Re: Jurgen at the AO
I know I feel Jurgen should finally beat Andy Murray, but the experts don't seem t o agree.
Jurgen Melzer (11) vs. Andy Murray (5) - Melzer is a win away from his first non-clay Grand Slam quarterfinal, an accomplishment a long time coming considering he first took the field at Wimbledon in 2000. Unfortunately, Melzer is downright dismal in his career against Top 10 players, 11-44 to date, and he's 0-for-4 against the 23-year-old Murray.
The Scot is getting to that point again when people start asking about his ability to win "the big one." He lost in the final here a year ago to Roger Federer, and for his career, he's 51-14 in the first four rounds of the majors, but just 6-6 in the quarterfinals or later.
Murray has been a machine through the first three rounds, not losing more than three games in any one set. With his three straight wins to start the season, Murray has emerged victorious in 13 of his last 17 matches. With Mikhail Youzhny upset in the third round, Melzer will pass him and reach the Top 10 for the first time in his career regardless of what he does from here, but a couple more wins will have him there for a good while to come
JURGEN MELZER YOU ARE TERRIFIC
