Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1
My concern was that you might feel aggravated to the point of wanting to leave the forum again,but I won't dwell on the past too much because you told me that there weren't any hard feelings and,based on what you've shown in your time here,I'm strongly inclined to take you at your word and let that old stuff go.
My 'loser' accusation is definitely subjective and not factual;obviously,he's been a successful player so he's not some total failure.However,most tennis insiders consider him a top-notch talent,and Murray has usually fallen woefully short vs. the Triumvirate at Slams...rarely even competitive.This year,Novak has been limping along and lacking explosiveness of movement,and he sprayed LOTS of UEs in the semi...and Murray STILL failed.A small sign that I consider telling is that Andy tried to dismiss Nole's limping after the match...an underhanded way of insinuating that Nole was 100%.In MY view,a rationalization---Murray's saying,basically,'No,I'm not a loser just because I couldn't beat Nole even when he was sub-par."
