As expected.

Murray somewhat unspectacular, but in cruise control start to finish

Simon obviously still pretty dead on his feet.

Murray on cruise control. Simon was pretty tame.

Murray might struggle in the next round against Chardy because this match was easy. Will need to adjust to Chardy's firepower.

Only Del Potro can take him out before the semis, and he won't. Nadal is winning the AO, bet your house on it.

Easy for Murray, as expected.

Cruise control from the Highlander.

The Chardy match could get interesting - remember Chardy beat Murray last year.

Okay, pleased for the Murray win, but more thoughts are on SImon... Respect to him and hope he recovers well.

Mark Lenders banged your girlfriend, I'm sorry to tell you that mate.

Re: AO R4: Murray warriors past Simon 6-3 6-1 6-3

Nice try Gilles, he just was at zero in the tank. He couldn't train properly because of his injury at Sydney and wasn't in his best shape to recover after that long five-setter. Good to see him finish out the match and give Murray some rallies, several players would have retired.

Re: AO R4: Murray warriors past Simon 6-3 6-1 6-3

Love you Gilles!

I'm honestly hoping Chardy can upset Murray though

Novak Djokovic — Juan Martin del Potro
Seppi — Garcia-Lopez — Simon — Klizan — Gasquet — Paire — Pouille — Halys
and every single Australian player out there

Re: AO R4: Murray warriors past Simon 6-3 6-1 6-3

bit of a weird match with the result being NID before the first ball was hit. Have to give credit for Simon for showing up and trying to play. He was fully drained though.
