Brisbane QF: Murray (1) def. Istomin 6-4 7-6 (7-3)

Made hard work of it but a nice straight sets win. Suspected Murray was cruising a lot here, he'll definitely have to step it up against Emperor Kei!

Not brilliant, but good enough and he is through to the semi against Nishikori.

Incidentally, it was the quarter-final rather than R3, and the tb score was 7-6(3) not (4).

It's one of those rare matches where i'm happy either way. If Muzz wins, I'm pretty sure he'll bag another title, so hurray. But it would mean more for Nishi and Murray is better with more rest, so him bowing out early would be fine by me.

Cruised through it and then sorta stepped up in intensity in the tiebreak, added a bit more power. Istomin helpfully threw in 3 UEs from 3-3 in the tiebreak and basically handed it over.

Istomin lacks the killer shot to really hurt Murray.

He had his chances though.
