Murray def. Melzer 6-7 4-6 7-6 6-1 6-3

Not his best play, obviously but for coming back from two sets down. I could've done with less moaning but Andy without his bitching wouldn't be Andy I guess.

Melzer

Murray's behavior in the 5th screaming "IT'S TOO STRONG" after a winner right at Melzer's face and flexing his muscle like a complete numbskull right after MP, really classy stuff

Muzza!

The moaning-and-groaning...

"It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, older, it's getting colder...

Am I still here? As one, with The Fear?
Am I still alive? I'm still f*cking ... Here...!"

I thought he was going to lose. He actually won more points in the 1st two sets.

A shame for Melzer to cramp and run out of gas at the end.

I get embarrassed for him every time Murray flexes his puny muscles at the end of a match.

Congrats to Andy Roddick, 2017 Hall of Fame!

Melzer is too weak phisically to play matches around 4 hours Was 5:4* up in the third set tie-break.

Melzer was red lining. Couldn't believe it. Murray has that winning mentality now and he looked so fresh, whereas Melzer looked knackered.

Yes Murray is a total twat. I don't see him winning a slam with that attitude on court.

Murray is crazy. I never really liked him, but I'm liking him less and less the more I see him. But I must give respect to him cuz that was a great comeback.

MTF seems to hate people who show some personality on the court.

Murray's attitude was "how dare you to even think you can win this"
Good job for coming back from two sets down.

Never in doubt, Andy

Might want to calm down on the obnoxiousness though, perhaps.

But he got it done and looked like he could go longer if he needed. Melzer was done physically after a couple of hours.
