Post Roland Garros R3: Andy Murray (3) vs. Santiago Giraldo: WWW?

So, who will win? Giraldo seems in good form looking at his results, though beating Tomic isn't exactly something special. Murray, meanwhile is having trouble with his back but managed to get through against Nieminen

Will Murray fight through again or will his injury allow Giraldo to win?

I think Murray will get through this, in 4.

ANDY MURRAY

SLAMS: 2 WINS, 7 finals, 9 semi-finals, 7 quarter-finals...
MASTERS: 11 WINS, 5 finals, 11 semi-finals, 18 quarter-finals...

MATCH WIN/LOSS: 558-166...

Impossible to predict as we don't know how Murray's fitness will be come Saturday.

If no real problems, Murray in 4. Fitness concerns, Giraldo could easily take it.

Not really confident here-Muzzah's had a disastrous clay season.

If the injury's legitimate (and I believe it is), then Giraldo should win this.

Re: Roland Garros R3: Andy Murray (3) vs. Santiago Giraldo: WWW?

Murray is injured and his 2012 clay level SUCKS.

He doesn't deserve to defend more than 200 points here. Giraldo should take the match.
Even a non-injured Murray playing this crappy clay season is in danger.

Ah, appeal moderation? Wanna know what appeal moderation did to me?

Murray beat Giraldo 6-1 6-2 earlier in the clay season. If Andy is 50% fit he should win in 3 or 4.

Re: Roland Garros R3: Andy Murray (3) vs. Santiago Giraldo: WWW?

Dont see the fuss with Giraldo really, good win over Tomic but I doubt he can beat Murray even at 50%. If the match actually finishes Murray will have won, Giraldo's best hope is a retirement.

Can Santi hit through Murray consistently, can't see it. He was awful against him a month or so ago.

Re: Roland Garros R3: Andy Murray (3) vs. Santiago Giraldo: WWW?

Personally, I think the question is more whether Murray will start? If his back is bad in the hours before the match, I believe that he won't play. He won't want a repeat of the events in the first half of the Nieminen match. Not worth chancing it.

If he is fit, he will win.
