Andy was said to have had shingles @ the AO,if that was why no wonder he never did great.Word is now he's back & ready to fight @ his best.

No, he wasn't. Stop trying to make excuses.

"I was a bit sick for 10 days, a couple of weeks, after I got back from Australia," said Murray, who will play Malek Jaziri of Tunisia in the first round in Dubai. "I feel fresh and ready to go here.

Murray said he's not sure if the illness had already started developing while he was playing in the Australian Open.

The British top-ranked player was upset in a four-set, fourth-round encounter with Mischa Zverev at the first major of the year.

"I didn't play particularly well at the Australian Open," Murray said. "I started to play a bit better as it went on, but not as well as I would've liked."

No one said he had shingles at the AO, not even Murray himself. He lost to a guy playing great. That's it.

According to bookies, Trump will last a maximum of two years. If you think, he will last more than that, you can place a bet and make some money.

He said he's only been back to practicing after the groin injury for 3 days, so some rust is to be expected.

Meanwhile...Stan's being a head case again and lost to a guy he should beat in his sleep. Maybe he just didn't want to risk another possible loss to Roger in the final...assuming Murray still can't figure out how to break Roger's serve if they play in the semis...Snicker

Stan's a head case. I shrug when people say he's a "hall of famer" because of his 3 Slams. Yet he can't ever play consistently enough to regularly win 250, 500 or 1000 events. He's only won 15 titles - 3 of them just happen to be Slams. Rolleyes

Murray was "a bit sick" at the AO? That's his excuse? Rolleyes Roger said he had a cold he'd been struggling with for 2 weeks...and went on to play 3 5 setters and win his 18th Slam. Didn't Roger play the first 6 months of 2008 with mono? Remember when Pete Sampras barfed at the US Open in the middle of his match against Corretja? Steffi Graff once got her period (and severe cramps) in the middle of a 3-set French Open final slugfest against Seles - and didn't tell anyone about it until years later. But...Andy was "a bit sick" and some of his fans think that's an excuse for losing? Lolz Alrighty then. Moving on...

If some of you would read correctly then you would have read that Muzz has said that he GOT the shingles AFTER the AO

Actually Carol we all read just fine, thanks. It was sid who said otherwise. A convenient excuse as a Murray fan.

Has anyone seen Stan the Man recently? I am a bit worried. Sad He was last spotted losing to Damir Dzumhur in humiliating fashion, wearing this kind of colour scheme:

Yes and like I said, we are all aware he didn't have it during the AO except sid. You seem like your normal block capital angry self at people for nothing. The only person on this site claiming Murray had shingles at the AO is sid. The rest of us can read just fine.

Murray played cracking tennis today. Best match of his so far this year. Murray vs Federer should be awesome.

Berdych lost. Usually, he has an automatic entry into QF. He usually wins matches against people whom he is supposed to win and then loses, that too big time, against top players.

This means, this may be the end of Berdych (just like Ferrer).
