AO R4: Verdasco def. "OZ Open favourite" Murray 2-6 6-1 1-6 6-3 6-4

Undisputed OZ Open favourite Murray .

Weird scoreline. While I'm pretty indifferent towards Verdasco, I really enjoy the Murray mania getting a reality check .

About the match, Murray looked a bit out of sorts but I think most of it was due to Verdasco's good play than anything else. Verdasco held after a long game with break points at 2*-3 in the fifth and broke right after that. Murray's challenges were poor in the fifth, lost all 3.

When a passive player runs into a more aggressive player playing well, this may happen .

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.
Somewhere out there, there is a homeless person who once took betting advice from GSMnadal

Fernando "#3 Spaniard" Verdasco beats Andy "Favorite" Murray 2-6, 6-1, 1-6, 6-3, 6-4

Erratic match from both...



I am a fan of Federer, Gasquet, Baghdatis, the long-deceased Safin, Youzhny, Nalbandian, Rochus, Tsonga, the sadly-departed Santoro, and good, hearty, competitive tennis matches. The quality of my life does not rest solely on who wins these matches. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that I can live quite happily after a player I like chokes, mugs, bashes, or otherwise succumbs to a loss.

AO rd4 - Verdasco def Murray 2-6 6-1 1-6 6-3 6-4

Alright, Murray may have been a clear favorite for many at the beginning. But I guess everyone ignored Verdasco, who has become the surprise of the tournament so far, do we agree on this?

Too bad, we won't see Murray elevating into the heavens and become a god among mortals. But wonderful news for those who have had enough of him lately.

Verdasco, I wish the best for you now. Good luck in the next round.

Oh, and say goodbye to the whole top 8 in the Quarters

Devasted. Verdasco played great i thought, but murray was never really there.

Was never to be i guess.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Lol. I don't mind Murray, but this is dedicated to all of you bandwagoners who thought he was soooooooooo impressive for crushing mugs in the first rounds by doing nothing but running around and retrieving everything.
