Olympics R3 : Murray def. Baghdatis 4-6 6-1 6-4

What a great match to watch Baggy was nowhere to be found in the 2nd but the 2 other sets were brilliant. Even baggi showed some good form and made it a very entertaining match in his "special" way

Set 1: Baghdatis playing at 99%

Set 2: Baghdatis gifts the 2nd set

Set 3: Baghdatis tries but Murray's level rose too much



World #1.

Federer, Murray, and Wawrinka

The slice Murray hit to break back in the first set was one of the best I've ever seen in tennis. If someone finds any video, please post it.

Finally some aggressiveness with the forehand. Hope he will even further develop such mindset.

As expected Baghdatis doesn't have the fitness to play more than a set of decent tennis this far into a tournamnent.

Good job really, it's been a good day for GB so far, would have hated to see a sure fire medal get thrown away.

Semi in the bag, this time, it's Federer who gets Ferrer and Murray who gets Djokovic

It seems ridiculous to say such a thing about a professional tennis player, but Baghdatis' fitness is actually shocking.

Murray was always going to come out on top.

Shot of the match was Baghdatis netting that shoulder height forehand 30cm from the net to let Murray break in the second.
