AO R1 (5) Murray def. Anderson 6-1 6-1 6-2

2 aces in the entirety of the match for Anderson

Difficult to judge exactly what kind of form Murray is in - didn't even need his B game today.

Re: AO R1: Murray def. Anderson 6-1, 6-1, 6-2

pathetic that this was on Rod Laver Arena instead of Del Potro/Russell, which is clearly a better match Del Potro is the most recent GS champ too, so why does slamless Murray get court priority? :retard:

anyway, dull match. Anderson has nothing to trouble Murray

Someone ban Mats Wilander from television. As if any more incentive was required, he picked Anderson to beat Murray.

Very good match from Murray, with the exception of his serve.

Yep, they mentioned it on Eurosport. He really doesn't have a clue.

Re: AO R1: Murray def. Anderson 6-1, 6-1, 6-2

I literally fell back asleep after the first set...until I heard the oncourt interview.

Anyway, my impressions from what I remember seeing were that Muzza's serving was dreadful...if he offers that sort of display up against a big hitter like Del Potro (assuming the chap in question is fit) he'll suffer the consequences. Surely won't help him against Nadal either.

Anderson has regressed a little from the player I saw 2 years ago imo...his service action was a little strange back then, but the modified stroke has made it a little less effective imo. Wasn't too good with directing it, and not as powerful as I remember...that said, it could have been nerves.

Wilander deserves a special mention for being a retard again...Anderson a (future) top 30 player? My arse. Top 100 is really as good as it gets (or got) for him imo, although it would be nice if he could go further.

Poor Anderson,he was so disgusted and deviated by the ugly pushing passing shots and mug netplay that was on display by the pale vampire across the net that he could not even concentrate on the match.. thus the end result.

and we thought Reed was bad...

Muzza did well but his opponent was nowhere near his level, his C-game allowed him to win 1,1 and 2

Rafael "The Matador of Spin" Nadal
Roger “The Magician of Precision” Federer
Del Potro, Ferrer, Haas, Zeballos

Re: AO R1: Murray def. Anderson 6-1, 6-1, 6-2

No way should Murray be winning 1 1 and 2 against even some one like Anderson with 33% first serves in for the match and only showing intermittent improvement on his second serve speed and placement.

Andy's ground game was excellent today against limited resistance but those serve numbers mean he has no reason to be overly satisfied.

Re: AO R1: Murray def. Anderson 6-1, 6-1, 6-2

Murray was basically winning points off rally strokes, slices and solid defensive play. The guy Anderson was basically pushing the ball with turtles pace, and still racking up UEs all over the place. One of the worst performances i've seen by a pro in a long time.

Murray did return well, but his serve was poor and I didn't think his forehand or backhand were all that strong either. Granted he didn't have too, but there wasn't much depth or oomph behind his balls, and rarely did he ever open the court up or produce outright winners from the baseline.

He looked like he was playing his D game, against a highschool player

I watched part of the first set and saw where this one was heading....extremely boring pushfest.
