Cincinnati R3: A. Murray beats R. Stepanek 6-4,6-1

Murray continues to win and had points to win 2nd set 6-0. Soon he will be favourite to win US Open.

Not bad....a bit off on the serve early in the second set but the ground game was looking pretty good - Stepanek was having some success going hard and flat into the Murray forehand, but not enough.

34 winners 16 UEs from Murray

Pretty entertaining match. Murray played well. Hopefully he and Fed meet in the semis.

Re: Cincinnati R3: A. Murray beats R. Stepanek 6-4,6-1

WHAT a performance by Murray!
Very clean, solid game. To me he's been the fav to win both Cincy and the USO for quite a while already, and it's rather scary to only see him become even stronger...

Very entertaining first set btw - some great shotmaking from both players. Stepanek did very well to hang in there and in fact it was just one weak serve game that made him lose that first set. In the second however, he completely lost it - started to make more UEs and Muzza completely took over.
Still, kudos to Sexy for the entertainment in that first set.

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).

Bit personal from Murray in the 2nd set, he wanted to rub it in, one too many mindgames from SexyLips.

When Stepanek finally held to avoid the bagel, he gave Murray a real stare as if he'd accomplished something ..... Murray gave him the you've-got-to-be-kidding glance in reply, and pointed at the scoreboard.

Some great passing shots by Muzza. Loved the lob to end the first set.

And that's exactly why Feds won't have any chance against this Murray, as it looked today as if he couldn't return properly to save his life.
