. Murray threw everything at him but couldn't get the job done. Hopefully Murray can drop out of the top 20 and be replaced by someone with more character and flair, e.g. Mardy Fish.

    Jeez. Don't bring this argument back up again.

    That's precisely why Murray isn't a major winner. It's all in the head. You're right, there's very little between the guys at the top in terms of play. They are all some of the finest people to ever play the game. What separates the very good from the great is what goes in the head. Murray's very good and sorting out your mentality is the hardest thing that can be done, especially now after so many failures.

    menstennisforums. Most people there are nice, but some of the trolling there is simply unbelievable

    Hope Fed can recover from the flu in time for his match against Raonic. Apparently he's off the practice schedule again today.
