Miami R3: Murray def. Dimitrov 7-6(3) 6-3

Grisha

He looked great in the first set but choked it away from 5-2, 3 DFs when serving for the set (at least it wasn't 4...progress ). Murray was half asleep but his defense on big points and Grisha's legendary choking gave him the first set. Grisha was mentally hungover for the second set, hence the scoreline.

Murray was going wide or long when he tried to go for the lines, even in the second set. Not a good sign going forward.

Andy Murray

Tsonga, Wawrinka, Zverev, Sock, Thiem, Muller, Kyrgios, Stepanek

I know people will go on about his choke in the first but I was impressed with how he lived with Murray athletically for a while and his level of play generally up until serving for the set.

Promising stuff, hopefully he builds on it.

Cilic, Almagro, Wawrinka and Troicki in their most epic moments are cheapest shit for one ordinary Dimitrov's day in office

Disgraceful. 4 double faults the entire match. 3 of them when serving for the set

Re: Miami R3: Murray def. Dimitrov 7-6(3) 6-3

I am really sorry to post it a few seconds too early, I made a mistake because i actually thought it was finish.


We proudly present: Choke of the month.

And it was not even funny anymore.
Dimitrov up 3-1, can't hold serve.
Dimitrov up 4-2 again with a break.
Dimitrov hold to 5-2.
Dimitrov has not even a set point because he is too busy with double faulting.
Tie break: First minibreak from Dimitrov with fantastic tennis.
Followed by a silly mistake.
And another silly mistake to 4-3 for Murray.


+ Combined with breathtaking defense from A. Murray.

he might have been ahead and looked good for a while but the collapse was NID.Unless grigor works his head out he will amount to nothing

Re: Miami R3: Murray def. Dimitrov 7-6(3) 6-3

Murray was way too defensive, but much of that was due to Dimitrov. If this guy sorts his head out, he will reach the top 10 in no time. It's a big if though!

Didn't live up to expectations. Murray wasn't at a good level and Dimitrov choked the first set. Andy will need to up his game for sure.

Re: Miami R3: Murray def. Dimitrov 7-6(3) 6-3

Ugly match. Murray gritted through and accepted Dimi's chokes, played some good defense when he had to. Bad conditions probably had a lot to do with it, it looked humid and windy.

I hope Dimi restricts his choking to Murray and Djoko.

Hopefully Murray plays better next match.
