Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Stupid shot selection from Murray, hit a ball coming down like that and it's really easy to over-topspin it short. Let it bounce, easy smash.

Re: 2013 Live Commentary

Did Murray make a tactical mistake by receiving first? He could have been ahead here instead if he held his serve till now and at 5-4 anything can happen

IIRC, Murray usually chooses to receive against most top players.

I know I just heard that, but you know what they are like! They have viewed Murray as the worlds best for the last 5 years

I think you're criminally underrating how difficult it is to execute that shot.

For starters, Murray played aggressively to get Novak in that position to begin with. Most players would have probably let the next ball bounce, and Murray took initiative in (mistakenly) doing otherwise.

I called it poor shot selection, but really, it was a high percentage aggressive shot. It was a much safer bet than playing it down the line, and Novak appeared down for the point anyway.

He did what he thought he had to do. There's no way he lost that point due to passivity.
