Sick match. Last two sets were brilliant. Although Murray played some great stuff, Nalby played the better tennis.

Great match, little unlucky with the net cord winner to get the final break was Dave.

Still a good showing from Nalbandian, and with a good draw could make the 2nd week of RG.

And then when serving for the match, Murray down 30-40 and he hits a rushed shot DTL than just touches the line. Andy will get taken out once he faces a decent player.

Re: Rome R2: Murray uses net cord to get past Nalbandian 6-1, 4-6, 7-5

Nalbandian very irritable in the 1st set. Got it out of his system then started playing some outstanding tennis. Pythagoras theorem was in full show, some excellent dropshots as well.

Murray breaking for *6-5 on a dead netcord on his birthday, it's your day.

Good to see a match that wasn't just ballbashing, using the whole court.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Lucky fool. Didn't do anything that entire third set bar a few good serves, but gets away with it.

Great match. Such a disappointing way to get the final break though.

I did not expect such high quality match. Good stuff.

That. No ballbashing down the middle or moonballing.
