Go Andy But I don't like the way he has been acting on court lately. He is going back to the way he used to act before the Olympics and his U.S.O. wins!

Highlander is unbeatable, I fear

We will have to wait until Donald Young hits his prime to see a single Mandy loss.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Murray last two seasons is 72% in tiebreaks, more than Isner, or Federer.

Doing just enough here, but only just. Ultimately it doesn't really matter too much whether he wins or loses - a loss might even be better for him, with Shanghai coming up, and a heavy schedule the next few weeks.

You can see that in his performance, all a little bit autopilot. No feel on return in particular, very sluggish. None of that razor sharp tactical discipline of their US Open meeting either, he's basically just hitting whatever comes to mind, letting the cards fall as they will. Occasionally the impetus of big points has spurred him on, but most of the time it's a bit lacklustre.



Raonic has been excellent though, 67% first serve of course is going to be evil on these courts, and he dealt with the breakpoint well (although I doubt he makes that shot 1 in 10 times!). That i/out forehand has been brutal also, and I'm liking the netgame too. Slight criticism of his first serve return though, as usual.

The faster surface is making it a lot more difficult for Murray on return today, but I agree, Murray isn't nearly as focused as he was at the USO.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Murray's temper tantrums after every. single. point he loses are annoying as hell.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

I feel Andy will win 7-6 in the 3d with no break for whole match. Clutchray in da house.

Milos plays quality, will be tough loss for him, IMO.

Gasquet is next №1

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Stonkingly shite from Lopez.

Not seen any matches this week - Tsonga been playing well?


Edit: oh, trainer. Maybe explains it. Or maybe just embarrassed.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Milos' first serve percentage dropping in this 3rd set. Incredible backhand by Murray to take the break.

Re: 2012 Live Commentary

Even with the break, he's still yelling at himself after every point he loses, lol.

Ahhhh nonnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn (J-W on bp).

Tsonga maybe goes to sleep here, with Floppy not looking too hot.
