Ambitious of Murray to try and win this match whilst leaving his backhand in the locker room. Didn't pay off, sadly.

Re: Madrid QF: Del Potro defeats Murray 7-6 6-3

Very impressive from Del Pony. IMO one of the best forehands out there, in terms of power and consistency. Backhand was rock solid as well...and the serve was good enough. I don't think he missed a smash all match long....excellent net point ratio. Turned it up on the big points....i'm starting to like this kid. Lol at telling the umpire to water the court.

Ugly, defensive play from Murray. He just doesn't have it on clay. Del Pony was overpowering him consistently, and Murray's variety had no effect on the Argentine(other than a few slices to Pony's forehand). A lot of shouting, muttering, and whining from Andy as well.

Quite simply....Too Big from Del Potro.

Muzza lost the plot when his string broke in the 1st set lol
He played like a clay court clown tonight

Congrats to del potro though, he played well

Muzza will thrash him when they switch surfaces though

No shame in Andy losing this. 11 aces and 3 match points saved. Not a bad tourney either for him. He's still about 300 points ahead of Djokovic. Onto Rollnad Garros Muzza
