Wimbledon R3:  Murray def. Ljubicic 6-4 4-6 6-1 7-6(4)
The tweener drop shot at 4-*2 40-15 was awesome from Murray. Was a very topsy-turvy quite entertaining match with big momentum swings, decent but not amazing quality. Murray looked to be in control and was playing well the final two sets, but Ljubo played a great game to break when Murray served for the match at *5-4 in the fourth, especially the BH return at 15-30. Murray played a solid tiebreak and was very focused, his serve got him free points.
Andy had serve problems the first two sets but he picked up the serving and his overall quality of play and his intensity improved in the third and fourth sets.
All in all, this is a match Andy never seemed like he was going to lose. Andy can expose Ljubo's mediocre movement, dink the ball around and finesse shots where Ljubo is into uncomfortable spots, hit passing shots when Ljubo goes to the net, and Ljubo isn't consistently good at creating his own pace, especially with the forehand. Ljubo did a pretty good job of putting the pressure on Murray, but it wasn't quite enough.
Congrats to Andy, but hopefully Richie beats him on Monday, he's the much more entertaining player with the better game to watch.
