USO R1: [6] Murray d. Roitman 6-3 6-4 6-0

Perfect match for Andy as far as I am concerned. Straight sets, never looked in any real danger, played well enough but nowhere near his best, 95 minutes or so, can build on this performance but not peaking too early.

And a sensational finishing point

Well start Murray!

Now time to build on this and make up for that Australian Open disappointment. I'm expecting a good run with this great draw.

what the hell is wrong with murray serve? he had an average of 80 mph second serve. i'm shock cause most wta player had a faster second serve than murray. what shock me the most is when i saw dementieva had an average of 82 mph second serve. he really has to improve his serve.

He saw Roitman was struggling to attack his slow spinny high second serve and so he employed it more often - with great success - sometimes he came in behind it to take on the volley.

He will win everything in straights and then lose to Guccione in the final 1/6,0/6,2/6

Murray's second serve is harder to return than most WTA first serves because he compensates the lack of pace with much more spin.

Good stuff from Andy. Played well within himself. Needs to improve the first serve percentage, though. Gotta love that finishing shot. Pure talent.

still, serving at 80 mph is pretty bad. most player knows murray weakness is his second serve. it's slow with poor placement(too central) so it's easy to attack him.

And yet, a lot of players struggle to do so. His points won behind second serve % is hardly dreadful usually.

I think he will need to serve better in the tournament but the thing is, he can. He did as well as he needed to, today.

Good to see a straightforward straight sets win to kick off his Slam.
He needs to work on that serve, but I'm sure he knows this. A good springboard of a match.
