AO Round 2 - Murray defeats Gicquel 6-1 6-4 6-3

Through to face either Nieminenenenenen or Serra.

A tidy match, started off brilliantly, and then regressed slightly. Felt that Murray had the ability to go up a gear to seal the elusive break in each set.

R4 encounter with Monfils could be promising.

Re: AO Round 2 - Murray defeats Gicquel 6-1 6-4 6-3

I have no words to describe how pathetic a match can get when 2 mugs face off
The tournament organizers should just start moving all the early round muggay matches out of town,somewhere far far away from the human eye.
The only good thing about this match is that it will serve as a perfect example to anyone who plans make mug pushing a career.

Murray played a great first set. The last two were a bit dodgy, but there was a big left to right cross wind which he wouldnt have in the two big arenas where he'll probably play the rest of the tournament.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Yeah good enough, good as it needed to be. Hopefully now he starts moving up the gears.

Nice draw Murray has until he faces the Nadal. Vamos!

Routine win apart from a slight blip in the third set. Serving still not at his best, but good to see him coming to the net a bit more and being a bit more aggressive on some of his ground strokes.

Bits I saw looked good. If his form carries on improving, he'll be a serious threat to Nadal in the quarters.

With RoBotro limping past Flake in a long ass match and Serra next it's a dream draw for Murray.

Hardly a dream with Nadal coming before DelPotro. Looking too far ahead is the curse of the British media.

Nadal on a hardcourt is a nice match up for him- junk and topspin landing into a perfect hitting zone to blast winners (see Australian Open 2007 and US Open 2008) although it would still take a very hot performance to see him through.
