    Andy has just denied being best man to Nole. They still do not even know if Nole is getting married.

    Maybe they do not know the date or something.

    sample "There were moments in the three hours and 23 minutes of his 6-7, 2-6, 6-2, 6-0, 6-4 win over the Dutchman when his head-shaking, swearing persona accurately reflected the standard of his tennis. He had every right to be furious with his maddening inconsistency and loss of concentration. Yet he redeemed himself with the most exhilarating fightback and a closing few games that reached new levels of tension, as Murray held his nerve and Haase cracked, physically as well as mentally."

    He said it yesterday in his pre-match Petch interview. The story was in a Serbian newspaper - Andy reckoned it was a joke about the fact that he is always runner-up to Nole. He said he'd heard nothing about Novak getting married and that he would ask him about it.

    on the radio it sounded so one sided, as if lopez hadn't showed up, radio coms proposing mock fines for him when he played particularly stupid shots.

    I can remember Andy losing, but at the time he was not admitting things were going wrong.

    sample "Murray will take most satisfaction from coming through another of those rough patches known only to him and his inner voice.

Moreover, they have been tested these past days, as they have been tested since Australia in January, by what is without doubt the deepest pool of talent ever to be amassed on the men’s side."

    Telegraph - US Open Diary 2011: Michelle Obama serves up a treat - by Alex Willis
    "Andy Murray was at times sublime, at times surprising against John Isner, but most importantly, he got the job done to reach his fourth Grand Slam semi this year. The first two sets were superb, the third not so much, the fourth nail-chewing, but it was a telling performance from the world No 4. He's amped."

    sample highlight "there were passages in this match when the unfamiliar sight of Murray at the net changed the whole mood of the contest. Remarkably for one of the game's defensive masters, Murray moved into that high-risk, high-reward zone 44 times, winning the point on 33 of his visits.

    It is a strategy he as consistently rejected throughout his career. Murray strives to contain his emotions but relying solely on control and discipline not only makes for a one-dimensional game but can suck the life out of his tennis when what he needs is a dramatic moment to lift himself to another level.

    The other dimension to playing a more expansive, even emotional, game is that it engages the crowd – and on Saturday night, large sections of the Arthur Ashe stadium were behind him."

    This article says more or less the same thing:

    Inevitable, I suppose. But I do think it is so unfair to point out that Rafa etc all play Davis Cup - Spain, France, Serbia have all got strength in depth if necessary. If GB are going to win their ties it means Andy absolutely has to win his 2 singles.

    He obviously enjoys playing when he is fit but these guys have such a horrendous schedule, and it obviously caught up with him yesterday. When I think that footballers get upset if they have to play twice in a week for 90 minutes I could scream.

    With each new report they seem to have him more and more in strike mode - more reasons to pillory him. They just cant leave him alone :evil:

    I totally agree with you LC. Andy really just said it as it is, including that hopefully a strike can be avoided, but lots of the headlines seem to imply he is the leader.

    I agree, this is so incredibly annoying - I wouldn't mind betting that Rafa doesn't have to put up with the same sort of treatment from the Spanish press.

    David Lloyd's piece speaks volumes about him - green-eyed and monster are the words that spring to mind. On the main tour circuit, when the game was much less physical than it is now, he reached a career high of 128, won 24 matches and lost 55 - I don't think he has any idea what it was like for the top players then let alone now! :evil:
