Absolute joke how long Murray has been kept waiting here by the way.
Hes playing well with the style hes chosen, but its the wrong suit hes picked for this party.

I dont subscribe to the always attack camp. If you have an opponent whos nervous and looks afraid to hit the ball, and you throw in an error attacking, you give them a lift, and the same goes for defending in the opposite situation. Its recognising your opponent and choosing the right style at the right time.

Murrays very good at that, but not today, hes not put enough pop on his fh and hes given his serve up again.

It is not that late here. Fed will follow Kvitova vs Konta who are just starting.

But that does happen on occasion. A couple of years ago I was on Grandstand watching the ending of the day session after the night session was already done on Ashe.

Even if Murray were to somehow win today, these 5-setters cannot be good for his chances down the road. Will he play Wawrinka/Fed/Djokovic after this and go through them all?

If Anderson wants to win this match, he needs to do it in 3, otherwise he is toast.

@BS... Net points won

Anderson...29/40 (73%)
Murray ... 10/13 (77%)

Crucial hold for Murray now.

Murray's not winning this tournament. The draw was hard enough without Anderson playing like Marit Safin on speed.

Think the chance is gone though, Anderson has his serve back, a tiebreak has only 1 winner

Murray at least got it to the point where Kevin will be feeling the nerves - both in his last service game and then in potential TB.

Unlike Mannarino, this doesnt feel like GSM. I think Anderson may still get this


One thing though, regardless of the outcome every guy coming out of that match will become fans of them both.

Very good TB from Andy. Kevin did not play all that bad in it.

I say better than even chance that Andy takes it from here. Kevin has been playing above himself and I do not think he can quite keep it up. Andy I think can.

This match is a marathon, 3 and a half hours and we are barely into the 4th set. Even if Murray does get through this he's gonna be shattered after having to battle past Nick and Mannarino already! You would think he has a lot of chasing to do against Stan too...

My assumption when it comes to apparent injuries and ailments is that they are faking it unless proven otherwise.
