At least the IW curse is lifted. If Andy somehow makes the Semi Final I don't fancy his chances against Djoko King at all.
I assume you mean the first set. You can't play horrible at pro level and win 2 and 2. Simply not possible.

Sky saying he played well after being 1-5 down. I think he then played solidly, but nothing special

Six dismal games and then he was okay after that.

Larry Ellison looked desperate to see him win. IW organisers don't hide their bias for top 4 do they

The first 6 games were painful to watch. But Murray usually has scratchy first rounds, his haters are consistently disappointed.

Haters are absolute sick, just devastated. They all shot their load after Donskoy fluked the first set. It was NID though that Murray would raise his game and win easily.

Murray will be glad to have scraped through, he looked like he hadn't picked up a tennis racket since the Australian Open.

I wouldn't be shocked to see Murray come good later in the week though, we've seen this story so many times before when hes been awful early scraped through then improved round by round and gone deep in the tournament.

The Russian guy (who I've never seen before) was pretty good. Murray will not get too far with this type of game... not impressed at all .

Yeah he mostly found his normal range I think after going a double break down.

Re: Indian Wells R2: Murray mugs past Donskoy and lifts the IW curse 5-7 6-2 6-2

I advice him not to take long breaks, he was almost sleepwalking in first set but got back from score 5-1 to 5-5 and than tanked again and somehow sort it out after that , but still he struggles with his own serve and you can actually see he's capable of so much more with such variety of shots he 's able to play yet still clowns around in intorvertic manner..It's so irritating sometimes ..Just please brainwash him!

That game at 6-5* from Donskoy in the first set must be the best return game of this year by far.

Donskoy is skilled. Some good tennis from him, but after that horrible error at 2-3 30-40 match turned around.
Lu has a great chance if the serve will working.

Lol. He is obviously going to improve with each match. He always does.
