Wow Milos, i wasn´t expecting this, great serving as usual, but powerfull hitting from baseline, Murray wasn´t that bad, just Milos really played great tennis, if he can improove further his movement, BH, ROS what a big time player he will become. I think he has shot for title vs Nishikori most likely. Also this is biggest victory of his career so far vs slam champion in big SF match of 500.
Murray's amazing streak must have gone to an end, I mean he didn't lose a set being one point from winning a set more than two years - it's very long span of time, especially for a guy who plays so many matches. It's painful for him it was a 'match point set', not a 'set point set'.
stroke <- point <- game <- set <- MATCH -> round -> tournament -> season -> career
Idiotic comment just because he lost the match? Grow up man
Nah, a real slam champion would have crushed Raonic. Look at the Raonic-Federer or Raonic-Nadal matches. "Slamray" () is a mug of the highest order. If not for Nole 0.5 he would never win a slam. Watch him get bageled by Federer in Shanghai.
Murray was absolutely pathetic with his attitude though, I'm not sure I can remember a point that Milos won which Andy wasn't cursing afterwards, and Milos did win 114 points so that's a lot of misguided anger
This will hurt Murray's chances of finishing 2012 #1 or #2.
Murray I believe lost all 250 from not replaying Bangkok, and then for only making the SF here in Tokyo he loses some more big points. He likely won't win Shanghai again, in fact I don't think he'll make it past the SF, so that's another 640 point loss.
Murray is bound to finish 2012 #3. Rafa/Ferrer for #4 and #5 (probably Rafa stays 4 and Ferrer 5 or lower), and the battle for #1 and #2 is between Rogie and Djokovic.
