AO R128 Murray - Anderson

Kinda like this matchup, could become interesting. Wouldn't be surprised if this is gonna be the Scot's toughest match in rounds 1-3. Giraffe Man eased through qualifying in three straight set victories without getting broken and seems to cope well with the surface, while it's Murray's first competitive match since the Finals last year. Come on Kevin

Murray in 3, but will have to work for it.

Re: AO R128 Murray - Anderson

Not really the type of player Murray struggles against - the returns and the slices are just too effective.

Bout time Anderson did something again though, he looked so impressive at Las Vegas and Miami in 2008.

Re: AO R128 Murray - Anderson

If Anderson plays well he may get a set

Kinda sad both of them are playing each other early tho, would have liked Anderson to win a match or two...

Re: AO R128 Murray - Anderson

I think that it should be a relatively comfortable straight-sets win tbh. Anderson has a good serve (although not the most effective for a guy of 6'8) and moves surprisingly well for his height...but I don't see him doing Muzza too much damage from the back. From memory, Kev likes to volley a little as well, but generally Muzza is a nightmare for anyone wanting to do that against him.

Hope he takes something positive from the experience and builds on it in the coming months. As 'arf says, he looked good a couple of years ago but sadly couldn't push on.

Exactly this.

Re: AO R128 Murray - Anderson

Should be a 3 set Murray win but i think he will have his work cut out for him and it wont be as simple as you would think. Murray to win in something like 6-4 7-5 6-4

Re: AO R128 Murray - Anderson

murray leads 6-0, 6-0, 5-0 . anderson retires due to extensive running which cause his big balls to drop down on the floor. three squirrels then sees the opportunity for big nuts. after intense battle by the three squirrels battling for the big nuts. one squirrel got kicked in the balls and die instantly. the end.
