Murray not as good as he was yesterday, then again I'd say that, despite the H2H, he's more comfortable playing Djokovic than Roger, especially since this was the final.
He's beaten Federer in bigger finals. I don't think this was a choke. He just played a poor match and got outplayed.

This was a very good match. Blows away anything Nadal and Djokovic can do. These two are the best players in the world, just not when it comes to results unfortunately.

Steady on there, Djokovic is clearly better than Murray.

Clearly declining.
Says you who probably has a forehand with so much power it would struggle to skim the cream off a rice pudding...

No, they aren't.

Djokovic and Nadal are, so quit being delusional. Murray hasn't done anything for you to make an argument that he is better than Djokovic and Nadal. There's being a fan and then there's being a fanboy. You are the latter.

Good match. Andy didn't serve as well as he did yesterday. Rogi came up with the goods when he had to, just like he did in the second set tie break yesterday against Pot. The penultimate point was simply amazing. I love watching roger play.

2008/9/10(?) Rogi would probably have lost the second set after being broken back especially against Murray. I'm so glad he didn't.
