Watching tonight's final, courages effort from Murray but Djokovic took him out in the last two sets.
Kind of a boring final; the points were decided more by unforced errors than winning shots.
What type of final do you prefer? Federer/Nadal or Djokovic/Murray? I will take the latter.
it's not even close. Nadal - Federer has so much more drama, beyond just their playing styles being so different, they have interesting dynamic as far as personality, interaction with each other, charisma. Murray - Djokovic is, once again a great reference to that Mark Lenders 'PONG' posting on the WWW thread, like PONG the 1970s/80s video game. repetitive and boring
frankly the Djokovic - Federer matchup isn't too bad. but Murray and Djokovic are just too defensive, it's like watching two bots counter punch counter punch counter punch
who can really say they enjoyed the Australian Open final? if you love Djokovic as a fan, then cheers you were delighted with the result. but certainly the match was not of a very good caliber. I've noticed the problem with Djokovic/Murray matches is that the player that wins, wins because their opponent drops their level. every single freaking time. last night in the first set, Djokovic plays mediocre, loses the set. the next few sets Murray drops his game and loses. US Open 2012 5th set, Djokovic plays dramatically worse, loses the match
certainly there are times when the same thing happens in Rafa-Roger matches, but at least you have a handful of matches where both of them are playing amazing and winning based on how THEY PLAY rather than just waiting around for their opponent to screw up
Nadal - Federer infinitely more entertaining. Murray - Djokovic is great if you're out of sleeping pills and need to get an early start on rest for the night or whatever
