Re: AO SF: Djokovic outmarathons Murray 6-3 3-6 6-7(4) 6-1 7-5
Murray showed huge balls coming back in the fifth set.
First 3 sets were a bit nervy with a lot of breaks. Both players didn't really want to attack much, probably partly because of the tension and partly because they are so quick that the reward from aggressive play isn't sufficient compared to the risk.
4th set, Djokovic opened his shoulders and Murray seemed gassed. 5th went similarly until Djokovic served from the set, Murray broke with awesome play and caught second wind. Then Djokovic faces 3 break points at 5-5 and saves his serve from 15-40 down. Breaks Murray to 15 with great tennis.
Really hope that Nole can recover, he did recover at USO but he has seemed gassed in the middle of a few matches here, in the Ferrer match and in this match as well.
After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014
lol, who will beat him? Wawrinka? Berdych? Gulbis? Rosol? Federer?
Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
