Murray beats Marchenko 6/1 6/3 6/3

Good performance from Murray.

Ukrainian is erratic but has game. Is the classic bad frontrunner though.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Caught the first set where Murray looked good. I'd like to see him bring some aggression against GGL. It could be an entertaining match.

Too much pusher shite at times from Andy, but oh well, he did a bit of that against Serra last year and then stepped it up.

Marchenko isn't bad. Still wonder why he needed three TBs to beat Josh 'hit the floor before the net' Goodall though.

Re: Murray beats Marchenko 6/1 6/3 6/3

Pretty good match. Marchenko was entertaining here but way too inconsistent. His attacking tennis reminded me of Golubev for some reason (though Andrey has a one-hander obviously). An awesome winner one point, a miss by 2 metres the point after. Marchenko also needs to improve his serve if he wants to make an impact in the top 30... but he did his best and there were some great rallies today.

Murray was excellent. If Andy and Soderling face off in the quarters, Robin will have his hands full.

Agreed, Marchenko could have a future imo. He seems to have a good attitude, can see plenty of five set slam epics involving him in the future.

He had the right gameplan too, attacking Murray, taking big swings at the second serve, instead of trying to out-manouvere him. Unfortunately he's not experienced enough to pull it off.

I love all aspects of TENNIS.

Murray won't be tested until QF. And in QF against Sod anything goes...

Re: Murray beats Marchenko 6/1 6/3 6/3

Marchenko was just playing way beyond his talent and comfort zone, totally unsustainable. Anyone can swing for the fences when they don't really believe they can win, it's why huge underdogs often push top guys then lose in slams (see Senor Falla).

Re: Murray beats Marchenko 6/1 6/3 6/3

Murray was pushing but against a basher like Marchenko that's all you can do. He still looks good enough to make the final again, if he can make it through GGL

Good win for Murray who looked to be playing pretty well today, hope he can keep it up and reach the final again.

Re: Murray beats Marchenko 6/1 6/3 6/3

Really liked Marchenko's attitude. He has the flashy shots but inconsistency and inexperience in this match completely killed him. Also, Murray didn't miss much - especially off his serve. Hope to see more of IM in the future making it deep in tournaments.
