Fognini receiving a medical timeout having his right ankle taped up. Murray walking around like an old man with hip problems.

Murray still playing passively but Fognini is making unforced errors. Murray goes a double break up - now serving for the set.

Murrays serving is helping Murray out. Murray's movement is not good at all, but he is serving well and that is relieving the pressure on his own serve. Fognini's level has dropped. Murray wins the third set 6-1 but the set was strange - two misfiring players.

Fognini seems to be breaking down mentally on court. He should just be focusing on getting Murray to move.

I think Murray is really struggling for movement - but he is fighting.  Fognini has a break point on Murray's serve and Murray double faults. Fognini now a break up in the fourth.

Code violation after swearing.  Wasting his final HE challenge of the set. It comes and goes with Fognini.

Well that just isn't human 

From looking like he might be pulling out through injury to saving 5 set points and winning in 4

He literally could bend down to hit his bh

Astounding

That was heroical from Murray.  He clearly had an issue - his movement was not good at all.  When Fognini wasted his last HE challenge that's when I felt the fates were offering Murray an opportunity for a victory - and Murray somehow managed to take it.  There seemed no way he would win a final set - so it was all or nothing to turns things around in the fourth set. And Murray using all his court craft, wiliness and last reserves of energy managed to get the break back and somehow win the set.

But Murray's physical condition doesn't look good for someone who in good condition would be challenging for the title. Hopefully the rest he will get before the next round will do him some good.

Really strange match with huge swings in momentum. Fognini played much the better tennis but at times dropped away badly After the first set Murray didn't play well at all but showed a lot of grit to hang in and come up with some good games at the end of fourth set. Doesn't look at all fit though. There seemed to be very little power in his ground strokes which meant that Fognini could just wait and tee up on one to win the point. Only saw one attempted drop shot from Murray in the final three sets and it failed. Very unlike him. Think best he can do is the semis. Hoping for more though.

Caught 10 minutes of Cilic highlights, hitting very cleanly, lots of winners, and arguably still playing a little within himself - if such can be judged when you watched about 10 min that is.

I'd echo this post and agree on his chances here. Murray cannot win this year on this showing where is movement was not great. Movement is key to success on grass and the hip injury seems to still be bothering him. Guts and determination can only get you so far.
