Still Nadal has DFed on set points, and Sharkko has hit winners on MP.
Not luck, skill. Mental toughness is a skill when it comes to sport.

Murray loves playing these serve machines. He lives to see how they cope with someone returning their every serve bomb. Evidently they do not cope very well at all. Muzza picks up where he left off at the US Open. Stunning.

Routine win, did what had to be done. I really hope he can go on a roll in the end of season, continuing the USO momentum.

Dunno why serve bots bother to show vs Murray

Raonic had an excuse.

I'm no Fakervic fan but he needs to save tennis, sadly tree trunk legs will be fresh. Interesting he's never questioned....

1. They don't bother to show, Murray dismantles them.

2. What was it then?

2. Murray was forced to suck Raonic's Popsicle in Barcelona. Milos thought he could do it again at the USO, instead Murray force fed him a cornetto and put Milos back in his place.

Andy was playing averagely and he still dominated. Only reason Karlovic made it that close was because of his serve. Easy win as expected. Karlovic can't hope to deal with a player of Andy's caliber, ever.

Only going one way when Karlovic plays the best returner of big serves in the game.

The current greatness league of active players in order of achievements to date (a factual comparison rather than fan biased assessment):

Federer 17 GS, 6 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.
Nadal 14 GS, 27 Master Series, 1 Olympic Gold.
Djokovic 9 GS, 4 Year End Masters, 24 Master Series.

Also, Andy's tiebreak record this year has been fantastic. He's a beast in tiebreaks now and he'll only get better after his slam win
