London WTF RR: Murray def Del Potro 6-3 3-6 6-2

First set should've been 6-0, but failed to close it out on first 6 occasions. Del Potro started playing alot better in the second set. Third set was all Murray.

Del Pony played like crap in the 3rd set, shame he vanished that way after a very good 2nd set, Murray will be hard to beat here

He's had plenty of matches and it was a very good performance. No sane person can look at Pony's hitting starting from 5-0 down in the first set and say that he played a bad match. He was smacking the cover off the ball.

Re: London WTF RR: Murray def Del Potro 6-3 3-6 6-2

Murray needed 7 setpoints to clinch the first set... Very fair crowd And a nice venue too - reminds me of Masters in New York and Frankfurt.

I had an impression that the surface is very slow, is it prepareted specially for Murray's defensive skills?

Bit more difficult than I expected for Murray.

Re: London WTF RR: Murray def Del Potro 6-3 3-6 6-2

tennis lost here...the pusher won...

Q. Do you think you would have been able to play as well as you played today, or you think you would have pulled out from the game if it wasn't the Masters Cup final?

ROGER FEDERER: No, Roger Federer doesn't pull out. Otherwise he doesn't walk on court (smiling).

Low and slow surface. Disappointing from Pony in the 3rd set.
