Seemed like a conscious tactic. Just saw him interviewed. Said Sam is more of an inconsistent player, so he didn't have to take the ball on as much. Also said he felt uncomfortable on the court. Said he didn't feel like he could go after his shots like he did in Toronto, because the courts are so much faster in Cinci.
I know it was tactical, i wasnt worried.
Murray isnt as good to watch playing like that, but hes still really intelligent. Sam was the opposite, he was hitting the ball exactly where muzza wanted it all the time.
Murray won anyway, nothing else matters really.
