The question is whether sports like tennis should even be at the olympics and did most of the competitors take it as serious as Murray did. Does anyone really think that if it was a major final that the likes of Federer and Djokovic would roll over so easily?

having run/trained with elite tennis players i can confirm that these guys can move.

its clear to everyone that murray either meant Mo was a bit crap, his interview carried on to mention he was better than Redgrave on the rowing machine and faster than Hoy at spin classes   OR  he actually said he does 400m reps in training and in a fresh 400m he can only hit a 57s whereas Mo did a 53s after 9600m.  He was clearly awestuck at what Mo did.

I don't agree Dean. What Mo did was like winning the World Cup Final but what Murray did was like winning a pre-season friendly over a better team who were not taking it seriously.

How can you say you disagree when what you've written hasn't got anything to do with the point that Dean was making?

57 seconds isn't particularly fast for a male athlete with explosive speed.  I would be surprised if Murray wasn't quicker than that.  Of the professionals there'd certainly be a few who couldn't do 57 and quite a few who could go a fair bit faster. Funny that - the answer isn't black and white.  It depends on your definition of professional, which is wide-ranging in tennis.

Anyone who thinks what he said was in any way a criticism of Farah is hard of hearing or simple.

Moraghan: I thought he was simply stating his admiration for Farah.

birkmyre - it seems we're in complete agreement then!

07/08/2012 at 16:07
He was, but why let the truth get in the way of a good argument

Moraghan: Not often that happens somebody agreeing with me. Not in our house anyway (allegedly)

Of course he was only praising Mo Farah and of course he is capable of running 400 in 57 seconds. I don't think anyone except Cop-out has suggested anything else.

It was praise indeed for Farah.. kudos to both our boys.
