US Open - Day Six

Post by CaledonianCraig on Sat 03 Sep 2016, 11:19 am

First topic message reminder :

Can Murray and Evans make it four British in the Fourth Round. Both face totally different challenges. Murray faces Lorenzo who had a marathon match lasting almost five hours in the previous round whilst Evans faces dual slam winner Stan Wawrinka. Also Del Potro is in action as are Dimitrov and Kyrgios.

It seems that Lorenzi's got under Murray's skin. Murray can't handle Lorenzi taking the ball early and his amazing movement in returning the balls.

Murray has to relax and play the match long. Rely on his superior fitness, be content to play long rallies and consider moving Lorenzi around the court.

I am not sure Murray is a great match play tactician ...

No way on earth has Andy got better fitness than Lorenzi - I doubt even Novak can say that! He will sort it out though. He isn't going to continue to blitz forehands into the fence.

I don't know which commentators NS is listening to but I haven't seen any sign that Lorenzi is taking the ball particularly early. His stock position is a few feet behind the baseline. What has caused Andy problems is the incredible depth Lorenzi has kept on his standard rallying shots. It's like playing Ferrer at his peak on speed!

The commentators were saying that Murray appeared to be not quite getting to the ball - that he was a little behind the play. Then they said it was because Lorenzi was taking the ball early or / and Murray wasn't hearing the ball strike clearly.

"BBC radio five live sports extra" commentators: Paul Newman (Tennis correspondent for the Independent on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra) & Russell Fuller (BBC tennis correspondent in New York). Dom Inglott it seems. Plus David Law. I don't know. Two commentators plus additional people texting to the online platform

Perhaps we should remember Lorenzi is in the form of his life and even at 34 has scaled to his highest ever ranking. Couple that with Murray not serving well at all and not being at his best it explains why we are where we are.

Lorenzi has been stuck on 9 winners for about a set and a half. Murray now looking the real deal for the first time in the match.

Normal service has been restored it seems. Murray is winning and Lorenzi is obliging by losing.

That could be it as well. If Murray is serving well then he expends less energy holding serve and then can focus on breaking Lorenzi's serve. But it also seems that Lorenzi's blisters are taking effect and he is slowing down.

More to do with the 5 hour match he played two days ago I'd say. Murray seals the set and leads 7-6 5-7 6-2.

Lorenzi is still moving phenomenally well. He just doesn't have the ball-striking ability of Murray who is starting to play with all talent at his disposal.

Looking at video of incident he did go over on his left ankle so I'd say not.
