A robust performance from Murray - playing these all-serve players is extremely frustrating.

QF with Nadal should be a good one.

Well played by Murray in the big points. Some great passes, actually went for the DTL passes which is good for him.

Isner seemed to be troubled by the sun when serving, at least at the end of the first set he had a really low ball toss.

After Nadal beat Monfils at Doha, before AO 2014

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

Murray played well. Providing Nadal gets through, I like Murray's chances against him. That will be a tough one to call.

Shame Isner didn't take the first set. His backhand return seems dismal.

Good tactical match from Murray, he took pace of his first serve to up the percentage and stop Isner from getting the advantage early in rallies from the second serve. He hit as many low balls as possible, and gave Isner absolutely no free points (which is a must).

Good tournament from John.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Federer - The Artist
Murray - The Tactician
Nalbandian - The Ballstriker
Llodra - The S/V

Horrible for tennis. Isner choked. Should have converted his set- and break points.
Murray was as annoying as ever with his "COME ON" after every of Isner's UEs... as if Mugray's disgusting game wasn't enough.

Too good from Andy. Excellent performance, especially in the 3rd.

If Isner gets that forehand at set point in the 1st, which was out by only an inch, this is a very different match. Shows you how much luck the top guys have to go along with their skill.

These passes were in Rafa's style. Good luck, Rafito, I thought it would be easier.
