Not a great match, bit scrappy from both but Andy had enough in the thick legs when it counted and served much better.
Off the ground it was more even, with both of them making quite a few errors.
Still, 3 weeks, 3 titles - not many people have done that before. Yes he had an easy draw this week but you still have to get through it and I think he was mentally tired by the end of this tournament so it's still a good effort.
“The goal, when I took my break of six months, was doing this for the next couple years, not just for one tournament, I understand people who say, ‘Oh, this would be a perfect moment to go.’ But I feel like I’ve put in so much work, and I love it so much, and I still have so much in the tank.”
Ferrer was horrible. 44% 1st serve, 30 UE I think, just didn't show up today against a mediocre Murray. Easy 1000 points for Murray, hopefully he uses this to do well at the WTF and maybe the AO but I doubt it. We've all been here before
What a champ this Murray the level of players he had to face to get this 8th shield following up the luck when Nole had to retire last time is amazing.
I like Ferrer as a person and a player somewhat but he has no businnes playing in a HC masters final with the level of players that we have on offer these days and he should have lost to Ferrero hadn't he injured himself aswell. Horrible state in the game of tennis right about now. Hope things can pick up for London though Delpo and Soda not playing is really really bad.
Atleast its not such a big slump as WTA at the moment.
Well deserved win - served well but more unforced errors than has been the case all week. When he was aggressive Andy was impressive but I detected a nervousness and a return to an overly defensive style that has been identified with him throughout his career. Second serve % needs to improve as well
His winning streak continues. Next up Valencia or Basle although on Sky he said that he hasn't yet made up his mind whether to play that week. Will do so this coming week.
