Wimbledon Round 3: Murray def. Simon 6-1 6-4 6-4

Murray did a good job to close it out in 3, Simon was getting better as it went on, played some nice stuff in the third.

Excellent third set from both, pity Simon was such a non-factor previously.

Still, Murray looking good here.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

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

Murray and Soderling get easy draws while Nadal is having the draw from hell.

Good tournament for Simon coming back from injury...showed some signs of why he was top 10. Murray played well at parts from what I saw

LOL @ nobody watching this match.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: Wimbledon Round 3: Murray def. Simon 6-1 6-4 6-4

Gilles killed himself and managed to play fairly well off the ground by the end, but there were just too many errors, still covered in rust, and his serve was non-existant today. His anticipation on returns and shot selection also weren't as good as usual and they are usually two of his biggest strengths, but he just needs matches. Anyway, it's great for him to be back. Hopefully he can continue to find his form in the next few tournaments.

I purposely haven't seen Murray play in a long time, but nice to see he is still so classy -- screaming 'come on' at the top of his lungs after DFs.

Re: Wimbledon Round 3: Murray def. Simon 6-1 6-4 6-4

Murray was playing too passively (waiting for Simon's errors which unfortunately usually arrived) and hardly ever approached the net even when Simon was giving him really short serves. Simon actually had a good strategy (mixing things up by approaching the net, the occasional serve and volley and playing a winner from the baseline) but couldn't get it done since he was a bit rusty. I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how competitive Simon managed to make the third set (which included saving a few break points) considering his lack of match play.

Yep..the evil Wimbledon planners predicted that would go to 5 sets to help him.

Listen to yourself you paranoid fool of a person.

Two of the most passive, boring players on the tour. Too bad one of them is British so they have to waste a CC spot to this snorefest.

You're quite right...

Despite the fact he won well....Murray still fails to attack at times.

Tis a shame for he really does possess all the skills to do so.

Unless he changes that mindset he will never win a slam.

That said, he's far to good to not go far here.

Oh how I wish he would be more aggressive.....the f'ing crazy thing is that he could.

His all-round game is up to it.

What really surprised me was how Murray chose to deal with Simon's short second serves. Instead of returning them and running to the net he chose to return them (sometimes right back to Simon) and then ran back to the baseline. He would have probably won this match much comfortably had he played the way I suggested. Simon was serving really poorly and shouldn't have held serve so many times.

This is the most frustrating thing about being a Murray fan, you could see it happening again in the 3rd set today but luckily Gilles didn't have the consistency to keep up his play. He usually steps up the aggressivness against the top players though, it's the players he is better than where he normally plays too passive.
