Andy due back for Queens Club :rock:

Tennis has been dull as shit without him. I hope his hip holds out.

Don’t expect him to do much at Wimbledon but it will be great to see him back on court.

Who'd have thought Nadal's body would outlast the other 3

Other 3? Murray, Djokovic and ? Not sure if you can include Federer, I don't think it's his body he is preserving, just his unwillingness to compete on a surface that takes more out of a player, energy wise, than the others (and one that he knows he cannot compete with Nadal at). At 37, it seems a sensible approach that is working well for him.

Buzzo 19-06-18 09:17 AM

Andy Murray back on court today after almost 12 months, playing an inform Kyrgios. I don’t think he will win, but it is great to have him back.

Shaggy 19-06-18 10:50 AM

Yeah I can't see him winning either. Be interesting to see how he goes.

Buzzo 19-06-18 11:43 AM

Whatever happens today, I hope this is a step towards him competing at the top level. Lots of people I speak to at Tennis reckon he is stuffed and that he will never compete again at his previous levels given the type of injury he suffered. Even Andy is talking about mixing it up and playing more serve volley. He might get away with Serve Volkey at Wimbledon, but I can’t see anyone winning a Slam with serve volkey only.

There will be a chasm in British sport without him, and I am not ready to give up just yet.

Shaggy 19-06-18 12:05 PM

It's shit isn't it :sigh:

:handshake: I canít think about it, itís too upsetting. :haha:

He is close to the top, of not right at the pinnacle of my all time favourite sporting heroís.

He has had to fight so hard for everything he has won and just deserves so much more.

He is an inspiration.

Buzzo 19-06-18 04:09 PM

Solid deuce win on his first service game for Andy. He is moving well so far.

Kyrgios is serving huge. 1-1.

Buzzo 19-06-18 04:38 PM

Good match - Murray doing much better than I imagined so far. Looks really sharp, and fit.

Usual box of tricks from Kyrgios. If he ever sorts it out in his head he is almost unplayable.

Buzzo 19-06-18 04:39 PM

4-2 Murray breaks.

Kyrgios stopped hitting second serves bizarrely and ended up double faulting. He is a maniac :haha:

RichC 19-06-18 04:40 PM

His attitude is fucking appalling

What is he doing?

He was playing really well? I don't understand it at all. Murray is the consummate pro, just ignoring it all and grinding out the games.

I'm not buying that he is injured.

Buzzo 19-06-18 04:46 PM

First set to Andy :rock:

Who knows what is going on with Kyrgios? I thought he was playing really well - he has just switched off. Which is doing Murrays performance a disservice... Some of the returns from Andy are incredible.

Dunno.

He does it again and again. :haha:

Of course he isn't injured, he just doesn't give a fuck! :D

But he was giving a fuck, ish... His serves are 130+mph when in. He just has some bizarre battles in his mind. He didn't like the crowd 'ooohing' him smack a ball into the net, and lost his way.

He has also played 3 'tweeners' and put one smash away with a pirouette.

Kyrgios breaks.

Buzzo 19-06-18 05:18 PM

I am genuinely amazed at how well Andy is playing after a year out.

He looks good to go. Returning well. Running well. Winning rally's. He got to the semi final of Wimbledon last year on one leg so anything is possible.

Will be interesting to see how he recovers if he wins. 4-4 in the second set.

Buzzo 19-06-18 05:40 PM

1 set all.

Decent match Kyrgios takes the second in a TB.

Buzzo 19-06-18 06:53 PM

Kyrgios wins in three.

Long match Murray looked fucked by the end. Kyrgios as enigmatic as ever.

Shaggy 25-06-18 06:53 PM

What a win for Murray, straight sets over Wawrinka.

:rock:

Forgot that was on. Thats a good result, though Wawrinka is not back to his best, he has been back on court longer than Murray.

He plays Kyle Edmund now doesn't he? That could be very interesting.

Lecter 27-06-18 10:58 AM

Saw this the other night on the telly

Great watch


Shaggy 27-06-18 06:53 PM

Murray getting a bit of a tonking from Edmund ffs. Edmund serving for the match.

Shaggy 27-06-18 06:57 PM

Murray loses in straight sets. He can't be ready for Wimbledon.

Buzzo 27-06-18 07:03 PM

Watched most of it on Amazon Prime.

Yeah, pretty dominant from Edmund, his forehand was huge. Another good run out for Murray, but he doesn't have any real match sharpness and has lost some of his court smarts.

I reckon he should skip Wimbledon.

Shaggy 01-07-18 04:55 PM

Murray out of Wimbledon. Disappointing but the right choice I reckon.

Too right. If he's not in shape to win it just competing isn't enough.

:handshake:

If he isnt going to be competitive then there is no point.

Got to nurse his way back to the top. Interesting though as all the noises over the last 48 hours were that he was going to play.

Buzzo 11-07-18 05:22 PM

Big match going on on court one today.

Federer v Anderson

11-11 in the 5th.

Massive serving.

Buzzo 11-07-18 05:24 PM

Anderson breaks.

Serving to put Roger out of Wimbledon.

Interestingly, just heard, Federer having a dispute with Nike over the RF logo is not wearing Nike kit.

Buzzo 11-07-18 05:28 PM

Anderson wins. Coming back from 2 sets down.

Amazing performance.

RichC 11-07-18 07:29 PM

Got to fancy Djokovic for the title now

Buzzo 11-07-18 07:58 PM

Nadal and Delpo gone to 5 sets.

Novak looked good against Nishikori.

Buzzo 12-07-18 07:28 PM

Amazing from Serena.

The top ten all folded in the very knowledge she was back in the draw.

Only her 4th tournament back a year after childbirth and she is back in the Wimbledon final.

:respect:

She is incredible.

Daniel 7 12-07-18 07:42 PM

I haven't watched a single tennis match this year, and that has everything to do with Andy Murray not being involved. I just don't find even watching his direct rivals as engaging without him being there

Buzzo 12-07-18 07:52 PM

I’ve hardly watched any for the same reason, and a bit from watching the World Cup.

Andy Murray makes it way more interesting, none of the others offer the same level of emotion and seem almost robotic in comparison. He was commentating in Delpo v Rafa yesterday though and the boys I saw he did offer a fascinating insight into top level matchplay.

British tennis is fucked when he retires. I just hope that is 4 or 5 years away.

Might not just be British tennis but tennis as a whole. Never going to get another set of Djokovic, Fed, Murray, Nadal again

Read today noone born in the 90's has won a grand slam yet :jaw:

who is coming through after this golden generation?

Buzzo 13-07-18 05:53 PM

^ yeah, that’s totally true.

Epic semi final on right now Big serving Isner v Anderson 8-8 in the 5th. 5 hours on court so far.

Nadal v Novak still to go on court afterwards.

Buzzo 13-07-18 06:39 PM

14-14 in the 5th.

What was Isners longest game score 70/68 in the 5th?

Liverpool 13-07-18 06:45 PM

Didn't know Kuyt had took up tennis
