RG R2: Murray defeats Starace 6-3 2-6 7-5 6-4

Fun match, probably the best of the tournament so far. Murray's forehand looked good. Starace was red hot for a set and a half before losing a big lead in the third.

Gattuso or LaLo next for him.

Re: RG R2: Murray defeats Starace 6-3 2-6 7-5 6-4

should have been a 5 setter at the very least. starace led *5-2 in the 3rd. . Murray won't make it past the 4th round if he continues playing like that (well he wasn't horrible it was just starace playing well for the 2nd set till 5-2 in the 3rd set)

Starace was playing absolutely out of his skin for a set and a half. He couldn't miss. Tartan Heart doesn't know when he's beaten, though.

Too big from Murray in the end. Was striking the ball well.

Starace had a good game plan and played well. But he did what everyone does nowadays when they play top players, choke. Though Murray did step it up.

Please... Absolute awful match.. Murray played like crap and should have at least be down 2 sets to 1. Epic choke from Starace.

Terrible match.

Dedicated to Halba

Good fighting spirit Muzza, but seriously need to be more consistent on the depth and topspin with the forehand.

Starace gave away the 3rd set. Major choke.
Kudos to Murray for hanging in there and taking it 4 sets.

Starace's dropshots were of the highest quality, he showed some of his old form in the 2nd and 3rd sets, but once he failed to close out the 3rd set, then there was no way Murray losing this at all.

Dunblane fought hard in the 3rd set and Starace got a bit passive as well as he is known to do when he has chances against the bigger players.

Murray would love LaLo as his next opponent.

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".

Er Starace was too good for him in that period, not Murray being shit. He wasn't that bad in that set and a half

Potato head couldn't keep it up on a consistent level and that was the key. The winner to UE stats will be positive for both players I think.

Nothing wrong with how Murray played. He had a brief dip, but you have to credit Starace. He was playing a blinder. Murray ended up playing very well. He had to really.

Not sure who will beat him before the quarters.
