Cincy R3: Murray def. Gulbis 4-6, 6-3, 7-6(4)

Murray seemed lethargic throughout. I think initially that he was a little flustered that Gulbis wasn't ball bashing and resorted to creating the point. Murray resorted to just rolling a lot of his 1st serves in waiting for Gulbis to make the error off of the return or during the rally.

Not a great performance. But he did enough.

Gulbis is a mental midget.

Awful for tennis that the players who play their game cant see it through.

It wasn't pretty, but it was gutsy. He looked in pain out there.

As far as Gulbis goes, he really is a joke. If he couldn't beat Andy today, I don't think he ever will.

Murray looked like he tweaked something (hip? knee?) on a wrong footing by Gulbis mid-way through the third.

Andy did what he had to do, but is ripe for the picking for Fish next round.

As for Gulbis, some good stuff, but bad decision making in crucial times and a MUGGY tiebreak.

Gulbis wouldn't have made an Ace or good 1st serve in that breaker if it so went on to infinity, Mugray outruns another mug playing below average!!

Pathetic stuff by Gulbis Murray played 30 % below his standards, won actually only thanks to his amazing defensive skills and lack of Gulbis' killer instinct.
