Solid win for the new #3.
Bolelli hit a little bit too many UE's but played a good match though, too bad he returns like shit.

Bolelli has the mental strength of a mockingbird.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

High quality match. Bolelli played out of his skin. That UE stat was a joke. Fuck knows who put those together.

Re: Madrid R2: Murray def. Bolelli 7-6(9) 6-4

Not so bad from Murray he wasnt overly defensive as he was in Rome, he wasnt great but I think its a decent start from the number #3 against a good oppenant.

Go Andy!

Re: Madrid R2: Murray def. Bolelli 7-6(9) 6-4

As long as there are generous mugs to gift him points, games and sets, Murray will keep wining. But that game "chase the ball around" won't cut a deal against serious competition. I would love to see Murray-Federer SF. It should be hilarious.

Re: Madrid R2: Murray def. Bolelli 7-6(9) 6-4

UE stats here clearly counting forced errors, serve returns, everything.

Bolelli played out of his skin, but beating Murray in a tiebreak is borderling Mission Impossible these days. Missed all four bps, but that's not surprising - he's got the worst bp conversion in the top150, and Murray had huge serves on three of them.

Murray struggled to find his timing, serve was awful first set too. Got some more confidence as the serve improved in the 2nd.

Yep. Sure he can't return well and all, but that has nothing to do with how he lost the match. He's just a mental midget that has no concentration during the important moments.
