Andy Murray Latest and General Tennis Chat

Pity for Radacanu, but not surprising. Seems a long way a way off now, but if she can get her fitness and form back she's certainly got more majors in her at some point.

Still, even if she never hits another tennis ball she would go down as the greatest British female player for 50 years.

John Isner has now converted his second break point against Andy Murray in nine matches.  He has made 50 opportunities.

Who is this motherfucker?

You’ve never heard of Isner?  Was in the match at Wimledon a few years ago that lasted 3 days and finished about 70-68 in the final set which prompted the rule change.

He’s famous.

I think if Murray could have picked a seeded player to face in the second round, he'd have picked Isner, this is a great draw. He's the archetypal big serving clogger, the kind of player Murray has mopped up with ease with his returning game throughout his career. They've played eight times previously, and Murray has won the lot. And of course Isner is 37, two years older than Andy, this is no improving up and comer. If Murray can stay fit he will surely win this.

7-6 , 7-5, 6-7, 6-1.

 

Isner wouldn’t even be in the top 5 cherry picked seeds for Murray.  Ruud, Schwarzman, Tsitsipas, Carreno-Busta, the two Serbs not named Djokovic, Evans or Baez and then you might pick Isner.

The rest is spot on though despite Andy struggling on his own serve currently.

That didn’t prompt the rule change.  His match against Anderson in the semi final in 2018 that finished 26-24 (ish) that prompted the rule change.

Quick question - Andrew Castle or John Inverdale, who’s taking the title of worst tennis commentator? The much missed Garry Richardson for the post match interviews naturally.

Is Raducanu the ultimate flash in the pan? 

She certainly had the perfect storm in New York, but I think it's symptomatic of how little there is between most of the women's players. Lots of seeds tumbling out early as seems to be normal at all the slams now on the women's side.

Largely this.  She is one year into her career.  The women’s game is full of players that play unique styles, due to lack of power.

Caro Garcia is a former top 4 singles player and no 1 doubles player.  Anyone that thought Emma would just turn up and beat her is deluded.  Emma did something that had never been done before, but she beat one top 20 player in that run.

Iga Swiatek disappeared after winning her first Slam.  The womens game is littered with one slam wonders.  Coco Gauff, Clara Tauson, Leylah Fernandez were all ahead of Raducanu before that week in September and even now all of them are better than her too.  But Raducanu’s run will go down in tennis history.
