Wimbledon R3: [4] 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.

Stop making topics when you don't know scoreline...

Anyway, crowd is pathetic. Acting like he already won the tournament when he just beat Lubeo of all people.

Well played for the most part, too many careless errors though.

That crowd was loving it, they could help him late.

With this level, no way Murray could reach quarters.

Gasquet can do things that Ljubo did today, but with better mobility, better play from the baseline, better returning, and better net movement. So I expect it to be a major struggle for Murray to win. He'll need to be more aggressive v Richard.

Terrible first two sets. Decent 3rd and 4th sets from Andy. I'll be putting money on Gasquet, though.

By the way, Jake Garner should be disciplined for that horrendous line call at such a huge point. He has always been a worthless umpire. Right up there with Cedric Mourier.

What a waste of life to sit here everyday doing threads who won, what you can gain doing that?

Did you actually see the match? Or checking the scoreline only and made this thread during the tie-break just to be the first to post the thread? Seems like....
And you all mugray tards still consider him a possible winner at Wimbledon? He struggled against a 32 year old, not far from a 5th set. He will be destroyed soon. Book it. Natural loser.

The match will be on Richard's racquet(and brain of course) as in all their previous meetings.
Murray will be favourite though as Gasquet can still crack at any time.

Again the wrong scoreline
Ljubo was too passive a lot more often than he should have been. Anyway, a solid tournament for Ljubo but I feel he could've done more.

Can I just say well played Ljubicic. He really made this a good match by putting up a very good fight. If more players ranked between 20 and 50 put up a fight like this, the top guys would have to dig deep more frequently, which makes for better entertainment. Well played Ljubicic. Murray was too good for Ljubicic tonight. But it was entertaining. That's what fans of tennis want.
