nick the greek, I am not angry but I can be aggressive, yes. It's very hard to tell who has real interest in tennis and in a more decent tennis discussion these days. Just look at the responses on the thread so far. It's been negative and sarcastic not that I am taking any of this personally, but it doesn't leave for a discussion. So my responses are likewise. What Andy said is a very realistic thing to say...that he has a chance. He has to believe in it first to have a chance. I get tired of stupid and biased responses.Well, If you're gonna be aggressive every time you hear something bad being said against your fave than you'll be very busy.
Winning any GS is hard and is reserved for real champions.You claim to know tennis.Okay, fair enough.But, how about being realistic?Andy is yet to win a title(any title) on clay, not to mention RG.He can say whatever he wants.Reality is, No1e, Rafa and even Fed have more chances to win RG than Andy.
Nick, you are a smart guy, and you'll figure out who Andy fans on this board are. Sid and Emma. Sid, who is very passionate about Mandy is more sensitive (very passionate but a great guy). Emma just goes with her agenda. I tried to explain to her, what you just mentioned in your post ... Murray has won nothing on clay and it's not realistic to talk about him winning RG, then she trows all of this BS 'but Murray won a set against both Nole and Rafa in 2011
' and he needs to believe??? Next thing she says 'Murray was gunning for a slam last year, so he ditched a lot of tournaments by exiting early'
. that is just beyond stupid. Murray didn't ditch anything, he got outplayed by better players, but that's the concept she can't comprehend.
then I try to explain few other things related to the topic and she says, out of nowhere, 'you are Serbian, that's why you support Nole' and call me a liar. oh, boy. women
