Rotterdam R2: Murray def Seppi 7-6 (4) 7-5

High quality match, tennis was the winner.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Ugly from Muzza on the most part, confidence seems to have dropped since AO, hopefully he gets it back in next match.

Go Andy!

A horrendous match. Muzza was awful. My eyes are still bleeding.

Needs to up his game for the famous ass in the final. Having said that, at least Andy didn't get taken to 3 sets.

He did enough, that's all that can be said!

Seppi does get you into a grinding battle though.

Re: Rotterdam R2: Murray def Seppi 7-6 (4) 7-5

Both were kinda expecting something instead of going for the win, don't ask me what.

Eventually one of them netted more balls than the other and the match was over. What a thriller.

Nadal career prediction: 6 RG, 2 Wimbledon, 1 Australian Open, 1 US Open, 2 Master Cup, 20 Master Series, 65 titles.
(Predicted before RG 2008 when he had 3xRG)

I didn't see a lot because I want to concentrate today on Bellucci-Ferrero and Tsonga-Tursunov matches but I saw Murray had setpoint already at 5:2 in the first set. I think it's one of the strongest points in his mental department. Despite wasting setpints/matchpoints, he is still focusing and at the end wins those sets.

You should worry if you had seen the completely emptyness in Muzza's face. If he managed to break Seppi in the second is because he DF'ed in a BP.

This has been epic, no joke.

Andy looked as though he had many things on his mind, lots of decisions to make, such as what he would have for dinner tonight. Then after a set and a half he remembered where he was and what he was supposed to be doing and got on with the job.

His lack of concentration in early matches is a bit worrying, but he does seem to get the job done more often than not these days.

Didn't see the match, but, while I don't doubt that Muzza was as awful as has been reported, Seppi isn't the sort of player that often brings the best tennis out of his opponent...he is quite awkward to play against.

Anyway, a win is a win...and it is still hard to see him losing before the final (if at all).

Having watched the three favourites so far, I would say they are playing like complete shit. Not sure who will outmug the other in the final, but honestly if they're playing like this, Nadal, Tsonga and Murray would do better staying at home.

Stupid mandatory tournaments. Silly Rafa for coming here and Dubai instead of getting free titles & points in South America.
