RG QF: Murray (4) def. Chela, 7-6(2) 7-5 6-2

Chela should've had the first set and then struggled afterwards

Chela had a couple set points in the first set as Murray looked a little hampered again, but lost them and eventually lost the tiebreaker. Andy played far better in the 2nd set, was serving for it up 5-2 before getting broken twice to level it at 5-5...then won the next 2 games. Thought the 3rd set was going to be similar when he was missing at 5-2 up, but he closed it out fashionably with a dropper.

Great run for JIC to take advantage of his draw and make it this far, just didn't have the legs to get to all those drop shots and keep rallying with Andy. Looking forward to hopefully a good match against Rafa

Legs too thick, too much clay in his heart.

Clayheart marches on.

Awful match Massive choking, double faulting on set points, WTA like breaks, pushing fest.....

Just another Murray match I guess

Well, I hope Murray enjoyed challenger level draw to the semis, but Nadal is the end of the road for him, even if he's not at his best, but he's getting there. Troicki and Chela (in the 1st set especially) both choked, which I fully expected, considering their mental strength. Nadal, Soderling, Ferrer, Fed, Nole or any other decent clay court player with a bit of mental fortitude would have sent Murray packing in 3 routine sets.

Novak Djokovic Rafael Nadal


David Ferrer - Leyton Hewitt - David Nalbandian - Marcos Baghdatis - Janko Tipsarevic - Tommy Haas


AJDE NOLE!

We gave nothing chance for Chela even so the first two sets was close. Congrats Chela, good tournament and he reaches top 20 again.

Never ever give up

Grindy, but entertaining. Murray almost let the second set run away from him though. GOATing at saving BPs one minute, then not

Re: RG QF: Murray (4) def. Chela, 7-6 7-5 6-2

Chela had so many chances in the first two sets..
the only thing that decided the match is the break point conversion.
Chela made 5/17 breakpoints, while Murray made 8/16 breakpoints.

The thick legs are looking awesomely thick, this was never in doubt.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

This was a really entertaining match. Chela played pretty well especially in the first set.

Re: RG QF: Murray (4) def. Chela, 7-6(2) 7-5 6-2

67 winners in three sets, by a mile the highest in the tournament among 3 setters. Dolgo managed 68 in 4 sets, and 5 others managed 68-75 in 5 sets.

For comparison, Nadal has had 23 and 24 his last two matches, Fed 41 and 32.
