Barcelona R2: Murray def. Stakhovsky 6-3 6-2

Andy was adequate, and didn't extend himself too much. Stakhovsky just didn't have any answers at all. Really struggled on second serve points, which highlights how Murray dominated in rallies. 39 errors from Stakhovsky.

1. Murray wins Wimbledon 2016 after Djokovic is blue shelled by Querrey. Thanks Querrey!

2. Murray wins Olympic Gold for the second time after Djokovic is blue shelled by Del Potro. Thanks Del Potro!

Another solid win for a typical british claycourt specialist.

Stakh has a really nice game but just lacks in some areas. Doesn't seem to have enough upper body strenght to generate more power to his shots. Technically he's great. Shame because I think tennis needs more versatile players like him...

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Easy win, as I expected. Andy didn't need to go above 40% today.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 3 WINS, 8 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 12 WINS, 5 finals, 13 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...
WTF: 3 semi-finals...
OTHER: Two-time Olympic gold medalist and Davis Cup champion...
MATCH WIN/LOSS: 601-171...
TITLES: 39 and counting...

Andy wins only his second ever match in Barcelona.

Last one was 6 years ago.

I was thinking the exact same thing. Part of it is he hits flat and he doesn't really hit into and through the ball like most players, he doesn't throw himself into shots. He's more of a guy who tries to do damage by timing the ball perfectly, but unfortunately he doesn't have the weight of shot required to do enough damage from the baseline and that strategy is hard to execute, which explains his inconsistency.

Didn't he make a bunch of semis on clay last year? But not here?
